Hi, ziggywas! Welcome to MB

I love "Walking with Jesus" and "Cop shoot cop", but sometimes I think Spiritualized are a bit lazy or are catering too much to their stoned admirers, so a lot of their later stuff sounds bland to me.

Sorry to mention it, but you're doing the whole intro thing wrong, because we're supposed to be asking the questions and then you tell us a bit about yourself. Are you some kind of rebel, to be doing things so backwards?

What are your fave genres? Any music you really hate? If you had to name one band as the bestest best of all the bests, which would it be?

And congrats by the way on your English - it's really good.

hey lisnaholic and unitron, thanks for the welcome!
as before you came a not-so-welcoming comitee i started to ask the questions my self sorry didnt mean to rebel against the established order )

lisnaholic although i disagree with what you say about spiritualized i consider it to be a fair critique. cop shoot cop and lord are both favorites, in their top-5 in my opinion.

favorite genres and some bands:
alternative rock may it rest in peace: girls against boys, electrelane, pj harvey,mogwai,
some kinds of electronic music. i love boards of canada, couple records by b.fleischmann, burial, massive attack, dj shadow and the likes.
some kinds of hiphop music: defjux, anticon, roots manuva, RTJ, dj signify.
reggae also, the more "dubby" things, lee perry etc
jazz sometimes (bill evans!) , also jazz-hihop or jazz-electronic fusion.
well thats about it!

super-fav band?
when i was 11 the beatles!
when i was 17 the Smashing pumpkins1
when i was 23 godspeed you black emperor!
now i m 40 and i cant answer that easily
i love tom waits after swordfishtrombones, the beatles, Nick Cave, some Neil Young tracks are amongst my all-time favorites, godspeed! are probably the best band i ve seen perform live. i dunno i think i ll leave it ananswered!

Last but not least yes i hate a genre but you wouldnt be familiar with it, its a kind of "pop" music thats kinda popular in my country and you can't avoid. it will attack you in places you cant escape (like the bus). its in decline now so its not that bad anymore but it will be decades before we ll be safe from it

so how about you?
will you do my question-list or will you tell me some (other) things about yourselves?

Good to see another Anticon fan! Also, to answer your questions

1. been to any good concerts lately?

Not lately, but I saw Merzbow and Prurient about a month ago. Super intense and fun. Hoping to catch a Stephanie Richards quintet performance of the month as well as a Peter Evans & friends show that look awesome.

2. do your ears sometimes hurt nowadays? [mine are beginning to do]
have you considered using earplugs?


Mine are definitely beginning to hurt after overexposure to loud music, plus I was already prone to wax buildup. I'm a religious member of the earplug crew.

3. what are your 3 favorite 2018 albums? what record was the most dissapointing?

Top 3:
John Coltrane - Both Directions at Once
Earl Sweatshirt - Some Rap Songs
Julia Holter - Aviary

Most disappointing was Code Girl by Mary Halvorson but I think that that's because I didn't give it a fair chance. I checked out some of Amirtha Kidambi's (the vocalist from Code Girl) stuff with the Elders and I enjoyed it quite a bit, so maybe I'll be more familiar with the language of the album than on my first couple of listens.

4. do you liked the last spiritualized album? you think he kinda repeats himself? or is this exactly the point?

I'm familiar with Spaceman 3's stuff but not too much with Spiritualized. I thought that the new album was pretty lush and atmospheric.

5.what about the beak> album?

I thought that it was slick but underwhelming in the light of L.A. Playback.

6. would you pay to see iggy pop live now(this summer actually) in his 70's? do you think its true he wont make another album?

I'd pay like 20 bucks. I don't mind if he makes another album either, wasn't a fan of his recent efforts.

7. why you think hiphop dominates nowadays? do you think it dominates? has it gotten better? [i think not] has it more to do with clothes and lifestyle in general than with music? [youknow teenagers wearing hoodies and all that]

Hip hop dominates because there are listeners who have been exposed to it for their whole lives. I think that hip hop is evolving in many positive ways, but it does seem like hip hop is moving away from lyricism which I'm a little disappointed about (but not crushed). That's not hip hop dying though, that's evolution. Plus the lyrical **** is out there in spades so who am I to bitch about it.

8. whats your favorite tom waits album?

Big Time

9. do you consider reggae to be a fully legit kind of music, or kinda 'inferior'? [if the answer is inferior may you burn in hell.

There's some passion in the roots of the genre but it's devolved into self parody.

10. how do you listen to music? i mean spotify, mp3+winamp in a computer [its what i mostly do] or you play records or just youtube all day long or what?

Mostly streaming but if I'm kicking back at home I'm more likely to throw on one of my records.

11. do you listen to the actual radio or some kind of internet radio or podcast or whatever?

I listen to 88.3 our jazz station sometimes.

12. name 3 musical sites you like to visit.

Musicbanter, Rateyourmusic, and Bandcamp.

13. do you spend some money in music-related stuff? how? how many?

I buy vinyl and instruments. How many? Too many according to my wallet.

14. does your profession or studies or something that has to do with your 'main occupation' lets call it has to do something with music?

Unfortunately not but I'd like to open a venue some day.

15. do you actively play an instrument? in a band or orchestra or in a quartet or smth?

I play several instruments. Currently jamming with a few people in a duo format but not really in any band right now.

16. do you like beeing asked questions? about almost any subject? why? do es it make you feel important?

I feel too important to be questioned.

17. you sometimes sing when you take a bath? when you dont?

Sure I sing.

18. do you read actual muzic magazines or fanzines sometimes?

Not since I was a kid reading mags for guitar tablature.

19. will it kinda bother you if i dont put a question number 20 and leave it at 19? are you 100% sure?

Sure, I'll answer a few questions. And I do read quite fast. I'm an English teacher, reading is kinda my thing.

1. been to any good concerts lately?

Nope. My last "concert" was a house show put on by some friends of mine that included my buddy Matt (who is an excellent rapper) and my other friend Matt who DJs and did weird house stuff, mostly. It was super fun, but I don't have the time or money for concerts nowadays.

3. what are your 3 favorite 2018 albums? what record was the most dissapointing?

1. Tomb Mold, Manor of Infinite Forms
2. John Coltrane, Both Directions at Once
3. Brandi Carlile, By the Way, I Forgive You

The Death Grips album was a letdown. It had some bangers on it and did some interesting things, but didn't grab me. Maybe I've lost interest in them.

6. would you pay to see iggy pop live now(this summer actually) in his 70's? do you think its true he wont make another album?

I would pay to see him, his early work is some of my favorite music of all time. I don't care if he doesn't record again.

7. why you think hiphop dominates nowadays? do you think it dominates? has it gotten better? [i think not] has it more to do with clothes and lifestyle in general than with music? [youknow teenagers wearing hoodies and all that]

Hip hop dominates because hip hop is ****ing incredible as a genre and cultural movement, and it speaks the language of an oppressed people group better than anything else right now. The aesthetic of the genre, which the fashion, is an integral part of its expression, and should not be looked down upon.

8. whats your favorite tom waits album?

Diamond Dogs.

That's all I have time for.

1. been to any good concerts lately?

Haven't been to a concert in years unfortunately.

2. do your ears sometimes hurt nowadays? [mine are beginning to do]
have you considered using earplugs?


Surprisingly no after years of loud garbage played far too loud.

3. what are your 3 favorite 2018 albums? what record was the most dissapointing?

Don't keep up with current music.

4. do you liked the last spiritualized album? you think he kinda repeats himself? or is this exactly the point?

Haven't heard it. Only heard that one album you know the one.

5.what about the beak> album?

Shrug.

6. would you pay to see iggy pop live now(this summer actually) in his 70's? do you think its true he wont make another album?

No other way I'll ever get to see him so hell yeah.

7. why you think hiphop dominates nowadays? do you think it dominates? has it gotten better? [i think not] has it more to do with clothes and lifestyle in general than with music? [youknow teenagers wearing hoodies and all that]

It serves well as pop music that can appeal across gender and racial lines. Yeah I guess it dominates, definitely in influence. It was never bad but time has introduced ever greater diversity so it's at its most interesting. I guess people looking for a ready made identity might be more about the clothes but other than that nah.

8. whats your favorite tom waits album?

I like Tom Waits but don't listen to him enough to have a proper opinion of him or a favorite album.

9. do you consider reggae to be a fully legit kind of music, or kinda 'inferior'? [if the answer is inferior may you burn in hell.

Why would it be inferior? I don't much care for a lot of what I've heard but I haven't heard much so I'm not gonna **** on it beyond saying it hasn't grabbed me yet.

10. how do you listen to music? i mean spotify, mp3+winamp in a computer [its what i mostly do] or you play records or just youtube all day long or what?

I like to have a vast, ever-growing library of digital music where I don't have to worry about buffering. I'm too broke to really collect physical music on any grand scale like I do with downloading.

11. do you listen to the actual radio or some kind of internet radio or podcast or whatever?

Nah. I only use the radio for NPR on occasion or to fall asleep to Coast-to-Coast AM.

12. name 3 musical sites you like to visit.

RYM for new music, blogs in general for downloads, and Bandcamp to check newer stuff.

13. do you spend some money in music-related stuff? how? how many?

Not nearly as much as I used to. The very occasional album but I'll throw a bit of money down at Bandcamp.

14. does your profession or studies or something that has to do with your 'main occupation' lets call it has to do something with music?

lol nah

15. do you actively play an instrument? in a band or orchestra or in a quartet or smth?

Nah.

16. do you like beeing asked questions? about almost any subject? why? do es it make you feel important?

I like talking about myself, yes.

17. you sometimes sing when you take a bath? when you dont?

I love whistling and sing under my breath at work to pass the time.

18. do you read actual muzic magazines or fanzines sometimes?

Nah. Used to read Metal Hammer but there's not much to interest me there now that my tastes have become super duper hella sophisticated yo.

19. will it kinda bother you if i dont put a question number 20 and leave it at 19? are you 100% sure?

... A bit.
