micshazam and windsock i feel so welcome now.

well i guess that i think you were supposed to ask me things afterwards [that is in case you actually want new people in here and arent content just to hang out with others you already know] anyway i ll ask some questions myself. i began writing and more questions kept popping so i ll number them.

so what about music?

1. been to any good concerts lately?
2. do your ears sometimes hurt nowadays? [mine are beginning to do]
have you considered using earplugs?
3. what are your 3 favorite 2018 albums? what record was the most dissapointing?
4. do you liked the last spiritualized album? you think he kinda repeats himself? or is this exactly the point?
5.what about the beak> album?
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?
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]
8. whats your favorite tom waits 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.
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?
11. do you listen to the actual radio or some kind of internet radio or podcast or whatever?
12. name 3 musical sites you like to visit.
13. do you spend some money in music-related stuff? how? how many?
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?
15. do you actively play an instrument? in a band or orchestra or in a quartet or smth?
16. do you like beeing asked questions? about almost any subject? why? do es it make you feel important?
17. you sometimes sing when you take a bath? when you dont?
18. do you read actual muzic magazines or fanzines sometimes?
19. will it kinda bother you if i dont put a question number 20 and leave it at 19? are you 100% sure?

please dont start answering as micshazam and windshock did above, although i guess that that would be impossible and also that currently i am adding fuel to the fire

also excuse my english, i am proud to say i am a 100% self taught english-speaker but of course the whole outcome is far from perfect.

seeya!

Latest was February last year, where I saw Kishi Bashi at a hole-in-the-wall venue in Tokyo. Yes, it was a glorihole.

2. do your ears sometimes hurt nowadays? [mine are beginning to do]

Not really. I never blast music, though, because I want to enjoy my music all my life.

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

공중도둑 [Mid-Air Thief] - 무너지기 (Crumbling), All Traps on Earth - A Drop of Light, and Koenji Hyakkei - Dhorimviskha. Disappointing? That Father John Misty garbage.

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

Nah. I'm past that band now.

5.what about the beak> album?

Who?

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?

Nope. Yep.

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]

Cuckoldry.

8. whats your favorite tom waits album?

...fuck. Good question. Honestly can't answer that.

9. do you consider reggae to be a fully legit kind of music, or kinda 'inferior'?

Sure. I guess.

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 don't stream. I have to have it in digital or physical format or I don't listen to it.

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

No.

12. name 3 musical sites you like to visit.

musicbanter, rym, r/letstalkmusic

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

I buy vinyl. I spend only Christmas money on them.

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?

Yeah. I get to teach a course on the history of rock & roll.

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

Acoustic guitar, and I suck at it.

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

I'm a full-blown self-actualized narcissist.

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

Never when bathing, often when not.

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

lol no

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

19 is a good number.

Zhanteimi

thanks for the answers.
i really envy you cause you get to teach rock n roll history.
and how come? is this part of scool? or university course or what?

you in tokyo? wow. distant. i dont know much about japanese music, classic or modern except: i went to see mono live a couple months ago. so-so. i heard last years kikagaku moyo record-boring, acid mothers temple-hell yeah! i really like em. and the day before yesterday i heard a band called 水玉消防団 [i m copying-pasting of course-i hope its the right thing i copied) the album translates to "Red Petals Full In The Sky"
i m not sure what i thought of it. for sure i ll hear it again a couple times.

i also think you should give spiritualized a 2nd chance.

I was just joking. A lot of new posters just leave one comment and disappear, so I don't take it too seriously.

I'm gonna give you some real answers. Just gonna pick some of the questions.

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


No, but I've learned my lesson already as I have tinnitus. Use plugs. Don't even consider not using plugs if you're going to loud shows.

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

The new Medina album was disappointing because it does nothing new whatsoever.

I have 36 albums from last year, so it's hard to pick. Most were good.
Current favorites include:

Barbara Morgenstern - Unschuld und Verwüstung
Arkona - Khram
Hop Along - Bark Your Head Off Dog
Neko Case - Hell-On
and
Mitra Sumara - Tahdig

But I'm still working on chewing through all of that music.

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

I checked it out back when everyone seemed to talk about it on the internet. Wasn't really my cup of tea. I didn't really get what was so special about it. Seemed kinda bland to me.

8. whats your favorite tom waits album?

Not a big fan, but if I had to pick one, it would be Small Change.

9. do you consider reggae to be a fully legit kind of music, or kinda 'inferior'?

Why wouldn't it be legit? It's pretty limited, but so are lots of other highly specific genres, like 12 bar blues, death metal, rockabilly or gospel.

A reggae artist I like would be Hollie Cook.

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?

CDs on my stereo, Spotify, youtube and ripped .mp3 files on my computer.
Planning on buying a record player some day.

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

I don't like radio. But I do sometimes listen to podcasts, but not actually music podcasts. Just interviews and such.

12. name 3 musical sites you like to visit.

Allmusic's new albums and editor's choice sections.
A random mish mash of other sites I swing by on occasion, but I don't have any favorites outside of Allmusic.

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

Lots and lots of CDs... I get many of them cheap, but it costs me some money for sure.

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

A couple times a year, I borrow some issues of Froots magazine at the library to catch up with some folk artists I wouldn't have found otherwise.

"I was just joking. A lot of new posters just leave one comment and disappear, so I don't take it too seriously." ok!

36 albums!!!!
i kept some notes last year and i ve heard around 50 albums total. and lets say for another 50 i have a pretty good idea about.. and many of them i heard by the end of the year when reading various year-end-lists and at some point deciding to make a 2018-songs mixtape...
36 favorites for one year is too much for me! maybe the decade

about reggae its an impression i get when talking to people about reggae, they sometimes treat it like its...i dunno, inferior.

"Lots and lots of CDs" im kinda happy about that answer. seems that nobody cares about cds nowadays

do you liked old spiritualized records? spacemen3 ?

havent heard the albums you mentioned but i m thinking i ll give neko case a try.. or maybe should i start elsewhere (i never heard a neko case album)

hey you re from denmark!(?) for some reason i anticipated that almost everyone in here would be americans but this far i have 0/2

Yeah, I'm from Denmark. Most current members are actually Americans though.

I haven't actually heard any old Spiritualized albums, so I don't know if I would like any of the older ones better. Maybe!

As far as Neko Case goes, two albums that would be a great place to start are:

Furnace Room Lullaby


Blacklisted


I feel like they represent a lot of what her music is all about while also being a couple of her very best albums.
