    One of Leicesters finest, Rival Consoles.

    Aye, the new record is splendid. That, Singularity by Jon Hopkins, and anything touched by Jon Spencer has been on the music player a lot recently.

    Also, Sci-fi Lullabies by Suede, the b-sides collection. Damn I should have got this 20 years ago, I loved early Suede and was familiar with My Insatiable One but had not heard other b-sides. The Bernard Butler songs are just go good, as good if not better than some of the 'proper' album tracks, and that's saying something.  Incredible guitar player; I find it very very difficult to work out his parts. Not so sure about the songs post Butler; I've never really got into Suede post Bernard.

    @MagicPigDetective When I saw Bernard on the McAlmont and Butler anniversary tour, I felt very pleased with myself as I'd taught myself how to play the first record and found I wasn't that wrong watching Bernard hammer them out. Whereas Johnny Marr is all about inventive chords and rhythmic picking, Bernard to me is about quite basic chords but finding lovely flourishes around those chords and when linking them together. Something like the twiddly bit in Yes (Watch the below thingy from about 3.40 onwards)



    I'd recommend finding the Dog Man Star TAB book and going through that. Once you get an idea of how Bernard does it, it helps with all the stuff he's played on.

    Last night I went to see EUROPE. They were excellent. John Norum is a phenomenal guitarist. In fact, the whole band are excellent musicians. Norum is severely underrated, as are Europe as a band... His playing is mind-boggling.

    Admittedly, I'm a fan of all 3 'sides' of Europe.
    There's the early days... songs about ninjas and instrumental tracks with Norwegian titles...
    The glory days (The Final Countdown/Out of This World/Prisoners albums)
    And the latter days e.g. Start from the Dark, War of Kings...

    They played a mixed set. The only albums they didn't call upon being Start From the Dark and Secret Society which is disappointing because I love Start From the Dark.

    Agreed on both Jon Hopkins and Rival Consoles

    The new Daniel Avery is fantastic too and in a similar vein
    Stop crying, start buying

    Cool, thanks for the pointers, I need to dedicate some time to this and tune down to Eb.

    My recent listens are new albums by Sleep, Perfect Circle, khruangbin, Manics, and The Hunter by Mastodon which I had manged to miss until last week. 

    Want to check out Singularity and Stephen Malkmus’ new record

    I don't always enjoy listening to them, but I seem to be in a Graveyard mood tonight.

    today i have been mostly listening to... a whole ton of late 70s early 80s new wavey things & this song prob got an instant replay, as it's such perfect cheeky alt pop.

    & it also made me think how many national anthems (& mutations-mutilations of) get into songs. the beatles (all you need is love), hendrix (star spangled), sex pistols (god save), banshees ('deutschland uber alles' in their version of the lord's prayer).

    this intro to this is the japanese national anthem, right?


    what she said.

    The Hyena Kill. Awesome band if you're into loud and aggressive, huge sound especially for a 2 piece.
