Kind of old music, but I can't get enough of Queen.


Right on, bro - Old School, I love it!  Queen made some great tunes, and I know my fellow lefty DSter is going to back me up on this - not to mention our translator pal DMast...  My opinion of MF11 just went up by a factor of 3.  Now the question is, just how low was it before?????

Thanks freebird, I hope it wasn't too low, but this might lower it again: Don't you think Freddie Mercury looked like Borat?

Oh, you can make fun of Mercury's look all you want - he was quite a character.  Musicians are all about shock value when it comes to their looks.  Perhaps Freddie was a bit ahead of his time with the Borat look, though?

Good luck on the court is nice to have, but it's usually extraneous when playing against Baker.

I was out for a few days on a little hiking trip - I plan to post in the general section if I can get the pics hosted properly.

Anyone ever hear of the band "Rooney"?  I'm listening to what I think is their 2nd album, which I think just came out.  Holy crap these guys have got it.  The first clue that they were superior was the blurb that informed me that they named themselves after the high school principal from Ferris Bueller's Day Off.  Uh huh.  DMast, you need to check these guys out, pronto!!!

Very cool...I've been listening to their recent album, and really like it.  And the Stella tune from their previous album is an all-time classic in my book.

I'll have to check out Incubus, not sure I've listened to them before....

WOW! An Interpol listener.

Their recent concert sold out in 10 seconds, I kid you not. 10 seconds! I couldn't get a ticket. I'm going to get their new CD now on your recommendation. (Maybe new Smashing Pumkins, too.)

Turn On The Bright Lights/Interpol (2002)
-Stella and Obstacle 1 are large; no misses on this CD

Antics/Interpol (2004)
-Evil, Slow Hands, C'mere are enormous; best album from start to finish

sample of Incubus (if it hasn't been yanked already)

Thanks for the review, Babble - it's always nice to have some direction when listening to new or even somewhat unfamiliar material.  I definitely need to relisten to Antic, because my first impression was that Turn on the Bright Lights was better.  And I hope I don't steer you wrong on the new one!

Here's a repost from May 29 - I think you were out and about then and probably missed this (a few pages back on this thread) - other new stuff that I've been listening to regularly lately.  I'm pretty sure you've mentioned Modest Mouse before, and I figure you're also pretty familiar with Kill Hannah, because they're from Chi-town.

I spent about 24 years in the '80s before deciding I was getting old and needed to find some new tunes.  I'm a Rhapsody subscriber now and somewhat at the mercy of what they highlight, but here are some of the acts I've been into lately:  

Pernice Brothers, Keane, Josh Rouse, The Charlatans, David Kilgour, Howie Day, Miguel Migs, Ryan Adams, Jack's Mannequin, Kill Hannah, Imogen Heap, The Teddybears, Mercury Rev, Modest Mouse, The Shins, Field Music, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Kaskade, The Sea and Cake, The Killers

Yeah, unlike most, my progression has been linear. I started with The Cars and DEVO in the late '70s, through The Smiths, REM, U2 and New Order in the '80s, Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins and the Foo Fighters in the '90s and haven't stopped. No one I know has heard of any of the bands I listen to. Most are stuck in the '80s, or worse, devotees of Pink Floyd (period). This year I saw both The Shins and Modest Mouse in concert--that was my third Mouse concert. Saw The Killers in '04 when they were comers. Hot Fuss is supreme, but I don't like what little I've heard from their follow up, so I have let them go for now. Kings of Leon were fantastic. Trying to acquire a taste for a bunch of youngin's that call themselves Silversun Pickups. "Lazy Eye" might be one of the greatest songs... ever! I was able to YouTube it some time ago; you should give it a listen. It's one of those very rare songs that, from the very beginning, it hooks you and makes you stop whatever you're doing. However, I wouldn't yet recommend the CD.

I did pick up Interpol, new Smashing Pumpkins (also a Chicago band) and another Incubus. No worries on the Interpol CD. All I needed was a slow day at the office. I was going to get it anyway.

Another Interpol fan here. I absoutely love Bright Lights. The song Say Hello to the Angles totaly reminds me of a song by Brian Eno called Third Unkle. They have a nice Joy Division tweak on modern rock. It's stellar. I've got Antics, but I've been pulled by other influences recently and haven't delved into it much.

Yeah, Joy Division was on the back of my tounge. Nice call.

Oh my gosh, if you like Joy Division, look up New Order, it's made up of some of the members of Joy Division. Their songs Age of Consent, Ceremony, and Temptation, are some of my favorites by them.

Yes! You are right about all of that. I own all of their stuff, including Low-Life, Republic and Waiting for the Sirens' Call (2005). Saw them in concert on their "Sirens'" tour. They played all their big hits from the '80s, too. They are still fantastic live. Really heavy on the guitar. Never considered them a guitar band (lead, rhythm, bass) until I saw them live.

Well I just bought 3 CDs from Amazon.com and they came today.  You "youngsters" probably won't know anything about these but I bought:

A Donny Hathaway Collection (Donny Hathaway)
Innervisions (Stevie Wonder)
Two Steps from the Blues (Bobby 'Blue' Bland)

All classics! :))

Certainly not my style of music, but to each their own.  I pretty much like the 80's all the way through a lot of today's music.
Good Luck on the Court!!!
