I think this was my intro (long ago) to 'Gangster rap'. It's really great, powerful, and speaks of what I don't know. Keep going guys!

I used to think of him as a sort of cultural brute.... but you know, [many] years later.... I'm not so sure about that...

Yeah he's sweary, but hey it's his thing.

No?

Now that I'm back with regular connectivity...

Your Walsh link is I think a Hackett link oso. But no matter you have illustrated the point well.


Hope you caught the one I posted with Crimson's Fripp's League Of Gentlemen or some other group he had where they were using one on an acoustic (!). As I believe you are a fan of KC.

I posted 2 versions of Hackett's Narnia, which is an angelic piece - one live and showing the E-Bow in actionbut with a different singer than was on the album; and the superior album version with Walsh singing. The other guy makes a valiant effort though in vain - I can't think of any singer taking on Walsh in his heyday.

Walsh sings on a couple of other songs on that album, too, which are good, but like any Hackett album, much as I have always revered the guy's guitar playing and creativity, his songwriting can be pretty spotty.

JR8 wrote:Brah: re: the Moog synth track Popcorn... LOL, Blast from the past!!! Around 1973 I was given an album for Xmas and it was something like ‘20 greatest synthesiser hits’, which of course was really very fashionable/becoming mainstream at the time. I seem to recall Popcorn was the main song on that album, and I have not heard it for many years!


The version of Popcorn that was a hit in the States in '72 was by Hot Butter and after hearing it a couple of times, really grated, but I never heard Kingsley's original version until last week. I think his is far superior, and pretty amazing to hear that kind of basically 80s electronic music being done in 1969.

I only just heard something similar, that really caught me off guard, I did a double take on it. It's got to be heard to be believed, assuming one knows the original and can appreciate the juxtaposition: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIanfwbVkc4

p.s. How ever much I occasionally feel I must have 'heard it all', something comes along and knocks that thought right out of my head! :)

Funny.

Why do I think of the Pistols, whacking up, as expected, as deserved - Just Life.

But from NWA I'm meant to think of it as some credible 'voice of protest'.

They're all poor, destitute, and coming from complete dung-holes.

Why does their skin-colour matter ?

I actually think the music market is complely freakin shallow. But thats another story eh.
