  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Bill Evans (The other one that played with Miles in the 80's) 'Soul Insider'. Great contemporary soul jazz played by top modern jazzers.

    Fox The sound of one hoof clopping

    Yamaytaka Eye & John Zorn -- Duo (With Sawia Takeji and Fred Frith)

    Hard core and spacious soundscapes. Its funny because Zorn keeps playing Masada licks between some of his most groaning, imploring and punctuated playing. Imagine the meeps, goans and moans of Keith Jarrett but voiced by a Sax... Eye adds the noisescapes and what sounds like someone tapping on the top of a cardboard tube Imagine that mixed with 2001 a space odyssey sounds and you've got it.

    Update: Hysterical screaming Japanese male voice having a shitfit at something and John Zorn's bloodied and tortured alto sax surrounded by hordes of digial buzzing wasps and shimmering open channel distortion is a completely mindbending experience... I think I should form a religion around this... Incredible stuff. This isn't even the edge of my world, but its gotta be getting close.

    Fave track so far is Big Muff Dive I know I know... I am completely shallow really...

    Cecil Taylor/Tony Oxley, Leaf Palm Hand. Possibly my favourite of the 10 CDs of Cecil playing with various groups and solo over a month in Berlin in 1988, released by FMP as a box and still available separately. Just awesome.

    Scott H. Biram - The Dirty Old One Man Band

    Variously described as hillbilly blues-core, manic mean-man blues, and a soul kiss between John Lee Hooker and Lemmy.

    It's all of those. "Wreck My Car" is a modern masterpiece.

    I rather like the Northumbrian pipes. That Kathryn Tickell plays the hell out of 'em, too.

    Now playing: Style Council - Internationalists

    Fox The sound of one hoof clopping

    Spunk: Filtered through friends.

    Everybody's favourite female anarchist chamber quintet. A Rune Grammofon release (so it can be trusted implicitly). A surpisingly effective remix of their LP Det Eneste Jeg Vet Er At Det Ikke Er En Støvsuger (aka: The Only Thing I Know Is That It Isn’t A Vaccum Cleaner) which itself is a cheeky little number from last week's care parcel that was not far from my CD player a few days ago... played by Kristin Andersen (trumpet), Hild Sofie Tafjord (French horn), Maja Solveig Kjelstrup Ratkje (vocals, electronics) and Lene Grenager (cello) and all were recorded experimenting with improvisations and electronics to make an unrelentingly wonderful and uncompromisingly personal music... I still love it how all those instruments can be made to sound like a dozen geese chuckling and clucking away on your lawn.

    This is a remix CD so its got strange stuff going on in addition to the other strange stuff by loads of remix people I freely admit to not knowing (what? you mean you don't know who Andreas Mjøs, Ritso Holopaninen, Sun Demon, Jørgen Træen, or Lasse Marhaug is/are?) -- fave so far is Fjernfjernkontrollkontroll, Feil Remix -- a cold hard ambient soundtrack with gnomes in it (so it cannot be all bad) I have typed Fjernfjernkontrollkontroll correctly (twice now) so I clearly need to have another huge glass of this red stuff. Cheers.

    Just been listening to a recording of last night's Takacs quartet's concert - Bartok's 6th, Mozart's D minor quartet (both sublime), and Beethoven's op.132 (scratchy and disappointing).
