New Fripp & Eno album

Fripp & Eno  -   The Cotswold Gnomes     
New offering from DGM Live for download.
Comparable to Eno’s recent Curiosities series this selection has been compiled by the man himself and gathers together a sequence of sketches, out-takes, work in progress and alternative mixes of which many are being made commercially available for the first time.

Timean Sparkles has a chiming melody evoking associations with the title track of their classic 1975 recording Evening Star, whilst the related Hopeful Timean has Fripp’s sound stripped bare, delicately plucked notes against one of Eno’s elusive ethereal backdrops. It’s simple but wonderfully effective blend.

Though there are plenty of languid atmospherics to go around in this selection, Eno has also chosen to present some of their more rhythmic adventures.

More processed than polished, Fripp’s patented laser-beam soloing on The Idea Of Decline is set against a highly filtered up-tempo bedrock of dub-funk replete with glitches, short-wave radio angst and the occasional choral effect.

Up beat in extremis is the metallic headbanging of Cross Crisis In Lust Storm. This piece dates back to Eno’s abandoned My Squelchy Life in 1992 and also has Trey Gunn on Stick. Talking to John Schaeffer on the WNYC New Sounds radio programme at that time Eno commented “This is Fripp in one of what I think is possibly his best ever recorded performances. It’s an amazing piece of playing. When he heard it after he played it he said ‘that’s the best thing I’ve ever played Captain!’ So it’s not only my judgement.”

A companion piece to their other albums, Unreleased Works of Startling Genius provides a fascinating insight into the artistic processes of two influential musicians at work and at play.

It's both good news and bad news as his financial situation is bad right now and we're his disability money is still caught up in red tape but I am still glad he's getting out at last. he still has more ways to go with his recovery too, but he was walking with a cane last week....

Looks like there might be a webcast of this peformance.... ! I don't have the exact details but they are being worked upon....

Rocket Scientists

Progrock records -  - Due to its overwhelming popularity. the new epic double album, "Revolution Road" by acclaimed American progressive rock legends Rocket Scientists has already exceeded sales expectations prior to its November 7th, 2006 street date. Pre-sales orders have already catapulted the CD into a second pressing, an unexpected feat after the project's 8 year hiatus. [....] Rocket Scientists is scheduled to perform on April 28th, 2007 at the prestigious Rites of Spring Festival in Pennsylvania.

Combining Rocket Scientists' extraordinary blend of melodic and memorable songwriting with adventurous instrumental fireworks, "Revolution Road" takes the band to new heights of artistic achievement. Founding members Mark McCrite (guitar, vocals), Erik Norlander (keyboards) and Don Schiff (NS/Stick) started writing and demoing songs for the album in 2002 and even played some California concert dates. But following the loss of their drummer, Shaun Guerin, the project was put on hold. The three musicians continued to collaborate on other projects including Lana Lane's "Winter Sessions" and "Lady Macbeth" CDs and Norlander's "Music Machine" concept album. Norlander also produced Don Schiff's remarkable 2005 solo album, "Peering Over Clouds". But following the Lana Lane 10th Anniversary Tour in 2005, McCrite, Norlander and Schiff officially reunited again as Rocket Scientists and began to record this new studio opus.

"Revolution Road" brings two new musicians to the Rocket Scientists universe. Drummer Gregg Bissonette, who previously played on Norlander's "Music Machine" and Lana Lane's "Covers Collection" and "Winter Sessions" CDs, brings his dynamic versatility and technical excellence to the band. South Carolina's David McBee (Teer) has also been brought in as the second lead vocalist. McBee's powerful hard rock vocal ethic is the perfect contrast to McCrite's smooth and warm vocal stylings. Together, the two vocalists are a formidable pair that take Rocket Scientists to new uncharted worlds. "Revolution Road" is produced by Erik Norlander, and it contains stunning artwork from Polish surrealist Jacek Yerka who painted the cover to the band's last album, "Oblivion Days", Schiff's solo album, "Peering Over Clouds", as well the unforgettable covers that appear on the many famous Lana Lane albums. "Revolution Road" is a new milestone for Rocket Scientists, and it is one that will surely send the band to new altitudes. The album was released in Japan (Avalon) on September 23, 2006, and is scheduled for release in Europe and the USA on Think Tank Media (distributed by ProgRock Records/Ryko) on November 7th, 2006."
