    Actually, I thought I would get more Portishead and Mazzy first, then go with Sneaker Pimps and other downtempo artists.

    Just a wonderfully crafted song

    I just got home from a concert today, mostly Reggae bands. To say it was 420 friendly is an understatement. Wow. The lineup was, in order of appearance:
    RDGLDGRN
    The Green
    Soja
    Dirty Heads

    I'd never listened to any of this stuff prior to today. I'd say my favorite act was Soja. The best single song played during the show was by RDGLDGRN, they did a completely unexpected and fun rendition of The Lion Sleeps Tonight.

    Happened upon this video of Mark Knopfler, Sting, Phil Collins, and Eric Clapton performing Money For Nothing.

    Brendon Small, the guy behind Dethklok/Metalocalypse, has new music coming out in August.

    If it's as good as his work for "Dethklok," this should be great.

    MPR in MN (89.3, The Current) is doing an A-Z weekend, by song title. It's been pretty awesome. They have upped their game in the past couple of years. Lots of indie, sure, but they have mixed in popular musicians' tracks, oldies, jazz, blues, etc. It's all around now, instead of snooty music that the general masses have never heard of.

    Probably not able to argue that it's their best, but it's definitely my favorite.
    I once saw UB40 play a show with The Smithereens in a tent at Hyland Park in Bloomington during the summer of '90 as a tie-in to a wine party or something weird. Getting high and drinking straight from a bottle of chardonnay (I know wrong color) to Red Red Wine was surreal on so many levels. Adding to the experience I tore my ankle a new one that night and watched the show with my foot in a bucket of ice.

    Alice In Chains - Dirt

    At once better AND more depressing than I remember. Angry Chair and Rain When I Die are fantastic.

    First two albums.

    They hold up.
    They do! Cargo and Business As Usual. Overkill is one my favorite songs along with It's A Mistake.

    Listening to 12/13/81, so not too long after Boy and that U2 that you loved. I loved them back then too although I didn't become a fan till WAR.

    Very energetic Bono and band as they build their fan base one conversion at a time.

    Speaking of conversion... they're basically a Christian rock band at this point, touring in support of October.

    Funny they were thinking about kicking Adam out as he wasn't a true believer.

    Sonically, I prefer the newer U2 - Achtung and later (especially Pop - my favorite). I find the soundscapes to be deeper and more interesting and the lyrics tend to align more with my current life experiences than the older stuff can anymore.

    Still... great show and I enjoy tapping into their youth every once in a while and I often catch a glimpse of my own when I do.

    Thing is that with perspective comes the realization that idealism to that degree is for the young. They couldn't still be that band and I couldn't still be the fan that I once was. We all grew up.


    You'll (maybe) be perversely happy to hear that both my son and I found this summer's show that we went to pretty meh. They played well and energetic and the first several songs kicked complete arse.

    But then they got into playing the J-Tree in order and it got stale for us. Great album, but the show pacing was bad and they needed to break up the album so that energy could stay high.

    They never played any albums in order including Boy or War or whatever. There's a reason for that - show pacing and album pacing are very different things.

    Oh well. The tour from 2015 was stellar. Win some, lose some.


    Final note - apparently The Welsh U2 is finishing their tour in Madison in a couple of months at a small theater. Liked them back in the day and owned all their albums, but they were never a big fave. Don't think I'll go, but we'll see.

    Early Blotto. I'd love to have heard them in Albany in 1980.

    Recording quality is sh-te, but they were great.

    Edit: nope, they're not early Blotto at all.

    They're Blotto, a Japanese melodic punk band, and this is actually later than Blotto, the punk/parody Albany band.

    I like these guys better. A lot better. Thank you Matsuhashi, Murakami, Ogiwara, and Yusuke Okada.
