Music I listen to while running my still

Please be kind to others. Personal preference just is. There is no right or wrong.

Music I listen to while running my still

Postby Cats-a-fighting » Thu Aug 16, 2007 6:59 am

I listen to old Balkan style music. It has a hypnotising fast playing accordian and along with the lyrics it is good while drinking too. My favorite is "Peci cica rakiju otvo rio kapiju" translated is The old man that brews the rakija (whiskey) opens the door for all to drink. I will also listen to classic rock and southern rock. :8)

Kiss, Iron maiden, Poison, Motley Crue, Sabbath, Ozzie, Dio, Zeppelin, Skid row.....you get the drift! Usually it's not very loud because I'm generally listening for changes in the still.

ditto on the quiet.

I go by sound to tell when the still is about to boil up and insure that my coolant pump is running.

what cheffdaniels said. Throw in some Grandpa Jones, Stoneman Family, Nickel Creek, New Grass Revival and Alison Krauss.
Distill safe. Make good cuts. Enjoy yourself. Give as much as you take. Have fun doing this incredibly hard work. Be a good example. It's your hobby.

Looks like Dutch, Mort, Pint and I have similar taste in tunage. Some very old Linda Ronstadt should be tossed into the mix, along with some of the Memphis Mafia stuff--Elvis, Johhny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, BB King.....

Coops has great taste in music. For a youngin. :roflmao:

Just getting up on the tech meself. Bourbon Girl and i bought each other stereos for xmas, she got one for my ute and i got one for my shed :8)

I made sure they both had aux sockets and they also have this funny rectangular socket on the front. So i wandered out and bought a handfull of 4gb sticks and guess what?

They fit in the funny little socket :D

One of the stick's hold damn near 80 albums dragged and dropped on the puter, and they can plug in anywhere....

Don't need to keep cd's in my dusty ol shed or my hot car anymore, just a twenty dollar tossaway renewable stick :idea:


They're full of Lou Reed, Nick Cave, Floyd, Stones, Deep Purple, Radiators, The Band, Luis Armstrong, The Pretenders, David Bowie, Sting, Talking Heads ect with some newr stuff thrown in like The Ting Tings, Ben Harper, Lilly Allen, Daft Punk ect

Linda Ronstadt was soo cute in about '69 when she was with Stone Ponies.

I went out and looked at the stack in the shop...besides what I already mentioned there is George Thorogood, The Stones, some rockabilly guy called Reverend Horton Heat, and Tenacious D.

Yep she was a cutie pie. Now she's a pie. Stone Ponies. Great little band. Heart Like a Wheel, one of the best albums ever produced. Forgot to mention Pure Prarie League, Marshall Tucker Band and Commmander Cody.

I pretty much love everything.....I'm going to see Leonard Cohen in Feb but I really love my hair metal and NWOBHM.

I come from a 'classic rock' background but when my son was growing up he broadened my horizon quite a bit.I got to like AC DC and Metallica. As a matter of fact, he is still the one who brings in all the new music, and he has very wide tastes, metal to country and everything in between thats good.
We have a couple Leonard Cohen vids we like to watch, I wonder if he still travels with the two lovely female singers? We saw Greg Brown last fall, Neil Young the year before, Bob Dylan the year before that on our annual trip to Seattle. Wonder who will be there next time.
