Growing up in the late 70s and the 80s i watched the transformation into new wave music i didn't like all of it but some i liked and the endz were one of them. (They were pretty talented) i still bust out there cd every once in awhile.

They were extremely inventive and the quirkiness was authentic....you really couldn't say that about a lot of new wave acts at that time who saw quirkiness as a necessary part of trying to cash in on the trend. Most abandonded the pose as time went on and trends shifted. In the groups aftermath, Crowded House scored big on the pop charts initially, but it just wasn't near as interesting without that quirk element that the Enz had.

It was a great post. The Enz hadn't graced my players in quite awhile, so of course they went right on in, the material has held up extrememly well over the years.

I love it when i totally forget about bands and then rediscover them all over again and i did it again when you made that post about new wave (thanks) question they may have there own genre but what are your thoughts on the B-52s early music.

That first self-titled album is a lot of fun....if you get the jokes that is. The Girls were always horrible vocalists, bent on kinda lampooning that whole Carolina soul thing and Schnieder...well, he's like a living, breathing cartoon character with a cartoon voice to match. The band barely knew how to play and the lyrics were beyond witty. Somehow it all worked. Everyone knows "Rock Lobster" of course, but the best tunes IMHO were "52 Girls" and the number one....ahhh "6060-842" (I had to look it up, been awhile). The cover of "Downtown" was funny as well.

Whilst I still have that album, I don't have Wild Planet anymore....outside of "Private Idaho" the joke seemed to wear thin, material didn't work so well, etc. You know, the usual second album slump. After that, I checked out the ep with David Byrne on it (and when that guy shows up on anything past 1979, you know you're in for medicore listening) and promptly lost faith....after that, nothing grabbed me and almost everything by them irritated me to no end.

It's quite rare for a guitar player to leave you slack-jawed in awe ... but that's just where I was when I first saw this on "The Dance" about 10-12 years ago ...

Astonishing.

Amazing ... in my experience, one thing that often distinguishes good guitar players from great ones is the focus on their right hand. It's too easy to become obsessed with your left hand and leave the right as an afterthought. This piece is a great example of somebody who thinks about, works on, and utilizes his right hand.

As amazing as this guitar work is, the left hand performs very very simple fingering ... it's the right hand that makes this special.

And along these lines ... his singing does not interrupt the rhythm, flow and execution of either hand or the tempo. That can be pretty tough ... I've performed solo a pretty fair amount, and you're really naked out there without a band. You gotta keep the music going at tempo no matter what, no matter how focused you'd like to get on the lyric. Walking and chewing gum, maybe. But it's tougher than it looks.

the guy i have jammed with all my life is left handed ... but only had a right handed guitar when he was a kid , so he learned to play it , so his dominant hand fingers ... that combined with his large clown like hands i think make him better then alot of guys i have seen .... when he was little and tried getting lessons the teachers couldn't do crap with him ... playing wrong handed and fingering everything all goofy cause of his giant hands ...
worked out real well tho ...

I'm too stupid to learn how to embed. Can someone explain it once more?Anyway, Procol Harum, A Salty Dog. Wish these geezers would tour the US. Robin Trower doesn't do the fake playing thing very well.

I perfer the early Railroad these days over the Sabbath & Zeppelin....not as overplayed to me over the years, the energy was always high, and Mel and Don rank right up there with my fave bass players and drummers. The addition of a keyboard player dulled the edge some, but it was still good stuff. The self titled Red album is one of my all time favorite albums.

I know I posted this somewhere before, but it's a great performance vid.

Too me farner and crew optimized the early 70s he just had a good solid voice and great guitar skills and i agree about mel he was a great bassist and you just can't help but love brewers afro.

short story: i was poaching records at good will and found a ( american band ) pressed in yellow vinyl and it had the original grand funk stickers that came with it. It's just rare to even find a funk record that wasn't played into the ground iam still looking for that mint hendrix, someday yep someday i will score it.

It's most likely an old blues song they covered, but I heard it here first.
