Today, i watch the documentary Befor Music Dies, or B4MD.
it was a really great doc.

how they talked about what the music biz does today, and the radio biz. and how they make lame "pop" artist albums.

i loved the blues player that played the guitar inverted. or it looked like that to me


anyone watch this documentary?

music is more active today then any point in history, just because what you like isn't popular doesn't mean it isn't out there. And even if it isn't, the old stuff is always waiting there to be listened too. We have more access to all types of music old and new, popular or not. Just go search man...

music today is great. the great stuff just isn't as popular anymore, but that doesnt mean that there isn't some really good music out there today. cuz there is. mars volta, the shins, tegan and sara, conor oberst....i could go on and on.

It almost seems like there is *more* great stuff nowadays... that it's harder to point your finger at several "era-defining" bands like it was in the 70's and 80's and whatnot, because there are way more great bands nowadays that will define this generation's music.

Well, you actually should listen to Sinatra. >__>

And I'm sure there were guys in the 50s that said "music today sucks lissen to Jolson ololololol."

You get my point. <__<

This.

I go to uni in a town with a kick-ass music scene.

There's all kinds of folk/accoustic/jazzy stuff which is all awesome, and there's also a sick metal scene.

I went to a small show a couple nights ago (and I mean small, there was one drunk guy trying to get a mosh going all night, and he got at most 5 or 6 people involved), but the bands were great. One of them, who's only been together since june of this year, and who is currently recording a full length that I believe they said would be ready by october, I can best describe as an aggressive hybrid of Dream Theater, Opeth and Pink Floyd. Most of the bands were more of the -core/screaming variety, which I don't normally like as much, but **** are the bands in the area good.

Just because it's hard to find doesn't mean it's not there.

Eh, the 90s-00s have been the best generation of music yet imo. The best artists may not be the biggest bands, but there are WAY more good bands now than there were 30 years ago.
Board:
Pitchblack - Fulltone Octafuzz - Hardwire OD - Blakemore Effects Deus Ex Machina - MXR Micro Chorus - Diamond Memory Lane Jr - EHX SMMH - Neunaber Wet

No matter how hard you try, it will never die. The music will live on.

So, you're saying either Hendrix did jam with Eric Clapton, and was white, or the bluesman you're talking about did jam with Eric Clapton, and was white.

I'll point this out for you:


1. )Hendrix was not white.

2.)Bluesmen are not white.

You're welcome

I've seen this documentary.

It's music that's on the radio that's ruining music.

Instead of whining, which will get you nowhere, just go and become a popstar, then you can sit and complain.

It's funny because thousands upon thousands, no I'd say millions, of musicians today dedicate their lives to something we're all passionate about on this forum (music) and spend years learning how to master their art and writing amazing songs, and then said millions of musicians are dismissed by millions of self-pitying wankers who wish they were born in the sixties. Doesn't it suck?

And in forty years those who do like the music of today will be complaining about the music of the future saying that it was better back in the 2000s. It's a vicious cycle but people are too stupid to see the big picture.

XAVIEDIT: Pop musicians (well, most of them) included. Do you have any idea how hard it is to write a catchy song?

Bollocks is it. Nothing is ruining music. It can be argued that some things are ruining the music industry's current model, but the music itself is not.

I'm generalizing here. I like some people who play music nowdays but musics gone down the pan for the mainstream stuff.


Yh i suppose this brings the whole "music is subjective" thing back again. I like alot of music o nthe radio, tbh the music during that day, ie 4am-9pm is crap, but electronic music on at night is awesome, and the odd time it gets a little play in prime time
#39
There's at least one band playing today that you like. Ergo music is alive.

^ Well it's good to drive to at least some of the time. I'd love to hear some more variety of music though for electronic stuff. I wanna hear some wumpscut on the radio.
