Hi Mike---So far I have heard none of P"art's instrumental music, so I shall follow your advice and look fot SUMMA. I've seen it. If it's on I TUNES I shall download it this evening.. The choral stuff took me completely by surprise. I am a music lover who knows nothing about theory and very little about musicology. but when I first heard the gorgeous vocal works of P"art the sound struck me as something quite new. I was dflighted and amazed, since I had thought of him (I don't know why) as some merely commercial, new age chillout music person. I could not have been more wrong. The stuff is great, so thanks for the reference.

Thanks Mike. I downloaded an album of Pärt's music, played by the Estonian something Orchestra. SUMMA is on it.

Two nights ago I listened to Pärt's 3rd Symphony. It's wonderful.

Sunday at Devil Dirt - Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan.

Wonderful stuff. Really well-crafted songs, sort of Nick Cave meets Nick Drake, with Lanegan's rich, gravelly voice perfectly complementing Campbell's ethereal backing vocals. Lovely instrumental arrangements too.

And now I must download their first collaboration, 'Ballad of the Broken Seas'...

Julian Cope - Black Sheep.

A little more 'tuneful' than recent efforts, although he still has a tendancy to wig-out both musically and verbally.

Tempting, but JC's thrash/shaman/stripped-down stuff has over the last few years really disagreed with me. Pity, 'cos he's a brilliant tunesmith. Maybe I should check this one out...

np, Rush, Hemispheres
Rush In Rio

I recently downloaded a compilation of his earlier stuff called 'Floored Genius', with tracks ranging from 'Passionate Friend' to 'World Shut Your Mouth' etc. Certainly some good things there.

Only Shonen Knife LP I have is "Let's Knife" from year's back...are they still going Tony?

Also, just noticed today that Sonic Youth have a new CD out (The Eternal) which I'll be picking up at some point :)

Blimey, Shonen Knife! Saw them at Reading in 92, I think. John Peel's pet band at the time, if memory serves.

Not sure, but the 'band' is now a duo + guests, and CD that I have is Genki Shock(2006) on Glue Factory label.
