Well done for the country tracks that I didn't hate!

Well the Uncle Tupelo track wasn't really a country one- more a bluegrass/American folk track.

And that's not country?
Ok...

Nah. Country's a younger genre. Admittedly the borders can get blurred but what I reckon marks a track out as "country" more than anything is the two-note bassline played on the guitar. There's probably some great muso term to explain it, but I don't know what it is. It's piss-easy to play, though.

It's a real shame you can't listen to the tracks in these features. Damn copyright bollocks.

They all sound the same to me ;) Obviously must be the unaccustomed ear...

And God, aren't Snappy's reviews overponcified shite? :D

Are you talking about the final part of CD1?

This is the main reason I wanted to participate in this round. The articles aren't much fun to read if you don't know the songs.


Final CD1 reviews PM'ed.

Snappy, reviews have been pimmed to you.

Three days? God he's a tough bitch to write for.

OK I'll do them tomorrow if possible.

I just noticed that I agreed 100% with Iain; Last Stop: This Town is a brilliant song.

And Shakey: it’s after they were miserable, you fool (if by miserable you mean Electro-shock Blues).

The Shaker
28-11-2002, 14:59:47
Yeah I realised that after I'd written it.
Oh well, mistakes are here to haunt us forever.

Electro-shock blues was a totally miserable album :)

So what Gillian Welch album should I buy?

Sean
28-11-2002, 15:01:37
Bah, I found it quite uplifting.

Scabrous Birdseed

Am I the only person who thought the Eels song was a crap take-off of that Grease song with some meaningless blathering on top done insensitively and in a really boring way? It was shit. I mean, even TOK's "Money To Burn" (which nicks the same backing) is better. And I don't particularly like that either.

Sean
28-11-2002, 15:17:03
It certainly sounds that way.

Hmm I've got most of the tracks from 'time the revelator' which Everything is free is off, for evaluation you understand. I'll sort you out a copy.

I might as well order it. I can't steal her music, not after she tells me to sing it myself. :D
