Spacepig Pig | 1445 comments And so moving on to a band who I had (thankfully) forgotten ever existed, tech's latest faves, American hip hoppers, The Beastie Boys.

It appears they have about 8 albums to choose from, no idea about collaborations etc but no doubt tech will keep us right.

Noms as ever close at 10pm on Sunday, don't forget your youtube link.

Enjoy the weekend when it arrives (already here for me).

Tech XXIII  | 6440 comments 9 sharp tunes, no doubt, and thanks to those who submitted them, but only 9 sharp tunes is a mite underwhelming - ok, i know the beasties aren't to everyone's taste, people got lives, people forget, etc etc, but i've participated in virtually every round no matter how torturous and distasteful i've found some (most) of them, in an attempt to support both the nominator and the game. so, perhaps in a huffy pique, i've decided i'm only going to participate on those i'm interested in, and the beasties will certainly be my last artist nomination. rant over.

message 14: by Val (new)

Val H. | 13913 comments Tech - nine isn't bad these days unfortunately. My nom of k.d. lang got seven and Spacepig's Alice Coltrane got six. I think people look at the nom and think "I don't know/don't like this artist therefore I won't participate." It's just the way things are. The various threads have been fairly sparse of late. Christmas? Work commitments? Who knows? I've had my rants in the past as have other posters. I'm going to hang in there and keep plugging away. Lord knows, my tastes are as far from centre as yours are but I ain't throwing the towel in yet. I hope some noms come up that do float your boat. You'd be much missed.

Yeh, sorry tech, I would've taken part in this one, don't mind a bit of Beastie Boys.

theDuke | 5607 comments I think for today's smaller group of participants, to get 8 or 9 noms is par for the course these days....so i wouldn't be upset by that Tech. Seems to be only the really famous and popular bands (although granted BB are hardly a 'little' known band), that tends to reach double figures now. I think it's fair amount and if Helen had got her nom in, then 10 is a more than respectable number of noms, to be had from a significantly reduced in numbers, but still ever the discerning audio-ists! :)

So i hope you'll collect back all those toys you've chucked out the pram...pretty please!

Tech, I don't know if you have seen this? It's the Beastie Boys walking onto the David Letterman show whilst rapping 'Check It Out' from the excellent album 'To The 5 Boroughs'. Pretty cool!

suzysunshine7 | 14592 comments Awww, I really am sorry, tech - I've just not been in any kind of mood to want to listen to any Music at all for several weeks now. However it's definitely is more than high time that I try to snap myself out of feeling like this and so I'll be back to vote on this one tomorrow ... x x x

suzysunshine7 | 14592 comments Ohhh, the wonderful memory of sitting with a few friends on top deck of the 157 Bus on the way into Manchester - all singing/yelling along to 'No Sleep Till Brooklyn' until the Bus Driver pulled over and threatened to throw us all off! - LOL!!! ;o>

message 30: by Spacepig (new)

Spacepig Pig | 1445 comments So, Bell Witch went on a lot later than I expected last night, and was just soooooo intense - incredible stuff but it did mean that not also did I forget all about this, I also forgot to put the bins out to be emptied when I got back home :-(

We do have a clear winner again, out in front, collecting the gold, Bras Neck for the first time in a while, with No Sleep Till Brooklyn.De

Winning the slug out for second place, Tech's nom, Shake Your Rump. And picking up the bronze gong, Val, with Rhymin & Stealin'.

Definitely not one for me but despite Tech's protestations, I thought it went down reasonably well.


message 31: by suzysunshine7 (new)

suzysunshine7 | 14592 comments YAYYY!!! - Congratulations Mr B!!! ... x ;o>

And very well-nominated tech and Val ... x x x

I really did need more Points for this one as it meant that unfortunately I couldn't vote for several other Tracks including the rather lovely "I Don't Know"

David Endersby (davidendersby) | 391 comments Sorry for missing the vote, I've just been so busy. Think I'll be bowing out of this until the new year

Here's wishing you and yours a very happy and a healthy Christmas in the meantime - and we shall all look forward to hopefully seeing you back on these Threads again sometime in the New Year ... x x x
