Oh yeah, I can see Gwar doing a really superb live show.   Out of respect for the next artist's litigious tendencies towards youtube videos, I will not be posting any audio/visual material.   In t

Now I have Nickelback stuck in my head...  

The Watson Twins are great.  Jenny Lewis is great.  Together, they are also great:


I would talk about Jenny Lewis, but I already posted Rilo Kiley here, and everyone who's curious can use Wikipedia and Pitchfork.  Former child actor, current indie rock diva.  Here is a song about statutory rape:

Here are the Watson Twins infusing a number by The Cure with country sensibilities and a pinch of heroin:

The studio take is way druggier.

Finally, here is the first track off of Fire Songs:

The musical scene of Northern Europe has long been tinged with anti-clericalism.  Who could forget the spate of arson attacks conducted by the Norwegian black metal movement on churches?  In one instance, they burned down the church and then took a picture of it to use for their album cover!



But of course, that was peanuts compared to what came before it.  Norwegian black metal musicians committed a few arsons and a few murders here and there.  Their antecedents were far more extreme, far more violent, and so brutal that there is simply no comparison.




Here they are; the great ancestors of contemporary metalheads showing you how it's done.  Those are emissaries of the Pope, and they're throwing them out of a window.  Why?  Because they think the Pope fucking sucks, that's why, and because they're about to kick off a war of massive and unholy bloodshed:








To this day, some of the cathedrals of Europe are still scarred by this centuries-old uprising:




Who were these madmen?  Who were these devotees of Satan, who tore out the faces of the Saints and burned women and children alike?  Who were these dark-hearted apostles of blackest, darkest, blackest, coldest evil?


Motherfucking Lutherans, that's who.  And now we are going to listen to Lutheran music, because Lutherans make modern Satanists look like a bunch of limp-dicked, palsied weaklings when it comes to destroying the Church and causing bloodshed.

Best rap song happens to be the first by the Sugarhill Gang from 1979. Ninety-eight percent of all rap songs since are drek. 




I long for the days when black musical acts culturally appropriated racially insensitive stereotypes.

      I start this thread about music of Romania. Not sure if belongs here as will be more about older music than recent one but if it is more appropriate in the history section please move it there.
      Without further ado, I'll start with a classic folk-rock album of Romanian rock band Phoenix - Muguri de fluier (Flute buds) - 1974. After they run away from Romania they named themselves Transylvania Phoenix despite the fact that the band originated in Banat region. Obviously they were banned by Communist censorship but after 1989 their music exploded, especially in university environment. 
      Muguri de fluier album was perhaps the most played of all their creations due to its peculiar sound inspired from folklore ranging from Southern Balkans to gypsy music or Central European music. It is considered to be the best of their albums. 
      LE: about full album, only managed to link it this way: "Phoenix - Mugur De Fluier (1974) [HQ]"
      Few words about each song.
      Lasa, Lasa! (Leave it, Leave it!) it is just an interlude between songs that appeared on The Immortals soundtrack (1974)
      Pavel Chinezu, leat 1479   - about a local hero, guitar solo a bit a la Rory Gallagher 
      Strunga (The Gorge) - also for the soundtrack of Immortals movie. 
      Andrii Popa (name of a famous Hajduk) - song about an Hajduk known to free people enslaved by Ottomans. 
      Mica Tiganiada (Small Gypsiliad)  - dulcimer, bongos, violins, a very complex music inspired from gypsy folklore well sustained by rock instruments
      Ochii negri, Ochi de tigan (Black eyes, gypsy eyes)- an archaic sound which was initially considered to develop a rock opera based on it. 
      Muzica si muzichia  (Music and diminutive for music which is a slang word that I have no idea how to translate it, sing-song maybe or musicy as spending an Y is often taken as a diminutive)  - this song conserve the best the character of the music from Banat, the home region of this band with alternative measures and broken rhythm that reminds peasants' fairs music with oriental and Balkanic influences
      Mugur de fluier (Flute buds) - with Romanian  shepherd flute integrated between rock instruments, gives the name of the album; some say it's inspired from Christmas Song of Jethro Tull from Living in the past 
      Anule, hanule (Oh year, oh inn) - last two songs anticipate more their future songs, closer to hard-rock 
      Dansul Codrilor (Dance of woods)
      Songs from this album featured on the soundtrack of Nemuritorii (Immortals) movie. You can watch it here if you like with English subs.
