The golfers' Music Room

Post by Davie on Thu Sep 01, 2011 2:20 pm

First topic message reminder :

Mac started a really good thread today and while I'm not as fussy about things going off topic as some people, it does seem a shame to drown out Mac's thread with music chat - so I think we'll have a music corner for us golfers (in addition to the forum-wide music section)

I know Kwini is keen on his music, often throwing musical references into his ballwasher topics (I remember one of his last efforts on the old site being entitled The Boys Are Back In Town, and the conversation going off into Thin Lizzy territory!

S_R (on the other thread) made a reference to "hating the Beatles" - discuss! Whistle

Anyone listen to The Gaslight Anthem? Brain Fallon has just released a side project named the Horrible Crowes which is fantastic, I highly recommend giving it a listen. It's a bit slower pace than his usual stuff but really melodic and lyrically superb.

Anyone watching Project Dawn Strike Back?

The show itself is not bad, although the 'heroes/heroines' seem to be a tad unsuccessful.

However, the title tune is Short Change Hero by The Heavy. Great track - hmm shame I can't seem to get into the rest of their album. *yikes* Shocked

I increasingly dislike Oasis's stuff, when I was 14 it seemed ok but now I dont listen to much more than Champagne Supernova and wonderwall. No doubt that is only for some sentimental reasons at that.

You listen to Wonderwall? Blimey! It is a great song but I was sick of hearing it within 6 months of the release of WTSMG. I don't think it would feature in my top 40 favourite Oasis tracks. I only like Champagne Supernova for Weller's guitar solo.

Used to love Oasis stuff, the first 2 albums still get the occasional airing but I've found Definitely Maybe to be more enduring than Morning Glory.
Saw them live around 1994 and thought they were brilliant, never saw them again live until Knebworth. For some inexplicable reason post Knebworth I just didn't have the same appetite for their music, dunno why, just over exposure perhaps.

I downloaded the solo album last week, and have to say some of it is better with Noel singing than his halfwit brother. Noel's an acomplished if not really good guitar player, and is /was obviously the main part of the Oasis line up.

Agreed Doc, I've no idea why they let Liam 'sing'. All the stuff I prefer (Talk Tonight, Half the World Away etc) all have Noel singing. Liam was ok on the first album, less so on the second and then just seemed to get worse. Plus he seems a right knob.

I use it all the time. It's great for checking out new stuff as well as catching up with the vinyl that you were going to replace with cd's (if you're my age), but never got round to - Aynsley Dunbar being one such act, Steve Forbert another.

I pretty much only use spotify these days, even my 100 odd gb of music cannot compare.


As for listening to wonderwall, what I meant was it dont skip it that often on shuffle. Actually I really hate shuffle and play lists, I have a thing about only listening to albums. I dont even listen to best of stuff.

Watched the Specials gig in Nam on Monday night. A real 'blast from the past'. Terry Hall is still a miserable f****r. He makes SR look like Lee Evans. They opened with Gangsters (their first ever hit single - remember it well) but the 'goose-bumps' moment came when they encored with 'Do Nothing'. The economy has come full circle, times are tough and the songs the Specials sing about are still as relevant today as when Maggie was in her pomp imho...

This seems a good place to post this as it is rather off topic

Had a terrific night last night down at my local where there was a "mega-music quiz" put on for 11/11/11 in aid of Help for Heros

A normally quiet little village pub was as busy as I've ever seen it with something like 40-50 people pitting their wits against the quiz masters who had put together rounds of 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and a "beat the intro" round

Coped OK with the 60s though some of those 60s Motown bands all seem to merge into one to me, great though they are

70s was the easiest round for me; The 80s also wasn't too bad for me although in some ways that was the hardest round as the woman who set the quiz was herself a child of the 80s and so shyed away from what might be considered the easier stuff (as to her it was too easy). Tasmin Archer, Sigue Sigue Sputnik, Arcadia, Fiction Factory all proving tough tests.

90s was a nightmare for me though thankfully I had a younger couple on my team who knew their 90s quite well

Finished 2nd eventually, only falling behind a team who are considered a bit of a "pro quiz team"

Raised nearly £350 for Help for Heros which was a great effort by all and it really was a fantastic night for music fans like myself although even the more casual music fan seemed to enjoy it

That reminds me:

It's like the 90 year old fella I met yesterday he was sat on a bench in the Park, head in hands crying his eyes out. Concerned.......... "What's the matter I asked?"

"Well I got married recently to a 25 year old Beauty Queen and she's a nymphomaniac; she expects me to perform at least once every morning, noon and night"

"Come on" I said "it's not the end of the world if you can't quite live up to expectations"

"It's not that he said" it's just that I can't remember where I live!"

I saw an ad on side of bus stop today for "NOW 80". I can also remember the original compilation - Phil Collins "You Can't Hurry Love", Mike Oldfield "Moonlight Shadow", Men Without Hats(?) "Safety Dance"...

Now 6 was I think the first one which was bought in our household though (but not by/for me). Strangely, although I recall it being very good, am really struggling to remember specifically what was on it, other than Level 42's "Something About You". Perhaps another sign that I'm getting too old for this [stuff], to quote more pop culture from the 80s.

For starters I would rather listen to monty pounding his man sausage than the stereophonics. So the cold feet soundtrack would be a joy in comparison.

To A and B, no. But nothing to do with him molesting kids and rather that the music is such dirge.

Sorry to sound harsh but I feel you need to read through this thread and try some of the great musicians listed.

mac

there is only two types of music.

music you like and music you dont. HE wasnt a great musician, far from it, more of a showman, and i dont feel the need to download his back catalogue, but i cant help feeling it is no worse than listening to michael jackson.

re. the phonics...the first two albums were good...i would burn the rest.

What old Mr Paed0phile himself?...little did anyone know when that song was released that it was children of primary school age that he wanted to be in his gang.

So definitely no and definitely no would be my answers...best immediately consigned to the garbage bin in my opinion.

Thats a good shout actually. What are peoples guilty musical pleasures they you might not admit to in person. We all know that diggers is fond of X-factor style stuff, something you might say to your friends.

My own guilty pleasures are Nick Heywards (haircut 100) solo stuff from about 95 on and latter day A-ha (the four most recent albums).
