The first live album I was ever blown away by.
When I was attending college in my teen years, I had a good friend, Fish, who had impeccable musical taste. He introduced me to the work of The Durutti Column, and if memory serves me right, this was the record which first turned me on to their oeuvre.
Nearly 30 years later, it still sounds magnificent. Hunt down this album, and hope that Factory will reissue this as a Blu-Ray one day.
Not a true wiki, but a place to house links. If you’re an interesting net-label or a radically interesting band, film-maker or writer who wishes to be archived here, let me know.
Before today, I had no idea who Will Luscombe was. I’m certainly impressed with his choices in jazz!
Resonance FM is quite a site for amazing podcasts.
So much great music coming out of North Africa these days. Amanar are a wonderful discovery out of Mali, published by Sahel Sounds, a magnificent record label out of Portland, Oregon, covering brilliant music out of the North and West of Africa.
