There was some good music played on Miami Vice. I still remember the fast car sequence when Phil Collins' In the air tonight was playing.

Thanks to an earlier post by @Bullbasket I've spent a happy evening clad in headphones, re-acquainting myself with Jean Michelle Jarre. Still some epic sounds there.

To my ears, the music died twenty odd years ago. I've only liked maybe four of five records since then. Good job I have all this fabulous old stuff to fall back on.

 

And I'm currently finishing off with a bunch of Hippies playing one of my all time favourites...

Genesis - Platinum Collection. 3 CD set, although I only really like anything from Abacab onwards.

Ne'er been a fan of Genesis, neither during Peter Gabriel nor Phil Collins' reign, but Heavens knows that I'd use to listen to this Genesis cover on a loop as soon as I learnt about it.

First time I found out about Coal Chamber, it was this song the first one I listened to; I was in a pub which had a massive speakers system, with an even more massive screen wall where to peep at the video. The sound was so pounding that it made your guts tremble inside. The combination was almost overwhelming without adding the effects of booze. :lol:

I've been studying today so I gave myself an eighties playlist.  There's so much eighties music I could run for days and days with the stuff I loved during that decade but I've decided to give you my potted history of the eighties...

 

..the early eighties were filled with punk and post punk, I was fortunate enough to see this band several times during that decade and their lead singer/guitarist during his time with the Banshees, anyway, here's the Cure, I remember seeing them perform this at Portsmouth Guildhall during the very early eighties...

 

 

During late 1983, I joined the RAF, unemployment for under-21's on the Isle of Wight was running at 75%, I had to get out of there.  Joining the RAF, this album came out the following year, it was the course album, this is one of the most epic songs in rock and roll history and it was on that album...

 

 

Hull 4, London 0 came out when I went out to the big wide RAF, they were paying and trusting me to go and fix aircraft!  This is one of the four bands in London that were better than anything that London was churning out, this fitted my mood in those Cold War years, this song is as relevant now as it was then, it's bleak but it matched those Cold War days...

Grid Of Points and Ruins by Grouper. If you like breathy, female vocals and melancholy, minimal piano (and I'm a sucker for both) then you may well like Grouper too.

More studying tonight, these are my nineties themed choices although this period brought an embarrassment of riches.

 

Blur's brilliant piece of punk...

 

 

A vastly underrated band from the Britpop era...

 

 

Followed by easily one of the best bands I've seen live (and I've seen a few in my 55 years)

I've been playing more Grouper of the past few days. The further you go back into her recorded history, the bleaker it gets, though it kinda matches my mood of late. I think I'm done with the cold, the rain and the incessant wind. I need some sunshine, leaves on the trees and colourful insect life!

 

Talking of sunshine, tonight I've been listening to Blue Sunshine by The Glove. The Glove was the other side project from Siouxsie And The Banshees (the most famous being The Creatures) and features Steve Severin and Robert Smith, along with Jeanette Landray on vocals for some songs. It's a very trippy album, both playful and dark in turn, and I remember being absolutely enthralled by it when it came out. It's one of those albums I never tired of.

Is Play Today from this same era? That song; really dark. Even when I'm a metalhead, I couldn't stop listening to it.

@Uncle Uncool Play For Today was from the Seventeen Seconds (1980) album, preceding Primary (1981), which was from Faith. If you think that Seventeen Seconds is dark, Faith and the following album, Pornography (1982), are in another league entirely. Often referred to as "The Trilogy", many people claim that these three albums started the Goth movement, though I can't say I'd agree with that. Not easy listening by any stretch of the imagination, I still find them captivating after all this time and I'm not sure I have heard anything that matches the intensity of those albums played in succession.

 

Cheers,

Mark.

Love Stan Ridgway, a really witty and clever songwriter.  I'm a huge fan of his stuff from his Wall of Voodoo days, this one is a particular favourite...

More themed listening on the Spotify whilst I'm studying.  Today's theme is the 2000's and Spotify threw these up...

 

Great intro and guitar riffs on this one from Bloc Party, the very noisy intro is my phone ringtone for work based contacts...

 

 

More great guitar riffs from a well turned out bunch of Swedish hooligans, great bit of pure punk this one...

 

 

And just to prove it's not all about guitars, I fell in love with Goldfrapp's quirky stuff, still a big fan...

Mark!

Awesome piece of info there, thanks! I had the faintest idea what album Play For Today was from, honestly. First album by The Cure people learnt about down here was Head On The Door, and that was back in 1986; I was barely 6 years old and completely devoted to the New Wave of British Heavy Metal by then.

But that song - Play For Today - stirred a lot of interest in me, as it did The Sisters Of Mercy and The Damned.

The only album I was able to get on CD format was Head On The Door, (a couple of dark tunes on that one too), and the direction of the band totally changed after that album. 

Yeh, it did...

Cheers,
