So good to hear from you. Just the other day i downloaded the Happy Ships album via the Shifty site. Nostalgia overcame me. Recorded in part at 11 Wilson Road, yes? I remember your story about Hamish’s tantrum, something about musical competence / incompetence, and, having killed everyone’s creative muse, retires to the garage / recording room to meditate for three hours in the dark.
Remarkable how fresh that music remains nearly 30 years on.
Here are a few songs (very easy listening) for you…
Mack The Knife – A gorgeous rendition by Jimmie Dale Gilmour which i first heard over the end-credits of Un Prophete. Jimmie Dale Gilmour, incidentally turns out to be the little fellah in The Big Lebowsky whom Walter threatens with a gun over a little argument during a friendly bowling match.
Lost – King Midas Sound. Fabulous 21st Century dub
Addiction – Matthew Herbert.
… and, saving the best (and pretty startling) for last …
My Reckless Parts – Bill Orcutt
Cheers for now.
