Rory Gallagher. Man, he could play.

I saw him at a Kent Custom Bike show.

Me too Steph. We must have been in the same crowd. That was a long time ago.

Smetana is great. I love  Má vlast.

Tonight its Grand Funk Railroad "We're an American Band"

They are quite interesting in that they were huge stadium fillers in the 70's, bigger than Aerosmith, Van Halen or any of teh other bands that are still famous but have been just about forgotten now.

Listening to this now I can see why. They fall between two stools, sort of a bit proggy and a bit rock but not a really distinct sound. The songs aren't on the whole memorable either though the musicianship is good. Sort of between the early and the late seventies.

The title track of the album "We're an American Band" is blindingly good though.

Since Friday, when it was released, "Balance not Symmetry" by Biffy Clyro. A bit of a departure for them as it is a soundtrack album. However it isn't just a commercial cash in album, the film inspired the music and vice versa.

As one review put it, its a return to pre-puzzle Biffy. Fantastic!

Just heard Fauré's choral version of  his Pavane on the car radio. Unfortunately the piano accompanist was a heavyweight boxer on his bran break so the choir was only occasionally audible.  Or maybe the sound guy needed a suppository.

Damn.  Flicking through the CD rack I put on Rim Banna's "Revelation Of Ecstasy & Rebellion" ,  that prompted me to Google her & I find that she died last year aged 51. Fuck cancer.

Never heard of them before today but it seems they were the original all girl rock band. 1970-74. Preceded the Runaways by a fair bit.
Not bad at all.

Liszt orchestral music.  Picked up this 5 volume CD pack on Amazon for £4.99.  Kurt Masur conducting.  Shameful that his Symphonic Poems are hardly ever recorded let alone performed.  Brass sections around the world would be queuing up to thunder audiences with Mazeppa.

Right now I am listening to Tom Jones performing in, I guess, Eastville Park for Bristol Pride. Ironically events there come in through the window loud and clear but stuff in St Paul's, like Carnival last week, (or say Lakota any night), we don't hear at all despite it being much closer. I'm quite enjoying Tom, I wasn't so keen on Love Saves the Day a couple of months ago.

Tom has finished. Sounds like the crowd are bellowing for an encore but I don't think they're going to get one. Apparently he was at the County Ground (cricket stadium) not Eastville.

The sound check from some bash over in Lloyd Park.  Highly-educated bunch of soundmans they have over there; this one could count up to seven!

Frightened Rabbit (RIP Scott Hutchison)
The new Biffy Clyro cover of The Modern Leper is a good one, but Scott's solo performance here is brilliant - especially his hilarious audience dialogue at the start:
