bish bosch man

Scott Engel (Walker) has a new track! Two actually! And soon (2012-12-04) there’s his new album! Simple cd or double lp with free cd … incorporating the video. And what not. Clever 4AD merchandising. Pushing sales from advanced and regular markets. Ah, fans. But it’s the music we’re curious for. You can listen to a second track at http://pitchfork.com/news/48512-listen-to-two-tracks-from-scott-walkers-new-album/ while you digest this must read interview : http://thequietus.com/articles/10908-scott-walker-interview

daan’s belgium

What with Daan Stuyven’s “Het België van” documentary on VPRO (2012) getting praise, it’s time to dust off Didier Verbeek’s 2004 documentary for RTBf tv. It’s wonderful, and it’s also available on der Daan‘s Cameradvd + cd (2006-06). Below’s a link to the 2009 Belpop documentary on VRT (Canvas) as well. Let’s hope the VRT won’t move the link (from the Canvas site to the Cobra site) to yet another site. (VRT urgently needs to rethink its ramshackle online policy.) 2013-02-02 update: it’s out on VPRO dvd cf. http://winkel.vpro.nl/het-belgie-van

new bill fay album

Billfay0Billfay1Billfay2

Yay! Dead Oceans have just announced a new Bill Fay album for 2012-08-21: http://deadoceans.com/blog/2012/05/dead-oceans-welcome-bill-fay-first-studio-album-in-over-40-years-out-august-21/ + http://deadoceans.com/artist.php?name=faybill … which is utterly wonderful!! Yet “Life Is People” won’t be the first in over forty years. The Still Some Light2cd from 2010 featured one disc of carefully crafted new songs so that makes “Life Is People” the first new album in a mere two years ;-) And before the 2009 recordings, there were the utterly magnificent 1978-1981 recordings you can hear on Tomorrow, Tomorrow And Tomorrow(2005) – imho his very best album … More via http://uzine.posterous.com/tag/faybill

hans fenger’s music project at the langley schools



Once upon a time in the mid-1970s there was a man named Hans Fenger who taught music in the Langley School District outside Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada) … We’ve already reviewed the Innocence & Despaircd – featuring 1976 & 1977 recordings by students of the Wix-Brown, Lochiel South Carvolth and Glennwood Elementary schools – in [uzine 02.06]. Since, George Plasketes has published an interesting chapter on the project in his book B-sides, undercurrents and overtones: peripheries to popular in music, 1960 to the present(Ashgate 2009-06, ISBN 9780754665618). All hail Brian Lind!
