It took me all day to listen properly to Decentred again. I did as I said I would last night and put it on to listen to in bed, but of course I promptly fell asleep just minutes into the first track. I’ve listened carefully a few times today now though, and as I type […]

Sunday 28th June

June 29, 2009

Another hot stuffy day with quite a bit of it sat on ridiculously hot and overcrowded trains and buses as I headed up to Cafe Oto again, this time to catch Tetsuya Umeda play solo and with Benedict Drew.  There was also a third set involving Drew and a number of other musicians whose names […]

A better day today, sorry for the depressing posts of late. This evening I watched a DVD, which regular readers will know I do rarely, but usually enjoy it when I do take the time. Today I watched 6 Films, a compilation disc of the work of Emily Richardson, a London based experimental film-maker. Not […]

A tiring day today so excuse me if this post doesn’t end up as long as other recent ones. I’ll start tonight by sending another shameless plug in the direction of Ben Drew’s website to point to another free download album he has made available entitled (curiously) A Folding Table.

Monday 9th February

February 9, 2009

Bleeeuuuurrggghh! I just walked home from work through a minor blizzard. Very late tonight, arriving home at 1AM covered in a layer of snow. The walk was great though, and the fact that I sit here now only just beginning to dry off was countered by the exhilarating experience of walking through clouds of snow […]

..waiting for the gift of sound and vision

June 2, 2007

A short report on a concert that happened last Monday, a while ago now at the start of a hectic week that included a lot of bother from work as well as the adrenalin rush and necessary hard work that a new Cathnor Recordings release brings, but a big enough speactacle of a show that […]
