A singer-songwriter I've always liked, from Small Blue Thing to New York Is a Woman. This is the opening and closing tracks from her big 90s album 99.9F°, produced by the brilliant Mitchell Froom

One of those great bands promoted by John Peel who didn't make it past the first album.

Quote:
Stump were an Irish-English indie/experimental/rock group consisting of Mick Lynch (vocals), Rob McKahey (drums), Kev Hopper (bass) and Chris Salmon (guitar).Their music has been described as a mixture of Captain Beefheart and The Fall
This is their tribute to American tourists in London

One of many the great albums from the alumni of the COUM Transmissions art collective, or COUMers for short... Coil have always rejected the "industrial" label but it's often described as "industrial psychedelia".

TG were always better than GG Allin but yeah in 2004 they weren't at their sharpest. Still, I like those comeback shows, whenever members of the audience are reduced to involuntary twitching, you know it's the good stuff

From what I've heard, the one area where Gen kinda was surprisingly humble was the actual musicianship. As in, s/he cared more about being a guru/prophet/conceptual artist/cult leader/all round genius and was prepared to acknowledge that others were better at writing songs.

Cosey is cool. It's impressive how much good music the people involved in COUM Transmission went on to make. TG, Chris & Cosey, Coil... jury's still out on Psychic TV, though they're the favorite band of one of my best friends.

Interesting, never thought of it this way. I guess a deep dive into TG is due. As things stand, there are records by Coil and Chris & Cosey that I rate higher than TG.

Yes, Sinatra was held in high esteem by quite a few of the postpunk crowd, including Robert Smith who was a huge fan of his phrasing. The man could really carry a tune...

Anyway, a lil something from my favorite percussionist of the postpunk era

One of Prokofiev's finest piano miniatures played by the most underappreciated of the Soviet piano geniuses

The song whose inclusion in The Silence of the Lambs is responsible for establishing The Fall in the popular imagination as serial killer music, and true Fallheads won't have it any other way

I see, interesting how widely it circulated as a bootleg

TG is one of those bands my first exposure to was a bunch of mp3s downloaded by a friend from soulseek, so I didn't really know what was on official releases and what wasn't.

For some unknown reason, the CD with Lick My Decals Off, Baby (maybe my favorite album of all time) that he burned for me began with the Magic Band's cover of Diddy Wah Diddy, so for me that album had a really upbeat opening
