I am back from Singapore, got back in time for Matthew and Carrie’s shared birthday party, but was a little jet lagged or just plain tired. Happy Birthday to both of you again. A few of us have decided to do the ultimate in music geekiness and start a record listening club. The idea is similar to book reading and discussion groups, but involves listening to historically relevant musicians and discussing. Our first subject is Brian Eno and our first discussion involves the significance of his ambient works. We’ll see how long we last, but it should at least be a fun experiment. We’ll at least be able to mooch off of Adam’s subscription to The Wire.
I’m trying to finish off all of the details for the next three btv releases: Bosque Brown Plays Mara Lee Miller (btv064), Saxon Shore : Be a Bright Blue (btv065), and Saxon Shore : Luck Will Not Save Us from a Jackpot of Nothing (btv066). We have some vinyl getting ready for completion, Starflyer 59’s Talking Voice vs. Singing Voice. We should have it ready by mid to late March, I hope, a little bit before the cd version is available.
