A LIFETIME OF MUSIC 1973-2011 (Part 17)

1989. What a fucked up year that was. A bunch of metal (mostly glam/hair) acts headed to Moscow to play a giant concert. It was very dull. So much else was going on. The hair metal bands were in the process of being usurped by the super sleazy Guns N Roses, and Guns N Roses had yet to bloat into everything they originally hated. Primus was making everything weird. REM was growing into the biggest damn band in America after years of low-level obscurity.


GUNS N ROSES - Patience










PRIMUS - To Defy The Laws Of Tradition









REM - These Days

Is -FUPPETS- Dead?

Well? Maybe. Maybe it is moribund. Maybe it has exhausted itself. MAYBE.

But what is to come? What is next? In the midst of life we are in death etc.

There may be a re-boot. There may be a continuation, or a part II, or some sort of -FUPPETS- prequel... Who knows? If Hollywood can do it so can -FUPPETS-.

For real. -FUPPETS- will be back, better than ever, very soon. It will be an expanded format, with specific sections relating to Music, Art, Science, etc., making it easier to browse and enjoy the -FUPPETS- that so many dozens love.

A LIFETIME OF MUSIC 1973-2011 (Part 16)

1988. By this time the idea of "college rock" had morphed into "post-modern rock" then into "alternative rock" and so on and so forth as whatever fad catch-all name for non-mainstream music came into vogue. All sorts of crazy music was erupting into people's ears. Operation Ivy was already doing it's hardcore ska-punk thing in the Bay Area. The Pixies were making an eerie music, skeletal yet anthemic. Fugazi had begun to morph hardcore punk. The Red Hot Chili Peppers funked out with their cocks out. (check the dick socks in the clip) Dinosaur Jr brought the aural bliss of their "ear-bleeding country." Rock music history should view 1988 as 19-eightygreat.


Operation Ivy - Knowledge








The Pixies - Where Is My Mind?


Fugazi - Waiting Room








The Red Hot Chili Peppers - Fire







Dinosaur Jr - Kracked

-FUPPETS- MUSIC: SYG Compilation A & B

There is a place, long thought to be mythical, where the various rejects and anomalies that are drawn to -FUPPETS- House Band SONIC YOUTH gather and conjoin their minds in mutual antagonism and love. That place is the Sonic Youth Gossip Forums. This fertile Meta-mind has in the past brought us such joys as jennthebenn's NO SETLIST: Pieces of a Sonic Life , The Top 20 Albums of the 2000's , and the infamous Top 20 Greatest Albums Ever . Now comes it's greatest experiment yet!











(a compilation of tracks from the world of SYG)






Check out the sonic output of the most fertile meta-hive-mind on the interwebs! SONIC LIFE!

A LIFETIME OF MUSIC 1973-2011 (Part 15)

1987. It was the perfect time for The Cure to come fix everything damnit. The Pet Shop Boys were pushing their wry brand of anti-rock dance music. -FUPPETS- House Band Sonic Youth were about to release their masterpiece, DAYDREAM NATION. While the goth guys tried to ape Robert Smith, the goth girls tried their hardest to mimic Siouxsie Sioux. Meanwhile, on the west coast of the USA, a fermenting pot of insanity and rock called Jane's Addiction were recording their first LP, a live album.


THE CURE - Hot, Hot, Hot




THE PET SHOP BOYS - It's A Sin




SONIC YOUTH - Silver Rocket






SIOUXSIE & THE BANSHEES - Candyman






JANE'S ADDICTION - Trip Away
