What are you listening to?

A place to chat about anything thats not football related. Most of the threads in here are completely pointless which is why people keep coming back and back. As the forum title suggests, feel free to make any post you want on any subject you wish. It also has Adult jokes (so be warned) which is the other reason people keep coming back.

Martin Simpson & Andy Cutting at Wingfield Barns. I counted up. I have 21 Martin Simpson albums. Such a great guitarist.

Kelly Joe Phelps, just heard he died yesterday or today aged 62. Not sure his you describe him, folk-blues guitarist maybe.

Jorma Kaukonen, “Quah” from I think 1976. Guitarist with Jefferson Airplane, he made this acoustic masterpiece when they first split. Folky, almost ragtime, bluesy guitar.
Had a great afternoon at the footy, caught up with my eldest son and husband and the Greyhound, and also a lad I used to teach and his parents - known the family for years.
Home, cooked a prawn stir fry, eating outside while this music provides a relaxed but beautiful background. A relatively unknown gem. I remember it being released but never heard it until I picked it up on cd last year.

Sounds like a much (MUCH) better Bob Dylan, Andy. Quite enjoyed that. Was decent. 👍

I am listening to the Killers (Hot Fuss), had tickets for their concert in Amsterdam....but they changed the concert date. Couldn't make the new date, still enjoyed 2 nights in Amsterdam with friends though 👌

I saw the Killers about 8-9 years ago in Amsterdam. The Ziggodome, I think. Good gig. Haven't heard much of the The Killers lately, though. Hot Fuss is a bit of a classic early noughties albums. I wouldn't say the Killers are that dated - but there's still loads of older bands still touring. Must be because modern music is absolutely sh*te.

It’s more because there’s no money in recorded music any more. The only way to make money as a musician Is to play live.

Very good. I picked up their 3EPs and new album too. I’m a big fan of Martin Simpson, amazing guitarist. Never seen him play electric before though.

Ive come across them on YouTube, but I've only watched further because of the bass player's legs. She's gorgeous. Find them a bit samey.

Have to confess I don’t know them. I’ll YouTube them later. I’m afraid I’m stuck pretty much in the late 60s/early 70s, but enjoy a variety of music.

They're American, a three-piece indie band from Hoboken, New Jersey. They've been making studio albums since '96. I first came across them in '01 and they've slowly sort of crept into my brain since then so I now have a fair stash of their albums.

9 minutes……… might be too long for some. But if you get to around 1:30, it’ll grip your attention.
Really is very original in my opinion. Loved it. Nice message as well. 👍👍

Great stuff. Bought it on vinyl many years ago, got a CD copy too. The first 2 Jeff Beck albums with Rod Stewart on vocals were brilliant at the time.

Aye, not a Rod fan, too much coke and pink pants for my taste, but I do like him on those early Jeff Beck albums.

Another RIP too, old personal favourite fwiw
