September photography challenge is `Music`

Recommended Posts

 

#2 from me

 

This gentleman is playing a carpenter's saw. I guess you could say that his music is on the cutting edge.

 

By one definition, a gentleman is a man who can play the accordion but choses not to.   :)

 

 

By another, a man who chooses to use a saw to cut his accordion into tiny, unplayable pieces.

I'm just happy Ornette Coleman never decided to play the musical saw.

Nice topic, music is the background to my life. First thing I do in the morning, even before I put the kettle on a say hello to the baby, is drop the needle onto whatever record is on the turntable, and my last task in the evening is to turn the music off. From the giant beats of Rammstein and Beethoven to the wizardry of Paganini and Ritchie Blackmore, the lone voice of Abbess Hildegard to the pomp and swagger of Verdi and the Red Army chorus, I love it all. Give me excess of it indeed. My pics then

Lemmy showing us what to do with a bass guitar. Taken from the balcony of Hammersmith Odeon in the good old days when you could get camera kit into a gig, 1985 or so. Indescribably loud, with so much wattage in the room that you can see your clothes beating and moving with the bass drum. All good clean fun.

Yes, it's amazing what can be done with just a saw and some talent. Another plus is that if your music career doesn't work out, you can always switch to something more lucrative such as carpentry.

Reminds me of the difference between a Banjo and a Ukulele....

That's a great record, and they certainly were very 'eavy. In fact they played a blinder. I only went because the alternative was an organic chemistry assignment, and it turned out to be a great show. It was a mosh pit of great liveliness, although nothing compared to a full metal stompathon. It was then that I appreciated what a good axeman Mick Box was and, as I said, how much beer sweat and spit an ME Super can take.

Altough not as viewed as the later (and lesser, IMO) "mix" version, the original is there too, with the imcomparable David Byron.

Took this image about a year ago.  I know it's not that great of an image but for some reason, I really like it.
