    Before we were so rudely interrupted (AHEM):

    Heiner Goebbels: Eislermaterial

    This isn't nearly as scary as it looks, it's a selection of theatre songs by Hans Eisler (1930s) and has actual tunes.

    Right, over to everyone else:

    Oh right, I did wonder if that might be the case. As Giddy Kipper suggests they'd be better off directing their energy into a mighty effort to delete all links and references to Sting from the internet.

    Anyway, my most alarming discovery of the day was this-

    Not a lot of difference there. A shift from dull but slightly noisy generic indie to dull but slighly jangly generic indie. To be fair I'd say the same about most later indie bands. I think indie might be my genre Dylan.

    I notice they played this on Dr Who to underline the Alien in NY theme. Can't say it really added to my enjoyment of the programme, but then I was distracted by the thought of an H and H bagel.

    I believe they are on tour with Rodriguez, who were mentioned up thread. Well, possibly not up thread, but on a parallel thread also known as the 14th playlist. It's a spacey-wacey timey-wimey thing

    You're funny, as they say around H&H bagels.

    (See what I did there?)

    I listened to Gideon Coe's show yesterday afternoon and was surprised I kept wanting to know who he was playing among some more pedestrian but ok tracks.

    My fave discovery is Rangda, and sadly they're just a weirdo bear-like supergroup, so am unlikely to see them any time soon dahn t'Mercury Lounge.

    www.discogs.com/arti...

    whose members are uber-busy with all their other side projects. Great track called Night Porter.

    Also

    The Sinister Cleaners - Longing for Next Year

    Some kid called Jake Bugg from Nottm with a very disturbing US accent when he sings and a perfectly acceptable deadpan, life-draining Nottm accent when talking.

    www.bbc.co.uk/music/...

    www.bbc.co.uk/music/...

    I do love 6 Music, and they deserve their accolades. One thing that gets on my wick though...why is it presumed that for 'nwes', listeners only care about whether Bob Dylan has a cold or not, and whether next year's Glastonbury will have to worry about drainage in the lower filed? It's sort of insulting.

    You see....here we go. This happens to me a lot. I'll hear some great guitar and want to know what I'm listening to and then Yorke's whine kicks in and I run. I can only compare my reaction to his voice to that of Greenjewel's to Morrissey's. I know they're great/clever/funny/brilliant/experimental etc etc, but...but but...

    I keep thinking one day I'll be ok, but I cannot get past his voice; it makes me want to punch him. Shame.

    Am I the only one here who can't stand Mumford & Sons? They're being interviewed on Front Row.

    I kept hearing that stupid song on a photographer's playlist, and now I know who it is, I know to avoid. They irritate me immensely. They were asked if they read the scathing reviews about them, as they get as much critical flak as praise, and one of them said they don't, because a bad review is just one's person's opinion and that the internet is a breading ground of ...opinions. Genius.

    Found my ipodnick, so loading up again.

    The same applies to Elbow, except that they're less lively.

    Hi Bash, glad you've found Gideon Coe: he does sometimes play a lot of whiny dross, but every so often he has a great evening and I come out with a new listening list.

    Quite right Mr Badger. I hate Later with a vengeance. It is as if somebody had a meeting where assorted experts agreed that music lovers who were thick enough to expect a sliver of their license fee to be spent on intelligent, challenging or even just a bit different music broadcasting should be punished. Severely. It draws you in. Somebody must be alright, one of the new bands maybe? Not a chance fool, the new ones are worse then the old ones, trading off former glories is still better than being a low grade copyist. Utter rubbish week in, week out. And Holland's shirts and velvet collars make it all even worse. He should be so ashamed that he never leaves his stately home again. When it comes to talent spotting Jools and his team couldn't hit a cow's arse with a banjo. Now I'm off to listen to Angry by The Bug- They gonna burn in a fire!

    I've come to the conclusion that Later... is the Mojo magazine of broadcasting - hankering after the days when music really meant something. It always seems to be looking backward to some bygone era. No doubt they'd have the Stones, Led Zep and Crazy Horse on every week if they could afford them. Perhaps they should ditch Jools Holland and bring in Whispering Bob instead. Then once a year they plop Dizzee Rascal rather awkwardly into the mix to seem up with it.

    Bizarrely the Grauniad is running a poll on who was the best performer on Later. Last week's results were:
    17% Natalie Duncan
    25% Public Image Ltd
    16% The xx
    19% The Beach Boys
    22% Muse

    So that's three bands of days gone by, one aural wallpaper and I can't comment on Natalie Duncan as I don't know her. This week it's:
    Savages
    Lisa Marie Presley
    Bobby Womack
    Neil Sedaka
    Rudimental
    Mumford & Sons.

    Something tells me that Womack was miles ahead, even though he's about 104.

    Anyway...

    I hope you're wearing a nice flat hat and a brown scarf as part of this new trend for Jarrow March chic. It's reached the world of film too, there are rumours that Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas is soon to star in a bio-pic of Red Ellen Wilkinson.

    I'd like to hear In The Dark by Roy Fox vs Denny Dennis, sounds like it could have a very early dancehall vibe going on. Having denounced Later in no uncertain terms I did of course watch it and here is a brief review:

    Savages- fully concurring with Basia's savaging from earlier on.

    Lisa Marie Presley- Can't sing but obviously has backers who hope that the family name combined with some sub-alt country twanging will earn a few bob. I'd rather have watched a video of her Dad's corpse.

    Bobby Womack: Pick of the bunch but slightly marred* by Damon Albarn tinkling the ivories while some other bloke tried to put Bobby off by making irritating little noises that didn't connect with the other music being played.
    * this should read completely ruined.

    Neil Sedaka: Like a ruddy cheeked uncle turning up uninvited, in his shorts, at a scout camp. Full of enthusiasm but entirely inappropriate.

    Rudimental: Please take Mr Badger's comments and then sprinkle with added vitriol. There should be a special rest home called Sigue Sigue Sputnik Manor for bands who believe that indiscriminately heaping one old style on top of another constitutes originality.

    Mumford & Sons: If Basia did pinch the Coldplay with a banjo idea then she did so wisely. The question now is where to put the banjo? I have an idea and may run a poll in the Guardian to see if people agree.

    Excellent review, Bolshers, and I'm glad I switched off when I did.

    I'm afraid the v in my listing stands for 'vocal by' rather than 'versus', but a mash-up would no doubt be worth a listen.

    Schubert – String Quintet in C
    'Ö'

    Thanks BB, that final banjo-related suggestion has cheered up my day considerably.

    Not to be outdone by Leaps, here's some Czech 1930s popular music - by Jaroslav Ježek [Ježek means 'hedgehog'. I love Czech surnames] who spent the first half of his sadly short career writing serious atonal music which noone listened to, and the second making up for it by writing wildly popular (at least locally) rags like Bugatti Step

    and blues (in Czech) like this one, Tmavomodry Svět (=Dark Blue World, mods; he was nearly blind):

    (this recording sounds as if it was made ion the 30s)

    By the way Petrovic, there IS a flyer and it can be found by googling "Sweet Smelling Swampies and Friends"
