As I replied to Hector have a listen to the clips I posted up

You may enjoy Be-Bop Deluxe as their debut album Axe victim sounded very Bowie-ish

That's me Hector a right old barsteward :lol:

There are so many bands from the past that folk miss as they rave about the more popular rock bands, my first two favourites from BJH & BBD are essential Hector but by all means scan their back-catalogue if you have time !

Talking about modern music, two bands from the noughties up next :)

I think some other rock bands sound more dated, all down to ones ears I suppose !
Good to see 'Everyone Is Everybody Else' is your favourite BJH album mate even though it sold less than their later works. BJH aficionado's recognise this one as their best :tup:

BBD

Sunburst Finish
Axe Victim
Futurama

Saw them twice in the Seventies, at the Duchess and the Union. Nelson was a very underrated guitarist. Sunburst Finish their best album for me, just in front of Axe Victim.

I only have one BJH album "....and other short stories". Saw them live in Manchester around 2000, and they were dreadful.

Today's band from last weeks playlist

Alt-J

Alt-J are fronted by Joe Newman who formed the band with friends whilst all were studying at Leeds University in 2007. Since 2012 Alt-J have recorded three studio & one live album.

Favourite three in this order

An Awesome Wave
Relaxer
This Is All Yours

Only acquired their 2nd album recently so 'This Is All Yours' may move up the order after a few more plays. Three excellent albums

Chart Facts

Their albums have not only been acclaimed UK/USA but all over the world. All three albums have reached the Top 13 with their 2nd album making the No.1 spot

Their singles have done well in America, not one of their eight singles have made the Top 50

I've headed back to 70's to revisit Mothers Finest, wonderful Funk/Rock Fusion band and Gary Moore is a really under rated guitarist..I remember having a list of favourite guitarists in the late 70's that went something like

Gary Richrath (Legendary lead from REO Speedwagon when they were good)
Gary Moore (the Atlanta Georgia one, AKA "Mo Moses"
Waddy Wachtel (long time cohort of Linda R)
Bob Wilson/Dave Carroll (Steve Gibbons duel leads)
WG "Snuffy" Waldon
Eddie Golga
Frank Zappa
Mike Paxman
Donald Roeser


and someone else I can't recall, and don't remember the order but Frank was probably top

No Ritchie B ???

Didn't Jan Akkerman from Focus used to get nods as being one of the best guitarists around in the 70's, albeit more early/mid 70's ?

Was going to put an Alt J song in the polls but was too difficult to decide which one.

There were a lot of highly thought of guitarists in the 70's..being a bit precious my list was different to everyone elses. Probably still stand by most of it tbf..

I always prefer American over British and never a fan of Sabbath/Purple or Rainbow. I own nothing by these bands at all.

I have around 20 albums of pure Zappa guitar work, he remains the greatest.

I preferred the underrated less recognised British guitarists such as Andy Powell, Ted Turner, Bill Nelson, John Lees, Mick Taylor, etc

Still on last weeks playlist.... one of the most underrated singer-songwriters

Al Stewart

Stewart shared a flat with Paul Simon during the 60's. Al bought his first guitar off Police guitarist Andy Summers

Favourite albums

Past Present & Future - (without any shadow of doubt)
Orange
Time Passages
Love Chronicles
Year Of The Cat

Favourite songs

unusual to pick two songs our from an artist as there are generally far too many

'Road to Moscow' & 'Nostradamas' both off his wonderful 'Past Present & Future' album
