Lynne Jackaman (ex St Jude) has finally recorded new material vs Blues Pills (Holy Moly) - first recording without their iconic guitarist Dorian Serriaux.  Neither added much to the world, but I felt that Holy Moly was the Blues Pills back to form.

Today I am listening to Birds Do It, Bees Do It, Even Little Educated Fleas Do It running round and round inside me 'ead. I don't know where it came from but I wish it would bugger off.  My parents hadn't yet met when that torture device was thrust upon the world.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

At a drive in show in July this year.  Unstoppable.  And they still rock despite Eric Bloom and Buck Dharma being older than Noah.

Lara Fabian - Je suis malade (I am sick)
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

More Lara, possibly the best audience sing along I have ever heard.

https://youtu.be/IYnFwUbC9A8

Apparently she was having a very rough time in her personal life and it had been in the French media. Before this gig in Paris her pianist had secretly suggested to one of her fans that it would be nice if they sang along. Watch the shock in her eyes when they start. The audience also changed the lyrics from "Je t'amine" (I love you) to "On t’aime" (we love you).

All Them Witches - Nothing as the Ideal.  I should be working on a last-minute proposal document and have so far written 40 words with 3 typos in 25 minutes.  It is not helping with my productivity but it is sure bending my mind in appropriate directions.  It is a bit like the Doors discovering Hawkwind, bingeing on Pink Floyd and then heading off whatever direction took their fancy.

My new eBay bargain HiFi:

NAD 3130 amp
NAD 5425 CD player
NAD 5120 record deck
KEF Coda III speakers

About £280 for the lot. Sounds brilliant so far (haven't tried the record deck yet).
The CD player was supposed to have a dead display (its easy to replace the small bulb with an LED so I wasn't bothered about that) but it just burst into life all by itself.#
The volume pot on the amp is a tad crackly so I will need to break out the contact cleaner and probably blow out the internals as it looks dusty as hell in there.

For a supposedly 30W amp the 3130 has got some oomph, I cant turn the thing up past about a quarter without it being deafening and those KEF speakers are 8 omh!
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Bob Seger.  Must have heard Night Moves hundreds of times in my life, but only just realised how awesome a song it is.

Anna von Hausswolf.  partly because of the mesmerising video that accompanies the music and opens out the imagination without ever giving any answers.  A pipe organ as you have never heard it before and yet making the instrument relevant for vast new genres of music.

Most of the images in the video come from "Sacro Bosco," the 16th century Gardens of Bomarzo in Italy.  The garden was her inspiration for All Thoughts Fly, the album that this track comes from.  "The organ on All Thoughts Fly is situated in Gothenburg and is a Swedish replica of the Arp Schnitger organ in Germany. It is the largest organ tuned in Quarter-comma meantone temperament in the world. With its four manuals, one pedal and 54 stops, it was built as part of a ten-year research project reconstructing 17th Century North German organ building craft."

It's a really good album and certainly puts the Goth in Gothenburg...
