^ No waste, Sam, it was fun!  I appreciate the reminder to try old albums again.

But your comment, are you referring to his son's death?  Or the bad car crash?  Because I think the car wreck was actually during the Presence sessions.  I remember reading about Plant singing from a wheelchair on Presence.  Although I suppose the accident effects could have lasted all the way to Out Door too.

In my little universe, LZ concluded their career with the glorious "Presence." 

Not that I didn't go see The Firm when I was a teenagerLOL.  It mostly sucked, but I was about 3rd row center with a pretty girl on my arm, so I wasn't complaining that night. 
Sorry for wasting your time LOL I started respecting the album a bit more after reading the story behind it, I'm sure Plant needed this distraction after the accident. At least it's not bad because they sold out, it's a more honest failure.

I only heard a couple of songs from The Firm and let's say I didn't feel like exploring more Tongue That seems like a nice evening though Smile


Yesterday:
Astrodome - II
Superfjord - All Will Be Golden
UFO Över Lappland - s/t
Emily Remler Quartet ‎– Take Two

First listen to White Blood Cells. Very very solid album.

Funny you should mention the Minutemen show I went to. I actually had tried to get a date to that show. REM were the headliners (Fables tour) and they were one of my favorite new bands. I really liked this girl at school and asked her to the show but she couldn’t go (school night, yeah). So I went with my dad. He kind of liked REM too so it wasn’t that out of the blue. But the Minutemen opening? That was a head scratcher. But I was intrigued and immediately bought their albums after the show. Soon they were my favorite band.

Well, while I  was stuck at the Firm show, you were probably watching D Boon and Mike Watt tear it up, so you got the better end of the music deal!  Therefore....I get the date LOL.  The other thing I remember about the show is getting knocked on  my arse by a big guy in front who was a bit out of control.  My date had to rescue me off the floor.  Jimmy played a very long White Summer seated at the front of the stage, playing that black and white guitar. 

White Blood Cells!  Love several tracks on that one.

Jim’s rockin’ the Firm today. I have nice memories of the Firm too, None of them involve women though, unfortunately.
I got the 45 of Radioactive because I loved the b-side ballad “Together”. I taped the whole album off my friend’s copy. Nowadays, I have both of the complete albums on LP. Still nice for occasional listening.

As for the LZ album ITtOD, I fall on the “pro” side. Though I do laugh upon remembering someone on another forum referring to it as “Outhouse”.

Today:

Magma | s/t
Negativland | Points
Karlheinz Stockhausen | Hymnen
Ty Segall | Freedom’s Goblin
White Stripes | White Blood Cells

For me it's more likely I'll stop enjoying one album. Sometimes even if you still have the same opinion you can expose it in a different way. By the way, do you still hate "In Through The Out Door" with passion? Tongue I always find it a good listen, maybe because I'm a big fan of JPJ and he has the spotlight on that one.

Also inadvertently funny some times and I just have to laugh at it. Walking around like John Cleese has also garnered quite a few laughs at work.

Mr Dunes didn't catch on right away...until it dawned on me that I was listening to his music on waaaaaaaay too low of a volume. I cranked it up and there it was! Zing.
Funny though because that usually only happens when I buy old or used cd's.
Also works the other way y'know when you put on an album, just like any old time, but here you experience the sensation of standing behind a speeding jet engine screaming in your face. Complete destruction. The 1997 remaster of Raw Power will certainly do that to a person who just finished this Amen Dunes album fx.


And it is those older recordings that I love most .Wink

Really they have the best fidelity to me .far less compression. 
I was listening to midnight oil's deisil and dust (1988) today and then put on the prodigy's'' the fat of the land" and that volume knob I just about had to do a 180 with. LOL 
I appreciate the differences just like our opinions on solid state amplifiers .Wink

Feel better Mr. Clease and pick up those headphones ya hooligan. LOL


Thanks Nick

The first two Prodigy albums are by far my faves...but not because of the fidelity rather the sounds and feel of them. I think of those albums as electronic dance punk - especially Music For The Jilted oozes this anarchistic stiff middlefinger to 'the man'.

I stayed home frome work today. My back sounds like a soda, seriously. Very sparkling and noisy.
Lots of time for music though:
Art Zoyd - Symphonie pour le jour où brûleront les cités
Gösta Berlings Saga - Ex Et
Fläsket Brinner - Fläsket
Funkadelic - Free Your Mind And Your Ass Will Follow

The prodigy will always have their place with me. Love music for a jilted generation .
Absolutely badass. Wink

Rest up nice in that fancy barka lounger .LOL
Give those 400i's a nice workout. Tongue

Hope your back recovers soon, David. I’ve been pretty lucky so far with mine but I did have one scary episode with my cervical spine that was excruciating. So I had ave an idea of what you must be going through. Hopefully the music helped. Cool that you’re into Amen Dunes now. Nice stuff.

Thanks man, in fact you guys are all awfully sweet. Well it will get better once I get over the 40 minute busride home I still have huge difficulties with my balance. Not looking forward to it but afterwards I'm starting up an evening with music, headphones, buddha and a nice comfy sofa Hepcat genuinely sounds like something that'd fit the evening beautifully...never heard of em before though.

Today up until now has been a bit weird but I guess it's just an exceedingly grey sunday that I tried to paint in a little colour. Denmark will be overwhelmingly grey for the next 3-4 months.
