Wanted: Blindingly brilliant piece of rock music, under two minutes long, no lyrics. The less repetitive, and the more moods in the piece the better.

Don't make me resort to posting this request on 'Poly.

Can it be loud and horrible and metally? Cause I might have a few that could fit the bill. Is incoherent screaming okay?

04-08-2002, 20:51:56
Okay, that was a shit idea. How about some Surf of some kind? Link Wray's pieces are quite single-mood, unfortunately.

I'll hunt through my travelling case. Wait.

04-08-2002, 21:30:36
This is taking just a tad longer than I thought it would. Sorry, I'll be done within the hour. Hopefully.

Meanwhile, what about Soul Instrumentals? You know, Green Onions, Last Nite (Bar-Kays), Soul Finger (Mar-Keys) that sort of stuff. Good groove!

rock. loud and metally is good.

Did I mention obscure? Obscure is good. Not that that will be a likely problem for anyone here.

Okay, here are all the instrumentals or near-instrumentals I've found that are around 2 minutes in length, ie. up to 2:40. :cute:

Jim Fear by Dillinger Escape Plan 2:22
You want many, many, silly moods? Well, okay, variations on "I'm angry with life and everybody", then, but still. Contains incoherent shouting throughout, the only discernible phrase is "Fuck You, Fuck You, FUCK YOU!!!!"

Gator's Groove by Willis Jackson 2:42
This is quite Jazzy R&B, not Rock. Pretty one-mood too.

Let's Go Away For a While by The Beach Boys 2:21
Brilliant pop instrumental. One mood, but complex.

Pet Sounds by The Beach Boys 2:23
Likewise brilliant pop instrumental. One mood, but complex as hell, at least in terms of layers 'n' stuff. A classic.

String Round a Stick by Bob Log III 2:40
This is quite fun hard/fast hillbilly-blues nonsense, very nice. Moods? Yahoo!

Spyrone by Harry J All Stars 2:12
Quite nice moody reggae instrumental. Not brilliant, but this is an exhaustive list of what's on my CDs right now, y'hear?

Storm Warning by Lyn Taitt and the Boys 2:27
Brilliant, astounding Rocksteady classic. Very moody. Good instrumental solo.

Banty Rooster Blues by Bantam Rooster 1:00
Shitty blues instrumental. Sorry for mentioning it. Quite hard though.

Guns of Navarone by The Skatalites 2:30
Possibly the finest Ska instrumental in history. Absolute class.

Return of Django by The Upsetters 2:31
One of the classic Reggae instrumentals, before the Genre went all soft.

The Liquidator by Harry J All Stars 2:53
I know, too long, but this is the finest instrumental ever recorded. Seriously. Again early reggae.

Er, that's it. I should have brought another set of records, I feel. :D

Thanks Snappy:)

CK Killer by Amen

Exactly what you want.

05-08-2002, 14:25:53
One more:

Pipeline by Johnny Thunders 2:21

05-08-2002, 14:31:59
"under two minutes long,"

Actually reading the qualifications again CK Killer is out 'cause it has lyrics.

Take The Devil By The Horns And Fuck Him Up The Ass - Sum-41

Sorry. Had to be said. :)

The first track off the Pixies album "Trompe le monde". Can't remember the name.

05-08-2002, 18:29:00

That is a GREAT song title!

Can't get the Baby Song of KaZaA. Can't find the Johnny Thunders version of Pipeline. The Ventures' version is as rock as a barndance.

Is that the surf guitar track? I think it's called Cecelia Ann or something similar. It's also the first track on the best of the Pixies.

The Chantays did Pipeline originally. It's too surf to be rock. The most famous cover is by Dick Dale and Stevie Ray Vaughn, not too bad, mostly 'cause Dick Dale is fucking a guitar god.

Johnny Thunders' version is quite cool, with a nice set of studio musicians... (Steve Jones, Paul Cook, Phil Lynnott and Thunders himself on lead guitar... :bouncmsk: )
