Hello,
I'm Dave, and I've decided to try this place out on the recommendation of Rayge, after another forum we used died a slow agonising death. Some of you may know me from there, imdb, or rateyourmusic. Some won't.

Just thought that I'd pop in and say hi.

Glad you made it, Fish.
I'll be looking forward to Beyond the 130 pieces on The Legendary Pink Dots, Nurse With Wound, Coil, TG, Alien Sex Fiend and the Dancing Did. Among others :D

Is there some logic behind the "Beyond the 130" title here? It has me rather baffled.

The board in general is obsessed with a 'canon' of rock artists, most from the 1960s and 1970s (Beck was included as a sop to 'modernity'), all the usual rockist suspects, and back in the pre-Rayge mists, they put together a BCB 100 of 'approved' acts (actually much less Stalinist than it seems). This was updated a couple of years ago, with various people added. No one was quite sure how many there were, so the BCB 130 was suggested as a title, and most of the artists got written up in threads of their own under the 130 banner.
However, in the putting together of this, it became apparent that virtually every worthwhile artist of the past 100 years was being excluded in favour of Prog, Beat Groups and general unspeakableness, so I, and others, lobbied for a forum where we could dribble on about non-mainstream stuff that we particularly liked; a list was put together with deadlines and everything at the start of this year, and I lumbered myself with its curation. The Beyond the 130 title was adopted to express the 'left-field' nature of the project (well, by this board's standards, anyway).
It was going well at the start, but was eventually derailed by my sudden acquisition of a life and involvement in various cups, plus a general disillusionment with listening to music in general that made it hard for me to research the literally dozens of acts to which I'd committed, and the habits of people changing their avatars and / or disappearing for a few weeks, which made my job as whip untenable. So I'm now lobbying the admins for separate sub-forums for the 130 and for Beyond and trying to doing the lazarus thing by making it more voluntary and, soon as the winter's here and I'm indoors more, treating people to my takes on such unsung (here) giants as Jan & Dean, Doll by Doll, and so on.

One of the biggest complaints on the board is that there are not enough threads on music, but people are still reluctant to start them on artists outside the Canon.

Ah, ok, that makes things clearer. I might have to get my writing boots on then.

As the board's sole representative of the conspiracy movement, i.e., 9/11=inside job, I welcome you Mr. Darkness Fish --- if that is your real name. :?

Oh, and do stay in the lines. Music goes over there and movies over there and general bullshit goes here.
I love you.

Not sure I'll be hanging around on prog corner, unless undercover, with an assumed identity. If Cluster counts though, I'm in!

Hi Steph. So that's three familiar faces here then? No others lurking under the turf?

Hi Darkness_Fish! We could use some voices here to oppose the dead hand of the 'good taste' 60s/70s classic rock.
