Whether these obstacles were the repressive, conformist record labels and studios of pre-Beatles Britain, or not being able to sing in key, read music, or play an instrument, the producer/songwriter's apparent motto was "never say never." As these, er, remarkable songwriting demos show, Meek had a definite ear for a catchy tune. He could also create simple, clever turns of pop-song phrase....

Liner Notes There is a very convenient myth that the greatest composers of the past were men whose genius cannot be reasonably accounted for. It is a seductive argument, if only because it encourages a clear and simple view of any musical age, in which its great composers stand our as isolated eruptions of genius. It also saves us the trouble of exploring the surrounding area where, for all we know, we will find only bluffs and impasses. Convenient this myth may be, but there is no evidence...

" This eerie netrelease comes courtesy of newish French imprint La Manufacture De Bruit, which translates as The Factory of Noise (thank you internet translator). Researching this duo, comprising David Vallée and Stéphane F was a bit of a task and I certainly don’t recommend blindly typing Post Mortem Photographs into Google. Still, they got my attention and I’m glad I investigated further. This record is split into 8 movements and one 12 second interlude and focuses on the duo’s...

Grab Bag is the collection of five songs where the piano takes the lead vocal, where chords and harmonics have equal or bigger weight than the melodic lines. As in "The Crowd", each instrument has its particular line, more or less remote from the main theme, and as a whole, the global set shows more than the sum of its parts. Different open chords, adding up, give depth to these imperfect "homemade" recordings. You can hear open-tuned acoustic guitars played from the couch,...

Not to be confused with the Purple Loon, Purple Diver, Purple Grebe, Purple Gallinule or Purple Coot the Purple Duck is the more common name for the best MC in the world. Yes he’s very very good, well hot enough to burn down a herd of yobbo MC's like pieces of wood. Plover fans would undoubtedly remember the duck from his appearance on the seminal ‘Suicidal Rap Orgy’ album ‘ Genital Warfare’. On this his debut solo album ‘Duck Side of the Moon’ we find the less threatening side of...
