    The Darkness thread

    i just dug up this corpse to say i saw them live last thursday in LA. they were epic. if you get a chance to catch them on this tour they are still in their prime. The setlist is epic, all the old favs, and helps the new album is pretty frikkin good, and they are playing smallish venues that they are waaayy to good to be playing. http://www.laweekly.com/slideshow/the-darkness-kick-off-their-tour-at-the-fonda-theatre-9310510/45

    Why Zep Were Never Truly Recreated

    This is probably the most succinct explanation. Its been done post zep. The Clash did it. They went from aping the sex pistols in 76 to putting out albums in 79-82 that had more eclecticism than most 40 yr bands have in a career. But the OP probably meant within the safe confines of classic rock sounding or something. Yea its hard. All your influences had been heard already. T-Bone/BGuy -> Hendrix is easier than Vhalen/Hendrix -> anyone now. You dive bomb or tap now and boom we know where that came from. You use a slide in a medieval/metal context, thats probably from Ritchie Blackmore. etc Just refering to sound, and excusing the songwriting aspect. Im generally amazed when people get seduced by the retro bands that get the sound down (the gretafleet, wolfmother types) but cant actually write anything original/great/good/passable/decent/un-crabby.

    VInyl Bootleg questions!

    I recently got a hold of a recently deceased relative's vinyl collection and pretty stoked to find some zep bootlegs in there. not a crazy surprise as he had baddass taste (uriah heep, dpurple, rundgren, early genesis, mahavishnu, sparks, humble pie)..all that great not-overplayed by classic rock radio type of stuff. i only collected zep boots in the digital age so i got some questions for vinyl era peoples! - artsy packaging is practically non-existent, blank sleeves with maybe a label stamped written or typed/ glued on. in some cases its just a basic center label on the record that tells whats on it. good luck knowing the actual date of the gig. are these just janky boots, knockoff boots, or actually kinda what you'd expect at the time? - this version of blueberry hill 70 i have is way under-speed to my ears. were weird speed variations just expected with bootlegs? - the art of not effing up the inner-sleeve paper when putting back records will be mastered by me ?? anyways what i think i have are [after trying to figure out what disc went with what sleeve] blueberry hill 70 mudslide 70 ...something from 73 usa tour. not sure what this one is. listen to this eddie 77 so yea 'common' stuff, but its cool have the real deals from way back when.

    What headphones do you use?

    yea! these are my go-to's at home. if they have any flaws at all, its that the padding flakes off with moderate use. sony g45's are my outdoor ones. over the ear,/behind neck and feel like youre wearing nothing.

    JUDAS PRIEST

    im gonna hit up the LA show in april. it would be epic if glenn showed since he did for the new york area shows. even if he dosent, its still gonna be kickass....i mean cmon, they're playing saints in hell, didnt know rob still had it in him.
  9. when did he blow it? early 72 but after australia? i wonder which was the immigrant song that finally did him in .....hah cause it sounds like by the the LA shows [HTWWW] he's more 'whining' out the high register[?] than belting it. Rock &Roll and Over the Hills being examples.

    Joy Division

    hah neat. i always preferred live JD to studio. Its like they were 2 different bands. I'm just picking up the bass, so JD is one of my go-to bands. I think a biggie about JDivision is that they seem timeless. They look and sound contemporary no matter the trends.

    Why is Jimi always ranked first in every poll?

    .....seriously? One dude who puts out 3 albums in 1 1/2 years as the primary creative force*. All songs on the his debut are his compositions. vs A band that put out 3 albums in 3 years, with jimmy at best being 1/2 the creative force in 4 piece band. 5/9 of the debut album songs are covers. *mitch mitchell = baddass, but noel redding was an epic black hole.

    Charlie Crist

    Well the dude took a look around and saw he was surrounded by crazies and subsequently lost the election jumped ship. In any case there's zero tolerance for moderation in the current GOP, so he couldn't even be a half-ass Lieberman type.

    NBA season 2012

    Well yea, the lesser evil are the democra spurs. I can handle a classy org and bland as hell Duncan getting props, at least they could never string 2 in a row but i cant deal with the heat. When the bulls killed their shot at the 72 lakers' streak, that was an awesome day. Seriously, everything i could ever hate about basketball is in or about the Heat. douchey flop-happy, wannabe Alphas joining forces with a celtic-ring chaser? oooh YEeeeah! ....the knicks have melo, of course they were gonna lose hahaaaaapretty much every LA team has had a disastrous season! Including the Kings anti-jinx

    NBA season 2012

    My god man this is the season from hell. Duncan tying Kobe's ring count... or ..Lebron cementing his I'm-the-best-ever-along-with-MJ-(kareem/wilt/russell/magic-who?) ESPN cred? Pacers.... you're generally inconsequential, howabout being awesome and making a boring ass all-midwest finals? Take that Stern! Take it and like it!!!! ........and Dwightmare Pt 2!

    JUDAS PRIEST

    Ha. Back when I was getting hardcore into older music I asked my dad (who pretty much saw everyone who was great from '68-'78) about them and he said "they sucked". Years later when I finally got into them*, and I slipped some of their tunes in his mp3 player and he told me he liked the stuff...and he asked who are they? I told him it was maiden and priest, and I was like WTHell, you said you didn't like them years ago? He says "like them? I never heard them! i thought they were a religious band and a chick band! *thanks to metallica covering bits of their tunes (i was collecting their live bootlegs). hilariously, it was dad who converted me to metallica (took the dive cause he liked the 'Justice' album cover)!
