Been listening to a bit of Led Zep lately Very Happy plus the new Gorillaz album is fantastic, Albarn is a genius at fusing different music together

I like everything on Will B's list and most of Kev's. I dont think I've ever heard Mountain before - any well known tracks?

Pink Floyd pig are top of my tree too. Best gig I've ever been to was the Momentary Lapse of Reason tour, I saw them at Man City's ground at Maine Road on 8/8/88 - mindblowing lightshow and sound system. Kev's choice of Echoes is up there among my favourites, but the best has to be Childhoods End on the Obscured by Clouds album.

Other favourites of mine are:


The Proclaimers Bagpiper
The Waterboys
The Jam
Happy Mondays
Charlatans
Morcheeba
Gorillaz
Kosheen
Mattafix
The Clash
Tom Waits
Sinead O'Connor
Peter Gabriel
Kate Bush
Primal Scream
Stone Roses
Ian Brown
Oasis
Paul Weller
Macy Gray
Stevie Wonder
The Temptations
Janis Joplin
Simon & Garfunkel
Ted Hawkins
Air
The Orb
Coldplay
Florence and the Machine
Old School hip-hop (NWA, public enemy, Ice T, Ice Cube, KRS1, BDP,Biz Markie...etc)
underground Techno / House from '88 - '95
endless amounts of Reggae

and lots, lots more..............

I wouldn't mind betting you have heard Mountain but didn't know it. Lesley Wests riff from "Nantucket Sleighride" was used as the theme to 70s current affairs show, Weekend World, hosted by Peter Jay. And the live version of that track is Mountain at their absolute best.

Their front man Felix Pappalardi was a producer of Cream.

The theme starts (abruptly, don't you just love those ancient TV standards) 21 seconds in on this clip.



I went to see the reformed band a couple of years ago and though Lesley West is now half the man he used to be, he can still play that guitar!

I saw Mountain live at St John's University (NYC) in the early 1970s...I tried starting my car afterwards several times before I realized it had already started...a bit loud. My fever of 103F probably didn't help!

I listen to some POGUES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Great for bonsai work and soaking up the nectar.... Also like a lot of Faith No More, hoping for a new album from them, and just some Waylon Jennings. What a mix?

Rum, sodomy and the lash....that takes me back. Saw the Pogues twice. First time they were superb, second time, Shane McGowan was so drunk he "sang" on his back.

I prefer The dubliners over the Pogues myself.
Ive seen them live a few times. The dubliners that is. Yesterday I was at a local folk music fest, where John Sheahan were attending, amongst about 70 other musicians.
I sat just a metre away from him and watched him play. A great place to be if you like folk music from several places.

I'd have to agree with the FLoyd fans thought i lean more toward Gilmoure than Waters id also ad Tom Waits, Béla Fleck & the Flecktones, Jeronimo (Flamenco Guitarist) Liszt, Chopin & Brahms and if you dnt know him i'd recomend looking up Yann Tiersen and his work with Moissec.

I just got high on what seems to be a reference to me, Django Rheinardt.

I'm sure this sound in my ears will keep me away from awarrd-winning practise, and -hawwww!- I'm on holiday now ! cheers



I wish I had the talent...

This is the kind of music that mùakes me high. Titi Robin is French, like 95 % of the "gens du voyage".

Hard time for the travellers here in France at the moment...

Yes! Arvo Pärt for sure. But actually, in my greenhouse the only music is rain on the roof and bird song, which suits me just fine.

Post  kevin stoeveken on Fri Jun 13, 2014 3:14 pm

WOW WOW WOW... i can not believe the number of responses that contain "heavy" music...
things like motorhead, sabbath, the clash (sandanista excepted), pogues, etc...

i LOVE heavy music and sang in a punk band from 81' - 88',
but not for working on trees...
for me, music with an edge is for skateboarding (started in the seventies and still skate),
driving, pre-surf, pre-snowboard, or any other time i need to get AMPED  Twisted Evil 

and for that i dig THE CLASH (the only band that matters), the dead kennedys, germs, nugent (up until he started swinging out on stage on a rope wearing a loin cloth  Rolling Eyes ), ASTRONAUTALIS (this guy is incredible), buck 65, EELS and the list goes on...

uncategorical ?
one of my all time faves: the fall

and i wont even get into, old rocksteady, 70s blaxploitation, funk, 1950s rockabilly, brazillian, cuban, caribbean, afropop, etc, etc, etc

but for working on trees... ?

i named a playlist on my zune "chill pop"
with groups like:
cars and trains
blind pilot (absolute fav in this category)
iron and wine
the album leaf
father john misty
thievery corporation
motopony
cowboy junkies
postal service
the shins (nka: the shin  Suspect )

and one called "electro chill"
with more ambient-ish type things like:
eno
fennesz
bill laswell
beach house
peace orchestra
the album leaf
dub

and lastly my "singer-songwriter" playlist:
with everyone from johnny cash to jack johnson
and janis joplin to meiko
with some standouts being:
paulo nutini (if you are reading this fiona, he's a fellow scot)
william fitzsimmons
todd snider
bill callahan
roy orbison
simon and garfunkel
amos lee

damn... gotta stop somewhere and this is as good of a time as any...
