i did not know SR made music or film
Early Peter Greenaway shorts programmed along with new alternative music works by Malcolm Le Grice, Stephen Dwoskin and Simon Reynolds.

Look a bit further down and the mystery resolves - it's a chap called Simon Reynell. One of my many near-namesakes e.g. Simon Raymonde in the Cocteau Twins. The discrepancy between how the name is rendered at the top and in the copy below is really sloppy.

I did notice an Imdb mention recently - Simon Reynolds playing Self - in a film called How The Brits Rocked America.

Talking head doc job presumably, have no recollection of speaking on this topic.

yeah love having the blissblogosphere around. both for the regular updates and the archive that's been built up over the years. always fun to search for mentions of an artist i've suddenly gotten interested in and stumble on an insighful bit of writing that brings them up. could be anyone from ian loveday to gene clark - there always seems to be something.

I played these to my students in a class on vocal extremes, thinking they'd be blown away - but the reaction was surprising - it sounded grating to their ears, like Buckley was straining his vocal cords - "he doesn't have the right vocal support for that kind of singing" i.e. he ought've hauled his ass over to a voice coach.

smh. the kids!

Greetings from LA was one of my favorite finds this year, scratches the same itch as Tattoo You did years past

Thought this piece on Tim Buckley was really wonderful, I'd been on a TB kick all year but knew basically nothing about his (insane and precocious) life trajectory
