Holy filthy, screaming guitar solo orgy, Batman!

 

Parliament-Funkadelic is one of my all time favorite bands.  seen them live a ton of times.  one time they played till damn near 3am (starting at 10p) and House of Blues turned the power on the stage off on them so they'd finally stop.  They kept singing and finsihed the tune and then stopped.  it was awesome.  i love the FONK

Radiohead have teamed up with composer Hans Zimmer to work on the soundtrack to the BBC's forthcoming natural history series, Blue Planet II.

Inspired by the sounds of the sea, the band have recorded an orchestral version of the song Bloom, from their 2011 album The King Of Limbs.
Called (ocean) bloom, the piece will be featured in a five-minute prequel, released on 27 September.

It features new vocals from Thom Yorke alongside the BBC Concert Orchestra.

watching and listening you may have seen this doing the rounds but i think its fun.  nearly 5 mins long.

Very clever that Bill. Was just listen to these in the car driving home.

I always wonder what the great classical composers would make of music like this; I have "interesting" debates with my mother-in-law on the subject. She's a piano teacher (still doing it in her mid eighties) with a Bechstein grand piano in her front room, it was her 21st birthday present, and she completely despises any form of "popular" music. I keep trying to find something she'll like but it's impossible.

Has a lot of meaning to me this one as I've always sung it to my daughter and made it "our" song,  moreso looking morbidly as you do to the future 

Great band and vocals for which Holder never got the credit he deserved imo

Moving (first bit) and true (second bit) Paul. I'd completely forgotten about that song to be honest but it's lovely; mentioned many times before on here that they were the first band I saw live. I think the lack of credit they got was down to the image they portrayed; no doubt under orders from their record company.They were incredibly versatile, loved them.

Travelling Wilburys,

They must be the most talented collection of musicians who have ever recorded together.

 

"The Traveling Wilburys (sometimes shortened to the Wilburys) were a British-American supergroup consisting of Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, and Tom Petty. The band recorded two albums, the first in 1988 and the second in 1990, though Orbison died before the second was recorded."

Tom Petty has died, very sad.

Just bought a t-shirt with my favourite Neil Young album cover on the front:).

My favourite track on it (despite it containing the classic "Cortez the Killer")....

Considering the "leadership" of Britain and the US, this is a brilliant track

 

Well they're selling another messiah

Here tonight

But we're all way too numb and divided

To buy it

Singing no no no

We are all too divided this time (no no no)

Show me a leader that won't compromise

Show me a leader so hope never dies

We need a hero this time (no no no)

Disillusioned and tired of waiting

For the one

Whose intentions are pure unpersuaded

We can trust

Singing no no no

'Cause a promise is never enough (no no no)

Show me a leader that won't compromise

Show me a leader so hope never dies, we need a hero this time

I know, I know I know if we're to survive

We need to know this is not the end

How will we ever get by

It's getting harder to fight out here on our own

Show…

Athlete are a great band. 

I must investigate them further; that's the only track I've heard and that was due to this brilliant Doctor Who scene...

Not normally a Country music fan but I like this (also very clever where they get the line of vinyl to mimic the sound wave on an oscilloscope).

This is also at the top of my list; don't wish to appear an old arse and dis modern music.....but in all honesty mainstream nowadays is crap; the "top twenty" is a joke.

Rubes I didn't like that at all I'm afraid; Gillan sounds like he's at a karaoke party. I didn't watch much because I don't want to dilute memories.

Have to agree Mike not what I expected at all, but I listened to it so posted up the link.  Sad when your memories are torn apart though. :(

Have to say that Liam's new album is pretty damn good.

Can't abide the twat so won't be looking out for it. My lad reckons Noel's new one is very good though I've not heard any of it yet.

Funny how they release stuff weeks apart, it's like a "who's got the biggest dick" contest:lol:.

I agree, as a person he is a fail, but seriously the album is very very good, listen to paper crown - amazing lyrics.

He's a twat but it's his voice that I can't handle. I can listen to the odd song he provides vocals on but I have no idea how anyone can stand a full album :lol: 

Have to agree on this

After many years spent raising our six kids, my wife has recently been able to participate in more evening and weekend activities. A few months ago, she joined our church choir. On November 5, our church held an All Souls evening service - a remembrance of those who've died. The wonderful thing about the music (Mozart's Requiem) is that it was sung in the context of that service; it was not a concert. Here's the Dies Irae. At 14:00, the choir sings the well-known Confutatis and Lacrimosa. As a small church choir, they did a really good job.
