IME, in performed music there's 'defined' and 'redefined' which doesn't always involve refinement ... it can involve deconstruction, yet there's always boundaries ... the only unbounded musical events that occur are in nature and accidental [sorry birds, you've been disqualified by your 'songs'] all music springs from the human predilection to impose order and patterns on perception ... and now I'm off in the weeds on this
anyway, that's why I've indicated the band I did as progenitors of a rock sub-genre ... but they didn't necessarily set out to do this
of course they played simple chord changes that never strayed far from traditional blues /rock progressions etc. but the presentation broke some new ground just as their lyrical themes echoed the splinter culture they sprang from ... my approach to looking back at the roots of this subject is more in keeping with my background education in social anthropology, not just a music fan boy ... also in keeping with the 'red meat' question thrown out, while noting what reactions / responses are elicited; thank gawd you weighed in on it! and I thoroughly appreciate Goober's input too!
ah well, there's still only 12 notes employed in the 'western scale' of musical composition so once melodic and lyrical content is stripped away things look a lot more 'same' than they do 'different' ... only our ears can tell us truth while only experience will find the unique
thank you Story for posting on, and elevating the thread, and I want the Cactus Cowboy's vinyl stash to an almost embarrassing degree
btw, I don't know if you listened to Blue Cheer but their drummer Paul Waley, in addition to having an excellent rock name, is really a pretty accomplished 'pounder' that can move around his kit with great facility
and power ... you won't hear any press rolls or paradiddles from him though ... unless they're by accident ... his drumming speaks to me though
best regards again,
when I was a wee lad it was da bomb. Everybody wanted a garage band to play it. When I played in my first garage band they called them garage bands for a very good reason. Mom said "NOT IN THE HOUSE!". The neighbors either came over to listen, or called the cops. The cops knew us quite well because my older bro had a band before me so they came right over to #39 hillcrest.
it's nice to have an older sibling to 'break them in' eh?
your prior point about 'heavy meta' or hardcore ...
I despise 'cookie monster' vox ... a band can be crunching along when !!!!
