Why Aren't You Listening?

My Life in the Bush of Ghosts - David Byrne & Brian Eno

Drawing comparisons with Der Ost is Rot or Movies by Holger Czukay (who, incidentally, was using samples in his work a good three to four years earlier) is an interesting game.

Lalo Schifrin - Marquis de Sade

The album didn't sell well and I can't imagine that the ridiculous title helped any.

Associates, Fourth Drawer Down

Oh, one more thing; the cover's a new romantic belter, with the two lads wearing futuristic swim suits at Dundee's local swimming baths.

Henry Flynt - Graduation

As with bands such as Can, the influences are controlled and are used to create something genuinely new – it is the difference between eating a good stew and taking a nibble of all of the ingredients one at a time. In other words, it is all the difference.

Califone - Quicksand/Cradlesnakes + Heron King Blues

So how would you describe Califone's music?

Spacemen 3 - Playing With Fire

Not anywhere near as celebrated as it should be.

Human League - Reproduction (1979)

I played this to a friend from Sheffield and made the comment that “they took themselves very seriously”. “Well”, he exclaimed indignantly “they ‘ad to, they were from Sheffield.


Pale Saints -The Comforts of Madness

What, oh what, happened to the Pale Saints?

The Pretty Things - SF Sorrow

There is a lot of magic and mystery surrounding SF Sorrow

The Family of God - The Family of God

Obviously a lot of love and attention had gone into this.
