My fairly ecelectic most listened to artists, in alphabetical order and according to my computer playlists, for the last 3 months have been:
Fields of the Nephilim
Kings of Leon
Linton Kwesi Johnson
Sisters of Mercy
The Velvet Underground
At last. Dryden Mitchell of Alien Ant Farm - top bloke:
Not a bad performance, although he accelerating to the end. He must catch a train?
When I hear this toccata( = touching the keyboard), the following alway comes into mind. Bach had more then 20 children (from 2 wifes). So one morning he walks angry to his church, where he is organist. Saying, she had a headache again! Sits before his his organ and starts to play, ramming his keyboards. A new toccata was born.
I have been big into the progressive rock band Dream Theater as of late. They combine some serious talent with cutting edge rock, even metal some would say. The talent these guys have is second to none in my opinion, but you need an ear for music and a liking for hard progressive rock to appreciate this band.
re Dream Theater. Was Ok, the bit I listened to. Reminded me very much of Pink Floyd and early Genesis.
Yes Diafol, Pink Floyd for sure, Dream Theater was/are very influenced by Pink Floyd. I haven't heard them mention Genesis but then again, I haven't heard all of their interviews either. There are other bands that I hear when I listen to them, at points in different songs I hear Led Zepplin and Tool. They like to incorporate orchestras into their music too.
Gonna see them in Sin City on the 29th. Can't wait.
Me and missus at Rival Sons and The Graveltones on Monday night (Sin City). Awwwww. That's what I call energy. Graveltones - how can two guys make so much noize? Ears are still ringing 2 days on. But if it's too loud, you're too old :)
