I just watched 'Lost in Translation' which included 'Just like Honey' in the soundtrack and inspired me to dig out my old copy of Jesus and Mary Chains 'Psycho Candy' album. I have no idea why this has been unplayed for so long, beautiful melodies wrapped up in a huge wash of sound and understated vocals. Great music.

At the moment I am cycling through my new stash (about 35 new records) mostly 80s new wave, but some 70s rock peppered in the mix, and a bit of 60s british invasion. Really enjoying the Elvis Costello and the kinks. Plus a few Velvet Underground albums managed to sneak they're way from the record shelf onto my table.

the church!

The Church - The Church

Just looking through the c's and rediscovered this from 82. Got it originally for 'the unguarded moment' - great riff, heard once on the radio. Then the whole album became a favourite. Sounds even better now. 60's TD150 playing 80's vinyl in 2004. Who'd a thought it?

Mahlers Fifth

Postby Ambient Housewife » 11 Mar 2004 20:44

With Herb von K on DG, not too bad but not as good as the Decca Solti second I listened to yesterday. We have just moved, and so glad to finally get the TT up and running!

"Wouldn't you just die without Mahler"


Cheers

Today's charity shop finds:

Another Green World - Brian Eno (near mint :D )

The Astrud Gilberto Album - Astrud Gilberto (extremely scratched, music sounds great, but the crackling is louder! It sounds as if Astrud was frying bacon during the session!! :roll: )

Total cost: £1.50 :shock:

Also enjoying: The Flat Earth - Thomas Dolby

Dave Brubeck

Postby JaS » 06 May 2004 19:51

I just discovered Dave Brubeck; well sort of.

The minute I heard the album 'Time Out' I realised that I was already a fan! The whole album was just so familiar even to a certified member of the 'rave' generation, and the influences of one of my old favourites the Penguin Cafe Orchestra suddenly became all too obvious..

To Brubeck fans it might seem I'm a little late on the bandwagon but imagine how I feel hearing it properly for the first time :) Great stuff!

JaS

Hey! I bought that last week from Oxfam! (one of my favourite record shops :wink: ) It is indeed good although my knowledge of Jazz fits on a postage stamp!! :lol:

Anyway tonight I have been mostly listening to The Rapture, live in Manchester MDH -must check out their album. Their support band, The Futureheads, were cracking too. Nice lads to work with as well - that makes being a sound engineer easier! 8)

This week, after returning from working at Glastonbury, I have mostly been listening to errr, Kate Bush. :shock: I'm rapidly concluding that "Running up that hill" is one of my favourite tunes ever.

Also playing:
Can - Tago Mago
Propaganda - A Secret Wish

JaS, Cloudbursting is good, but reminds me too much of the Utah Saints who sampled it... :roll:

Anyway, today I have been mostly listening to Neil Young - Harvest, having found a tidy copy in my local s/h record emporium. 8)
