AUSTRALIAN CRAWL - WHITE LIMBO

Hello and welcome back.. Not necessarily a electronic band but in this track, a heavy use of electronic drums?, well it sounds like it.

From the 1983 'Semantics' album, White Limbo has be one of my fav songs from Aust Crawl along with the track 'Reckless' also from this album.

White Limbo has an amazing sound acoustics when played on a good set of headphones or speakers. Sadly White Limbo was not released as a single..  Check it out (Oh, Those Drums) :)

ATOMIC BLONDE SOUNDTRACK

Hello and welcome back... A few posts back, i mentioned a new movie out called Atomic Blonde.

Its a movie based in Germany 1989.

I managed to go see Atomic Blonde at the movies and can say, its brilliant movie... Gritty, hard edged and a wicked soundtrack to boot.

The best track... That's a difficult one -
New Order - Blue Monday is excellent but i would have to say Re-Flex - Politics of Dancing, this song is played at a nightclub and at the start of a sex scene.
That bassline is to die for.

J. GEILS BAND - COME BACK

Hello and welcome back... Love this, amazing sound.

From the 'Love Stinks' album from 1980 came this wicked track, heavy on the synths and those guitars... WOW

Its pretty good, considering in 1980, Synths were not that predominant in main stream music, where rock and punk still lived...

A sign of things to come? Yes it was.

Play LOUD :)

J.GEILS BAND - COME BACK  (1980)


'Come Back' made it to #24 in the Canadian music charts. #32 U.S, #34 Australia.
 
Sadly in April 2017, John J. Geils (lead Guitars), passed away, he was 71 years young.  RIP
