A rolling thread for when you discover something that flips your preconceptions or you learn something new
For instance, I just saw
this post from producer Dave Eringa about the big peeooooowww sound on If You Tolerate This by the Manics, and it’s not actually guitars making that twang
Think this is this thread sean!
As a nipper, I loved the song Ebeneezer Goode by The Shamen.
I knew every word and it was my party trick in Primary School to recite them.
Was over ten years later that someone (probably here) pointed out that the chorus line was “Es Are Good”. I had taken it on literal value, thinking it was about a man named Ebeneezer.
I had no opinion on ecstasy at that age, so I hope no-one thought badly of my parents.
You got any of these?
Less about being slow to realise, more there was no way of really knowing and it was preconceived / accepted. Maybe the same thing. I haven’t read most of the 1600 replies to see how it panned out, so apologises if I’ve misunderstood.
yeah tbh both of the ‘slow to realise’ threads have evolved into ‘things I’ve learnt’ really!
