"the new girl" that song rules. i never did spend enough time listening to the rest of the album, but again i must thank digi for including that on the ICDE3 mix.

"Cinnamon" and "Bride and Bridle" are really good tunes from the same album, ja.

Three Canadians, seven albums, a roomful of obscure Middle Eastern instruments, influences from Echo & the Bunnymen and Joy Division to U2 to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, some serious Zeppelin fandom in their youth (and an aversion to the Doors... it's not the man's fault he's born with a baritone voice and black curly hair, sheezus!)
...intelligent, provocative, emotional lyrics drawn from deeply personal experiences as well as the writings of Burroughs, Bulgakov, Tom Cowan to name a few...
....covers and collaborations with Daniel Lanois, Roy Harper, Holly McNarland, Ritesh Das, the Toronto Tabla Ensemble and others...
...major involvement in the White Ribbon Campaign - working to end domestic violence- as well as the Transition to Betterness, a nonprofit organization for cancer patients and their families.
...Last and importantly -- Amazing music over the years, from "Morrocan-roll" to digital loops and effects to stripped-down full-on guitar rock.

The Tea Party
Transition to Betterness
The White Ribbon Campaign
River of the Interzone (fansite)


bulgakov? really?

japan. they're a fantastic band. i think it's safe to say that without them, the new wave movement may not have existed. duran duran wanted them to produce their first album. (they said no and had colin thurston, who'd produced david bowie, instead.) quiet life sounds like the predecessor for planet earth and other airy, atmospheric early 80s songs. gentlemen take polaroids is arguably the best album from 80-84. their earlier stuff is good as well, but it sounds nothing like their last three albums. but if you like glam rock, you'll love it. it is amazing too how a band can go from sounding like new york dolls to duran duran. three of my favourite bands (duran duran, inxs, tears for fears) listed them as influences and when i asked john taylor, my god, about them and he went on and on, i knew i had to check them out.

i don't really know what else to say.

That's OK, no one else listens to them either....

Of course, that makes them accessible to me.

Warp Factor 9 Five Days in a Photon Belt

If you got a fax which started out -- "You Must Read This At some time between mid July of this year, 1992 and 1993 this Planet is likely to Experience and extraordinary phenomenon, Five days of continuous darkness or Five days of continuous brilliant light " what would you do? Most people would probably toss it after reading just that much. However, this fax went to Russell Kilbey, who with one of his brothers (John) and a couple other musicians shut themselves into a recording studio for a few days, and essentially used the fax to create a theme album.

It's definantly an album which only fits certain moods, but if your in a fatalistic mood and want to hear a bit of fun electronica, this is the perfect album!

full text of the fax here
