Old Music

I’m ripping some old music to mp3 for the purpose of portability . . . I’m coming across some interesting stuff.  I totally forgot about Fifteen and Fenix TX.  Fifteen, good.  Fenix, TX, well – can somebody remind me why we ever listened to this?  I wonder what made them think they had a creative bone in any of their bodies?  These guys were so sad, I can’t believe I’m actually ripping this right now.  Ugh.  I know Jerry wants that one song.  I think that’s really the only reason we have the disc.  You know the song – it’s the one they had the video for where they’re playing at a party or something and people are making out.  I remember hating the colors in the video and the way the camera moved.  Never did like that band. 

I’m glad, though, that I ripped Fifteen.  Totally forgot about that one.  It looks like the two discs we have are out of stock at the Lookout Records store.  Glad we kept ’em.  I just listened to a couple of songs and remembered how interesting they were.  Thank *choose preferred deity, insert here* for band that doesn’t just sing about romantic relationships and sap.  Ugh.  That gets so OLD! 

 Who knew that Finch broke up?  I’m guessing everybody.  It sure adds perspective about that last disc.  Was it just thrown together so they could fullfill contract requirements, tour one last time, and make a bit o’ money?  It’s an okay disc, it just didn’t fit my idea of how Finch should sound.  But that’s okay, it was still good music. 

Speaking of good music – I’m looking forward to purchasing the new Serj Tankian disc on the 23rd.  Something else was supposed to come out this month, what was it?  Got Radiohead – that’s great!  Maybe it was Jimmy Eat World?  Do they have a new one coming out?  I think so – I hope it’s better than their last one. 

Alright, I’m done.  Think I talked about enough different types of music here?  Trust me, that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

  1. I think the Fifteen CD was one of the first CD’s that I got from Atomic. That was so long ago! I feel old.

    Fenix Tx, yes is a band that I liked. Even worse, there were a couple of songs on that CD that I liked. I know how sad, but it’s honest. I like a lot of music though.

    I want the new Serj disc. I like that song that is on the radio a lot.

    Yes, there is a new Jimmy Eat World disc that comes out this month. I believe that it comes out on the 16th (Same day as the Rollins show)…

  2. You know, the new Radiohead disc is really good, but I still think that Kid A is my favorite… What do you think?

  3. As for a favorite Radiohead disc, can I plead the fifth? It has to be a tie between Pablo Honey, The Bends and OK Computer for me. I think it’s because of the time in my life that those discs came out, however, that I have such an emotional tie to them. I do think Kid A is awesome, but I feel it lacks a certain emotional power that the first three contained. It will be impossible for Radiohead to ever achieve that again, unless they find a way to forget that they are Radiohead, if you know what I mean. They would have to be un-rich, need to play lots of little shows at crappy bars, and all that stuff. There’s no way that their super-comfy lives could support that kind of creativity. At least, that’s my opinion.
