    you know i never heard word up until this august?
    i was at a free party on raithlin island off the coast of northern island and as i was looking for whoever had the weed i walked past a rig that was blaring it
    i was fairly ambushed by the funk
    what a song!
    i initially thought it was prince
    no idea how i managed to avoid it until the age of 22...

    ... just got a parcel of newly purchased cd's today and give to all a (undeep) listen all the day while mostly cleaning the house and cooking, in this order:

    virgin prunes - a new form of beauty
    king tubby - in fine style
    gorguts - obscura
    indiepop vol.1 (rough trade shop aa.vv.)
    jah wobble - i could have been a contender
    alice coltrane - lord of lord

    about 10 hours of background music!!! (will give a deep listen in the next days...)

    Francesco, I'm jealous of you hearing "Sleep Fantasy Dream" for the first time (if it is)

    Yes is the firt time i listened to Virgin Prunes, it's not like "a new form of beauty" was so easily available before this reissue, and i should say i'm amazed, like, all these (too much!) years of beeing a fan of post punk and Coil and various industrial esoterica and i never have a chance to listen to them! Sleep Fantasy Dream is incredible but so also Come to Daddy, all the (double) CD is amazing really. Now i wonder if to buy other reissues ("if i die i die" for example)... probably yes (and i have right now a "must buy" list that is putting me in total poverty....)
    the alice coltrane "lord of lord" is another masterpiece but "friendly galaxy" and "universal consciousness" are probably superior.
    still not know what to think of the Jah Wobble 3cd set. on the good news is was not to expensive at all, then he his my favorite bass player (and Keith Levine is my favorite guitar player...) for his work in PIL and ORB Blue Room (also in Primal Scream Screamadelica Higher DUB Symphony). I was maybe hoping more of things like the collaborations with Czukay and Liebezeit, but mostly is bland triphop, bland ambient dub (it is 90% track from the '90, indeed) and bland etnofusion... maybe it will grow on me.
    The Indiepop 01 compilation from Rough Trade/Mute look gorgeus, i loved their previous Post Punk/Rock'n'Roll/country/electronica compilations: not perfect neither "definitive", but full of extraordinary tracks (and some dull ones...). This kind of compilation needs time to be unfolded., but i was shocked to hear the early single of My Bloody Valentine "paint a rainbow": fantastic, but the sound not like MBV you know, they sound so young and naive.


    ciao da francesco.

    greetings from la tim buckley, great but i'm suspicious of him very much.
    mark van hoen , the warmth inside you, a good if not groundbreaking new cd from the guy behind locust
    spit kode 9 and daddie g- ace angry dubstep with basic channelisms and refried lyrics from welcome to the terrordome
    the au harem d'archimede ricardo villalobos, darker and more abstract second album from this guy, not sure what to make of it yet.
    exotic moog, martin denny, a fantastic moog album, really great, puts me in a good mood.

    Why is that? I like "Greetings" a lot, as well as a more acoustic/folksy comp I have, but picked up some others recently that seem a bit iffy ("Goodbye and Hello").
