Random Music Talk CXXVII: Crickets

And no not Buddy Holly's band.

Last RMT thread took close to a year to reach 1,000...this one might take a decade...

Carry on.

I saw that 1,000 was approaching the other day, and all I could think of was calling it "Is This Thing On?".

This week has been active, at least.

Thank you for getting to it before Cobbler did.

I forgot here, but for those of you lucky enough to have me on Facebook, definitely worth looking at the video I posted yesterday.

Folks, I took one for the team and you most certainly do NOT want to watch that video.

I'd like to rebut that and say that you should watch it.

WTF did they open with Sonnet and not Rolling People? That's lame.

I feel very, very lucky to have seen The Verve on this tour in a small club, was probably like 15 feet from the stage. And Rolling People KILLED, Ashcroft performed like he was in a trance, and he was moving around a lot more than he is in this vid getting up in the crowd's faces Bono-style. Legit transcendent. And I remember he was barefoot too, but he's probably known for that.

I've seen The Charlatans with Pete Salisbury on drums which is most likely the closest I'll ever get to seeing The Verve live lmao

The newest Grimes song is probably my favorite from this album cycle so far.

Sadly had no luck pitching an article on Romance is Boring's 10th anniversary, but I eagerly await its arrival in my mailbox. The last two nights they've played mammoth anniversary shows, the first night Romance is Boring in full and then a further 14 songs, before the show got cut shot as Gareth's depression is acting up, the poor dude. Last night RIB in full, then another 15 songs, then a three-song encore.

What I fucking would have given to have been there. I should have fucking gone man. Fuck. All of my Rushmore (In Medias Res / I Just Sighed / Cemetery Gaits / We Are Beautiful.

I fall more deeply in love with This Is How You Smile every day. What an absolutely beautiful, remarkable record.

New Purity Ring song is nice. Not any kind of departure or anything but that's cool. I like this group, haven't listened to them in a couple years.

Also, the two new Strokes songs are great, especially "At The Door". The synth intro is my favorite music moment of 2020 so far.

"Bad Decisions" is insanely catchy. It completely and openly borrows the chorus melody from Billy Idol's "Dancing With Myself" which is a strange move for a band like the Strokes but it's a lot of fun.

And they're supporting Bernie which is also great.
