Hey I'm new! My name is Leni, my main is @sunflowers. My favorite band is The Who, and I tend to favor 60s/70s/90s rock but also enjoy so many other things: motown, jazz, hip hop/rap, r&b, salsa, soul, blues, reggaetón, and so much more.
My favorite album to play through at the moment is Songs for the Deaf by Queens of the Stone Age.
Fun fact: my first concert ever was a birthday gift from a friend. We saw 98 Degrees (my favorite band at the time was blink-182 lol) and the best part about it was the Baha Men! They opened and were super awesome.
Bandcamp has an interesting list of some of the more esoteric releases on Jello Biafra’s Alternative Tentacles label:
Though there’s one minor mistake: Wesley Willis didn’t use a Casiotone keyboard; he used a Solton Ketron.
Speaking of Bearsville, have I raved about Foghat here yet? Because they were one of the best straight-up rock bands of the 70s, and it's unfortunate that the only thing anyone knows them for is Slow Ride and *maybe* Fool For the City.
Lonesome Dave Peverett (RIP) had such a singular voice. and Rod Price (RIP) was a monster on slide guitar.
My all-time favorite Foghat album has got to be "Stone Blue," which captured them at the absolute height of their game, IMO:
@thermous Boston's radio scene used to be top-notch. end of an era really.
@evilchili you are most welcome my friend ❤️
...and we're back, running v3.1.2, seemingly no worse for wear!
of course, some of the new functionality (announcements and bookmarks being the two that come to mind) isn't yet exposed through our linernotes theme yet, but I'll look at getting that taken care of over the next day or three.
Please let me know if you run into any issues, and thanks for being here!
Hey hey, clubbers, it is me, the admin type person
I will be performing upgrades to our mastodon installation later today. I do not expect any significant downtime, but Sometimes Things Happen, so this is just a general heads up - might get funky in here in about eight hours if something goes awry.
@rgggn I'd start with "Persistence of Time" which, while not indicative of the sound of the rest of their discography, is a solid album (despite getting mixed reviews). Then "Among the Living", which is very much indicative of the sound of the rest of their discography imo.
Here's the setlist from #MrBungle's show yesterday night, their first show in 20 years. https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/mr-bungle/2020/the-fonda-theatre-los-angeles-ca-3398e85d.html
@rgggn somebody's gotta...I can't imagine these shows not getting bootlegged
