I was refering to earlier stuff:
SISTER of MERCY - Marian
But even so, I admit it's a stretch and many people won't be able to listen beyond the drum machine.
But then again, I can definitely hear "Don't fear The Reaper" following that song on a mix tape... big_smile

Smiths, Johny Marr, yes, absolutely amazing, almost all of it.
(And bone-headed Morrissey does have his own charm...)

Beyond that, thanks for mentioning (early) U2, definitely part of what I was getting at, also The Police and Cocteau Twins!

Come to think of it, it's not just the guitar sound but also the style of singing which I think wasn't very common in the 70s but became very pregnant in the 80s (let's call it melodic male voices for lack of a better description).

+1000, yes. They started as punk/funk. Their second album, their breakout 'Freaky Styley' (1985), was produced by George Clinton. Their last album resembling that style was Blood Sugar Sex Magic. After that, Anthony Kiedas stopped doing heroin and started singing about it, and the music, ironically, instantly sucked. The kids loved it though, and made it hugely popular. I hate them after BSSM. Californication, their most succesful album, is heroin-chic bullshit to me.

I saw them twice in a dive fire-trap in Boston called The Paradise in about '86 and '87. Making fun of the Celtics, tube socks on their dicks for their encores. They were amazing, one of the best bands of those years, and Flea was and still is a mind-blowing bass player.

This wasn't like the Beastie Boys, where everyone could hear that they were white and see them on MTV. When everyone heard Kiedas for the first time back then, there was no MTV video of the Chilis yet and everyone thought he was black.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

I was all set to dis mumble rap, I hate it. So I hit Wikipedia, they said Gucci Mane, I've had coworkers mention Gucci Mane, I looked him up.

Him with Bruno Mars from fall of last year, every word is enunciated. This is very ol' skool...

Likewise, I'm not a fan of This Is America by Childish Gambino/Donald Glover, but this track is just great Funkedelic/Sly and the Family Stone/Andre 3000...

Sweet Jebus, Red Hots used to be so damn funk.

80s/90s white-boy funk. KS and the Sunshine Band funk. What the hell happened to that band? I mean the Red Hot Chili Peppers, I know what happened to KC.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Best Hendrix is Mitch Mitchell Hendrix. Man, I wish Hendrix had lived to play with Miles.

https://vimeo.com/170063784

It's hard to imagine a more perfect fusion of guitar and drums. Harrison and Starr, Summers and Copeland, Townshend and Moon, Gilmour and Mason, Belew and Bruford, Brown and Stubblefield, Zappa and Colaiuta.

Fuck Led Zep and the Stones.

Alright, I like the Stones.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4CrCTndkKc

Who's the other one? Led Zep?

They don't hold up after nearly fifty years. Their influence, yes, but their body of work? No flipping way.
