I discovered this through a stupid quiz on FB ('Ikea or Death' Embarassed ), but I absolutely love it. I seem to be the only one; even my 16 yo, who's a big death metal fan, doesn't like it *sighs*

Anyway, for those willing to give it a go, the mighty Nortt;

It helps if you don't think of it as music, as such, more like aural sculpture Very Happy

I would love to listen to this in the Mark Rothko room at Tate Modern.

I was looking through iPlayer for something to watch or listen to, and came across a Paul McCartney concert. I thought "maybe", and looked on.

And found this old radio stuff:


Beatles at the BBC

A rare chance to hear the Beatles as BBC audiences would have originally encountered them.

This programme compiles extracts from "Pop Go The Beatles" (July - September 1963), "Public Ear" (November 1963), "From Us To You" (March 1964) "The Alan Freeman Show" (July 1964), and "Saturday Club" (November 1964) to create a revealing portrait of how British audiences would have originally heard the Beatles, the way they presented themselves and the impressions that they left.

In addition to songs recorded in BBC studios, the programme also contains interviews with the Fab Four and a glimpse behind the scenes as they attempt to record "I Feel Fine" for a Saturday Club session.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b03h4226/Beatles_at_the_BBC/

Duration 57 minutes Available until 11:02PM Thu, 21 Nov 2013

All the freshness and fun of of the early Beatles, including some things that never made it to vinyl.

Enjoy!

More iPlayer stuff: sort of Music meets Forgotten History...
(Good time-lapse photography at the beginning.)


Queen Live In Budapest: Hungarian Rhapsody

In July 1986, as part of the Magic tour which, poignantly, was the last to feature Freddie Mercury, Queen played Hungary for the first time. With three years to go before the fall of the Berlin Wall, this was the largest concert ever staged at the Népstadion, Budapest, and the first western rock concert staged in a stadium behind the iron curtain.

The concert held such significance to the Hungarian authorities that an unprecedented collaboration of Hungary's top film cameraman and technicians were formed to record it. Aside from depicting Queen's live performance, the film includes montages of highlights of the band's legendary visit and a unique insight into the Hungarian film making style adapted to western rock music.

Staged for 80,000 ecstatic fans, the concert set includes favourite hits like Bohemian Rhapsody, Crazy Little Thing Called Love and I Want To Break Free.

Duration 95 minutes - Available until 12:29AM Sun, 24 Nov 2013

Gesaffelstein: Aleph. Spare, driving techno album which makes me wonder if I should be a hipster for listening to it, but it's damn good nonetheless. I tried to link to the video on YouTube video of Pursuit but it's rude so you have to sign in to see it. Top tune, though.

Sounds more like doorbells than Christmas bells, but thanks anyway. The video's a bit of freaky fun too (though shouldn't they be taking a mince pie out of the oven instead of a treacle tart?).

The opening track on the new album by folk singer Lisa Knapp.

One for Rynner I think!

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards plaque for Dartford station

A chance encounter on a railway station platform in Kent, without which the Rolling Stones might never have existed, is to be marked with a plaque.
Mick Jagger and Keith Richards had their first proper meeting at Dartford station on 17 October 1961.
The teenagers recognised each other as they had both gone to Wentworth Primary School in the town, with Jagger then going on to study at Dartford Grammar.

Dartford council leader Jeremy Kite said the town was proud of the link.
The two musicians met on platform two - Richards was on his way to Sidcup Art College, carrying his hollow-bodied Höfner cutaway electric guitar, while Jagger was travelling to the London School of Economics and holding some of his prized blues records.
"Fate was sealed and they started talking about playing their music together," Mr Kite said.
"They went off and recruited Brian Jones next, and the rest is history," he added.

The Rolling Stones formed in 1962, and went on to become one of the most successful, influential and enduring rock 'n' roll bands in the history of music.
Mr Kite said the heritage blue plaque at the station would remind people of the historic moment.

Hmmph! Threads like Dumb cops or Stupid Rules could be outdated if we get more examples of common sense like this:

Piano-playing policeman praised in Czech Republic

A Czech police officer who was filmed playing a piano while on duty has been lauded by the chief of police for boosting the force's image.
A 30-second mobile phone video of the performance has been watched nearly 800,000 times on YouTube.
The policeman had taken a break to sit down at one of the pianos placed around central Prague for public use.
Still wearing his bright green reflective vest, he rattled off a few bars of a South Korean composition.

Police chief Martin Cervicek said the clip of the officer playing River Flows In You, by the South Korean composer Yiruma, had done more to improve the image of the force than anything he himself would ever achieve.

The young traffic policeman only joined the force six weeks ago but it is fair to say he is now the most famous officer in the Czech Republic, the BBC's Rob Cameron reports from Prague.

Mr Cervicek said he had spoken to the officer, whose name has not been released, and wished him the same success in his police career.
A superior had spoken to the new recruit about what he could and could not do on duty, he added, but the piano-playing policeman was not formally disciplined

(But the vest is standard hi-vis yellow, not green!)

I am a tourist and Travelling, gaming and play video games are my hobbies. I love pop music and like to prefer to listen; all the songs by Michael Jackson during travel. The Blank or White and the Man in the Mirror are my favorite song.

I'm having a Sabbath-fest this week to prepare for the homecoming Birmingham gig on Friday.

"War Pigs" is the perfect driving-to-work-on-a-Monday song.

Posted this elsewhere, but just had to do a review. I don't get out much these days.

Went into Amsterdam on Saturday night to see Ted Milton & Blurt. I go back a long way with this band, I remember them from when the original line-up of puppeteering poet, Ted, Jake Milton (Ted's brother) on drums and Pete Creese on guitar, were still practising back in Stroud (Glos.).

And, I went to see them at the Rock Garden, in London (I thought it was the Marquee, but Ted put me right). The line-up may have been different, but Blurt played after Nick Cave & the Birthday Party. The audience threw (plastic) glasses at Nick Cave & co., then Blurt came on and simply blew them away. That was back in the Eighties. Long time gone.

Anyway. Saturday night, Ted with the present line-up, Steve Eagles on guitar and Dave Aylward on drums, played the OCCII, in Amsterdam, alongside excellent sets from two local bands, Lifeless Past and Urban Grey, with Trish Trash DJing.

The OCCII is a former tram shed, that was taken over by squatters, years ago. It's now a local arts venue, at the very bottom of the Vondelpark. Condensation drips from metal fittings overhead in a very Cavern-like way. The bottled beer is cheap and the volunteers who run it, friendly. I'd recommend a visit if you're ever Amsterdam way.

A great gig. Blurt were brilliant. An excellent set. Steve and Dave are worthy successors to Pete and Jake, playing a very tight, yet free, accompaniment to Ted's noodling, squirting, alto-sax and ranty, skalding, vocals. Minimalist poetic rant, yet stuff that you can dance to.

Blurt have been doing a mini-European tour-ette, to promote their new single.

Blurt - Let Them Be: http://youtu.be/sb4i3XNxsys yeay yeay yeay

I had a brilliant evening. It took me the rest of the night to get home, after the direct trains had stopped, but totally worth it.
Cycling around Amsterdam at half past three in the morning, at my age... am I mad?
