beth gibbons & rustin man: out of season [2002]



i wasn't even aware of this album ( :oops: ?), just half-accidentally grabbed it from a discount section of one second hand shop.

it's really an excellent album!

currently: 'funny time of year'
here's a live version from paleo folk festival 2003: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AmKkz5-lyA&fmt=14

Ay, in the very temple of Delight
Veil'd Melancholy has her sovran shrine

fiction

Woodbox Gang - Drunk As Dragons (Current track: Shadow of Tom).

Oh Bugger! These three first tracks; Shadow of Tom, Drunk as Dragons and Tough Guy Blues are really magic! Quite the oppsosite type of record and music from Beth Gibbons. This is more like The Violent Femmes on speed.
again and again and again and again and again and...

I ment no harm. I listened to Beth Gibbons, of whom I didn´t know before, and liked what I heard. So I just ment to say that The Woodbox Gang doing their stuff in another corner of rock ´n´ roll.

you're not familiar with Portishead then? she's their singer of course -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beth_Gibbons

yet i didn't know until now that 'rustin man' is actually a pseudonym (for paul webb) -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rustin_Man

CLT: Depeche Mode - Wrong (new single)

Someone said the video plays out like a little thriller, sure does. I thought the song was too repetitive at first, WRONG, quite like it now. Here's hoping they've kept up this standard with the other songs on the upcoming album. Might easily outdo 4:13 Dream in that case (and it'll be released one day before Robert's 50th birthday and all, aaw, cheeky...).

Aha... Okay I know about Portishead but I don´t have any albums with them and I didn´t make the connection. But I liked what I´ve heard with Portishead. Thanx for updating me.

Definitely getting ready for an update, just the thing to put an end to the past hellish week once and for all, ugh. You'll get your update too of course (I'll be easier on the piano music this time. No, wait... :twisted:). Check your inbox tomorrow. By the way:

CLT: Alice Cooper - Caught in a Dream

That's a good 'un! The others too.

Moonlight Sonata  :smth020  Gorgeous.


i'm glad to see a beethoven link here  :D then again, personally i don't enjoy these versions of classical pieces where some dude just has added some strings and vocals (be it synthesizer or real thing) on the original. i suppose they are trying to make it more atmospheric but i think it only works the other way round, it ruins the whole thing. it's like someone took mona lisa and thought "the lady looks ok but the background is kind of dull - now let me paint a better one over the original". which is a sort of crappy idea, i think  :eek:
call me a purist but i like my beethoven served untampered. ;)

some versions of the 1st movement that i really like:

emil gilels (one of my favorite pianists of all time): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CuKdFJYPx2U&fmt=18

heres the great eccentric, vladimir horowitz: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzXkPQJOexU&fmt=18


by the way the first movement is well known but the complete sonata is magnificent too. here's the third (and final) movement of the same sonata, played by yevgeni kissin:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_9-2nbyYGU&fmt=18

sounds like a concert performance. i quite like it.
