The Move

I was at a party once with a bunch of esteemed metal colleagues and the Scorps record or whatever just ended so I took a chance and tossed some Move on. I said fuck it man, The Move. Ten seconds later bottle caps were hitting the floor like bullet casings from a machine gun and the house shook with a massive thud as 12 dudes fist bumped in unison. Who knew? Metal heads love the Move.




These dudes later evolved to become the pioneering players of proto-fanciness known as ELO. This would be proto-proto fancy metal (but with flutes and sitars and shit). Anyway, this is a classic record.

*fist=bumped*
P.S. my ex's dad was the tour manager for ELO, he had a pic of him shirtless, in short shorts in said (epic) van drinking a bottle of Dom Perignon. HAHAHA BEST PIC EVER

Your obscure collections are my salvation (salivation?)!

They have the heaviest bass thud.

Is that Roy Wood on vocals?

The Move's 'Looking On' LP is HEAVY. Get involved.

I'd like to hear the other band that came out of ELO, wizard. Please make that happen. :)

By the way, I love the move.

Wizard is cool, not nearly as good as The Move, but i will upload (bro move) asap.

No, Wizzard are NOT cool. We get fucking TORTURED with 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day' here for half of November and pretty much ALL of December here, EVERY YEAR. Since, like, 1973 or whenever. Which is ALSO why I have trouble listening to Slade, who rock MASSIVELY. Fucking christmas. the ONLY good christmas song EVER is 'Dominic The Christmas Donkey', and NO-ONE here has ever heard of it!! CURSE YOU SANTA!!!

the ONLY good christmas song EVER is 'Dominic The Christmas Donkey' = blatant falsehood, Thing, considering your familiarity with BAD NEWS.
