  1. Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy are the relentless and everlasting core. These guys were my lost soul of my late 80s period. They rock far louder, but this down tempo song really resonated with me. The gents player Lisner Auditorium if you can believe it. Brother Wolf and Sister Moon:
  2. My wife has been a fan of Glen Hansard for maybe the last half dozen years or so. My first impressions were that he was overwrought. A little too moody for me. Not inventive. Songs sounded too similar. Meh. But....I love my wife. And she's indulged me in my fascination with metal. And besides, I generally love Scottish and Irish music. I'm a huge Silly Wizard fan, for example. So when she suggested we see Glen Hansard at The Anthem, while I initially was not wild about it, I remembered these things and remembered that she's also turned me on to many bands and other performers that I loe dearly so, of course, we set the plans in motion. This concert was a week or two ago. It was GREAT. Tremendous performer and band. A storyteller. Inclusive. Infectious. And clearly I had been doing things wrong. Many songs, while unfamiliar to me absolutely were great. I need to listen to his stuff MORE LOUDLY. And some blew me away. Like this absolute gem. I think they stretched this to about 9 minutes. To say I was elated to see this performed by folks at the top of their game is an understatement.
  3. I accidentally got exposed to The Tragically Hip back in....the very early 1990s? I saw them play at a show at Hammerjack's as a part of, I think, an WHFS thing. 'New Orleans is Sinking' was the song that drew me in. I heard a few more songs over the years, but I never bought any of their albums or saw them play again, live. Then, a few years ago, my wife gets me a compilation of their work (Yer Favourites) and I love it! They are kind of rocking, kind of Canadia, kind of thoughtful, kind of twangy, kind of just good. "At the Hundredth Meridian" (1992) "Fifty Mission Cap" (1993) "Bobcageyon" (1999)
  4. I became a fan of this band after discovering them in the early 80s. I came close to seeing them play live in 1987, but then Fish left and there was drama. I think some of the lyrics are overwrought, and some of the music is not as great as 70s prog rock, but the sweet clean guitar is amazing. I have many favorites, but here is one sample - Jigsaw:
  5. Peter Murphy left Bauhaus and did his own thing. A friend gave me a listen. Went to see in in 86 or 87 at the old 930 Club (horribly distorted speakers and all) and he was great. A skeleton, but great. "Final Solution" (1986) "My Last Two Weeks" (1988) "The Sweetest Drop" (1992) Not as much a fan as I was back then, but still he did some interesting stuff.
  6. I've learned from these threads that our members are a very, very intelligent, diverse bunch with interest ranging from everything to homemade pasta, to birding, to architecture, and probably hundreds, if not thousands, of other topics, hobbies, and passions. I want to dedicate this Indie Rock / Alternative Rock thread to one of our greatest members, cheezepowder, and with both the 9:30 Club and Black Cat here in DC, not to mention brian's own U Street Music Hall, plus any number of clubs in the United States, I'm hoping it can spawn off other threads as well. "Jack of All Trades; Master of None" - we've all heard that phrase, and it describes me to a T - I know next to nothing about this genre of music, but I'm interested in learning, and I hope some of our masters will chime in and (indirectly) teach me.
  7. Ok, so I don't know what the fuck Yorke is singing about most of the time, and some of their music can get a little ponderous for my tastes, but damn these guys are good. I pretend I can play guitar and know a fair amount about rock and its common musical structures, but I don't have any idea how they write and perform this stuff. It's like they come from another planet. Radiohead - Austin City Limits 2012 (can someone tell me the name of the tune at the 13 minute mark?) The layering of sounds they put into a track can be hypnotic. The guitar work is stellar. And Yorke has one hell of a unique and wide-ranging voice. If they ever tour again, I'm there even though I've sworn off stadium shows. From a great height... Michael.
