think i prefer joy division for that tbh. gloom sound of lost romances. Not that I listen to them often but if I want that sort of that drab English feeling i wack em on. unknown pleasures b-side.

This is such a key part of the appeal for me - the tension between the fear of commitment and the possibility of failure, and the freedom of importance. I'll maybe do a thread later, the ongoing wo' of Dido or something

Don't you find that weirdly alienating though? I don't use music as an escape but I don't want it to reflect my exact conditions either. Even the industrial techno/gabber I like has an inquisitive wonder towards the machines. It's why I'm not so into berlin techno cos it's just a pounding kick drum with a few sounds at 135. Should be 786 bpm minimum.

I firmly believe I can get more out of Florian because her music is nice enough. I just can't open myself up to it. I'm trying to chip away at that. and I don't find k-punk's explanation convincing.

When I'm left alone for no reason,
Memories begin dancing in my brain,
My sins standing before me in single file,
As if taking revenge one by one,
I was chained by my heart,
the past being its cuffs.

I became a slave to my feelings,
Mistakes begin with those dishonest feelings,

You're one of my mistakes
You're the price to pay for the greatest sins
It's not worth wasting time on you
You're the murderer of the most beautiful sensations.

I don't want you, nor your love, nor yourself,
I don't want the so-called pink color of this life

Death disco, 4 real.

Around fifty-seven minutes there is a bit where they are dicking around on... I dunno an oud or something. So good.

Nice one, I know Ocora label yeah, isn't it mainly field recordings and stuff like that?
Either way, back to the next section of this mix, I notice Arif Sag will be coming up, I really like this seven inch I've got by him, both sides killer but especially this one


I read somewhere that he later disowned the electric saz stuff... kinda like Dylan going electric and then changing his mind.

Yeah he became a folk traditionalist, of sorts.

In some senses I don't blame him, the electric saz stuff got a bit cliche towards the end of the 70s.

In other senses though, I feel it was an aborted development and a lot more could be done.

Can't say how much the Bob Dillon parallel holds as i never got into him, personally.

I'm not really a Dylan fan either, but I'm just saying that at one point in the mid sixties, as I understand it, the folk scene was kinda divided with some demanding people stuck to the acoustic routes while more progressive types thought it could only advance by going electric. When Dylan chose to go electric it was seen as a betrayal by a lot of people - I think it probably blew over pretty quickly but it's preserved for posterity cos when he came over to the UK and played I think maybe he did the first half of the concert acoustic and then switched over to electric and at the concert that was recorded someone can be heard shouting "Judas" at him and he shouts back.
I believe this happened at more than gig and it can't have been a huge surprise but just cos of that exchange on the recording it's often written about as some kind of pivotal moment in the history folk or something. And when I read abut the divide as to whether or not the electric saz was acceptable it reminded me of that whole kerfuffle.
