    Oblivion Sun (2005/2012)

    This is the last HTM related thread I promise. I see the sarcasm creeping in and unexpected it was not. I equate these posts with a certain amount of immaturity I have no idea why.

    Are we just discussing Oblivion Sun then? I quite like them, especially the 'High Places' suite, which takes up half of their last album. Great piece of music.

    Big fan - I admit to liking the first OS release better, I think the music is stronger. Hoping these guys continue to work together and release music.

    So no thread on "Pedal Giant Animals"? (woops, didn't notice your other post. )

    I like both OS-albums, not really one favourite.

    The latest news on the OS-website was that Frank took some time off to deal with some health-issues, while Stan worked on a solo-EP. Maybe Bill P. has some more news.

    All my prayers to Frank that he gets the issues settled. Bill Plummer is the main reason I prefer the debut. His synth playing on that is fantastic. I was sad to see him exit OS.

    ^^ This!

    I like the first Oblivion Sun record as much as the first two HtM records!

    Did anyone buy Frank Wyatt's book "Oblivion Sun: A Collection Of Poems"? It was published by Far Gone Books in 2000 and has a cover by Kit Watkins. There's indeed a poem called "Oblivion Sun" in it, but also titles like "Dan's Song", "Toward Merlin" and "A Certain Whisper".

    I heard Frank has posted something on his Facebook-site today concerning his health. Didn't sound good.

    Well, I haven't a facebookaccount, so I can't check, but this was what he wrote (of course it's possible this was written earlier on):

    "I was poked, prodded, scanned, scanned again, sonic bombarded,
    interviewed and examined all day, and finally it's official. I was
    accepted into the Checkmate 214 Trial at Hopkins, and randomized into
    the "A" arm, which means I will be getting the experimental drugs, and
    at least a chance now to beat this cancer crap in me.
    Writing songs....best medicine ever."

    As far as I can tell, his last post is from July.

    But I agree it didn't sound good.
