OK, everybody knows my views on the 60 year barrage of pop music - a
bunch of over amped musical illiterates (for the most part). I have
often wondered what would happen if the music suddenly changed and you
actually needed to study music in order to participate. Well, you
need look no further that the 1920's revival bands touring the bars
around the country. Basically, they consist of the exact same pile of
amps and mikes as before, but they throw in a few horn players and
sing classic jazz sounding tunes that they usually write themselves.
Essentially, they are making fun of the music. The horn players may as
well be playing carboard cutouts of horns for all they contribute -
it's not like any of them can make the changes. Not all these groups
are bad, however, just search for the Loose Marbles (they've got a
good trumpet and piano), to hear it done right. Also, search "spotted
cat new orleans" to hear how it's done. It's good to see some nerdy
guys get the attention instead of the amped up posers.
There's a lot one can do with a stack of Marshals and a
Statocaster.......... was Hendrix a poser?
No, but every Strat slinger (rock and blues) after him with the pickup
switch stuck in the out-of-phase 2 & 4 positions was.
That's such a broad snipping negative statement..... I think you are
pissed you never played in a rock band. And look at Luteman now he's
playing jazz ( rock and roll with the notes all wrong)......
