Re: New EP — Done entirely in the home studio

Well done Alex! (Finally listening after a year—Sorry!). The first two songs are very “80’s Brit-pop-y” to me, they sound like Robert Fripp producing the Edge playing with “XT-Tears for Thompson Twins” (in my world that’s a good thing). I also hear some Prog influences a la the first U.K. album. Ver...

Re: The Bad Plus

I always get them confused with Soulive, from my hometown, and also one of the members was formerly a denizen of this very TOMB.

Re: List of Jazz or Soul Records that used an old drum machine?

Good call Jitters; wouldn't have remembered that one. Wikipedia and another source say it was an "electric timbale" (that's a quote from someone at Hi). But I've never heard of one of those. I wonder if they mean something like the Synare? Which would not be a drum-machine per se, but it is an analo...

Re: Topicality - "The Situation"

Point of Order-- The movie I was riffing off of was called "A Bronx Tale." But, your story is very funny. You should go back to the group with a copped Hemingway story featuring a mackinaw jacket, like Danny Bonaduci did in that episode of "Partridge Family" where Susan Dey is the student teacher gi...

Re: Topicality - "The Situation"

I was going to write a song about Frankie Four-Fingaz and Tommy Two Times (Two Times).

Then I changed my mind.

Re: List of Jazz or Soul Records that used an old drum machine?

How's that list coming, Mark? Any new additions?

I was listening to Shuggie Otis the other day and thought of you and this thread...

Re: vinyl collecting ( and surrounding planetary atmosphere )

Oh, gawsh shed... Soooo many. It depends on if you really mean sound, or performance, specific or irrespective of genre, etc., etc. I could fill up 20 posts. I'd bet Tony would say something similar. I will say two that are killer for both sound and performance (but very different) are Tony Williams...

Re: vinyl collecting ( and surrounding planetary atmosphere )
