Ex-MEGADETH Bassist DAVID ELLEFSON: 'We Weren't Really Threatened By Grunge'
Former MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson has weighed in on the never-ending debate about how the rise of grunge in the early 1990s forced most hard rock bands off the radio and MTV, with album and tour sales plummeting. Asked in a new interview with Greg Prato of Ultimate Guitar how he and his then-ba...

Hallo! Would you like to hear what White Town sounded like 34 years ago, when we a three-piece indie guitar band?

You would?

Well, today's your lucky day!

Car Park Love Songs gathers the songs that ended up on the early Parasol singles and some other totally un-released rarities.

It's a mix of jangly, twee, shoegaze, grungy and everything else we were listening to back then.

Courtney Love has just launched a new eight-part series about women in music on BBC Radio 6 Music and finished her memoir, "The Girl With the Most Cake." She also recently marked the 30th anniversary of both the death of her husband Kurt Cobain and the release of Hole's seminal album, "Live Through This." The Evening Standard's Dylan Jones talked to her about Taylor Swift ("not important"), Madonna ("I don't like her and she doesn't like me") and whether she's an English lady now.

This is my Sharkey 🙃

You can call me Dane.

I started out on the fediverse arooooound...I wanna say 2017/18 mebbe? My big start in social media was MySpace. Before that, I had a LiveJournal (which I miss mightily with all my heart). My very first computer was a Gateway PC, back when they shipped them to you in those awesome cow spot pattern boxes. I am trying to de-google my life.

I'm and suffer from . I'm currently unmedicated. I can be damned moody at times, so there's your warning.

Religiously/spiritually speaking, I'm complicated. That will be a long post, when I get around to writing it. My general rule is: I have my thing. It's not everybody's thing, and that's cool. Not everybody's thing is my thing, and that's cool. Just don't be a wanker towards those whose thing ain't your thing. OM 🕉

I'm 57 years old and have come to the conclusion that we never truly appreciate the decades we grew up in until we hit middle age.

I'm single and childless, hence my user tag: TheLastOfHisName.

And now, a hefty list of hashtags....

Nazi punks fuckoff.

I was listening to my own music last night, which is not unusual, I listen to my own music quite a bit. I like it. But as I listened to it last night, I began to view it for the first time as a body of work. I’m not sure what it was before that moment, but as I played through the almost-hour long collection of my original songs, I was struck with the feeling that this is… a thing, a representation of something, I’m not sure what. I’m usually good with words, but I’m finding it difficult to describe the shift I felt. I know I must continue to add to this body of work, and that the work must stay true to itself. Music for the sake of music, and tunes that I personally enjoy listening to over and over again. I’m not sure if it was because I’d just binged on Ween, or maybe had too much sugar, but it was like an epiphany, and The Dgar Project has taken a new seat in my own consciousness. I am a songwriter, and this year, I’m writing songs.

Here’s the link if you’d like to open up the #Dgar for yourself and see what’s inside.

Kurt Cobain died 30 years ago today. The Independent's Mark Beaumont looks back at Nirvana's live performances, from their first Seattle shows in 1988 to the final gig on March 1, 1994. "Many shows in Nirvana’s brief seven-year existence were true rock’n’roll riots: scenes of wild, cathartic release – not only for the punk and rock fans enthralled by Cobain’s pain-wracked strain of melodic grunge but also the band themselves, who attacked every set as if fighting their way out of a tumble dryer," he writes. Did you ever see Nirvana live? Share your memories in the comments.

30 years without the legendary Nirvana singer and guitarist Kurt Cobain. He tragically left us back in April 5, 1994 at the age of 27.

Vor 30 Jahren nimmt sich Kurt Cobain das Leben. Damit endet auch die Ära einer der erfolgreichsten Bands aller Zeiten. Doch Nirvana inspiriert und prägt Musikschaffende immer noch.

🎸 Punk von indonesischen Arbeitsmigranten: Aufstand gegen Ausbeutung ✊!5996177/

taz: "Die Bandmitglieder von Southern Riot sind indonesische Wanderarbeiter. In kämpfen sie für bessere A#rbeitsbedingungen – das geht gut mit .
(...) Texte und Musik erinnern an die deutsche Punkband mit ihren autonomen Bewegungshymnen Anfang der 1980er. (...)

Die meisten Mitglieder von Southern Riot haben bereits in Indonesien in Rock-, Metal- oder -Bands gespielt. Zu ihren Lieblingsbands gehören die Punk-Veteranen Superman is dead, Marjinal und Bunga Hitam, die Hardrock-Band Boomerang und die -Band , alle aus , sowie die , und Bob Marley.

Die Band ist für sie zweite Familie und bietet ihnen ein Zuhause in Taiwan. Einer von ihnen betont, die Band und der Punk halte ihn über Wasser, sodass er den Stress auf der Arbeit ertragen könne.

Keine Botschaft mit Metal

Ein anderer beschreibt, dass der Druck durch Chef, Vorarbeiter und Arbeitsvermittler Gefühle erzeuge, die dann in die Musik der Band einflössen. Punkmusik und -texte drückten diese Emotionen gut aus. Früher habe er kritische Texte für Reggae-Musik geschrieben, aber daraus seien nie richtige Songs geworden. Metal sei auch ein Genre, mit dem Emotionen ausgedrückt werden könnten, fügt er hinzu. Botschaften könnten mit Metal jedoch nicht vermittelt werden. Die Texte würden gegrölt und seien so nur schwer zu verstehen. (...)

Eines der Bandmitglieder sagt, Punk bedeute für ihn, über Unterdrückung zu sprechen. Wenn die Texte dieses Thema nicht berühren, „fehlt ihnen der Sinn“. Ein anderes Bandmitglied betont, dass Punk für Widerstand und soziale Bewegung steht, nicht bloß für laute Musik und Zerstörung. Er sagt, die Musik von Southern Riot solle ihre Sozialkritik und die Beschwerden der Wan­der­ar­bei­te­r:in­nen in Taiwan rüberbringen.

Das klingt dann zum Beispiel so wie in dem Liebeslied der indonesischen Wan­der­ar­bei­te­r:in­nen (Lagu cinta dari BMI):

*Hey, ist Euch klar, dass wir uns hier missachtet fühlen?

Ist es nicht Eure Aufgabe, uns zu helfen und für unsere Rechte einzutreten?

Wir wurden unserer Rechte beraubt, zum Schweigen gebracht durch Einschüchterung.

Und wir stehen auf gegen dieses System der Sklaverei.

Es ist doch kein Wunder, dass wir wütend sind. Also, kommt, Freunde, lasst uns schreien:

Arbeitsvermittlungen – Was für ein Chaos

Arbeitsvermittlungen – Zu nichts zu gebrauchen

Arbeitsvermittlungen – Verpisst Euch

Arbeitsvermittlungen – Verdammte Bestien.* "
