I mainly listen to metal but other genres are welcome.


"Please don't insult our intelligence. Hemp is illegal cause it threatens your wealth. Dupont, Exxon and a thousand other companies would rather see you die than lose money for your health."

Now we must utilize a source. That can be grown with ease. Save our habitat and stop killing wildlife and soil by removing trees. Land is in scarce supply and hemp roots help anchor soil, which stops erosion nutrifies land while rainforest's spoil. We must put aside myths and legends based on lies. Hemp the weed of wisdom will help wipe the tear from natures eye.

This art punk band called Parquet Courts has some really good lyrics. Here is some snippets from the song "Total Football".

We are troubled by your soft curiosity
But delighted to be anti everything you were taught
Are you put off by our footloose fluidity?
Have your hurt caucasian feelings left you so distraught?

Only through those who stay awake can an institution be dismantled
It is dishonest, nay, a sin to stand for any anthem that attempts to drown out the roar of oppression

Swapping parts and roles is not acting but rather emancipation from expectation
Collectivism and autonomy are not mutually exclusive
Those who find discomfort in your goals of liberation will be issued no apology
And fuck Tom Brady!

So how to fix it? What if we create a multicasting network that works exactly like broadcast radio, except instead of IP addresses, we have virtual frequencies? We then give people a randomized name like the old stations, hook it up everywhere, and make it the standardized way to broadcast music. It's like the old radio model on the new streaming model except it's multicast, so no custom streams, and that's the point. When things are algorithmically engineered the way they think you want, you get pidgeonholed and stagnated into the musical hole that they think they can use to make money off of you.

If we do it this way, you can still have custom private streams like Spotify, but we essentially revive the old-school radio network and expand it to make advertisers have to compete for popular stations instead of having stations have to suck the dick of advertisers just to make ends meet.

I'm down for that.
I live live radio and the feeling of connection it gives me to other people and the hosts.
I would LOVE to be an internet radio host, I used to make mixtapes on my boombox and daydream that I was playing them for a live audience over FM.
We can do this with shoutcast and similar technology, the only barrier is bandwidth ... I have a really nice connection but my upload speed is garbage (1mb/s).

I think you should make this thread in /prog/ or at least /tech/

afik multicast routing is not available for any pleb over the regular Internet. Tech giants use it over their own network to distribute content across their own networks.
Multicast routing is an incredible DDOS vector so in order for you to use it you have to own the network.
If you really want to do it you may try contacting a community mesh network in your area.

Gonna be recording vocals for this later

It was tool being tool. It wasn't bad but it was not their best work. It was like a b side to the album before. I never liked alt rock tool but they had a sound for an album or two that was pretty good then they just stopped.

A lot of other bands have done more exciting things in the mean time. Prog is short for progressive. Other bands have repeatedly reinvented themselves released swathes of albums. The melvins did something a bunch of butthole surfers, voivod did 2 great albums even without piggy. Djent came up, got exciting, got stale and went away again. Dillinger escape plan reinvented themselves a second time and ruled the world then retired. Their singer's porn star girlfriend gave up porn for his dick and basically these guys sat around waiting for Maynard to do his side projects. Primus got back together and did some good work, Elder wrote a bunch of 10 minute songs with 3 times as many ideas in. I could go on for a lot longer.

Maybe they'll surprise us with the rest but the bar has been raised in their absence.

I dunno, they had a couple good singles but their albums were always really hard to get into. They also have that uppity, "I'm an artist, I am holier than thou" attitude. Plus I've met some of their hardcore fans and it just does the same thing to me. Kinda like the 120lb dude who loves heroin and thinks the Beatles are just the epitome of musical greatness and will just give a passive Frenchmen's wave at any notion that there is something better or that you don't like the Beatles.

Honestly, I'd probably rather listen to the new Korn or Slipknot album and relive my late 90's youth music there.

Which band/musician for you defines coolness? For me it's got to be these guys, and subsequently New Order. Happy Mondays and The Stone Roses are probably tied for a close second. 808 State are up there too. Madchester in general is probably the coolest scene for me. Honorable mentions to Can, X, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Spacemen 3, Gang of Four, Love, Soft Machine, and Lou Reed/The Velvet Underground.

Ultimately I went with Joy Division/New Order because I think they perfectly captured that fashionable, disaffected, disinterested nihilism that was the zeitgeist of the late 70's-early 80's counter-culture. I think in a much more refined, genuine, and infinitely more artistic way than acts like the Sex Pistols ever did (big fan of Lydon's later work with Public Imagine Ltd. though). I'm a huge fan of the whole post-punk scene, both in the UK and the States, and I think Joy Division are easily the best example of the genre, as loosely defined as it is.

Everything about their entire act, from the music and lyrics, to Ian's vocal style, their clothes, ragged appearance, penchant for drug use and general tired and depressed demeanor can be seen as a single artistic entity. While not intentional, because of the passion they put into their music and the confident personas they assumed on stage and off, their entire lives were their work and it really showed.

They were always genuine too, they did exactly what they wanted to do without filtering it through the lens of what they "should" be doing to be successful. They had this platform where music was changing at the base and nothing was off limits and they used this to their advantage to write some very cerebral minimalist pop with a genuinely innovative aesthetic and they pulled it off incredibly well.

I mean just look at Peter Hook, who I think best manages to make looking sad, disheveled and constantly on the brink of death unbelievably attractive, with pure confidence and anticharasma. I mean that's more down to personal preference than anything though, I absolutely prefer guys like him to people like a lot of the showboating chauvinists to enter alternative music in the years since.

They, along with a handful of other bands like Gang of Four, Siouxie Sioux, Television, and Talking Heads pretty much single-handedly developed the sound and aesthetic that would come to define alternative music, and heavily influence pop, for the next two decades.

>The idea of "progress" in art is a complete myth. While certainly there are trends in art and it'd be very difficult if impossible to create art free of influences from other works contemporary and historical, at the end of the day a work of art is its own entity in its own time in its own reality, despite being intertwined with our own experience. It's impossible to say objectively that one work of art is wholly better than another, the only things you can judge are how the work affects you personally and the style and technique of the artists.

You understand progress wrong. Progress doesn't necessarily mean to improve, its just a change. Music changes it doesn't stagnate for long and its easy to prove. You can easily track the death, creation and progress of several music genres since we have musical recordings.

OP have you read the book Rip it Up and Start Again by Simon Reynolds? I highly recommend it :)

>I mean just look at Peter Hook, who I think best manages to make looking sad, disheveled and constantly on the brink of death unbelievably attractive, with pure confidence and anticharasma.
I saw Hooky & The Light a few years ago and he was all of these things except attractive haha. Cutting about the crowd playing Love Will Tear Us Apart with his moobs out. Great show though!

For me it's hard to pick a single coolest band/artist, but I have the most respect for those artistes who unabashedly follow their own vision, regardless of how it's received or what's expected of them.

Also, the Smiths > Joy Division, there we go

Yeah you're 100% correct. I honestly don't even fully remember writing that part. I've been posting this stuff on like day 3 (4 now?) of a speed binge.

Own it but haven't really read it yet, it's been on my backlog for a while, might as well give it a read soon. Gutted Hook split, he was always my favorite in both bands, never really looked into why it was so acrimonious, neither parties tend to look good in these kinds of disputes. Really need to see The Light soon though.

In that vein though I DID manage to catch New Order at a festival where they completely out of nowhere opened with Disorder (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g12dtWVIP3w) while I was just starting to peak on .3 of md. Easily one of the best moments of my life. I always thought they didn't play Joy Division songs but they must've given that up at some point. I thought maybe that was Hook's thing but now it clearly isn't that either. I dunno.

Definitely shouldn't of left out the Smiths though, I guess at the time I didn't think of them as cool in the same way. Honestly they're the only band I can think of where I genuinely like every single song they did. Even New Order had a few duds here and there for me, so I guess in that sense I like The Smiths more.

>he was all of these things except attractive haha

Yeah, rock stars have a tendency to not age particularly gracefully if they don't end up overdosing. I like a lot of older artists but it always feels quite rude to use the past tense lol

>Marc Almond sure WAS cute, damn, not like he looks now though, looking like a melted action figure now

Morrissey actually didn't age that poorly at all though imo now that I think of it.

Depends on the group or stoners. I know some groups that only listen to white people reggae. Some listen to rap. I listen to ambient music, some kinds of classical music, some kinds of metal and harsh noise. I know people that are the same way, but I also know people that would go home if that kind of music was playing while they were somewhere.

Technically there's tons. I think a lot of things become stoner music just because of the lyrical content.
>Can be stereotypical, or more factually consistant.
I don't think there are factually consistent stoner artists. Sure there are Hendrix and Bob Marley and whatnot but I think those fall under stereotypes. Anyway here are some samples of what I'd consider stoner music (based on stereotypes, contact with stoners and personal experience(all of them)).
And these are only songs about weed, not just artists associated with it

My manic plunderphonics/breakcore project Now Is Fish just released a new 5 track EP for the first time in 5 years. This EP is a voyage about flying doors migrating back to south.

Can't guarantee it's enjoyable, but rather, extremely experimental. You've been warned.

Is this even a thing anymore? It seems incredibly stupid. I was listening to Brian Jonestown Massacre on YouTube and people in the comments were STILL talking shit about Dandy Warhols, calling them "faggots" and talking about how much they hated them. How little to you have to have going on in your life to give a shit about this sort of thing? A lot of these kids weren't even alive when any of the drama between the two bands was happening?

I'm not saying people can't prefer a band, I think the Dandy Warhols are a lot better and BJM is the proverbial broken clock that's right twice a day. I mean if you have so much in your discography you've gotta have a couple good songs and they do, but the Warhols are so much consistently better. But to engage in this shit where you have to choose one or the other is juvenile.

Another time someone was absolutely astonished that I could like The Cure and The Smiths, like he didn't think it was physically possible. I had no idea that rivalry even existed.

Shit's fucking stupid. Why do people care about beef between people they've never met and never will meet?
