Kylie again. Sorry, folks. I don't really understand it... always hated disco in the 70's but I really enjoy Kylie Minogue's albums. Fever, Light Years, and Body Language.

I do have to mention that the bass output on the M40s is very impressive.

Before that -- Triumvirat - Old Loves Die Hard, and Keith Jarrett -- Always Let Me Go. Tried to find Keith's "the Koln Concert" a couple of years ago with no luck -- nobody had ever heard of it -- but now it seems to be everywhere. Just hit "submit" on Amazon, along with Timewind (Klaus Schulze) and De Stijle (White Stripes).

In reply to:

Oh and "careful with that Jack"




Notice I did not post yesterday (Saturday). Spent the morning in the privy and early afternoon guzzling about 3 gallons of water. Got hydrated and stable just in time to watch my beloved UO lay a Grade A beat-down on the the hated flea-infested buck-toothed Rodents 56-14. Ah, revenge is a dish best served with a sledgehammer! I finally took a hair 'o the dog that bit me at halftime to get more into the festivities with the fellas. Asleep by 9. Dreams of the Fiesta Bowl dancing in my head.

Hehe. Tony Levin's 8-string bass on PG's "Sledgehammer" kicks booty! Actually, I don't know if he was playing an 8 string or was using an Octaver or similar device like Pino Palladino on Pete Townshends "Give Blood" from "White City."

That is funny about Kylie John....

I work with a guy that is around 45, and he has become totally obsessed with Kylie. He has pictures on his wall of her, and probably owns every CD and DVD she has out.

He even told his wife that she is his second wife. He has flipped his lid. I'm really worried some day he won't show up for work, and that night on the nightly news I'll see a storty about some psycho stalker outside of her home in the outback.

When I get my theater finally completed, he thinks my first showing is going to be his Kylie DVD's, I don't think so....

LOL !!

I have the KylieFever DVD (a recent concert in Manchester) and can't really say it's all that good... but there is something compelling about her. She's cute... and she... um... acts smart...

Anyways, ran out of Kylie so now King Crimson - Red. Starless just never loses its appeal.

Back in the 80s we had a local group named FM, which depending on who you talked to was either two great musicians (Cameron Hawkins and Nash the Slash) saddled with an awfully un-musical drummer (Martin Deller), or a supergroup anchored by a wonderful drummer (Martin Deller) along with a couple of Toronto studio musicians (Cam and Nash).

I fall into the first camp. When I was going to university, we used to hang out at the bar where FM was the house band. They normally closed with their rendition of Starless. I don't know how many people know the song, but Bill Bruford always managed to use occasional percussion hits to really flesh out the song -- always off the beat, always unexpected, more like putting makeup on a beatiful girl than the normal "banging away in the background" drumming.

Well, Marty the FM drummer just didn't have that gift. He had a big collection of "things" hanging from a rail in front of his drum kit and used to bang away on them during the long bass run in the middle of Starless where Wetton is carrying the song. Martin would bang away on this collection of junk during the most beautiful parts of the song, ruining it completely. One of his "things" looked like a steel lightning bolt but made this awful sound like a cross between a cowbell and a "moooooo". About 30 seconds into the best part of Starless.... "Moooooooo". Like fingernails on a blackboard.

After the performance, Nash stormed off stage, sat down at our table (we were a bunch of Elec Eng students and designed some of Nash's effect boxes), sat down at our table, poured a beer from our pitcher and just fumed for a minute. Finally he spoke....

"Why... why, of all things, did he have to play THAT ???".

Anyways, 20 years later Marty is out of the business but Nash is still making albums. Figures.
