My husband now has a cd player in the car,what with two kids we never really get to listen to much music,except when in the car.The wallet is shared,we are currently driving along to the following.
Tim Finn-Imaginary Kingdom
Crowded House-Afterglow
Split Enz-Frenzy
Nanci Griffith-Little love Affairs.
K.T Tunstall-Eye to the telescope.So pleased she is Scottish as i love this album.
Hiliary Duff-6 year old daughters choice,not too bad.
Everything But The Girl.
Kylie-Greatest.
Just listening to The Doors Perception boxset, all the albums featuring Morrison remixed, they sound great. I didn't think the Strange Days album could sound better, but it does. Would have been the perfect opportunity to finally release the two albums after LA Woman recorded after Morrison's death on CD, but I guess the survivng Doors want to forget about them.
"Mellencamp at one time" Ken??? Its a good album, went to his site for a sniff too, loads of freebie vids to have a squizz at as well. Hopefully he'll tour downunder this year. Think it was last year he was just showing up round America. on street corners and in parks doing impromtu performances, HOW COOL !!

Camus didn't know the Doors had a remix. Have to have a wander in the record shop.

Ted Hawkins has been getting a bit of a bashing this week, (yes, located another cd of his) along with Tim's, Big Canoe, but sorry Tim keep flipping over to Feeding the God's and re-acquainting with Imaginary Kingdom.
15 days to go till Tim.

If you google Ted Hawkins and Billy Bragg in one line, should bring you up with a free download of a live song for a listen.

Only in the boxset of albums though. Some interesting variations, Break On Through for example has the full 'she get high lyric', rather than 'she get'. No profanity in The End though, he mustn't have said it in the studio.

Strange Days sounds a lot crisper and clearer now too. Morrison Hotel sounds like it was recorded yesterday.
Been listening to:

Blown To Smithereens (Best Of) - The Smithereens (one of the most underrated bands ever)
Glittering Prize - Simple Minds (hey, these guys were good in their heyday)
Complete Greatest Hits - The Cars (surprised to count up how many hits these guys had)
Tubular Bells - Mike Oldfield (remastered edition, a chillout classic if ever was one)
and still enthralled to
Love - The Beatles (anyone critical of this hasn't heard it or are just plain fools)
Supergrass, Best Of....cest funtastique! Oui?

Midlake, The Trials Of Vanoccupanther. Poor old Occy. More trials than a daytime soapie. Sounds good though.

& Peter, Bjorn & John. No, it's not Abba reformed, nor even an Abba tribute band. Just press play on the little window on the top right hand corner to find out more. It just goes snap, crackle & mostly Pop.

Time to get back to the Pod, before i'm missed.

Should have listened to all of this track before posting. I just went to the bit we all know "Father, I want to kill you, mother, I want to mwarghhhh" which is what he said in the studio version. It's still the same in the remix, but later on, more F words than you can count Smiler

Nice choice Seany, was a big fan when the first album came out, loved the second album (Richard III is a great rumbler of a track) then drifted away. I only know songs from I Should Coco and In It For The Money.

The Doors - The Soft Parade a truly under rated album. I'd rank it as my second favourite Doors album after Strange Days. Wishful Sinful and The Soft Parade are killer tracks. I love all those little vocal bits in The Soft Parade (like 'The monk bought lunch', all that stuff about whipping the horse's eyes, and the bit where Morrison seems to be talking to himself, presumably from different vocal takes he was hearing).

Freaky this talk of the Doors, this week, had 3 unsuspecting encounters with them. 2 on Foxtel, on Biography channel an old documentary with the members, the late 70's I'd say. Next was Dead Famous, looking for Jim's spirit, so trekking to all the places he used to live or frequent in the states, including some of his old abodes. Best bit was the photographer saying how they got the pics of Morrison Hotel. And seeing the rest of the pics from that shoot.
Then next link onto Mr Sheldon's pics of Riders on the Storm, some damn fine pics from the tour in the last year or 2 ?

All this chat, and might have the hub talked into getting that boxed set.

Did you listen to an American Poet? That was great, pick your mood too, but alas, another tape that was lent and didn't come back.

Telling a fellow fan at work about the new boxset of which you talked Camus, but he's still got all his original album copies that came to the radio stations back in the late 60s early 70's, the radio programming wouldn't play them, so his mate used to off load the albums to him. Wink

Only music been listening to are Jimmy Barne's daughters through My Space. EJ has a fantastic voice. Not so into Mahalia's bluesy stuff.

Richard III is a great song. Not sure what has happened to the Supergrass. Their last album was called "The Road To Rouen", so i'm not sure if that means it's their last one, or that they've relocated to France to follow in the footsteps of the Stones & record in some old Challet avec frommage. Although their song "Caught By The Fuzz" always brings a smile to my face.

The Doors of perception. The only song by Aldous Huxley's name sakes i can listen to these days is Riders On The Storm, thanks to a flat-mate whome i used to share lodgings with in days of yore. He owned only 2 albums. L.A. Woman by The Doors, & Raw Power by Iggy Pop. These were played on repeat, over, & over, & over again. Even now, when i hear the word L.A. or woman used in a casual context, or in random conversation, i break out into a cold shudder of panic. The counciling is helping, although i never had any issues with Iggy. Strange Days really. Still, "ride the sky, people".
I am glad that The Doors have been given a digital dust-off, & the propper Box Set treatment. Perhapse after the therapy, i may be able to sit down & enjoy the revamped Doors without feeling like the main character from A Clockwork Orange. Eeker

I've been listening to that "new big thing" band, The View. They are apparently the new Arctic Monkey's, who were the new Franz Ferdinand, who were really the new Kinks (but weren't really). They aren't too bad, but i do think they sound like "George Formby goes electric & sings Chas & Dave.". Or is that a bit cruel.
Yes, i'm affrad so. Clearly the Origins of the First World War, have caused sonic reprocussions, that are still being experienced today. If only the Prussian Prime Minister had taken on board what Napoleon III had suggested (ie- peace!), we may be listening to something completely different.

If only Ferdinand had told his driver to "better take the scenic route today driver", he would have foiled the plot by The Black Hand, & thus gone on to become the much ignored 3rd heir to the throne that he (quite rightly) was. But sadly, it was not to be. & thus we have bands like The Subterranean Marmosets, Chiefs of Keiser & The Prussian Alliance! Eeker I always thought Kieser Wilhelm was a great name for an Heavy Metal band. Sadly, The Scorpions beat me to it. My own musical projet, Churchill's Kangaroo, has little or nothing to do with historical personages, or mammals of any kind. Which you would understand, if you could hear our unreleased debut album "What's That Skip?", which according to the rejection letters from all the major record companies, & i quote, "didn't sound "Cold" or "Monkey" enough".

I say let's forget the past, (& the First World War), & move forward to the future.
Alas Folkloric -Jim Moginie
The lead guitarist of Midnight Oil and co-writer of some songs on TWT such as Loose Tounge, and ALMOST CH member. A balance of rocky songs like All Around The World (featuring Martin Rotsey and Rob Hirst, also from Midnight Oil) and slower, softer numbers like Hey Little Dove and Let The Hurricane Blow. I'd describe it as Midnight Oil mellowed slightly, there are also very subtle elements of TWT
