I’m pretty excited about checking out their new and recent stuff. didn’t know they’d gotten into marching band kinda stuff ^ _ ^


#1834

<3 <3 <3

where is Erlend Øye these days


#1835

tracks from this keep popping up now and again when I have my tunes on my phone on shuffle. I’ve still not felt like putting the whole thing on, but they always bang. ‘III’ just started playing now, and it’s ace.


#1836

#1838

UHHHH SO GOOD

the vocals are great, but it’s all about that instrumental. could listen to it for half an hour.


#1839

I’m sure your grandad’s housewarming is going to be a stormer, m7!

and I don’t know much about their live show, but yeah? sweet!


#1840

only just got on this today, for reasons.

best thing I’ve heard all year. want to cry. ahhhh wow.


#1841

Currently listening to Queen’s Greatest Hits II (not for any particular reason, just thought why teh feck not).

I instantly recognise Radio Ga Ga but I never actually knew Queen wrote this song, until now. How embarrassing.

Quite liking their 80s stuff tbh. Everyone says Queen weren’t good after A Night at the Opera/A Day at the Races, but I don’t believe that’s true (they just stopped making terrific albums).

‘Hard’ is my favourite Gang of Four album. The fact it sounds so much like a product of its time is why I like it. Then again I’m not really a big GoF fan, I’m guessing the hatred largely comes from some sort of purist post-punk fanbase.
I like Heaven 17 too.


#1843

Yeah most likely this ^! I’ve still not gone back to it but I didn’t really have any strong feelings on the album either way.

Only really familiar with The Luxury Gap & Penthouse and Pavement from Heaven 17’s catalogue, which record would recommend investigating next?


#1844

tbh I’m only familiar with this (seemingly obscure) compilation of 12" remixes (it’s a fun listen, available on Spotify). Haven’t heard their albums, but I think they’re meant to be the two most essential ones.

Crab Day is a fantastic album, had it on repeat the last few days.
