Is anyone else a Filter fan; can I get a show hands?



So just for fun,

who is a fan of the band "Filter" who put out radio hits such as

"Take my Picture."

"Where do we go from here?"

and "Hey Man, Nice Shot."


and much more of course.

So speak your minds on the band.

QATFYG:
Do you like other bands of this genre?


Where do we go from here?

  1. "Hey Man, Nice Shot," "Jurassitol," and their cover of "One" were all great.

  2. good stuff,

    on my radio stations down here in West Virginia "Hey Man, Nice Shot" got crazy radio play during the 2000's.
    I heard the song was about Bud Dwyer's televised suicide, and after watching the video of it, it makes the song feel so alive (ironically for Bud.)

  3. That's messed up. First I've heard about it, and I just read the whole Dwyer thing. I choose to believe he was innocent just for the romanticism of it.

  4. well, the truth is probably in the grave.
    :(
    hey man, nice shot was on the short bus album, which is great stuff.
    But once they put out the Amalgamut, it was one of the first times I really the more polished sound from a band,

  6. I've owned a number of copies of Short Bus over the years and I always remembered it as a good album. I played it again a few weeks ago and the lyrics were sort of embarassing on some songs. I've only heard Title of Record and The Amalgamut a few times but the sound is very different. Though I'll admit I was into "Take My Picture" when it came out

  7. "Take my picture" is a really good song, but it is much lighter than the Filter that I normally like it.

    What are some of the examples of embarrassing lyrics ....oh do continue :)

  8. This particular rhyme scheme from "Dose" stands out.

    I hate it when you preach your case / It makes me wanna stick my dick in your face

  10. I like Filter. Did you take journalism ethics with Wilson Al? he was obsessed with that Bud Dwyer thang. wish I could have known you, Bud!

    "Take a Picture" is a great song. what is/are Filter doing anymore? and did they form from NIN or Tool? I always forget.

  11. Richard Patrick was in NIN as a touring guitarist, I believe. And someone else was in Stabbing Westward. I think I read that one of the riffs from, "Hey Man, Nice Shot," maybe, was originally from a SW song.

    An interesting fact: Richard Patrick's brother, Robert Patrick, played the T-1000 in Terminator 2 and was the B-list replacement for David Duchovny after he left the X-Files.

  12. yes,
    you mean Agent Dogget ( i am spelling that wrong.)

    I do feel bad for Robert Patrick, because he is still mainly known for playing the T-1000. He just hasn't made a role that was bigger than that one so long ago.

    @Britt,
    Listening to that dingdong idiot Wilson talk about Bud Dwyer almost ruined the filter song for me. Wilson and I are not on the same page in the info pamphlet that is life.

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

Tusse releases French Language Version of "Voices"

In case you missed Eurovision this past weekend - and if you're an American, you likely did - there were some truly talented acts among those competing for this year's prestigious title. There were some pretty boring acts, and there were only a few of truly strange contestants this time around (bummer).  Sweden's act Tusse was pretty talented; his joyful and uplifting track "Voices" was actually one of the few that seemed rather memorable to me. Turns out he's releasing it in French - which makes sense, as Tusse is Kongo-Kinshasa born. Tusse is enormously popular in Sweden from what I can tell, having won both Melodifestivalen (Sweden's precursor to Eurovision) and Swedish Idol. He's a talented guy, and I'm sure we're just seeing the start of what is bound to be a long and prolific career.   (you might not be able to watch this outside of Sweden so, see below) The French version of "Voices" is available for streaming here .  Also, whi

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
