I guess I didn't define a timeline, so since 2000 I guess. I've heard a few things from Calexico, so I definitely will check them out. Mogwai was playing the last time I went into Everyday Music (oops, just gave away my true location) and I remember liking it. Thanks, Steve-o, those are some good di...

Re: Who Is Quintessential Rock Singer?

And the looking good in "rock star outfits," unless you consider XL t-shirts, cardigans, and white leather hi-tops to be a rock star outfit... That polar bear outfit was totally rock star, and lets not forget that Weiland stole his pink boa schtick from Bob. Mod business suits, lipstick &...

Re: Who Is Quintessential Rock Singer?

1. Must be male. Sorry, this is chauvinistic, but it's still true. 2. Must have pipes and range. Growl the low bits, hit the high notes, have power and control. 3. Must be a lothario, and convey the image of sex and danger while managing the delicate balance of appealing to both men & women. 4....

Sun Kil Moon - Ghosts of the Great Highway (November 4, 2003) Cranes - Future Songs (2001) The Breeders - Title TK (2002) The New Year - The End Is Near (2004) Cranes & The New Year, while not having a big impact per se , certainly sound as good today as they did then. I would agree with Jake on...

Re: Where's the revolution?

I agree with Miss Carol - that's all business. The internet (and social networking) is a delivery method. I'm asking about sonic revolution, something that blows your mind with the way it sounds. Let's take Radiohead's In Rainbows. What blew my mind was that they said name your own price, not the mu...

I am kind of surprised that no one has said Paul McCartney, who is a WAY better singer than John Lennon or Mick Jagger: Helter Skelter, Michelle, She Came In Through The Bathroom Window, Hey Jude - the ease with which McCartney switches styles and his range are simply amazing. Watch out for Neko Cas...
