Just a short note (thank you very much, Matt Finish) to let you know that
the transcription of John Broughton's radio interview with GREG QUILL is now
up on the site. Just follow the Interviews link on the main menu and you'll
find it. I hope you enjoy it - John did a great job and it's a great read
IMHO - and many thanks to him for letting us put it up on MILESAGO.
To digress: the new XTC album "Wasp Star (Apple Venus Vol. 2)" has just been
released locally and comes HIGHLY recommended. It's REALLY REALLY good.
While I was at Redeye picking that up, I sifted through their Oz music racks
and found some nifty Vicious Sloth reissues - Melissa's "Midnight
Trampoline" and Galadriel's self-titled album! Yum.
Also spotted an interesting EMI France 2CD compilation of Axiom and
Mississippi tracks, under the banner "LRB - The Early Days" (or something
like that). Looks like a combo of tracks from Mississippi and the two Axiom
albums, but not sure how complete it is. Had all the usual suspects like
'Kings Of The World' and 'Little Ray of Sunshine' but lots of others too.
Unfortunately it was $45 and I had already spent my allowance. Bummer.
EXCELLENT bit of news just to hand: Mick Fettes has kindly put me in touch
with bandmates Brendan Mason and Kerry McKenna, and I'll be interrogating
them soon. (I bet they can't wait!) hahah. BUT - I'm really excited to
relate Mick and Brendan have confirmed the existence of a more-or-less
complete demo of their fabled "Brave New World" project!! This was, of
course, the concept work they developed during '74 with David ("Journey to
the Centre of the Earth") Measham, which never came to fruition. Equally
exciting is today's news from Mick that there may well be some surviving
tapes of BNW material which they cut in Perth in 1974 with the ABC! More on
Finally - Mr Glass, I recently picked that Canetaod compilation with the
18CQ tracks, and I have to agree with you that they still sound pretty damn
good. It's really interesting to compare the 18CQ and Cam-Pact versions of
'Drawing Room', and I'm intruiged by "Distant Relative" (which I now realise
is where some of the music on "Approximately Panther" comes from). What IS
that one about?
Have a good weekend!
