Only thing different from last week I listened to was Edgar Froese Stuntman which was a huge dissapointment.

Other than that I tried to get a trade in for a book about alien encounters/UFOs but instead wound up getting the Records first album and China Crisis Flaunt the Imperfection (latter was the limited edition with a free 7" inch.)

But anyways on that subject of UFOs am reading Left at East Gate by Larry Warren and Peter Robbins. Actually that's all I'm going to say on the subject, me being someone who used to view this as mostly alot of hooey until some recent revelations I just found out the last two weeks...

Jeffery Lewis @ Exeter Phoenix 2011 & Mono, Falmouth 2015. Brings back happy memories of great gigs. Such a unique performer and character.

Magik Markers in New York 09

Midlake @ Exeter Uni 2010

Azimouth Co-ordinator @ Exeter Phoenix 2013. Great use of sax much in the vein of 21st century schizoid man

The Verve - A Storm in heaven. Not too fussed about this - songs didn't seem distinctive enough.

The Zodiac - Cosmic Sounds. Pleasant discovery after hearing the libra track on Gideon Coe's show. Lovely hippy dippy stuff with a song dedicated to each sign of the zodiac! Production pretty good.

Melange – Viento Bravo. Pleasant enough 70s-style Spanish prog, quite Camel/Canterbury-esque, though no doubt references a load of Spanish bands whose names I can’t remember: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oryRNpsFAYw

Nik Turner – Life In Space. This is surprisingly quite good, even as you wonder “is this really what a bloke in his late 70s wants to be doing?” Get the impression he’d rather do an album of jazz standards, but space is still the place as far as fans are concerned. Another ex-Hawkwind person Simon House on this track: https://nikturnermusic.bandcamp.com/track/back-to-earth-2

Godspeed You! Black Emperor – Luciferian Towers. Yep, this is really good, their best since their ‘reformation’.

VA – One Way Glass. Have been listening to this for what seems like weeks, and still only halfway through. Comp of 70s prog/funk/R&B, some gems, but a lot of chaff. Great Pentangle b-side: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tB42OjvaAM

VA – Brown Acid: The Fifth Trip. Ultra obscure US proto-metal singles given a second chance. Mostly the sound of a barrel being scraped, but this is rather cool: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrwbFrUAq3U

VA – Neu Decade. Excellent MOJO Krautrock comp, not just the usual suspects.

S is for…

DJ Shadow – The Private Press/’You Can Never Go Home Again’ CD single. OK, not as obscure as some of my recent picks from the archive, but the point at which, having been a massive fan, I seem to have stopped buying DJ Shadow product. This was the follow up to Endtroducing, his debut album which has ultimately eclipsed everything he’s done since (not that I’ve heard his recent stuff). It’s actually stronger in places than the debut, and has been mined extensively for incidental music on film/TV. It does dip on ‘side 2’ though, being a bit too eclectic for its own good. But when it’s great, it’s really great. ‘You Can Never Go Home Again’ was the single released ahead of the album, and for me, this edited version is better than the album cut: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7rZGZLbsLs
This was also this week’s Listen With Father – lucky kids…

Oh, couple of non-music things worth mentioning. Went to see Oxide Ghosts: The Brass Eye Tapes, currently touring cinemas with the original series’ director – lots of outtakes/unused sketches, very funny. And just watched ‘The Commuter’, the latest of C4’s Philip K Dick series Electric Dreams – haven’t been sold on the previous two episodes, but this one was excellent, helped enormously by Timothy Spall’s performance.

First heard this on the John Peel show in the 90's, He played a track a night fer a week or so, and it's daffy astrology concept, and groovy sounds had me hooked from the off. Kinda reminds me of that Leary spoken word sountdtrack, 'Tune In Turn On Drop Out' in parts, though that can get a bit spooky, and dare I say 'far out' in places.
Someone told me ZCS was just a Mort Garson concept album to show off what the Moog synth could do, but don't know how true that is....it's certainly a better record than a lot of those 'so and so plays Brahms on a synth' albums that flooded the market at one time.
