Will be posting music and such. Not necessarily whatever I'm listening to at the moment but music (and maybe books, films etc) that's part of my personal canon.

This is a track from my all time favorite Lydon record, PIL's Flowers of Romance

Cheers!


This, from my favorite Bowie album, is a killer track and great choice of video too, a German cult film in which both Bowie and this track appear.

The perfect SY song: abrasive, dissonant guitars, caveman drumming, Kim on vocals. To me it's pure, uncut postpunk though some say it's a precursor of riot grrrl (wonder what Marie thinks)

The sound and vibe are not very riot grrrl (and the feminist side of the lyrics doesn't feel like typical riot grrrl either) but all music with an attitude that empowers women is akin to riot grrl of course! And sonic youth inspired bands like Sleater-Kinney for a reason. The song rules btw

Sure does

Portishead is a band whose famous debut album I've always liked a lot but it also kinda was "yet another classic" from a genre that was long dead by the time I learned of it. Nothing prepared me for Third in 2008, which became one of my all time favorites and made me fall in love anew with the first two records.

When this started playing on MTV at the gym I was literally hypnotized

Hell yes! In the years since I first heard it Third has also found a rightful place among my all-time favourite albums.
There are not many groups I can think of who after nearly 10 years absence from recording can totally reinvent themselves stylistically and be even better for it, but somehow they managed it.

Yeah I can't think of precedents for that. I just hope they do it at least one more time!

Of their 90s output I've been returning to these two in particular recently

The first and greatest of Eno's many Can-inspired pieces?

NIKOLAI KARETNIKOV was one of the most talented of that rich generation of Soviet composers (including Alfred Schnittke, Sofia Gubaidulina and Edison Denisov) who came to maturity in the years immediately following the death of Stalin. Like his friends and colleagues, Karetnikov profited from the slightly greater freedom of the period of the Khrushchev Thaw that enabled him to make the acquaintance of something of the vast swathes of Western music from which Soviet musicians had been almost entirely cut off since the Stalinist clamp-down in the early Thirties.

One of the most adventurous Soviet symphonic works in the 1960s, it is a bleak single-movement dodecaphonic symphony structured into five continuous sections
