In reply to Duke :

Funny you mention that composer. I hadn't heard his name in years, and now I've heard it twice in the past week. Annie is reading a book about a few 70-something year old women who retired to Tuscany. One evening they were sitting around drinking local wine and listening to Ennio Morricone's greatest movie scores. Annie asked me if I knew who he was ...

PF - Lost for Words

This is a great live "contemporary" performance of PF (they don't have long hair anymore, at least David and Nick don't). And it includes a good core PF group: David Gilmore on strings, the late Richard Wright on keyboard, and the great car-guy Nick Mason on percussion.

Benny Carter - June in January

Benny was an alto sax player. Generally, I'm not a big fan of the alto sax ... because of the style many alto sax players think they must uphold (i.e. bebop Charlie Parker style). And that includes my friend Greg Abate, who is an international alto sax master. But Benny played alto like a tenor and I really like his style. This song exemplifies that.

The roller rink organ funk genre is underappreciated.

I'm stuck on the Bourbon Tabernacle Choir. Again. When the band shut down, they made their entire catalog including a bunch of live shows available to download for free which is a very cool move.

I've listened to the band Teenage Wrist's Chrome Neon Jesus album about 5 times today. Every single song on there is stellar. A friend recommended these guys to me and I'm hooked. They sound like a lot of the 90's Shoegaze/Alternative bands I loved back in the day all thrown into a nostalgic blender but with something new on top of it. It's so familiar, yet so new.

This week this came on the radio during the lunchtime request hour on the classic rock station that permeates where I work.

 

 

A couple minutes in, I literally froze mid-conversation and was like "hey, this is familiar but not"

 

Later, they had a "four play" of songs with "Fight" in the title.  One of them was this.

 

 

Channeling "Name That Tune", I recognized that tune in one note, thanks to having had the CD on mega-repeat through many of my formative years.  Halfway through the song, my boss said something to the effect of he used to listen to this a lot when he was younger and he'd never have thought they'd play it on the same station that gets a ton of Neil Young and CCR airplay.  Certainly not a NWOBHM-influenced-thrash-metal station.

When I was in college I wanted to pick up the bass.  A friend convinced me that nobody ever cares about the bass player, and I should learn guitar.

So I bought a guitar and an amp and noodled around for a few years, but I haven't played in a decade or two.

I wish I had learned the bass instead.

Duke, you are a man to listen to on music suggestions. Going to look for more Ursula 1000.

Hhere's a followup for you.

 

This version has better audio quality but misses out on the very trippy visuals.
