Liked that a lot, Bletchski. Always good to see (and hear) a Theremin getting an airing too.


#202

Not sure of it was clear from that video, Flyd, but the whole effort used. Instruments that were around in the 30s.

On that basis, I was amazed to see that a theremin was around in the 30s???

You were around in the 30s, Flyd, when was the theremin invented?


#203

Did you mean the 1830s there? It would be equally correct of course.

The Theremin was patented in 1928 by its inventor, Leon Theremin. He’d actually invented it in 1920, and was then sent on a tour to show off this great Soviet invention. In 1928 he moved to the US and patented the device. Around this time Leon Theremin came to me to ask about the potential of portraits stored in attics. What the fuck would I know about that sort of thing?

This is a nice punk rock cover of TV On The Radio’s “Wolf Like Me”.

Saw these two sisters support Will Varley at The Joiners. Love this version of IBYLGOTDF.

This might be controversial, given the somewhat icon status of the original (the 21st Century Teenage Kicks, imo) but absolutely love this. An entirely different slant on the track.

Bangin’ Choon

Only 4 months late, Bletch.

Lol.

At least I found a YouTube link instead of SOUND CLOUD!

Have you seen them live, KRG?

I’ve actually met them. I was excruciatingly pissed and went on and on about how the didn’t harmonise vocally, but instead contrasted.

Whatever.

Lovely girls, and very talented.

KRG gets very upset when he feels like people have stolen his material bletch.

Fortunately, I have two violent street gangs relatively nearby. The last time he sat brooding outside my house (on account of me stealing his content) with his baseball bat, the local tuffs mistook him for a scout for a major hipster drug trafficking network.

They removed him from the area, safely depositing him in the nearest cous cous emporium with a fresh pair of sandals.


#209

…I bet he hasn’t actually met them papster.

I think that means…

Bletchster hipster > KRG hipster

Especially as I sport a rather cool and timelessly fashionable bald pate, and he now rocks a bob with a fringe!

You know who John Fogarty is, even if you don’t think you do. Superb songwriter, but also one of the most ripped off people in the biz. Perhaps knowingly, he produced an album in collaboration with several contemporary artists.

This is his version of As Long As I Can See The Light, Fogarty on vocals, My Morning Jacket providing the instrumentation. It’s kind of magnificent.


#211

Cheeky get.

I was listening to them before they had a youtube account set up.

Check & mate.


#212

Liked that one, papster. Given the Dude’s liking for a bit of Creedence Clearwater Revival, I’m not surprised by your liking for John Fogerty (you could check your spelling of his name though :lou_wink_2:). And I’ll give you plenty of six to five that the first bit of guitar solo there was pllayed by Fogerty too. Just sounded that way.


#213

I heard this version before I even knew who recorded the original. Turns out that it was Johnny Cash. Much as I love Johnny Cash, this is in a different league.

I’ve been having a Calexico morning pior to their Brighton gig next Tuesday. This is so far from The Clash original it hardly qualifies are a cover…

My 2 guilty secrets in one cover version

A-ha - massively underrated in my opinion. Some excellent musicianship over many years and brave and bold lyrically and musically. Scoundrel Days was essentially a concept album about a guy who kills his missus nd goes on the run - not the teenybop band they often get mistaken for

Coldplay - used to be very good indeed, not so much in later years


#217

Cover of Ry Cooder’s “Across The Borderline”…Gaby Moreno and Calexico…

So, having mentioned them elsewhere earlier I’ve been on a bit of a Crystal Castles kick at my desk today.

Discovered that this track is actually a cover - not just a cover of themselves with Robert Smith’s vocals as an added extra (they did 2 versions), but a proper actual cover from way back when.

…and the original (it is pretty different)

Being a big Duran Duran and Reel Big Fish fan, what is there not to like.

Oh and a bit of Jimmy Eat World - Duran Duran.
