It's great that newsrooms all round are packed with anal types who bought albums and probably smoked a few big ones to them back in the day.
 

 

The range of stuff you can hear in TV docs etc is amazing. Re-watched a BBC documentary about IK Brunel yesterday (yeah the one for the Greatest Britons series but it's actually rather good) and it had slabs of Pete Namlook and Aphex Twin in it. Someone somewhere was having a laugh, but it actually all works rather well in context, certainly the use of Rhubarb as background for the tragic failure of the SS Great Eastern and Brunel's death.
 
The BBC of course do not have to pay for any music they use, so the aural world is their oyster.

The Keep for me.

 

 

 

He made the news headlines on Radio Four this morning. It's great that newsrooms all round are packed with anal types who bought albums and probably smoked a few big ones to them back in the day. Seriously, anyone who nudged the UK charts or once called themselves a cult hero are all provably obitable now. Froese is way better than - say - 20% of Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Titch in this dept. But an obit is an obit, and there may well be points aplenty in future years if we pick popsters.

The best compilation/best of album (whatever) I own, bar none, is The Virgin Years 1974-1978 by TD.  If you don't own it, now would be a good time.  Basically the entire Pheadra/Rubicon/Ricochet/Stratosfear/Cyclone albums combined and complete.  What they did afterward post-Baumann was somewhat forgettable, but by God this 6-year stretch or so was an aural delight.  I was blessed to see them live but not till 1985 or so.  Not like they came to Detroit all the time...

Anyone who doesn't list Froese in their top 5 'Deaths of 2015' will find themselves on my 2016 DP for having a fucking tin ear.

Rubycon by Tangerine Dream is a great album to unwind to after an MDMA binge. Just saying'.
