Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

Hi Doug,
I noticed you recently played Hum Dono by the Joe Harriot Amancio D'Silva Quartet (I keep track of my dad's radio play now and then). Nice one.
I am Amancio's son. There is a web-site now at www.amanciodsilva.com in case you'd like to find out more on him and his recordings etc.
The word is that album will get a cd release some time fairly soon on BGO records.
very best,

Pretty sure that BGO never did reissue Hum Dono.
