Nice anecdote. Funny how support bands tend to fly by the seat of their pants. Death or glory eh!! :)


p.s. Alice In Chains, a band that never really crossed my radar. Could you perhaps post a 1.01 representative vid/link? I'd be very interested to hear it...


Man in the Box is probably their "anthem" if you will (song everyone knows).

Some music that wasn't as much mainstream but some good grooves. I listen to this kind of stuff all the time.

Fun Loving Criminals (their videos are pretty funny too)

Scooby Snack:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mx4vyO9FpU

Too Hot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4werZIRI_Oc

Sidenote: FLC's biggest hit was Scooby Snack but because the sampled part of the movie Pulp Fiction that they used for song intro, they gave up most of the royalties to the song.

Another gem of a song with nice guitar at the end:
Sammy Hagar's 'Eagle's Fly':
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MlZNWckpKT8

Great blues rock:
Johnny Lang's 'Still Rainin'->

Thanks for all the links! I look forward to listening to them when I get back from the back-woods trip away that I'm on.

Ohhhh-kayyyyyy! :o

I had Tubular Bells (c75?) which in some ways was quite engaging for that period; but in retrospect it is more 'Look at me, isn't it amazing how many instruments I can play!'.

One could argue that it was precisely the extreme musical self-indulgence of that period (prog-rock etc), that invited and crystallised the cleansing of the The Augean Stables that followed: the punk era.

The Offspring - Bad Habit live @ the Billboards 1994

Ha ha.... was looking for a vid of this. When I found it, I find '94 coincides precisely with my 1st stint in SG (and antagonising my neighbours)

"Gimmie A Pigfoot (and a bottle of beer)"- Bessie Smith, 1933

Considered so raucous, that it was perhaps one the first recordings to be banned! :)

I've currently got "Total Science & S.P.Y Feat Riya & DaM FunK - Piano Funk " on constant repeat. Though give it a week or so and I'll be sick to death of it, you know how it is.

Mmmm ... pretty damned tasty! :)

Bet that would sound great through a decent hi-fi, never mind at a club...

[got some sub-sonics going on].
