On a side note, I would love to see someone write an in-depth article, or better yet a book about reconciling their love for hip-hop and hip-hop culture with their liberalism. 

Chris Rock had a pretty good bit about how he found rap these days to be much more difficult to defend intellectually than when it started.

From a side project of Serj Tankian (lead singer of System of a Down), called Serart, they only did one album, but it was pretty sweet.

Here's another Finnish band from me, but these guys are just crazy, basically it sounds like most of their music was written to Vodka. Leningrad Cowboys.

Their purposefully off key and drunken cover of Celine Dion's 'My heart will go on'



Oh and Wash Your Ass ;)



Oh go on, another. Ghostbusters (just cos it looks so much fun)

Although I can overall agree with the rhetoric about defending nowadays rap intellectually, but there are times where I prefer the silly over-the-top, what did I just listen to rap songs occasionally. So, even though some songs are ridiculous, cheesy, silly, and stupid, that is precisely why they are so entertaining and funny. Speaking of these kinds of raps, I'm obsessed with this song strangely enough for some reason:

This song is only 69 cents on iTunes.  I don't know why I'm addicted to it, but I saw it on the Google ad and can't get enough of it.

I'm here every now and again.

Ayo, one of my favorite memories is when I ordered this record, along with two other J-Zone records.  It came the same day that me and my mom had to go across town for some reason.  So my moms was like "let's listen to one of your new CDs."  I knew what was going to be on the record since I knew what kind of artist J-Zone was and so I was strongly against it.  But she insisted.



The funniest thing about that whole exchange and that car ride was that she thought dude was hilarious.  She specifically liked the line "the only dough I show will get them Boardwalk, so pass go."  Most awkward part of that ride was when the track came on that has a lengthy and detailed description of receiving fellatio.  I kind of mark this as one of the first moments where I began to interact with my parents as an adult.  Up to that point, I remember my moms being super prudish.  But then after I came to inherit fucking Blowfly records.

Also,

@screwtape: I'm talking about rap in general not just new rap like Chris Rock was talking about.  Rap is a young man's game and so not surprisingly there's a lot of it that espouses a not so enlightened view on women, relationships, homosexuals, etc.

@kin hell:  That King Crimson album is hard as fuck.  The title track is serious.

so glad you liked it bloke

I wagged school on the day KC's album "Starless and Bible Black" (1974) was to arrive in Tasmania
I bought the first album as they unpacked it, and ran the 12 or so blocks back to a mates place where we cranked it hard through his older brother's stereo

It did my head in





and finished with this track

for sheer ambushing raw power and ramping intensity I've still (to this day) heard nothing better



I was a mad gibbering fool   
empowered and gormless grinning at life
surf, wine, women and song

and what potent song it was/is
I never really went back to school from that day.








this album and "larks tongues in aspic" are intense listening and I still after all these years  play them every few months or so

Spent the morning listening to a lot of Saxon...I know I've posted Saxon before, so I'm not sure which to pick. Why not have Denim and Leather this time?

Bill Bruford is a great drummer. The first five Yes albums were great because of him, then he joined KC and got better.

Sometimes I think I exist on the fringes of cultural illiteracy.  In the past few years, I have been introduced to more musicians via children’s programming than any other source. 

In spite of the fact that I am (shamefully) a ticketholder to an upcoming (sold out) Fresh Beat Band concert, I have to say that I have discovered a few really good musicians via kids shows. 

Seriously. 

Any parents of little ones out there watch “Jack’s Big Music Show?” 

I saw this video, and thought damn.  This is not your average “children’s music.”



So I googled the Andrew Bird, and I am really hooked.  His lyrics are smart and weird and laced with references to global warming and natural selection and the apocalypse.  And his music wanders in and out of a wide range or genres as if he is on some cerebral journey through time and space. 




Now I swear I am not making this up.  I was watching this video, and my daughter came over and said “I know that guy” and ran away.  Given that I had discovered him on one of her tv programs, I was not surprised.  But she ran and got the old, hardcover copy of Cosmos by Carl Sagan (which was blasphemously being used to weight down a piece of her art that had gotten wrinkled in her backpack), and pointed to the back cover.



Another musician I discovered on Jack’s Big Music Show is Cathy Richardson.  Here she is with the puppets.



And here she is covering Grace Slick with Jefferson Starship.  And playing Janis Joplin on Broadway and covering Janis with Big Brother and the Holding Company.  Damn.  This woman has a complex voice! 





Even though I discovered her on a kid’s tv show, it turns out she is a lesbian icon and activist, who (I imagine) broke a lot of lesbian hearts when she got married a few years  back.   

So even if I am so old and out of it that I need to find new musicians via children’s tv programming, (and this thread), I’m quite impressed with some of what I’ve found.
