Progressive Canon # 55 - Donald Singleton's Delirium

Wot a nutter eh? But there's no denying the exquisite musicality he brought to the Telford scene with his eponymous debut. Underrated? Undeniably.

His foxy carpet-munching sister sung backing vocals on "The Frustration of the Cerne Abbas Giant (pt3, movement 2)", right?

That'll have been Louetta. Amazing chick. Fired up like a hot vacuum cleaner of love. Just the ticket.

Scrumpet's micro-brewery in Telford named a Pale Ale after them.

It tasted shite.

It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

You think? For christ's sake Keith he clipped off the last 25 seconds of Fairy's Promenade. No, Pablo LeFarage is helming this one with 5.1 from the maestro himself, Eric Antrobus.

Oh good, their job on Beelzebubble's Lore of Ancient Khans was splendid. They got the crumhorns sounding really tentacular.

Wasn't Schleiger's act done on the behest of the last dying wishes of Woody Anderson- Hermione, who had of course originally intended it as a Mahler tribute? I ask because you are more of an expert of this part of their canon than I (as you know I've always been more of a tepid geometric moth man myself).
You are right about Antrobus. They say the man has ears for hands.

No.

Indeed, that's why he need Lefarage's assistance - he can't move the faders without deafening himself, poor bastard :(

Well, that's fine if you want your crumhorn sounding tentacular. I'd say that sound suits the sackbutt better, as heard on Valley of Stumps, for example.
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

Just revisiting this after it's appearance on Walk In My Shadow's cup list (thanks Yves but a link may have allowed it's majesty to be sampled more readily).

Dreadfully robust my dears, dreadfully robust.

I've just come back from an evening at Don's. It was spellbinding. Never let it be said he's mellowed since his operation. He's still as inspirationally disrespectful towards the pathetically outmoded notions of tone, melody, rhythm or elegance as ever. Indeed, this was a feature comment of the audience, who were so enraptured as to react with direct, and indeed physical, appreciation of the Don's solos. We will rarely see the likes again in the Auchterarder bowling club.
