Apologies for the lack of posting, but work at Eden On The Line HQ is still very much focused on getting the Saint Dominic's Preview book written. Nearly there, since you ask, with the first draft now approaching 30,000 words...
A few quick ones:
- in the absence of new Tunng activity this year, I'm very much looking forward to Cheek Mountain Thief's new album, released this week. It's their frontman Mike Lindsay's latest project, drawn from a spell living in Iceland. You can try a YouTube sample here.
- for a rather different bit of YouTube browsing, how about this 43-year old burst of the Soft Machine, featuring an improbably youthful Robert Wyatt, in great voice.
- and finally, from my Van research, the opening act from the Caledonia Soul Orchestra's European tour in 1973, the rather wonderful Alice Stuart and Snake. Try this... one of the unsung pioneers in women fronting rock bands.
