Bone Machine

I searched and the only topic for this band was a "want to get" thread. So, here goes. what do you all think of this band? I gotta say I really enjoyed the first cd. Dogs gave me the needed sound of those classic D2 albums. I also have the live cd and at one point in time I had the live VHS. man, do I wish I still had that. It was very low budget filming but still worth having. what are your fav songs? Missing you is one that sticks out a lot as well as See The Light.

Two very good studio albums, with Ted still at his vocal prime. I did own the live album, but really couldn't find a reason to justify keeping it, so it went. Like any live album of a good band it was decent, but I'd never bother spinning it after the first time.

 

Essential tracks for me are:

 

(From 'Dogs'):

 

'Think of U'

'Life and Times'

'Missing You'

'Mrs. Frankenstein'

'Don't Mean Shit'

 

And 'Believe in your heart' would be next in line.

 

(From 'Disappearing Inc.'):

 

'Lately'

'Anisha'

 

And the valid reworkings of the songs on the debut.

 

A few of their songs - sadly a lot of the best ones from 'Dogs' - did drag on pointlessly towards the end, but there was really some great stuff on the two discs. In all honesty, they probably could have waited and just recorded the one full disc of great songs, editing stuff like 'Life and times' and 'Don't mean shit' to just feature the actual songs without the bullshit, but they're 2 CDs well worth having anyway.

I like both studio albums, and the live album is worth having for the studio track, See the light, which is one of my fave songs by them.

Off of Dogs I'd certainly pick my faves as Think of you & Believe in your heart. And from DI I'd go with Missing you (prefer this version) & Man alive.

 

I dont think there are any bad songs on their albums, but those were certainly the standouts for me.

 

Have to say, I always used to laugh at the cover of the live album as the tank was running over the monkey from the cover of Screw it, which was certainly Ted giving a big FU to D2 at the time.

You forgot Man Alive,The Only Ones, Shell Shocked and The Song. Great album and the production is way above the debut which sounded like shit but had awesome songs. Great band...would have loved to heard more from them.

man, the lyrics "hindsight can be 20/20. looking back it all seems so clear" has been stuck in my head all day. I thought it was a Danger Danger song so I was trying to go through them and thought, maybe it is Bone Machine. finally I found it. those 2 lines were all that I could think of as lyrics, so those 2 lines drove me crazy today.

I just grabbed a mint copy of Dogs from Amazon for like $7. Dis. Inc goes for decent money these days but I found a good copy on Amamzon for $16...unfortunately the seller has not shipped and doesn't reply to emails so I suppose I will start over. Wish I still had my Japan Press from years back :(

My dissapearing Inc is in good condition except for when Ted signed it last year he drew a plane flying into each of the twin towers and I about shit when he did it. I don't plan on ever selling it and I guees it's one of a kind. It also says "To Wes, oops my ESP strikes again". I'm assuming he must of got shit for having those falling down on the cover 5 years before it actually happened.

I think its on Wikipedia, it points out that the album cover was eerily prophetic.

It may have even been why the album got deleted.

 

Not as bad as the Dream Theater live scenes from NY disc that had them on fire and I think that one came out the day of or a week before 9/11.

I remember that, funny as hell when he did that!

 

I just picked up the live Bone Machine cd yesterday on Amazon. I had some credit card points built up so it ended up costing me $1.30 total.

It's awesome how they allow you to use those points on there. :party421:

How do you do it? I should have a fuckload of 'em.

The Amazon points? I have the Chase Amazon card and up until a couple weeks ago the only way you could redeem them was to go thru the credit card company. But suddenly Amazon now has the points listed and when you are checking out there should be an option to use your points when you are choosing payment method.

 

It's nice because at work when we need to order printer ink or other office supplies I just put it on my Amazon card, the boss cuts me a check when it arrives and I keep the points. :beerbang:

    • Try the first 3...s/t , One Step Closer , Dance In The Fire...but they do have a couple of best of's...Decade I & II...as you say the studio albums contain filler but some good quality stuff also.
    • FOREIGNER’s MICK JONES issues statement: “Fans will have become very aware that for some time now, I have not been performing onstage with the band. A number of years ago I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. I want everyone to know that I am doing alright, however, l've always liked to be at my best when performing onstage, and sadly at present find that a bit difficult. I'm still very much involved in the background with Foreigner and remain a presence. Parkinson's is a daily struggle; several of my friends are also dealing with the disease. The important thing is to persevere with the loving support of my family, and remind myself of the wonderful career l've had in music. I thank all the fans who have supported Foreigner throughout the years and continue to attend our concerts. Please know I appreciate your support; it always means so very much to me, especially so at this point in my life.”
    • Does anyone have some recommendations on where to start with this band? It seems like every album I try listening to has some good songs but also a lot of filler...
    • Good news, I really like Confess :-)
    • Great band and they've been on fire since they got this vocalist but that's not a great choice for a single IMO. It just kind of meanders along.
    • Good call. He's a bloody good keyboard maestro let's be fair.
    • Vinyl only bonus tracks pisses me off. Why? A cd could fit the bonus tracks far easier. Jerks. I'm annoyed about that.
    • New song 'Defiance' from the album of the same name (out April 19th). Tracklisting: 1. From The Start 2. Defiance 3. Feelin' Lucky 4. I Surrender 5. Forever In My Heart 6. Never Can Say Goodbye 7. One Heart 8. Give It Up 9. Nightswim 10. Standing Tall 11. Let’s See    
    • John says he is still in Confess as well.  This was posted on the Confess FB page about an hour ago: TO CLARIFY SOME STUFF!   Yes, i've joined forces with Crashdiet, which feels very exciting indeed. With that being said, I’m still very much a part of confess. Confess is my high school Rock'n roll band that i sang in for the past 15 years and i have no intentions of leaving or changing that. We're currently working on new music and hopefully have something new to show you guys pretty soon.   // John Elliot https://www.facebook.com/confessofsweden?mibextid=JRoKGi
