Presumably they picked up on Curlew that way.
    Well, that's lovely to hear!! Thanks. I will pass it on to George.

    Thanks for your recommendation!.
    I have Five Suns and Black Oni: great music!.

    A word or 2 about their oldest material?.

    Thanks!

    VERY much a stalwart Skin Graft-label kinda sound; less immediately zeuhl and more lo-fi noise proper. Worthwhile at large (if you dig that sort of thing), but really not the same deal.

    They move into more proclaimed "progressive" terrain with Great Sage, but it's not as meticulously assembled as the material on later records. Relatively interesting for what it is, though!

    We had a wonderful catch - up conversation about a year ago on the phone and there's sometimes an email flying one way or the other....



    Is this actually true? I certainly had no idea and I know that George has NO idea and he would love to hear about this if you have ANY links.

    Sadly, I thought Curlew were mostly just forgotten now....
    ... and I think George sort of feels the same way....
    Not forgotten by me. I love Curlew.

    There's a book I read a while back called Stir it Up that has a chapter on Curlew.

    Damn! Thank you. I looked this up - I had NO idea! Gene Santoro! For $6.43 I just bought a 'used like new' copy.

    Thank you again for this tip.

    Couldn't really say it better. I still find Great Sage to be worth the odd spin. I would say hear it and work backwards from there if it grabs you.



    They were always intense.

    Did Cora release any albums of solo cello music?
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    Yes. Gumption In Limbo and Live At The Western Front.

    Surprisingly (to me) Live just was released on CD in the last 18 months or so.

    'Live in Berlin' is a fabulous record. After wearing my original vinyl copy, I bought a CD version. I still play it and enjoy it. Besides Cartwright and Cora, Wayne Horvitz' appearance with the band in this live setting is a major asset for my high rating.

    I decide to jump for the Ahvak record. I figure I can spare another five bucks. Was this particular weekend deal available yesterday? I didn't think about it when I was putting together my shopping list for yesterday's "all profits go to the artists" sale. Oh well.

    See my post in the Bandcamp thread wherein I confess to being a big dummy. Oh, well indeed.

    Glad to have it: this is my fifth Muffins and I also own "Manna/Mirage, Chronometers, <185> and Double Negative".

    Great music IMO!
