    I've been re-listening to Some Friendly by The Charlatans. It's a great album.

    Appreciate the feedback fellas!
    To be honest, I've really enjoyed SLA's suggestion, and working from home has allowed me time to listen to lots of stuff.
    First thing I did when sent home was set up the cd player.

    Todays selection - Price, The Gold Experience

    I have 4 prince albums. 2010 and mother earth are a bit "meh", I need to relisten to them. The other two are symbol, and this one. Symbol has had a couple of listens, but this album is so different from the other 3 for me.
    Firstly, it is sexy and dirty. p control and 319 should be sufficient evidence, but the album oozes sexiness in so many ways.
    It is also completely funk tastic. There is a thread through the album (endorphomachine, we march) of a hard sound.
    The album also shows off Prince's phenomenal guitar abilities (dolphin for example).

    I bopped around the room all morning listening to this. I feel that I have neglected it by not listening to it for so long.

    There may well be others here who are prince fans. If so, what albums do you recommend exploring by him?

    T-Dan, Nine Inch Nails early output is superb. Pretty Hate Machine is a really good teenage angsty album. Broken rules (Fixed, it's remixed version is also really good). Downward Spiral and The Fragile are both great, if a little self indulgent on occasion.

    Their later stuff is still good. Everything up to Ghosts parts i-iv is pretty good.

    disagree. It is lazy. Mixed race man with guitar reminds me of...the most obvious comparison.

    My instinct when I posted was that a more apt comparison would potentially have been Prince (which may have affected todays listening choice), owing to the multi-instrumentalist abilities of them both, as well as the varied styles.

    Hendrix was merely a case of being another non white rock dude. imo of course.

    He peaked very early, and there was a lot of hype around him he failed to match.
    I've never heard Let Love Rule, but it is supposed to be decent.
    Are You Gonna Go My Way was a decent single, but weak album. I gave up after.

    did source tag codes - trail of dead for a second time on tim's listening party thingy. the band screwed up their attendance first time round

    a great album, plenty of loud fair bit of quiet and interesting interludes. it still rocks

    i missed the dreamtime - cult night

    soul mining - the the got delayed as matt johnson was in hospital. posted a nasty photo on twitter of his wound from a throat op. ick!

    still no date for a chameleons album night. not sure what's happening and maybe past acrimony between band members has scuppered it.
    it is not that I have no past. rather, it continually fragments on the terrible and vivid ephemera of now.

    Have you just activated a Russian sleeper cell as that sentence makes no sense whatsoever
    Why they will qualify: Nuno Espirito Santo is actually a tactical genius.

    Waiting for a replacement wind screen and popped on frizzle fry by Primus
    I think I had the album on loop in my mid to late teen years.
    Still a great album in my eyes!

    Gun - Swagger
    https://open.spotify.com/album/4otuhE6BoXmrxa12vW6deO

    Ah, some fecker wandered off with my copy of gallus. My mate Matt was a big fan, and was dead excited when they announced a gig at the wulfrun, so we had to go. Got the album prior to the show.
    Proper british rock and roll record really. testament to it being the height of brit pop that the album sold fairly well.

    There's a fair few riffs on here, with Stand in Line and Find My Way building into Word Up - covering the cameo classic. A track still widely held as a great cover.
    Don't say its over seems a bit cheesy now, but I loved it back in the day.
    The rest of the album flows really well. Something Worthwhile/Losing You/Crying Over You are 3 solid rock tracks, with One reason and vicious heart winding things down well.
    48 mins of nicely rockin. Made my head nod.

    I haven't heard that album since I was about 16. I thought it was great back in the day - there have been many, many cover versions of Word Up but Gun's is the best.

    Agreed one of the best covers in recent memory, and thank you LJ for posting a band I've heard of

    Paul Weller - Stanley Road.
    Released at pretty much the peak of britpop, this hasn't been played for a bit in my household.
    Popped the cd on, and....
    well at the risk of getting pelters, actually forgot it was on after about 3 bars of changingman. This album comes across as actually quite bland, MOR, AOR background music.
    I actually forgot it was on. It certainly didn't grab me.
