    Songs of infidelity

    I don't think the song is autobiographical regarding the immediate circumstances it was written in - more of a meditation on a relationship (he and Debbie were separated by this stage).

    1991

    '1991 The Year Punk's Heart Broke' ... really though, that dream of the underground breaking through turned out fairly miserable. Music seemed much happier in the back of a transit van eating noodles.

    1991

    I was 19 and living on next to nothing in Galway, subsisting on bargain-bin tapes which included best of albums from The Archies and Tommy Steele, the only contemporary release I can remember stumping up for was 'Loveless'.

    I have had dreams that are very similar to this

    The Jimmy Cake - Tough Love

    The Yule Log I only know this paradox as 'Lincoln's Axe' .. nice to have a more classical reference.

    The Swedish Progg Thread

    None of my favourites covered yet here ... anything connected with Bo Anders Persson is usually essential International Harvester / Harvester / Trad Gras Och Stenar / Parson Sound. Also Algarnas Tradgard are in that headlifting progressive folk bracket.

    The Jimmy Cake - Tough Love

    There was a regular set-piece that got dropped because people were so unhappy about the flagrant Dreyblatt-ism of it. Full recording is still MIA ... sad state of affairs for a compulsive archivist. The conga-line section was supposed to be a nod to Afrika 70 and to the Sun-Ra Arkestra ...

    For Giggles- a partial list in haphazard, reverse chronological order and limited to non-secret acts that released music or performed in public: Liquid Baby Terminator Amoon Brian Conniffe / Suzanne Walsh / Me Raising Holy Sparks Zorilla Deviated Septum United Bible Studies Tychonaut / The...

    The Tycho Brahe - This Is Tycho Brahe (2002)

    That was a pretty exciting time for me ... nice to see the record still has good associations for some.

    Screening of Salad Days Documentary: July 24th

    They formed in '86 and were certainly a part of that 'revolution summer' thing. I'd have thought their first album had come out sooner than '89 but there you go. It's a personal gripe anyhow - I'd say a few people could make the same complaint on behalf of quite a few other bands

    Screening of Salad Days Documentary: July 24th

    That was enjoyable but the amount of screen time devoted to Ian MacKaye / Minor Threat etc was exactly what people were complaining about at the time - they were sucking up everyone else's oxygen, (by proxy, to be fair). One quote from Craig Wedren and 5 seconds of STT music ... sigh...

    Music in Spar nowadays is shit...discuss

    Is it possible to legally bypass IMRO for broadcasting music in public? I always thought the license was collected regardless and only paid out if it was declared by the broadcaster or claimed by the owner.

    The Walking Dead Season 5

    OK - you certainly get a 'winging it' feel from the production sometimes .. I'm curious about the bleakness :-)

    The Walking Dead Season 5

    How closely does the series stick to the comic? It always cracks me up when they seem to decide 20 mins before a character is killed that they need to juice up the audience's emotional investment in them - it's like the character puts on the proverbial 'red shirt' in Star Trek. Hershel was never...

    What you been listening to this week?

    Metallica: Stanger musical moments that are actually convincing on this album are like oases in the desert - more refreshing than tap water in the city. Celtic Frost: Morbid Tales always stunning - I also think Stephen Priestly established quite a unique and wonderful drum style on this record...

    Comprehensive list of the most played songs on Irish radio in 2014

    For sure, but every inbreaking of real imagination and creativity into the charts is another alibi for the industry; it's bittersweet, without parameters there's nothing to strain against - it does appear that all the horses in the industry stables are slowly suffocating in their own mess...
