Axver, how are you coming on your CD exchange playlist?

Still not even 100% on the artists, heh. I cut The Bats since they're in my Dunedin Sound list. At the moment, I've got The Shadows, Solar Powered People, Chroma Key, and Anathema, but 3 of those 4 could be ditched (The Shadows, of course, stay).

I don't suppose there are any bands I've used in DI or otherwise mentioned that you'd like more of an intro to? I've had a hard time deciding what I want to use here.

I liked the single songs I've heard by God Is An Astronaut and The Verlaines.

Good luck with everything, Vazza.
It was pretty boring, and pretty hilarious as a u2.com video, but I do think the guitar at the beginning sounded promising and the constant symbols are a little different than the rest of the 00s.

Most other bands I follow would have only just got to the studio or wouldn't even be there yet for a November release!

I think the last couple of albums show U2 just don't have the passion for music any more. They are rock stars, not rock musicians. I have no faith in them to produce good music any more. I believe they COULD if they were still interested in music, but they aren't. Bono wants to save Africa, Larry's an idiot, Adam's got a foot in the grave, and Edge is on Mars.
Truer words, etc.

Watched the Late Late show interview they did in 1988 recently, and it was interesting to note that Bono thought it took too long to record JT. He thought four months was a ridiculous amount of time.

It's weird, the 80s Bono wasn't exactly the opposite of who he is now (and I'm perfectly aware that people change over 20 odd years), but he sure was a hell of a lot different. Or less lazy.

Probably phanan rather than I could do the best intro to God Is An Astronaut. I haven't actually checked out their latest album yet.

The Verlaines are in my Dunedin Sound disc. Beyond a few songs, I'm actually not that into them. Death And The Maiden and New Kind Of Hero own, though.

oooh i see this is the 2nd time i've missed a "bash u2 in secret so iq doesn't turn into a mess" talk. last time i argued with axver about it on aim, this time i'm gonna tear myself away.

but yeah, i'll be pissed if they can't put out an album after four years and with like a year's worth of work - weren't they working by this time last year? that is indeed lazy, distracted, uncommitted, or something.

maybe they should just quit with the new stuff and do a bunch of farewell tours where they play their whole catalogue

I look forward to your Dunedin Sound introduction. Have you put much thought into how you'll introduce people to modern prog? I have to say I am really stuck.

This aspect, I can't get over. Good fucking god, they're hacks. When they do occasionally get some sort of clip, it's Bono rambling about shit and forgetting the lyrics over the top of Wave Of Sorrow, or Larry fart-arsing around on some rather dull work.

The guitar that's briefly heard is honestly too insubstantial for me to even start to care.

Really?! Oh, that's too funny. He says that, then they go and take twenty years to put out six albums.

Yeah, back then he read a lot of creative stuff, gave interesting rants, could sing well, and wanted to make music. What the fuck happened?

They clearly enjoy playing live more than they like being in the studio. I think they need to break out of this mindset that you can't tour unless you have a new album to promote.

I have about 3 hours of music (21 tracks) sitting in a playlist that I need to sort. At this stage, it has far too much Porcupine Tree compared to everything else, but I'm not sure this is a bad thing.
