On the lower widget there is a new tune - A Pyramid of Apples and Pears. The new Tumblr blog is on this URL and it has several new pieces posted in the last couple of days.
I have nearly got to the end of the Trace Thorn autobio. She explains the influences which went into Amplified Heart including meeting the Fairports when they appeared at Cropredy. She is fairly negative about Worldwide but likes the way that they managed to seize the reins at the point where dance music, drum n bass and triphop became more song driven. She doesnt explain where the lyric ideas in Walking Wounded and Temperamental came from. I posed the question directly to TT via Twitter. I don t really expect to get a reply.
Last night Pete and I went to the Stage Door pub which is just down the road from the Old Vic stage door. Rob Thom was hosting an evening. He did an excellent cover of River. We enjoyed the various other acts and the atmosphere was excellent.
I have been experimenting a lot with a trial version of a mp3 to MIDI converter. It is a bit hit and miss but some of the conversions have turned out sounding quite original.
I have found various new bands - Hjaltalín, Tegan and Sara, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and LovelikeFire. The first one isnt on Iomoio yet so I may have to buy a CD.
