I love keeping track of the music I listen to with #Lastfm . I've been using it since 2006 with one deletion of my account in 2011. I totally regretted it. I created another account with in days. It is the only social media account I have other than Mastodon. Good article from Noisey (Vice magazine)

Lorna Doom, bassist with cult Los Angeles punk band Germs, dies: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2019/jan/17/lorna-doom-germs Thanks to @chaemmes for sending that my way.
I started watching A Million Little Things last night. During episode 2 Willis Earl Beal's #cover of Don't You (Forget About Me) came on. Some how I missed the release of that last year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htkwwRZJmd4 I'll be adding that to my #SundayMorningUnderTheCovers #Playlist I have on my computer.
This is wild: a guy from LA faked a band (hiring session musos), faked footage of packed gigs, created a fake booking agency, and landed a tour of Europe. None of the 100s of ticket buyers showed up, of course, and then the shit hit the fan: #rockfraud
I was lucky enough to catch #BraveNewWaves before it went off the air. I discovered so many bands and albums from that program. Here is a good post from last year on #Bandcamp about the #CBC program .: https://cbcbravenewwaves.bandcamp.com/

A thing I like to do is go here https://archive.org/details/78rpm and sort by least views and listen to music no one else has in forever and have a lovely old-timey feel to my day
Today I was reminded of the 100th anniversary of the murder of #RosaLuxemburg from one of @priryo 's toots (https://linernotes.club/web/statuses/101422180988948833) . It made me think of these lyrics from the Redskins's song It Can Be Done:
"And in another country workers rose again
1919, 1919 in Berlin
But they didn't learn the lessons
From the Russians that they should
Revolution, revolution was drowned in blood"
I came to this band because a friend told me they "sing like the Supremes and walk like The Clash" . I was (still am) a huge Clash fan so I checked them out. I'd say it is an apt description of the band.

After reading "Kondo instructs devotees to take each item in their house in hand and decide whether or not it gives them a visceral thrill. If it doesn’t, to the landfill it goes. It’s a level of minimalism that would make even Philip Glass uncomfortable." from this article : https://www.thestar.com/life/relationships/2016/01/14/why-decluttering-guru-marie-kondo-is-wrong.html I wanted to listen to #PhilipGlass.
Listening to Bowie's Blackstar and having a hard time with the fact that he'll have been gone 3 years on the 10th. What a remarkable final achievement this album is. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqW-kvU5cLg
My Uncle is pretty cool/hip as he joined Liner Club Notes when I asked him to. I even got him to use Last.fm so I could see what he was listening to: https://www.last.fm/user/RonnieFronco
My Uncle @RonnieFronco is one of the biggest influences in my life & especially w/ music. He turned me on to music I'd never heard before. From his record collection I heard The Clash's London Calling to Public Image Ltd.'s Flowers of Romance to the Violent Femmes' self titled album to Spirit of the West's Labour Day and on and on. He gives all the music magazines he reads to me when he is done. Yesterday I got my next batch of music education.
Wow! Some more photos from the recording session: https://www.instagram.com/p/BsllurshDhG/
