"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Dammit! I'm just about to go and get my lunch, and then you put on one of those gorgeous obscure new agey things. I'll be stuck here for another half hour now...

I long to be a boe-ist.
Avatar 7:24am the Canterbury wood-elf:

@George If you look online, you'll find there's a whole "World Association of Ruined Pianos"! (WARP) They're based in Australia where ruined pianos stay conventionally playable for a lot longer than here in damp SE England...

Cool! Reading about the ruined pianos of Western Australia now.

I wonder if Piano Adoption vets potential adopters to be sure they aren't going to push it off a dorm building at MIT.
