  1. Your Fantasy 5 Piece

    You have 5 categories: 1. Lead Vocalist 2. Rhythm Guitar 3. Lead Guitar 4. Bass 5. Drums Name your optimum all time band, and you must consider how they would sound if they actually played together. Pick from any music genre.
  2. You qualify for this thread if you've listened to more than half the album in question, you own an genuine physical specimen (or legitimate download) and aren't in your car. If you can be arsed? - A pic and a snippet you deem proper. To kick off...
  3. The VT Musicians Thread

    I could swear we already had one of these, but a quick search yields no results. Anywho, having only just realised that kingysilver's band had an EP out last year (that I totally forgot to look into until yesterday ) and having already been enjoying juanpabloangel18's musical endeavours for some time, I'm keen to have a listen to some more output from our VT brethren. So I invite the creatively-inclined amongst you to hawk thyselves in this very thread. All abilities/styles welcome, even if it's something as basic as recreating the works of The Wurzels through jug-blowing (I'm looking at you, Farmer Eames).
  4. Anyone tried it (invite only at the moment, and no I haven't got any to give yet)? It's effin brilliant. Thousands and more thousands of songs and artists right at your fingertips. Excellent audio quality and for those of you who know me, it takes a bit to get my approval. It's a streaming service but buffering doesn't exist. Feck knows how they do it. The only thing missing is a client for a mobile so you can listen on the go and not only at your computer. It's free with about one ad an hour as far as I can tell. Completely ad free cost you about a tenner a month but you can listen 24/7 either way. I sound like a sales drone but this is exactly what I want from an online music service. And yes, It works on a mac! :winkold: Edit: Forgot the link http://www.spotify.com/
  5. The Concert/Gig Thread

    not seen a thread purely for people to say what gigs concerts or festivals they are going to, Iif people start using it then it could help others spot something they may have missed or would be interested in going to. any way just got my tickets come through for bob dylan next wednesday at the NIA cant wait now man im buzzing i know he is an old man but he is a proper legend and one of my musical hero's so it should be great
  6. The Jazz Thread

    Why not? Here's a
  7. Playlists

    As much as I still buy a lot of music in physical format, mainly vinyl, I do find subscribing to streaming service useful. I use Spotify, mainly for being out and about and in the car. A long time ago we used to have this big collaborative VT playlist which people added to but that was a bit messy and a lot of skipping was required. I do however like creating playlists (must be my inner DJ coming out). It's also fairly easy to share playlists, so why not have a topic where you can share your playlists. You'll obviously have to say which streaming service the playlist is for, it will also have to be made public. Give a brief description of what the playlist is and provide a link
  8. The classical music thread

    OK, this may die on its feet, or end up being just me, Xann and theunderstudy (same thing, I suppose). But this is the place for "classical" (in its widest sense) music discussion - what you like, what you hate, recommendations, questions, general chat. Me? Currently grooving on that Stravinsky box set I mentioned in the "cheer you up" thread. Anybody else listening to this stuff?
  9. Desert Island VillaTalk

    Ok, bit of fun... You are going to live on a remote island for a year for some reason. Let's say for an experiment in isolation. No internet or contact with the outside world. There is power, and running water and regular food/provisions delivered so you won't starve or start smelling like a dead badger. However, entertainment is hard to come by. So to combat boredom, you can take the following to keep you sane... 3x albums 3x books 3x films 1x tv boxset 1x extra entertainment object (could be a guitar, or a mountain bike, or a football, or a surfboard). Basically, something to pass the time. So, what would be on your list?
  10. Where's the junglist and the dubsters at on VT? Gimme a holla, I know you're out there somewhere, what's your preference? I love downtempo, electronic, dub, reggae, uk hiphop, jungle, anything the NME aren't keen on, looking for some more reggae to discover at the mo, I've rinsed the Jah Cure album to death now.
  11. Best decade for music?

    What would everybody say is the best decade for Music? Personally I favour 80s music, but I would say the 90s (excluding Boyzone and such) was a very good decade with bands such as Oasis and Blur making it special. the choice is yours ladies.
  12. link I'll start with Bob Dylan's "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue"... Actual lyric: "Take what you have gathered from coincidence" I thought it was: "Take what you have gathered from cold wind so dense"
  13. black sabbath!

    Were they the greatest band ever?
  14. What's your earworm?

    I don't recall having a thread like this before but I'm daily plagued by the most annoying songs getting stuck in my head so I thought it might be helpful for us to share what we're currently humming in the hopes that someone else's song is less annoying and might replace it. (Alternatively of course, you might end up with a really skull-crushingly annoying song planted in your head as a result of this thread but them's the breaks.) This morning - for no apparent reason, I have this on repeat on my noggin':
  15. Top 10 Albums 2016

  16. Top 10 Albums

    We have a top 10 films and artists thread, so I thought it'd be interesting to list our top 10 albums(or however many you can manage; it's bloody difficult). I think that it's quite interesting how our top albums might be from different artists to those in our top 10. In a random order: Aja - Steely Dan Close to the Edge - Yes Thriller or Off the Wall - Michael Jackson Morning View - Incubus Lateralus - Tool Deloused in the Comatorium - The Mars Volta The Nightfly - Donald Fagen Total Life Forever - Foals Crack the Skye - Mastodon Undecided on which Porcupine Tree album to put here. (apologies if this thread has already existed)
  17. The 90s revival night

    1990 1991 1992. E's are good, E's are good, these 'effin E's are good. I wonder what he means? 1993 1994
  18. New Music 2016

    their latest is pretty decent too Blandy Tried this last night. Very cool, found myself drifting off to sleep (compliment btw) listening to it.
  19. 80s Party!

    Inspired by the 80s music challenge thing that's going about Facebook at the moment, let's have an 80s party! Post your favourite 80s tunes, and let's dance! Only one rule, songs must have been originally released between 01/01/1980 & 31/12/1989. Other than that, have at it! Lets kick things off...
  20. Post your preferred format in here. I haven't got one at the moment, bit of a dilemma.
  21. music to make you feel better

    I've been going through a pretty **** rough patch just lately, work is pissing me off, I have absolutely zero money (because of my shit job), people I know dying, people really close to me having pretty major health scares pretty much everything that can get thrown at me has been thrown at me in the last few weeks. Normally I never let things get to me at all and I can just plod on day by day but this time I found myself feeling really low, haven't been speaking to anyone, I dont think I have held a single conversation with anyone at work in over a week (nothing overly new there but still) Anyways I woke up this morning the usual thoughts ran through my head and I was pissed off again within about 30 seconds of waking up, then walking to the bus stop I put on the stone roses and almost straight away I had a smile on my face thinking back to good times I've had listening to the album over the last 15 years. I had a spring in my step for the first time in weeks, thinking about the laughs I had at college, the piss ups that we have had in our back gardens with it blasting out, the heaton park gig last year etc etc. Just made me think how **** powerful music can be and how it can affect your mood, for the time being at least the country music is going to the bottom of the pile and the happier shit is coming out. Does anyone else have any specific albums they pull out to cheer themselves up when they are **** off with life in general?
  22. Eurovision Song Contest 2016

    BBC1 @ 8pm this Saturday LIVE from the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden. The semi finals were held Tuesday and Thursday night, with the running order draw made early this morning. It is as follows; Belgium Czech Republic The Netherlands Azerbaijan Hungary Italy Israel Bulgaria Sweden Germany France Poland Australia Cyprus Serbia Lithuania Croatia Russia Spain Latvia Ukraine Malta Georgia Austria United Kingdom Armenia Ukraine are being tipped for success with their politically tinged track 1944 sung by Jamala, herself from Crimea. They didn't take part last year due to financial reasons and the on going conflict in Ukraine. The song concerns itself with deportation of the Crimean Tatars in the '40s by Stalin, and the chorus is sung in the Crimean Tatar language. It was accussed of being policitally loaded, which would have made it ineligible for the competition, but the EBU have confirmed it can take part as there is no 'political speech' in the lyrics. Instead, the song is inspired by stories that Jamala was told by her Grandmother, basically. What allegory is intentional is for the viewer to decide...
