Tonight I am mostly listening to…

Listening to some forgotten gems doesn't half make you realise how gash the majority of music is nowadays.
yeah, if all you bother to listen to is daytime Radio 1 or crap commercial stations. If, on the other hand, you're prepared to actually invest some time and effort in looking further afield than the record rack in Tescos, then you'll discover more fantastic music than you could possibly find time to listen to.Posted 8 years ago
But then you'll have no reason to sit there whining like some old grandad that “all music's crap nowadays, it ain't like itwas in my day, yada yada yada…"
I've put long lists of really good artist in posts on here recently, which have had responses like “are these names real or made up?". Buy The Word magazine and listen to the sample cd, listen to Lauren Lavern and Cerys Matthews on 6Music; they play a fantastic range of great music. Just don't snivel that there's no good music when there quite clearly is.
Oh, and at the moment I'm listening to A Camp, (Nina Persson of The Cardigans side project), then I may be listening to Kris Delmhorst, or The Duckworth Lewis Method, or possibly Tokyo Police Club, or maybe Low Anthem, or Joan As Police Woman, or The New Pornographers, or Gemma Hayes, or Andrew Bird, or Lisa Hannigan, or Stars, or XTC, or…
I dunno, I've got a couple of hundred cd's close by, I'll just see how the mood takes me.stevenmenmuirSubscriber
Goan didn't say all music was crap and to be fair if you listen to most radio stations most of the time then most of it is crap. I like what Maconie and Radcliffe play on their show, good mix of old and new. In the last year I've really like Leisure Society and Teitur which I discovered on said show. Jools Holland also good for discovering new stuff like Imelda May and VV Brown and going back further Seasick Steve. Listening to rage Against the machine just now for what its worth.Posted 8 years ago
