And of course this one. Maybe the very best song of the group.

Presbyterian Mixture in my Savinelli Tundra, morning news on the I-Pad, cup of Joe and Duke Ellington for comfort. Is this heaven or still Minneapolis?

Feeling a little mellow, still smoking Rougaroux, listening to Wilco on vinyl.

Boney M, followed by Bob Marley and the Wailers, on vinyl 😄 Both purchased from the second hand store. I also got a Eurythmics album I’ve not listened to yet. It doesn’t look in as good condition as the other albums I’ve bought, so I need to clean it before I let it anywhere near the new turntable I’ve bought! This beauty:

Have always loved Marley. Can’t watch the new movie about him cuz I noticed it was rated PG13! How can you possibly make an accurate, true to life account of Marley’s life within a PG13 story? That turntable is a beauty! I may have to upgrade from my cheapy. Dug deep in the vinyl collection and just found an old Moby Grape (Truly Fine Citizen) album—next up.

Yeah, I’m also a bit apprehensive about the new Marley film. I’ll definitely watch it, of course. My curiosity will get the better of me! 😄

I’m with you Lee—I’ll probably watch it too out of curiosity. Besides, they’ll have to play some of his music anyway, and that will be somewhat redeeming.

I like Eurythmics and everything from that time/style like Depeche Mode, New Order, Soft Cell, Spandau Ballet, Pet Shop Boys, Pseudo Echo... The clubber people from 80's knew how to party properly. A movie i like about that time is "24hours Party People".

I would like to ask you guys if some of you know who is Giorgio Moroder. He is getting old and i believe he is around 84 now.

Around 10 years ago the guys from Daft Punk called him to work in a Project that for the guys of DaftPunk was consider the last chapter of their history and after that they stopped their career because they felt like they have done everything they could in the Electronic music.

I'm a huge fan of Daft Punk but Giorgio Moroder is the guy that opened the door for a whole generation that explored his way to make music. Creating the pattern of "Rolling bass" he simply created a music style that we know as Disco Music.

Even though some people were doing crazy things like Kraftwerk a bit before, the one who got all together: music knowledge plus the operational tricks of a synthetizer to make something that was a scaffolding for a whole movement that keeps kicking til now was Giorgio Moroder.

He is the guy behind Donna Summer just to say an example. He is considered the father of Disco music, grandfather of House music and all sort of styles that came after like the Synthpop from 80's, Trance from 90's and all Rave culture that still strong even nowadays.

The Eurythmics citation made me think in all of this and i'll leave a video here with him talking about how he ended up working with the guys from Daft Punk.

Moroder is a treasure! I’m a big fan of electronic and the genres it spawned, especially industrial. When I heard Kraftwerk in the 1970’s, it was so different and new I was hooked. Nice little snippet of Moroder there.

I didn't get the warehouse and indoor Club parties full of "acidhouse" but the psychedelic movement that came from Goa(the last chapter of hippies as we know) and Trance and PsyTrance open air raves i got a lot and  kinda still on kicking when possible. There is a Project called Shpongle that make one of the best psychedelic and Electronic music from all times.

I think I went through phases of listening to each kind of electronic music. I started with Prodigy, really. Then went through various incarnations of house music, then techno, then trance, then back to garage… etc.. I tend to listen to chilled trance these days, if I’m listening to electronic music, which is usually when I’m driving.

The Prodigy was great! I still have a number of their CD’s. Might have to pull them out for a little nostalgia when I’m done with Ministry.

I went a prodigy concert in 1998 and it was one of the best thing i did in my life. I remember DJ marky opening the party with his powerful drum n bass and the crowd was ready to enjoy the crazy Prodigy show. They were in the tour of the album "The fat of the land". 

I would like to introduce you this album:  

The band Shpongle is (or are?)  what i consider the best psychedelic chill out band in the Planet.

lol! I was talking with my stepson last week about music in its chronological context. I was discussing The Cars in particular. I told him that there was no way possible to realize what it was like hearing them when they came out in 1979 if you weren’t there. I would have said the same thing if we had been discussing Kraftwerk.

Well that album was over too quickly. Moving on to something with a bit more energy. Listening now to Ministry on CD. Won’t mention the album name so I don’t trigger some algorithm.

Barenaked Ladies, Stunt. I saw them in concert in the 90's and still remember what a great show they put on.

Nice set up! I am guessing you are listening to the turn table, unless it is a trick question- oh wait, now I see it. I would tell you if we had instant messaging, but I will keep quiet so others can play.

I´d like to recommend you guys a movie, of course filled with lots of music. It´s called CBGB and tells the story of a club primarily built as a Country, BlueGrass and Blues club but become the meca of punk rock.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1786751/

If you like Iggy Pop, Blondie, Ramones, Talking Heads, i totally belive you should watch it!

How everything ran in a totally different way that the club owner predict is what makes everything magic.

Great pick! He does put on awesome live shows. I saw him in the 80’s and then a couple of times in the past ten or so years because my stepson ended up being a fan of him also.
