Still digging this one.

One of the most gorgeous melodies/themes I've ever heard.

It's surreal when you realize that if a band like Yes came along right now they wouldn't be able to get airplay - a sad reminder of how much commercial music has devolved over the last 30 years.
Commercial music has returned to where it was before Elvis, Roy Orbison, Motown, etc. A bunch of retreaded 3 1/2 minute pieces with repetitive progressions, structure, and melody.

I blame the widespread use of Pro Tools and voice pitching software that makes everyone sound the same now.

I think its more that the record industry collapsed in the late 90's.

I was playing out quite a bit in the early-mid 90's and several of my friends' bands got record contracts with major distributors.. The industry collapsed and it pretty much killed the local scene. They were all doing interesting, original things.

The major music distributors have been trying to fight pirating ever since, and in that process has been less and less willing to take risks on original music. Where in the burgeoning early 90's you had some interesting material popping out of corners all over the world, this generation has templates of a few different productions that it tries to market through clear channel, etc. All of today's music has been homogenized. There's the bad-girl pop (Pink, late Britney Spears, etc), the good-girl pop (Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson, early Britney Spears), Metal-pop (Nickelback, Puddle of Mudd, Breaking Benjamin, etc), Rock-pop (the Killers, Weezer, etc.), Rap-rock (a bunch of bad stuff), etc.

They funnel the production of those bands to have similar qualities.

Oh, I agree with that, 100%, sure. It wasn't really what I was talking about, but it's certainly a valid point of view IMHO.

I've been listening to a lot of Captain Beefhart, early Brian Eno and The Fall lately.....it's hard on ears not open to difficult listening.

That is what I was originally talking about. If you are referring to vocal processing, then I would just say that today's processing is yet another era in a history that goes back to the inception of radio.

Beefheart is one of the most interesting characters in American music history, IMO.

Sure is. I've found that most people like his more conventional, blues based stuff, but as soon as albums like Trout Mask Replica or Bat Chain Puller are pulled out, well....very few seem to be able to handle his more challenging work.

January is shaping up to be a cool month for me show-wise...Agent Orange, Henry Rollins, The Pietasters and Dinosaur Jr. Speaking of which, Macias has always been one of my faves

Any fans of The Fall out there?



It's not for everyone, but I've become totally infatuated with the works of Mark E. Smith. Collecting them is quite the challenge since The Fall is probably the most prolific band in the history of recorded music.

Not really a Pink fan, but Justin Derrico plays a pretty blistering solo on this Led Zeppelin cover:

When I was a little kid my dad was principal of the high school, and sponsor of the student council. They hired the Kingston Trio play, and I got to go. I think it was about 1963. The were good - they had red and white striped jackets and wide brimmed cream colored straw hats with a reddish band around them. Played stuff like Where Have All The Flowers Gone.

It was a different kind of crowd than the Kings of Leon at the Fillmore last year.

I would've loved to have seen them.....I've never seen an authentic folk act.

Zeppelin gets a stamp in UK

Guitar God with a blow up of his new stamp

Royal Mail's classic album covers special stamps go on sale, featuring classic album covers from the last four decades. Jimmy Page, guitarist of Led Zeppelin, poses with a blown up stamp featuring the artwork from the band's fourth album.

I have never heard of this record or band before, can you provide more info on it please? I'm assuming it's in a similar vein as the other stuff you listed, correct?
