shopping lists, etc.
- yes, please if you are happy to spend more this week on records than the
average annual recording budget, some description wouldn't go astray.
Hey (in reply to someone) I too discovered music when I was 3 or 4...
"dance macabre" [by ?] from the soundtrack to [walt disney's] Fantasia was
pretty amazing. Within a year my mum bought W. Carlos's Switched On Bach
(early analogue synth lp, done before they were triggered by keyboards),
the Australian cast recording of Hair (1969) and a compilation called The
Essential Beatles, which I'm sure needs no introduction...
(and in reply to someone else) that's a bit rich someone from the J&MC
criticizing Einsturzende Neubauten for losing their edge ... I'd like to
have discovered them with a similar shock (EN, I mean: I really wish I'd
never heard the J&Mchain) but in this country they were overnight radio
stars on account of being championed by the Birthday Party... but I do
have similar recollection of first hearing -their- self-titled lp (not the
first time I'd heard the group exactly, but...) and the intro to Mr
Clarinet (an old farfisa or something plays a flat fifth or two then a
sortof rockabilly beat then "weird pop song"..) has a similar effect on me
sorry, I'm taking my own request for description too seriously...
does anyone know: is it true that's Oval doing the soundtrack to a tv ad
for Calvin Klein perfume? This was pointed out to me some weeks ago, but
no-one I know seems to be sure. I'm just discovering them this week (moved
house) and it's very soothing stuff, no driving beat or words if anyone's
wondering. Good if you can't afford to be distracted by such things, but
need something to quiet the automatic beat/word generator in your head
