    I was riding around with my band today & introduced them to "the most famous band you've never heard of", Good Rats. Specifically, their album "Tasty". That band was so awesome for their time.

    What's this "rock n' roll culture" you're referring to?

    Je suis désole, mon ami but rock is DEAD. No one under 20 gives a crap or even knows anything about it. Computers and hip-hop have taken over. Look at the charts and sales and see if I'm not right. Even bands who were filling arenas not too long ago are having to be part of package tours now. Even established bands have to tour for over 200 dates a year to see even the slightest profit as no one buys recorded product anymore.

    Despite my penchant for the hard/faster/heavier metal, one of my favourite bands ever are The Wildhearts. And two of my favourite ever songs by them are the closing two tracks from the 1994 fan-club mini-album release 'Fishing for Luckies'

    And the second one, cos PDF won't let you link two videos in the same post...




    Absolute stunning tracks, and mean so much to me from my childhood that no matter how many times I listen to them, I'm instantly transported back to that time. It's wonderful just how evocative of memory music can be

    Holy *****, I thought I was the only Wildhearts fan on here! You should see my Wildhearts & related CD collection. In my mind, Ginger is both the greatest & most unheralded songwriter of the last 30 years. It's good to know there's another fan on here.

    Dudes!!! I’ve never listened to a second of the Wildhearts but these tunes are AMAZING. Poppy harmonies and hooks but hard-driving British rock n’ roll at the same time. Crushed that I missed them over all these years.

    Any good place to start? Specific album?

    I say start with the album Earth vs. The Wildhearts. Not a particular song, but the whole album. It was unlike anything that existed when it came out & quite frankly, changed my life when I heard it.

    Be prepared for an unspectacular mix, but when you get past that, I think you should find it quite an album.

    A bit of trivia: Mark Ronson's final recording was some of the lead guitar solos on "My Baby Is A Head****".

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XM-i...V5UvONqWXBh-CG

    But, you really can't understand the depth of Ginger's songwriting ability by listening t only 1 of his albums. For example, a solo project of his was called Silver Ginger 5. As he said to me, it was his "chance to get his glam rocks off". That is madatory listening. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7bL...IvxJqSnzGCLvt0

    His Hey! Hello! project was just pure Japanese style pop rock perfection: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmPs...5vJwkj&index=1

    He did a year long online fan club thing in 2014 in which he recorded & released 3 songs each month (as well as released a treasure trove of other demos & written works). It touched on more genres than you could shake a stick at. Here are a few of my favorites from that year:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNJV5Jz3w7Y
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gkHcucD7Gk
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGS3i5Z6mks
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4yZ1Ox-51E

    It changes all the time, but I keep coming back to "Slaughtered Authors" as my favorite Wildhearts song. It is from their self titled album. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXeq5098VBU

    This all is just the very tip of the iceberg. NO ONE matches Ginger Wildheart's songwriting excellence or output (in my humble opinion, of course).
