I was a bit safer and had a listen to No 2 - Kronos, with Kimmo Pohjonen, also on spotty - it was quite alright really though at bits sounded like Dr Who when they are building towards the denouement - can be a bit over the top, but ain't that the story of Kronos - saw them in the mid 80s in Glasgow and mighty good they were - is it unfair to say that they haven't moved on a lot? Still, very listenable, but not album of the month - so maybe I shouldn't record this here.
Oh dear. Global, do you have a way of altering the title to "Good Albums of the Moment"? Lat.
Wilco Captain, but I require an authorisation notice from Mother first.

While the latter is the objective, the former gets the job done. (Our request might not be agreed to though).

No 17 is the group I was mentioning elsewhere that Simon Broughton played a track from on Cerys' show on Sunday morning. Sounded pretty good to me.

Not one of Trikont's better jobs, imo
It's like wading through sludge, this listening to most of these shiny new but essentially dull, latest releases.
Well that's what my ears are telling me ( and have done for years ! )
Hey PS this is a kind of sad post.

That was, after all, what drove Mr Ravenscroft on and on and on....He did find one or two.
This week I am mostly enjoying Seun Kuti on Spotty.:cool2:
