My Bloody Valentine are good, they had an important impact on shoegaze and I guess alternative rock too. Have you heard Loveless?  :)

Loveless is a great album - probably my most played by MBV.
The compilation album I was playing yesterday is quite a bit different to Loveless but still a great record :)
I like old music :)

The Residents - Fingerprince



I listened to like 5 hours of Xenakis this morning + all of the Bartok quartets + several other things, then composed 20 bars for the String Quintet I'm composing.

Now putting this album on now, feels so refreshing and relaxing (happy sigh)  8)

Been years since I last heard this, still a brilliant concept album/rock opera:

Horsell Common and the Heat Ray and The Spirit of Man have definitely seeped deeply into my subconsciousness, it's a "masterpiece" if I dare say. But I don't care for the remakes or stage productions etc.  :)

An unbelievably beautiful and contemplative album, I strongly recommend it to any of our new age/ambient fans here: (I know Conor may love it)

Now enjoying the great new remix of this classic album, by Steven Wilson. It's available on Spotify if you want to check it out. Clearer, more relaxed sound.

What can I say, I'm in love with Sandy Denny's voice. Everything she does is magic  :D
