Don't worry your brain will come back. It will about the time your kid starts listening to some crap that you can't stand.

Hap Palmer was my favorite from when the kids were little.

Right now I'm into blue grass, Alison Kraus & Nickle Creek.

Rudolf Buchbinder plays Schubert, Impromptus and Moments musicaux.

Teldec recordnings which I was overjoyed to find at Amazon.de at 7,50 Eur/piece - reacqainting myself with Buchbinder, I haven't heard him in ages - he plays with a very special direct and refined 'Anschlag' - almost like Gieseking!

The Electric Prunes - "Underground"


Followed by

The Guru's - "The Gurus Are Hear!"

"Incredible and genuinely stunning previously unreleased US '60's garage psych/punk album (from 1966/67) that blends driving acid punk with trippy eastern raga psych. Imagine The Monks meeting The Electric Prunes and the Orient Express! Originally advertised in Billboard and Cashbox but pulled before release, this is it's first ever official release. An amazing record that should be grabbed by any serious '60's psych collector. Definitely the reissue of 2004. Five bonus tracks are included."

This is a fantastic album.

oh, the other nice find for moi in the past couple of years has been the Yoshida Brothers. These young japanese lads play the three-stringed tsugaru-shamisen as a duo. The traditional arrangements really RAWK, but some of the 'new age' material is rather weak (IMHO). It is an odd sound and an acquired taste...I was won over when by chance I happened to catch them in a live performance (superior to the recordings, too...IMHO again)
:)

"Rock ‘n’ roll is as much about attitude as about music. Take, for instance, the Yoshida Brothers, whose instrument of choice is not the electric guitar but the shamisen. That traditional three-stringed instrument has a twangy, high-pitched sound, which instantly conjures up picture-postcard images of “the real Japan.” The Yoshida Brothers -- Ryoichiro and Kenichi -- have helped the shamisen overcome its stuffy image by updating and sometimes flouting tradition. For example, while the shamisen is normally a solo instrument or played in a group of several shamisens, the Yoshidas perform as a duo. They also dye their hair, which probably irks some traditionalists. The brothers started studying the shamisen with a teacher in their hometown of Noboribetsu, on Hokkaido, the northernmost of Japan's four main islands, at the tender age of five. By high school, they were winning national competitions and soon developed into a touring act. They eventually landed a record deal that confirmed their status as shamisen superstars. By adding elements of pop and world music as well as taking a more aggressive, rhythmic approach in their playing, the Yoshidas have made the shamisen sexy. The Yoshidas – who perform traditional material as well as their own compositions – do a great live show. Ryoichiro and Kenichi play both as a duo and in solo segments, and are sometimes backed by bass, drum, keyboards and guitar."

Wait Wait Wait -- someone give Boonie a penalty for Germanifying only 'part' of a sentence.

(Stephane -if this doesn't prove my German genetics - nothing will :D) ..

Anyvayz - es ist Falsch to be usink- Deutschen Vortz in a Satz -mit out usink zem all za vay alonk.

(Or in short you get the penalty - for not spelling it Kalifornia )

Sorry, probably Ueber-technical I know - but hey wtf - it is my genetics talking -- gotta have it exactly right you know - or -well it just cannot be done ;)

Steve Trauth - er of the Zweibruecken Trauths- about 125 years removed. :D


-Oh and I reckon today's skating tunes are going to be some old Ozzy - something to get me in the proper frame of mind for sprinting and cross over practice :D
