Re: What are you listening to right now ?

@SimonHoare - Great Slits song  smile

@dura - Cool. Nigel Blackwell is a bit of a songwriting genius (I'm not sure what bit) - my 5 year old son likes HMHB too - he's particularly keen on Shit Arm, Bad Tattoo, it was the bucketful of porridge that got him first but he found the idea of a 'shit arm' pretty funny too.
I grew up (mostly) in Birkenhead so the Probe shop was part of my musical education in the early 90s - the old shop on Button Street was brilliant - I was pretty disappointed when they had to move out of there, I thought it was part of some attempt to tidy up the more interesting parts of town for tourists or whatever ( they started calling that area 'The Cavern Quarter' or something), a bit like what they've done with Liverpool One recently. neutral

Anyway, now I'm listening to Never Mind The Ballots by Chumbawamba

Re: What are you listening to right now ?

LordStranger: Cool. Nigel is still in Birkenhead. Geoff is still around Liverpool. Probe Plus still only making money from HMHB alone. I'm a researcher interested in organizational creativity- working and becoming friends with Geoff was a method of research, and Probe is one of the sites in my research. Geoff is an absolute legend. Nigel too. Got the new album? Geoff is inspired recently. Still as energetic as he used to be; still as mad. Yeah, Liverpool is going through sanitization recently. Eric's Club has been cleaned up and commoditized. It's a load of rubbish. But there is still underground spaces- Don't Drop the Dumbells, and its reincarnation, Drop the Dumbells, is something I'm involved in around Liverpool.

I'm listening to the earliest example I've encountered of techno:

Can - Messer, Scissors, Fork And Light

Trousers - Mad Nellie Rides Again

Abbey Road, May 1977

http://www.andyleslie.com/Reboot/Trousers/Albums.htm

If you were old enough to go to the pub in the mid to late 70s and lived in the Walton-Weybridge-Esher area of NW Surrey in England then you might have seen Trousers performing in your local watering hole. They mainly played folk standards and their own humorous songs but they also threw in a few by Monty Python and other like-minded individuals. The songs are sometimes bawdy and a few of the comments to and from the audience are definitely NSFW. Great fun! I just can't believe that it's 35 years since I last saw them.

The link above gives MP3s of the live album they recorded at the Abbey Road Studios and a bootleg recording from the same period.

For anyone that's interested there is a little more of the back-story here http://www.andyleslie.com/Reboot/Trousers/index.htm


Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

Ivor Cutler - An Elpee And Two Epees

@dura - good stuff - I haven't got the new album yet, maybe I'll get it this week, I hear it's very good  smile . I hadn't heard about Don't drop the dumbells before (I'm a bit out of touch with what's going on in the Pool these days) - looks like there were some great happenings there, one or two familiar names / faces too - I used to slightly know Paul Tarpy (I'm not he'd remember me though) - he used to hang out with Max Zadow who I knew from Birkenhead. - Cool Can tune too!

@junkie - nice Delia Derbyshire clip - The original Dr Who theme still sounds amazing today - much better than the new version if you ask me - it must have been mind blowing back in '63.

The other day I told this female programmer that she was an instantiation of the Goddess class and that I admired her attributes. I thought she'd take this as a compliment but she just complained that I was treating her as an object.

Nice. People listening to that then had no idea they were listening to the dance music of the future. Well, sort of.

Re: What are you listening to right now ?

The17. I became a member on Lewes in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. It remains in memory much longer than a piece of recorded music.

Have a look:

http://www.the17.org/ or better: http://www.the17.org/home.php?lang=e

Edit: funny that Dobbie has Callenish Circle- when I was on Lewes it was the Callanish Stones, a gaelic stone circle, where the 'performance' was. I'm writing a paper about The17 and hope to have it published soon.
