Dismayed

If you have a son young enough to appreciate the noise made at Creamfields and you have leopard print wellies, you are far too young to remember real music! :lol:

The wellies were cheap and were bought as a necessity rather than a fashion statement :wink::lol: I tend not to wear them with skimpy shorts and bikini tops as that's a bit odd for anyone just over the age of 21 like me 8)

 

If there was a ever a Cremfields for 'real' music though I'd be first in the queue for a ticket... maybe one day eh :D

 

Rock and Roll? Skiffle? Blues? Jazz? :?:wink:

 

As for the school run from the earlier post, they have school buses for the rustics.

 

PS. IF you can't complain about what goes on in your back yard, WHAT can you complain about? :roll:

Eh :? Presume your reply was for Adam or have I had my music too loud and missed something 8)

 

Either way what on earth is 'Skiffle' :oops: As for Jazz the last two letters give it away Zzzzzzzz :wink:

Whatever the music, I would not go if the performance was outdoors. Music is for the concert hall.

"Real" music is standing the test of time well with intelligent audiences. It never WAS commercially successful because the masses are not musically educated. They have neither the hearts nor the minds to appreciate anything other than the juvenile. Which is why people like the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Status Quo, etc, etc, etc, have been commercially successful but from a musical standpoint are nondescript. 8)

Dismayed.

You again betray your youth by asking what Skiffle is (or was!). It was, of course, the forerunner of rock 'n' roll. It was pretty amateurish, usually played in coffee bars and pubs for "beer money" and its instruments were, generally, guitars, washboard, teachest bass and vocals. Some professionals took it up, notably Lonnie Donnegan (You must have heard My Old Man's a Dustman or Does Your Chewing Gum loose its flavour on the bedpost overnight? Musically it was rubbish but at least it had a basic, rustic charm and honesty about it. When the rockers took over, big money came into play and it led to a steep decline in popular music which has continued (and still continues) today, thanks to the uneducated masses, some of who populate the music section of this forum.

I hope this fills in a gap in your knowledge :D

 

As for my musical taste, I like most good music. That which I dislike usually doesn't merit the description "music"

So what's your most played CD Adam - just want to know what REAL music is so I can try and catch up on things I have missed over the years.

It wasn't the Screamfields 'music' which kept us awake until 4 a.m on the Sunday morning - it was the thudding vibration from DJs multiple speakers in 14 big top style marquees which were supposed to have some sort of sound proofing. But could we expect anything else when our man from Warrington BC told the licence application hearing that 2007 sound levels were below limits and told Cream they could have louder sound this year if they wanted - then again the organising firm is called LOUD SOUND :x

Can't say as I know what my most played CD is - don't count the playings! Probably all my most played music is on LP anyway, because I have had them longer and still play them.

But if you have to ask what REAL music is then there isn't much point in me or anyone else trying to tell you!

As to the vibrations from the DJ's speakers - isn't that part of the "music" at Creamfields?

However, I do sympathise with you. I think in your position, I would be moving home or buying a shotgun! :evil:

I betray my youth again???...... It's nice to know that you think I am in the young age bracket :D .....are you as old as you sound :shock:

 

Never heard of Skiffle but know the two tunes you mention well... although I don't have a copy of either on my LP/TAPE/CD/Ipod collection.

 

I have you down as more of a classical music lover and someone who possibly dislikes rock, pop or anything over 'easy listening' level :P

 

Wait until Gary , TMM and the others read your comments re

 

the uneducated masses, some of who populate the music section of this forum...
now you're in trouble :lol::wink:

Been in trouble before! Will be in trouble again. Don't care!

 

But you have part of your collection on an iPod? I didn't realise you were THAT young.

 

You are not too far wrong with your description of my musical tastes, although I do like a few pop records. It's just that I like them despite myself - I know they are rubbish really!

 

By the way, what is today described as "Easy listening" was the pop of its day. Don't know what they'll call today's pop in 50 years, but I wouldn't expect it to be "easy listening." I would suggest a short, snappier title... perhaps "Junk"!

 

The two Lonnie Donnegan records I mentioned were prime examples of commercialised skiffle. I preferred the coffee bar stuff myself. It was more honest

Tut Tut.... never heard of a rebelious clasical music lover though :P

I like you :D I'm feeling more youthfull everday :D Even us oldies can appreciate the wonderful world of the very compact iPod (no rooting around for favourite tapes, LP's, CD's and no cupboards full to the brim.)

As for the sound quality through an equally compact good speaker docking station WOW...

What you/we class as 'junk' is probably another persons 'treasure'.... which is why they get Creamfields :wink:

Bet you can't sing along to as many Slim Whitman songs as I can :lol:
