    Inside - John Martyn

    From his In Session BBC recordings album, another recent acquisition.

    I suppose it's the nature of jazz (which the great man was clearly influenced by, even if he was really a folky at heart) to improvise around a song. Even so it's fascinating to hear different takes of familiar material.

    ****s me when blokes who're pretty much the whole band like Callahan decide to "go solo".

    Ian Broudie released a "solo" album too. & Will Oldham wants to make his ****ing mind up: Palace Brothers, Palace Music, Bonnie "Prince" Billy...

    Arctic Monkeys - Arabella

    One of their best ever songs. The War Pigs guitars will really confuse some pretentious people I can think of over the years; for me that's the best thing about this album, they've not tried to be anything, they dig ****loads of different music and have gone and made an album that just represents that. I'd never claim to be the most open-minded music fan but I dig a lot of the **** that Turner does; he cites Dre and Sabbath as big influences on this album and I enjoy both. I also enjoy the Arctic Monkeys, though, and more than anything this now just sounds like them, always a good place to find yourself in. A truly special band.

    No-one comments on Yip, so I'm going to go the spectrum and mention Glee,

    but it's more to say that the nonsense about the Beatles early music being sub-standard is just pish the fact is they're great songs, and the fact they changed music forever with their fancy technical breaks and stuff afterwards, it should never be forgotten that they did that because they made brilliantly simple songs that tore and tear on the groins of people.

    gawd I hate when people slag early Beatles, It's so ****ing moronic, my dad loved early beatles, before that he only liked glenn Miller and big bands, and he didn't like later beatles, but thats the ****ing point it appealed to everyone.

    Oh and probably only emphasised this point with glee because Naya Rivera is hotter than the sun.

    In an inverse of the old indie wanker's standby opinion about any and every artist, I personally prefer their later work, but that's not to say the initial stuff is anything other than class. My own early doors fav fabs' is actually their cover of Twist and Shout; it seems to my ears the aural evocation of their speed fuelled Hamburg residence; all sweat and speed with it almost literally sounding like John is shredding his larynx to hit the notes at the borders of his range.

    Anyway:

    Slither - Velvet Revolver

    I think their debut album on the whole is a wee bit clean sounding (it was released in 2004, when the evils of nu metal stalked the world unchecked, so maybe that's why the bluesy edges have been smoothed off Slash's guitar), but this is decent. Sounding far more like STP than GnR tho.

    Has its moments that album. Fall to Pieces and Loving the Alien showcase the Slash we know and love IMO.

    Listening to quite a lot of the Wicked soundtrack at the moment, having gone to see it on Sunday night. It was way better than I expected, and I absolutely loved it. Almost tempted to go again before its run ends in November.

    Sirens - Pearl Jam

    Real return to form from Vedder et al, IMHO. Flirts at being a ballad, but it's too anthemic & the chorus soars too high.

    Quality solo too.

    I once listened to fall to pieces on repeat for two hours. Partly because it is a stunning song and partly because I had nothing to do at work.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Playing it now. Must be one of their newer ones from the past couple of CDs.

    have Royals playing a bit I will get sick of it after a short time - being a Kiwi lass they are trying to hype her over here. The top 3 singles in the country all belong to her.
