Catch 22 will forever be the foundation of ska in my mind. They were amazing and streetlight is also just as amazing! Both are my all time favorite band.
Catch 22 were the first ska band I ever heard and they still remain my favourite to this day. I especially loved this track as I played the flute and this song allowed me to try and emulate a ska song.
Keasbey Nights may or may not be better with Streelight Manifesto.
Since this comment will always be posted in a Catch 22 or Streelight Manifesto post. I make no distinction one way or the other, just acknowledging that it will 100% be discussed.
Although, this song is definitely not one of my favorites.
It's honestly not one of my favorites either, I still like it a bunch though. I mainly posted it because it's the 20th anniversary of 1/17/98
Ode to my favourite band and singer in the 90s.
Found so much comfort listening to them back then.
I just burst into tears when I saw this. Her voice and the music of The Cranberries were part of the soundtrack of my youth. RIP Delores.
Dammit. The Cranberries were the first concert I saw when I was a kid. I still listen to the Cranberrries almost 20 years later. She’s gone way too soon. RIP Dolores.
No, please don't let this be true. I just read that she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder a few years ago. I hope it wasn't suicide. :(
This is such a damn shame, and so young too. Linger and zombie are two songs from the 90s that constantly play in my head to this day. RIP
David Bowie died like two years ago
2018 has officially begun
This is really sad, she was only 46 :( RIP
Damn they just played Linger after the news broke on the radio and the wave of nostalgia and sadness that swept over me was quite something. An incredible Irish band. RIP.
What the hell. Rest in peace to one of the most beautiful voices I've heard.
I have a Cranberries cover band called The Lingonberries. We have all called in sick and going to preform at out local pub. It's going to be a hard night for all of us.
When the song peaks, throw the tape recorder in the bathtub.
This song feels like a tease, I always wish it was about twice as long. But then, maybe the tease is why it’s perfect.
Suddenly, there was a terrible roar all around us, and the sky was full of what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, and a voice was screaming
Don’t fuck with me now man, I am Ahab!
This video is from Monty Python at the Hollywood Bowl, and if you like this sketch I suggest you watch the whole thing. One of my all-time favourites.
I need to hear this sung by Sean Connery.
I still find it odd to see Terry Gilliam on stage or in front of a camera. I know he's a member, but growing up on MPFC, you usually only ever saw him when they showed the cartoonist "die" or something. He was not a regular on-camera member, and the few times where he was in a sketch, he never seemed as smooth as the other Pythons. Though, I have to admit he was pretty brilliant with those coconuts though.
Everyone discovers Monty Python in middle school or early high school. If they miss it then, they miss it forever. Same goes for Weird Al.
I'm upvoting this because it upsets me
When I hear trap remixes born out of pop culture and memes, I always think about how someone a century from now will listen to it and the entire meaning and culture of the song may be lost on them. It's just fascinating to me.
This is fire
your ebola is not allowed in my land.
“I mean, I’m hoping that people will come along and see me just because, or maybe more than because I’m a curiosity."🙁
Farting into the mouths of prostitutes you mean? Or setting up pee-cams in women’s toilets in your restaurant? You will have to be specific
Please Eric don't turn into what Chuck Berry was in his later years.
It makes a lot of sense though. I've been in a band for 3 years and play probably 50-60 shows, as well as going to probably 100 shows/concerts in my life and my hearing is pretty shitty. Older professional musicians have been to hundreds. I just recently starting wearing ear plugs cause that shit isn't a joke. I say "what?" 20 times a day
Beyond psyched for this, it's been way too long!
They have a tough act to follow. Coming up with an album after AM is some challenge
Pfft. Like they have a weak album.
WHAT? You are now banned from /sub/arcticmonkeys
Edit: Seriously tho, give it a second listen. It's a lyrical masterpiece with some beautiful b-sides like Catapult and Don't forget whose legs your on.
The memories of Elite Beat Agents. Also this is probably the most 'early 2000s' song I know.
I loved this song as a kid.
Rock band hailing from New Zealand noted for their quirky sound and hit song "Walkie Talkie Man" which was featured on Apple's iPod advertisement. The video for "Walkie Talkie Man" was directed by Michel Gondry (White Stripes, Bjork, Foo Fighters) and garnered 5 MTV award nominations and 1 Grammy nomination. It was also included in the Nintendo DS rhythm game Elite Beat Agents, as covered Jason Paige as well as being used in the animated film Robots and used heavily by the BBC.
They have done a cover of AC/DC's Back In Black.
Formed in 1999, Steriogram got their name from two bands that members had previously performed with - Rogergram and Steriosugar.
Steriogram's first single release, Soccerstar was mediocre but upon the release of their second single, White Trash saw the group success soar. Like many bands, Steriogram toured New Zealand in a friend's van without any support crew, doing gigs where they could. In 2002, still unsigned, they joined several other New Zealand bands in the annual Boost Mobile School's Tour, playing for free during high school lunch hours to get exposure, as well as at bars at night.
In 2002, while recording at a rented beach house they were spotted by an American Label Scout for Capitol Records who had come upon their music video for White Trash on the internet and were signed to Capitol Records later that year.
2004 also saw the release of their debut album, Schmack! which has seen six singles released from it.
There were two main factors contributing to Steriogram’s immediate success. Firstly, the national secondary school tour they went on helped to generate a wider fan base, as it allowed many who hadn’t heard of Steriogram before to enjoy their unique sound. The other factor was due to their internet site and the use of fans' loyalty. On the site fans were able to join up for the band’s newsletter and then eventually to what was known as a 'fan street pack'. This was sent to the fan via mail and contained promo CDs that had five of the tracks to be featured on their upcoming CD, and large amounts of stickers. This was where Steriogram relied on the support of fans, to hand out the promo CDs and stickers. These points proved to be very successful and rewarding for Steriogram as a new band.
