Y'know I haven't recently been listening to my own records lately but that will change after Christmas I'm sure... Anyhoo still been listening intensely to (yep!) Caprice Radio Network the past few days. It's just such a crazy thing... It has even made me listen to music I never had time for in the past, such as various weird trends like Acid Jazz which I never paid attention to when it was a big thing. Even the Classical channels are good, better than the one radio station that plays that in my town... (No stuff overplayed, nothing too stodgy.)

David Bowie - Heroes
Ian Brown - Golden Greats, Music of the Spheres and Solarized
Beta Band - S/T, Hot Shots II, and Heroes to Zeros

INKS - Kick. Have to admit liking the singles from this 80's pop rock outfit, but a bit naff in general

Jackson Boone - Organic Light Factory

Jambinai - Differance. I wonder if they've been reading Derrida?!!! Probably my discovery of the year, Jambinai. Delightful South Korean Post Rock.

James Holden & the Animal Spirits - Animal Spirits

Jane Weaver - Kosmology & The Fallen by Watchbird

*Edit* With it being the century for looking back and reunions, I would absolutely love it if the Beta Band reformed. They never really nailed it on an album so there is unfinished business - although an honourable mention should be given to the 3 EP's

Slim pickings again. Haven’t had the school run and been trying to do various bits and pieces at night (and can’t work to music)…

Panoptique Electrical – Quiet Ecology. Random piano/cello ambient thing I saw on a Norman Records mail out. A better than average offering of this type of thing… https://soundinsilencerecords.bandcamp.com/album/quiet-ecology

W is for…

Walrus – s/t. A slightly oddball, horn-driven, heavy UK psych album from 1970. Bought on the strength of this track, which is stupendously good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x11AcLhLg5o Fair to say the rest of the album doesn’t quite live up to its promise, but it’s from that fascinating 1-2 year period when psych hadn’t quite petered out and prog hadn’t properly got going (or hadn’t become formalised), and bands were allowed to do what the hell they liked, as the labels chased the ‘underground pound’ (this was originally on Deram) without really knowing what was going to fly.

Witch – s/t. Not the Zambian band, but a one-off downer rock treat from 2006, its main selling point being that J Mascis plays the drums on it (though frankly it could be anybody). There seemed to be a whole slew of bands like this popping up at the time off the back of the 70s metal revival that various music blog/download sites seemed to be partly responsible for. It’s pretty good, and the opening track is fantastic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5von-_FI0U but the main thought that occurred on revisiting it was, “blimey, this doesn’t half sound like Uncle Acid…”, even down to the vocals.

Wow that is quite uncanny sweetcheat. Throughout my teenage years The Cure were the band I was obsessed with and we read The DIR in English at Secondary School and I absolutely loved it. Read the other books in the series as a consequence and got well into the mythology of it all - that whole Arthurian/Pagan vibe. I wonder if it is a coincidence that one of my fav TV series (Robin of Sherwood) had Herne the Hunter in it too.

Do you re-read the whole series or just that title? I think I'm right in saying that the series are the only books I have actually re-read! Such a shame they completely killed the film adaptation with its hollywood styled treatment. It would make a really great set of films if done right.

I was reading Seaward this year too. Not really as good, but worth a quick read.

Going back to 17 seconds, I bet it must have been quite influential in the post rock movement. My fav ever version of A Forest is on the live video 'Show'. This also reminds me that I really should get around to getting Faith on CD. I used to have the cassette which had 'Carnage Visors' on Side 2.

Sweet memories...
