Nice one GS,

I'm currently listening to this guy. Have you heard this yet?

https://youtu.be/rtW1S5EbHgU

Cool, tío  8). In fact, the guy's sound reminds me of the spiritual jazz trend of early 70s (Pharoah Sanders, Leon Thomas, Bobby Hutcherson...) with that choir and the electric/acoustic arrangements. The clip is intriguing too. I'll give a listen to his albums in Spotify.

BTW, Ady, a new, expanded "deluxe" edition of Alex Díez's (Flechazos, Cooper, Purple Weekend) "Club 45" book has been published recently, maybe you're interested in it. The first edition ran out in months!

This track Truth is the last on the 6 track ep Harmony of Difference

It takes elements of the first 5 tracks combines them into a beautiful piece. Better when listened to in sequence.

This is the publisher's link (you have to add the shipping costs to UK, 8 €). I found it cheaper through a bookstore that works with Amazon Spain, but it looks like they don't ship outside Spain  :-\

http://tienda.edicioneschelsea.com/index.php?id_product=25&controller=product

It's a very nice book, crammed with bands' pics and memorabilia, and pretty easy to read for a spanish student  ;) .

Lots of interesting things to listen to after reading these posts!

Not mod at all (except that they´re from Brighton) but Idiots by the Electric Soft Parade is one of the most melodic records I´ve heard in recent years, they really know how to come up with tunes. Quite far removed from the punk end of the musical spectrum but if you like your music slightly McCartneyish you might enjoy it.

Hampshire & Foat - galaxies like grains of sand.

Heard these on Giles Peterson a while back - laid back Jazz/soundtrack type gubbins. Greg Foat of The Greg Foat Group (strangely enough) and Warren Hampshire of The Bees. Great recording.

they seem to have a remarkable resurgence, they we're often mocked in the brit pop years, but fair play to them they are getting a lot of attention and praise now.
Not stuck in the 60's

A mate of mine went to see Shed 7 twice in the last month or so , said they were the best. .
Never been a big fan myself but I might as well check out their new disc. .
I wont make any deals with you , I've resigned. .
I wont be pushed, filed , stamped , indexed , briefed , debriefed OR NUMBERED!

I listened to them a few years ago after finding a fairly current clip on YouTube and it was not bad at all. Must check it out.
Does anyone else remember a poem called Requiem For Britpop or something, it was published in some British music magazine and there was a reading of it on YT accompanied by sombre classical music (I wasn´t able to find it again so any help locating it would be appreciated)? It was lamenting the demise of all these 90s group and it has turned out to be completely wrong, they´re all coming back and releasing new albums and their old albums are out in deluxe 5-CD sets.
