And no more forking out for CD shelving units that take up too much damned space in my house.
Last edited by Kuhlau; Nov at Reason: Bulleted information. I used to manage a classical CD shop in Cardiff which went bust due to lack of trade. It always used to make me laugh when people came in with a "difficult" request, and invariably used the words "I'm keen to support my local music shop" We'd never seen them before, of course. I quickly learnt to just ask "have you tried to get this on Amazon? The sad part is that well-informed, well-meaning individuals are powerless to stop the juggernaut that really got going about 3 years ago and continues to grow.
All businesses need a certain amount of "guaranteed" trade to survive, and having well-trained, knowledgable staff doesn't make a jot of difference to that basic fact. In the shop we knew it was nearly the end when we were regularly ordering certain CDs from Amazon because we could buy them cheaper as a "punter" than we could buy them with a trade discount direct from the supplier!
We hung on for a while, but the owner realised it was futile and closed the business. I now own and run my own specialist sheet music shop! I'm still poor but I'm my own boss. It's good to call the shots for a change High Street Printed Music Shops continue to close at an alarming rate. We're all doomed anyway thanks to a few greedy bankers. I am fascinated to wonder what the world will be like in 10 years.
Pretty bloomin' terrible, I reckon! Here's my response: Change is inevitable. No-one likes Change. Who wants recordings anyway, when LIVE music is so much better!

It would be nice to see some publishers take an interest in selling only hard copies as a policy but since most publishers are now becoming so tight that even Beethoven couldn't get a deal for his fith Symphony if he tried today, what are we to do?
It's a two way street. If downloading music is the way things are going then why stand in the way? I now like having my 'record' collection on my laptop and it doesn't bother me that I don't have to fiddle with plastic discs to find what I want to hear.
On the other hand printed music still has to be circulated properly and there is a real problem here since less and less musicians read music and less and less 'composers' know how to write down their ideas correctly. What I fear is not the demise of the CD which Chris Warren-Green reckons is due to happen but the dissapearence of literate musicians!
This is an interesting topic and actually deals closely with my Disc Shelf project. About two years ago I felt that CDs are inevitable going away. To me this is not a good thing in a sense that 1.
I want to be able to touch the release, I want it to by physical. Having a physical media usually limits the amount of music. With digital formats you have zillions of tunes and you just don't have time to listen to them all. Once you have a cd with 12 tracks, you can carefully listen to them, absorb. Eventually, I thought that if we are to have digital music, why not create virtual albums - but not just some webpages with links to files, but something that looks like a compact disc.
So I came up with Disc Shelf - a service which would allow musicians to add music in form of albums - with a cover, booklet and design. Steven from Lisle, IL. Nov 15 Patrick from Columbia, MO.

Their heavily sixties influenced sound ranges from the slow and introspective "How We Walk" to the soul infused garage rock of "Motown Blood", to the post-punk screamer "Killer Kaczynyski" to the sixties sound of the song here, "And I Don't Know" from their B-Sides and Demos compilation.
The Lepers' sound --and style-- is most evocative of that late seventies hey day of power pop infused punk from the likes of The Ramones, Blondie, Romantics and so on. Of all the bands revisiting the 70s sound, The Cute Lepers are one of the best. The songs are motly short, sharp and spikey, with infectious choruses that you can easily find yourself humming for hours on end after listening.
Sadly, in March of this year, guitarist Travis Criscola died in his sleep from an accidental overdose of pills and alcohol. The band is soldiering on and I hope that this doesn't keep them from reaching their full potential. Lead singer Steve E Nix released this statement on the band's myspace page: Early the morning of March 28, in Cincinnati our friend and band-mate Travis Criscola passed away in his sleep. He was Travis was guitarist in the Cute Lepers for the last six months and was the perfect addition to the band as it's developed.
He was our friend. His company was always a pleasure. I don't think I ever heard him say a negative word about any one. He was smart, polite and considerate, always interested in learning more about music and playing guitar He was passionate about music in a way that only other like minded musicians recognize and relate with.
When Travis joined the band he would not think twice about jumping on the bus from Olympia and making the two hour ride to Seattle for a spur of the moment rehearsal, and then riding the bus two more hours to get back home. In fact Travis was doing this three times a week up until we left for europe to start our tour.
His character and his commitment made him the very best we could hope for in a band-mate and a friend. We're gonna really miss him. We feel that it's appropriate and absolutely not in bad taste to disclose the cause of death of our friend. Travis combined alcohol and pills, then went to sleep and never woke up.
It was an accident. Travis was not any kind of a habitual drug user. I'm a man who has left drugs and alcohol alone for over a decade and I just wont work with people who are mixed up with narcotics. It is rare to find a rock n' roll musician in his early twenties who doesn't get caught up in hitting the bars and going to parties on tour, and Trav was just one of those ones who made a really bad decision.
He naively took some type of pills on top of the beer he was drinking and that's it. I believe that it would be a disservice for us to leave out this information. People would wind up hearing distorted versions of the truth anyways.
Also our hope is that other young musicians, or anyone it may apply to who reads this will learn from our tragedy and perhaps wise up a bit. We're currently traveling across the country back home to Seattle with heavy hearts. Trav's family and his beautiful longtime girlfriend are in our prayers. Seattle power poppers The Pranks released their first album, Modern Communication , at the end of last year and extablished themselves as a power pop band to be reckoned with.
Produced by lead singer Erik Foster's older brother -- Boss Martians' front man Evan Foster-- The Pranks play a pop-punk style of power pop, and deliver a modern sound that echoes Weezer and the Posies at times.
Yet, it's clear that the Pranks understand the power pop of the seventies just as well with flourishes that recall Cheap Trick such as on the song here, "Modern Communication". The Pranks -- Modern Communication. When you think of Herman's Hermits you inevitably think of the quirky, simple pop songs that propelled the band to the forefront of the British Invasion in well ahead of The Beatles and The Who. In the Hermits were the top selling pop act in America, and through the mids had two 1s and a string of top 10 hits.
The band suffered from being over managed, not unlike other bands of the mids like The Yardbirds, The Animals, The Monkees and a host of others. Thneir management wanted a clean cut teen friendly band, and that's what was delivered. With a tremendous amount of success to the tune of over 50 million albums. In they released their final MGM album, their most mature and best to date, but it was doomed by the summer of love and the rise of psychadelic freakbeat.
The song feature here, "Moonshine Man" was perhaps the best track from that underrated album. The popularity and commercial viability of that clean cut sound died away in the late sixties, and by the band was over. There have been lots of reunions, but none that include all the original members. Herman's Hermits -- Moonshine Man. The White Stripes aren't the first band that springs to mind when one thinks mod.
In fact, at first glance they don't have anything mod about them at all. But, that's sort of the point of my mod-a-day project, highlighting things that mods might like that probably wouldn't cross their minds otherwise.
Hence, The White Stripes , maybe more mod than most people would realize. Defying most attempts to adequately define their sound, The White Stripes took delight in producing songs that incorporated a number of different styles and sounds. I have always thought of them as mostly a garage rock band, one with a deep love and respect of the blues, and a definite flare for the dramatic.
They were at the forefront of the garage punk revival out of the motor city in the late 90s, and led the way for the eclectic heavy guitar sound that dominated alternative music in the first part of the 21st century.
And then there was their breakout song, one which on first hearing sounded like something from the Buzzcocks , "Fell In Love With A Girl", and which hit it big partly because of a very cool video made with lego animation.
The White Stripes were a garage revival band, but they were also much more. They took elements of various types of underground music and blended them in new and innovative ways -- but not so innovative as to relegate themselves only to the ghetto of college station airplay. They were able to combine a radio friendly pop sensibility with that edginess that garnered them mainstream success and huge record sales.
July 12, Modcast Mr. Suave's Rough Edges. This modcast is a bit different than the others, since I'm turning the mod mod world into more of a punk punk world. Growing up in southern California in the early 80s I was lucky enough to get to take in some of the great music of the era, namely hardcore punk. Most of the time I was wearing paisly shirts, three button mohair suits, desert boots and riding my scooter. But there were sometimes when you just needed to experience some non-violent violence, some unagressive agression.
The music was fast and loud and the crowds were over the top. Good luck if you were a little guy like me who got caught in the wrong pit.faugladtauscinagcirsinglenmaerisdeansti.xyzinfo's all make believe faugladtauscinagcirsinglenmaerisdeansti.xyzinfo faugladtauscinagcirsinglenmaerisdeansti.xyzinfo't go away faugladtauscinagcirsinglenmaerisdeansti.xyzinfo'chair faugladtauscinagcirsinglenmaerisdeansti.xyzinfo by little 8.d'you know what i mean? faugladtauscinagcirsinglenmaerisdeansti.xyzinfo's electric whatever ※これは先のベスト盤ストップザクロックスとは重複しないベストです。 ：町 nlkhdpwpde ：/01/21(月) id:ulzo 【jethro tull】 faugladtauscinagcirsinglenmaerisdeansti.xyzinfog is easy.
