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!

Monastic Living is probably one of my favorite EPs

i got lyrics already but it's only one verse
I recorded one but the vocals came out bad. I'm going to a pro studio because i suck as an audio engineer and my neighbors are always playing steely dan so loud I can't get a good take that isn't in a closed loop

sharp stinging biting singing deep biting singing
sharp stinging biting thrashing deep cuting biting thrashing x 4 rambling

i can't wait to make you feel my edge
penetrate your insides and bring them out
i sharpened it for you AREN'T YOU PROUD?????
let me hear you sing it out loud

tell me how you love my edge
say you want it deep inside x 2

i wish I could provide a melody but the current take is so bad I'm mad at myself
hoping my engineer works some magic

Some songs don't need lyrics like Iromon Record's The Lethal Weapon cover of "Shoryuken ga tenai" using Ken's Theme.

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.

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?

My old man passed away very recently. I made this song for him some months back, as a dirge. I live abroad, and whenever I fly back home I make music using cheap equipment and instruments. Well anyways, he liked the song, and he knew what it was for, since at that time he was already very ill and on oxygen. I've been having a rough time processing his death, we were close. Just thought I'd make a thread here to share the song I made in his honor. I've frequented this community for many years, and I hope I don't rustle any feathers with the random thread sharing a single song.

It's called Saying Goodbye in A Minor


Bye, Dad.

reminds me of Philip Glass, especially Prophecies. which is funny, because it was my dad who introduced me to his music through the movie Koyaanisqatsi.
it was movie night and he randomly picked it out. he ended up haaating it, but I loved it.
thanks papa. I miss you.

tell us more about your dad, OP. how he died, how he lived.
Henry Fushsteck - Tue, 30 Jul 2019 14:49:40 EST SfuccewQ No.455253 Reply
He died of a 12cm round cancerous growth which developed in one of his lungs. He went peacefully in his sleep, without any pain, or choking, or fear. I thank a personal higher power that I believe in for this.

He was a soldier in the Vietnam war, and he was stationed for the most part in the central highlands, a place my uncle (stationed elsewhere) referred to often as "the shit." Dad told me many war stories over the course of my life. Most of them I don't want to share publicly.

He was a private man, having no close friends at the end of his life. He enjoyed urban gardening and growing, making high-yields of tomatoes, eggplant, squash, onion, garlic, various chili peppers, along with some herbs. Eventually, towards the end of his life, he invested in a temperature-controlled pro-lighting indoor closet grow area, and brought three lovely ladies to maturity and harvest.

He was also very passionate about caring for miniature trees. Over the course of his life he developed his own style that was quite different than traditional Eastern bonsai. My favorite of his miniature trees was a plum tree he had for many years. Since my early adolescence and up until my last visit, he kept that old plum tree healthy, happy, tiny, and extremely pleasing to the eye.

In his youth, he was a dog person, until a neighbor poisoned his dog "Whiskey". That was long before I was born. I will always remember him a cat person. Teaching them cute little tricks that would impress my eventual wife, etc.

He was mechanically-oriented, (worked the motor pool at base camp when not on patrol) and a serious tinkerer. Always was. When I was a boy he taught me how to reverse polarity of a servo by spinning it in reverse, enough to light up an LED. He also helped me create a secret desk alarm out of soldering a switch to a fire alarm and affixing it to the inside of a sliding desk drawer when I was a boy.

When I was a young boy, he had a severe alcohol problem, and my mother eventually divorced him, but as it played out over the years the two would never fully part. It was a love/hate relationship to the end between them, but the last words he muttered to my mother was a faint "I love you." The next morning he was gone.

Alright, I know there's at least some who play live music here regularly. Anyone ever used in-ear monitors?

My band's had like five gigs in a row recently where the on-stage sound has been terrible, and we're thinking IEMs might be a potential solution. From my research I think they might solve some problems but not all. Anyone have any opinions on them?

I'm not sure about you live bands, but as a DJ, having a decent set of booth monitors is wonderful. IEMs are great for cueing in place of headphones. That's my 2 cents.

I kind of enjoyed the idea of this album tbh, but I the only track I keep going back to is Money Machine because it's catchy. I like how the end result is just pop that's too noisy, but given the history of music that already exists, it doesn't remain super interesting for a long time. I'd like to see them do more with this sound.

Just wanted to throw that out there, I have no recs for you, OP. Sorry.
