In deepest Bavaria suppin on a Weltenburger Kloster Barock Dunkel... so getting in the local swing of things... http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/1315/4920/ - '87/100-Very good'

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awlEOPfJBiE 'Rammstein - Links 2 3 4 Live 2016 @Festivaltour'

Typical German, lots of muscles, flesh, leather, 'young men', and marching around in a pseudo-military style. It's so damned gay!! Oh, and lots of [cough cough] '''saluting'''. though not that sort as that's very illegal.

Nice beer, strange people.

Might have posted this before, if so prob long ago. Dirty Loops have come on in later years to some interesting stuff. Here an early one, kinda... acid/alt jazz. But the technical and vocal precision is something to behold, esp from such relative youngsters.
i.e. Jeez THAT bass, Holy carp that vocal range etc... so totally ignore that Bieber was behind the original, this is a whole other proposition all together...

'The Source Featuring Candi Staton - You Got The Love'

From the early 90s, a wonderful 'house' track. Builds slowly. Much covered in later years, but as so often the original sweeps all before it...

ps. another mix, very close to the original as I remember it. Love the way it ebbs and flows like the tides, finally gently building into the end. A super-crisp recording - sounds epic through a good hifi.

'Dead Boys - Live at CBGB's 1977'
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOHOM1hVM-M
-----------

I was just watching some early punk vids. The above is a berlaaaast from my very long ago past. Though this version is geographically from the eponymous CBGBs Club in NYC, rather than 'jolly old London'.
The first track 'Sonic Reducer' I probably haven't heard for 30 years, literally, despite it being a brief hit back then. And it's a quality recording/vid too. Authentic to small gigs back at that time too and the look, feel of the whole thing...


This came out of looking into a new HBO series re: the punk era called Vinyl. Haven't got beyond the trailer yet, but...

Shadow Gallery – Interesting, never heard of them before. Quite a collection of styles, from ‘post prog’, outright metal (Iron Maiden etc) to verging on doomy thrash.

Dixie Dregs – Promising venue. Blimey getting off towards Blue-grass. The biggest surprise was the lead Steve Morse [!] who went on from them to be lead guitar in Deep Purple, and the line-up I saw in SG a few years back no less...

Hot Tuna – interesting (again), only heard that as a surf brand of clothing. But in this case a spin-off from Jefferson Airplane. Knowing that I can see how they evolved that sound.

The Naz – Again never heard of them. Reminds me somewhat of bands like The Yardbrirds... [their 2nd link more ‘psych’... like it :)

Kansas – Almost like Focus in the intro -> The Mamas and the Papas.

Queen/Ogre Fight – Don’t know if I’ve heard this before. The bands inherent talent really shines though [guitar, vocals, slightly unorthodox composition etc, all comes together, in a functional and refreshing way].

Queen/Nevermore. Again don’t know this. By god FM could sing... what a voice.
-------

Wow, fascinating compilation there, and I don’t think I’ve heard a single one of those tracks before! The surprise there is that I thought I knew Queen reasonably well, but it shows me that I don't...
