Τους θυμηθηκα πριν λιγες μερες ακουγοντας...αθλητικο ραδιο, συγκεκριμενα ο τυπος εβαλε το υπερ-υπεροχο I Melt With You
Το πρωτο τους αλμπουμ ειναι ο ορισμος του ΚΛΑΣΙΚΟΥ ντεμπουτου, πραγματικα δυσκολευεσαι να διαλεξεις ασμα, αξεπεραστο. Η συνεχεια ηταν σαφεστατα πιο ''φωτεινη'', και εξισου ομορφη
...κι αυτα τα γαμημενα εξωφυλλα του Vaughn Oliver να παρει η ευκη....

Many thks too for your glorious Branca feast.
Any hope to see again some links for Rhys Chatham's A Crimson Grail & the Neu festival you posted some years ago ?
here's Rhys with a new dl link:Διαγραφή
and here's some Neu! stuff (torrent files):
That Rhys is so gorgeous, really uplifting. I just missed the real thing: heard about it the next day! Must have been a very special musical moment.ΑπάντησηΔιαγραφή
Thks too for those Neu! links, I'm gonna go down those torrents: Neu's music always a watery quality to me! Many thks again & have a nice evening: hope you're not losing hope up there in Greece…
If you are new to the music of Modern English, then you are in for a real treat with these albums. I would also check out the This Mortal Coil versions of Gathering Dust and Sixteen Days from the Mesh & Lace album, as in my opinion, these are the the far superior versions.ΑπάντησηΔιαγραφή
Even if you are not new to the band - the expanded reissue of After The Snow is worth getting for the bonus tracks, which includes the 7 inch version of I Melt With You (one of the greatest and under-rated pop songs of the eighties) as well as the two remixes of Life In The Gladhouse, the 12 inch version is for me, the definitive version - and last but not least the 11 minute plus opus magnum that is The Choicest View - I do wish they had released instrumental versions of the last two tracks but that is just me.
00i00 - Great you posted the video for I Melt With You - I can't have seen that for thirty years - can't believe I wanted a hat exactly like that!
