8 Sep 2012, 21:09 by joiletjakeIt's Saturday, September 8th, 2012. A date that I just noticed that coincided with my join date here at last.fm and I then remembered that I always write a journal to summarize the past year's statistics.
I will this year's journal short, mainly because that I haven't been around here much the past few months. My music taste have stagnated too now when I think about it. I've been listening to artist like Roy Harper and Django Reinhardt instead of searching for new music.
I some research to refresh my mind and noticed that I've been listening to new (for me at least) music by artists like: Paul Simon, Pete Townshend & Ronnie Lane, Maggie Bell, Stone the Crowes, bob hund and Bad Liquor Pond. Jimmy Page also released two new albums which I listened to quite a bit when they came out. New music from Jimmy Page? In a way it was but I had heard both before. Death Wish II was a remaster and the muddy sound of the bootleg recording of Lucifer Rising was gone (which was both good and bad)…
24 Jul 2012, 18:33 by OnceNefariousI've waited too long to write this. I left off with the discovery of Jimang and Sound Horizon, but so much more has happened since then.
The main one being YAMADA KOSHI!!!
My threshold for awesome is being breached here.... Can't even find the words for some of the great music I've discovered or been recommended....
Yamada Koshi (山田晃士 / Koshi Yamada) releases works under a lot of different names and collaborations (which can be seen in my tags, as I linked above), including Koshi, 山田晃士 Au Bourbier (Koshi Yamada au Bourbier / KOSHI au Bourbier), 山田晃士と泥沼楽団 (Yamada Koshi to Doronuma-Gakudan, 山田晃士&流浪の朝謡 (Koshi Yamada & Rurou No Asautai), ガレージシャンソンショー (Garage Chanson Show). Each album/group is different with sometimes drastically different sound, ranging from really smooth to more upbeat and fun; all in all Yamada Koshi's music seems to fuse a lot of different sounds/styles, like gypsy jazz/jazz manouche/swing, cabaret, chanson. …
13 Feb 2012, 12:18 by thomas10This is an article in which I tried to bundle all the great losses of rock'n roll and modern music. That means all the musicians which are worldwide known and died at young age (before 51 years old). I tried to give a little information about the way they died. Most of the information I got from Wikipedia. When someone thinks I forgot an artist or that the information is incorrect... I'm open for new information.
The list is in order of age of dying
For the artists younger than 37 I'll recommend you Pt 1;
Lhasa de Sela (Lhasa) (1972-2010)
Following a 21-month-long battle with breast cancer, Lhasa died, age 37, on the evening of January 1, 2010, at her home in Montreal.
Rhett Forrester (Riot) (1956-1994)
Murdered. He was shot and killed in Atlanta, Georgia, after he refused to give up his vehicle in an attempted carjacking. The crime has not to date, been solved.

14 Dec 2011, 15:40 by OnlyglebДорогие друзья и все, кто читают эту заметку! Вот и стучится в двери предновогодняя суета, предстоят ещё сложнейшие 2 последние недели года. Чуть ранее я уже начал подводить итоги года. Скоро вы сможете лицезреть мой главный чарт уходящего года - итоговый топ-100 песен. А пока его участники делают свои последние рывки и падения предлагаю ознакомиться с ретро-топом этого года. Здесь и песни, открытые мной в этом году и подзабытые песни, которыми я заслушивался предыдущие годы, и те песни, что я открыл в прошлом году и по инерции слушал в этом. Ну и как говорит какой-нибудь мажор блондинке на заднем сидении машины: "Довольно болтовни, займёмся делом"
220. Yazz and Plastic Population - The Only Way Is Up (1988)

Andy's July show features 3 hours of great new music, including The Horn The Hunt, Epic45, Low, Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat, Alpines, Harrys gym, Atari Teenage Riot, Snowman, PJ Harvey and Stay+ (formerly known as Christian Aids). There's a smattering of older tunes including a very rare New Order 7" single, a classic live session track from The Race and one of The Fall's best ever tunes. Scott picks a Funky Five Minutes and there's even a brief guest appearance from Andy's dad Barry.
Jeff continues to celebrate Dandelion Radio’s five years of broadcasting with a three hour July show and some of his favourite acts that he has featured over the years; Gaggle, Clutter, wolfram wire, The Red Trees, Superman Revenge Squad and Jujuman & the Program.
However July is not all about wallowing in the past as there are some absolute blinding new releases by Boris, Mountaineer, Joker, Seedhill Bruiser, Art Department, CLOUT!, Little Roy and Mountains.
