RUSHHEAD666 Posted October 21, 2006 Share Posted October 21, 2006 I can't believe it but I must give props to the PuppetKing again. If it wasn't for him I never would have found out about The Decemberists. My topic title is true by the way. I really did marry my wife in October. October 13th! Our ten year anniversary was on Friday the 13th this year!! And yes we watched "Friday the 13th" with Jason Voorhes at the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay! It was very romantic!! Anyway, enough about me. Luckily before I heard "The Crane Wife" I was able to listen to a few earlier records by them. I was hesitant at first but then for instance "The Tain" started to grow on me. I love the Colin/Jenny vocal thing going on. I think that is a lost art form in modern music today. Heck, I am old school man. I don't even really like many female vocalists. Well of course BLONDIE (my favorite) and PAT BENETAR and the Wilson sisters from HEART, and Lana Lane, The Runaways, Girlschool, ABBA, (don't laugh) and of course Tony Basil!! (Just kidding!) So the bottom line here is that I dig this new "Decemberists" album. I might even check them out live someday. Believe it or not, even though I seem like I am stuck in my ways of progressive rock, hard rock, heavy metal, and the Bleus, I really still try to think OUTSIDE THE BOX! Country and Hip Hop do not count. YUCK! Occasionally I try to think OUTSIDE THE BUN! Especially when I go to Taco Bell. Sorry if my sense of humor is more like an intense bloated tumor. Life is too short....................... no matter how young you are. I prefer to put my time into the exploration of new tunes. They are out there man, you just have to stumble on them. Thanks again to the PuppetKing for unlocking the dormant door to the Decemberists. The twisting tides sure do tell a tasteful tangy tale. (maybe I should lay off of Primus for a while! ) One week a 17 year old kid tells me that I am childish over U2 bashing. The next week I respect his integrity as a young journalist and a rock interviewer with the intellectual insight on an up and coming band!! My new album is going to be called "THE INSANE LIFE." Hey I live for the cheesy rhyme. Cheers! Earl Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
