Their drumming got better. Their songs and the rest of their sound didn't.

I wouldn't be surprised if he made them a better live band, but I've only seen them since he joined, so I don't know much about what they were like in concert before that. 

Sometimes when I'm at a show, I'll just watch the drummer for a song.  I miss doing that.

One of my most vivid memories during my Lost Years is seeing The Walkmen at a frat house at Penn and spending most of the set at the side of the stage watching the drummer. He is INSANE.

Round 67.xx

Category: Y2K Hits

Song: Crazy

Artist: Gnarls Barkley

I was alluding to it earlier in the draft that if I had to take another Y2K song it might be the song that Rolling Stone called the best of the decade. It deserves to be here. What an unusual pairing and unusual song.

"In this frazzled and fragmented decade, when the Top 40 broke down into squabbling niches, the idea of a universal pop hit, a song anybody could love, seemed like a sweet old-fashioned notion. Then these guys showed up. Atlanta rapper Cee-Lo and indie producer Danger Mouse decided it would be a gas to pretend to be the world's greatest pop group, and so they gave the world "Crazy." Everybody loved this song, from your mom to your ex-girlfriend's art professor. It blasted in punk clubs and Burger King bathrooms. Every sucky band on earth tried a lame cover. For the summer of 2006, "Crazy" united us all into one nation under a groove. Gnarls Barkley packed a career's worth of genius ideas into three minutes — and then they basically disappeared. Does that make them crazy? Probably. But was this the most glorious pop thrill of our time? Totally." - Rolling Stone

Took this in the jukebox draft!

I listen to a lot of faction. I only recognize Pennywise and Jimmy Eat world 

That Avicii thing with you is legendary. Jamny's rendering of your voice to the hockey highlight is probably the biggest laugh I ever got out of these boards.

What do they generally play on faction? I was going for punk after 2010 with my picks. One is from 2010, one from 2013, from 2016, and 2020 (the year that broke punk rather than the year that punk broke).

I'm not sure where to post my :excited: for this, but this seems like a good spot especially to get @simey's attention.  Elvis Costello and Lyle Lovett are doing a livestream next Friday, Dec. 11.  Tickets are $10.  It appears you can also watch it for about a week thereafter if you bought a ticket.

This is pretty much what heaven looks like to me.

They play a lot of old punk stuff on faction. They mix in some new stuff, but for the most part its old stuff

Oh, wow. We thought it was modern -- as in really modern. Is it like '70s old or '90s old? Big difference there, too. Because I'd chalk up Pennywise and Jimmy Eat World from the '90s and aughts, respectively.

I would say it is predominantly 90s old. Lots of Bad Religion, Pennywise, NoFX, Offspirng 

If you were on the warped tour, they play you on Faction

I thought it was new too. I picked the Jimmy Eat World (is it ok to abbreviate their name or does that seem too suspicious in the current climate of hate?) song and it's from 2019 so it is one of the newest ones on the playlist.

About ten years ago Elvis Costello made a bluegrassy roots album called Secret, Profane and Sugarcane, and he was one of the headliners at the Merlefest.  Since k mentioned him last night, I thought I'd slip him into Bluegrass Junction. I'm going with one of the slower songs on the album. It's a song he and Loretta Lynn wrote together.

68.8 or 12 - David Essex - Gonna Make You A Star (70s on 7)

Essex was a one hit wonder in the US but had a long and successful show biz career in the UK.  He had a couple of #1 hits over there including this one from 1974 that adds synths and a bit of glam flash on top of a McCartneyesque Pop framework.

 

great hair.

Oh crap, I just realized @rockaction got me to post over in the shark pool. I think it’s been at least 5 years since I ventured over there. 

I'm tricky that way. Stream of consciousness posting is my strength. Whichever thread I'm in, I just determine if the people in it need to know what music I'm listening to and why, and then I go forward.
