Yet another great listen from the Other Minds Audio Archive – an interview with the always fascinating Laurie Anderson. In part 1 of this interview before a live audience of 1000 at the Exploratorium’s Speaking of Music series in the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre, Charles Amirkhanian speaks with Laurie Anderson about songs from her recent album, Mister Heartbreak. Anderson discusses influences on many of the songs on that album including Kokoku and Sharkeys Day. In addition, the composer explains her new albums departure from her last release, Big Science, containing O Superman. In Part 2, Laurie discusses the origins and variations of the song O Superman (for Massenet). She plays a Jules Massenet piece sung by Charles Holland (O Souverain) then O Superman by Laurie; also various bootleg/cover versions of O Superman.“ She discusses the Eventide Harmonizer, the three states of a song while analyzing song Its Cold Outside which was to become Big Science and listen to variations of both pieces. Laurie takes questions from the audience and then talks about writer William Burroughs.
New Month! Here in Glasgow we can that summer has arrived, because the rain is warmer.
Come all ye, gather round, and share with the village what you have been reading / watching / listening to / and generally got up to that you would like to share.

It is the first Friday of a new month, and (at least here in Glasgow) the sun is shining.
So, everyone, please gather round and tell us what you have been reading / watching / listening to / generally enjoying
Also – at the request of @Sewer Robot – is there anything coming up that you think we should know about ?
From the splendid people at Aquarium Drunkard – Absolute homegrown ephemera gold courtesy of a 1972 Germany documentary which finds Neil Young in a honey slide haze on his fabled Broken Arrow Ranch, work-shopping “Out on the Weekend” (endearingly amused by his own lyrics), and hanging with Elliot Roberts, the fellas, the dogs, and the cows. The clip also finds Young musing on the imagery of his songwriting, before gorgeously blending a live performance of “Old Man” from only a few weeks prior with footage of the titular muse and Young sharing a smile. More barn, indeed.
This is making my Friday night groovy – Dr John with a great band rocking and swinging in New Orleans
It is the first Friday of a new month – woo hoo! So please, gather round and share with the gang – what have you been reading / watching / listening to / in any other sense consuming ?

As part of “BBC 6 Music In Glasgow” I will be “doing a DJ Set” with Michael Rooney, fellow Primeval.
The theme is “Records we listened to when starting out”
We start at 9pm and carry on until they stop serving beer – which is either midnight or 1am, depending on demand and the mood of the staff.
Sorry this is late – other shizzle going on.
Nonetheless – all blessing to everyone from St David’s Day – and we roll on to March!! So – what have you been grooving to ? Reading / Listening / Watching ?
And – is there anything else you would like to share with the parish ?
February! Already! (As I type, it is the first Friday of February in Tonga, so we can carry on).
Please, gather round and share – what have you been listening to / reading / watching or otherwise enjoying ? And is there anything else you’d like to share ?
Happy New Year, everyone!
Apologies for the delay in posting this, but I’m still in holiday mode.
Anyway – now we are set for the next rollercoaster year, what have you been listening to / reading / watching / enjoying in the last month ? Please gather round and share
Pete Murphy got a security guard fired for eating near the stage at a Bauhaus gig in Boston
I have fond memories of being at the Heathery in Wishaw and hearing the DJ introduce one of their early records being played at the Heathery, with the immortal words “They’re cried the Boohoos”. (Fond memories of the introduction – not of their heavily stylised gothery)
Pete Murphy is beautifully described in the article with the sentence ‘The guard was ushered out and the 59-year-old “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” singer returned to finish the show’
Here we are, nearly through the year. It is the first Friday of the month, so please share with us what you have been listening to / reading / watching / enjoying this month, and is there anything else you’d like to share?
It is the start of the seasonal roundups, and this is the one I enjoy the most. What’s the best thing you’ve heard all year ? It can be the newest of the new, it can be an ancient 78, or it can be some previously ignored piece of music that you only connected with in 2016.
Or, indeed, it could be an old favourite that somehow makes more sense now than it ever did
So – please share, and please try to limit yourselves to one thing (whether that is a song, and EP, and album … or a piece of news …. or a sound)
First Friday of a new month – you all know the rules, so let’s just get on with it, shall we ?
What have you been enjoying in the last month, amigos ?
New month! First Friday!! Wassup everyone?
It is the first Friday of a new month, and therefore time to gather round and share – what have you been listening to, watching, reading, and is there anything else you would like to share?
It’s been a long time coming – I’m delighted to say The Primevals will be playing at the Hare & Hounds in Birmingham on Friday 11th November, sharing the bill with The Black Bombers and The Derellas.
No idea of stage times, so please get there early if you are coming.
