What are you listening to right now?

In my humble view one of his best works. Oldfield admits to having become very interested in the sounds of heavy rock about thismtime, and it shows in places.

Sinead O'Brien. She's my favourite new artist. 

It's almost like she's the Irish granddaughter of The Fall 👌

Upon folks' ears my babes are hung

Rhythmically they live among

And grow but don't get old"

The Woodentops album "Giant", after getting a promo e-mail for their gig at local venue. Didn't know they were (still?) active. Got gig ticket, then listened to album thinking hope I still like it. I do - here's a track :

Sparks for me today.

I'm blaming 🤞 I love that Ron's keyboard says Ronald instead of Roland.

First time I've seen the Woodentops named on BC. One of the most underrated of all 80s bands. Peelie was a big supporter of them. The drumming is especially great and IMO this is one of the great 'lost'  albums. Brilliant from start to finish.

That is brilliant. Does Mrs Riva have another suggestion?

It doesn't get as many outings at it once did, but I am today listening to my lifetime favourite album.... Grotesque (After The Gramme) by the Fall.

Here's the opening track, the Fall at their most uncompromising - Pay Your Rates, followed by a contemporaneous single bundled onto the CD version - Totally Wired... more of a gateway drug into the Fall and featuring a cracking bassline.

Wow. Love this! Moving from the US to Arcachon in 6 months. Once we're able to head back to the music venues (the lucky ones still in business :( ), I hope she plays around Bordeaux. I'd love to see her live!

She’s been playing this album today - singing along to this track in particular... “read all the pamphlets and watch the tapes”.

It makes quite a nice backdrop to home working!
