Quote from: puddintame on June 26, 2010, 10:47:36 PMHoly carp. What is a "Lady GaGa" ?
Quote from: starrmtn001 on April 01, 2010, 05:36:18 PMExcellent post Marc. Had tears by the time "Highwaymen" finished.I would post my thoughts on how I also miss Art at the helm but I would just be echoing Traveling Executioner and C2C Weekends, however I do like Ian. That being said, no one will ever "fill Art's shoes."
Quote from: saucy on June 28, 2010, 09:17:46 PM..Lady Gaga is all over the map, P. But, hang on to you seat..there's a new group called, are you ready for this, (no) : the Scissor Sisters. They are, according to my UK sources, just as big in popularity, worldwide, as the Gaga one.
Quote from: valdez on June 29, 2010, 04:34:16 AM ...Wow. That was horrible.
Quote from: MV on June 29, 2010, 09:32:24 AMi could see how someone might say that about the third offering, but do you mean to say ALL of them were horrible? really???
Quote from: valdez on June 29, 2010, 02:55:48 PM I gave them a second listen. Yeah. Really bad stuff. But allow me to say a few positive things about them. I like the red jump suit. The silver pants/suspender attachment is sharp. In fact, after doing a little research on them it seems they may single handedly save the polyester industry, which is good because, even though there is no use for it today, it may be urgently needed again in the future, and they also recorded a track with Ian McKellen, who played Gandalf in Lord of the Rings.
Quote from: MV on June 28, 2010, 10:57:52 PMi love the scissor sisters. they're from the states, but they never really made it big here. i like them for a lot of reasons, among which is the fact that they actually are able to sing live and play instruments! heh heh. their songs aren't formulaic and repetitive like a lot of artists out there today. they're quite interesting. here are a couple of their tunes.and... they took a lot of shit for this one, but personally, i like it:
Quote from: saucy on June 29, 2010, 11:20:36 PMI like a little POP. You from the UK MV? This was my first listen to the Sisters..not bad. I don't mind their spin off of Roger Waters Pink Floyd. I predict that they don't have the depth to cover a Syd Barrett tune derivative thereof--The REAL Pink Floyd; so that's ok. I'm not as eccentric as some people are about what's behind the music. I am eclectic though. I don't like everything and anything! Thanx! The first one sounds the best;)
Quote from: MV on June 29, 2010, 11:57:13 PMfar from it... i'm from cape girardeau, MO.what is your favorite syd barrett tune? mine is probably milky way. see attached.
Quote from: MV on June 29, 2010, 03:50:41 PMi'm curious, what do you prefer to listen to?
Quote from: valdez on June 30, 2010, 05:11:22 AM Not an easy one to answer. Anybody who tells you, "I listen to everything," listens to nothing.
Quote from: MV on June 30, 2010, 07:05:52 AMthat's as true as anything i've ever heard.
Quote from: saucy on July 01, 2010, 02:12:52 AMWith regards to those with generic musical taste...let's not forget those among us who fall cluelessly into the mainstream music industry target demographic, who listen to the artist which the label deems a sellable product. Who is this demographic? Who are these "artists". Some of the artists Valdez listens to, eg., Elvis Costello, Chrissy Hynde, and some (early) U2, (although, in Ireland you would be hard pressed to find anyone to agree, they hate Bongo there; and, for good reason), strictly early U2 then--all of which would suit me fine. But, the Essential Bruce Springsteen? maybe fine for background music for committing suicide! Ever notice that most all Stadium R&R artists have a short (musical career) life span? The Rolling Stones are the obvious exception. Everything has its exception to the rules, but not many. Less is more, when it comes to popular music. Narrow it down to the art of the musician's ability to make his/ her music into art.
Quote from: iBelieve on July 02, 2010, 01:48:16 AMIs there a schedule for up and coming Art shows ? Or does he just come on when he feels like it ?

Quote from: MV on July 02, 2010, 04:45:21 AMhaha, that line gave me douche chills.
Quote from: valdez on July 16, 2010, 04:36:51 AM According to the c2c website, Art will be hosting July 23rd.
