Epic Space Music Mix by SG Music

Recently was suggested this sound-piece and it is very interesting: reminds that it does not matter in what year we Earthlings(cause we all use same planet) live as long as we carry within ourselves only thing that makes us human - humanity. Also comments under video are thought provocing and supports ideas on other threads in LQ. We need to do something just dunno yet what exactly. More advanced civilizations can communicate without flying here but it is more about us i guess. We need to change in some direction..unless already changed.

Trying to get back to normal after a shocking fortnight.

Chapel of Disease - ...And As We Have Seen The Storm, We Have Embraced The Eye

Heavy metal / death metal / blues rock

And done so well. If I'd heard this last year it would have been in my top ten, but I don't care about albums of the year anymore. This is just an excellent piece of work.

FredGSanford that tune is from one of my Top 10 Desert Island albums. It IMHO is a bona fide Masterpiece. It's great to know someone else on LQN loves it, too.

I agree, Lysander666, with a minor reservation. I am something of an anomaly. In college, I was the only person in my English or Engineering classes with both long hair and sandals and a slide rule on my belt. I didn't fit perfectly anywhere. I was too imaginative for the Science crowd and too conservative for the artsy... except in music. In college I began the shift from acoustic Folk to Electric. In the late 60s I attended the Newport Folk festival largely to see Bob Dylan and Joan Baez, and while I was pleased with her performqance and feel in love with Delta Blues, Dylan was electric and Big Brother and the Holding Company "blew my socks off". They had just released Cheap Thrills but I didn't know it having never heard it. I was instantly hooked on electricity and began studying Lead.

By the time music videos began appearing on television, first very late at night on the USA Network iirc I was spending the vast majority of nights in motel rooms while on tour and hungrily watching them. Then came MTV and sometimes I'd arrive early to our motel rooms just to get more MTV time in. Sorry for the long explanation but I didn't welcome "Unplugged" like people born in the 60s and 70s did. I enjoyed it but kinda resented bands being stripped of "the sound and fury" of electricity.

FWIW this is one of the songs I heard that day in Newport that forever changed me https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJhioy7fEuQ

and of course the mighty, mighty --- Summertime ---

I think it works depending on who the band are and how it was done. I have seen some Unplugged performances which we pretty dull, but the Pearl Jam one was excellent. The same for the Nirvana one.

I've generally always been critical of rock and metal bands doing acoustic performances. It doesn't work most of the time, it's just boring and there are very few that can carry it off. One of whom is Alkonost and another is my favourite band, W.A.S.P. The Alkonost works because they're a folk metal band, so playing the song[s] acoustically make them sound like normal traditional folk songs. It works well.

Alkonost - acoustic version of Русалка - original version.

W.A.S.P - The Great Misconceptions of Me [acoustic] - original version.

As I say, it's entirely down to who's doing it.

Again, I appreciate the Shakespeare reference.

Thank you Lysander666 for reminding me of the early days of music videos as it has stimulated a sort of quest that I had all but forgotten, that I will make possibly my last feeble attempt. Once more into the fray...

I saw a video one time only very late at night and I'm not sure if it was the title or just a blurb flashing at the end of the video but somewhere in or around it is the first clue, a line of text that read "BUT IS IT ART?"

It started with some guy walking into a room with one completely white wall and several buckets of paint on a dropcloth. As I recall I think intially he was smoking a cigarette and contemplating the wall, and perhaps making a few tentative strokes with a paintbrush. In the foreground was a tall four-legged stool, almost like a bar stool and in walks another guy with a Bass Guitar strapped around his shoulders who sits on the stool. he begins playing and at the time it was like no Bass player I'd ever heard. I strongly suspect it was Jaco Pastorius but id so, I hadn't heard of him then and not again for over a decade after.

While the man plays amazing Bass with an incredible mixture or rhythm and melody punctuated with sweet harmonics, the painter gets going in earnest. As the bassman builds to a crescendo the painter becomes just as enthised and soon is plailing qabout tossing whole cans of paint at the wall and even slipping in the resulting pools of paint on the floor and falling rather violently once or twice getting a good 50% of his clothing be-spotted in paint. The song and the painting end and they walk off-camera together and the above text flashes on the screen.

Did anyone else here ever see this incredible music video? I have searched for years and can't find even a reference which isn't too surprising since I have so little hard clues to go on.
