'Ello, here's a bit about me.
From England, been coming to SZ since summer 2005, fell in love with this city, been looking for a way to stay and think I've found it.
I like music, music and, er.... Music! Listening, playing and recording. I love meeting new people, going out for dinner with a group of friends (old and new). Clubbing (Yeah, really! Don't be put off by the grey hair!!) Loud thumping Electro...can't beat it!
Recently bought a piano, will try to pick that up again..its been a while. (More likely to be French Impressionist pieces than Techno though).
I read books, like taking photos, watching movies, traveling..when I have the time, and, of course SHOPPING!!
Feel free to chat, I don't bite ... unless you ask nicely ;)
Hey, Bobby....how you doing? Hey, I lost your phone number. Been very near your place everyday when I coming back from Sea World. I get off at Grand Theatre and then take a bus from there. I been wanting to drop by, but fred told me a while back that you were moving from there. Tell me, how the recording go? Give me your number if you read this....ok?
I remember Metal Dance but couldn't remember the band thank for the reminder. Now that I know I can remember they had a really big hit in Canada If I remember it was called funky junk or something like that. I will have a look to see more. I love Google for recalling bands as with you I have maybe forgotten more then I remember.
Strange Advance had hit called we run back in the 80's and followed it up with the sad heart ache song called worlds away, they toured with AFOS for the eurpoe leg of their tour that ended with the arrest of the keyboard player in germant over a drug charge or something like that.
Kraftwork was one of the most prolific bands of the day, and a major influence that brought about the syth-pop era of the 80's. another such band was the desserters who managed to release one album before they changed their name to Platinim Blonde and started doing police covers after releasing 3 major lable flops in the 80's. This was the time that all Canadian bands were trying to sound british to get major lable attention and they came off sounding cheesy and it really hide their talent. The 80's was a hard time for music as the bands tried to find that new sound that would become the next big thing. Thsi was the time that I was searching through the old blues artists and became a big blues fan and so started my radio show that played blues and nothing but the blues. Thsi show changed the way peoplein my home listened to music and was concsidered fresh and innovative for fm radio at the time, it was shortly7 after that that radio was destoyed by corporate sponsership that demanded only certain songs be played during their time slot. This was also the time that I left radio after seeing it adulterated be mundane music to suit the masses.
Now Bob as I remember it Skinny Puppy has over 25 cd's. yes they are loop and samples kings however they do add some interesting sounds to thier works as as jack hammers and jet engins to mention a couple, they have toured with NIN and ministry and even David Bowie so thier creds aare solid. Oh by the way I am a big kraftwork fan so neu is not new to me. In fact as a claim to fame I had the chance to interview Klaus Dinger in my radio days as they were passing through town on their Canadian tour in I think around 1990 give or take a couple. I also saw Kraftwork play in Berlin when I was in High school in kind of a reformed version anyway. Good call. Now while we are into sythi pop what about Strange Advance from the early 80's two albums both made the charts with numerous euro tours under their belt. yes I know Again with the untapped Canadian bands but hey when you are born and raised in Canada you get the best from all over unlike the americans where they onlt get american and UK artists.
