Acoustic Spam. Ain’t nuthin’ better.

Spam – one of the worst words in the modern language.  Whether it be in your email, on your fax, from bands or even from family members (yes, it happens) – it has become an all encompassing phenomena.  It is used to describe anything that you didn’t ask for but are presented with, regardless if you end up liking it – it can still be spam.  It is one of those words that automatically create a negative impression and sometimes I think spam can do some good in this crazy modern world we now live in.  It is only slightly less threatening than the word “discriminate”, which is only a description of an action and you have to decide if…oh, wait – another time and another place.  Music blog…right.

So…this acoustic spam I put in the title of this post.  In a recent blogger forum there was a post that included a magnificent acoustic video from Meursault (a personal favourite around Slowcoustic HQ) and I had to re-post it here.  I don’t know how this particular thread went from public relation emails to remixes to spam, but sometimes ramblings in an online community forum can be good for something.  Good for finding some damn fine acoustic spam!
