Six appeal - shadows of echoes of memories of songs

Six appeal
BBC 6 Music is really awfully good, isn't it? I haven't listened to proper radio for ages -- only Radio 2, which is also good, but is more like curling up in front of the fire with port and slippers than going to challenging evening classes.

The best thing about 6 is, because it's a cool music station, I know all the music they play must be cool -- so I don't have to worry about my musical credibility! Today I have liked Supersystem, Ladytron (who I already liked a bit, I think), Martha Wainwright (ditto), Marc Mulcahy, N.E.R.D., and Sons and Daughters.

But, hey, they were playing Joy Division's "Transmission" just now, and just as it went "live transmission", the audio stream cut out. You couldn't make it up.

I don't actually think I have heard of any of those.

On the other hand, zorinth came back from seeing C.R.A.Z.Y. last night [ a just-out Quebecois film about urban teenagers growing up ] and was enthusing over the music, most of which turned out to be from Wish You Were Here. Which he has never heard before because Pink Floyd depressingly earworms papersky, but it was nice to see him enthusing about music of my generation for a change, maybe maybe maybe he's growing out of dissing it by reflex.

Martha Wainwright

Splutter. But, but, but you live in Canada! The clan Wainwright and McGarrigle must be one of Canada's major cultural exports. :).

Love will tear us a new asshole

I've an mp3 of the Ian Curtis special from last week if you're interested; unfortunately it's around 180MB and sounds like it's being played at the end of a dustbin. The last bit might just be to do with the fact that it's Joy Division. But anyway, home taping's killing music. It killed off all the Romans, and now it's killing me. Ahahaha.

If you liked Supersystem, you'll like Les Savy Fav. Fact. Fav.
