Went to see Wu Tang at Brixton last night, canny gig with a lot of classics...

Think even Steers will enjoy this one, samples The Charmels.

I do like some of Cream's stuff actually, along with Jack White my favourite white blues purveyors



But this is really more my kind of thing

I've been off Hip Hop a long while, but the brilliant 12 reasons to Die is an album worthy of a listen or 5.

Tongue-in-cheek comic book theatrics rather then 'gangsta' rap from the WU

Steers - you might prefer the Instrumental cd - but nicely well done Adrian Younge. :greetings-clapyellow:

Remember it aye. Decent enough pop song I suppose, not really my thing.

Don't mind a bit of Toots and the Maytals though. Seen them a few times at small festival type things and they do a great show. Although I don't know a lot about rocksteady/ska and I don't often like reggae.

Listening to a genuinely great voice is one of my favourite things in music. This lass is up there with the very best in my book :bow-blue:

I hadn't heard it but aye I do, liked it on one listen. Haven't really followed them since I was mentioning them on here. I'll have to get their third album which I see this is off, but I did really like Arc. Interesting band I think.

I came across them as I was trying to find out the tune from BT Sport's football coverage which I find catchy.

Seem a decent band.

A lot of their stuff is catchy aye, they do like a hook. But they are doing songs with a bit of substance rather than formulaic mass-appeal shite. They're bright lads and very interested in the concept of 'pop' music.

Prefer the singer in the low register like, think he should do a bit less of the high but he prefers it apparently. This one's my favourite of theirs:

Aretha Franklin deed. Absolutely one of the great soul divas but I hate the 'undisputed queen of soul' tag her fans attach to her. Gladys Knight is at least her equal, Whitney Houston till she blew it had just as good a voice. I personally like Tammi Terrell's lighter vocals just as much, likewise Saundra Mallet of The Elgins. Then there's Etta James, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday from the jazz and blues tradition but all equally part of the 'r&b' story.

Still, fucking great singer. Like most of the greats learned her craft doing gospel and had music and rhythm in her bones Smoke I prefer her up tempo and funky myself, not really into the ballads.
