1  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Who Sounds Like The Beach Boys? on: April 28, 2018, 12:40:42 AM
I don't think The Fendertones should belong in this thread, because they are a Beach Boys cover band and I think willmansell  meant bands that are influened by The Beach Boys and are close to sounding like them

The Heavy Blinkers

The Surf School Dropouts

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJIxbgLnZx4

And this REM song sounds exactly like The Beach Boys

I can't stand the song at all. The Today version is even worse than the Summer Nights version. I think it's one of the most boring songs The Beach Boys have ever realeased

Bad Religion recorded an German version of Punk Rock Song in the 90s. Totally crazy!

18  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Do 'Older' Beach Boys Fans Appreciate Their Music Differently? on: July 07, 2016, 04:28:40 AM
I was born in 1980 and grew up in the early 90's listening to punkrock like Bad Religion, NOFX etc. In the early 90's there was no internet and there were no possibilties of burning cds. So we recorded the cds to tapes and listened to either the cds or tapes. So I have always appreciated whole albums rather than single tracks. And I when I listen to The Beach Boys, I do it the same way: complete albums.

This is the part I hate about the Beach Boys twofers. The first album is over and the second one starts immediately. So you don't really get the real listening experience. They should have released them as double-cds.

And I'm afraid peolpe today who don't spend time listening to whole albums miss a whole lot about music
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson 2016 Tour Thread (Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary Tour) on: May 23, 2016, 06:28:00 AM
I posted my thoughts in the UK Pet Sounds Review thread, but I copied it here as well.


I was at the show at The Palladium last Saturday and before you read the rest, I had an amazing night and it was great. BUT...

It was just sad to see him on stage like that. He didn't really hit the right notes, his voice was just ruff. And he totally didn't seem to be in the same room as the rest of the band. He never smiled or laughed or anything (at least from my seat). It was really depressing to see him there. And before the break he didn't even stay on stage until the last song was over.  It was kind of weird. If I was just a random fan, someone who only went to the show because it said Brian Wilson and Pet Sounds, I would never go to a Brian Wlson show again.

I always go to Brian shows because of his amazing band. If he didn't have them it would be even more awkward. Blondie on the other hand was out of control and rocking the house!

But you have to give him credit for having the courage to go on tour and perform albums like Smile and Pet Sounds. Mike would never do stuff like this.  So as long as Brian is touring I will always go, because I'm a fan of his music and his band, but not of his stage-appearance. And like every other Brian show, I still ha a blast because of the band.

A few questions that someone here might be able to answer:
1. Is he aware of his live voice?
2. Why does he still go on tour when he's clearly not enjoying being on stage?

So much from me,
Rüdiger

One of my all time favorite album covers
25  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Best Beach Boys / BW inspired song?? on: February 13, 2016, 01:53:25 AM
Here's one for the adventurous listeners.

Bracket are a pop punk band and all their albums have wonderful vocal harmonies. But on their latest album Hold Your Applause they actually sound like the punk version of Smile. It has weird out of place songs, strange chord progressions, beautiful pop songs, crazy vocal harmonies.

Take a listen, you won't be disappointed!
