Quick One: The Who

Quick One: The Who

This is a crazy record. It has some of the oddest, and most fun, Who songs in existence. Take "Boris the Spider" and "Happy Jack" for example. Yet there's something so endearing about them. I also love the cover of "Barbara Ann", which made Keith Moon the happiest man alive (seeing as he originally wanted to join a Beach Boys tribute band). Definitely not Who's Next, but a great little record none the less.

  • 1979 Quadrophenia was the ultimate British film based on The Who album by the same name. We learn about the Mod cultural wars!

London Calling is the third album by English punk rock band The Clash, released 14 December 1979, on CBS Records in the UK and in January 1980 on Epic Records in the United States. The album represented a change in The Clash's musical style, and featured elements of ska, pop, soul, rockabilly and reggae more prominently than in their previously released music.

  • So, I've decided on the seemingly impossible task. Yes, I've decided on my favorite Radiohead album. I mean, how can I deny it if it has, "high & dry," "fake plastic trees" and "black star."

  • This song was used in Lost in Translation which is one of my favorite movies.

  • It's one of my all time favorite albums from my youth. This is the album that is filled with songs that everyone can sing-a-long to. Oh and, who wouldn't want to support such arrogant assholes?

I'm not a huge fan of Def Leppard's music (although I do think they are really nice guys). However the one thing I have always known is especially Phil Collen and Joe Elliot's love of the 70's glam rock. This CD is all covers of songs that influenced the guys over the years. 70's British rock is well represented here. I like this CD start to finish (which is a rare thing for me. WIth that being said my fav tracks on this CD are: ~20th Century Boy ~Waterloo Sunset (one of the best songs ever written) ~Hanging on the Telephone ~Street Life (one of my favorite songs ever) ~Little Bit of Love ~Stay With Me (this is my favorite song of all time. No version will ever compare to the original by the Faces. However the boys do a really good job of it with Phil Collen on lead vocals. He does a great job). Being a fan of all of the music that influenced these guys myself I found something really interesting. Many of the songs they cover here are on the soundtrack for the amazing British tv show, Life on Mars.

If you were a fan of the Libertines, Pete Doherty is back again with the Babyshambles. The songs are lyrically beautiful, and extremely easy to listen to. Think the Kinks meets Pavement and the Clash.

I recall an interview with U2 where one of the band members, Larry I believe, mentioned that he was really interested in them. I'm so glad I checked them out. Their songs are hooky with a great edgy energy.

  • This is my favorite album from Nick Cave's punk endeavor. Combative and full of amazingly stripped down and passionate energy, these are really great punk songs written by a song master at the beginning of his career.

They play a lot of their hits, and seem pretty tight musically. Often I find that live albums aren't a good introduction to a new band, but in this case, the album is strong enough that it piqued my interest in the band.

  • The last album with Keith Moon shows him sitting on a cair saying "Not to be taken away" If only that were true. It's an uneven album, but "Had Enough" and "Who Are You" are still among the best that they've ever written.

After releasing Who's Next and Quardophenia, there's just no way to really keep that momentum going. Instead, the song writing turned more introspective, as can be seen in "How Many Friends", a great song about feeling lonely even when you have lots of people around you. There still was "Squeezebox", which was a crowd pleaser and strong single, and more in the traditional Who vein.

Endless Wire is the latest Who release, with just the two remaining members of te band, Pete Townshend and Roger Daltry. True, this is not the Who of old, but ther are still some good songs to be had. "Mike Post Theme" is catchy, even if we're talking about the guy who wrote the Hill Street Blues theme, and "Black Widow's Eyes" is well done too, with darker overtones. "It's Not Enough" and "We Got a Hit" are catchy as well and have really good guitar lines. The album is capped by "Tea & Theatre" is a sombre affair, which is fitting enough.

Get this CD and see why (and also wonder why they are not global superstars). After waiting for 7 years I finally got to see them recently at Fat City in San Francisco and all I can say is they did not disappoint. Ginger (singer) is the best songwriter on the planet. If you don't know the Wildhearts, boy are you missing out!

The last Who album with John Entwistle. It's definitely not my favorite Who album, as it has neither the charm of being absolutely strange like their earlier albums, or quite as aggressive as the albums from their prime, but there are still good moments to be had. Specifically, "Eminence Front" is a great song with a drive to it and some downright funky synths.

There have been countless "Best Of"s for the Who, but I think this one is worth the money. It's got a balanced track-list, but also contains two new songs: "Real Good Looking Boy" revolves around the theme of "Only Fools Rush In" and is a touching ballad, and "Old Red Wine" the weaker of the two, but a memorial to John Entwistle who had recently passed away.

"Going Mobile" predicts cell phones and the internet in a way that would be unimaginable to most people in the 70s. "Bargain" is also a great, with aggressive guitars and a kicking rhythm backbone. How can you not love Keith Moon's drumming? This is when the Who were at their creative peak, creating timeless rock classics.

This was the album that broke the Verve, both in terms of popularity and it marked the beginning of the end for a great group. "Bittersweet Symphony" was the inescapable big hit, but the whole album is great. Richard Ashcroft is probably at his best ever, and there's musicianship to match. A great, classic album.
