14 Oct 2012, 18:09 de DetoxScissionAs with my previous creations for different genres ('While You Were Sleeping' & 'For Funerals To Come'), this set of compilations will be found on the main blogspot page where I keep every set. I've only completed one, 12 track set thus far, but there will definitely be a good amount more. I try to stray away from singles or hits and go with songs that I really, truly enjoy... this isn't some weak set of compilations that are just random track choices (And believe me, i've seen a lot of those). For anyone thinking that i'm doing this for the wrong reasons, you are incorrect. I'm a fan and i'm trying to deliver to possible fans of the style. I make zero money from any of this and i'm using up chunks of my time to try and help out bands and musicians who matter to me and who I feel got the rough end of the stick. As well, even though most of the bands in question are no longer part of the active community, it's still worth spreading the name and legacy they left behind. …

23 Ago 2011, 21:44 de amodelofcontrolAnother bit of a retrospective this week, as I finally get ’round to covering the fact that MTV turned 30 years old on 01-August. As the NME noted a few months ago, whatever happened to the MTV of old? For all its faults – not least seemingly moving away from what was the whole point in the first place towards reality shows (which it started with The Real World) – MTV did drive the use of the music video. It pushed artists to produce ever more outlandish, expensive and perhaps ridiculously conceited concepts, but crucially also gave some bands exposure that they would never have otherwise had.
And perhaps the tide is turning back after all, with MTV finally making a tentative return to the channel we used to love, with the reappearance of 120 Minutes and Beavis and Butthead, in the US at least. Here’s hoping that MTV remember that those of us in the UK and Europe would love to see their return, too. For those of you wanting to reminisce a bit: just check this awesome site with a full 120 Minutes archive and playlists too.

27 Abr 2010, 19:56 de amodelofcontrolSo after a couple of weeks of work, here's my top twenty albums of the 90s.
There is again a Spotify playlist accompaniment to it, which is this time missing four entries, which with it being the top twenty is a little frustrating...
My top albums of the 90s part one: 100-81
My top albums of the 90s part two: 80-61
My top albums of the 90s part three: 60-41
My top albums of the 90s part four: 40-21
Type O Negative
Gothic, doomy metal dirges that actually have some semblance of an understanding of irony, and are on first name terms with "Mr Tune"? It's a wonder that they got away with this, but really, this album is still bloody marvellous. Even if the cover of Neil Young track Cinamon girl, in retrospect, isn't very good, the rest of it still worth listening to (Note: this was already in my top twenty long before the news broke that Pete Steele had died during April).
Velvet Acid Christ
Fun With Knives
23 Ene 2010, 7:59 de pessimysticaAhhh, the early 90s... before cds started to take over, & before I even had access to MTV, you know you were addicted to waiting until a good song came on the radio in the early 90s & pressed RECORD on that outdated thing called the tape player ;-) I might add that i was usually playing Nintendo while listening to these when i probably should've been doing homework *grin*... &/or (God forbid) riding the darn school bus & listening to my WALKMAN!!! bahaha... Here're some of my favorites (in no particular order) that i eventually replaced with mp3s. These songs are still special to me cuz unlike downloading anything at your finger tips these days, you actually got to know individual songs a lot better & grew attached to them. I never grew tired of them, unlike too many overplayed radio singles that (mostly) aren't listed here. This isn't necessarily 1 of those "oh yah, i used to really like this song" moments... I still like these songs. It ain't nostalgic if you never left ;-)

22 Abr 2008, 17:19 de amodelofcontrolAs promised last week, here is the second part of my favourite albums of the 90s. Same rules as before, this time the list takes a more metallic edge, perhaps. These ten are in chronological order, just about, by the way.
So, where to start? With a band that are almost impossible to categorise, I guess...
White Light From the Mouth of Infinity
Back at the beginning of the nineties, Swans were beginning to mellow out. Burnt by their disastrous major-label experience with The Burning World, they retreated back out of this and recorded what is in my opinion the best album they ever released. While there is very little of the brutality of earlier albums, the cutting, sneering lyrics of despair and hatred remained allied with a fantastic collection of songs. I've even managed to find a couple of versions of tracks from this album on YouTube, too: a much changed live version of Song for Dead Time, and then an extraordinary solo take of Failure from just last year.
Faith No More
1 Abr 2008, 13:44 de Teishi1. How did you get into 31?: The Clay People
Got a recommendation here on Last.fm and just randomly picked up their first and latest albums. Good stuff. Thank you Last.fm
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?: Psyclon Nine
Either Lamb of God or The Feeding.
3. What's your favourite lyric by 29?: Madrugada
4. What is your favourite album by 49?: Melotron
5. How many albums by 13 do you own?: Iron Lung Corp
They've only put out two. And I got both. More please?
6. What is your favourite song by 50?: Curve
Probably "Coming Up Roses".
7. Is there a song by 4 that makes you sad?: The Shamen
Re:Evolution possibly, since it always reminds me how stupid and narrow-minded us humans can be. But really, this is uplifting happy-music.
8. What is your favourite song by 15?: Escape With Romeo
"Can This World Break Me?". Just a beautiful track.
9. What is your favourite song by 5?: Front Line Assembly
"The Blade" - it's simply classic.
