March vinyl challenge by @waxbygraves. March 25th: "Sorry Mom" (and dad). My early musical tastes was almost exclusively Abba. I constantly listened to the Swedish pop maestros. At about 12 years old I discovered synth pop - Howard Jones and Alphaville mainly. One year later I heard 'Shake The Disease' on the radio and was hooked. I started to use my allowance for buying everything I could by Depece Mode. This much to my mom's chagrin who really did not like what she called "tin banging music'. The reason for this expression was of course 'Pipeline' which is a bit like that to be fair. very good though as is the whole album.
Spring is just around the corner so what other way to celebrate it with the decent second album by one of my favorite drummers of all time, Tony Williams? Tony was only 20 years old when this session took place and considering the players he enlisted (and considering his own massive talent) it should be awe-inspiring, but in reality, it is just a decent album. Still, it is also a free jazz album that actually breathes. It takes it's time and that is one of it's strengths. Also, I guess it could be considered as an early V.S.O.P. constellation. Any fans out there?
Tony Williams – Spring, 1966 (1977 Japan reissue)
Vale Scott Walker. Few artists have had such an impact on me as Scott. From his early MOR solo material, exploration of Jacques Brel, his later darker experimental output, his film scores, that one song for a Pierce Brosnan Bond film and the projects he produced for others; there's always something worth paying attention to. You'll be missed.
Last night, I put this on as a balm after a rough weekend. This morning, I woke to the news my musical hero has died. Scott Walker's story defies logic and beggars belief. Few artists go from teen idol to essentially inventing their own musical language. But Scott did, and he did it after a long fallow period where it seemed he'd be stuck as a MOR crooner. I always thought there would be one last album from him. Sundog practically promised it. But what he left behind is more than enough. It changed my life and continues to do so every day. RIP, Scott. And thank you for everything.

It’s a rainy, broken-hearted cinematic noir drama. I don’t remember now how it exactly happened, but I must have reached out for Hats via Paul Buchanans’s guest appearance on Peter Gabriel’s OVO. As I recall, I was immediately struck by the haunting quality of his voice - that sort of pained delivery reminiscent perhaps of Sinatra, capturing so well that, in Paul’s own words, “4am sort of feeling”. My head exploded when I first heard Hats. It was like listening to an Edward Hopper painting. Image after image, the ebb and flow of the city, neon lights and empty bars, strangers in the night, lonely souls wandering through their everyday life.
It’s a perfect late night spin. There is a fantastic review of the album on Pitchfork which perfectly sums up the fairly enigmatic appeal of this record: “It’s a shame that Hats was never a hit, but it also would have been a shame if it were. It’s hard to imagine being confronted by these songs in the wild. It seems inappropriate to even listen to it in the daytime. You carve out a place to hear Hats; you confide it in other people.” If you haven’t yet, I strongly urge you to carve out a place to hear “Hats”. It will all never be the same after that.
Favourite tracks: Downtown Lights, From The Late Night Train, Headlights On The Parade
Iron Maiden - The Number Of The Beast (1982)
Maiden‘s third studio record, the first with „air raid siren“ Bruce Dickinson on vocals and last with Clive Burr on drums, celebrated it’s 37th birthday yesterday! 🎊🎉
What a timeless album - still amongst my five favourite Maiden records. Not a single bad song, but lots of Heavy Metal highlights like „Children Of The Damned“, „Run To The Hills“, „The Prisoner“ and of course the insanely amazing title track and my personal fave „Hallowed Be Thy Name“ („When you know that your time is close at hand
Maybe then you'll begin to understand
Life down here is just a strange illusion“ - written by Steve Harris). What’s your fave song from this album? And which is your fave Maiden record from the 80s? Have a nice weekend, friends!
Impossible to end a weekend without spinning some Beatles ! .
Without a doubt, they are the band that I listened to the most in my life. When I was a baby my parents used to play their albums to calm me down. To a point where it almost became nursery rhymes to me, all those melodies deeply impregnated my brain and it followed me all my life. .
I love every Beatles album, for a lot of different reasons. I just have a sentimental bond with this debut album, as it was originally released here in Canada. Titled “Twist And Shout”, it was released by Capitol as part of the original 6000 series. I have both stereo and mono versions but the latter was owned by my parents. It has that cool handwriting on the back, with both my parents name on it with hearts and a love note ❤️
My last, but definetely not least, album from @feedbands is self titled album from Sweet Bump It, pressed on clear vinyl. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As like the band's name sounds, it's sweet, soulful, tasty rock and roll album with lot of women energy and delicious beats and guitar riffs. It's that kind of album which makes me put high heels on, slip into my favorite dress and sing into my hairbrush in front of the mirror. 🤗
Just go check out my IG Stories so you know what I'm speaking about! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Once again, huge thanks to Feedbands, it was such a pleasure to work with them and I wish all the best for their business. I'm sure we will hear about Feedbands here in my page in the future as well. 😉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #ad#sweetbumpit#rock#vinylcollection#nowspinning
