Neil Young or Justin Bieber?

It was a tough call, Young > Bieber, Bieber > Young, I’ve been agonising all day!

This week I’ve still mostly been listening to Josh, J Mascis & Lift To Experience, but I did find 40 mins to watch the recent film that accompanies last years fine Neil Young album ‘Le Noise’. I’ll always buy new stuff by Neil but this album really goes some. I was surprised to find the video on YT and I’m sure it will only open in YT situ so sorry about the lack of embedding, but really, give it a try. It’s a great film and perfectly reflects the album. The ‘le noises’ coming out of this are classic Neil & Blackey.

I have no idea if the Bieber boy has sold as many records as Neil (I’m sure his recent album ‘My Worlds’ has sold more than ‘Le Noise’) through his career, and Justin’s male grooming regime seems more developed than Neil’s, but we probably need to sit back and see who’s career has the greatest longevity to really judge.

I’m not going to diss the Bieber. My older monkey seems to like him at the same time as knowing all the words to ‘Palaces of Montezuma’ by Grinderman so what the hey.

Heres an associated treat. I have lost the seeder comment but effectively this is Neil live in Washington DC in 2010 a little before ‘Le Noise’ was released. It includes tracks from the new album as well as some stone cold classics like ‘Down By The River’ & ‘Cortez The Killer’. All played solo, with Blackey and a serious fuzz box.
