The Pere Ubu Moon Unit

Excellent, although attending last year's concert in Edinburgh gives it some context (basically the band improvising before the actual planned set) The hardest bit was getting the CD out of it's sleeve!

Clearing The Path To Ascend - Yob

Decent album by the doomsters but not their best.

Music in Twelve Parts /The Philip Glass Ensemble

Something like four hours of music here. The very pinnacle of minimalism?

I Am The Golden Gate Bridge by Creature With The Atom Brain. Not great but very listenable kind of early Queens with a dash of Soundtrack Of Our Lives.Could never get on with Motley Crue, Collette, mainly due to the godawful singer who sounds to me like a male version of Grace Slick when she was in Starship.

Hi Foe.

Many thanks for recommending The The's Naked Self.

Good stuff, but as you say, very dark.

Cheers Spirit, I'll wait for the price to drop then. :-)

Strange Trails - Lord Huron

A denser sound than Lonesome Dreams with nods to mariachi, rockabilly, country, Ennio Morricone, chamber pop and driving rock. Most enjoyable, but maybe runs out of steam slightly towards the end.

On first listen not bad but as you say nothing new.

Will give a few more plays but not sure will be a regular player unlike Troublegum or Infernal Love.

Mind you the last 2 did grow on me so who knows. Looks like might be having so major Therapy this weekend.

Am enjoying my beer though :-)

Any good Spirit? I've heard 'Still Hurts' and thought it was pretty average, not bad but nothing new.

Primrose Green - Ryley Walker

Very few artists are truly original, but this is just too derivative (Bert Jansch, John Martyn, Tim Buckley) for me. Is it coincidence that they've all passed? That said, it's certainly not an unpleasant listen and I can't fault the musicianship. However, young Ryley really needs to find his own identity.

Could be worse of course, his dad could've been a Genesis fan!

Nirvana Live & Loud [DVD] [2013]
Rigth now the very Electric cover of David Bowie's Man WHO sold the World --- good stuff.

What I like about this forum is: eclecticism.

we all have our own tastes & preferences, Collette - as long as your own are to your prolonged pleasure, that's all that matters.

Some of the good folks on here have led me to appreciate stuff I hadn't heard or considered previously, so the trick is to have an open mind (just not so that "anything can crawl right in", as Mr. Devoto
sang here):

shot by both sides / my mind ain't so open 45 rpm single

Maybe one of the proper great singles of the 70s....?

For one hopeful moment, I thought Collette was digging into the archive treasures of Mr. MacManus!

That's a very essential early (1st 10years) Costello collection - 2CD set available here at bargain price:
