No Doubt,
I heard Gwen before No Doubt, she was part of the Long Beach punk/dub scene and did a couple of duets with one of my favourite bands Sublime

Tonight I shall be digging out my old Peter Green albums :cry:

I'm not a musician and so I can't comment on technique, nevertheless, I have recently taken to watching drum cam footage and some of them just mesmerize me.

I prefer bludgeon to finesse so I can watch clips like this one over and over again.

Yup...the whole LBC was pretty good back then. Sublime gets good airplay here...Garden Grove is a perennial...but without a sub and a well treated room, you'll never hear everything. I'm still hearing new stuff in that album as I put in more bass absorbers.

@ Dave - the lads in Alchemist I've known for a long time. I have lost count how many times I saw them live...and I consider myself fortunate to have both opened for them and headlined on a bill with them. Seek out Jar of Kingdom - that was the era I saw them do pubs and clubs in Canberra. Stunning live band. The best cover of Celtic Frosts 'Dethroned Emperor' I've seen/heard anywhere on the planet.

@ Andy....yeah...I think we had this discussion once before about musical alignment. I'll throw on some CorpseFlower and Lovage just for you.

Filter, Mother E

Used to love Filter. Albums, concerts - enjoyed all of it.

Then things changed; the band's style, my taste... Lost track of their work. Until this morning and am since enjoying some of the later stuff I've not yet heared.

Now I can't go about without a Beavis and Butthead headbang running through labs shouting MOTHER!

Started rowdy at 04:30 on the way to work
The Wedding present at volume followed by half man-half biscuit - Cammell Laird Social Club

I’m listening to the blissful sound of silence. The all-natural version, not the one by Simon & Garfunkel or Disturbed.

Ace, that's a name I've not heard in a while. Added that to Spotify to listen to soon.

I've been digging into some vinyl that's unloved for some time. Rediscovered some great techno

And acid house

Also been listening to lots of athletico mince at work

Like that album, I edited a section of a skydiving film to Aisha, a few years back, one of the other tracks I used was Pleasant Valley Sunday by the Monkeys :-bd Today’s selection from the same era was ‘When I was born for the seventh time’ by Cornershop, very good.

OK, how far back can we go :wink: . Forget E* P*, without Buddy would R&R ever have happened at all? 1959. Terrible loss. Possibly the earliest punk rock? :wink:

Viewing now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bkCZDB9r4V0 (Yes, I know it's Gary Busey but the atmosphere is electric :wink: “Hey, we weren’t expecting y’all either.” ). Check out the double-bass player HOTT :smile: .

Clicked on this with luke-warm interest as their sound became too clean for me years ago.

Turns out it's quite catchy and so I might have to listen to the full album when it lands.

Had to go back and have a listen to when they were murkier though.

I'm sure there's a reference to Peggy Sue in there somewhere.

Anal Nathrakh?? Well I gave it a try, might be an acquired taste but certainly worth a listen :smile: That was possibly even louder than Disaster Area :grin: .

I'm going with the "Tottenham Sound" now, and that's my lot tonight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSLi4pWxKEg. Sigh, I was born ten years too late.
