Must've listened to this 20 times in a row.
On a Talking Heads binge lately. Anyone else like them?
sort of. I just can't do entire albums of such ott 80s sounds though.
Yeah I really haven't sat down and listened to their albums from start to finish. Some of their songs are gems though in an otherwise ordinary period of music.
Psychokiller, Road To Nowhere, One In A Lifetime...
Haha my old man was probably in his 30s throughout most of the 80s and virtually didn't have any records from that period. He reckons music had a time out period or something similar.
For that reason I'm really limited when it comes to 80s music and I don't think that will ever change. Was a 90s kid myself.
Same with my old man. Hardly any records from the 80's. It was a shit period for a lot of things. Fashion, movies, music. 90's and 70's burn the fuck outta the 80's.
I really like this live performance. Byrne was such a talent. Cunt absolute despises the rest of the band and they him.... He was Talking Heads though. No doubt about that.
Yeah Burning Down the House is what their known for by most IMO.

Sometimes I can't decide if I like The Eagles or hate them. I know a lot of their songs by heart and have been listening for like 20 years but I've never bought an album or sat and listened to one all the way through.
I like Hotel California, although I think it's one of the most overrated rock songs of all time. And I like Desperado as well as Lyin' Eyes. I don't mind Take It Easy, Peaceful Easy Feeling and One Of These Nights.
Life In The Fast Lane is garbage. As are Heartache Tonight, The Long Run and New Kid In Town.
I just don't understand why they were so big. Greatest Hits 71-75 is the third highest selling album of all time.....of all time ffs, and it doesn't even have Hotel California on it. Imagine if it did.
What do you blokes think of them?
Nothing wrong with a bit of Al Green, tbh.

Though I do think Take it Easy and Peaceful Easy Feeling are pretty decent songs. They're like a shit adult contemporary America.

This is a song I re-discovered last year after not hearing it since I was very young and used to just listen to whatever my old man had on record.
So the Js put me onto this guy:

I can't find a dl for the original version of his debut album (that he's re-releasing here, Britain and the States in English). I'd much prefer the Icelandic version but it's a cunt top find.

Classic Aussie pub music. Saw them a few years ago. Still quite tight.
So I've finally tracked down some of Justin vernon's solo stuff from before Bon Iver (I'd only ever heard Deyarmond Edison albums, which are brilliant too) and on first listen it is fucking unreal. 3 songs into Hazeltons and I'm mesmerised.
Did you like his blues band, The Shouting Matches? Admittedly I haven't heard his pre Bon Iver stuff with the exception of Volcano Choir before but that's what sold him to me as a top tier musician.
Volcano Choir is post Bon Iver.
