i had their discography playing on shuffle the whole day.
i found out about them only recently while reading 30 Essential Post-Rock Songs - Bark Psychosis were mentioned in the comments as one of the bands that should have been included, but wasn't, because the author didn't feel like it. duh.

Crow voice outside my window...
"I then enhanced the conversation by asking him a historical question: how he decided to record ''There's a Flaw in My Flue,'' one of my favorites among his romantic ballads, whose lyrics, in part, go like this:
Your lovely face in my fireplace, was all that I saw
But now it won't draw, 'cause my flue has a flaw.
From every beautiful ember a memory arose,
Now I try to remember and smoke gets in my nose ...
Frank liked the question and said he'd heard the song on Bing Crosby's Kraft Music Hall radio show, a segment called ''The Flop Parade,'' and he thought it was funny; what's more Bing had never recorded it. So Frank - who felt that the executives at his record company never really listened to his songs - wanted to make that point; and he asked Nelson Riddle to orchestrate ''Flue'' for an opening slot in an upcoming record.
''When they played it,'' Frank said, ''one of the record company guys says to me, 'What is this?' and I said, 'It's a love song.' I said, 'There's a flaw in my flue, beautiful.' '' And so it flawlessly became, and Frank made his point doubly, with a leg pull that stands as a comic gem.

Johannes Brahms 〜 Piano Concerto No. II (Op. 83)
One of my favourite pieces; performed by Boris Berezovsky (Бори́с Вади́мович Березо́вский). I do recommend all of his recordings.
Edit: You should also check out Daniil Trifonov's work (Дании́л Оле́гович Три́фонов).
Frampton Comes Alive. Got the volume turned up for this one.
Takes me back.
April Wine - "Hard Times"
Time to move on!#
