i'd heard "moonchild" and the title track in movies but a rewatch of Children of Men got me to finally listen to the full album

"21st century schizoid man" kinda sounds like Electric Wizard

Awesome. I was coming off of a KC kick, particularly that album, when I was going through the ELP catalog recently. Album / band rules.

i'm dicovering Stephan Eicher's early discography. Way too late. In the french speaking world hes famous but mostly for his post 80's boring commercial radio stuff (h di commerical radio stuff in the late 80s too but it wasnt yet boring imo). I'm discovering through his early 80's stuff a guy who had much more depth than i'd ever suspected. And who had a pretty interesting musical path. Did his first 1980 record, Spielt noise boys, in two days barely knowing anything about music and "borrowing" (temporarily stealing) equipment from a band after cops raided the venue he worked at. the result is a pretty raw, minimalist and amateurish but yet interesting record. He later had a cold wave band for 3 years (Grauzone) that was also pretty good. Then he went back to doing solo records. It's kind of uneven to be fair but when it's good it's good.

This is 1983 from his second record Les chansons Bleues but sounds like modern bands doing 80's. This is like my most favorite song of the moment right now



from his first 1980 record Spielt Noise Boys







This one is also great from 1985



and then this is when he got more radio single from the album of the same name but i still like it despite the thick accent when he sings english

Relatively Clean Rivers - s/t, thanks Jeff Tweedy for the rec


Norma Tanega - Walkin' my Cat Named Dog similar slightly oddball 60s folk/rock easy listenin' feels


Napalm Death - Fear Emptiness Despair, the perfect balance of groove and grindcore/death (for me)


Donnie Fritts - Prone to Lean, like if Levon Helm recorded a swamp rock album, I loves it


Frankie Miller - Once in a Blue Moon, RIYL Rod Stewart, Bob Seger, good tunes (check the must listen album thread)


Tyla Gang - Yachtless, greasy 70s pub-rock, RIYL Herman Brood, Dr Feelgood


Rockpile - Seconds of Pleasure, Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds' best album loaded with power/pub pop nugs that you just want to play over and over (2 nugs below)
