1001 Albums: DiS - Day 1: The Slider by T-Rex

This might well die a death, but it seemed like a good idea.

An album from the 1001 Albums to listen to… book, randomly generated each day. Let’s all listen to it and have a chat about it!

Great album, not as good as Electric Warrior though.

Yeah, I’m a really sucker for Mambo Sun. And that one The Black Keys did that sounded exactly like it.

‘I danced myself out of the womb’ is an all time great line too.

Gave this album another go recently as it came up on some rubbish YouTube thing I watched where they reckoned it was better then Electric Warrior. Have to disagree, EW is just a blast from start to finish, this has great individual songs but just doesn’t engage me as an album.

Oh great thread idea btw

Not sure if you have The Power to update the thread title with which album it is every day, but that might be a good idea from tomorrow onwards?

It’s a nice idea, but I can confirm I do not have the power.

For the record I tried to change it to “1001 Albums: DiS – 1: The Slider (T. Rex)”.

You’ll need to ask a more powerful DiSser.

Well today was the day I learned morrissey plagiarised metal guru for panic

Love this idea. Going to be listening to album number one this afternoon then.

Apparently I can edit thread titles :man_shrugging:t2:

Is there a way for me to gain this power? I doubt anyone else can be arsed to edit my thread title every day for 1001 days.

Had always found the big T-Rex singles pretty annoying and never dug any further, but I’m actually quite enjoying this :+1:

@moderators can you make Steve a strong person that can do this?

OR would we rather a new thread every day?

You should definitely give Electric Warrior a go. It’s this but better.

Although saying that, Buick Mackane’s great eh?

Listening along. It’s… Fine.

Wouldn’t miss it if I hadn’t listened to it before I died.
