    I get this trying to watch film noir with my sister, all she notices is the wooden acting and slick back hair. Whereas, for me that's part of the appeal, same as with old time music. George Gershwin or whatever it might be, synths from the 70s. That it transports me back.

    With hip hop or hardcore. I listened to it for so long that the 1994 jump in production doesn't thrill me like it used too, hence my knowhow becoming gappy around those years.

    how's that third?

    Very good, exactly what i was getting at.

    But also on Bach's lovebombing for corpse. lovebomb techniques are one of the main weapons in the gaslighters arsenal. That's my aversion to it. at least a dominatrix will give it to you eventually.

    You know I'm on the moral high ground here. I don't single you out. I'll do it to Barty when necessary. Be mean. Be abusive even but be coherent

    oh, for god's sake Luke, what was the fucking point of that man.

    We get it, corpse has an aversion to music heavily based on dissonance (some dubstep excluded) so how do we work with that rather than piling on me? Whereas even with 90s hip hop i prefer the beats to have a bit of a clashing vibe to them. of course i like smoother soul music as much as the next man but i like it in opposition to the rough and rugged.

    Sorry corpse. not feeling good about constantly taking a pot shot at your value set. I'm sure you are frustrated with my value set as well.

    I just get annoyed how it's common in the music press to have all these (well) frankly racist associations about jazz but classical music gets a free pass because it's white - now there's undoubtedly terrible jazz but noone will ever say bach is terrible, ever ever ever. I used to chat to a girl online who went to like, fucking cambridge and that (no not flirting she had a west london accent) and she had mates who were really really into classical and a few of them were like so earnestly (it's scary) all music returns to Bach. Really? All music around the world, even in the balkans? That's massively fucking presumptuous for one, and just great man of history.

    As the son of a musician, and someone who briefly tried to study at music school I can confirm that what Third says about the Bach stuff is very real.

    This is admittedly one of my early bugbears on bullying Corpse, but a lot of people who accept something is very good and established as quality because enough people have proven and demonstrated it. Here's a personal anecdote:

    I don't like A Love Supreme. It's a fine album but I don't like it all that much. Give me Interstellar Space or Ascension (which I heard first from Coltrane) any day instead. Now that's a personal choice by circumstance which is uncommon, I recognize that. But enough people have made A Love Supreme the canonical Value Over All The Coltrane and a good majority of Jazz. Devotees of this album get into a bizarre phenomenon of reverence and exhibit "Trane Face". They sit down, hands folded and stare forward in a severity and seriousness, they observe as a ritual. This is a man who is communicating from nirvana. This is not a man in their minds, as Miles Davis once remembered, who "picked his boogers on stage instead of playing sometimes". It becomes something ghastly that I'm sure Coltrane would've balked at in that he became Powerful and a symbolic moment, weaponized for the purposes of intellect.

    Likewise, Bach has similar totemic value for people as 'intellectual' music which we know to be bunk and yet still frequently becomes a transmission of concepts and perceptions not from the time, but Mounted Onto It.

    it's just hierarchical shit ain't it. you set yourself a bar that has less to do with the merit of the music but that tries to retrofit all musical developments of the future to the 18th century. So Bach becomes more complicated than rap (that's the one they always hate don't they) ignoring that there is a 250 year and more passage of time. Bach becomes divorced from his aristocratic context and made into timeless music that *expressed *everyone's* needs in the 18th C. which is ofc bollocks...
