[listening] What's On The Turntable?

Not put it on yet, but itching to clear out some peace and quiet to listen to this lovely limited edition blue vinyl I picked up from Sainsbury's the other day...

ATM the moment I'm listening to a lot of the VERY early ELO stuff (from their first album - called "No Answer" in the states for a very Spinal Tap reason) and related Roy Wood acoustic stuff of around the same time. And thinking how appropriate it would be for SteamPunk. Contemporary (OK 70's) pop-rock played with acoustic instruments.

Energy of the Daleks ain't a bad little story. And I'm generally pretty critical of:

A) a lot of the Big Finish stuff
B) audio dramas featuring the Daleks. (There's a Dalek Empire one from the 60's that's like a sustained attack from a sonic cannon.)
 
I've ended up doing single artist retrospectives recently.

First I listened to the Tragically Hip's albums in order (inspired by the passing of Gord Downey)...

Then recently I did Bowie's 70's studio albums in order.

Currently working through Fish's post Marillion studio albums.

Have also had side detours into Royal Blood (White Stripes-esque, when Jack White prioritised kick-ass tunes over performance art) and Greta Van Fleet (seventies boogies rock tribute by bunch of young musicians - possible soundtrack for my Forbidden Lands game if I run one).

The new single from Jason Charles Miller - In The Wasteland. Of course some of you might recognise Jason from Geek & Sundry.

 
Currently listening to "Beautiful Garbage" - Shirley Manson and Co's third album which I didn't reckon much to on first release, but all these years later I'm rather enjoying it.
 
Boomtown Rats. Finally got the box set of their first six albums. Tonic for the Troops (which I have on vinyl) is s classic.
