Aaah yes, Stone Sour, got most of their work in my playlist, same with Slipknot.

And the cramps, well... they give me gas  ;D

@ Lieven, about Johhny Cash : i have to agree, if anyone could talk me into a religion other than Pastafarianism, it'd be the man in black.

@misterg,  Thanks for the pointer to the Cardiacs.  Never heard them before, but I'm a fan now too.  Where have I been?  Will have to try to work throught the list. 

I found this quote in Wikipedia: "one Cardiacs song contains more ideas than most other musicians' entire careers."

The correct amount of guitars is one more than you currently own

I've only recently been introduced to them myself - some wacky stuff, but always well played.

Someone got me into this:

Now I'm working my way through these:

Jeez, I had that single waaay back when, wore the vinyl out I think, what a cracking sound, seemed like they remained a bunch of freaks. Couldn't get into anything else of theirs, they sounded like Robert Fripp - if he'd grow up on a council estate, and was into meth.

Never saw this vid before, I think it was before such things were everywhere and mandatory.

ANYONE: Do you know the main riff to This is The Life? I could probably work it out if any of the vids showed it properly, but they don't.

Otherwise, listening to heaps of Stevie Ray Vaughan. Never got into him before, a few tracks that initially turned me off him, I preferred by others, like Gary Moore.

But I happened upon Pride and Joy and it went from there. xx--xx, he was good. Flasher than a rat with a gold tooth, but has jaw dropping technique, a distinctive sound, and plays some wonderfully addictive blues.

Is the bass player wearing pants? 

Cardiac reminds me of Zappa and early Pink Floyd.  Some of those vids are pretty freaky.

Can I play too?

Over the last month or so, I have been getting into some local live music.  At the moment, I am listening to a live compilation album recorded at a concert 12 months ago.

The acts?

The Silverado's (saw them again last night at a local pub) - They are a Rock'n'roll/rockabilly act (leaning more towards rock'n'roll)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUzx9khoGFk

The Saucerman - again, another  Rock'n'roll/rockabilly act (this time leaning more towards rockabilly)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZMSBo6AZ28

And Finally, Lucky Seven Swing - these guys play what I call 'pre-rock'.  A bit of Jump Blues, swing but also into rock'n'roll
An older youtube promo clip:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mm5b9DIQgKQ

The cool thing about all these acts, even though they are playing older genre's, is they still write and perform there own stuff.

I know, it's not the shredding stuff that many will post here, but it is what I am into!

Cheers

Great to support your local live music scene

... I know, it's not the shredding stuff that many will post here, but it is what I am into!

Not that many shreddists around these parts are there?

Probably not  ;).  I suppose, it all comes down to definition.  One mans Shredder is another mans massager (does that work?  Not sure).

Tonight for my listening pleasure I have JD McPherson.

OK, its not on CD/MP3 as I can't seem to be able to purchase his music from the iTunes, so I have been watching him on youtube.  I only heard about him for the first time yesterday (when someone posted a link to my FB), now I can't get enough of his music:
