Not much time to post today, been sorting out all my taxation documentation ready for the accountant to do my tax return.

For a personal insight into my somewhat drab life, this is a list of the music (artist – album) I’ve been listening to today whilst doing boring tax stuff.

  • Ladytron – Velocifero
  • The Cure – 4:13 Dream
  • Serj Tankian – Elect the Dead
  • Augie March – Watch Me Disappear
  • Kraftwerk – Minimum-Maximum (live)
  • Jethro Tull – Live at Montreux
  • Rage Against The Machine – The Battle of Los Angeles

Favourite tunes (artist – song):

  • Ladytron – Ghosts
  • Serj Tankian – Empty Walls
  • Kraftwerk – Autobahn

When trying to think of a pithy title for this post, I was reminded of the old Herman’s Hermits song “No Milk Today“. With the opening lyrics:

No milk today, my love has gone away. The bottle stands forlorn, a symbol of the dawn.

clever, huh?

    Never ‘eard of Ladytron or the other bloke (sounds Armenian) but bought Autobahn when it came out. Classic.

    Where you around – for the Merseysound?

    Fahren fahren fahren auf der Autobahn…(I speak German fluently but the lyrics don’t seem to say much).

  2. Clever indeed!

    I am not familiar with all of your music favorites. I know and like some of the same ones! Especially The Cure, Jethro Tull and Rage Against the Machine! Those are good ones!!
    I understand about you not wanting to share. I didn’t mean the post to be such a downer. I hope you’ll check out my new one, I’d love to know what you drive, or if you drive!

    @novparl
    Ladytron are an electronic pop band formed by two DJs from Liverpool (UK) with singers from Glasgow (Scotland) and Sofia (Bulgaria).

    Serj is the lead singer of System Of A Down (SOAD, an Armenian-American rock-metal band, (so you guessed right) this is his solo project; but very similar to SOAD.

    I was around for the Mersey sound I was actually living in the Mersey area at the time (though I was very young)

    I also bought Autobahn when it first came out, I bought it on cassette tape. Kraftwerk had a large influence on the music industry, major pioneers of electronic music and influenced the early rap scene.

    @Traceytreasure, no sweat, I’m happy to share just not so openly on mine or someone else’s blog. I can do the car thing though.

    Have read about SoaD on Wikip about 6 months ago. Possibly the worst title for a group. Paranoid & poor English.

    Very interesting that Kraftwerk are touring Oz. Never sure which of the old groups are still going. The fact they’re doing only major cities suggests they charge top $.

    Rolf Harris still going in Pomland!

  5. ozatheist says:

    Yeah I was thinking of seeing Kraftwerk, but at $125/ticket I’m not so sure.

    Rolf will never die, long live the Rolf.

    Cripes! £55! About the same as top Pom venues, really.

    Rolf’ll never die? They thought that about Rod Hull & Emu.
