In "classical" music my favorite composers tend to be more recent: Stravinsky, Ives, Tcherepnin (ok, he was one of our closest friends), Bartok, Martirano, Shostakovich, and Prokofiev. But I like older guys too. My wife and I go to Chicago Symphony probably 6 or so times a year. Our friend Ivan Tcherepnin really loved The Swans.
someone mentioned Swans....

That's just awesome. My wife, calling from the living room as I played it, "What's that? It's amazing." (Thanks for reminding me, yes, Swans, like Cream - not The Creams, not The Swans.)
Actually, this is really good.
Kinds of remind me of "Sister of mercy" at their best period.
Just add it to my new playlist. thanks

My favourite band at the moment are French.

That is funny!
I got presented to this band by my 18 years old niece...
She said it was "Hard Core" before playing it...
I was gobbed smacked as i had a different definition of "Hard Core"...an old fashion one.
Then i understood...

:lol:
10s of 1000s of metalheads just cried out at your niece's misclassification.

Schubert confessed to...supervising the execution of about 800 Jews...(referring to the order to clean up Simferopol)...Schubert managed to kill all the Jews (by Christmas 1941). Nosske was the one the other defendants called the biggest bloodhound....

I can't help myself on this: I saw them in '78 in north Jersey.

My favorite band at the time was this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OULLiXkwVck. I saw one of their last shows in the US, also in '78, in June, at My Father's Place on Long Island (this show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6N4YBBAmDY)

Hard core? I know the score.

One generation's hard core is another generation's something else.

D Stomp

Ban me, try it.
You might cause a riot
What the radio won't (play)
the Underground will supply it.

Suburban base records 1993.

Some nice breaks with ICE T, growling away there and slow piano breaks.

Those songs were hard for them, they had to learn a new chord.

These guys, The Adverts, OTOH wished for simpler times:

:lol:
Since the Fall fell on you... ;)

Actually, i discovered Peter Gabriel through Genesis, not like many through "Sledgehammer", being a big fan of prog rock, which is not for everybody, just like metals or punk music, so i don't judge other people tastes (although i like to tease :mrgreen: ).

I don't like all Peter Gabriel's songs from his solo years, but Genesis with him was the most impressive gathering of talent ever seen: Banks, Rutherford, Gabriel were just teens when they came out with astonishing music as young as 18. Gabriel has just a gift when it comes to singing - whether one likes what he sings or not.
Here an extract of their very first album, they were signed when they all turned 18.
By this concert, the most older member of the band was 23. Steve Hacket being probably one of the greatest guitarist in the world of R&R. And any drummer would recognize Phil Collins as one of the most incredible drummer.
Here is a full concert in HD - there a two versions, the first to too remastered in my taste:, so here is the second:


Unfortunately this great adventure will end in 1975 after the "Lamb lies down on Broadway", and Genesis without Gabriel turned into a common commercial (although successful) pop/rock band, Gabriel kept experiment new things, hence my admiration.

These three US bands that had regular spots at CBGBs were hits with punk rockers in the UK in the original punk rock movement. I don't think they were hits only because of their talent as much as because they were really funny. :D

The Ramones were just dumb and really funny. Deborah Harry from Blondie used to show her underpants and the Talking heads had many song about being insane. David Byrne from Talking Heads used to dance and sing imitating a chicken.

Warning Sign / Talking Heads / 1980
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ORUW0Pc-pw

(The second guitarist in the clip is Adrian Belew, who made weird "bird noises" with his guitar and went on the make all those weird sounds on numerous Bowie's albums. I still can't work out his "rig" to make these noises.) :D

The Ramones look like four dudes picked out of the local pool hall, given instruments and told to go up on stage and perform.

Maybe that's why I like them so much....

To someone like me, growing up in the MTV generation and forced to watch and listen to overbloated bands like Bon Jovi, bands like the Ramones were a breath of fresh air. The same for the other bands I mentioned above. I liked the classic rock of my brother's generation but I wanted something of my own. I had some interest in New Wave bands but I preferred harder edged rock so I turned to Thrash Metal bands initially. Bands like Megadeth, Metallica and Slayer filled a void but punk provided a good counterbalance. Because we are about 10 years behind here in the sticks I only got exposed to punk after many of it's original pioneers imploded and split up or died.

I don't get a black screen clicking on links I've posted. Hmmm. Maybe where you live? Actually, I have no idea. That one was "There Stands the Glass," off Van Morrison's "Pay the Devil" CD. I'm in a Van Morrison mood today. It happens fairly frequently.

It may be that you are in another country. Sony and other labels may restrict which territory music clips can be seen in, if they have licensed the video clip to third parties in other territories. :D

I didn’t like The Rolling Stones when I was younger until my cousin asked me if I’d actually ever really listened to The Rolling Stones. She went over, grabbed “Sticky Fingers” and played me this song:



Been a fan ever since.

The guitar opening for “Can’t You Hear Me knocking” is just nasty. To me that song encapsulates everything The Rolling Stones are, a gritty, bluesy, balls to the wall rock band.

As it turns out, Yiddish metal is a thing.
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

I like Prine, but on this one i think that using Dylan's chords from Desolation Row helps a lot. ;)

Speaking of Dylan, this is probably one of his best song, just immortal...

“I noticed this morning that a group of our Landsberg friends have been given their freedom this morning. These include...Schubert, Jost and Nosske. Schubert confessed to...supervising the execution of about 800 Jews...(referring to the order to clean up Simferopol)...Schubert managed to kill all the Jews (by Christmas 1941). Nosske was the one the other defendants called the biggest bloodhound....
Noel, Noel, what the hell.”
Benjamin Ferencz in a letter to Telford Taylor, December 1951

"There is nothing funny about Halloween. This sarcastic festival reflects, rather, an infernal demand for revenge by children on the adult world. The threat from this evil force hangs over adults here, equal in intensity only to their devotion to children. There is nothing more unhealthy than this childish sorcery, behind all the dressing up and the presents — people turn out their lights and hide for fear of harassment." - JB, America 1986

LOL

All I know is that I’ll have to drive my youngest son and my niece around while they go up to complete strangers and ask them for candy.

It’s the only time of the year where it’s permitted for a child to take candy from complete strangers.
