C is for Barns Courtney


It’s amusing to me that Barns Courtney follows Courtney Barnett. What can I say? He is equally fantastic. It’s hard to believe that smoky voice comes out of a twenty-six year old. I totally adore the song “Fire” with its spaghetti western elements. While the single fittingly featured in the movie “Burnt”, the lyrics reflect Barnaby Courtney’s career struggles and ensuing frustration. I can’t get enough of this gritty tune and wish him all the best.

Crap is today’s phony band. They play unadulterated, unapologetic thrash metal. The four members of Crap credit early Anthrax and Slayer releases as direct inspiration.

  1. I am not really up on country music anymore. I stopped tuning into them a few yrs ago when I started jamming to the songs of my youth on the OLDIES station....yep, I said, OLDIES! haha....but I have to wonder what CRAP would sound like! Well CRAP guessing I will never know!

    2. Morning Darla, yes, I did take the pic of the cat! Isn't she beautiful. I took maybe a couple years before she past away. She was the cat of a long time friend, Barb. Barb and I have been friends since about the age of 12.....lets just say, A LONG TIME.

    3. That's cool. I have a friend like that, though she drives me crazy. ~grin~ Don't tell her.

  2. Crap, eh? Talk about piggybacking! Must listen to Barns Courtney. I remember decades ago, when I first heard Rick Astley singing , I was surprised to hear his voice...so unexpected! Hugs Darla!

    1. Hugs back to you, Vidya, my dear. I had to look up the singer you mention and got a blast from the past. The video I linked below absolutely screams eighties! Thank you for the walk down memory lane.

  3. I don't think I could listen to Crap. Have you considered including videos to the real artists to give us a sampling of what they sound like?

    1. Thanks for the comment, Mary. You made me grin. As for the video, I can't seem to make it work. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I should keep trying, though. Be well!

  5. Wow, two similarly named artists/acts. Did you say they sounded alike? I certainly hope not.

    1. Heh. They sound completely different, actually. And on that note I need to find video of her ramen noodle song. It's awesome. Thanks for the support, Liz, especially since I learned that music isn't really your thing. Be well!

  7. I can think of lots of bands that could be renamed Crap! I have a favourite 'smoky' voice and I listen to him loads - Tom Waits. He's a bit older than 26 though!

    Another day in Amble Bay!

    1. Ha! So true, especially with all the Auto Tune use. Ugh. Give me Tom Waits any day over some of this garbage. Have I shared this with you before? It's great:

      Waits’ voice was described by music critic Daniel Durchholz as “sounding like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a car.”
