Suddenly it is hazy mid-summer complete with flies and sweaty heat.
Whatever happened to those lovely warm, fresh air days of early
summer - oh yes, that's right. It rained. However, the moon rising
from the sea at Aldeburgh was pretty impressive.

Brooke's Waltz - Don Ross
The son of a Scottish immigrant father and a Mi'kmaq aboriginal
mother, Don was born in Montreal in 1960 into a musical family. He
first started experimenting with the solo possibilities of the
acoustic guitar at the age of eight. By age ten he was playing in
alternate tunings and exploring "fingerstyle" technique, a right
hand discipline similar to classical guitar playing. Preferring to
write original music and develop a personal style, Don's
self-taught journey on the instrument has encouraged him to follow
his musical intuition. The result is an unclassifiable musical
style that borrows from jazz, folk, rock and classical music. When
asked, Don usually pigeonholes his music as "Heavy Wood"!
When things go wrong … and they get put right it's almost better
than them not going wrong in the first place! Alesis mixer,
Plantronics headset both fixed as things should be. Minimum
I had a Rick Fowler track lined up that Jeremy and I have been
enthusing about for the past couple of weeks, since his appearance
on SnC 124, then, as I was prepping, I came across this on the PMN.
It blew me totally away.
Feel So Much Better - Rick Fowler
Rick Fowler's musical honesty creates an unsurpassed morphic
resonance between him and his listeners. With a raw soul
reminiscent of early Johnny Winter and aural suspense akin to
Trower, Fowler delivers the energy, joy, anger and torment found in
the very best of blues-rock. Preacher is from his album Back on my
good foot available direct from his site or from CD Baby. Credit

BASS: Michael C. Steele
DRUMS: Gerry Hansen,
B3: Tim White,
2ND GUITAR: Jonathan Dorsey
RESONATOR: Michael C. Steele
BG VOCS: Sherry Joyce, Michael C. Steele
The next track has lots of reference to the sounds of Marley when I
was with the band clavinet through wah-wah and a clear nod in the
direction of session maestro Wayne Perkins
for his transforming guitar
breaks on the Catch a Fire
album which I think very cleverly made the Marley reggae
breakthrough possible with a rather jaded European audience.

Valse Chromatique - Nico Spahni
Prematurely born on a cold yet allegedly sunny November morning in
1972, the artist took to shaking his baby shaker at an early age
and has been dabbling in manifold music styles, ranging from
ambient electronica and experimental improvisation to music for
film and contemporary dance, ever since. More music and videos can
be found at www.myspace.com/nicospahni
Call me Moon - Sputnik has Crashed
(over a field of virgins)
Prozac for masses
premier album de Sputnik has crashed (over a field of virgins). Ce
avant tout un projet, une ébauche, juste pour me mettre le pied à
l'étrier et me forcer à réaliser des productions plus propres.
Prozac for masses
initialement publié avec 3 morceaux, mais il donnera le jour à une
nouvelle tentative, comprenant notamment les mêmes morceaux mais
retravaillés plus tard.
Call me moon
est un titre
qui fait honneur à une charmante jeune fille qui m'a ému bien que
je ne l'ai jamais rencontrée (ça arrive).
Did you hear PC Podcast this week. Oh, Mr Cogle, the most
entertaining first few minutes of PC Podcast I've heard in ages!
Poor old Codger seemed to be rather tired and emotional.
