What are you listening to now?

Maybe this can bring back some music you forgot about or even never heard about.

np:

The Scorpions - Taken by Force (album)

great sound and tracks, from the good days

I'm going through all my old records from my high school days in alphabetical order and deciding what stays and what gets the boot to make room for new ones, so I should have plenty to talk about that people forgot or never cared about in the first place ;)

Currently on: David Bowie - Let's Dance

I've got a few Scorpions including Taken by Force and was planning on chucking them without bothering to listen to them. I'll have to reconsider, but the S'es are a long way off :omg:

Now I'm on Shades of Deep Purple. It's a pretty nice pop album under a damn heavy(for 1968) exterior. There's even some weird synth squiggles at the beginning of their version of the Beatles' Help. I think I'll keep it.

Speaking of Bowie, I heard that they recorded vocals for the song Heros in a long basement like room with three microphones. One very close, one a few feet back, and one far back in the room. They let the dynamics of his performance determine the mix. It goes from intimate and breathy to massively belting it out. Sounds great.

That Heroes record of Bowie is also a tribute to the german Krautrockers.
He even made a german sung version of it.

There was some krautroock docu online a few months ago it was addressed in that.

np:

Section 25 - The Key of Dreams
http://www.section25.com/biography/
http://sonofoneiros.blogspot.com/2009/0 ... reams.html

on the Factory Records lable which was also was documented in a movie. Tony Wilson, what a story, anyways...

Joy Division, Happy Mondays and such were also on that label.

Section25 has a lot of different sound/styles, but this one is alot like joy division..

Jump to 2:24 if you wish to see all that I ever needed to know about dance moves:

Hard to beat those dub basslines, jagged guitars, and intelligent lyrical matter. All dipped in a crunchy skinny-boy-hardcore shell.

The dual-drummer/roadie era was tons o' fun:

And now for something with more hair and far less string-tension:

Tractor's eponymous album.

John Peel signed them to his Dandelion label in the 70's, and even gave them money to buy their PA! Terrific stuff!

I played it again to check my memory. There's a lot of great stuff going on to make this fairly slow song build intensity, like a bolero. I love the arrival of the tambourine track which they save until very late in the song, almost 4 minutes in. It's kind of breakthrough moment, and that sparkly sound completes the mix beautifully.

every year when i go back to the uk i bring another stack of my old vinyl collection back to japan with me.

some standout stuff has been all the old psychic tv albums, various hawkwind, fields of the nephilim, the who, and the cocteau twins, and the original pure trance mix of "what time is love" by the klf, the b-side is just the most amazing thing, and i can't believe it was released in 1988!!!

Listening to this right now:

It's the oldest long playing record I own and pretty scratchy despite the fact that it looks like new.
