I changed jobs at the end of last month. It’s been a really busy time for me. Learning a whole new office etc. And very soon, I will be preparing to sell at the
So, a natural pause, as it were. My busy life pauses for changes. So, in the interval, a brief silence followed by…
I really like our band’s new album. It’s an instrumental album. We worked on it over three long weekend sessions over the last 5 years. The results of our labor will be released by Mind’s Ear / Imgrat shortly. I will advise. We haven’t titled it yet.
After buying a few British music magazines, last night, I played a recently re-mastered CD of Gong “Magick Brother”. I think there was an article about Gong in Uncut Magazine (#149, October 2009). It’s the most coherent I’ve ever read of Daevid Allen being interviewed. Overall, a pretty good issue. I also read about Dr. Feelgood, Kraftwerk and The Who.

But I guess this is when the ‘backlash’ set in, against the Brothers Gibb. Listening fresh to this title, I rather enjoyed the track “Living Together” – where they even dropped the falsetto voices!
