As in their musical structure as well as touring constantly.
it's sufjan. maybe not constantly touring and putting out albums but every time he does either it has so much thought and planning put into it. would rather someone play 5 shows a year like his at the brighton dome last year than tour constantly.
... until I realize I have no idea how much he tours. But he definitely seems to put a lot of work into the albums: the Age of Adz is a pretty perfect example of this...
but when he does. whoa
For touring, I dunno, probably some shit ska band.
and introduced me to them when I was about twelve. Saw them once at King Tuts in Glasgow. Somehow the bouncer believed I was sixteen and let me in.
Anyhow, my real point is, they were fucking spectacular live.
I've still got my king prawn tshirt. It got me a job once in a bookshop. FUN FACT!
Blood Red Shoes, tour pretty much constant and their music is absolutely brilliant.
It's obviously Wiley or someone. He puts out 100 or more tracks every year. In the past year he has toured twice, released 3 mixtapes, an EP and 2 studio albums. If you were to go back just 2 years that would include the time he have away 5 zip files full of material. He must put out well over a hundred tracks every year.
over a hundred tracks every year!!
...I heard an interview with him recently where he said that he approached music as a 9 to 5, Monday to Friday job. Which sounds reasonable, what with the 99% perspiration 1% inspiration idea.
Similarly, from reading Mark E Smith's biography he also views being a musician as something to be worked at. Hence why there is an album every year, with at least one tour (where they don't play the same venues/towns every time), and usually s stylistic shift.
it's probably some random noise band...
but where volume and quality are both mostly high I would say Aidan Baker...
Plus countless other splits and collaborations incl. a very underrated one with Tim Hecker...
but MC Hammer is the hardest working man in showbusiness
