    ah @blenkinsopthebrave – good times indeed!
    Love kd lang (though don’t listen to her enough – or maybe I just don’t indulge on a rich wine too often!)

    which made me find another beautiful voice…

    hello all – long time reader seldom (recently) poster….

    here’s something to start us off in terms of spooky stuff for Halloween.
    Maybe I should’ve started with something shorter and sillier but…

    hey ho.

    or…
    Hey whoooooooooo….

    hi all,

    just wanted to post something here which:
    – wasn’t because anyone died

    … erm that was it.

    When the Doctor returns, I’m sure she’ll inspire better and more relevant music

    Just read the same article about Dan Martin.
    So sad for him to die so young.

    My heart goes out to his loved ones, as well as those his passion and enthusiasm touched.

    Peter Green is someone who I don’t know enough about.

    Realising that there are a multitude of artists who held him in high regard, it just makes me realise I have to visit his work.

    BB King said generous things about his tone which is kinda incredible and though I don’t know what BB King was responding to, here is Peter Green…[Read more]

    So Happy 4th of July.

    I watched the Wattstax doc recently and so am on a bit of a funk thang.

    This is just fun (and I seem to recognise lines and samples from it maybe)

    simply enjoy!

  • Hi @blenkinsopthebrave – yes I believe I did but it was a while ago.

    Did I not already mention them and Picard and thank you for the advice??

    Blimey – I’m bad if not.
    Now then, I’d have to dig out my notes about the episodes though (and with all the pre-moving malarky I might’ve ermmm… ‘cleaned them up’)

    :¬o

    So, been watching Devs (an Alex Garland TV series).

    Kinda ‘cold’ in a way, but also austere/ beautiful/ elegant.

    Maybe elegant is what he was aiming at.
    No spoilers from me, but overall I enjoyed it – not “oh my gawd you must watch this!” but still, glad I saw it.

    But here’s a couple of tracks from it/ that made me think ‘ooh, is…[Read more]

    @Missy

    I am so sorry for your loss.
    What you recognised in Moffat’s words (a line I hadn’t remembered) are spot on.

    Please take care – you know far more than I will ever know about loss.
    My brother (always far wiser than I) warned me about the waves after losing someone.

    I’ll never forget that forewarning, nor be able to thank him enough.

    Take care.

    @thane16
    That is an awesome live track by Kraftwerk.
    So rhythmic, dancey, pulsating yet controlled.
    And with all that, its not a cold, robotic sound – there’s a ton of warmth in it.

    wow.

    and I’ve never heard of or any Hugh Le Caine.
    And yes its obvious that the sounds are similar (especially in this track). But I love how Kraftwerk brought a……[Read more]

    hey @thane16 old and young – I’m doing well thanks.

    And that’s quite enough about me!

    ;¬)

    Here’s something I found simply by searching my iTunes for relevant words…

    kinda pretty (not their best evah etc etc, but pretty is quite ok right now).

    {sigh}

    Little Richard has died.

    I tend to only embed one song even if I link to several.
    Not this time.
    Here’s three.

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    @craig – I just saw the news and logged in to say something similar.

    Massively influential.

    I first heard Kraftwerk (maybe like many in UK) from watching a Tomorrow’s World (popular technology/ culture programme).

    Now this is insane – if the video title is to be believed I was 4 when I saw this but I…[Read more]

    @craig

    ah hell.

    This was the first song that sprang to mind.

    I know that Golden Brown is more famous (and possibly even had more of his involvement in the core of the songwriting).
    Hell, we even had the single.
    But the urgency and anger and fuck-you of Something Better Change just seems… well,…[Read more]

    @thane16 – so good to hear from you thane-the-elder.

    Thane-the-younger’s hunt for work can be hard on the soul.
    I’ve recently gone through a long bout of not having work.
    I was fine, but there were quite a few “nah’s” to my CV that I thought “hold on, I really do know what you need and reckon I could do that”.

    Luckily I’ve found something now…[Read more]

    Hi @jabru

    Thank you so much for sharing this.
    I know it may sound blasphemous, but I think I prefer your own mixes!

    I really liked the Dub version (I don’t think of myself as a dub-head or anything, but I liked the contrast of ‘bottom’ as well as the sharper clicks and shimmers). The more D&B one too.

    But kudos to you for getting the remix as…[Read more]

    @missrori
    In many ways you’re right.
    Life isn’t ‘fair’.

    y’know, that’s kinda about it.
    It ain’t.

    There are wiser folks than I who have built on the wisdom of people over millennia, so I’ll let people that understand that wisdom share it.

    Me?
    Life ain’t fair. I try to roll with the punches.
    The ones that hurt, hurt.
    I don’t think I ‘learn’…[Read more]

    Hi @all

    I now realise we watched this years ago!
    [gulp – where does the time go??!!??]

    I stumbled across this podcast a week or two ago.

    Its an easy-going listen.
    There’s some nice mentions on the writing (Moffat / Gatiss are massive fans of Neale), as well as where Neale’s character names may have come from, but honestly some of the insights…[Read more]

  • oh – and a funny thing about the various holograms of Capt. Rios.
    Not the wandering accents {the Oirish one was… ahem} but I had an idea a couple of years ago that AI assistants like Alexa etc will develop different ‘personalities’ (voices) to answer different questions. Basically in same way that you ask different friends on different topics…[Read more]
