What Are You Listening To?

Post by Charlie FiftyWatts on Tue Mar 25, 2014 3:49 pm



What music are you listening to now?
Post a you tube, and share it with us!





CAUTION: A long scroll of youtubes can take a minute for
your browser to fully open, but be patient, it's worth it!

Chrissie Hynde...was proposed to by Sid Vicious. She was originally part of the punk scene, before going mainstream in the 80's. You can see a bit of where she came from here. I liked her singing. The vibrato thing was great,
and as women musicians go, she didn't just sing 'feminine', she sang. She's also Tom Petty's cousin.
See the resemblance?  K, enough. This ain't Behind The Scenes. ..One! Two! One two three four!

There's more to the story of this recording than I know of. Others can fill you in. But what matters for me is a stupidly drunk Jim Morrison singing (I imagine laying on the floor) into a recording mic instead of a singing mic. Hendrix isn't wasted, and deals with it, but later wrote the song Astro Man about Morrison, because of the incident. (okay that's just a theory..but it works).

__________________________________________
HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED
WHEN JIMI HENDRIX AND JIM MORRISON JAMMED:


__________________________________________


I can't find a you tube of Astro Man to post (and that's a shame, it's funny
to hear it and think of it as being about Morrison). Well here's the lyrics anyway:


JIMI HENDRIX LYRICS
"Astro Man"


Here I come to save the day

A little boy inside a dream just the other day
His mind fell out of his face and the wind blew it away
A hand came out from heaven and pinned a badge on his chest
It said 'get out there, man, and do your best'

They call him astro man
And he's flyin' higher than
That faggot superman ever could

Oh, they call him cosmic nut
And he's twice as dense as donald duck
And he'll try his best to screw you up
The rest of your mind
Oh, look out! my guitars

Astro man, flyin' across the sky two times higher
Than that old faggot superman ever, ever could
Ever could

There he goes, there he goes
Where he stops, no one knows
There he goes, there he goes
He's tryin' to, tryin' to blow out the rest of your mind
He's gonna blow out the rest of your mind
Talkin' about lookin' for peace of mind
Astro man will leave it in pieces
Have you put our trouble behind him
Make you fly around in pieces
Yeah, blow out the rest of your mind
Astro man will blow out the rest of your mind
He's gonna blow out the rest of your mind

"MY mummy bought ME a GOOD guitah"
*smack smack smack (eating fried eggs)*

BAM! *Charlie comes out of nowhere and smacks Waters in
the head and starts making honking noises at him (don't ask).


Folks, I think the success of this music is testament to two things.
That the hippie generation was stoned in the 70's, and hitting 30 already by the 80's.
Whatever. Love 'em or hate 'em. Juice, toast, sausages (I like sausages)(no, it's marmalade) (GET ON WITH IT!!!) Shocked 





(you'll have to search around for the rest of the movie (which included that bit of interview I mentioned).
It WAS all here, but Google removed it. Thank you Google. You're certainly a helpful bunch of fucking snots.

Mark Farner's Messenger Guitar

My theory is he stuffed the f - holes and taped them over because he bought a beatles era guitar when he really needed to go beyond that cleaner pop sound and get dirty and distorted without feedback issues from using the wrong guitar for that.

Charlie's listenin' to this.
Charlie's always listenin' to this.

Farner has a new guitar by this point,
as you can see. He got this one because
- like the messenger before it - it has an
aluminum neck. Yep, an aluminum neck.
No, Charlie doesn't know what's good
about that.  ..What? No, Charlie didn't
always talk in third person to himself.
This only started when he built a forum
and no one came.  Sad   Ya! YA! Sure!!
*Charlie goes off and gets a hooker*

This is ZZ Top from 1982, you'd think it'd rule. But I'm disappointed.
A copy of Double Down Live  -which has a 1980 Rockpalast, Germany show
would be SO MUCH BETTER. But no one has that one posted.
(So click to  buy it at Amazon. You'll be glad !)


Meantime, here's the lesser 80's-sized Top:

I don't know if a film of the Fandango concert even exists (I have looked and found no sign of it). But I did 'see' that concert anyway, a couple hundred times in my my mind, while listening to the 8-track in my Ford Torino, in 1976.
..My first car was beat, but it did come with an 8-track player and two tapes (Fandango, and BTO Not Fragile). Far out.


"Well I may not have no top to blow!"

"Then you better blow what you got baby."



As for the 1980 ZZ Top concert being so much better than one from 1982, well,
by '82 the 80's sound was starting to have its destructive effect.

According to Wikipedia: Half of Fandango's tracks  were selections from live shows, the rest were new songs from the studio.  
So there really was no concert to see a film of. But I can believe Bullwinkle managed to see one anyway.

I get it, Pete. You're down because all we've got is the past now. Here here. Fuck anyone younger than us. Fuck the corporate criminals and their republicunt organization. FUCK stupid parroting kids, Generation X and asshole millenials. Fuck everything, because it's all SHIT NOW. I know. Life used to be wondrous and free and improving and ours. Now it's just garbage. All we have is the past, soon to be lost entirely when another 15 years of all boomers dying is done. Dust to dust. Shit down the shit-hole.

First life is about what is, and what could be.

Then it's what is, but wish it wasn't.

Then what could have been.

Then what was. Just what was.

And then all gets quiet, except for assholes spewing.

And they cover you, and weeds grow in it. And that's your legacy.


Think you matter?  It's an illusion you wish was real.

One day you'll let go, and you'll know:

First there's what is, and what could be.

Then there's just what is and shouldn't be.

Then it's all what could have been.

And finally, only what was

and assholes shitting on it, to cover you over.

Oh yea, yea. Roger Waters (in that film's lunch scene), when asked
why he thinks it is he plays so well, he replies with boastful disdain:

"(unlike poor people, who buy cheap guitars simply because they're stupid
[Waters thinks people who can't afford to eat or dress okay could just as easily
buy a million dollar synthesizer and a soundproof practice hall like Floyd got to do.])
"MY muvah bout ME a GOOD guitah!"  *smack smack, schmuck flup* (eating fried eggs
with his mouth open) (his 'muvah' must have taught him that too.)
