@bimmy-lee a fantastic album that.

I braved a blizzard on Saturday to catch The Handsome Family, they were awesome as always.
I’m listening to them as I type, squashed on a packed train

@JoeDiddley - It sure is my friend, it sure is. Seems to get progressively more inebriated as the album rolls on. By the last few songs, I think they’re just punching their instruments. Maybe each other too. I really love RL. Sound Machine Groove is my favorite album. Or maybe Mississippi Hill Country Blues is my favorite? Or this one. Hard to decide. Years ago, Fat Possum made a documentary about some of their artists, and RL stole the show. They went to his house. It was surreal. He hangs out under the clothesline and in broken down vehicles. I was supposed to see him play in ‘02, but he had to cancel the day of because of health problems. They got T-Model Ford to play instead, and they had to have police officers drag him off stage about half way through the show. He couldn’t stand up, and he was threatening to fight people. Dead breed.

I just recently discovered The Handsome Family. I enjoy them a great deal. Hope that packed train ride was a quick one.

@bimmy-lee awesome. I also have the dvd of that documentary somewhere. I like the scene where the label are worried about going to jail as RL is claiming welfare.

I never got the chance to see him, I love most of his albums. I did see T Model Ford a couple of times though, Robert Belfour once too.
But yeah, that breed are mostly gone now sadly.

@JoeDiddley - Oh man, that was hilarious. Committing welfare fraud on camera for, like, $58. What I wouldn’t give to have a beer with RL. Or just one night at Junior’s Juke Joint when he was playing. I wouldn’t get in anyone’s way. I’d just stand in the corner and mind my own business.

Belfour was great, such haunting vocals and unique guitar sound. His song writing kind of stands out as well. He’s very other worldly, his songs seem spiritual, but they’re not, but they might be. I think it’s his connection to Otha Turner. It gets very mysterious in the Hill Country if you get tangled up with the Turners and the Hemphills.

It’s fun to talk about these guys. I don’t know many people who listen to them, though some of the big names got big, multi continent tours in before they died, and some of them are kind of popular in punk rock.

@bimmy-lee I know what you mean. I would have loved to have witnessed Junior’s joint too, but may have stuck out like a sore thumb, being English.

It seems that most of my favourite artists are dead. And I regret some I could have seen, but then I count myself lucky for being around just in time to catch a few legends. My kids won’t get that opportunity.

@JoeDiddley - No they won’t, but as you share (this or any music) with your kids, you’re enacting a special kind of stewardship that can help ensure the art passes on to a younger generation. You’re creating legacy for the artists. It’s noble work, and I’ve found there’s nothing more fulfilling than sharing something you love with your kids and seeing the love reciprocated, as I’m sure you’ve found too.

Coldplay's A Rush Of Blood to Head (2002)
One of their best albums, I think.

This blue eye percieves all things conjoined. The past, the future, and the present. Everything flows and all is connected. This eye is not merely seen reality. It is touching the truth. Open the eye of truth... There is nothing to fear.

I was the kind of kid who, if I knew my father had listened to rock'n'roll, I would have listened to opera.
Many years ago I found my father's small record collection in my grandma's attic. He had a lot of jazz records, most of which I had as well - Coltrane, Don Cherry, Ornette Coleman, Pharoah Sanders etc. There was also Apostrophe by Frank Zappa, with a little note written inside from my mother (it was a present she had given him for his birthday in the 70s).

I was pretty much a kid who had to do the opposite of what his parents liked/wanted/did. I'm like that old Jonathan Richman tune where he loves the Fender Stratocaster because it's "everything your parents hated about rock'n'roll".

My brother is pretty much the same. For years he listened exclusively to stuff I didn't like. It's only recently that he has broadened up his horizons. Nowadays, he would text me stuff like "Have you ever heard of this great brazilian band called Os Mutantes??" and I'm like "Dude, we used to listen to it in the car when I drove you to school 15 years ago...". My brother is a drummer, so like all drummers, he has sh!te taste in music anyway.

Top-10 games I played in 2017: The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild (WiiU) - Rogue Legacy (PS3) - Fallout 3 (PS3) - Red Dead Redemption (PS3) - Guns of Boom (MP) - Sky Force Reloaded (MP) - ...

I bought a greatest hits album from The Cranberries yesterday for £3. I think it's found its home in my car, great for long journeys.

If you like alternative stuff from the 90's or just good music in general, I highly recommend it as a gateway to the band.

Wow, back from the dead. I have no shame, I’ll pile on. Gza, Liquid Swords. Can’t remember if I’ve referenced it here before, probably have.

@Lloiddd - Cool video. Haven’t seen that one before.

No I'm not, I'm French.
I really appreciate music from everywhere in the world and when I've discovered a gothic Turkish band I was like blown away... ^^

PS : the track of Nick Hakim that you just posted is really good BTW.

@Cobalt Yeah I've been a Nick Hakim fan since...probably 2013. He's got good songs (mostly on my sleep playlist). This one for example.
