Broad church but what an extraordinary voice. I should play it more often.

An interesting album:

Tetsu to replace the departed Fraser hence lacking the latter's, in particular, composing skills
Rabbit (and on occasions Paul) on keyboards to supplement and ailing and very drugged up Koss

A surprisingly good album

2nd solo album from Yogi Lang, front man for RPWL a long running German prog band.

I like them and him a fair bit but he sounds ridiculously like Dave Gilmour, so much so it’s a bit of a turn-off tbh.

Didn’t they start off as a Floyd tribute band? I had CDRs of a couple of RPWL albums and they were better than MLOR and DBell!
The house that Clete’s musician friend had told him about was a sun-faded pink art deco place stuck back in a cove where a desiccated shrimp boat lay on its side in a slough overgrown with vines and palm and persimmon trees.

God, I struggle with this album. I can appreciate it, but after two or three tracks on the run, that's my lot for 6 months

Today’s consumption....

Led Zeppelin - Houses of The Holy

Image

The Sountrack of Our Lives - Origin Vol 1

Haven’t played this for years - something of the Foo Fighters about them.

Image

Fleetwood Mac Live

A splendid album, apart from the 2 Buckingham manic w4nkfest tracks. But all was forgiven for his wonderful guitar on I’m So Afraid.

Three very decent albums although I really disliked and still really dislike The Crunge. What were they thinking?

Seems an appropriate time to give this another listen as it's been under discussion - haven't heard it for a while.


This up next - 2nd favourite to Argus.

sigh. you know how i feel about this album... me and reap.

reap corner!

i must share. a few days ago, i had a dream that reap, attila, the beezle and i were being forced to move out of our house. but our house was full of closets/shelves/drawers of alll manner of weird crap: hundreds of decks of cards. candles. spoons. (??) i do mean hundreds. i said, "reap, there is no way we can clear all this shit out in time. our landlord's gonna sue us!"

reap gives me this wicked grin and replies, "not if we play zep."

mwhaha. i swear. i was laughin so hard in the dream i woke myself up.

ya.
