Joy division - Unknown pleasures.

Someone else on my other half's spotify list was listening to it. Good stuff.

Hmm.  I'd listen to Joy Division but I'd really like to get through the night in one piece.

Anyway right at this minute is Siouxsie And The Banshees - Peek-A-Boo.  Funny really as I didn't like SATB back in the 80s, but I watched the quite excellent Son of Rambow earlier and it was on the soundtrack -- my extraordinarily more eclectic music taste these days can appreciate that it is actually quite a good song (for the genre).

The boiler! It makes amusing noises, and I probably need a new one.

"Beat Surrender" on BBC Tees.

Bank Robber by The Clash opening tonight's show.

Highly recommend you guys outside the BBC Tees / Newcastle broadcast area tune-in via internet radio.

Underworld: Dark and long.

Exactly as the title describes.

Love that song.

I've been getting back into Slam, used to go raving to them every week at The Arches in Glasgow and was amazed to find loads of new tunes in Spotify.

Albeit yesterday afternoon rather than current: Jeffrey Bernard is unwell, the Keith Waterhouse play with John Hurt as Jeffrey.

It was ok but tbh I was a little disappointed as it was a bit slow and I thought it would be funnier.

R4 2.30 Sat afternoon so will be on "listen again" for at least a week if anybody else wishes to be slightly underwhelmed.

Keepin' The Horse Between Me And The Ground, Seasick Steve. We're blessed this itinerant was found.

Wonderful talent, right enough. But his back story has been questioned recently. Seem to remember he was actually a session musician throughout the 70s.

Granted it's wiki but this suggests that he was indeed a session musician but teh oteh rparts of his back story remain correct:

Childhood and early life

Wold was born in Oakland, California.[5] When he was four years old, his parents split up. His father played boogie-woogie piano and Wold tried to learn when he was five or six, without success. At the age of eight, he was taught to play the guitar by K. C. Douglas, who worked at his grandfather's garage, and later realised that he had been taught the blues.[6] Douglas wrote the song "Mercury Blues" and had played with Tommy Johnson in the early 1940s.[7] In 2000 Wold gave his age as 50,[8] and his surname has also been provided as "Leach."[9]

Wold left home at 13 to avoid abuse at the hands of his stepfather, and lived rough and on the road in Tennessee, Mississippi and elsewhere, until 1973.[5][10] He would travel long distances by hopping freight trains, looking for work as a farm laborer or in other seasonal jobs, often living as a hobo.[6][11] At various times, Wold worked at a carnival, as a cowboy and as a migrant worker. Wold described this time of his life by saying "Hobos are people who move around looking for work, tramps are people who move around but don't look for work, and bums are people who don't move and don't work. I've been all three."[12]

Adult life and early musical career

In the 1960s, Wold started touring and performing with fellow blues musicians, and had friends in the music scene including Joni Mitchell.[10] He spent time living in San Francisco.[13] Since then, he has worked, on and off, as a session musician and studio engineer. In the late 1980s, while living in Olympia, near Seattle, he worked with many indie label artists.[10] In the 1990s he continued to work as a recording engineer and producer, producing several releases by Modest Mouse[14] including their 1996 debut album This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About.

At one time, living in Paris, Wold made his living busking, mostly on the metro.[15] After moving to Norway in 2001, Wold released his first album, entitled Cheap, recorded with The Level Devils as his rhythm section, with Jo Husmo on stand-up bass and Kai Christoffersen on drums. His debut solo album, Dog House Music was released by Bronzerat Records on November 26, 2006, after he was championed by an old friend, Joe Cushley, DJ on the Balling The Jack blues show on London radio station Resonance FM.


 

 

I can't find an internet reference to it but if memory serves Peter Buck (REM) saw a romance in living like a tramp and having dropped out of college he started sleeping rough and picking up the odd casual job.  He didn't like it at all and it lasted a very short time, months or even weeks. I was impressed that he was so candid about being basically a failed tramp because he had actually had a go and many rock stars would have played it up a lot rather than saying that it was rubbish and short-lived.

I guess I was pretty drunk on Friday night, as I can't remember starting this thread. Although I do vaguely remember listening to joy division.

Yup, that's Joy Division -- enough to drive you to drink.

Rush's "A Show Of Hands". Reminds me of being back at university and was one of the three CDs I owned at the time. It prompted me to look up how much messing was done in the studio afterwards rather than "Live".

Perhaps ironic that the last track on that album is titled "I Remember Nothing".
