Music - The root of all Evil, and the cause
of much joy
Of course, I've just made up that Einstein quote, because I've noticed
that a well respected quote can lent a certain tone to your web pages -
if a suitable one doesn't exist, then make it up!
In this section I have gathered a few bits and bobs about music. And
as if this wasn't enough to keep the hoards happy I also have some links
First of all here are a couple of pages which I'm hosting.
Interplanetary Luggage Mix Ups is a CD of music featuring the tip top talent
of students from the University of Surrey. The CD features 10 songs, all by
different bands. In the case of the music department bands, there is a slightly
inbred feeling. The same drummer features in 7 out of 10 of the songs! But whatever
this is a great CD, and I'm pleased I have a copy, as too am I pleased to have
know many of the artists! Follow the link and you too can get your hands on
this masterpiece for free. Only while stocks last!!
These pages ARE well out of date, since they come from the time when "Blue
Is The Colour" was just released. This is not the point. The point is that
I rescued them just a day before the old Go! Discs site shut down (because
the label died), This means that these pages are to be considered a family
heirloom! Despite their age they contain some interesting personal info
about the band, and a discography upto the time of blue is the colour.
The newish official Beautiful South homepage can be found at http://www.beautifulsouth.co.uk/.
of interest (maybe)
But that's not all I wanted to tell you about. Now, you see, is time for me to
show off. Because I'm quite keen on music, I have a lot of it. Lots of chart music,
of course, but for some reason lots of other stuff my friends have never heard
of. Quite a lot of this has come from listening to Danny
Baker's radio shows. All in I have about 300 CD albums, and 400 CD singles.
This has been added to over the last year by a vast 80's Vinyl collection (including
NOW! 1..14!) which I occasionally DJ (to various acclaim) I don't relish in buying
stuff other people don't know about, I just buy what I like. But then who has
Richard O'Brein's latest album? Hootie & the Blowfish anyone? there a few
bands whose records I buy almost religiously. There's The Beautiful South, R.E.M,
and The KLF. KLF records are a real nightmare to get hold of, but thankfully there
are plenty of bootlegs. The best record I own is a CD single of K Cera Cera, still
in it's original wrapping!
Aren't you glad you read that paragraph now? You've gained absolutely
nothing from it, except to realise what sort of fellow I am. Which is hopefully a good thing.
