Re: fade-outs

oh and i just reminded myself of this here record. the a side is a beatles suite with a handful of very considered fade-outs and sometimes fun interludes (here echoplexed bass clarinet), excellent throughout (contrary to our previous jazzed-up beatles experiences on this thread) http://www.youtube.c...

Re: fade-outs

thanks for those! the roxy one is at the end of a side, so that's less surprising than the koerner/murphy at the start of side b. that second workman fade-out you're mentioning makes no sense at all! (and wow, that steely dan track is unlistenable :P )

Re: fade-outs

we've had this strategy before on a grant green funk record, studio fade-outs combined with canned applause, but here it's even more pure: a somewhat overproduced gillespie album from 69 repackaged as a "live" recording in 77 with a courteous clap track that sounds totally out of place (plus these a...

That was the Redux version (with the French stuck upriver - Aurore Clément and Christian Marquand)?

Re: Futbol 2021-22

that's definitely been it. not just the results, but marsch has nothing, no ideas how to maybe gear the system to the players at hand, how to motivate players that need a kick in the ass. the problem of course is there's no replacement in sight who'd guarantee improvement. they might get the previou...

haha, spurs continue to play without fear ... of their new blue-chip coach with the famous hot temper. rangnick to man u is a bit baffling ... of all the projects he'd been on the radar for, this seems the worst fit. for him, ronaldo (and pogba etc.) might actually be a problem, he won't get instant...

hey, i expected to see some joy over the international break here. conte celebrating like he had won the champions league was fun. so he is able to wake them up some, at least for a half. though picking a beef with ndombele doesn't seem too far removed from mourinho tactics. i'm still not sure this ...

Re: Futbol 2021-22

international break, yawn. i've seen stretches of various games. first of all, rats beat dortmund, looking creative but totally immature, and yet for once completing their deserved win against a top (?, sans haaland) team might mean a real step forward. spurs were beyond sluggish, it's incredible, n...

Re: Futbol 2021-22

couldn't watch but again the soft belly. i guess a little charisma would help marsch right now. players are better than the results (not necessarily in the back, but still a little more clearness would go a long way there), so this is on the manager. the manager may also be better than the results, ...

Have the German press taken to calling Marsch "Ted Lasso"? I hope that stupid show doesnt undermine him however subtly. this series is not a thing over here at all. haven't seen it, but judging from the usually awful us soccer commentary i'd suspect it would be a hard sell. i have to say, though, t...
