Geddy Lee's voice ain't what it used to be, but damn, I still love those guys. I even forgive the Ayn Rand influenced stuff.

Very cool, Zilch. Just read up on the futujara; you can really hear the overblowing, can't you? I'm most familiar with the technique from Ian Anderson's flute playing with Jethro Tull, although that's much less exotic sounding.

A band I particularly like is called Theodor Bastard, a Russian band that combines ethnic percussion – darbuka, ashiko, congas, jambeys and dafs, instruments that are generally quite obscure in the west - Russian horn, traditional Mongol violin morin khuur, tibetian ritual horn dunchen, ancient Russian gusli, cajon, vargan and trip-hop influences.

And now for some real music (!?)

Spread A Little Happiness written in 1929 by Vivian Ellis and Clifford Grey for the musical play Mr Cinders.
Ellis was a man, as was the way in those days, and although he is sadly forgotten was once the toast of the West End, the Andrew Lloyd Webber of the 1930s.
Grey was a composer of words, and like a lot of his kind, loved to write and was unimpressed by the glamour of the theatre luvvie set.
This version is by Arthur Rosebery who was also once celebrated as a great singer and musician. Listen to him, and his personal,vibrant, life affirming arrangements of a variety of numbers, and you will know why.




It's a prefect anecdote to today's gloomy, pessimistic world, with the vanguard of the Enlightenment holding back the forces of Fundamentalism.

One more thing : If great talents like those I just mentioned from less than a hundred years back can be forgotten then anyone can be. Makes you realise just how unimportant we are in the terms of time and the ages.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?Then he is not omnipotent.Is he able, but not willing?Then he is malevolent.Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? (Epicurus circa:300 BC)

Jessica- thanks, that's lovely. And yes- much will be forgotten. But much is remembered too.

Here's some more real music:

Oh, and if any of you are feeling just a little bit too happy, check out what young minds have produced: mindfuck music. You have been warned.

I like it. I have been enjoying brony dubstep over the last couple of years. Here's a tiny sample that starts slow...

Oh, I think everyone should listen to dubstep at least once. It has some amazing sounds and effects. But it's sterile and boring to me after a couple of minutes. I like hearing the human being behind the music, and I don't here.
