Blimey, feeling my age now in this discussion, if THAT is before your time :)

I remember the first time I heard ‘Madchester’ music, and it was Oasis. There used to be a branch of the Italian casual-wear shop Replay, in the basement of Ngee Ann City. Strolling in one day (c 20 years ago) while a friend tried on clothes, they had their first album playing over the PA. Come to think of it that was something that used to happen quite often back then, I’d be in a bar, cafe, shop and suddenly ‘be taken’ by the background music [cue: instant scramble to find out what the track was, before it ended]... hasn’t happened for years now.... shame...

Any Patti Smith cover of anything is better than the original :-D

That is a very striking choice, from that band. I wonder why you chose it lol. In many ways it is so out of character from their other work.

Funnily enough I got to see them in Hitchin where I'm from. We used to have this music event each year called Rhythms of the World and they played once. Sadly due to people not behaving themselves the event is a bit of a non event nowadays.

Now this is more of a hint of my musical tastes (not this song in particular) but if anyone ever wants to discuss Strummer or that whole movement I will happily waste hours talking about it!!!

Don't get confused between my personality & my attitude. My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are. (Tupac)

Miles Davis - Doo Bop

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irnsCscY ... 94A016A7B0


'The project stemmed from Davis sitting in his New York apartment in the summer with the windows open, listening to the sound of the streets. He wanted to record an album of music that captured these sounds.'
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doo-Bop

To me it's like an impressionist piece of art: An impression rather than 'a resolved answer on a plate' (as so music can be).
