Re: Deep Purple

Fifty years old In Rock is today! In 1970, this band turned heavy into metal and brought it to a generation of rockers!

Re: What are you currently listening to?

The Proclaimers, "Angry Cyclist"
I feel like this song is increasingly beginning to echo the harrowing social environment across the pond.

New energy drives it on

Re: Mark Arm? Chris Cornell? In an AiC song????

"Right Turn" was a brief but precious moment in rock history -- where the puckish rawness of Mudhoney, Alice's brooding angst and Cornell's chilling but utterly powerful became voice become one grungy entity.

Re: Punk?

Having seen 25 pages of this thread, it should seem a surety that Cock Sparrer would have got a mention? It seems otherwise, which I feel is a shame because this band, the last to entwine themselves with the spirit of punk, are overlooked in the world of today... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKDFj...

I know if given the chance, Evee said she would buy it before it was shut down.
I’d hope that somebody would. I have realised in recent months that I in fact dislike the internet intensely, and feel that this forum is one of the small handful of spaces that salvages it for me.

Re: The Devil Put Dumbledore Here

By way of an inexplicable rationale, the phrase "The Devil put Diamonds Here" sprang to mind upon reading the title.

Re: Albums you have bought lately

I received the Velvet Underground (ish) album “Squeeze” this morning... — Now, this one was derided on its original release for its lack of Lou Reed, Doug Yule on vocals, and that the original drummer Maureen Tucker was supplanted by Deep Purple’s Ian Paice. I am listening to the CD now and although...

Re: Unreleased "Tripod" era songs.

I have sent requests for information to the Alice FB page in the past, namely relating to some interviews that I was unable to find, but as I recall I didn’t get results out of it. I could give it another shot with these song titles, I suppose.

I can’t comment on the Yuku boards.

Re: Mr. Cantrell you are incoherent

It is Jerry Cantrell who loudly bellows "junk" and "fuck" at the beginning of "Junkhead". Sean Kinney shouts "Big, big Money" at the beginning of "So Close", however.

Re: man in the box, and aic being a metal band

The adjectival-noun stated in one of the poll-options, namely “retard”, is an incredibly harsh word and, in a context such as this, I would never want to use it... — Irrespective, if abrasive insults of that nature be requisite in communicating the clear distinctions betwixt two styles of music, the...

Unreleased "Tripod" era songs.

I have been sent a photograph of a board from the studio sessions for the recording for the Self-Titled record, "Tripod" or "the Dog Record" if you like -- a modicum are seen in The Nona Tapes, but this is the only time that I have descried the board in its entirety -- Detailing the names of songs a...

Re: What would you...

I might ask Layne Staley, what if he had a child, what would he call him/her? It may sound petty, if not abstruse, but I have for some time been saddened by the fact that Layne died both unwed and childless -- whether or not his heart desired any of that is a subject that will remain unmapped foreve...
