Re: Biggest Disappointments of 2007

Brave man, sticking your head above the parapet, Hatta. I agree more or less with what you say about the Fuhler, Looper (a yawn indeed), the Rowe / Krebs and the Rhodri Davies, which seems to have yielded up all it's likely to yield up to my weary ears after five listens.. and take your point on the...

Neither would I, if only to compare with the earlier Bouzel Complete Webern set with the LSO and the Juilliard 4tet. Anyone got both?

On relistening to the recording of the interview I take this to mean "almost another world [from the piece you've just played me]". Our conversation was in reference to Earle Brown's Octet I.

He repeatedly denied the accusations from Tina's autobiography (and autobiographical film), and then published a (partly) repudiating account in his own autobiography, not surprisingly in very toned down terms. In any case, it doesn't diminish his musical achievements. (Same goes for Wagner and Gar...

Excellent article, thanks for bringing it to my attention. From the forthcoming Keith Rowe Invisible Jukebox in next month's Wire : "I would say the two supreme recordings of last century are John Tilbury's [recording of Morton Feldman's] For Bunita Marcus and David Tudor's recording of Cage's Varia...

Greenwich Village is good also, and the other one I really like is Albert Smiles with Sunny, which is recordings of the same trio as Spiritual Unity (Peacock/Murray) a few weeks before. this material is also half on Prophecy and half on disc 2 of Holy Ghost, but if you can still find ASWS, I'd defi...

Re: The IHM Christmas Wish List

You're gonna love that box set. Some essential stuff on there - from Coltrane's funeral for instance. I thought that was one of the more disappointing tracks in the box, along with the much trumpeted Ayler-meets-Cecil track. Nice documentation though, but if you're starting in on Ayler I'd go with ...

if you could use some sort of explosive to actually blow up an artist who would it be and what sort of explosive would you use? Probably myself.

If you could blow up (as in make them huge with the adoring masses of the world) any small or unknown act who would it be? Manuel Mota maybe.

Thought that was rather funny, actually. Odd.. it's as if Stockhausen died for me sometime in the mid 80s, when he disappeared into the Verlag (gulag?). with its gaudy photos of birthday cakes and frilly shirts and inevitable (yawn) "Stockhausen and the Beatles" pages. I've been telling myself for y...

Nice collection of links, thanks! Reminded me just how much I dislike those omnipresent xylophone / vibraphone rolls.. Why does he always have to double the melody with pitched percussion?

Always been a bit wary around hardcore Zappa lovers (not thinking of Ben Watson specifically, whom I've only met once, but L?

Whaddya mean, crapping out?
