..... sollte Jonne Aaron Liimatainen haben. Ich bin mir sicher, dass die letzte Woche auf den Markt gekommene 3. Scheibe von NEGATIVE mit dem Titel "Anorectic" ein voller Erfolg werden wird und den anderen 2 Alben "War Of Love" und "Sweet & Deceitful" in nichts nachstehen wird. Lies mehr...Collapse )

Hi! :) My name is Kayla, and I, like all of you I'm sure, eat-sleep-breathe music. My iPod is always with me, headphones around my neck; half of my paychecks go to independent record stores' used music collections on a whim.

Worst three weeks of my life: when my iPod was sent in for repair because I wore out the click wheel and it just didn't work anymore (ha!). I'll tell you what, it's bad news bears when the hold switch functions as the Forward button.

Anyway, so, my music taste! I'd say I'm fairly modern, into more of the current "indie" music - I'm a sucker for good indie-pop or twee, or any well-done crazy-thrashy-girl-rock (ie: the Yeah Yeah Yeah's circa Fever To Tell, or You Say Party! We Say Die!). I also adore 80's music; mostly synth-pop, ambient/dream-pop/shoegaze-y stuff.

A really quick list of bands/musicians I'm really into:

My Favorite, the Smiths/Morrissey, the Cure, Joy Division, New Order, Cocteau Twins, Trembling Blue Stars/The Field Mice/Northern Picture Library, Mandalay, Carissa's Wierd, Depeche Mode, Regina Spektor, Jeff Buckley, Neko Case, Rose Melberg/Go Sailor/The Softies, Slowdive, Cursive/The Good Life, The Boy Least Likely To, Asobi Seksu, Tilly and the Wall, Voxtrot, Immaculate Machine, Azure Ray, Elliott Smith, Electronic, Stars, Neutral Milk Hotel, the Evening Episode, the Velvet Teen, the Jesus and Mary Chain, the Radio Dept., the Autumns, Of Montreal, Mates of State, Cinerama, Boards of Canada...

The list most certainly goes on and on and on.

I really look forward to contributing however I can in this community!

I'm Ninja Misa, I'm 26 years of age and music has always been a very important part of my life. Music can instantly lift you up or bring you down. Music is everywhere and there is nothing that music can't make you feel.

My prefered music really depends on my mood,
but in general I love:

Rock music
Heavy Metal
Some Pop
Traditionals like Celtic/Irish music
Everything Alternative
British music
Finnish music
and good old classical music.

There is actually only one sort of music I really can't stand and that is everything connected to Techno, House, Trance etc. I'm very sorry, but this kind of music really gives me a headache. But I see what can be inspiring, so all friends of this music please go ahead and also post here. It's a great possibility to get to know new things, ain't it?

Me, myself I played the piano many years back and I started to learn to play the drums (childhood dream came true a few years back :)

Some Artists I like:
NEGATIVE, HIM, The Rasmus (the older albums), Bob Dylan, The Chieftains, Bruce Springsteen, Technicolour, James Blunt, Coldplay, Smashing Pumpkins, Maija Vilkkuma, Poets Of The Fall, Guns & Roses, Metallica, Dead Can Dance, The Violente Femmes, Radiohead, Oasis, The Crash, Apocalyptica, The 69 Eyes, Kelly Clarkson, U2, Killers, The Pixies, Placebo, Johnny Cash, The Frames, The Doves, Irina, Alanis Morissette, Avril Lavigne, Billy Idol, R.E.M. ..... and many many more

You see it's an endless list :)

I hope we all will enjoy this community and that we can keep spammers out. Please help me with that and write me a note in case that there is a somehow fishy comment. I'd appreciate it.

Let's have fun

Well, I have the honour to introduce myself as the first new member besides the lovely "provider".

So, my name is Meefi, I'm in my 20ies and (to say it basically) student.

What is "my music"? I'm not totally fixed on one particular type, but there are some types of music I like more than others, so that I listen to it, visit concerts and kind of identfy with myself, such as:

- Metal, especially Folkmetal (meaning metal mixed with "Folkmusic", often violine/certain wind instruments/bagpipes, very melodic, often with "folkloric" lyrics) and that Happy-Speed-Melodic-Power-Fantasy-Whatever-Metal
- Medieval Music, the "basic" accoustic stuff (although it can get really boring hearing the same songs all over again without any new thing about it) as well as the "crossover" types (with industrial/rock or as said above metal-sounds)
- Gothic, but this term includes a veeery numerous selection of "subtypes", so let's just say I'm less oldschool (no Punkish, Batcave, Wave etc-Stuff), but more the Metal/Rock-Things, Industrial, Medieval...
(at this point I have to say that I'm not very good with cathegoring music and I also don't like it so much)
- Classic, but that's very dependable on my mood (I loove baroque music when I'm in a good mood, but if I'm not or my parents tried to wake me up with that on saturday mornings, it can make me really aggressive *g*)
- some of the rockstuff, my parents used to listen to, when they where young (and still do)
- Soundtracks
- and whatever I like besides those ;)

Now a little "from those I have CDs/MP3s"-band-brainstorming :
Amorphis, Nigel Kennedy, Subway to Sally, Tanzwut, Teräsbetoni, Queen, J.S.Bach, Brahms, Blind Guardian, Korpiklaani, In Extremo, ASP, Rammstein, Apocalytica, Vogelfrey, Helium Vola, Haggard, System of a Down, Sentenced, Metallica, Eric Fish, Adversus...

I guess, I forgot a lot ;)

Besides, I make (ok, not at the moment, but I'm planning to change that soon) music myself, as I play following instruments:
- violine (12 years of lessons! So far just classical stuff, but I'm planning to be involved in some "crossover" projects)
- piano (taught myself when I was a kid, just played for myself so far)
- gitar (yay, I can do the campfire-accompaning-style-accordplaying!)
- e-bass (year, well...with those tabulator-score I'm able to play easy things. But I played at least in our mini Bigband, which performed at our highschool-leaving-party..)
- jew's-harp *lol*
- and I started to learn tin whistle, which is perfect to annoy your flatmates ;)
I'd like to lear at some point playing a crumhorn (old childhood dream...I want to build one myself as well) or maybe try out the Finnish National Instrument Kantele. But these are inconcretical dreams....yet!

So far from me! (I might edit this, if new thing come to my mind)

Good night,

One of the greatest sing- and songwriters of our time was born as Robert Allen Zimmerman 65 years ago. Guess who? ............. You guessed right! Mister Bob Dylan is celebrating his birthday today and I hope he'll have a good one. He brought us so many song masterpieces and inspired so many among us (I have to say I might be a victim of his inspiration, too, because I have the weirdest feeling that my father is actually very infected by the Dylan virus) This is actually good to know that everybody - whatever age - shares some kind of affection for music or movies.

And Many More To Come

Well, well the release date for NEGATIVE's third and upcoming album is out. The titel will be "Anorectic" and it will be released in Finland 30.8.2006.
Can't wait to hear the new songs. NEGATIVE are such a great young glam-rock band also influenced by Guns & Roses and Hanoi Rocks. I don't know whether or not do I like the titel "Anorectic". It's known that they are very skinny and Jonne is said to be anorectic, but then why name the album like that. Maybe they are just fed up with the whole fuss about it and just want to tease a little bit (I don't think it's very provocative though). Whatever the titel I actually care more about the new songs. Jonne said it will be like the "bad sister" of the two other albums "War Of Love" & "Sweet & Deceitful". Sounds good to me, because "Rock Music Should Be Sexual And Angry" according to Mr. Murphy and I agree with that, otherwise it would be Pop, Wouldn't it?
