    There was a phenomenal live performance by them available on YT some time ago, but it's been removed since then. There's also an earlier demo, Live In the Basement or something, but I haven't heard it. Apparently there was also a set of unreleased recordings, some of which were rumoured to feature Pip P.
    Oh, that's bad news. Sorry to hear about Jardines. Thanks about the info anyway!

A very fine band but alas sadly overlooked - again.
    Agree w/you Richard!.

    With "Azufre" (2015), their last one, Akineton's sound changes mainly because they leave behind the "jazz-rock and avant-garde" a bit and present a new proposal focused on "afrobeat and calypso" or their daily musical environment; however, Akinetón Retard is always an interesting band to follow and explore IMO!.

    And talking about how to describe their music/universe, I like this one taken from their FB:

    - "Electroacoustic Avant-free rock fascist-communist spontaneous clowny ensemble" -.

    I've been listening to several singles that have been released before their next album and I'm interested enough.

    For example:
    - Abisinia:

    - Plastifilm:

    - Pausto:

    - Cielo Falso: (FEAT. GABRIEL CAÑAS/ ALFREDO TAUBER)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fzx-X73gFJU

    Finally,
    I am watching:

    Live: - AkINeTóN ReTarD en el bar onaciu. - (2012)

    I've been listening lots of News From Babel lately. Lindsay Cooper was such a original composer.

    If you dig Lindsay Cooper and News From Babel, you should check out Cooper's Rags/Goldiggers, if you haven't already.

    Music for Other Occasions from '85 exposes all of her assets and, together with the Babel-work and Rags (plus obviously side 2 of Western Culture), remains her finest stab at anything rock. IMO.

    New tracks from Aksak Maboul, and double LP to come in May:

    This was probably known, but if so I missed it or forgot.

    Hello Folks ~

    Speaking of Akineton Retard... Had the very fine experience in seeing them live some years ago here stateside. Prog festival in California?, maybe over in Mexicali?? Hahahaah I do not remember BUT I still have 'Akarnania' in my collection. They must've impressed me!

    The particulars are getting foggier!

    That Zut Un Feu Rouge reunion record from last year is awe-inspiring. Folx don't make 'pronk' like this anymore, and how could they?

    Anyone come across the group A Light Sleeper? I found them via someone I follow on Bandcamp, it's some excellent material:

    Scrolling through the SZamla catalog tonight. They should have ruled the world. I mean, the sheer melodic joy and vitality of it.

    This particular song gives me a sense of bliss that no other music can give (except Zappa maybe). I just love it wholeheartedly, and suddenly I get a whole heart. Lars is a genius.

    Just bought their catalog on bandcamp, 1 album & 3 EP's for $6 total!!

    Know what else I like, their albums are named alphabetically in order of release, Amicability, Brevity, Concision & Distinction, I love that!

    Your and Scroty's posts sent me back to this album for the first time in ages. And I've spun it four times since then. Pure joy! And such an antidote to the idea that challenging music has to glower at you.
