new buss compressor from Stillwell

Bombardier -- it's on the site. Just a heads-up.

How did that work out? I've got a MIJ tele I'm thinking about refinishing. Was stripping the poly tough? (assuming that's what was on your strat previously)

So you could conceivably write a song that mixed itself?

I mean, Billy Joel can play reggae if you ask him to, but, you know, come on, there would likely not be much authentic feel in the resulting musical gesture. Reggae that's swing or not swung? In traditional music circles, swing is definitely a technique. It usually refers to triplet-based phrasing....

I can see where you're coming from -- swing is a little different to me, though, in that it is not just a technique, it's a "feel." I mean, Billy Joel can play reggae if you ask him to, but, you know, come on, there would likely not be much authentic feel in the resulting musical gesture. Where does...

Man, I don't know -- the more I think about it my original post was sort of a brainfart. Subatomic, I agree with you that there is a lot of great music being made now. Even with a full-time career, one kid in college and two in daycare, I still make an effort to find it. Denying that lots of great m...

I've heard the first two -- might add Linus of Hollywood and The Red Button for power poppers that can swing sometimes. "Baby Britain" was a good suggestion too.

I was thinking more about what we might think of as rock acts, too.

So name some names, folks, please. Who is swinging these days? I'd like to check it out. FWIW I think of Tommy Ardolino of NRBQ as a rock drummer with a great feel for swing. I am kind if old (45), but I'm not a curmudgeon, subatomic -- I just like that groove, and wonder where it went as an idiom i...

Every time I hear "Penny Lane" lately,

I'm struck by how fucking hard that song swings. What happened to swing in rock?

Let's Active did some cool covers live -- I saw them do "Hush" by Deep Purple (Angie rocking the organ), and I remember they opened with "Shakin' Street" by the MC5 too back in the day. What am I listening to today? The Donny Hathaway Live album. Just made this discovery, and can't believe I'd never...
