LPs, Brian Eno, and twentysomethings.

Rock's Renaissance Man

LPs, Brian Eno, and twentysomethings.

Postby Wickeddoll on June 1st, 2011, 4:18 am

My daughter says kids in her age group (she'll be 21 in July *sniff*) are really getting into Brian Eno, along with TH material...on vinyl! Of course like every good TH geek, I have all of the LPs well-preserved, which my daughter says will keep going up in value. She made the mistake of saying that, before asking me if she could have them.

I told her I don't miss the hissing, crackling sound of LPs, and I know she'll hold onto them as long as she can, without selling them to pay the rent, so she can have them.

According to my son (23) vinyl is making a comeback, because the sound is purer - you an hear things in the analog vinyl recordings, that you can't hear in digital. That sounds bizarre to me.

Thoughts?

Not sure about Eno, but I can definitely vouch for Talking Heads, I'm twenty two and only got into TH about two years ago, also I hear alot more TH songs in pubs and on the radio. Mostly Stop Making Sense though, and I would love more young people to get into David Byrne's solo stuff, a few of my friends really like Everything that Happens... It sure beats Ke$ha :D but perhaps not in popularity.

Actually come to think of it, I did once go to a bar that played DB & Theivery Corporation Hearts a Lonely Hunter, over and over again for at least 2 hours! The volume was quite low so nobody seemed to notice, still though it was very bizarre. :?

That's interesting, JD - what about vinyl? Are you or any of your friends into that?

I saw lots of young people at DB's concert, (link to pix is in my signature) so I wasn't surprised when she said kids were into TH/DB, but vinyl really surprised me, as did Brian Eno popularity.

Eh I know a few people who are into vinyl, but not many.
I have a few myself but find mp3 easier, can't be bothered searching for vinyl, I guess I'm lazy. :D
Saw the pics, and reminded me there was quite a few young people at Ride, Rise, Roar screening in Bristol. They seemed to be the kind of hipster type.

I always thought Eno was more popular than DB because of his association with U2.

I got into Bowie when I was 13. so I've been exposed to Brian Eno for a long time now, last year, during this month, I got to meet him! he signed my "Heroes" album, what a day that was.

I don't know anyone my age where I live who's into David's solo work, but everyone I talk to knows Talking Heads and they like the most popular tracks.

I have many albums on vinyl, but just because I collect stuff. I would like to listen to vinyl someday, but even if the sound isn't as sharp, nothing beats the convencience of the ready to go CD.

It's not just convenience for me - I hate the scratching, skipping, hissing, distortion, etc., associated with LPs. I love digital music - so much easier, and lasts way longer.

The one truly great thing is the artwork though!

That can be put on a CD cover, too...

It looks/feels different on vinyl, it's all part of an experience. I prefer putting on a cd/ipod than changing a vinyl every 20 minutes, but holding a vinyl of your favorite record in your hands and looking at the artwork is a very special thing.

Actually I know what you're talking about. Vinyl artwork looks and feels really nice, and yes, I feel my stuff :roll:
I have The Catherine Wheel on Vinyl and the artwork is beautiful, the blue and white inner sleeve is very nice to look at, and if I'm not mistaken, isn't included in the cd version.

I'm with you, Nat. I prefer not to hear the scratches and the hiss. But they just closed a vintage clothing store here in K.C. and replaced it with a vinyl store. Maybe I'll go look at the album covers one day.
There's no way to communicate.

Curiouser and curiouser.
