Mike Oldfield: Tubular Bells

Henry Cow: UnrestIn Praise of Learning

 

 

an ode to Hudson Yards for sure:

 

"High in offices we stared into the turning wheel of cities

dense and ravelled close yet separate: planned to kill all encounter.
Intricate we saw your state at work its shapes
abstracted from all human intent. With our history's fire
we shall harrow your signs."


------------------------------

 

“We wanted a higher level of culinary discourse”

 

"I was much further out than you thought

And not waving but drowning."

I feel like Fred Frith has the answer to everything.

 

And what he doesn't, Simon does.

For my birthday I just put on a long playlist from Scott Walker’s mid-career, the MOR and movie themes. But I fell asleep anyway.

 

"Anyway".

Sneak, you didn’t recommend a dub compilation in the last couple of months did you? I was listening a few weeks ago and now blanking on the title.

Okay, apparently I downloaded it. This should be in the thread about losing stuff.

Bunny Lee, Dubbing in the Front Yard/Conflict Dub. Exceptionally good, just wonder where I heard about it. A double re-release rather than compilation.

Solomun, edm stuff. Finding edm matches LV. In my mind.

Tried Scott Walker but other than his old show tunes, he is out of place here. Had he continued his mid-career trajectory he might have ended up here supporting Rich Little.

Off-topic, one casino is boasting a one-month engagement for “The Piano Men.” Elton, Billy Joel (obviously)...and Little Richard. All 86 years of him.

I would probably be alone in thinking Richard is levels above the other two hacks in importance and brilliance, but I am counting on Sneak for support.

I think you take Richard’s piano away and you have a defining singer, on the way to James Brown. His “flamboyance” conceals his importance.

Yeah, I think it would be impossible to overstate his importance (or quality).

 

I'm going to post this link from the mid-'60s, because (a) most people don't know Little Richard was still great then, or (b) that Richard originated this song, or (c ) that for all the fame of many of the covers, Richard's original version blows them all away:
