    Here's a tune I hope to play a-buskin' on the squeezebox when the weather warms up: Satchmo's Go Down Moses, one of the best 20 blues tracks ever cut.

    Simply gorgeous piano soloist; knows to capture the mood as exceedingly few can.

    Evidently, the bloke behind this classic died a few days ago. May he surf forever more the clouds on high.

    Listening nowadays consists of approx 5% new creations and 95% backtracking through the archives. Today's music scene is quite dismal, to me any road.

    No two ways about it. I mean does anyone truly believe that today's newborn, when he turns 24 (my age) in 2043, will listen reverently to the good old sounds of dime-a-dozen shit-hop artist Chief Keef, for example? Gimme a fuckin' break.

    It's not even that there isn't any technical skill involved with the production of the above, or that it's inherently bad; in fact, I have genuine appreciation for hip-hop, trap, whatever. But since when does the tedium of drug use and escapism by itself make for a good song?

    Compare Bowie's Ashes to Ashes, also very clearly to do with addiction (and the pressures of stardom, etc.). It happens to be one of the greatest he or any musician has ever recorded, but not because he just said 'Hey, everyone, guess what?! I do drugs!' Sorry to say, it's not that easy. Try again, sonny.

    Edit: I suppose now I'm a vicious racist for saying so.

    Hip Hop died a death in the late 90s. Still the odd thing will pop up but it's a rarity, in most genres actually.

    Did surf rock make any headway in yer neck of the woods, Hawkeye?

    Yea, verily.

    I think the roses took influence in for a track on their first (second) album.
