Glassjaw - Pretty Lush
Less Than Jake - This Is Going Nowhere
Massive Attack - Unfinished Sympathy
System Of A Down - I-E-A-I-A-I-O
Dead Kennedies - I Kill Children
De La Soul - The Magic Number

The sound quality of the MuVo is possibly the best of it's kind (portable mp3 players). It's essentially a USB flash drive that not only serves as a 64MB floppy drive, but plays music as well. It's very simple, compact & lacks those fancy features that other players offer - it's got only the six basic playback buttons.

PS: It's quite rugged too... It's fallen down thrice from my pocket, but still working as fine as ever!

I luv my muvo, gf bought me one for my birthday this year, serves me just right, small enough to slip inside my jacket pocket and not feel like I'm carrying a house brick around with me, plus gives me the USB stick functions as well, handy dandy for bringing stuff home from work, why carry two devices when you can carry one.

I got the 128mb version, sound quality is excellent if you use decent files on it, 128kbit's sound a little ropey, 192's sound just great, couple it with a decent pair of headphones, not the shitty ones that come with it, and it's a winner, battery life is good as well.

I have mine here with me now, loaded with Fun Lovin Criminals - Welcome To Poppy's, along with some photoshop files I've been working on at home.

Mr.Jones, what batteries do you use for your MuVo? I carry my MuVo to college, listen to it while going by the college bus (50min. to & fro). I normally use Duracell Plus & it lasts for about 4 days.

I use whatever batteries I can steal from the stationery cupboard at work

Mine get's about an hours use each day, usually to/from work , can get about 12 hours in total out of one AAA battery.

If I can get them, duracell, but like I say, whatever they have in at work at the time, I'd use re-chargeables if I didn't have an endless supply of them here...

It's pretty much the same case here as well . I'm just too lazy to go out and buy a pack for myself .

Duracell gives you upto 12hrs? that's amazing, compared to just over 6hrs that I get from my Duracell Plus (Energiser gives you upto 8hrs, but is too expensive) .

All the magazine reviews said the MuVo was sub-standard, but I knew it was cosher. After all, Creative have a good track record. I bought a Sony CD player instead - I can't complain, it reads CDRW's and I have 600 CD's just sat there. Battery life 10 hours, the AC charger's supplied so you just plug it in every now and then for a top-up. No need to think about batteries, but I could do a Jones if needed. Loaded for tomorrow:

Clan of Xymox - The Bitter Sweet (VNV Remix)
The Donnas - Too Bad About Your Girl
The Donnas - Take It Off
A Flock of Seagulls - Over My Head
PWEI - Kick to Kill
PWEI - Underbelly
Julie Ruin - Valley Girl Intelligentsia

A load of albums on various Minidiscs. My NetMD player can get 56hours battery life of the one battery, and I've crammed six albums on to a single MD before now, thanks to mdlp4. Since I use it on noisy buses and trains, I can cope with the slight loss of low-end quality.

True, but it's quality that counts. The Sony will last at least 5 years, it's very lightweight, has lots of features. Also with CDRW you need only own 1 disc.

Tears for fears was a huge success here in the early 90s (when we actually came to hear about New Wave bands, for the first time). It died out eventually, but I still love the band; especially two of their all time hits - 'Everybody wants...' and 'Break it down again'

What a thought Triton. Coming home from work to find Sam Fox washing your dishes.

I've acquainted myself with The Flying Steps this week (on your recommendation actually). Great retro. Very similar to the DMX Krew, although DMX don't use samples.

Retro? But aren't Flying Steps are more of a late 90s Techno band & their style of music is actually modern (doesn't resemble 80s or early 90s)?

But, I haven't heard of the DMX Krew or their music, so correct me if I'm wrong.

Don't forget you're in a timewarp in India!

I would say the Flying Steps style is hip-hop/breakdance circa 1983-4. Very much like the Rock Steady Crew, Break Machine, also infusing New Wave. Granted they're a new band, but the style's very retro (also heavy with the samples).

Have you heard: Break Machine - Street Dance (1984)?

Hmm... you're right, Cylob.

Yes, the style's pretty much the same as the 80s Break-Dance, which was a revolution here in the early 90s; everyone's forgotten it now, though. Well, it's kinda unfortunate that even the best modern bands aren't really modern . BTW, how old are you, Cylob?

I see it as a good thing really, someone taking a dead genre and bringing it back to life. Breakdance music was short-lived (2-3 years tops), it deserves another look. I thank Flying Steps for revisiting it. I'm 32, I was 13 when breakdance swept across the UK.

Also, you may be interested to hear that New Wave is making a comeback, only this time with a brand new set of bands (I've mentioned it here a few times).

80's retro is good.

I agree - 80s Retro rocks

But in my opinion, it's better to keep up with the times, than revisiting the musical past quite too often. It's alright if a band remixes some of it's previous big hits or remixes that of another past band of a similar genre; but if everyone is gonna do the same thing, then how will music progress in the future?

Having said that, I am looking forward to the resurgence of New Wave bands you've mentioned so far .

Sounds like a good set-up Taylor. A good investment.

On mine for today: Legowelt - Reports From the Backseat Pimp

I would slap on something ambient (a bit of Broadcast), but you'd never hear it through the traffic. Talk about noise pollution...
