    Default The Music Chat Thread

    We have a thread to post music vids, we have a thread for vinyl and guitars, we have a thread for gigs, but we don't actually have a thread to gab about music itself (do we?).

    So here it is.

    Anyway, as from Aug 12th this year it will be the 30th anniversary of 6 incredible weeks for music released:


    *Aug 12th - Metallica, The Black Album

    *Aug 27th - Pearl Jam, Ten

    *Sep 17th 92 - Guns N Roses, Use Your Illusion 1 & 2

    *Sep 24th - Nirvana, Nevermind + Soundgarden, Bad Motorfinger + RHCP, Blood Sugar Sex Magic


    Purrit in your calendar. That is just a stunning amount of timeless, game-changing, top draw tunage released in such a short space of time.

    Has there been any other similar periods from other decades?

    The whole of 94?

    Parklife, Definitely Maybe, Dookie, Smash, Stranger than Fiction, Korn, Weezer, Grace, Ill Communication, Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged, Downward Spiral, The Holy Bible, Illmatic, Superunknown. There’s probably more! I listen to quite a few of those regularly.

    There has Alf relatively speaking, I’m sure when the Pixies released Doolittle there was a few other game changing albums around the same time, may have been the Happy Mondays or Stone Roses... can’t remember without research. Just remember it being a good time to be alive and having so much great new music.

    No it’s not mate.

    Music of our age, the stuff older guys saw released in the same few weeks or months would blow away some of the things we saw.

    1994?

    The first Weezer album (the blue one) featuring Buddy Holly; Johnny Cash‘s American Recordings; Pink Floyd‘s The Division Bell; The Prodigy‘s Music for the Jilted Generation; Sonic Youth‘s Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star; I’m sure there’s loads more.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    — Joe Strummer

    The music died in 1976.

    Or, 1959, if you’re Don McLean.

    Good shouts with '94, especially if you throw dance & the underground rave scene into the mix.

    Overall it's just incredible you used to get these little pockets of brilliance absolutely assaulting the world, and now you'll be lucky to get one good tune a year, never mind 6 or 7 killer albums in a few weeks!

    Not exactly sure of the span, but the amount of absolute dance classics in the 90s was ridiculous.

    Tracks like Rhythm is a Dancer, Push the Feelin on, I’m a Dreamer, Show me Love.... still bang today.

    From a personal point of view, I grew up in London in a weird little niche point in musical history when UK Garage went from underground to mainstream to nothing, all seemingly in the space of about 5 or 6 years - very strange. Like a bridge between 90s dance/dnb and pop-rap and eventually UK grime.

    That music always takes me back to when I was a teenager, either listening to pirate radio or out in clubs trying to get served.

    Aye, so much quality on so many levels of dance too. The commercial ones you mention just as brilliant as all the underground stuff like Technophobia & all the Twisted Vinyl labeled tracks etc. Between rock gigs & all that you were literally struggling to get one night off a week from going out it was so choca

    This generation's scenes have been so limp in comparison. Hope that the "lockdown rebound" sparks something into life, because society is desperate for it.

    As a fan of hip-hop, I can’t believe the state of UK urban music, specifically drill. Absolute toss, with zero lyrical flow or ability on show. I hope it takes a turn towards a more melodic/musical/dance avenue in the next few years because the current output is crap.

    That’s exactly what it is

    We should start a ‘Music Club’, like a book club but we pick an album, we all listen to it, then discuss what we like and don’t like about it. Take it in turns to pick an album. Nothing daft, like albums that are 2 hours long or got 30 tracks on or are super niche etc.

    That’s a pretty good idea. Always open to hearing stuff I’ve not heard before.

    Definitely up for that. I used to enjoy Back To Mine that Serenity Painted Death used to run, as well
