    I guess I should read back in a thread before I post.

    My copy of Letters to Thurza arrived today. What a great find. Thanks for recommending it.

    If the handwritten number on the enclosed postcard indicates order of purchase, I'm #13.

    I never read that he said he was inspired by gamelan music, but i'm pretty sure he must have heard most kinds of percussion music.

    I can't remember having read that either, but the percussion reminded me on gamelan music. (Nice work with electronic drums)

    Mick is featured on the new album from Genre Peak, "Your Sleekest Engine".

    Martin Birke, the band-leader, is a great fan of Mick and I guess he had an old recording of him, which he incorporated in the track "Nightfalls".

    Other musicians are amongst others Mick's old Japan-colleagues Steve Jansen and Richard Barbieri plus Jon Hassell (on one track).

    Metronomy's Mick Slow is based on, Weather The Windmill, a track from Mick Karn's solo-debut:

    Excellent musician. I love his work with Torn, Japan, etc. I also have a couple of his solo records, Bestial Cluster and The Tooth Mother. Somewhere around here, I have bootlegs off three shows the Polytown trio played, back in 94 or whenever it was.

    Thanks for posting this. As much as I thought I knew about Mick Karn, I was unaware of this recording. I just ordered one online.

    Cool. I found out about it a few years ago when I went through the impressive Discogs-list of his credits: https://www.discogs.com/artist/45127...0&type=Credits
    Back then there wasn't a youtube-clip to hear what it sounded like, but a some weeks ago there were these to video's. Wonderful playing.

    Yes, definitely get The Tooth Mother. I have a fair amount of Japan related stuff. All of those guys, Mick in particular, have put out some very interesting work throughout the years. Jansen, Barbieri and Karn's release: Lumen is also a must have in IMO, which also features Steve Wilson on guitar. (I think it was already mentioned but is worth mentioning again)

    Good choice. Here's a live in the studio-version of the title track of Bestial Cluster for Dutch tv:

    Lumen is a wonderful one. I first had the original cassette transfered to CDR, later the official LP and then the CD. Here's a related clip I hadn't seen before, recorded in the same period:

    Damn, must be the age...

    To go a little deeper into the recording of this 2 Meter Sessies: Apparently (see https://www.facebook.com/groups/385768124842049/ post from June 9th) Richard Barbieri did have the original recordings of this, but he doesn't have the rights to release it somehow. Funny thing is that the show was sold officially through the Dutch institute for image and sound (https://www.beeldengeluid.nl/); I managed to buy it back then, but at the moment it seems a long way for a release through JBK.

    When I'm not mistaken it's also featuring Gary Brooker on keys.

    Speaking of Midge Ure: a new compilation-box set will be released this month, called https://www.superdeluxeedition.com/n...dvd-anthology/.
    It will feature the single version of the single Ure and Karn released, After A Fashion (so not the great 12#-version), but it will also contain the clip:
