A good group of people and we have been around the Brian Wilson water cooler a bit.

This used to be called the Blueboard as the original site was mainly blue and yellow.  But here we are talking Brian and Beach Boys and yes, Lee, may be the unofficial mod and long-time poster here.  His background in everything pop music-related is deep from his career onward (or backward).  Longtime fan of the Beach Boys and Brian Wilson.

The Battle of Bands is a weekly, ongoing contest which is very well moderated.  A nice place to go to be part of something.  And it's easy to take part.  

I have met a number of people who post or have posted and we all have our common ground - love and respect for the music of one Brian D. Wilson.

Bugs did a nice job of support above as well.  These guys are fun to read.  

If you need any other help getting started, begin here:

And:

Or

Kind of melts anyone who is a fan of ANY music ^.  What ovations are meant for.

Come on in [smile]

Thanks 'lads'.  Gotta post to move this back into site/sight as "pujash" is hogging the spotlight with some nonsensical spam.  No really.  It IS spam.  We don't "welcome" people here and then single them out and call their contributions "spam".

[or do we? [wink] ]

Hey now!!!  Another 'bump up'.  That 'packer guy' continues to exert pain somewhere in the vicinity of the 'southern region'...in fact it's rather a nagging 'lower body injury'...as it were...sort of...kinda.

missing you already, squire
- yet strangely unable to rustle up the inner oomph
to request extramural guidance in your doings.
await further comms once your radiophonic whatsits are up and running,
or whatever you're up to
(a spiritual retreat in the himalayas?
extended tantric flying by the ganges?
air b'n'b in kahzakstan?
distillery tours of scotland?)
be as good as is feasible.
cheers

A Mod? We can ride our over accessorised Lambrettas down to Brighton, and once upon a time, Who concerts in our Kharkey Parkas singing "We are the Mods, We are the Mods" whilst reminiscing about Keith Moons most memorable toilet explosions with enough Amphetamines in our bellies to make A Rhinoceros tapdance, all washed down with 2 litres of Tomato sauce and a quart of 180 proof.
Like sawing your arm off, don't try this at home kids. I love Mods and would gladly display the fact if these practices had left me with the ability to move my limbs. Woops the typing wand fell off my nose WILMA!!!

You don't mean anyone can submit a raw composition done on a crumby DAT or something for people to vote upon do you? Just the Moderators submit a group of songs for people to critique yes? Honest question.
Submitting amateur compositions might be a fun idea though for the guy shy of performing due to not being able to dodge the veggie barrage. I wouldn't of minded if they had taken them out of the tins first.....
I feel out of time though. Should have been born in the Baroque era as I love free counterpoint. You spend 3 years learning to play the Gigue from the Bach lute suite, play it for the coterie and they ask if you know Stairway to Heaven...
As if you can get to Heaven on a set of stairs [wink] You can't fool me πŸ˜‰

fallstaff  - a man after my own heartiness.
not content with making a point,
you insist on a counterpoint.
most of us would fear falling off the counter
whlist engaging in a gigue
after all, it can be slippery when wet.
i find a rudimentary rendition of 'smoke on the water' clears the decks
with utmost speed.
raw decompositions, however, just linger and clog up the works...

Its a ruse, ruminated plotted and set down πŸ˜‰ The first song most guitar players learn, "Smoke on the Water" is Parallel fifths, a Counter point sacrilege as bad as not resolving a leading note upwards or resolving the tritone to the Major third. It say's much, both for and against the modern idiom if scrutinised with an empathetic eye, and I must admit guilt of it πŸ˜‰ but how those guys can expect to play like Tedesco, Burrell  or Kaye with their Axe strapped and slung like a Priapism is where I draw the line πŸ˜‰ As if the gals don't know where it is πŸ˜‰
Be well all.

pal, i'm of an (almost venerable) age
where i'm privileged to have seen andrΓ©s segovia perform,
here in sunny brighton in 19sixtygawdknowswhen
(before i ever saw the beach boys play the same venue in summer '69).
i've also been fortunate to see lenny kaye play guitar with the monumental patti smith
plenty of times, though i don't recall arousal...
and, talking of priapism,
aubrey beardsley was the most famous, ever, old boy of my school,
yet no one there spoke of him until there was a major retrospective of his work
at the victoria and albert museum, london in 1966
(coincidentally or not, the same year as 'pet sounds' was released).
after that, he was a school hero,regardless of any tumescent bulgey bits and all that...
cheers

That sounds great Paul. I mentioned Kaye, as in Carol so as to include a lady that was also somewhat pertinent to the site, but seeing Lenny would still be a great night out.
My Great Grandfather was T.W.Connor who was famous for the London music hall fame and one of the group of them to obtain some fame in the US. My Grandfather played Alto Clarinets and various other wind instruments.
The family immigrated to Australia to this day, and I'm just waiting for my sentience to expire πŸ˜‰ One day I hope to build a little yacht to see out my days and sail back up to England and see the Hebrides as mum came from Barra.
The priapism comment was a personal observation made as gently as possible in consideration of the little tummy people, with respect the guys that sling their guitars like a fig leaf with their arms fully extended dead straight downwards. I always wondered how they thought they could play well that way and showed not so much a love of an art I hold kind of sacred (its kind of how I prayed throughout life) but a love of something else entirely approached in an indirect manner; but it takes all types and I'm no final authority, and sure you probably grokked.
Audrey was a controversial for many years wasn't he. Another man out of time. Don't ever say the high profanity word "leg" or for the matter "trousers" in Victorian England. Trousers were the Southern necessity WHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, and apparently we didn't develop legs until the First World War. You can't say "leg" but you can go overseas and kill a division of strangers for the Central banks. Go figure. I always figured that drunk stork on Bugs Bunny dropped me off on the wrong planet; and they called me eccentric!
I'm not so much a FANatic, though of course love Mr Wilson, but was attracted by the lack of pretense, and to be honest get a little lonely or bored at times and its far superior to the options to be cybernetic allies among an understanding bunch of people, even if I find what passes for social life in this age a little bit sad to be honest.
We sound very close in age but suspect I came about ten years after (pun intended) as I was born in 1960 to get the ball rolling LOL.
Be well mate. May it all be downhill for ya.

I wouldn't be too worried about Trump old chap. Presidents haven't really mattered as much as the public have been sold since Wilson (no relation) sold you out to the Central banks right before the First World War when many western democracies (democracies whahahahahahaha) had income taxes imposed to aid with the war effort, that TPTB said they would give back upon cease of hostilities; they just never did. The timing of hostilities, the 20,000,000 dead of global flu epidemic and the Central banks ceasing power all stinks to high heaven. 
You guys know the Golden rule right? who holds the Gold makes the rules? Well the US government hasn't held the Gold since then and if Presidents mattered you'd be operating on the Silver standard Kennedy set before he was murdered. The Rockefellers sold you all out at Jekyll Island and its gone downhill since then. Unless we get free of the British Central banks the world is done for and I am not speaking metaphorically. If presidents are not allowed to mint the cash and can only do so after a loan from the central banks AT INTEREST THAT IS NEVER MINTED, where does this interest come from (how big is your national debt again) that's right its theft so a banker can steal the entire planet a foreclosure at a time, and the same demonic entities use America as global cops and bullies so the real villains smell like roses. Incidentally a white and a Red rose. Forget the War of Independence, you never really got rid of them if they shot every President some twice until they got their Central bank compound interest scam in. (and you can consider J.W.Booth a Rothschild just like the other booth that started the Salvation Army who have a Red Shield Appeal and Rothschild means Red Shield in German, with your loyal fraternities acting as an information vector back to folks not totally with your well being at heart)
You see, it aint what you know that's the problem, it what ya know that just aint so.
Don't ya just love Samuel Clements.
I thought it important to mention this because you guys are in huge trouble too with the same evil SOBS pulling the same histrionic shootings to disarm you all as was used here(I was in a medical facility with a guy called Wade Frankum before he hit the headlines as he was given government sponsored hypnosis I witnessed. GOOGLE THAT NAME for that poor mans "OFFICIAL" story), but if no one likes this sought of thing just say so and I'll change the subject.
