Last night's listening:


Both completely outstanding. Cliff Martinez's score for The Neon Demon (which i cannot wait to see) is a real delight for anyone enamoured with analogue synths (without resorting to cliché), while the Kayo Dot i'm still struggling to get my head around - post rock has practically never been so post.

Technopicker - Adrian Legg.



1981? 1982? Or 1983?  I was invited to a pub where Adrian Legg was demoing Ovation guitars. My reward was a single malt and cascades of notes, including those formed by having his guitar fitted witn banjo tuners which employed stops - so allowing all manner of alternate tunings and pseudo pedal steel riffs in the middle of a piece. All of this was punctuated by the patter and an occasional dusting of talcum powder on his hands. It's still one of my favourite live music experiences.
e: also, he smoked a pipe.  ;D

Mahler, you ought to go see it.
he was as f*cked-up as you are."

Van Dyke Parks & Brian Wilson: Orange Crate Art.



"From the vine of a vintage cru
Comes the wine of this rendezvous
Room for two in view of Sonoma
Back when Ramona had heart
Memories of her orange crate art"

MN Dave got me hooked on Moon Hooch last year and I still can't stop playing this particular video.

Is the material on Waiting for a Dancer in a similar vein to the earlier stuff?
