I was lucky enough to get my dad's and some of my Grandpa's Big Bad and jazz records - Glenn Miller is just fun to listen to.

And what Brian Setzer has done with Rockabilly, Swing and dance is just brilliant.

I've found that no matter what decade, there has never been a lack of good music. You just had to look for it off the beatin' path.

As Pathos mentioned, college stations were always a good source, because they are free form and not locked into the commercial programming that mainstream radio is in. Commercial programming is controlled by the record companies and Billboard magazine and other such industries. The programing is computer controlled and the stations in the comercial networks are told to plug into the program. They give the DJs a choice of maybe 1, or 2 songs they can choose on their own, but most times it comes from a list. Some stations try to rebel a little by having late sunday night programming about the Beatles, or the Grateful Dead, or they cover a little of the local music scene, but you don't hear much independant programing, unless you listen to the college stations, or know the frequency of a pirate station.

Sometimes, you get lucky and you find an independant station, like KPIG. I think they are out of the Pacific Northwest. They say their programing is Hawaiin/Bluegrass, but they do all kinds of interesting stuff.

Someone mentioned Big Band. I grew up on that stuff. My father loved that and jazz, so I acquired a taste for it myself. Some nights when I'm home alone checking my email, I'll tune the cable box to the music stations and listen to the Big Band/Swing station. Other nights I might listen to the Bluegrass station.

Usually though, my chant when it comes to music is, "LOUDER, FASTER. LOUDER, FASTER".

See I made my own luck and went with Sirius Radio. I have such an eclectic taste that it suites my mood for whatever. Mainly the NFL radio, Sinatra, Punk, Hard Rock, Metal, Latin all uncut and commercial free.

What I really dig is that they play new and obscure music as well as stuff that isn't commercially viable

I'm still kickin' myself for not going with satellite for my car. I sorta ran outta money when it came down to it. Blah, someday.

At least I have my multi-disc cd unit. That keeps me away from commercial radio. The only thing I listen to on the radio is news and sports.

Squirrel Nut Zippers, Madness, Stray Cats, Blue Angel (Cindy Lauper before she lost her voice and went main stream. She ROCKED back then. Another one I witnessed for myself.), Gods the list just keeps getting longer and longer and longer an.....errrk*thump*. :laugh:

There were so many great East Coast bands back in the '70s as well that had cassettes out. Most of those tapes have gone the way of dust long ago, but they were perfect for turnin' it up and drivin' cross country.

Can't get into the satellite thing yet.

I get my fill of non-commercial radio from the internet now.

The best station in the world (in my opinion) is Tundra Trash Radio.

http://www.tundratrashradio.com/

The last dozen or so cd's I've bought (other than new cd's by bands I was already into) have been bands I first heard on the Trash.

I've been playing the crap out of Clutch's From From Beale Street to Oblivion lately.  Dayum that's some good stuff.

Kick's ass, don't it?

After playing it several times a week ever since it came out I'm currently re-discovering "Robot Hive/Exodus" which, for some reason, I only listened to a few times right when it came out.

It kicks ass too.

One of my coworkers is a former pro session musician.  I played some of it for him and now he's planning on going out and buying their whole catalog.

I have all 8 of their studio albums but not any of the live albums or re-issues. I've also picked up a few cd's with a variety of different bands on them just because there's one Clutch song. Their cover of Jethro Tull's "Cross-Eyed Mary" was worth the price of the double cd "Sucking the 70's." That whole double cd ended up being really cool though.

I just found out recently they've done a second "Sucking the 70's" and on this one Clutch team up with Five Horse Johnson for a cover of George Clinton's "Red Hot Mama." I'll be getting that the next time I order from Amazon.

One of the things I really like about Clutch is they've managed to get better and better with each new album. Most bands who've put out at least a half dozen albums it's always a case where their earlier stuff is better. Clutch's early stuff was cool but I think they're WAY better now.

And they stick to their guns despite never catching on with the mainstream. Which is unusual in this day and age.

This thread seems to be getting halfway revived, so I guess I'll jump on the ol' bandwagon.

Anyone here like Corvus Corax? I'm absolutely in love with them currently, especially the song "Douce Dame Joliet Viator".

"Stop a Bullet" by Blacklight Burns is currently making it's rounds on my stereo. As are "Closer" and "The Great Destroyer" by Nine Inch Nails. "Passenger" by Deftones, is a song I'll always be obsessed with. "The Undertaker" by Puscifer, "Pistol Grip Pump" by Rage Against The Machine, the "These Boots Are Made For Walking" cover by KMFDM, "Dare" by Gorillaz, "Bitches" by Mindless Self Indulgence, "Cuts You Up" by Static X...... and I could go on, seeing as I have more CD's than I would ever wish to count, but my boredom is sated.

Bed, here I come.

They visited PARF 2 years ago, on their First ever trip to the US. There's pics up on their website of their wenching.  And Ardor got pinned as a Privateer on our ship, The Wenches Pride.

So, you could say I'm very much in lust with them, yes.   ;D

I've recently started listening to No More Kings.  Their one song "sweep the leg" is so catchy it should be considered a Schedule 2 drug but I started listening to the rest of the album and these guys, although not hard rock by any strecth of the meaning, are still a whole lotta alright.

So I'd heard. Tch. If only I'd been able to be there... oh, jealousy, there you are again.

It's been a while now, I do hope there's a chance they would consider making another trip here. Failing Pennsylvania, really anywhere in the United States would be fine by me. I'd find a way to see them this time around. Air-fair, hotel stay... it'd be worth it. I can only imagine the energy they'd give off live...

Here's an etiquette question though: Is it appropriate to mosh to Corvus Corax?  :D

Been  caught in a music time warp lately. An old band from the early '70s called Captain Beyond. Their "Dancing Madly Backwards" CD... was originally vinyl obviously, but I found the CD. My ears have been ringing lately because of it. Heh.

Dude I've had both Captain Beyond discs since the early 90's when I learned they were a major influence on Monster Magnet. I say both instead of all 3 since I don't really count "Dawn Explosion." Different lineup and all.

The first album is an awesome piece of 70's rock. "Mesmerization Eclipse" is an all-time favorite track of mine. Some of that shit was ahead of its time.

However...I was majorly disappointed with "Sufficiently Breathless." It totally lacked the fire of the first one. I only listen to it now and again to see if I missed something or if I'll suddenly "get it."

I never do.

Still...that first album is a serious example of some great rock that's been totally overlooked.
