How come the 'What Music?' thread is currently locked?

I know there's been a lot of recent discussion about Hillage/Daevid Allen/Gong (and I admitted to an enduring affection for Fairport Convention) but this is going a bit far, surely?

Come on Mods, explain yourselves!

I locked it cos it was well over the 1500 posts (anything more than this and the auto-delete goes into a spasm) I was waiting for someone to notice it and start a new thread Wink

I've edited your OP so you can now carry on as it were, new thread and all that.

At the moment I'm listening to anything by Pink Fairies, The Pretty Things and early Hawkwind.

Seems like that entire hippy/early punk crossover is about the only genre that hasn't been mined to buggery in the last few years by spotty media students.

Hmmm....at the tender age of 48, should I put an advert in the local instrument shop and blow the cobwebs off the strat.....? Laughing

Just listened to an advance copy of the new Rammstein album , Rosenrot. It's not been released yet , but is probably one of the best albums so far this year . Opening track Benzin is a killer .

In a word, YES. Get a big Marshal amp and make that guitar wail, and severely annoy anyone living in the street.

It amazes me how you can have these musicians ( I am assuming in the UK) that people across the Atlantic Ocean have never heard of.

I have never in my life heard of Hillage, Daevid Allen/Gong, Fairport Convention, mudvayne, Pink Fairies, The Pretty Things, Hawkwind, Mew, Glass Handed Kites, or Rammstein.

Mudvayne are from the US, and that's about as much as I know about them.

No doubt all will be made clear at www.mudvayne.com , if you are prepared to put up with the "interesting" site navigation, which I wasn't.

Fairport Convention? Folk Rock group formed in 1967 (I think) by Richard Thompson et al. Vocalist most associated with the group is Sandy Denny (died 1978), who duetted 'The Battle of Evermore' with Robert Plant on Led Zeppelin's fourth album. Fairport have released zillions of albums since then, but my favourite remains their fourth, 'Liege and Lief' from 1969. Think the current incarnation of the group still undertakes the occasional North American tour.

I take it you've heard of Rush? Wink

Which has just prompted me to dig out my Fairport and Sandy albums. I second the view that 'Liege and Lief' is their best - I never get bored of their version of Matty Groves.

Before that I was listening to the Monkees boxset 'Listen to the Band' and digging - as the youth might say - the country/Byrds stuff. Gotta love Woolhat for that.

Daevid Allen/Gong,


I've an acquaintance, who was later diagnosed as schizophrenic, who claimed that Allen was sending him telepathic messages telling him to take up the bass guitar, practice and join the band at a specific date in the future.

He bought a second bass and practiced, often as much as 18 hours a day just waiting for the specified day. Sadly, his delusions also developed and he started claiming to hear messages in Gong/Allen tracks that were aimed at him.

The day eventually came and he travelled south to find Allen who told him he was mistaken. Cognitive dissonance followed, delusions toppled and the bloke had a breakdown.

Who said the drugs don't work?
