24 Sep 2005, 16:29 by NamastevpIf you are into artists like U2, Depeche Mode, Coldplay and Radiohead, check out the Los Angeles band, Solarcade. They've even been compared to Queensryche. In January of 2006, Solarcade will be releasing a brand new EP which will contain a rockin' cover of U2's All I Want Is You. Check 'em out!
24 Sep 2005, 10:05 by IanARMy track-tagged Pop Rock station http://static.last.fm/matt/tinyradio.gif has just come on-stream. To give an idea of what to expect, from it, the first ten track played were:
Let's Pretend We're Bunny Rabbits
Do You Feel Loved
Na Na Na Na Naa
Here Comes The Sun
I don't see Pop-Rock as a very strongly defined genre and will probably split this out, into sub-genre (probably be decade), once I've tagged sufficient tracks.
The tracks played, above, were from the initially featured artists: A.C. Newman, Auf Der Maur, David Bowie, Depeche Mode, Garbage, Jack Off Jill, Kaiser Chiefs, Kings of Leon, Pulp, Seal, Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel, Sting, The Beatles, The Magnetic Fields, The Police, The Rasmus, The Velvet Underground, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, U2
Suggestions for more streamable tracks to add (send recommendations) and constructive criticism of what's included (post a comment), are welcomed.
21 Sep 2005, 07:44 by yippy2222Just bought an iPod so I figured I might as well keep track of my most played songs on here. I enjoy all good music, some of my favorites including Radiohead, U2, The White Stripes, Sigur Ros, and many others are that I find just as enjoyable!
20 Sep 2005, 01:10 by andrewbilesI always seem to find things out a little late. I don't know whether it's because I know the wrong people or just don't pay much attention anymore, but The Olympic Hopefuls just came on my iTunes (stop thinking your dirty thoughts!) and it's been a while - to say the least - since I last listened to them so I thought I'd check to see if their album was available in the UK yet on Amazon. Turns out it's still not (not that it bothers me as I've had my copy since it's release - oh yeah). Anyway... I venture onto their site only to find that there's been a name change! They're now just The Hopefuls. I don't know if this means their album is now a rarity and when they make it huge (which they damn well better) I will have a nice expensive album in my hands, but why people like the Olympics (the sporting people) have to push bands away from using their name I can't understand. It's stupid. I want to copyright my name so no one can ever name their child Andrew Biles and if they do I'm going to sue them. …

17 Sep 2005, 13:18 by b_qStarted: Saturday, rainy weather. Good to have a home. Currently feeding audioscrobbler with another 50 random tracks that amaroK selected out of the nearly 5000 songs. There is 2 GB of Led Zeppelin and around 1 GB of each Thin Lizzy, Spocks Beard, Dream Theater, Ayreon and Pink Floyd. Followed by quite some Jethro Tull, Deep Purple, Skyclad, U2, Queen, Pain of Salvation and Michael Dickes.
So it seems I'm one of those classic rock types. I have rather a heavy metal record, but if you have already lots of Helloween, Gamma Ray and Co, there is not so much need to buy even more of it. Occasionally I get myself a new record, likeMorgana Lefay, The Hellacopters, Gotthard, System of a Down, Iommi, The Mars Volta or Bruce Dickinson.
That's enough for now, maybe someone knows Rémingway, a french Band I saw pendant la fête de la musique dans Grenoble, Place de Verdun (je crois).
I bet we encounter parts.
(I between couterparts).
Space isn't nothing!
17 Sep 2005, 10:23 by BrittusWith an average of 64 songs per day I celebrate today the first year of scrobbling. So, does this large profile already represent my current music taste entirely? Hardly so, I'd say.
Yes, I own many CD's of U2 and R.E.M., which explains their top positions (on my pc I play predominantly random tracks from my collection), but they aren't amongst the artist whose CD's I play in my car at the moment.
Some changes I expect in the next year: El Tattoo del Tigre will drop out of the top 10; I recommend their live performance, but the CD's just don't fit my personal taste enough.
Mano Negra, Presidents Of The United States Of America, Placebo, Portishead are expected to climb into the top 50.
And furthermore? Let's scrobble and see.
