Melee

Hi Shoey,
Just listened to #1 (Bless Those) and I'd definitely like to hear more of that!

debbym said...

Enjoyed #2 more than I thought I would when it started, but still prefer #1

debbym said...

#3 - now this is really awakening my interest! Rather like the sheer quantity of lyrics.

debbym said...

Not feeling mellow enough for #4 right now

debbym said...

#5 in the wrong mood for this as well this afternoon - so, that's me down to #1 or #3, hmmmm

debbym said...

OK, I'm going with You Go On Ahead (Trumpet Trumpet II)

Thank you, Shoey!

1. Oh, yes, please! Living Colo(u)r? Tackhead? I don't get that giveaway info (when the cursor goes over a track) that some of you lot seem to get.

2. Nah.

3. Interesting.

4. Mmmm. Maybe (like Debby) I'm just not in the mood; this should be pushing my buttons, but somehow it isn't.

5. Yep, that does hit the spot.

So ...

1 & 5 are in a photo-finish, but I figure I'd learn more if it was 3 or 4. Anything but 2, in other words, Shoey.

Thanks.

Here are the nominees:

Living Colour
Solillaquists of Sound
Sunset Rubdown
Clientele
Russian Circles

If DsD is splitting his vote again, then SR have the edge for now. Another 1 from them on track 7 of my Moon list if you want some more Debby (in my sleepy state, I posted the album title "Dragonslayer" instead of the band name over on RR this week. Doh!).

Just call me Mr. Decisive ... or Ol'LaserFocus ... or ... D'OH!

5 for me.

Shoey, I've been playing these a lot this afty/eve (when not watching LFC drop another clanger), and after reviewing the photo-finish, I'll take more of 5. please.

The Living Colour is excellent (and already on my Walkman) but I don't need convincing about them.
Instead I think I'd rather make some room for some Russian Circles in the same genre section of the DsD collection as Mogwai, God Is An Astronaut and Explosions In The Sky.
