Music Questions


#361

I’d prefer to direct you to their new album, pal. I’m focusing on that now.


#362

What bands are 11 to 14 year old boys listening to these days?
Also any suitable movies or series maybe…

I admit it, I’m looking to download some cheap Christmas presents.

Thanks!


#363

Download?? You’ll be passing on a cd/dvd that you’ve made yourself as a present? Star Wars will be the big one this crimbo.


#364

Yes, they are much appreciated in non broadband areas to the 11-14 year olds.

Comon, hit me with some names, don’t think Star Wars is available yet.


#365

I don’t know, pal. Why don’t you introduce and educate the kids with a host of classic bands? They will be music snobs in no time looking down upon their peers. However, i’d look up the charts and see what has been popular for a while - at that age it is whatever is blasting out on the radio - black lads mostly i’d guess but i’d try and steer them away from that shite… stick on spin fm when ever you are drving and you’ll soon know - alternatively, you could just pm @glasagusban or @RamblerRED


#366

They are flagged there now so they might come back to me. Thanks!


#367

This thread has taken a sinister turn.


#368

Depends what kind of youngster they are hab. Cool indie kids, angry metal guys or just into a bit of pop. But I believe cool kids will like the new Tame Impala record, Currents.


#369

I’m twenty and listen to red hot chilli peppers quite a lot. I like old stuff too like luke kelly/bob dylan/the kinks etc. I’d listen to a lot of dance/techo stuff too like kygo etc etc.

@Fagan_ODowd

Metal related question.

What do you make of Tool? Or would you call that metal?


#371

As it has taken @Fagan_ODowd longer than 1 min to answer, let me step in. Tool are phenomenal. The level of detail that goes into everything they do - music, lyrics, art, live shows - is the benchmark in my opinion.

And yes - Tool fall into the “metal” genre, but more specifically “progressive metal”.


#372

Farmer, I am not a fan of Tool. And for some reason I always considered them industrial rather than metal.

Maybe it was the name that confused me.


#373

Agree.


#374

Reckon it must be the name Fagan - industrial is all about the repeating riffs and the almost techno beats (e.g. Fear Factory, NIN, Ministry). I wouldn’t class Tool as even close to industrial. Will post two examples in another thread @farmerinthecity.


#375

That’s the first time I have seen Fagan schooled on music issues. Niche area but still.

Moth, fire up some stuff off Lateralus for @Fagan_ODowd on the metal thread. Fagan have you listened to that album? Surprised you don’t like it.

@habanerocat, Kendrick Lamarr’s To Pimp a Butterfly is the album of the year. But depending on age/taste the kids might want something more accessible. If they’re into hip hop at all and have any kind of decent taste though then the above is on point.


#376

Hardly schooled pal. @fagan_odowd posts some pretty amazing stuff.

Re. Tool - coming up chuck!


#377

There are many gaps in my musical knowledge glas. This is just one of them. Happy to be corrected.


#378

+1


#379

I gave Kendrick Lamar’s latest album two listens last week. What a pile of unadulterated boring shite.

@Fran, what artists/bands are you listening to these days?

Jesus wept. Who let this cunt near a stereo.
