As a SouthWalian Every Valley has a special resonance but I enjoy them all. I'm going to buy a couple of their CD's for my mother and stepfather some time.

If you can, get along to a show. I saw them touring the first record & what they put on was great, plenty of humour, lots of thought & effort went into it & I can't imagine they're less of a spectacle now. That said, I can't get past the idea that rake away the samples & what's left is a bang average indie dance outfit & yes I do get the narrative integral to the music.

As for the thread, I'm digging Drive by Truckers. The angriest band in the world. These boys are all about the lyrics & what lyrics. Here's a song excoriating the corrupt Televangelist thing.

This breakdown of Purple Rain, I had no idea the album version was an edit of a live recording.

Love the longer guitar intro.

Love the Prince thing.

Now to lower the tone, up here there is an awful radio show called The George Bowie Experience which is basically 3 hours or whatever or happy hardcore Ned music, Neds love it and people like me pretend to like it in an ironic way when we actually quite like it in unironic small doses. Anyway, there's a kinda trancey song called "Concrete Angel" that's become a bit of a weegie anthem but they've done a "just piano and singing" version of it and it's oddly quite good.

Ned music for sure but it's about 40-50 bpm too slow to be happy hardcore.

This has been doing the rounds. The Foos, of whom I'm not really a fan, are given AIUI, to regularly hoisting a fan out of the audience at their shows & giving them a go on a song. Dunno if it's generally a set up or not but this bloke completely nails it in every way.

Have we done this?

It's the original version of Nothing Compares to You, he was brilliant, the tiny purple bastard

He was indeed brilliant. But not at performing that song. That, performed by him, is awful.

Been re-enjoying a bit of Big Audio Dynamite, an old favourite and first band I saw live.

I've listened to a few more - really good stuff. Very Au Pairs.

Yes, you aren’t wrong. Had forgotten about The Au Pairs.

I had no idea LoneLady had done two albums, thought Hinterland was her first. Must get that ordered.

So what do you think about the phenomenon that is This Is America by Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover? Every newspaper is falling over itself to write wanky reviews of it.

Apparently the video is full of symbolism and a powerful allegory or something but the lyrics, if you can call them that, are pretty fcuking shit if you ask me. Public Enemy it ain't.

This song just appeared on a random Spotify playlist. Hip hops heads please give it a listen before revealing the spoiler.

  • SPOILER: Mouse over to reveal
    • I went to go and see what other stuff he'd done. I don't mind admitting I was utterly horrified to find out he looked like this.

Jonwayne, right?

Weirdly, he makes all his beats on the SP404 sampler, which is how I found him, through a user forum. You can hear the ‘looper effect’ that is on the 404 all over that tune as well. Such distinctive sounding boxes. Horrifying looking thing though, isn’t he? 27 years old!

Incredibly I found that video today. I like his Eminemesque flow, but his message is, well, a bit MAGA.
