Horse 'careful'  sasha horse with no name mix  lords it over most of that list..IMO

That or Ohmna.

Here's some of my faves.  I expect Dermo to slate each one since he was appointed Mr. Prog August, 1994 - proceeded by Mr. Prog July Billy Nasty and preceeded by Mr. Prog September John Digweed.  Also, because he hasn't evolved beyond a cro-mangan man stuck in 1995 and not a year later.

The best Sasha production ever, in my opinion

The E tune to define all E tunes!

Tonight's massive lats workout will be fueled by Breeder - The Chain.

I remember discovering this record at a shop in Ottawa of all places (not exactly known for it's progressive house scene) before a gig.  I played it that night and it blew the room up, so I kept hammering it for nearly a year.  It was so different to anything that was out at that time and really defined a forthcoming sound.

Such a great tune!  It's nice hearing Nick Warren haul this one out here and there.

A great time to be going to see the Jays play.  She'll have to explain the rules to you. wink

Seeing as our equivalent weekend is forthcoming, I'll be either at my or my missus' cottage doing absolutely sweet fuck all other than swimming in a lake and lounging about in the sunshine.

Jesus and Mary Chain, The Cure, The Smiths, My Bloody Valentine - some absolutely great bands in the 80s.

Expect you don't like any of them, Loopy, and I'm glad I don't have to share my music tastes with squares like you.

Whilst it's true I'm not too keen on The Smiths, I absolutely love The Cure, dig My Bloody Valentine and don't mind Jesus And The Mary Chain.   I may have not worded it well, but I meant The Cure are a tight band live, but you may as well listen to their albums instead of seeing them live.   They pretty much do the shortage thing and Smith doesn't really interact with the crowd. On the other hand, we also saw The Flaming Lips at the same festival, who I'm not too keen on musically, and they were fantastic live and put on an amazing show.

'The Forest' is a personal fave. The Cure were big with skaters when I was growing up - and goths too I suppose.   Bauhaus are also excellent.

I meant for free through dodgy means Presto.

Or even better, it being leaked and hitting blog sites before release.

Smashy, except all of that takes time.   How would you feel that whatever you do for a living is suddenly expected to be done for free without renumeration?

Im not going to argue the reality. There are many things that happen in this world that are real, but it doesn't mean it's right. We as artists have done a terrible job at showing people the cost of making music. We've let ourselves be robbed by greedy corporate entities that use extortionist business practices. That's a part of the music industry I'd happily change, but I can't tell you just how much I hurts to see my downloads from Beatport sell exactly ONE fucking copy... everyone else downloaded it. At some point many producers and musicians have to wonder what the point is.

I love making music, but spending 40 hours on a track to get that in return is nothing more than an insulting slap in the face.   At least with 'the good ole days' I'd get a $500 advance and shift 1200-1500 units.

Music has become a commodity to be consumed and thrown away now. The free model has cheapened the heart and soul that goes into the making of good art.

Does that mean I could start a new account, upload my entire back catalogue and sit there all day, every day replaying the files over and over again to bump up my quarterly royalty statement?

Sounds like a plan. I'm going to put down a deposit on that holiday home in Martinique right away.

That's happening already on things like Spotify.

This is hardly a surprise.  Soundcloud should be paying for the license and usage of what powers it as a service.  The issue is this cuts into what's already a much smaller chunk of the profit pie when it comes to music, because sadly the end users now think it's free.  That is something the music industry will NOT be able to change.  Finding ways to adapt to that model and monetizing it is the current struggle.

I listen to War on Drugs when I want my Springsteen fix.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one who's found similarities.  Also another great band!

It's Jimmy Fallon who's the massive Springsteen fan.

Filed under Reg.

Conan O'Brien has played live with him on stage several times as well.

I love his stuff personally.  I saw him on the Born In The USA tour in 1984 and he was fanfuckingtastic.

Rock solid live, but fuck me were they ever boring.  They're my missus' favourite band.

Seriously, if you know how to use Reddit just click ion the 'Top' section and read away.   Not everything is hilarious, but that's the Internet for you.

Seriously Matt?!!! I thought you had more sense than that.

This #falseflag bullshit really bothers me.   People treat death differently.  Since her fiance is an anchor, he's well seasoned being in front of cameras and hiding what's on his mind so he convey his message. 

The people who perpetrate this conspiracy bullshit are even more bat shit insane than the shooter.

Just because it's on the Internet doesn't make it true. What qualifications does that guy on YouTube have in criminal investigations and video analysis? That would be a good place to start asking yourself the right questions.

More fascinating insights later.

Useless fact number 1: Indian Rail is the largest employer in the world.

Useless fact number 2: India is the largest English speaking country by population in the world.

Useless fact number 3: Rhouses worked for a radio station.

I don't suppose anyone's got or tried this portable DAC? Seems to get good reviews, but they look a little suspect as if they're written by the manufacturer.

Creative bought out E-MU years ago, and in turn acquired all of their developers and technology as well.  I still use an E-MU Audio Production Studio sound card from the late 1990s that still to this day has some amazing digital to analog converters.
