Music contrasts

I know “it’s just noise” is a very lazy criticism to level at music but it really is just noise.

Scary noise too

lady gaga and tony bennett was really weird

biggest musical contrast in your collection -

Still got all my old vinyl I bought as a kid so probably something like Adam & the Ants or Ultravox against the full on black metal I listen to a lot of these days, say Lamp of Murmuur or Paysage d’Hiver

Unusual musical collaborations -

The Spawn soundtrack had some odd collabs such as Henry Rollins & Goldie;

Noise is one genre that doesn’t really require any explanation as to what it’s like!

Probably The Wolfetones and William Onyeabor

Madonna rapping

I’m drinking a soy latte
I get a double shot
It goes right through my body
And you know I’m satisfied
I drive my mini cooper
And I’m feeling super-dooper
Yo they tell I’m a trooper
And you know I’m satisfied
I do yoga and pilates
And the room is full of hotties
So I’m checking out the bodies
And you know I’m satisfied
I’m digging on the isotopes
This metaphysic’s shit is dope
And if all this can give me hope
You know I’m satisfied
I got a lawyer and a manager
An agent and a chef
Three nannies, an assistant
And a driver and a jet
A trainer and a butler
And a bodyguard or five
A gardener and a stylist
Do you think I’m satisfied
I’d like to express my extreme point of view
I’m not Christian and I’m not a Jew
I’m just living out the American dream
And I just realized that nothing is what it seems

It’s not like it’s something that I throw on all the time, but I genuinely get a lot out of listening to merzbow every now and then.

I got the George Scholti conducted performances of Wagner’s Die Walkurie from Der Ring Des Nibelungen, and all three High School Musical soundtracks in my CD collection. Paid cash money to see both a full Ring Cycle performed by Opera North over 4 nights, and High School Musical On Ice. Is this a contrast, or just a consistent love of musical theatre?
