I had noticed the lack of a music forum here, and the surprising lack of a music thread.

For a pirate tune (and brilliancy in general) I recommend Ween's clasic "The Blarney Stone," from their acclaimed album The Mollusk. If you chance the whole album, don't let the first song throw you. It's fun, but the rest of the album is not nearly as...childish. And if you only want to get one song to test Ween out, make it the mind-blowing "The Argus," from their dazzling album quebec.

Lately I've been listening to a lot of Shearwater, The Shins, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Frank Zappa, and Medeski, Martin and Wood.

On the other side of the music store, I recommend Stravisnky's Les Noces, The Rite of Spring, and L'Histoire du Soldat (without narrator), Brahms' first and third symphonies (especially), all of his string quartets, and the Concerto for Violin, and of course the epic (and generally considered to be the most influential piece of Western music ever written) Beethoven's 9th.

Admin/Mod
Sorry about this.

I had stayed away for a while because things were kind of wonky and now I see you're not happy with the new server.

Bummer.
Sorry about that too.

Let me know if I can help in any way, I sorta have a knack for this kind of thing. ;)

I have been on a week-long Primus kick...Every time I don't listen to them for awhile, it is like being blown away all over again...

As a drummer, I can really appreciate the speed-funk intricacy of the rythym parts.

Les Claypool is a devil on the bass...I really like the drums near the end of this one, and can't help but laugh at the video imagery.

Primus sucks! Primus sucks!

I have every studio album they've released...in fact, though this may date me, when I first bought Frizzle Fry and Sailing the Seas of Cheese, cds were still sold in "longboxes" (along side cassette tapes :P), and I clipped the art from my longboxes and tacked them to the wall like posters.

Herb, the ginseng drummer!

Herb happens to be a friend of the fam. He originally played in a band called Major Lingo, celebrating 25 years, that still plays just blocks from my house every month. Last month the current drummer was recovering from surgery so Tim Alexander sat in for the night. Quite a treat.

And although Herb has that special Jùjú influencing his drumming the real gem of Lingo is Tony Bruno tearin' up a lap steel like you've never heard before.

Listen to three live shows of Major Lingo featuring Tony Bruno on slide guitar.

Lookin' fer pirate music?
Lingo's got a few jigs that'll move yer booty.

After a week of immersion in Alice in Chains and Collective Soul, I gotta say, why the "F" was Nirvana considered THE grunge band?

Don't get me wrong, I like Nirvana...But they were far from the best musicians/songwriters of the genre.


IMO, of course, which is nevertheless never wrong. :)
