Un-music music

I love the minimalism of Young Marble Giants and The xx - and in online reviews the term "negative space" describes just what I like about them. So, what else should I listen to?

Pearl Jam's most punk influenced songs?

What are Pearl Jam's most punk influenced, or punk sounding songs, that you would recommend for a mix tape for my punk music interested girlfriend? I'm a big fan, but a musical novice. I don't know names of songs (except for the obvious ones), have skipped some of their albums, and just know there is someone out there who can answer this questions better than I. [more inside]

Blog-Magazines For Cool Colorful Punk Babes

Lately I've been really into the blog Ribbon Around A Bomb, who writes about female-fronted 70s post-punk, Twin Peaks, feminist art, and leather jackets. I also love The Pulp Zine, which is full of teen dreams and high school small town angst, an obsession with Burger Records, 90s nostalgia, black lipstick and pink hair. I'm looking for more blogs that cover punk, garage rock, femme fun, DIY, weirdo fashion, nostalgia, queerness, creativity, feminism, art, and worship of countercultural idols. Basically, I'm a fully-grown scummy punk boyfemme who wants the experience of flipping through a teen magazine tailored to my interests. What other sites would I love? [more inside]

UK musical do overs and plagiarism, involving punk acts onwards

I am looking for pairs of songs in which 1) one or both artists is a UK act that first rose to prominence in the punk era or later (say 1976 onwards; the other act can be any nationality or from time period), and 2) one of the songs is either a music reworking or theft of the other. I am not looking for covers or samples. Several examples inside. [more inside]

Hearing Protection for Musicians, or, It's Too Loud and I'm Too Old

I am a bass player, and I have recently returned to playing loud, noisy rock and roll after a 4-year hiatus from the stage. I have always eschewed earplugs on stage, on the grounds that they keep me from hearing all of the nuance I need to hear to play effectively with a group. But I ain't no spring chicken anymore, and now I recognize that the real reason I never wore earplugs before, even in mind-bendingly loud bands, was mostly out of misplaced machismo. I can tell that I have lost some hearing over the years, especially in the ear that usually faces the drums, and I want to avoid losing more. I have tried using cheap, disposable foam ear plugs, but I am not satisfied with the sound quality I am getting with them. Are there better ear protection alternatives out there? [more inside]

Obscure 80's Indie New Wave songs

Hello. I am trying to locate a few recordings by obscure indie new wave bands that got stuck in my head in the 80's that I've been trying and failing to locate ever since. I have no idea the names of the bands or artists that recorded the songs, but hopefully I can provide enough information that someone who is familiar with them can identify them. The songs are "Genghis Khan," "Watch out Franco," and "Heart of a Boxer." [more inside]

Find me more Missing Links.

A recent (for me) music find, The Missing Links. I liked the one tune and so got their album and now I'm hunting for more like it. They sound kind of like The Stooges with a great keyboard player. What else sounds like the Stooges with a great keyboard player? Throw me your obscure and not so obscure 60's garage punk recommendations!

Slang Lingo?

I have a friend who has been looking for a song with a line: When I was sixteen the American dream was not a thing of the past He thinks that it was a New Wave song from the early 80s. He's gone through old mix tape liner notes (tapes themselves are long gone) and thinks that it may be "Slang Lingo" by the Puppies but there's virtually no trace of that song on the internet.

Help invigorate a bunch of tired biochemists!

The music that everyone at my lab bench most enjoys working to is stuff like Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers, Justice, etc etc etc. Particularly good are seamlessly mixed live sets. Can anyone recommend any easily obtainable sets from these artists, or similar artists that mightn't be on our radar? We've already exhausted Alive 2007, amazing as it is. The only caveat is no naughty words; everyone was pretty abashed when a senior academic walked by just as SUCK MY DICK / AIN'T THAT SOME SHIT was blasting.

Help Me Find A Rotoscoped Music Video

There's this music video I saw on youtube a year ago by a ska/punk band. It was a rotoscoped video, and I think it was brown or tan. The band sang in Portuguese or maybe Spanish. I think they were from South America. I can't seem to find it again. I can't remember much else about it, nor am I really sure about the band.
