For everything "Off Topic"! Here you can discuss, rant, rave, in fact talk about anything non radio-related. Forum etiquette rules still apply.

Post by John Faulkner, Skegness » 25 Mar 2015 20:26

Well, here's a potted history of some personal musical milestones. I didn't plan to include so many links, but I am amazed by how many old favourites and rarities I have discovered on YouTube. That's right - the site which doesn't allow any copyright material! This is an accumulation of songs I've been saving over the last few weeks. I'll add the artists/titles later.

The first 'record' I ever bought! What's a 'record'? the young 'uns ask.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mmqZiFhGlbc Mungo Jerry - Alright Alright Alright

Radio Luxembourg, which I used to listen to every evening in the early 70s, used to play a lot of songs you just never heard anywhere else in the 70s. Many of them were much bigger in European countries than in the UK. Getting hold of them used to be almost impossible.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-paP6dAHUQ Dan The Banjo Man - Dan The Banjo Man

Another Radio Luxembourg 208 classic.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NW7A12FoLjo Dalston Diamonds - Kamikazi Krazy

Northern Soul was another big favourite when I was at school. I paid a small fortune to have this record, imported from the USA. It's a very simple piece but used to turn the dance floor into a real frenzy back in the day.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90_7V8SOK0Y The Magic Band - Falbala

A menacing jazz/funk/rock piece which builds slowly.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWwhba7lmCs Slave - Son Of Slide (Instrumental)

John Peel was God when I was in my late teens/until his death. This was one of many records he played which literally just stopped in my tracks and look at my Benkson TR16 in amazement!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKGj8Uf0Nv0 The Passage - Fear

More John Peel moments.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1DgMnKv_gg The Normal - TVOD / Warm Leatherette
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SS5FwhecoLY Renaldo & The Loaf - A Medical Man

Disco music, as cheesy as much of it was, featured very highly in my musical preferences.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1P4j3ynaMg Ultrafunk - Sting Your Jaws (Parts 1 & 2)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_YtN1RHre8 Bruce Johnston - Pipeline
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-NjSydVfFc Magic Disco Machine - Control Tower

How's this for pure cheese? I used to love this track.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jS8DJev0KQ Saturday Night Band - Come On Dance Dance

Slowly but surely, I got into rock. This Dutch group was one of my favourites.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MV0F_XiR48Q Focus - Hocus Pocus
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0ly_bCQ2dY Focus - Sylvia
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-bmMzCQH1Y Genesis - Mama

Jazz funk was another favourite genre. This one had me hooked when I used to go to the Bali Hai night club in Nottingham.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93NkhKJZGcg Lonnie Liston Smith - Space Princess

A favourite jazzy club track from the, er, whatever the year was. It was longer ago than I care to remember.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c2A-ybyTaPs Azymuth - Jazz Carnival (Original 12'' Version)

Another music in a different kitchen now. I mentioned the fact that I liked folk rock. This two-part masterpiece from The Albion band was one of my favourites.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RJzBO1o5XE The Albion Band - Afro Blue/Danse Royale

Are you there Ian Kelly?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-kyLuC5_yjA Mainframe - Five Minutes

This song blew me away in a club in Birmingham many years ago. 1979 I think it was.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZdaB8Yvubw Nik Straker Band - Straight Ahead

Moving to the late 80s/early 90s, I became captivated by the rave scene. Not the popular titles of course. I always liked something very different.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2ptspapCrI T99 - Anastasia
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9neHCT16Ll4 Aphex Twin - Quoth I wish I could find a better quality copy of this.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhVKUGuMbkA Quadrophonia - Quadrophonia

One of my favourite rave songs.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIgir7JKGxA Zero B - Lock Up (Monolith Mix)

I don't think the 90s was ever noted for being anything amazing, musically, but there were a few gems around.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfWMv8Y1V5E The Future Sound Of London - Papua New Guinea
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30eXKMfrVcw Age Of Love - Age Of Love
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rw_AXwdYzKg Energy 52 - Cafe Del Mar (Nalin & Kane Remix)

OK, it was a big chart hit, but was another one which stopped me in my tracks, back in the day. Refreshingly different!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7b2T8K2D-ps The Shamen - Ebeneezer Goode

A favourite classy house toon from the mid noughties.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAp_dhySy-Y Asle Bjørn - Golden Sun (Haji & Emanuel Remix)

More recent memories from the 20-Teens
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9XFER_xsN9E Klartraum - Beyond Illusion

Believe it or not, this was 'our song' at our beach wedding. Good grief! That was nearly two years ago already!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwNhf6PWMno Will Scarlet - Coffee Mate

Blowing my own saxophone, a mash-up I did for the Mastermix label.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWUb0mx_LSE A-Ha vs Nickelback - This Is How You Take Me On

Some humour to finish off with. I'm a big fan of novelty songs.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-gZKRK ... G-6SjtdwGK A Heebeegeebies Compilation

As played on the John Peel Show. VERY hip and cool at the time, but the original version was banned and I wish I could get hold of a copy. It made Number 1 in John Peel's all time Festive Fifty. This is about as close to the original version as I can find for now. It's amazing how a song could go from being ultra hip to one of the most hated songs on the radio.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXJ5oaU940U Cuban Boys - Cognoscenti vs Intelligentsia

So I've found something more addictive than the radio hobby... looking through videos on YouTube!

Any more, anybody?

Wow - what a post. Some very obscure stuff I had not heard of here - along with some great stuff I do know like Focus. Looking forward to revisiting some of these tracks. That Lonnie Liston Smith sure has a groove.

Nice one JF!

Not quite my cup of tea, Tim, but interesting music nonetheless and it's GREAT to hear something refreshingly different like that.

Nick, your first track, Donna Summer, has reminded me of the album From Here To Eternity by Giorgio Moroder. That one blew me away when I first heard it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnIwl3FNUl8

I have Neon Lights on a luminous 12" single. I wonder how much that is worth now. A quick Google reveals that people are hoping to sell this for up to £80!

I'm going to add another Carl Craig track which I think is excellent, called Jam The Box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=br1WWGjUDTQ

I was a big fan of Cabaret Voltaire and used to have the album Drinking Gasoline. My favourite track off that album was Motion Rotation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=781O1Z-kaB4

Some fantastic stuff in there. Surprised you haven't mentioned Orbital's Out There Somewhere: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSPYlFU2QUI Chime was also quite revolutionary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SISBVIDLPrY

One more for the road: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4KoH2zcmxE The Beloved - The Sun Rising.

Some nice selections there John :) 'Jazz Carnival' is one I remember very well. Slave is nice and funkeeee!!

I thought 37 tracks was quite long enough LOL! That barely scratches the surface though. I can add some more later if others aren't too fed up with such a long list!

A brief explanation of how my musical journey developed: My earliest memories are of my Mum playing her Motown tapes and records from the 1960s, with things like Smoky Robinson & The Miracles 'Tears Of a Clown' making a big impression on me. She was into soul, Motown and disco amongst other things. My Dad was into rock but as my Mum & Dad split up when I was 5 he didn't influence my tastes much. My stepdad (who was with us between around 1977-86) was also into soul, Motown, jazz-funk and some prog rock, and it was the soul, funk and disco that I picked up on.

Later into the 80s I got into electronic music, with Kraftwerk being a huge and influential turning point, probably aged about 12. This is the start of what led me onto what would become my future developments. I also got into Jean-Michel Jarre at that stage although Kraftwerk have always been the main influence. Funnily enough, it wasn't until relatively late into the 80s that I got into the who early 80s synth-pop thing, although I'd liked the Eurythmics in the early 80s and the Pet Shop Boys from the mid 1980s. From about 1987 onwards I discovered New Order via the excellent 'Substance' compilation and that led on to Depeche Mode, some Ultravox, Human League, etc. I also got into more alternative and indie sounds for a while.

Then another big turning point was discovering Detroit techno in around 1988, which was just after I had left boarding school. My musical tastes were somewhat stunted in the 1980s for a while as the school was strict on how much music we could listen to and so exposure to more interesting things was very limited (it was a Rudolf Steiner school and that was their philosophy). Anyway, Detroit techno led to house music (perfect: Kraftwerk and disco!). I was relying on the likes of John Peel and Pete Tong on Capital Radio at this time for finding interesting electronic music: it was around 1989 I first started buying 12 inch vinyl too. Then in September 1990, another big milestone: the launch of Kiss FM! There I discovered the two Colins: Colin Dale and Colin Faver who played techno, house and rave, and in the case of Colin Dale's 'Outer Limits' slot, also industrial, EBM, and later ambient. The artists who made a big impression from that era were Carl Craig and Underground Resistance. I must have made 60-70 tapes over the first half of the 90s recording these shows (how I wish I still had them). It was also when I was buying lots of vinyl, often through hearing tracks on their shows.

And so it's been since then, with my musical journey going probably more experimental and abstract as time has gone on in some ways. But electronic music has been a big part of my life for many years and so I make no apologies for including lots of it!
Good DX.

Oh... what a beautiful topic!! :)
It will take a so loooong time to listen to every suggestion you've posted, but in the meantime I'll suggest you some of the music I love in this period.

Maybe the best rapper of this decade, Kendrick Lamar, with a small piece of his last released LP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJT3b4u ... 7&index=11

A young british indie-rock band who'll be out shortly with his first LP. By now they are touring across Europe with Alt-J as support band. Wolf Alice with his last single Giant Peach: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6vEE3Plk48

Another young british indie-pop band. Her name is All we are and this is their last single (unfortunately their shortly released first album is not as brilliant as this song). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_s6Sx4P ... Y3&index=2

One of my favourite bands since forever, The Waterboys, back with their new album recorded in Memphis (called Modern Blues).
This is one of the best songs taken from there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKwAmnb ... jW7sU5l_Y3

The last single from american female rock band Sleater-Kinney https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kc1htX3 ... jW7sU5l_Y3

A very beautiful song from the british folk-rock trio The Staves https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAew5UO ... jW7sU5l_Y3

Do you know german-speaking rap? Here's a brilliant single from the union of a german crew (coming from Freising in Bavaria) named Blumentopf and an austrian -from Linz- one named Texta.
TnT with Silberbesteck https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXC5Y7q ... 3&index=24

A beautiful song from a very young american rock band, The Districts https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLZ-i2h ... 3&index=14

An austrian electropop duo, named Konea Ra with a beautiful dance remix of one of their recent singles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAnlygx ... 3&index=23

And finally for this post.... the sensual and soulful voice of FKA Twigs in one of the best songs of her first album. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8yix8P ... jW7sU5l_Y3

Post by John Faulkner, Skegness » 29 Mar 2015 16:53

You're right, Franco. A lot to listen to here. I will begin with comments on Nick's post and then check your links next.

Music is an international language and, like our hobby, it brings people together. Just about every forum has a musical thread these days, no matter what the main forum subject. I didn't plan for my post to have so many tracks, but one blast of nostalgia led to another, and on it goes. Then it became a breakdown of the most memorable musical moments in my life and I am still re-discovering lots of old favourites and rarities now.

It's all a far cry from my earliest musical interests - classical music! I hate classical music now. It became my first favourite because that's all I used to hear as a small child. My father played his classical records and some of them I really got to like. I never enjoyed the soft and gentle 'popular' classical pieces by composers such as Mozart and Beethoven, but i loved the more rowdy and raucus classical styles of the Russian composers like Rimsky-Korsakov, Mussorgsky and Shostakovich, though not Tchaikovsky. Television test cards used to be accompanied by classical music back then and that was also a big influence.

I soon became bored with classical music when I discovered Radio Luxembourg and North Sea pirate stations. The music played on BBC Radio 1 never really appealed, part from the John Peel Show, which was refreshingly different. I much preferred the music played on overseas stations. Even today I adore European styles, particularly Gypsy music aired on Balkan radio stations. This happened long before I met my wife - Jane strongly approves of my liking for Gypsy music as her roots happen to be with the Romany Gypsies.

My sister, being 12 years older than me, would play her pop favourites of the day - 60s music (I was born in 1961) and so I became very familiar with the music of that decade and still have a keen interest in 60s music.

While at school, I discovered northern soul and that still features very highly in my favourite musical categories. Strange then that should take an interest in rock music and the punk era.

Come the 80s, mainstream pop music never really took my interests and I wandered between punk, disco and jazz-funk, but usually always leaning to the more underground styles and lesser known artists. I used to travel to London with David Small to record the pirate stations of the day, Radio Jackie, Solar Radio and others whose names I forget. I still have two large boxes of cassette tapes with recordings of radio stations. A trip around Belgium and southern Netherlands (Breda and Tilburg areas), with David Small once again, brought in many more recordings of stations and this is where my interests in European music developed further.

Now I'm waffling again, but I'll finish off with my claim to fame, the fact that I used to do a lot of live work in pubs and clubs, performing live mix sets, long before it became mainstream. I discovered the mixing thing by accident, not knowing it was an already established thing in clubs in the USA. I was lucky to find an opening in the music industry in the late 90s and worked as a producer for 11 years. The job involved highly repetitive processes, hearing the same songs and snippets, over and over again. So much so that these days I just want to switch off and enjoy peace and quiet. I never have the radio on in the background now, unless it's a talk station. But I still enjoy those nostalgic moments, re-discovering old favourites thanks to YouTube and SoundCloud, etc. Hopefully this thread will help us all reminisce some more and perhaps hear new and exciting music we have not yet discovered.

To Franco.

I like the Wolf Alice track. More indie than rock? Can't say I like rap music. There are only two types of music I find difficult to digest, one is rap, the other is acid, but that's not to say there aren't any rock or acid tracks I like.

I think the Konea Ra track is great. Reminds me of something which came out a couple of years ago. A group from Devon, UK. Damn. What was the track?

Franco, the FKA Twigs track is the most interesting for me in your list. I think the others are too mainstream rock to hit the spot with me. Here's a couple of alternative rock tracks that I have liked:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STcAUluhVRQ White Stripes - Fell In Love With A Girl

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSdtvfBQd6c Royal Blood - Out Of The Black

I like the raw stripped down energy of them both but as I said I've never been interested in mainstream rock in general.

As for hip hop I used to like things like Public Enemy, De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Hijack and Jungle Brothers but that was a long time ago. Some instrumental hip hop is good like DJ Shadow, who is very creative with his way of creating new tracks from sampled material e.g.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcxsheROd3E DJ Shadow - Building Steam With A Grain Of Salt

John, I'm not big on classical as a whole but I do like the more minimal repetitive material like Michael Nyman, John Cage, Pierre Boulez, Terry Riley and Philip Glass. Some of the composers like György Ligeti definitely hits the spot such as this one:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iVYu5lyX5M György Ligeti - Lux Aeterna
Good DX.

When I was about 4 I used to listen to my dad's old tapes and records...The Shadows and Status Quo are the ones that spring to mind!

We didn't have a CD player in the 90s, so all the music in our house from that decade is on cassette. I enjoyed the dance music that was in the charts in the late 90s/early 00s - I particularly remember my dad's Sash! albums. One of the programs we got for our first computer in 1999 was 'Dance eJay' which allowed you to create your own dance music. We spent many hours on it before we had the internet. When I hear certain 90s dance songs on the radio now, it's clear that they were made using a similar program.

Killing Joke in Dub- a mixed bag , basically the best tracks are the dubs done in 79-94 and the new ones done specially for this release are cheesy
discs 2 & 3 could be condensed into an excellent single cd, disc 1 can be used as a bird scarer :D
example of crap track https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkh0AUjgJWo (newly remixed)

example of brilliant track https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s05zOeu6tc0 (mixed 93-94)


Faith No More- Sol Invictus- still totally on the fence about it, am now on my 2nd play
glad they're back together and the album is not crap, i just don't know if i will eventually love like i love the previous 2

The Holy Trinity of 1981 Clash bootlegs!
S.O.S, Hts & Up And at 'em
culled from the bands residencies at New York, Paris & London

finally got my most wanted vinyl (Centre) The Clash "Hits" triple LP
not actually a hits compilation but 2 live shows from 1981 my favourite year for live Clash
its everything I hoped for punky,funky, dubby,bluesy & weird

SIDE A: 10-19-81: Know Your Rights / The Guns Of Brixton / Train In Vain / White Man In Hammersmith Palais
•SIDE B: 10-19-81: The Magnificent Seven / Clash City Rockers / Koka Kola / Ivan Meets GI Joe / Junco Partner
•SIDE C: 10-19-81: The Leader / I Fought the Law / Ghetto Defendent / Grafitti Rap (Futura 2000)
•SIDE D:10-19-81: Somebody Got Murdered / London Calling / Clampdown / This Is Radio Clash
•SIDE E: 06-10-81: The Call Up / Bankrobber / Complete Control / Lightning Strikes / Charlie Don't Surf / Spanish Bombs
•SIDE F: 6-10-81: Broadway / Capital Air (w/Allen Ginsberg) / One More Time / Brand New Cadillac / Washington Bullets / Janie Jones / Armagideon Time / London's Burning / White Riot






thank god the majority of Clash fans consider late 1981 a damp squib or i'd have been outbid

I looked on you tube for some clips to show just how strange (in a good way) the Clash had become by 1981

this early 82 clip sort of shows it despite a bad case of flu, especially the jamming at the end https://youtu.be/FwrtjHxtkFo?t=9m5s

London calling is a great album, but still, got be Sandinista for me.
hard to choose a great clash song, all good.
but, for me personally, were not one of the best, or my favourite of the punk bands.
bit more hardcore groups for me, as in dead kennedys, or exploited, to name but two.

great period of music was that.

mark.

No doubt Sandinista is a sprawling epic but my desert island clash album would be London Calling - the eponymous title track just keeps on sounding more and more threatening each time I hear it. The second best song ever written about London.

However two of their best were never on an album (Complete Control and White Man in HP).
