The Sex Pistols are one of my top 15 favorite bands ever. They were the band that got me into punk when I was 8 years old. I present to you two different covers of one of their quintessential songs “Anarchy In The U.K.” I find it fitting to do a cover comparison of this song considering what is going on in the U.K. at the moment. Who do you think did it best?
Bands that start with the letter E aren’t easy to think of. Not to mention, due the qualify to be included in a list of the best bands. Here is my list of the top bands with the letter E. As always add to the list of who you think should be included.
Echo And The Bunnymen
Explosions In The Sky
I’ve mentioned before that there are certain bands that were really good but didn’t get the due and push they needed. Hotwire is one of those bands for sure. On their Japanese release of their debut album The Routine, they included a cover of The Rolling Stones “Let’s Spend The Night Together.” While this isn’t the best cover, it’s a fun version that is very fitting as a good fun summer time song.
For years, Dave Navarro has been one of my favorite guitarists. He’s got such a unique tone and sound that when he plays, you know it’s him. Here are a few select songs he has guested on over the years.
Nine Inch Nails- Burning Bright:
Marilyn Manson- I Don’t Like The Drugs (But The Drugs Like Me):
Choirs have a new single out called “Insight.” This song has a very early Saosin/Circa Survive vibe going on. It’s really quite good! The song was mixed by Scott Evans of Kowloon Walled City, so you know it sounds extra good!!! Enjoy it!!!
A while back I made the band Moving Structures the band of the week. During that time they were in the midst of working on their debut full length. Well it’s now out and it is tremendous. When you are an instrumental band, the ability to connect with listeners and invoke feeling without vocals and lyrics is not easy, but Moving Structures are one of the few bands I’ve heard to be able to do just that and then some. There is something truly remarkable about the melodies and tones that they use to get you to feel something more than usual. The power of not having vocals makes you think and delve deeper into your senses. The twelve songs on Moving Structures’s debut Awake, take you on a journey that allows the listener to grasp their intentions all the while making it something that transcends the genre. With bits of prog, ambience, and rock, Moving Structures have released an album that can become a new blueprint for instrumental bands to learn and expand upon.
