When I see musicians under 35 I'm often disappointed.

- the mode of Consumption - the Medium has gradually shifted: everybody knows it's Trash - but it only has to keep your attention for a Second - & then there's more instantly delivered - w/ Visuals - something else to replace it - instantly. Scandal becomes part of the Marketing Strategy - >>Music is actually completely incidental.<<
...As Peter Buck said: I thot w/ Dylan - &tc. - Meaning had been put into it, & surplanted Las Vegas for good - but Las Vegas came back !!

P-90: I think i'm lucky. When i lived in nj it was nearly impossible to see a good live band-prob not because there were none,but cuz there were few good venues.Even in nyc 95% of the time the unknown-to-me bands i'd see were recycled poseur crap. But there's apparently a creative momentum were i live. (i shant say where..."upstate-ish")

one band I can't make up my mind about is Ladytron.....had massive high hopes for them, I like them but they still don't really bowl me over. I like much of their music....at least most of it

PAcific Standard, I have a job to do and you're clearly new to my worksite. Everyone else here, as you cuddle with your Bee Gees, Beatles, Phil Spector, and monster influential fave bands, JUST REMEMBER they ALL came out of some factory.

- those bands get on Letterman &tc. after *one* trendy hit, & no experience - to pay dues, The Beatles played eight hours every night in Hamburg & lived off of beer cornflakes & speed - & it shows...Fashion supersedes Statement - which - yeah - has always happened in Pop
- but fer one hot Minute once upon a time - Pop & Art got frisky w/ each other...

...I hate to say it - but Back in the Day - even the Trash was good Trash - now the Trash is just toxic Non-Food. FMU proves that 'nothing new is good' is nonsense - but contempo *Top40* has to prove itself to me @ this point...

Can we get some Jimmy Sturr for the polka category, or did they eliminate that Grammy?

I have no standards whatsoever. Play anything.
  Fri. 1/24/14 11:54pm LovecraftDude888:

me too. Most of it I hear is wretched but some of it I like. I heard Camera Obscura at Borders a few years back and liked it...but they are not really a Top 40 band are they?

I have lots of standards, many of them implicitly contradictory. Play anything!
  Fri. 1/24/14 11:55pm LovecraftDude888:

and then find out later that a lot of people hate them cause they're like some "prefab hipster pop band". cannot win

I just am waiting for the Peter Lemongello comeback tour!

@ RevRab : Pseu is absolutely right, pop ALWAYS came from factories, let's not romanticize the past into total bullshit here.

@Coelacanth: Yeah, there's Autotune that you're supposed to hear, like an obvious "effect", and there's the sneaky, subtle Autotune that just cleans up poor singing.
  Fri. 1/24/14 11:58pm LovecraftDude888:

it does? then how does a band like XTC come about?I don't get it..or do you mean just the slickest most commercial pop?
  Fri. 1/24/14 11:59pm coelacanth:

Pseu, Thank you.Great show. (And though you may think i'm another newcomer here,i've listened to your show since you started...Just usually on the radio.)

OK: Katy Perry not bad. Rihanna: talented, sure.
Bruno Mars: suckass bad.

- sure P-90 - it's Show & Biz : It's a Balance that only sometimes makes Magic. I think the Biz part overwhelmed the Music part in contempo Top40. Listen to it of you want. I could care less.

and a bit in the 80s )The Tubes--

Not "too cool," just too old

P-90- Yeah like i said,i should get that...But then again,i dont mind crappy singing!

No, no, no, Roar earworm is insidious but good!

That Paul McCroakey track wasn't bad at all, either
Avatar    Sat. 1/25/14 12:02am Ken From Hyde Park:

@P-90 - RHCP should help salvage the SB halftime show. Maybe Flea will play bass naked and start a huge scandal.
  Sat. 1/25/14 12:02am coelacanth:

(except my own crappy singing)
