Thanks for asking, mate.

Most recently, Abducted and Implant by Eat Static, which I hadn't heard in years. Absolutely amazing, even in the spare room on half a pint of cider rather than off my face in a field in the middle of nowhere.

Last night, Rite and Rite 2 by Julian Cope, which arrived on Saturday along with some other Copey stuff. Just as good as I'd heard.

Oz (formerly Nizzy but I had to reregister).

Right this second, Kraan - Wiederhoren. Weird German jazzy / rocky kinda stuff. Strange, but good.

Wow - I used to work with a guy who had reviewed LPs for the Daily Record in the 70s. He had loads of promos lying about the house and brought in a Kraan live one for me as I'd been talking about Can, Amon Duul etc.
I don't remember much about it other than there was loads of sax on it and a song called Andy Nogger, Superhero or something. :lol:
They obviously weren't considered cool enough to include in Cope's book (although a lot of the stuff he recommends, including the Cosmic Jokers and Guru Guru albums I bought were crap). Bah, stupid personal heroes.

Yes you're quite right. The album would have been Live 1974 and the song is called just Andy Nogger. Apparantly it's a stab at mass consumerism. I discovered them after a spell in Germany where they are obviously much better known. Have to disagree with you about Guru Guru though, I think at times they are fantastic and to see them live, especially at a festival is one hell of an experience. If you get the chance have a listen to Kanguru, 2000 Gurus or Wah Wah, or even better, if you have 30 quid you don't know what to do with, then grab a copy of the triple live set 30 Jahre Live. I think that will change your mind. Think I'll get even stranger now and put on some Faust. :D :shock:

In the car, we have Goldblade - "Rebel Songs" John Robb (ex Membranes) fronting this brilliant punk rock band
In the Kitchen we have Jim Murple Memorial - "Play The Roots"
Astoundingly wonderful jamaican R&B band from France, there's Blues, Jazz, Easy Listening, Jamaican R&B, Mento, Ska, Reggae, Rocksteady and all kinds of wonderfulness played low-fi in there.
on the big stereo (which is off right now because coronation street is on :roll: ) is Dropkick Murphys - "Sing Loud, Sing Proud" Brilliant, just f-ing brilliant Punk/Irish/Rock band from Boston Mass, the home of so many of my fave bands

Right now I'm listening to "Solar Music Berlin" on disc 1 of the Grobschnitt release "The International Story." This is the best version of that song ever released.

Cheers, mate. I've only heard the first album which Cope raved about and was just really disappointed. Same with Electronic Meditation. Maybe they need another chance.
