for we must have music
Looking back at what I listened too in 2019 it appears the random algorithm in my music player has a large bias to the Del Vikings.
More representative The Motors make the top five tracks with a pukka pop song.
But op of the tracks was from a little more recently: Frog by ハイスピード瞬き.
Trying to sort out anything else is somewhat thwarted by the bands with the most releases coming high up by law of averages. And having combined the entire Django Rheinhardt Chronolgoical series into one album of 300 tunes blots out all other contenders.
I’m hanging on a bit for the best of this year’s releases as I wouldn’t want to be caught out by any late comers.
Bugger. Neil Innes has died.
“I’ve suffered for my music and now it’s your turn”.
Another in the occasional series.
Possibly the only successful attempt at finding a sympathetic setting for the Korg Hatsune Miku guitar pedal.
As played by Joe Gore.
I’m only about half a year late in realising there’s a new Nils Lofgren album out which amongst over tracks has a half a dozen he wrote with Lou Reed back in the day. This isn’t one of them. I do like the backing singers.
Nice to see the rarely appreciated Strat middle pickup to the fore.
It isn’t real rock ‘n’ roll without a glitter curtain.
Very convenient if the singer fancies a quick pint during the guitar solo.
Very basic tactical error by the audience who have fallen for a classic pincer movement. (Our heroes at five minutes in).
Guitarists to this day argue over the correct type of towel to capture the Danny Gratton sound.
Copenhagen Jazz Festival, 27th October 1968.
This century is immeasurably poorer for its dearth of bagpipe guitar.
