No, don't answer, I don't actually want to know about how to go to the corner shop every morning to get your daily mail, mutter under your breath about how you don't like the Indian bloke behind the counter then sit in your lounge grumbling about children that ride past on their scooters.


Eh?

Now that is a pointless post. If you don't like mine you know what to do. There's an ignore button somewhere.

But I've probably done more with my life than most others. It's great to be judgemental about someone you don't even know. :rolleyes:


I just thought that Non Metal would include stuff that isn't remotely Metal or Rock N Roll. Yet even in the first few posts we are getting bands that are commonly seen as being Metal. There's a whole forum to discuss such things.

My next few gigs have a lot of non metal stuff in there:
Drive by Truckers (Southern Rock)
Moon Duo (space/psyche rock)
Earthlings? (psyche rock with members of Goatsnake and QOTSA)
Dave Hause (Punky Springsteen type)
My Sleeping Karma/Colour Haze (Psyche rock)
Tony Allen (Afrobeat)

I don't mind some jazz, but draw the line at the more experimental stuff - but the 50s/60s stuff like Wayne Shorter, Dexter Gordon, Joe Henderson, Miles Davis (even some of his electric stuff), even some of the jazz-rock stuff like Mahavishnu Orchestra.

I may have to check some of those guys out. I enjoyed the Miles Davis and Mahavishnu Orchestra tracks I heard.

My dislike of Jazz came from growing up in the 1970s when quite a lot of it was still getting played on primetime TV and radio.

I can appreciate that many of them were very talented musicians, but if I hear Cleo Laine ever again I think I'll scream. :ugh:

Oh sweet jesus no :lol: My Mum and Dad took me to see Cleo Laine and Johnny Dankworth when I was young - horrid stuff, all the rough edges taken out and safe enough to be a musical interlude on the Wogan show or a skit on Morcombe and Wise - as black as morris dancing :lol:

Funny I don't remember being scared of it as a kid and my parents played it all the time. When I say introduce him what I actually meant is I listen to it whilst he plays with his toys and ignores what I'm doing ha ha.

Dead Can Dance - best band ever. No one ever has and no one ever will create anything better than them two.
And by extension - Lisa's solo output (first 2) and Brendan's too (the only 2).

Nearly went to that but didn't bother in the end, like that band but find the vocals a bit bland and lifeless. As far as industrial/EBM goes, I'd rather listen to the more violent stuff like Suicide Commando, Leather Strip, Grendel, etc.

like Combichrist a lot too, but recently they've been trying too much to be a metal/rock band, and they were better when they just aggro-tech.

Ah I remember getting Within the realm of a dying son and The serpent's egg through tape trading in the mid nineties. Good times.

Yeah Ive been listening to all that stuff since Ultraviolence was releasing albums on Earache. They used to put on some fun gigs.

love love love them, one of the best bands I've ever seen live! Have you heard Farscape with Lisa and Klaus Schulze?
