Never heard them before today but Margot's single Coffee Stained Cars has been on repeat.

A lovely slice of dream pop meets The SMIFFS with echoes of Bradford's Skin Storm.

I decided to check out this Jandek fella, why now I don't know.

A previous thread on here made it sound like it'd be a mixture of Daniel Johnston and a three year old throwing a guitar down the stairs while a dog howls.

Okay some of it is a bit like that but some really is good. This is lovely

Men Without Hats - I Got The Message

Listening to The Safety Dance led me to this, the single which followed it.  It reminds me of Devo's That's Good, which I think was released later in the same year.  I find it very catchy; perhaps I should listen to the rest of Rhythm of Youth.

It's wonderful. when I was about twenty I paid what was then a lot of cash for an import of the Midnight Cowboy soundtrack, just to have that two beautiful minutes available for me to play whenever I wanted.

It's wonderful. when I was about twenty I paid what was then a lot of cash for an import of the Midnight Cowboy soundtrack, just to have that two beautiful minutes available for me to play whenever I wanted.

It might be my favourite ever soundtrack. 'Florida Fantasy' is of course one of the most charming 2 minutes of music ever created, then you've got the title theme which is too sad and beautiful for words, 'Everybody's Talking', the groovy psych stuff - it's just amazing.

I listened to an album 5 times in a row on Sunday (if that's not deviating from the thread's premise too heavily): Dusty Springfield's See All Her Faces. Despite thinking myself a fan of her work, I've never really explored beyond the imperious Dusty in Memphis and her brilliant A&B-Sides Collection.

See All Her Faces is fucking amazing though. It's very diverse as it's made up of sessions with various producers, recorded over several years on both sides of the Atlantic (no pun intended), but the quality of songwriting, arrangements and, of course, Dusty's performances is as consistently high as her best work. I'm looking into the record's background more as it seems to be a bit of a lost classic. Seems it was sonly briefly issued on CD by Rhino in 2002.

Check out this version of Betty Wright's 'Girls Can't Do What Guys Do'. She somehow improves on the original, giving it a loping, Shuggie Otis-esque vibe.

And there's brilliant light and shade throughout, from the heavy country-funk of Crumbs Off The Table to the sweet bossa nova of Come For a Dream.

Think I'll listen to the whole thing 5 times in a row again now.

I don't know what you call this music. Shoegaze? Anyway, they're called Picastro and they're from Toronto, and this song keeps getting better.

A few Bonzos songs, as I remember dancing about the bedroom of our family friends' eldest son, when I was about 12 to the Trouser Press. Ah, memories.

Trouser Press, Humanoid Boogie and I was just laughing away to Big Shot.

I studied the swell of her enormous boobs and said
"Baby, you're so far ahead it's beautiful"

What could I say to my wife? "Darling I've been beaten up again"?
Let's face it, she's credulous as hell.

Superb.

Agreed. I listened to that over and over again just recently. Devo are definitely artists "you've always meant to give a listen but have never got round to"

Is this my fault for starting a thread on going to see a Devo tribute band? I'd love to apologise but I like them too.

Tynal Tywyll - Telyn Wedi Torri

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4AHLIoeziw

Absolutely obsessed with this song, and have been for about a year.  Someone on this website referred very briefly to the band as a "welsh lloyd cole and the commotions", when talking about how there were a few Welsh knockoff versions of bands kicking around.  Even though it felt like the description was far from a compliment, I was suitably intrigued as a LC&TC fan.  Don't think the rest of their stuff is much cop, but I think Telyn Wedi Torri is an absolute banger.  Adorable lil video filmed in portmeirion as well.

The Moon Exalted from Damon Albarn's opera, Dr Dee. It starts with classical (I think) singing, and that bit is good, but later on is added African/Middle Eastern instrumentation and some of that extraordinary sad beauty that Albarn seems able to summon up at will. He can make the world stand still for me.

It's an odd album, and aside from this track it really is best listened to as a whole album to help you get inside it, but I like it and it's growing on me.

I bought the Rolling Blackouts CF album when it came out last year but only gave it a quick listen and it didn't really appeal. For some reason I gave it another go earlier this week and I'm so hooked. Mainland's been buzzing through my head since Monday.

Hey that was me! :)

Just like Tynal Tywyll were the Welsh Lloyd Cole and the Commotions, we had our own Welsh language Depeche Mode knockoff in the early 90's

Ail Gyfnod - Llofruddwyr (Murderers)

Even though it felt like the description was far from a compliment, 

No, no - high praise!

Quote
I was suitably intrigued as a LC&TC fan.

I'm from the opposite end of the pipe here - being a Tynal Tywyll fan years before hearing any Lloyd Cole
Infact, as far as I know, that description is mine alone - they were usually compared to The Smiths - due to jangliness, but once I heard 'Perfect Skin' the scales fell from my ears and the true inspiration was deduced!

Quote
Don't think the rest of their stuff is much cop, but I think Telyn Wedi Torri is an absolute banger.

It's their best tune in my view, and still gets regular spins on Radio Cymru, alongside many others.
Their most 'famous' one is probably 73 Heb Flares from 1986. Here's a youtube page with more of their stuff.

Their lyrics are particularly dense and enjoyable - and as I can't find them online, I'll have to do it myself manually *

Quote from: Tîn Traddodiadol Cymraeg
Mae'r Telyn Wedi Torri / The Harp is Broken
Dwi'n meddwl fod y Byd yn troi o gwmpas fi o hyd, ac mae o'n wir / I think the World revolves around me always, and it's true
Ond cyn bo hir / But before long
Rhwyga fi, torra fi, a gadael fi nawr / Rip me, break me, and leave me now
Fel hen recordiau'r saithdegau ail-llaw / like old second-hand seventies records
'Steddfod, Eisteddfod / Eisteddfod (you know - the traditional festival of Poetry, music, and getting hammered on cider listening to Hanner Pei in Maes B)
Y diod a'r genethod / The drink and the girls (or possibly : Geneth od - 'odd girl' )
Pawb yn edrych am wraig / Everyone looking for a wife
Yn trachwantu'n chwil-gaib / Drunkenly lusting ('chwil-gaib' is literally drunk/dizzy as a pickaxe = REALLY drunk!)
Ar y tinnau traddodiadol Cymraeg / at the traditional Welsh arses

and skipping to the end for the punchline :

Ond allwn ni ddim chwarae cerdd-dant, sori / But we can't play cerdd-dant, sorry #
Am fod y Telyn Wedi Torri / because the harp is broken

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
# ('cerdd dant' sounds like it's 'tooth music' dant=tooth, but it's actually 'tant' where the 't' is modified to 'd' by the rules of treiglo. Tant is an individual string from the harp - plural : tannau.

Basically, the harp plays one tune, while the singer sings a countermelody - one person doing this is like rubbing your stomach while patting your head! Here's Ryan Davies doing just that)


You get the general idea.

I liked the phrase 'drunk as a pickaxe' so put the line into google translate and got 'In a snail greed'. Are you jerking me around? Or is google?
