Secret Machines "Ten Silver Drops" - they are in the register of prog rock acts but they are very modern sounding and will crossover to indie band fans.

Tangerine Dream - Tangram. Or at least it would be if my job allowed me to play music. <img border="0" alt="[Pissed]" title="" src="graemlins/pissed.gif" /> Fortunately my low capacity organic MP3 player (or brain) allows me to listen to it anyway. smile

Finally got my hands on the Nation 12 reissue. It's interesting to hear how some of the tracks have been recorded again for later releases like Leaving/Through my sleeping and Invisible women

Luckily I can listen to music at work, I don't know if would have survived without it. Must be terrible being denied that right frown

Gave in and played Ultravox 'hammersmith '80',
and one track by 'fatal charm' the support for that night. And some cath oceans live. The real atempt to not play Ultravox though starts monday.

It just occured to me that both bands are from Canada, bit of a co-incidence. A lot of good music came from Canada at the time though, Rational Youth is another favourite of mine.

Valeriun,

I got the Eno/Cale album some years ago. Some excellent tracks. Spinning Away is one of my favourites. It was used on a tv commercial about ten years ago for Burtons (a men's clothes chain)here in the uk. Suprised it was never released as a single.One Word was released as a single instead back in '90.

Si,

I received my copy of Only After Dark yesterday. Excellent compilation. My first chance to here The Normal track. Couldn't locate it previously anywhere else. Andy

It's a very "balearic" track that (I don't know a better term laugh ), it has a very summery vibe to it.

Listening to a couple of old Wire albums today, Pink Flag and Chairs Missing. Must admit I like their late 80's output better...

Re: What are you listening to now? - Fri, 12 May 2006 03:36:00

About six years ago steven i decided that playing music for over 20 years may be just a way of wasting my time.
Every Christmas time since, ive thought of not playing anything for an whole year, jan 1st - dec 31st.
But thats all i ever did, just think about it.
So ive decided to not play anything for an whole week.
If i feel i can do without it easy for a week, i may decide to stop for a year, or permanant.

Re: What are you listening to now? - Fri, 12 May 2006 14:35:00

Listening to FUNDAMENTAL by the PSB. Well I posted somewhere else here about the track I'M WITH STUPID. The album itself now is somehow different, more a concept-album I think. I'M WITH STUPID is PSB "as it's best" (meaning as everybody know's them from the 80s and 90s). The album itself is somehow more quiet and melancholic. I did not payed much attention to the lyrics until now, only talking about the music. Next spins are then more focused to the lyrics. Thanks to Mr. Tennant's remarkable voice and his spoken "schoolbook"-english, this should not be a big problem. I like it, but like all albums from the last time, it needs to grow I think.

Hi Valeriun, thanks for the intrest.

I did survive, went to seven and a half days.
I played 'the garden' last night and the first few minutes felt better than ever.

Found a lot of other things to do when not playing music though.
Have decided i was wasting too much time with too much music, but if i dont play any then im wasting time that way too.
So ive decided to do other things in life more than before, but play about one album a day.
I would be wasting my time if a gave up music for good.

So i am listening to more stuff than i had done for ages; Tom Verlaine's new cd "Songs and other things" is my main listening and i also got Fiona Apple's debut, and one by the Fiery Furnaces (also their debut).

funny you should say that - my ex girlfriend's blog sez she is listening to "The Cream of Clapton" which i've also got. Me and a mate have been looking at vid clips of 1970s progressive type bands. One of the funniest was Focus doing "Hocus Pocus", also a bit of Genesis "Giant Hogweed", some Jethro Tull "Living in the Past", and some slightly better stuff eg Peter Hammill and Van Der Graaf Generator, a bit of Kevin Ayers / Soft Machine, Robert Wyatt, John Cale (ex Velvet Underground).

Hmmm, All Music Guide review of Zero Zero (which I actually bought a single from but can't remember the name...):

Review by Dave Sleger
No Mike Batt solo effort would be conceived without a convoluted or peculiar theme at its foundation. Zero Zero tells the story of a futuristic civilization where the "disease" of love and emotion no longer exists, resulting in a less complicated existence. The production was adapted for both stage and television, but this is also Mike Batt's new wave recording. He drops references to Gary Numan and Ultravox throughout this album. While he still utilizes orchestral accompaniment (the Sydney Symphony Orchestra), more attention is given to synthetic keyboard effects and programmed rhythms. Recorded in Australia, Zero Zero employs the services of guitarists Tommy Emmanuel and Rex Groh, both noted Australian musicians. Batt again tackles all lead vocals, leading to the conclusion that, of all the styles he's experimented with in the past, his voice is best suited for new wave music. This music was composed as part of a theatrical production, so it's important to keep in mind that the oftentimes disjointed musical themes are intended to accompany visuals as well. This is very creative music, but probably too involved and unsettling for mainstream new wave and pop fans. It is perhaps better suited for fans of the more avant-garde works by Bill Nelson and David Bowie.

See, what I meant? A simple word can guide so totally wrong... No Wombles-songs on it, also never heard from them. It's a very old compilation with songs from SCHIZOPHONIA, CARAVANS, WAVES, ZERO ZERO and the TAROT SUITE.
Beside this, your post reminds me to another thing, not posted here on UVOX-Island so far I think: I also highly recommend PHILHARMANIA from Mr. Batt. You will be surprised whats on it (no, again no Wombles wink ), search for this album... (not Google this time, have a walk to a good record shop. Read the tracklist, sure you'll be surprised, pls. listen to it...)

I am a little bit keen on classic tracks too. This took me wayyyyyyyyyyyy back this morning. Talking about the album ON THE THIRD DAY by E.L.O. Simply perfect for this morning. Having breakfast outside, watching the birds. Additionally then this wonderful album from 1973. This is love to music, honouring classics. Last track based on music from Peer Gynt by Edvard Grieg (In The Hall Of The Mountain King), simply awesome.... If you can, take a listen too!

Dug it out of the loft last week after being driven mad by where I'd heard a Chemical Brothers piece of music before. Very very simular to Face Of The Eighties on this album.

I picked up the Nag, Nag Nag compilation and re-discovered 'No GDM' by Gina X. I'd forgotten all about the song and it still sounds fantastic. Also features 'Baby Turns Blue' by the Virgin Prunes and 'Zerox' by Adam & the Ants - I thought I was listening to Franz Ferdinand eek Will have to revisit their early works.

Re: What are you listening to now? - Thu, 29 Jun 2006 06:50:00

I remember buying a Virgin Prunes 12 inch single on a drunken lads' holiday in Bournemouth aged 20. The place wasn't as hip as it is now so we found one bar till we were chucked out at about 11 then had a drunken curry and staggered back along the seafront lol. (Beach in the day was fab though !). My friend met his wife on that holiday too.

Anyhow this was prompted by the sudden recollection of the Prunes; so i hope it counts as on topic. lol :p . The other thing i bought there was by Felt "Crumbling The Antiseptic Beauty" mini-album.

It's good to have him back on stage, how does he sound these days? It was a great line up this weekend at the 02 festival with Dolby and Depeche Mode sharing the same stage.

I've been digging out some old new wave tapes of late like "The Books - Expertise" and "The Cut - Silent Movies" and given them a spin. Still they prove a pretty good listen

Answer to that is simple......Better than ever

He's back to his one man electonic show, goggles and all. So well gone is his trad band approach. He's not in it for the money as Mr Dolby is in the very,very rich league as it's his company that makes the software for live ringtones in over half the mobile phones sold in the world which is why he's been away from music for so long.

Dust down thy Fairlight and groove....Dolby is back. laugh

When i was an import / export agent at the airport (Heathrow) the driver Dave was a good mate; and he lent me a punk / new wave compilation. Now the point is that there was an early New Wave version of the song "Talk Talk" on there - deffo same song, and written by Mark Hollis.
Anyone know anything about that?

No, but I remember watching Talk Talk win a live (performance) Battle of the Bands contest on TV way back in the day with Today. They were dressed in the white suits that they were still wearing around the time they broke through as well.

Prize for this contest was a recording contract with EMI and I only remember Talk Talk from the lineup as I remember thinking that I'd buy that as a single. And I did when it eventually came out...

Yep bought The Scream Deluxe 2 CD, Join Hands and Kalie..that one a few weeks back. I must be honest the first 2 didn't push my buttons (20 odd years since I last heard them) as they sound very dated but Kaleidoscope (there I said it) is more up my street Swirling Banshees in their golden period. Like you Ju Ju is my fav but if you have it then hold on because next year they are releasing a Deluxe 2CD edition.

Also bought the DVD Nocternal which is them live back in 83 when Rob Smith is in the band. A wierd documentary on it as well based around Alice in Wonderland.

Nice one Si made me laugh. Mather F****R excited

Re: What are you listening to now? - Wed, 12 Jul 2006 20:31:00

Listening recently to one of my favourite albums, "Equinoxe" by Jean Michel Jarre. The 24bit remaster of this sounds fantastic, arguably better than the original vinyl. I also thoroughly recommend Bill Nelson's "The Love That Whirls" which is a real gem. Track 11, Portrait of Jan With Flowers, has to be one of the most beautiful instrumentals ever.

A list of some of my other favourites I've been spinning lately:-

Tangerine Dream- Hyperborea
Talk Talk- It's My Life
Vangelis- Spiral/ Albedo 0.39
Art of Noise- In Visible Silence
Kraftwerk- Electric Cafe
Depeche Mode- Construction Time Again
Men Without Hats- Rhythm of Youth
Rational Youth- Cold War Night Life

2. Muse-Starlight
3. NIN-Closer
4. Depecche Mode-Damaged People
5. Keane-Under The Iron Sea
6. Messengers-Art
7. Visage-Move Up

No doubt it will all change again tomorrow wink

Was giving 'Taking Tiger Mountain' some serious rotation the last few days, but that's all over now as the re-masters of the (real) Ultravox albums arrived in the post yesterday. Isn't the live version of 'The Man Who Dies Every Day' just the best thing EVER? Bill's Odyssey sounds like it's going to melt!!!!

Re: What are you listening to now? - Sat, 15 Jul 2006 19:47:00

And now for something completely different: Today I am listening to another PREMIUM GOLD COLLECTION by EMI from 1996. I gave HOT CHOCOLATE a try today, just wondering that they are so soulish and funky, because in my mind were only some of their really great disco-hits. A little bit outdated today but it has still its charme and I love their rare heavy and agressive guitar-riffs they had in many of their songs (the one from EVERY ONE's A WINNER for example). Just listening to track 17, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. For ages I tried to find out which song from another band was corresponding with that one somehow. Now I know, it's THE VISITORS from ABBA. Sometimes it needs years... Put the lyrics beside and just let the music do the work, is somebody of you able to feel the same? Meaning not that the songs are equal or have something to do one with each other, but there is a similarity somehow I can't describe.

Re: What are you listening to now? - Sat, 15 Jul 2006 19:50:00

Hot Chocolate !!! How cool. I haven't thought of them in years. Were they the one that did "You sexy thing" ???
Posted by: BlueVision

Re: What are you listening to now? - Sat, 15 Jul 2006 20:19:00

Yes, it's their song. One of their hits. Do you know EMMA? The Sisters Of Mercy made a cover of it some years ago. But nobody covered the remaining HC-music until now, so we should do it and make a lot of money with it. All we need is some SEXY THINGS, ON A BACKSEAT OF A CADILLAC. Ok, I will stop this...

Re: What are you listening to now? - Sun, 16 Jul 2006 00:17:00

Cromlech: I LOVE that song. It is worth playing over and over.

BlueVision: I got Vision Thing. Like I said, it was in the sale bin so I figured I would give it a shot since I read posts mentioning it. Sorry, but I find it unplayable; and I am open to lots of things. What is their story as I had never ever heard of them before? Do they wear lederhosen wink ?

Since we were talking of Hot Chocolate......do you like Kool and the Gang? Even tho I am not into that type of music, sure gets you up and dancing!!!! And I remember reading that you like to dance laugh
Posted by: BlueVision

Re: What are you listening to now? - Sun, 16 Jul 2006 01:48:00

VISION THING is not a bad album, but unfortunally there are only some of there greatest hits on it like MORE, VISION THING and DETONATION BOULEVARD, not forgetting DOCTOR JEEP. A better choice for a "taster" would be their 1st compilation A SLIGHT CASE OF OVERBOMBING. I like their album FLOODLAND very much. But we are drifting to far away, it's more and more off-topic. But let me say finally, that their song TEMPLE OF LOVE is a milestone, the voice of Ofrah Haza is simply wonderful and it matches this song so wonderful perfectly. And you can trust me, the sisters are also for sure not wearing this special kind of clothing for the legs...
Kool and the gang... well I never liked them much, swapped immediately away from MTV if a video of them got a play. But they also had their moments. It's sometimes good party-music, I remember songs like CELEBRATION or REGGAE NIGHTS. But thats all.

edit:
sorry i forgot, you asked something...
hope here\'s the answer...

Today: THE SPLIFF RADIO SHOW.
This is the first album from one of my favourite Berlin bands (SPLIFF), a kind of radio-rock-opera in english language from 1980. A word on SPLIFF: SPLIFF was founded by 4 musicians from the NINA-HAGEN-BAND after their unpeaceful split from NINA because of their behave. SPLIFFS music is very fresh, I am old-fashioned, like the Simmons SDS-7 drums. wink
If you are interested in a piece of Berlin's and Germany's music-history, the CD is from CBS (CDCBS 32369). It's a great part of my music-past, my roots. Thinking about this now a little bit deeper, I think this the initiator for my change from punk into a more melodic new-romantic-melodic-pop-sound. However.
So that you know what you have to expect, there are some english-speaking comments here , the CD itself is probably cheaper if you get it from AMAZON.DE if you are interested.

Did you know that you can buy this track as a b-side on a 12" picture disc, direct from the Mute website? If you have a good turntable and amplifier it should sound even better than the CDS edition.

The World of Tomorrow album is fantastic too. It's a wonder these guys didn't have more commercial success, especially among Kraftwerk fans.

I have all of Komputers EPs which I think are ace but I was a little let down by the album itself. I just feel it's a little bit too much tongue in cheek for comfort. It's weird though that Komputer didn't make more of an impact at the time, seeing how Ladytron for instance was embraced by the press and public at large when they appeared.

I have Komputer's second album as well which is a totally different kettle of fish, not my thing at all but I guess they just can't stop being innovative (which essentially is a good thing).

In about two weeks time I'll be seeing Kraftwerk live, hopefully they'll be playing Neon lights too smile

I haven't heard the Market Led album but I've been told it's radically different to World of Tomorrow. Apparently there are 2 unreleased albums by them in the vaults which I think are more akin to their Kraftwerk sound, according to the sleevenotes for the Robopop Vol.1 compilation CD. It includes a track from this material called My Private Train which has echoes of Looking Down on London. It sounds as if it was recorded not long after 1998.

I also saw their promo for Terminus on YouTube yesterday. So far it's the only one by them I've come across.

Yeah, I downloaded MPT from their site. Pretty nice track smile

"Market Led" I only recommend for people who are into minimal techno.

I like the "John Came" album though, it's pretty relaxing to listen to. The "I Start Counting" 80's stuff is also nice smile

Not my favourite band, but it's quality music. Their last video (or was it just the one before that?) is nice, starting in the 50s-look and then it goes over the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s looks until today. This is not new, Europe and some other bands did it already in the same way before them (Ärzte from Berlin too). But they made it in a perfect way.
There are some highlights in that video (jumping like David Lee Roth or the Cobain grunge-part). So it's really good music, but not my preferred one.

they're good to play oin guitar because they're all catchy rythems and everybody knows them. im not to keen on their first two albums because John Frusciante is missing and the album 'one hot minite isnt as good as some of the others because Frusciante is absent frown the rest is brilliant though excited

the RHCP are really big here, Steven, but throughout the years I really couldn't get into them. My fave of theirs is Under the Bridge.

Re: What are you listening to now? - Sun, 23 Jul 2006 23:23:00

i dunno what my fav of their songs is...
at the moment it is californication but yesterday it was scar tissue, it changes all the time so i dont really have a favorite that stands out from the rest. under the bridge is good, too.

Sold On Song - a BBC2-concert-recording from 8th of may this year from the Mermaid-Theatre London with the Pet Shop Boys and the BBC Concert Orchestra and 600 invited guests. You can download it here on DIME .

I saw PSB last thursday in Dresden performing their "skyscraper-sinfonie" (this is my own translation of it). An awesome project, unfortunally the links I can give you are all in german language. this could give you an idea
Dresden is celebrating its 800th birthday and they performed together with the Dresden sinfonics at germanys longest one-piece-building-complex a wonderful show. A trip through the history were the lights of the windows of the building formed the yearcounter and some words, around an installed bigscreen. PSB on top of the roof. Some nice shots about german history (fall of the wall and so on) were also visible, then Potemkin. Like PSB or not, this blew me away, a wonderful idea.

FUSE is what is getting airplay today; they do top ten countdowns for different categories but they also show alot of indie and alternative (just have to know when that is on).......lots of stuff I have never heard of..........but that is what is great about it.

continuing with NUMAN: Strange Charm and Scarred today. I was surprised about the pop-style of STRANGE CHARM but I really "rediscovered" SCARRED. I forgot I own this excellent double-CD-set. For my taste, it is also a good idea to start with this album to get an idea about Gary Numan if you are not that much into compilations and looking more for originals. Then take this one. An excellent recording.

No - its not just you.
There's talk of this in the re-mastered CDs thread.

I think it sounds not-very-good and done-in-a-hurry.

While the doors still open i would like to say, theres not enough bass on all three albums IMO.
Especially when played on small headphones.
Its gonna be hard to leave the original cds alone for a while. nervouslaugh

Mrs H and I saw them a couple of years ago and they were superb. Mrs H is most definitely not a fan but she really enjoyed it. Have you got the DVD yet? Well worth it. laugh

Listened to the She Wants Revenge cd about midnite. It's very good in my opinion. Quite corny in some ways as it seems to have every 80s synth / post punk cliche going. But i loved that period and i don't think many people on this site would be disappointed. Especially if they get it for £7.99 at HMV Store like i did. lol wink

Thanks for taking the time to download and play my stuff - I'm happy to hear you like it. Nice to know it's doing its job!

I'm pleased with 'Discovery', my latest stuff - though I could go on tweaking forever...

I'll second that. Actually I rate Dare! as highly as Reproduction and Travelogue. Those 3 albums are untouchable!

It was nice to see Phil at John's gig recently.

It's probably best described as out-takes from the "Computer World" album - very good with a few filler tracks. If you try Karl Bartos and click on Sound there are short extracts from each of the tracks from "Communication".

If I recall, his first album was under the band name Electrik Music (spelling) and is called "Esperanto". It's not bad. Again, it's a bit Kraftwerky as you would expect. He did do another album in between "Esperanto" and "Communication". I don't know what it's called and, from what others have said, it is more 60's guitar pop rather than electronic. I've also heard it described as total crap.

Link Thingy is also worth a read, from the bottom of page 1. smile

Re: What are you listening to now? - Thu, 17 Aug 2006 01:23:00

I would also describe (hem hem) Communication as a bit like Kraftwerk would have sounded if they'd not gone all digital sampling mad (ie Electric Cafe) and stayed more rooted in the Man Machine/Computerworld synthetics/robotic sounds stuff.

I did find that while I loved in on first listening and played it to death for a week or so, I did start to tire of some of it - there are a few filler tracks, 'tis true. There you go Pete, I'm agreeing with you... wink smile

Re: What are you listening to now? - Thu, 17 Aug 2006 02:28:00

I've been playing the samples on his site and on iTunes. It sounds interesting - well, more precisely it just sounds like Kraftwerk, but with Ralf Hutter's vocals replaced with a 1960s Cyberman.

I really like the sound of the music, though I'm not sure I could stand so much cyberman vocal! I'd like to hear the whole album, and it probably has to be heard thoroughly to be appreciated.

Yes the very same one.

After Neu! 75, he teamed up with Roedelius and Moebius of Cluster under the moniker of Harmonia and released 2 albums. There was a 3rd Harmonia album with Eno in the line up. More synths than guitar here.

Simultaneously he embarked on a solo career. His 70s albums Flammende Herzen, Sterntaler and Katzenmusik were fairly succesful albums involving Jaki Liebezeit of Can on drums and Conny Plank producing. In the 80s further solo albums followed, the sound becoming more Vangelis and less Krautrock. Perhaps very Eno. He still tours with one of the Cluster guys. Suedseewellen is his best of his recent releases. His most recent release Remember the Great Adventure didn´t match the beauty of Suedseewellen.

Oops I forgot. Neu! reformed in the early 80´s to release the Neu! 4 album only available in Japan on Captain Trip Records. Now deleted as Michael was not in favour for the release. He felt it wasn´t completed. Klaus Dinger, his Neu! buddy, is very liberal in his actions and managed to get a few copies out before Michael stopped it. Vielen danke Klaus!!From this album Schoene Welle is my favourite.

I like Michael´s and Klaus´ style, particularly their synth music.

For Xmas-time I aim to get the Cluster collection. Cluster has been recommended ahead of Tangerine Dream and Can. Tangerine Dream never heard any of their records. Can, not really my cup of tea except for the brilliant I Want More.

Enjoy
Chris C wink

Hi Valeriun,

I'm afraid to say I don't know what he's up to these days, but thanks to Chris C's illuminating post I can add that Rother was gigging with Moebius at a small bar here in Glasgow. I'm really sorry to have missed the gig, as everything I've heard from the guy I've enjoyed. It was Midge (the artist formerly known as Beloved Leader) who introduced me to Rothers music, and from what I can remember 'Reap The Wild Wind' owes much to his influence.

Hi Maryann,

sod the approval, I'm sure you'll enjoy them. 'Give Up' is the album I've got and my favourite tracks are, The District Sleeps Tonight, This Place is a Prison and Nothing Better. Excellent, poppy, electro-shit.

and, just to get back on topic, I'm now listening to Kate Bush - The Ninth Wave, God Bless you Katherine.

Re: What are you listening to now? - Mon, 21 Aug 2006 13:22:00

I watched three old "DR.MABUSE"-movies at the weekend, there was a 6 hours-movie night on TV I recorded. A little bit outdated, but I was keen on these special movie characters (Fantomas, Dr. Mabuse and so on) when I was a boy, so it was fun watching it again. Finally this gave me the idea to search for A SECRET WISH by PROPAGANDA and finally I found it. Great record. Trevor Horn produced this german band, they had also huge success in the UK. Somebody here heard some material from their newest album from 2006? If not already done or you have no idea about the band, pls. have a look for it!

Rother and Moebius worked together with Roedelius in the band Harmonia in the 70's, sounds like they could have been playing some of their old stuff at gig maybe? I've never heard their albums unfortunately, but I really enjoy Rother's Neu! stuff smile

Revisiting some old stuff today: Prince - Sign "O" the times. An album that hasn't aged to well IMO.

I must admit I hold a big grudge against the little fella. If his lighter-than-light funk hadn't become so popular in the 80's I guess Numan never would have made "Outland" or "Machine + Soul" either wink

Hi Danny!

Well how about that! Sterntaler and Flammende Herzen could have been the albums that Midge raved about. There´s also an element of Isi from Neu! 75 in Reap The Wild Wind but Midge has the answers of course. Check out the 3 La Dusseldorf albums (Klaus Dinger´s band post Neu!). Silver Cloud, Rheinita and Ich Liebe Dich are a selection of each. Out of this world stuff!

On another note, in Midge´s autobiography there´s a comment by Thin Lizzy "It´s Midge again with his bleeps!" This is referring to Midge´s liking of the YMO (Yellow Magic Orchestra). Technodelic has been cited, time and again, as important as The Man Machine in Synth Music but this was released in 1982 eek . Midge was probably playing to Phil and the boys YMO and Solid State Survivor. Funny enough Eric Clapton covered Behind the Mask from SSS. Strange Brew!!!! biglaugh

YMO collection coming soon to Chris C´s stereo!

I heard Bjork's Human Behavior for the first time last night and really liked it. Can anyone recommend a Bjork cd as I have none of her stuff.

Other listens of mine:

Clash........London Calling
Rancid........Ruby SoHo

and IMHO, those 2 songs beat anything the Sex Pistols ever ever did. Sorry to jump on a cultural icon but Sex Pistols were never about music, only fashion and spitting and making money (while pretending they weren't).
Personally, I like the Gary Oldman version of Sid.
IMO of course

Queen - Flash Gordon Soundtrack ( Gordon's alive?!?!?!?!? )

I think the issue was the way they were promoted here. Especially Amy. That is why lots of us were disappointed. Nothing against them and she has a wonderful voice. It is just that we all thought we were getting goth, hence the disappointment. I didnt even know they had something new....they don't get any airplay at all anymore.

Thomas as regards SWR - yes you are right - i have also heard touches of Richard Butler (Psychedelic Furs) style cockney inflections, and Joy Division / Cure style guitar. Also reminded a lot of Michael Gyra / Swans.

Thats not the problem with Evanescence Maryann, she is a goth be it 'rock' songs or 'ballads'.
Its that mixture that made the 'fallen' album as great as it is. Of cause its gothic in some ways, but theres so much more too, not less. smile
Posted by: maryann

Re: What are you listening to now? - Sun, 27 Aug 2006 03:47:00

Sorry to disagree with newvox and SiW.

I wanted Goth, not ballads therefore I felt tricked. Not arguing the merits of the music.
And I was not the only one that felt that way.
No dis to either of you. Just cannot help how I felt.

I personally would put that cd in the "most disappointing" thread. In fact I have not played it since it was released.
Maybe I will give it another shot since SiW and newvox feel strongly about it.

When I saw the Bravery as the opening act of Depeche Mode, it was a shock:
- 1st, the sound was too loud, it was a bit awful + i really had the impression that it was mainly playback guitars, but well, i do not really mind if there is a bit of playback ('ive seen so many thing that you couldn't beleive...)...
- 2nd: it sounds a lot like a few tracks i am working on (ones i began last summer but had to stop for i was buzy elsewhere): grr <img border="0" alt="[Pissed]" title="" src="graemlins/pissed.gif" /> , i was a bit upset, even though my tracks are a bit different...
- but well, on the positive side, may be there is something in the air that makes this kind of music being done (never heard of "the killers" btw).

ps: i hope to bring something out by christmas, only 4 or 5 tracks....

end of self promotion ;-)

Self promotion is acceptable. Got my curiousity going now, Mehdi.

Funny about The Killers, I always thought they were from the UK but they are from Las Vegas. There was some rivalry between them and The Bravery though they do not sound alike at all.

The 2nd CD I got from my friend last friday will be released on September 21st this year, it's GET THE MESSAGE - THE BEST OF ELECTRONIC. What I have now is a precopy, the final CD's content will be different for sure, so you will get no further details (tracklisting and so on), what I can show you is the german AMAZON-link to this CD. What can you expect? You should look for this CD if you're a fan of New Order, the Smiths or the PSB. On my CD you can hear some wonderful tracks from Bernard Sumner, Johnny Marr, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe. And really, I could swear it's New Order when listening to the 1st tracks, then from time to time Smith-style-elements coming up and for sure you will identify PSB also immediately. Look for it if you go to your record-dealer next time, give it a spin there.

I'm thinking of course of the wonderful and fiery "Set The House Ablaze" !!

And, Flip, that Napoleon record was going to be covered by The Fall as they have a penchant for odd covers. It's one of Mark E.Smith's fave songs apparently ! LOL :p

Machine and Soul is a bit like the plague. I gave my copy to a charity shop. Then I bought the Numan Years box set and it came back to haunt me!!

I would love to hear a recording of the Warriors tour – but other than Berserker and the Wembley show CDs, I haven't heard much live early Numan. I guess Berserker isn't really early Numan though!

Personally I absolutely love his live albums "Dark Light", "Live At Shepherds Bush '97" and "White Noise".

I'm a HEEEEUUUUGE fan of jarre!

Oxygene Part 2 has to be my all-time favourite piece of music.

One of his most relaxing albums for me is 2003's "Geometry of Love". Very sensual and atmospheric.

He's done so many great albums..... but I'll shut up before I get carried away!

...it was Jarre's 58th birthday yrecently. 58!! And he still looks so young......

Re: What are you listening to now? - Fri, 01 Sep 2006 07:44:00

I have all of Jarre's albums I think, except Magnetic Fields, which I once had, but wasn't so keen on. I'm also missing some of the live albums. Out of all the live ones, I think the Concerts in China (early 80s) and Hong Kong ('94) are the best.

Images is a good compilation, though these days I prefer Aero. I really like some of the new arrangements.

Waiting for Cousteau is a great album - "Calypso" parts 2 & 3 are fantastic tracks, and the 45 minute long ambient piece is really superb.

One of my very favourites has to be Metamorphoses from 2000 - it's probably his most diverse album, but I think it has some of his most wonderful songs on such as "Hey Gagarin", "Je Me Souviens", "Rendez-Vous a Paris" and "Bells". It's a very different album to any of his others though.

Oxygene and Oxygene 7 - 13 are two of his very, very best. I love both those albums and they go together so well.

Geometry of Love is wonderful – but it wasn't on general release. You might find it imported in shops like HMV, but the best place to track it down is online - or in France! It was done as an exclusive album for a 'chill out' club in Paris.

It's a very relaxing and atmospheric album, and very sensual and passionate. A couple of tracks are a little sombre, but overall it's one of the best albums to relax to, that I've heard. It's a shame it wasn't a 'proper' release because it really is so good, at least by my standards!

You can't miss it in the shops - it has a yellow cover with a pixelated photo of his then girlfriend, Anne Parillaud's furry bits!!

...although I'll admit it took me about half an hour to work it out when I got the CD..... :rolleyes:

Re: What are you listening to now? - Fri, 01 Sep 2006 21:35:00

I have a great recording of his "Aero" concert from 2001 - it's really good. All the versions of the songs he performs sound excellent.

I got the 2 new DVDs recently, the Peking concert and the Gdansk concert - they were great shows, but I was a little disappointed because I could so easily tell a great deal of it wasn't actually live.

That's been a very touchy subject on the Jarre forums!!

Understandably though - a bit of a rip off, when you want to see the genius really playing in front of you in addition to the pyrotechnics.

I'd still give anything to go to a Jarre concert though!!

...Jarre's music has been probably the main influence when making my own music.

Posted by: Alex S

Re: What are you listening to now? - Fri, 01 Sep 2006 22:31:00

It's not available on DVD, but there were talks about all the old concerts being made available in the future.

I have a DVD version that a friend gave me – along with just about every other Jarre show... so much so that I haven't gotten round to watching any of them yet!!

I'll have a look at my DVD of La Defense and see how the quality is – I think it was transferred straight from VHS.

One show he sent me that I'm really looking forward to watching is the Concert for Tolerance from 1995 - the one under the Eiffel Tower.

I've been down the stree tin Croissy, just outside Paris, where he's lived for many years, and had a studio. He had a studio there. Though the last I heard he was moving and temporarily living in a flat in Paris.

Each time I got back to Paris (because of my partner's family) it puts me firmly in Jarre-mode – particularly because her Aunt, who we stay with, lives next to La Defense!

I walked 'across the plaza' between the towers recently thinking to myself 'Wow, Jarre was here!'

She actually went to the show but it was so crowded they just went back home and watched it on TV!

I don't blame her, it looked completely packed!

It's really a shame it's not available on dvd (i originally recorded it off the telly and that tape wore out!) and then I bought it and that tape wore out! I haven't even seen it in the shops again! But it would be great if they released them all on dvd!!!!!

I saw Jarre in Docklands in 1989. The size and scale of the projections were fantastic. Unfortunately the stage was about half a mile away down river and the sound was coming out of a poxy PA system that made it sound like a loud transistor radio. As an experience it was quite something - arriving late with 100s of others when the Revolutions Overture was already starting inside made the hairs on the back of your neck stand up...

Magnetic Fields was a sonic departure from the first two LPs but what did you think of the third movement of Magnetic Fields 1 (the one which begins with the sound of a jet flying by)? It's a bit of a forgotten Jarre classic in my opinion and I'd love to hear him do a live version of it. I'm sure it could also have been edited down to make a pretty good 7" single.

Kraftwerk's Antenna (from the Radio Activity album) is another good example of a track which had pretty good 'single' and 'live' potential.

Today I finished listening to Rage In Eden (1st time in ages - the drum sound is more weedy than I remember, no wonder Warren was never happy with it...). Then I went onto JF's The Garden. Systems of Romance is what synth based rock is all about - squawky lead synths, fast bass synth, dustbin snares...shouty vocals. Brill. laugh

Live From A Room is a fairly constant audio companion right now (thank you SisterRay for probably being the only shop in London to have a copies, so far...)

Also, (and someone else could well have pointed this out before), but admirers of Cathedral Oceans, esp CO3, should check out John Taveners 'Last Sleep of The Virgin' for string quartet and bells...in fact some sections of CO3 are strongly reminiscent of Tavener. (No bad thing).
Posted by: Alex S

Re: What are you listening to now? - Tue, 12 Sep 2006 21:17:00

I've been playing Live From A Room pretty much non-stop since John's gig in Sheffield back in July.

Actually I didn't take it on holiday with me last month, so I had to do without it for a couple of weeks, but it certainly is a great listen.

It's largely a great selection of songs, performed brilliantly. It's refreshing to hear the new versions of the older tracks from Metamatic. My favourite is Metal Beat.

Posted by: julianb

Re: What are you listening to now? - Tue, 12 Sep 2006 21:30:00

The reworkings of the Metamatic songs are a highlight of 'LFAR', tho I don't care so much for the new version of 'Touch and Go'. My Sex is a definate highlight, and curiously I rather like the version of Nightlife on this cd - It's actually one of my least favourite Foxx songs in its original form. This version made me hear with new ears (as t'were).

Glad it's available generally - only had enough cash on me to get 'The Hidden Man' at the Scala gig....!

The Hidden Man
Live from a Room
Tiny Colour Movies
The BBC interviews

Also, Singles 86 -98 by Depeche Mode
and Singles by New Order...

...and finally Tracks and Traces by Harmonia 76 (Eno, Moebius, Rodelius and Rother). At last I managed to get a copy of this one. Very much of the era. I prefer the other 2 Harmonia albums.

I wonder what Eno means when he sings "Don´t get lost on Luneburg Heath" Yes these are the only lyrics on the album!!?? bemused lmao

Thanks for responding Mehdi! LO 79 is the best of the early live-one's I think. Have to do some re-listening I think. I am also enjoying Gary's music in the last months more and more. Some of it has to grow, but if it gots you, then you're lost and you're a junkie. I am trying now to get the remaining albums I don't own so far via eBay and Amazon.
But today it's not NUMAN, it's DEPECHE MODE. Transferred their albums to my ARCHOS-Drive and listening now in chronologically order to:

- Speak and Spell
- A Broken Frame
- Construction Time Again
- Some Great Reward

Especially the last two on this list are really great albums. There is something in it I am missing since Exciter...

I didn't know Numan before, just by name. It's a friend who sent me this cd 1 or 2 years ago (or i probably would have totally missed his music).

No, I would never call you this. Talking about me, what happened to me. I enjoyed his music from the early years very much when I went to school, then he got out of my focus. Now I rediscovered him, glad about this.

Camouflage - One Fine Day
their 2nd album from 1989 contains also LOVE IS A SHIELD, one of their greatest hits. I am surprised about the quality of the 10-track-album in general, brilliant instrumentation, sounds really wonderful, also from technical point of view. Strange again how close they sound like Depeche Mode, but have absolutely nothing to do with them. Really a "re-discovery" from my archive. Have to search for their other albums within the next days I think...

Maybe it's due to maternal problems at the time? I listened to a re-issue of "Islands" recently, the sleeve notes credits Bonnie Tyler et al (how could you even think about collaborating with her Mike??? :rolleyes: ), but strangely there's no mention of Anita Hegerland who sang on half the album...

Today I'm listening to "Aero" by Jean Michel-Jarre. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />

Re: What are you listening to now? - Wed, 20 Sep 2006 17:02:00

You are right. I tried Jarre, but very soon I gave up with it wink . Listening to nearly all of Gary's albums in sequence, copying it to my ARCHOS (the better iPod!), travelling next week to Frankfurt, need some music there. Just can't get enough. BTW, I realized that I am missing my copy of AUTOMATIC somehow. Anybody here wants to sell his copy of the album from 1989?

In the moment, no NUMAN. Having a break while painting the backdoor of my garage, listening to remastered SYSTEMS OF ROMANCE . What a masterpiece...

UPDATE: This is the problem when english is not your mothers langusage and you need a little bit longer for building a comment. My Jarre-comment was not against you Alex, pointing with this to the Jarre-hype some pages back.
Alex, I am listening to Discovery soon. Looking forward to listening to your new album!

Depressed this morning. Best help in this case is a good CD. My choice is THE SMITHS - SINGLES. Don't know why, but it matches perfectly somehow.
This strategy worked already at school, when we had some problems with teachers and the "whole world" was against us or whatever, LOL.
It is simply wonderful to sit this morning outside in the garden, the sun comes up slowly, with a warm cup of coffee and listening to this compilation. Life can be so wonderful. Sometimes there is a need to step back or to wait a while, for "catching and feeling" these special moments.

Best Alphaville album imho is Prostitute. You should also seek out First Harvest, which is a remixed Greatest Hits kinda compilation.

Actually you should then seek out the rest as well:

Afternoons in Utopia (2nd album)
The Breathtaking Blue (3rd album with Klaus Schulze, slightly jazzy)
Salvation

Salvation is the last Alphaville album to have Bernhard Lloyd's involvement so Alphaville is currently only Marian Gold and a band.

well ... i'm somehow concerned about what has happened with this thread & why it was somehow cut-off after cerise's last posting on the 31st of jan. 2007 ( ! ) ... & then the next reply was by newvox yesterday ! :-o

was this "only" a ( temporary ? ) technical glitsch ( of what strange kind soever ) ... or a more general problem with the forum software , because this thread had already more than 2000 ( ! ) replies & about 78 ( ? ) sites , which may have been a bit too much for the software to handle further replies properly , so it jus' cut-off more than half a year of replies all of a sudden ! :-o

any info about this , mon cerise ?

however ... i think that we should start a new thread with the same topic now & cerise should close this one , if the missing posts can't be retrieved from a back-up of the forum !

jus' my 2 cents worth of the euro after all ...

Hmm, that's odd. Has it happened anywhere else?

If the host server goes down, sometimes they have to reinstall sites from backup - BUT the backup should be done every day, so you only lose a minimal amount. But 7 months' worth is a bit strange. I'll call Easynet and see if I can find out anything.

Pressure Points by Anne Clark and ??? cool
This album from 1985 is very atmospheric and the influence of the master himself is really listenable. If you have no idea what I am talking about, have a look for it and take a listen!

Back to Numan today, Sharpe And Numan - 'Automatic'. The best album IMO since 'telekon'. Sticking my neck out here, but i dont think he'll ever make one as good as the early ones or automatic again. A lot of credit goes to Bill Sharpe obviously.

So far, Kate Bush - 'The Dreaming' (in some ways i think this was the start of a wrong direction. It was the first of the folk music influences, which would have been fine if it had not been used so much on future albums too. It was also the start of throwing everything in the studio, even the kitchen sink. For me the first three 'moderate rock' albums will always be the classic ones.)

Best of Hawkwind - because of their long hair folk often lump them in with heavy rock / metal. But they also pioneered the use of electronics in relatively mainstream music in 1969 / 70. Some keen interpreters referred to them as the "English kraut rock act". lol :p

I believe 'Year Zero' is to be picked up by one of the TV networks in the US & made into some mini series or other.

The idea being set in the near future with the US being run by some holy dictatership!

Should make for some really dark depressing TV!

Ken,

that's so weird, because when I got home on Friday afternoon, I felt like listening to EIGHTIES music. Preferably (hear, hear) Simple Minds or Human League.

Now, as it happens, I don't have any of their music in digital format. ALL I HAD WAS SPANDAU BALLET and DURAN DURAN (amongst others). biglaugh

So I ended up playing all sorts of self-made compilations of the rather non-conformist type. wink

Now, DJ FEELIP is on in the living-room. Earlier on, I noticed that one of his tracks sounded like FoxxVox, totally. Now here's a surprise. :rolleyes:

Re: What are you listening to now? - Sun, 26 Aug 2007 21:24:00

Hi Isabel,

I never listened to complete albums from most '80s groups due to Numan, Foxx, and Ultravox. I spent so much time collecting and playing everything they released, that all i knew of 'spandau' etc was from tv and radio. bemused

So by the mid '90s when everyone was on cd, i decided to get ONE 'hits' or 'best of' from each group i neglected. Still cost me a flaming fortune!! wink

These have FINALLY turned up on the Canadian iTunes Music Store, and in the iTunes Plus section at that.

Been checking on and off for ages, haven't heard them in ages; my vinyl copies are worn out and I haven't been able to find them around here on CD. So as soon as I saw them on the Store listings this evening, I purchased both.

It's so good to listen to these albums again, after so long...

Its been going that way for months and IMO its to do with John releasing so many (and top quality) albums last year, and now the little matter of 'Metamatic' 2007.

So we know Ultravox will (probably) never reform, but Midge and Billy's solo careers are the only thing that can help bring back the crowd maybe.

There is still Monument though, and Cerise has said things will be added to this site and forum after the EMI projects are finished.

Playing at the moment Paul Hartnoll, 'The Ideal Condition,' and Long Range (Phil Hartnoll) 'Madness and Me.'
I'd just like to say that the Orbital chaps have both come up trumps. Instrumentals and songs sit side by side very well on both albums. It makes me wonder how popular Orbital would have been if they'd wrote more song based tunes.

all in all "synthesizer" is a good album , but the song i like the most is the last one on it called "the seeds of pain" with their original singer & frontman kurt harland ! :-)
their new singer is also good & his vocals fit quite well to the music , but ... i can only listen to a few songs in a row & then have to take a break & listen to something else instead !

anyway ... jus' listen to it for yourself , if u have the chance ! ;-)

Re: What are you listening to now? - Sun, 23 Sep 2007 02:50:00

Everyone should see, hear and experience a Chemical Brothers gig at least once in their life. I knew it was going to be hot when the taxi cab driver asked what the buzz was at the ballroom.
It was unbelievably fantastic. Hammerstein Ballroom, NYC: high ceilings, balconies, floor jam packed (I stood in front of the mixing board...I was NOT going up front). Lasers, projections, lights .........crowd dancing and jumping up and down, glow sticks, hands waving, floor bouncing.

The set included We Are The Night, No Path To Follow, Saturate, Galvanize, Block Rocking Beats, Hey Boy Hey Girl, Burst Generator, and lots more. Ed and Tom did about a 2 hour set, only stopping twice for a minute or so(so the crowd could catch their breath).

Opening was The Rub, a DJ party crew that pumped the crowd. They did about an hour.

One of the most unforgettable gigs I have ever attended.
excited excited excited

Re: What are you listening to now? - Sun, 23 Sep 2007 03:44:00

I was pleased to hear you both had a great time maryann, especially as it was your first 'Chemical Brothers' gig. Im sure there will be a few more even if not in a row.
So 'saturate' was played and as a bonus no-one had to do 'the salmon dance'.
I hear 'The Rub' DJ tracks were amazing too for a support set.
Posted by: maryann

Re: What are you listening to now? - Sun, 23 Sep 2007 06:20:00

I checked The Rub out and they have had parties in England, Germany and France as well as other countries. They have worked with alot of big names also.

The "message" being those one loves dearly are much more important than money, possessions and ambition.

MELTING POT would be a better name for that album, FOXX's listenable influence in style and instrumentation is matching in a perfect way Anne's musicstyle somehow.

Your question contains the right answers.

In all fairness, there are some good tracks but it pales in comparison to the first two albums.

Also, when I hear the lyrics of Fish Out Of Water it drives it all home how things were between the two of them at the time. And that is sad frown

And of course, no Curt. frown

Been in Bowie Mode this weekend.

I remember the first Bowie cd releases which featured extra tracks roughly from each album, and now these '99 remasters without extra tracks. Seems obvious I know, but as its been eight years, I wonder if theres any info about remasters WITH extra tracks.

Anyway, today has been 'Hunky Dory', so far.

Yes, i think that one was released a short time after 'Elemental' and still before Curt was back.

Been playing some samples of 'Gretchen' tonight and it sounds promising.

Well, too early to give you my finally meaning. But it grows. This does not mean that it is bad. NOOB is very different. It sounds somehow very strong like DM. What I am really missing so far is a "flow", not only within the whole album, often a song is changing the tempi, is often hardly interrupted. If you want, I'll send some tracks to you Si. The album NOOB is from august, I think there's another one released after that called Da*Mals .

Re: What are you listening to now? - Fri, 23 Nov 2007 17:06:00

This morning I watched TV during breakfast and the morningshow pointed me to a band. My curiosity forced me to go immediately to their web page . Well honestly, PORNOPHONIQUE sounds a little bit dirty/strange, but simply ignore it pls. Their complete album 8-Bit-Lagerfeuer (8-Bit-Campfire) is available here , there is the downloadable ZIP-File with the complete album I recommend for download today.
What can you expect? Well, 8-bit stands for the heavy usage of old homecomputer-noise (C64, ATARI) in their songs. When I listened to the album, often it was like "timetunnel" back to the early 80s for me. But listen yourself. It's a strange mix of Kraftwerk, DM mixed up with heavy guitars, arrghh hard to describe. Pls. try it.

I can kind of understand that. Yesterday I thought it was their worst ever, this evening its already better than 'Crash'.

Im even beginning to like those musical interludes that sounded like pointless interruptions yesterday. Now they add a refreshing flow to the album.

News from Berlin. I know some of you know about the band I am talking now, DIE ÄRZTE from Berlin. I bought the new album yesterday, it's titled Jazz ist anders (Jazz is different). The 1st single called Junge (Boy) can you find here , it's the censored version.
Think it's hard to understand what it is all about for you. It's in general about the young people of today, without perspective, without job, just hanging around. The lyrics itself are in a way like a mother or a father would talk to their son, talking to his conscience (?right word?). The video itself is a drastic zombie-plot, it reflects the lost future. On TV you'll probably see only the censored version, which is made in a funny way because of the censor-text, hiding the picture. The uncensored version is something different, not everybody's taste... This album is a must for fans, like it very much already after 1st listening...

The single 'Precious' was instant for me, and 'John The Revelator' within two plays. Its better than 'A Broken Frame' but its not one of their classics.

Precious is one of the best songs Martin has ever written. John The Revelator is good also but it doesn't have the depth of Precious.

I rank this album in the low middle of their body of work.

I don't disagree with your first statement, but ABF is a superb album. My favourite overall actually. Still, I don't class myself as a DM despite despite having tons of their stuff, so maybe that's it...

Okay whilst having a run (3 to 4 mile) Some Killing Joke, then whilst driving to cinema to see 'Fred Claus,' The The Infected & Soul Mining, Then after the footy on Sky round to our kids and there I end up listening to and dancing to some Foo Fighters covers versions but in a Bluesgrass style, brilliant.
Whenever I hear Bluesgrass music I have to dance, it is just so infectious.

Been trying to give Billy's Ultravox a bit more of a chance tonight. Maybe 'middle of the road' is not the right term, but thats how all the tracks sound to me. I think thats partly down to the song writing but also Tony and Sam's singing style. No-one could ever follow on from the first two Ultravox era's, so in that context Billy, Tony, and Sam did pretty well.

I love PIL!

This evening I noticed that they finally have Ultravox's Quartet available on the Canadian iTunes Music Store - in the iTunes Plus section no less. I bought it right away. This version has bonus tracks (Hosanna, Monument, Break Your Back, Overlook).

I've not listened to this album since I put my Pioneer turntable away more than a decade ago. I've got my new purchase playing right now and wow, what aural nostalgia - my memories of it had become foggy and hearing it again is such a pleasure. Sure, it's not the grand opera (of sorts) that is Rage In Eden, but it's a lot more solid than I remember. Even the tracks I'd convinced myself I didn't like (Serenade, When The Scream Subsides, The Song... ) make for great listening...

Alas, my first turntable was a Pioneer. I remember when the belt went (the first of many times), I was playing Depeche Mode and People Are People was playing and it would speed up/slow down. To this day, when I hear that song playing I can hear how it sounded as it played on the turntable. I have a working Onkyo turntable that I keep preserved.

PIL are musically much much better than the Sex Pistols (who never were about music at all anyhow).
