Music from Brighton here in the UK, California, Niort in France,
Norway, Poland, Philadelphia and New York … I thought, then a very
late change to the running order (during the show) made a complete
mess of my predictions! Been prepping the show early this week
knowing that today was going to be a high pressure day. Still
finished after midnight because of a thunderstorm that screwed up
internet connection. Never mind, I think the show is worth it.

Furious new addition to the Brighton Post Hardcore Artrock scene.
Forming in the latter part of 2006.
Elliot Richards - Vocals and Guitar

The Moon is Torn - The Simple
Things (San Francisco, CA, USA)
Paying more attention to the space between the notes than the notes
themselves, San Francisco-based trio The Simple Things pursues the
art of musical simplicity, with well thought-out arrangements,
minimalist instrumentation, and kite-string melodies. Dreamy and
raw, ethereal and intense, The Simple Things' music represents the
meeting place of understated virtuosity, sublime songwriting, and
guts. Featuring the powerful vocals of Kaitlin McGaw, melodic bass
by Raymond Ruiz, and virtuosity on the piano from Michael Gallant.
The Simple Things invite you to close your eyes, visualize the
images, and enjoy.
Strange overtones - Brian Eno and
A departure from the usual policy of not playing established
artists. These guys are interesting enough to deserve an exception.
Their first collaboration since the pair's My Life in the Bush of Ghosts (1981).
There's a free download track available now - just go to

From David's blog:
Dubbin'high - Oooh !!!
"Today, a free track is available
from the upcoming record that I did with Brian Eno. I'm
hoping that folks will be pleasantly surprised at the direction
we've taken and the final result. Since it's only one song, it may
give a skewed taste of the record, but many told me it's their
favorite track — I guess we'll see.
I'm also wondering whether the web-curious will allow news of the
album to spread more or less by itself. In the past, I might have
undertaken all kinds of expensive marketing plans to prepare for a
record release: there would be a teaser, live shows, posters,
magazine ads, interviews, and advance CDs sent to writers and
reviewers. We've done a few interviews, but that's about it. It
will be interesting to see if audiences find out about this song —
and the record — without all those marketing techniques, and solely
through Internet word-of-mouth."

better sense of irony.

some of the classic names in rock and pop - R.E.M., Saran

few - and who recently toured the world with Cyndi Lauper, Bonet is
