The Great Video Volleyball Game

Post by Shiney on Wed Oct 21, 2009 8:33 pm





MODEST MOUSE- "Third Planet"




Here goes....rules are simple.

Post a youtube video of a band...any style...whatever you dig....The next person to post their video..needs to post their thoughts on the previous video...

I start this game with the above post...and yes, I realize this will wither and die of neglect like most of these other threads I start....(reminds me to go post in my Surreal Cinema thread)

Ahh the Mouse, the soundtrack to my sisters car! Shades of Black Francis in this one, the most immediate of any of their songs that i've heard. "The universe is shaped exactly like the earth if you go straight long enough you'll end up where you were." is an incredible lyric that makes my head hurt!

And RP serves up a dish of vintage mid-80's "College Rock" (what we called good alternative music back then...before all those backwards hat wearin', date raping fratboys ruined the term with the unabashed man love of crap like DMB and Nickelback.)

Anyway...TRIFFIDS always sounded to me like NICK CAVE trying to be a tad more commercially viable. And coming goddamn close to it....Great stuff...

Like if a troupe of Romanian gypsies hitched their wagons right in the middle of Denver and it's nascent "Spooky Americana" scene.

Brings a much needed bit of cabaret flair to the fire and brimstone of their fellow banjo pickers!

I heard the Aussie X before when I was delving into the L.A. X....and must admit...I found a few songs by them and fell in love...and then when I discovered it was not the same X, I was saddened....I like your X better....Kinda punkier....

X bass player/leader Ian Rilen formed Rose Tattoo with slide guitarist Pete Wells, they formed the whole concept and image of Rose Tattoo. Rilen wrote their biggest hit "Bad Boy For Love" but soon left the Rosey Tatts because Angry wouldn't sing his more nihilistic/punk songs like Hate City, in his words Rose Tattoo went soft so he formed X.

I reckon their debut Aspirations (1979) is the greatest record of sleazy inner city living, so street and on the fringe. Punk Rock but in the way the Stones are punk with not much in common with the other late 70's class, think an art damaged AC/DC! Rilen's bass has the most powerful and grooviest sound i've heard, he used to string his bass with piano wire!

Here's another video, Degenerate Boy.........

Sorry for blabbing i'll get round to your video.

I take what Shiney posted was two songs. The first is a clatter of freewheeling blues skronk, like if the Magic Band played Albert Ayler! The second is a great little ZZ Top like swamp boogie, top shelf bottleneck blooze! On further inspection Matt Groening was somehow behind this! As Moe Szyslak would say............."Wah"!

Nice tune, RP...Reminded me a little of Gabriel era GENESIS...a little. I know I should be familiar with that cat and the name rings a bell, but fucked if I know why...

You can pick that accent up a mile away, so Scottish Indie with an amusing long name and predilection for heavy post-punk rhythms. They remind me of the Cribs which falls just the right side of good post-punk informed indie........the other side being populated by the likes of Bloc Party (shudders)! Really dig the bass in this one, the chorus is quite rousing too.
