Secret Machines "Ten Silver Drops" - they are in the register of prog rock acts but they are very modern sounding and will crossover to indie band fans.

Tangerine Dream - Tangram. Or at least it would be if my job allowed me to play music. <img border="0" alt="[Pissed]" title="" src="graemlins/pissed.gif" /> Fortunately my low capacity organic MP3 player (or brain) allows me to listen to it anyway. smile

Finally got my hands on the Nation 12 reissue. It's interesting to hear how some of the tracks have been recorded again for later releases like Leaving/Through my sleeping and Invisible women

Luckily I can listen to music at work, I don't know if would have survived without it. Must be terrible being denied that right frown

So far today I have been listening to Mesh (We Collide) and John Foxx's new "Looped Los Angelese" track.

Yesterday I listened to Gary Numan's 'Jagged', 'Solarized' by Ian Brown and... some of my own ambient music!

Gave in and played Ultravox 'hammersmith '80',
and one track by 'fatal charm' the support for that night. And some cath oceans live. The real atempt to not play Ultravox though starts monday.

I listened yesterday und today to Gary Numan's compilation EXPOSURE (which will hopefully get signed wednesday by him, I think that's the reason for the space left in the upper right corner of the booklet's frontpage).
Today outside in the garden I listened to RADIOSHOW by SPLIFF and BAYREUTH 3 by JOACHIM WITT.

Started my week of not playing any music from any artist at all!!. There will be no hifi, mp3 player, or dvds. I wont keep posting results as its more of a private test for me, just to see how important the music is.
And anyway to keep telling people what im NOT doing, it would be as intresting as a poor man's David Blaine biglaugh

I wouldn't have lasted long doing that, music is almost as important as food laugh

Listening to Deep Dish's Global Underground set from Toronto at the moment, nice easy going music for a surprisingly warm and summery day in Norway shock viking

This morning I've been listening to:

Men Without Hats - Folk of the 80's part III
Martha + The Muffins - Far away in time

It just occured to me that both bands are from Canada, bit of a co-incidence. A lot of good music came from Canada at the time though, Rational Youth is another favourite of mine.

I Agree, skipped this song... laugh , but this was 1977, like it or not...

Think I have to select "the best" from it, there are some other stinkers on it too...
Decided to watch to a bootleg now. Depeche Mode PTA-Tour 2006 Mannheim/Germany. A wonderful recording..."Enjoy the silence" running now...

Well now you know how sad it would be to be deaf laugh frown

I'm listening Brian Eno & John Cale's Wrong way up CD. Surprisingly good IMO, there is a song called "Spinning away" which is just pure class.

Just got my hands on Philip Glass' Low & Heroes symphonies as well today smile

Valeriun,

I got the Eno/Cale album some years ago. Some excellent tracks. Spinning Away is one of my favourites. It was used on a tv commercial about ten years ago for Burtons (a men's clothes chain)here in the uk. Suprised it was never released as a single.One Word was released as a single instead back in '90.

Si,

I received my copy of Only After Dark yesterday. Excellent compilation. My first chance to here The Normal track. Couldn't locate it previously anywhere else. Andy

It's a very "balearic" track that (I don't know a better term laugh ), it has a very summery vibe to it.

Listening to a couple of old Wire albums today, Pink Flag and Chairs Missing. Must admit I like their late 80's output better...

About six years ago steven i decided that playing music for over 20 years may be just a way of wasting my time.
Every Christmas time since, ive thought of not playing anything for an whole year, jan 1st - dec 31st.
But thats all i ever did, just think about it.
So ive decided to not play anything for an whole week.
If i feel i can do without it easy for a week, i may decide to stop for a year, or permanant.

Listening to FUNDAMENTAL by the PSB. Well I posted somewhere else here about the track I'M WITH STUPID. The album itself now is somehow different, more a concept-album I think. I'M WITH STUPID is PSB "as it's best" (meaning as everybody know's them from the 80s and 90s). The album itself is somehow more quiet and melancholic. I did not payed much attention to the lyrics until now, only talking about the music. Next spins are then more focused to the lyrics. Thanks to Mr. Tennant's remarkable voice and his spoken "schoolbook"-english, this should not be a big problem. I like it, but like all albums from the last time, it needs to grow I think.
