What new music….
Back in time is good! Just put a load of Doors stuff on my playlist the other day, as it happens.
Some other good stuff that I’ve been in to of late;

I am currently a big fan of country music like Townes Van Zandt
I, too, am enjoying the Van Zandt, Tower Song especially.
Elsewhere, nobody told me Radiohead were a pretty damn good band. 👿
I take it OP that you’re already well into Alice in Chains (not mentioned above, but still holding up nicely in 2013). 8)Posted 4 years agobikebouyMember
Why go backwards ??
Why not try another Genre ?
Maybe because you were in the Rock world you let slip some other fantastic music, stuff maybe you dismissed out of hand because you were a “rocker”. There’s some most excellent House/Techno/Deep/industrial that could, for you, be worth seeking out. Don’t dismiss this as some sort of “change your view” monologue, but more of a pointer towards some kicking sounds that have a similar beat (heavy, rhythmical, loud etc..) and make your feet tap and your shoulders move.
I’m a massive fan of stuff in the rock but not much in recent years has impressed, the latest VanHalen album with DLR back was shite for instance…
Soundcloud is a great place to start, Oliver Schories/LukeVegas/Room84 for starters.. You may not like it, worth giving it an hour of investigation though Shirley…Posted 4 years agopeachosMember
Dizraeli and the Small Gods
These are my favourite at the moment. Discovered them at The Beat-Herder Festival. Excellent live, every member is massively talented & the lyrics are witty, humorous, inspiring and thought provoking.
This video is sooooo tight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_J6DdzzzU8
Loads of good stuff on their YouTube channel.Posted 4 years ago

God I used to fancy Hannah from S Club 7. That’s brought back some memories.
Rachael Stevens FTW.
@ BikeBouy – I didn’t mention it but I have a parallel for some commercial yet eclectic & crossover R&B, & hard rap/garage (LL cool J, Dizzee Rascal, Kano, Limpbizkit, Jay Z, Eminem, Sean Paul) pretty much anything with a hard beat, even some of Beyonce’s stuff, plus Reggea and soca beats courtesy of a west indian wife and many trips on the Carribean buses…Posted 4 years ago
… for a bloke that never grew out of Sabbath/GnR/Velvet Revolver/Nirvana or early to mid nineties rock n roll etc?
Never been into indie stuff such as the Kasabian era etc which left a number of years gap in my life, and I really need to invest in a new record collection….?Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Down with the kidz option- try “I was born I have lived I will surely die” by Young Guns. It’s all a bit Smash Hits with guitars but still, proper tune
Failing that, let’s have a mighty Converge/F***ed Up double whammy. Converge for fury, F***ed Up for tunes. And fury.Posted 4 years ago
Yes, I own a copy of The Big Roar and it sounds like a cross between the Delays and epileptic fit in a cymbal factory piped through a plastic tube and recorded with a D90 on the wrong bias setting- to my ears/neurons.
But, different strokes for different folks.
EDIT: I’d say this sums it up.Posted 4 years agoMaster Of NoneSubscriber
I had (And still have) similar taste in GnR, Nirvana etc. but have brached out a bit to milder indie music since meeting the wife (shes not a fan). Currently enjoying Daft Punk and a new found love of Basement Jaxx
For recent(ish) similar music, try “Them Crooked Vultures” – super group of Josh Homme, Dave Grohl and John Paul Jones. Not as good as you would hope but good ol’ bluesy rock. And while i mention Dave Grohl, after years of great singles and poor albums, the last Foo Fighters album “Wasting Light” is about the best they have done since “colour and the shape”.Posted 4 years agoprawnyMember
I’ve turned to teenage screamo now I’ve hit 30. A Day To Remember are one of my current favourites, but also i’m into folky stuff and still a lot of punk.
So my commute playlist normally consists of ADTR, Ben Howard, Killswitch Engage and Mumford and Sons. It’s a bi-polar train journey somedays.Posted 4 years ago
….but not a lot worse than The Joy Formidable, IMHO.
Clutch, OTOH, there’s a band.Posted 4 years ago
Heard of Clutch, never heard them. So, just had a run through a bunch of their tracks on YouTube. Well, I might well have done, but they’re pretty indistinguishable from many other southern rock/blues bands out there. I’d find them difficult to tell apart from The Jim Jones Review, TBH. Or ZZTop.
I kind of grew out of that thirty years ago. I don’t mind it, but there’s so little light and shade in so much of that headsdownnononsencemindlessboogie, I just can’t listen to too much of it.
