    I had too much to dream last night...

    I rarely have dreams about music, let alone collecting it. Most of the dreams I remember are typical stuff - hot dogs chasing donuts.

    Last night I had an unusual dream that I think is worth documenting. I was record shopping in a store I’ve never been to. I think it was in the US but in an unfamiliar city – everyone spoke fluent English so I guess I can rule out Brooklyn. The store was run by a couple – husband and wife. She was kind of dumpy looking, dressed like it was 1969. I don’t remember the husband as he was tending to the register.

    It was vinyl only. The store was fairly organized but all the vinyl was displayed in U-Haul boxes – nothing fancy. I kept poking around through the bins and finding various prog albums sprinkled through out. Most of them looked interesting but I didn’t know what they were. I started a pile.

    There was one particular French band the owner said was like Magma but taken to the next level. Very rare. The name of the band was Khantus. Pronounced Khan-tuss (not Can-toos). Think “Wrath Of Khan”. This had me very interested and I asked if I could hear it. The shop owner declined. She said she can’t play it on Saturdays – too many people in the store and the music is much too intense. I have to come back on a weekday to hear it. Since I was from out of town I couldn’t return so I never got to hear it.

    The dream was so vivid that when I woke up I went on Discogs to see if such a band existed. There is no record of a band named Khantus.

    I freely relinquish all rights to the name Khantus. If any musician or band wants to use the name you are free and clear of any restrictions. A donation to your local animal orphanage in the name of Khantus would be appreciated but not required.

    Don’t fantasize.

    I was fully clothed I believe. I had my Tommy Johns on under my jeans.

    Weirdly, last night I had a dream in a similar vein.

    I don't have such a detailed remembrance of it, but I was definitely at a place with people (I think in a basement in someone's house) and discovered an album that was a John Zorn soundtrack. Being a zorn fanboy, I was surprised that I never heard of the album (or the film). I wish I could remember the name of the album/film, I think it had some 'z's in the name, but alas....I spent some large amount of time in dreamtime trying to find a way to play the album (and stumbling upon various dream bugaboos) but eventually I did manage to find a CD player/boombox and started it up. The small bit I heard I enjoyed...it was performed by a rather large band, starting off with a group of people playing various percussives (mainly woodblocks and metal bits). (Also, for some reason at this time, I remember seeing people play it, and it was made up as a fairly large production, but was presented as a slow motion black and white film reel type image. Anyway, I only got about 30-45 seconds of this, before something happened and I got distracted/woke up.

    I did have to think about it a little bit upon wake up if this thing actually existed.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

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