Julian Cope - World Shut Your Mouth, Interpreter and the promo disc that came with Rome Wasn't Burned in a Day. WSYM sounded completely deranged whilst Interpreter sounded 12 years wiser, still slightly deranged but more enjoyably so! The promo disc is pretty good except perhaps The Sons of TC Lethbridge track for me. Should Geography teachers be anywhere near Rock N Roll?!!! That's a whole new debate. I suppose Cope was training to be one...

Edgar Broughton Band - S/T

Beta Band @ The House of the Blues

Terry Riley - Rainbow in Curved Air, Church of Anthrax (w/ John Cale)

Faith No More - Sol Invictus

Fridge - Early Recordings 96-98. Tasty.

De La Soul & The Anonymous Nobody. Didn't make much of an impression. Nor did Todd Rungren's A Wizard/A True Star.

Jon Brooks – Autres Directions. This is absolutely lovely, an Eno-esque environmental ambient album from the guy behind The Advisory Circle. The way he integrates field recordings from the French countryside into the music is simple but very effective. Most ambient/drone music these days is just aural wallpaper, but this is really quite gripping: https://cafekaput.bandcamp.com/album/autres-directions

Laucan – Frames Per Second. Post-Radiohead singer songwriter guy. Nicely quirky in places, a bit plain in others, though the last track sounds surprisingly like Roy Harper. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1mX-0UjS38

Stonefield – As Above So Below. Listened to this by accident, thinking it was something else. It’s OK actually, an enthusiastic mix of hard, stoner and garage rock by four sisters from Australia.

Jane Weaver – Modern Kosmology. Super stuff, and here’s a nice film of Ms Weaver talking about the making of it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zr7rt_yL6Bc

The Home Current – s/t EP. Bedroom indietronica, fine but didn’t leave much impression.

Hey Colossus – ‘Englishman’. Not as sold on their latest album as the excellent Radio Static High, but they’ve made an amusing video for perhaps its best track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBp8bLxW1Uk

Golem – Orion Awakes. One of the Pyramid bands from those Unknown Deutschland albums, rumoured to be made by various Krautrock semi-luminaries in disguise. It’s rather good German space rock, bit like a less primitive Hawkwind in places. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqXGrLiee1M

Captain Beyond – Lost & Found 1972-1973. This lot (who included ex-Deep Purple singer Rod Evans) made a brilliant debut album in ’72, like a meeting of US blues rock and British prog, then comprehensively failed to capitalise on it for all the usual reasons. These are demos from just before and after its release – interesting, but you know, get the album… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=On2KTsOtXn8

Hawkwind – Roadhawks. The first, and still the best, Hawkwind compilation, edited and remixed by Captain Brock himself. Unavailable since the early 80s due to a rights issue. Features this mind-blowing live version of ‘You Shouldn’t Do That’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgrKUDQQKsc

Listen With Father:

Radiohead – The Bends. This had a strangely pacifying effect on the kids. As ‘High And Dry’ turned into ‘Fake Plastic Trees’, I thought my eldest was about to have a Father Ted moment https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NjISA-FIIA but she was OK ;-)
