    I look forward to having a listen later ta. Lying on the couch with a glass of stout and my daughter is reading. Any loud music and she will hide my beer or belt me or both. The belting I can live with.

    From the 1975 High voltage album (Aus release only), first one made it into 74 Jailbreak which was realeased in the early 80's?



    edit: All songs from 74 Jailbreak bar Jailbreak where from the 75 high voltage LP. (bit of useless trivia there for ye :angelic:)

    I heard them live at my local high school in about 1975. You name it they toured it -every local footy club, high school, town hall city and rural-you name it.
    They did really tour everywhere. 'Long way to the top' was no exageration by them.
    Jailbreak is one of my ten favourite songs of all time. Cheesy costumes and ALL.

    I go through regular cycles of listening to Fripp. Strange guy but an incredibly creative guitarist.

    Lucky git! But then in 75 I was only 1 :D. I have to admit although it was Brain Johnson I first heard singing it wasn't long before I realised that Bon was the man. They gave an extra song on some of their early LP's in Aus which didn't make the international release :(.
    Like this from Dirty Deeds...

    & this somewhat funny song from Let there be Rock

    'Back in black' is critically regarded as the second greatest Oz album ever.
    Poor old Bon wrote the whole thing and never got to sing on it.

    Why is it when I listen to this I get an urge to run to the shop for some lucozade? :biggrin:

    Thought it had to be Baker street! Now there's a riff on the sax that's hard to shake.

    Don't know too much of him. Shall do a big listen on YT tomorrow after my walk. Where should I start my listening?

    Hmmm not sure yet. Will need some more listens.
    Ed Kuepper tickle your fancy?

    Off one hell of an album.

    With 50 years of music to choose from, that's not an easy question and of course it depends on your tastes.
    But that said... He's most associated with King Crimson, who have been through many changes and a variety of musical genres. My favourite is the album Starless and Bible Black, though most would argue with that.
    (King Crimson YT channel here.)
    I really like his solo album, Exposure.
    Some of his best work, though, is with other people.
    There's the Brian Eno albums Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy and Another Green World.
    His work with David Bowie on Scarey Monsters (and the famous guitar line on Heroes).
    With Talking Heads on Fear of Music.
    And my wife's favourite, with David Sylvian, especially the live album(s) Damage.
    For something poppier, the League of Gentlemen's Thrang Thrang Gozinbulx.
    He's also done a series of semi-ambient albums that he classifies as soundscapes, and the proto-ambient album No Pussyfooting with Brian Eno.
    Finally, he plays on one track by your fellow Australian, Nick Cave, the Grinderman B side Super Heathen Child:

    Ta. I have a passing knowledge of the KC days and some Eno collaborations but that's about it.
    I shall pop into the YT channel tomorrow and have a listen. Always good to expand the musical horizons.
    Funny you should mention David Sylvian-was watching Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence the other night with his his erstwhile musical partner and remembering this song.

    Nothing like a bit of fiddle. Some bouzouki or mandolin would be nice too. Will have a good listen when I get home.
    Edit --been home and had a listen, send some more my way boyo.

    RIP. Lovely Day was probably my favourite of his.

    This thread is moving very fast. Is that as an antidote to cabin fever or is it just I've not logged in a while?

    'Covid-19 Lockdown Blues
    The only way out is through

    A wraithlike peril spread across our seven seas
    Empty shelves in barren streets

    Confined domestic quarantine
    How the itching for lost touch is deafening

    Covid-19 Lockdown Blues'


    I really, really, really love Iceage.
