I like that album, even though I don't really consider it a Go-Betweens album, as such. Oceans Apart is probably my favourite of the comeback albums. The Statue is one of their most beautiful post-classic era songs. (once you get past the weird drum machine effect at the beginning)

Truly astonishing band.

I can dig that! Now I can hate metal wholeheartedly! :D



No, the problem is they picked up instruments in the first place.

Metallica is music for idiots. Are you guys idiots? Is that what you're sayin'?


dickishness everywhere

you can tell me that your opinions are getting in the way of your ears?

iíve never been a metallica fan, but if you made a polite attempt to listen (for a moment anyway) you could realize that there are many great elements in their music, even if one canít stomach the overall package.

Just do what I do and pretend that they all died in that accident that took Cliff.
That pretty much leaves the vast majority of the good stuff. It also works for Pink Floyd if you pretend there was a plane crash in 1972 and they never made Dark Side of the Moon and everything after that.
Also, even if you hate metal, go on YouTube and listen to the Agents of Misfortune recordings that Cliff did when he was younger. It's a live recording in a talent show of some kind and if you blindfolded someone and told them it was Fushitsusha they would probably believe you. Seriously. Do it now.

Anyway I’ve been listening to “To Pimp a Butterfly” a bunch because I finally bought a physical copy of the album, so it’s been spinning.

Great fucking album, obviously.

Someone mentioned Agents of Misfortune to me in relation to the whole Ascension thing, but until youtube I had no way of hearing them. The similarities, especially live, are genuinely uncanny.

More generally, I'd say Metal's been the only area of Rock music that has really evolved in any meaningful way in decades. I'm struggling to think of anything really new or interesting to have come out of the indie/alt rock scene since, christ, i dunno, Twin Infinitives? And that was nearly 30 years ago!!

yes, as energies get pared down to their most essential and rock as a popular art form retreats into historical space. rockís last stand. after that it will all be nostalgia.

demonrail666 11.13.2018 10:48 AM

Yeah, although I'm sure I was wrong about the dates. Surely there must've been some innovation since 1990. I dunno. I'm not a fan but I suppose there's an argument for Radiohead - even if I wouldn't wanna be the one trying to make it.
