Heaven Born and Ever Bright

I should really use this thing more, but I don't really have much to say at the moment.

However, I'd like to point out this article about this record, which is a collection of covers of Cardiacs songs to raise money for Tim Smith, who a couple of years back found that a night out seeing My Bloody Valentine can be a literally heartstopping experience. It sounds quite good value to me, if you're into that sort of thing. Which I am.

How odd. The autodetect thinks I'm in Weymouth.

good to see you're still alive ;)

maybe you could sense me playing cropredy fairport stuff and being nostalgic today. this is rare, but it all turned up on my new Mac when i transfered stuff, so i'm probably playing some of it for the first time ever. relaxing.
Yeah, still here.

I was listening to Jethro Tull. A friend got a bunch of us to make up compilations and he gathered and distributed them. A couple included Tull tracks. As it happens, I'm still a bit underwhelmed by Broadsword, but Said She Was A Dancer was better, and actually I don't think I'd heard it before.

Six months until Cropredy. Seasick Steve and Hayseed Dixie this year, I see.

I don't get new computers. I'm a cheapskate, so each one is largely composed of salvaged bits of the one before. Hearing new music sounds like a nice side-effect, though.
Indie fan listens to Jethro Tull. Hmm I thought the Mayan calendar said the world would end next year?

I would suggest you would probably prefer their earlier stuff, Stand Up, Benefit and Aqualung.
Your name came up the other day (only good things said). Glad to see a post from you here!
If they were good things . . . then they weren't necessarily true.
I had no idea. Always been fond of the Cardiacs so thanks for bringing this to my attention.
