I got Origin of Symmetry in de plaatboef in the Hague for just 10 euros! (tears of joy :cry: ). They are really good! Is there anything else any other band close to what they make I wonder?

BTW. Lucky dutch bastards. Everything's cheaper. Cds, DVDs you name it.

Nothing I've found comes close enough to be called "like Muse". :(

And no, I can't really think of anything that sounds like Muse... If I think of something, I'll let you know.

Yeah, I picked up quite a few CDs the last time I was in Amsterdam...a lot cheaper than they are here...

Yngwie malmsteen? That's classical style arpeggios on a distorted guitar. Although he doesn't have anyone doing a Thom Yorke impression over the top so I guess it doesn't count.

Plus he had some sort of normal rock'n'roll self-distance. How about Yes?

08-06-2004, 08:57:09
Oh god, you two are agreeing. *faint*

The Muse fans I know were impressed by Martin Grech. It's vocal pyrotechnics rather than guitar heroics, but they're coming from some degree of common ground.

I'll keep an ear out for him.
Protein how you can say malmsteen has anything in common with muse is beyond me! But you rectified so ok.

Also in my original post I mentioned the attractive dutch prices. I didn't tell you I also got Jesus and mary chain's psychocandy for the same price as well from there. And.... yes I found it just 6.50 euros here. They also had their singles CD so I got that instead.

I've also fallen on a very strange phenomenon. I got an old CD for just a song. Then i found out some of the other songs in the CD had the greek lyrics followed by french translations as the song went on in a "very passionate french voice which tries to capture the greek sunsoul" (TM). very weird and slightly embarrasing but i found out they were recorded in the nationale theatre populaire so it sort of makes some sense. very strange though and definitely not something "for the tourists".

Love them or hate them, this is harsh. :(

That is awful.

Not a nice thing to happen...

28-06-2004, 22:34:07
wow. How tragic and bizarre.

28-06-2004, 22:38:32
That's great, actually. You get to see your son perform before thousands of fans, doing what he loves best and successful.

I'd love to go out that way if I had the chance someday.

I think that, given the choice, he'd have preferred to go on living for another 20 years or so.

29-06-2004, 17:26:36
yeah, and whilst what BGH said might be true for someone who knew they were going to die, i don't think that chap's dad would have taken much pleasure from his nice day as he suddenly and unexpectedly collapsed

If the guy had a massive coronary or aneurism, he didn't know shit.
And think about it--life is so transient, we have a slim guarantee that old age will be our Reaper--if we are going to go at some random time, it is a true blessing to go at an apex, acme or zenith.
I still contend he had a good death.
Sucks for everyone else, true...but he was blessed.

tragic but there are worse ways to go... he went knowing his son has made it and is doing what he wants with sucess.

Coming back to a bit more pleasant topic, after having listened to it for quite a few times, the Jesus and Mary Chain Singles CD is one of the best rock compilations/albums ever made IMHO.

It's great, but the last few are a bit poor. If they'd split up after releasing "Reverence" they'd be more fondly remembered.

I think the new must album is better. Whaleboy from Apolyton btw...

My Dad works for a company called Thales. They changed their name, and then realised that nobody knew how to pronounce it.

Th-ales...sounds like a lisper talking about what he drank.
