Just got back in from the Manchester Arena and Queen and Adam Lambert was cracking. There's good singers, and then there's Lambert towering above them. Natty threads,.too. Taylor and May still have it by the bucketload, too.

We saw Wet Leg at Green Man last year. They were first up at 5pk on a Thursday and smashed it. They were really good, and i second the "well worth a listen". I wil check the others out.

Radio 3 just played My Lovely Horse during a sequence of equine-related pieces.

I'd be more surprised if they played I've A Horse Outside...

Two absolutely gorgeous string quartets on Radio 3's lunchtime concert today. Both the Carwithen and the Brahms were new to me, and the playing was luxuriant.

BBC Sounds link for a very enjoyable hour.

T-shirts from a few bands I saw at the weekend. The sweetchunks band was brilliant.

This is quite a thing. The NME's singles of the year from 1975 - 2017.

A lot of work to put together, and a pleasing thing to have set to random through the work day.


I haven't looked at this thread in a long time. I'll look forward to listening to that playlist, a great idea.

Scrolling through it was a weird sort of feeling - like a music map of my life - at the top of the list was some stuff I generally recognised but was too young to really be 'into'. And then part way through became song I was quite familiar with from the radio in the car, and then it got to music I liked, music I bought, bands I was into. But then, I kept scrolling and began to realise I didn't recognise much anymore, songs I've never heard and artists I've never heard of. It's clear I started to get engaged with music in my teens and through 20s, but by 30 I'd stopped listening to much 'new' stuff and now... I'm old

And after I finished scrolling, my eyes felt that funny 'still moving' thing, like after focussing on a moving image like movie credits or guitar hero.

That being said, I finally listened to some new (ish) music recently. It seems there's a punk-y part or Australian music that's thriving.




The Chats (here's their breakout song from a few years back) absolutely kill it:



They're so fucking Aussie, raw and funny too.

Went to see Bellowhead in Oxford last night.

Absolutely amazing show, even if the New Theatre isn't really suited for that kind of stuff. Even in the stalls it was quite cramped once everyone started standing up to dance, clap, and jump.

About mid-way through they did a touching tribute to Paul Sartin, playing a recording of him singing to an almost-blacked out stage before slowly starting accompanying him as the lights faded back up. It worked really well.

Probably the first time I've sung along to Roll, Alabama, Roll in a very long time too. Great night and so glad I finally got to see them live.
