What are you listening to?



Yes, they started in church but don’t hold that against them - this is a great little song and video from a few years back (but new to me). Gang of Youths with Magnolia.

There may be some NE Ohio influence in that assuming that all incarnations of the band are inducted.


I think it’s more likely some influence from Northampton:



There’s a Northampton in NE Ohio too. Though it has now been incorporated into Cuyahoga Falls and it looks like that Alan Moore is actually from Birmingham. :wink:

I was talking about this guy who’s from Akron. The Rock Hall is just up the road in Cleveland. So a lot of people in the area have skin in the game. :wink:




I kinda love her,.




Some Beastie Boys.



The new U2 album is… not so good.

But its release reminded me of the previous one which was quite good although the quality of the music was overshadowed by the distribution method.

When the album was released on CD a month later it came with a second disc of acoustic renditions and other bits and pieces.

California was one of the best tracks on Songs of Innocence, and this acoustic version is maybe even better:


Nuff said…


it’s kinda strange that I’m only getting into Devin Townsend now, but it’s something I’ve been putting off for years… anyways… this shit just hooked me up bad… it’s like crack for my eyes & ears…

When I’ve heard him singing live lately, McCartney’s voice has sounded harsh and off-key. How do you think he sounded, @Andrew ?



He sounded fine all told for a 75 year old dude.

He wasn’t off-key but a tiny bit scratchy for the quieter, lower bits. He could scream well during, say, Helter Skelter, Hey Jude, and Maybe I’m amazed.
