1 HOUR + OF NEW TOM MILSOM SONGS!!!!
Published on Mar 13, 2013
I love how it looks like we are all glad tom burned his thumb…what I want to know is how and why he did.
Bcasue believe it or not, there may be a few of you not following my fanblog for him. :)
First page, nice. If you haven’t tweeted out the link yet: Tom Milsom - Home on @hypem http://awe.sm/j2B18
Hey! My video for Kelvinbridge, a song from Alien Home, is up! Watch it! Love it! Let its psychedelicism root itself in your mind and lick a tree frog!
music: http://tommilsom.bandcamp.com/ or iTunes…
I’m currently listening to an album Tom tweeted about.
A person from England.
and I’m listening to it on my computer, not a physical from.
He didn’t have to mail it me, I didn’t have to go to his house and dig through his records (though that would be freaking awesome). I didn’t have to go down to the record store and but it. I didn’t have to be the cool kid in the clique.
I don’t even have to to tell him I’m listening to it because of him (though I kind of will because I’ll be tagging this).
But it’s just so different to the way I grew up sharing music.
First It was your parents, the television, friends from school, the radio, (I got my own stereo when I was 12 in my bedroom and figured out there was more that the ’60s oldies my parents played us! Buttrock, AC/DC phase commence! LOL) and you got that new friend when you were 16 who introduced you to SO many things: Ska, and “original” punk, and The Stranglers, and didn’t make fun of you for calling Green Day punk (like some assholes later in life would).
He just said “let me play you some real punk” and put on social distortion, and the clash, and operation Ivy… Oh and he had the stones, and the b-52’s, and stoner music - and so many I don’t remember…god I’m OLD :(
I take his openmindedness with music with me in my internet searches, and Tom’s has merged into that too.
Teenager me would never have like the Boredoms, or shoegaze. Never be afraid to open your mind.
This could be SO long.
Anyway, I made a post about the music tom tweeted over on FYTM if you are interested.
TL;DR: I love how much music I have access to with the click of a button nowadays!
