The Listening Club - 27th August 2017

Greetings folks,

Well then. Anyone that's been following me or @JimMcCauley over the last few days will have an inkling into how our week has gone. Sadly it's completely impossible for me to even attempt to summarise here what an intense experience that was, all attendees are still busy processing everything that happened. But yes, it was all completely unexpected and exactly what we'd been hoping for at the same time. Complete and utter madness of the finest kind. And the birth of something new too? We shall see...

Back in the "normal" world, last week here chez #LC, @emmaprice was in the chair, providing a festival bimble bopping experience courtesy of Jain's "Zanaka". Thanks to her for the pick, and for sailing the frisbaton around the world to @EastVanHalen, who is here with this week's intro...

"Hey all:

This week's entry is a bunch of things I usually don't like. Shouty punk rawk singer? One too many guitars? Concept album *with* shouty singer and many guitars? Hell no. Yet I love this -- like, goosebumps-level love.

Other things about this band: made Spin's album of the year and the cover of the NME, having sold only a couple of tens of thousands of units. Got frisked when they went to the Polaris Prize ceremonies (they won). And because I love making you listen to my friends' music, one of my comrades plays one of those guitars. 

This will not help Eric and Jim's hangovers. Play it loud. Cheers."
