I can't tell the difference between 3/4 and 4/4 time. In fact, I don't really know what either one means. I also don't know what it means to play in different keys.

While I admire the fact that David Bowie existed, every time I hear his music it makes we wish I were listening to early Queen instead.

a band. fred cole of dead moon just passed away. and most of my facebook friends were big fans. he had a very distinctive voice. like an even weirder roky erickson. i really only know the lollipop shoppe album. and the weeds single from the 60s. and the mid-70's zipper album. dead moon put out a ton of stuff over the years.

scott seward, Friday, 10 November 2017 21:26 (one week ago) Permalink

I listened to Dead Moon for the first time this afternoon. They were OK. Fred's voice was like a cross between David Thomas of Pere Ubu and Roky Erickson. So if high-pitched "there's something living in my brain!" screeching is your thing, he was the man for that. The music was OK. Sort of garage punk meets Crazy Horse. They would never have dethroned the Lazy Cowgirls as my favorite American punk band that never really made it.

I love the note in the Nuggets booklet that the name change from the Weeds to the Lollipop Shoppe came about to avoid confusion with the Seeds. It's like, yep, that's certainly a name that doesn't sound anything like "the Seeds".

I haven't been avoiding it at all, at least not until the last few years due to it being a running joke among my 12-cd-owning Classic Rock fans. There's a chance I've inadvertently heard it somewhere. Was it ever in an advertisement or part of a film soundtrack? If so I may have heard it that way.

I haven't gone out of my way to check it out because I wasn't crazy about the first Led Zeppelin album, and I never listened to classic rock stations growing up. Got my first radio in '85 and listened to top-40 pop for about a decade, followed by an almost-exclusive hip hop diet until around 2002. All I know about the song is it's on the Led Zeppelin IV album and was a popular prom song in the 70s, lol.

Rod Steel (musicfanatic), Sunday, 19 November 2017 00:53 (three days ago) Permalink

It was a popular prom song after the 70s too.

I remember a lot of middle school dances in the late 80s that ended with Stairway. Kind of a weird song for slow dancing. It got so overplayed in the 70s and 80s that it became a joke, but it's a truly great song and you should give it a chance if you've never listened to it.

I danced to stairway at a school thing in like 2001, it's really stood the test of time and iirc it was a strangely communal feeling

i saw a Pulp thread revive and felt it was my duty to mention that the only Pulp song i've ever heard is "common people". but lots of people have probably never listened to Pulp.

if they were even half as good as Doctors of Madness i might listen to them someday. it would be hard to believe that Pulp wrote lyrics as good as Doctors of Madness lyrics though. the jarvis always kinda bugged me though for some reason. just looking at him. which is mean.
