Oh, haha.
Nope. I din't know that.
Never owned a Rory album.
Have his songs on tape you see, made copies from friends.
Old-school style.

"Jinx" is actually taken from THIS Tuxedo Moon song

They are a band.
Yeah they're pretty disturbed.
San Fransisco band, left the U.S. when Reagan first got elected declaring it a "Fascist State" Lived throughout Europe. Blaine Reininger (the violinist) lives in Athens and the Keybord player was a member of the Zappatistas up until recently...

Very educated people.
And very Avant Garde music at the time...

I saw them live recently, they were celebrating their 30 years.
They were great.

nice one. as i feel, if there's anyone disturbed by something there can be a very good reason for it, and also an education behind it.

i like The Verve, very thought-provoking music. i saw them on their comeback tour last month at the Roundhouse Theatre in Camden Town, a fantastic 2-hour set. total respect :wink:

Yeah, The Verve are good.
But I can't listen to the Bittersweet Symphony anymore.
They were playing it 24/7 here when it first came out.

My mom loves the Verve btw...

lol yeah i got my mum into the verve also, bit worrying really, i wouldn't class them as mumrock :lol:

i got into them at a defining time in 97 when they released Urban Hymns, my bro-in-law/best friend had just passed away and i was living up north, being a southerner amongst other factors i felt pretty isolated. the verve brought me out of myself a lot. music is power. since then i done the walky swagger in the BSS vid ever since and never looked back. bought their back catalogue, i still love that BSS song, especially the extended version 8):D

you should hear their early 90's stuff such as Gravity Grave, She's A Superstar, and One Way To Go.

Yes, I can see why you like them so much...
And definitely not momrock. But my mom is a bit of a nutter.
She listens to Iron Maiden, Metallica and System of a Down as well...

Music IS power, that's why it's been so much hunted.
So many forbidden songs in Greece duing the dictatorship...

A musical genius once said "Music cannot change the world. But it CAN change it within people's minds. And then in their own turn, they can go on and change the world. For better or for worse, that remains to be seen."

incidentally, i heard about this ban on arcade/computer games in greece not so long back. how's that going?, seems a bit of a lost cause to me.

Yeah. Well it went like this:

The previous goverment (who call themselves socialists but are nowhere near to socialism) voted the ban on arcade halls because they were hosting gambling machines (slot machines and what have you) and that kind of gambling is illegal in Greece, unless you are in a goverment sponsored casino.
So anyway they banned the halls, and it unofficialy spread into an internet caffe ban too.
So pretty soon you had police raids in every single cafe with computers in it.

It went like that for a year or two and then the E.U. said "WAIT! What are you stupid backward fucks doing? We 're trying to modernize Europe and you're shutting down internet cafes? Are you daft or what?
Here's a nice fine for you to pay. And you better re open them. That 'll teach you to be cavemen."

So for once I was actually happy the E.U. stepped in and smacked the head of the f**king Orthodox Church a little.
Cos nobody else gets to say "Shut up, here's a kite go and fly it" to the Church apart from the E.U. :D

So now things are back to normal

Woooo, well there's true democracy for you, to smack the extreme politically-motivated religous nuts in the mouth giving 'em a fat lip in the process. they can't use gambling machines as some excuse to ban our violent computer games.

seriously though, heh. gambling is one thing, which i don't do myself...but virtual violence does compensate for the real thing. let people have their fun i say, we're only venting off our frustration by killing pixels after all. better than doing it for real :D

...or am i slightly wrong?
