    Listening to some Queen today - mostly Queen 1 and 2 albums. My fave band of all time but I try and avoid listening to full albums, focusing on individual tracks every now and then, as it always makes me feel my melancholy blues to listen to too many tracks. But today was a "screw that." for reasons I won't go into.

    30th anniversary next year Freddie went. How the hell did that time go so quick? Can still vividly remember my mum waking me up at 6am that morning to tell me the news, crying her eyes out. That was my version of the "you can always remember where you were when you heard JFK died" moment.

    Black sabbath's first LP from back in 1970. Still sounds great.
    Yeah, the 1st 30 seconds of the 1st (and title) track, is just unworldly...

  • Apologies for the depressing post last night - one of those days I'm afraid that I rarely have, usually I'm a bright-side-of-life person.

    Think I'll listen to some Radiohead or Morrissey and cheer myself up today

    A swedish band i'd never heard of and came up in a random youtube hunt.

    I love it! It’s like a geriatric Matrix video and Dieter Meier is looking like late-era Captain Beefheart.

  • I know it’s not on Troublegum, but I always thought it was weird that Therapy’s cover of Diane got played on the chart show one Saturday afternoon. Subject matter of that song is a bit touchy at the best of times. Pretty sure the original version caused quite a stir, because Husker Du released it not that long after Diane was killed.

    I didn't even know it was a cover! Great song, that. :)

    Hehe! These all (except Rust In Peace) came out while I was at high school, from 91-94. All of these albums got passed around my form group a lot. :)
  • I sat in the weirdos corner in my form for the last 2 years of school, with a rich kid who was bang into hip hop, a scruffy lank haired kid who liked Indie type stuff, and the only kid in the class who liked metallica...The rest of the class were divs who listened to stuff like.Clock, and QFX :))

  • I used to but all i have now is Pearl Jam and Megadeth on CD, the rest were on cassette and god knows what happened to them, probably loaned them out and never got them back :))

    Not a fan of the Smashing Pumpkins myself, couple of songs are OK, but nah...

    Never liked Megadeth though, although a lot of the metal kids at school loved them. Quite a lot of back patches on denim jackets if I remember :))

    My form room for the last two years was the art room, which had quite a strange seating layout. You still had the clever lot at the front and the "louts" at the back, but it left a kind of "neutral" bunch in the middle who seemed to mingle and get on with everyone. That first registration of the day was like a swap meet, everyone passing music and games (mostly NES/SNES/Master System/Megadrive stuff at that point) around. Good times! :)

    I remember one kid got really hacked off with me once because I'd borrowed a Floyd album (Wish You Were Here) off someone one week and then a Prodigy album (Experience) the next. He actually said something along the lines of "are you a raver, or are you into rock? You can't like both." A bunch of us laughed at him and he didn't really say much after that, like he'd instantly realised how stupid he sounded. :))

  • This takes me back, I looked up Desmond Dekker to educate my missus about who was first with that sound - first and best by far.

    depends how you define first, desmond, laurel Aitkin, Millie small etc were pretty early and broke it to the UK etc, but Ska started as calypso (where you got the likes of Mighty Sparrow and Lord Kitchener), also The likes of Bob Marley and Lee scratch Perry were instrumental in its early sound

  • Bob Marley was a protege of Desmond Dekker and you could argue that Harry Belafonte popularized the calypso sound in the UK. Don't forget the Equals either!
