Delph, check this out - Rachael Unthank & the Winterset

Postby Louis P. Burns aka Lugh » Sat Sep 13, 2008 12:47 am

Hi Delph :D ...

I'm sitting here tweaking Sensitize © and watching the Mercury Prize Awards on BBC2. They've just had the most amazing female quartet on from the North-East of England called Rachael Unthank & the Winterset.

They performed a cover version of a traditional English Folk song that was frankly, mind-blowing. In their follow-up award acceptance speech they spoke of wanting to keep old English Folk songs that have been handed down for generations alive. An admirable goal in my opinion...

Here is a small interview with them from last week when the Mercury Prize Awards' show was recorded:

I think the comment from laseruser is very true:


laseruser on YouTube wrote:Just been listening to her album the Bairns, bloody brilliant me thinks. Nice to hear some English folk that's comparable to what we hear from our Scottish and Irish cousins


This next link will take you to their website where you can listen to extracts from their 2005 album - Cruel Sister:

Here are Rachael Unthank & the Winterset performing Blackbird (not The Beatles' song) Please note that the sound quality is a bit off on the next few links:

I am completely hooked and will be buying a copy of The Bairns as soon as it becomes available (couldn't find it on amazon.com which is odd. It's listed but leads a dud link currently). The catalogue number for ordering The BAIRNS is;

Richard Wright - founder member of Pink Floyd dies at 65...

Postby Louis P. Burns aka Lugh » Tue Sep 16, 2008 12:45 am

Cahal Milmo, Chief Reporter of The Independent wrote:Pink Floyd founder member Richard Wright dies at 65

Richard Wright, the self-taught pianist and founding member of Pink Floyd whose keyboard playing and compositions were at the heart of the band's classic albums, has died from cancer.


The 65-year-old musician, originally considered the leading musical force in the band before leaving after falling out with the singer and bassist Roger Waters, was diagnosed recently with the disease and died after a short illness, according to his spokesman.

His death came just days after David Gilmour, the band's lead guitarist, declared that a one-off reunion by the group at the Live 8 concert in 2005 was the last time he would play with the band.

Wright wrote two songs on the 1973 concept album The Dark Side of the Moon.

A spokesman for Wright, who had three children, declined to give further details about his illness. He said: "The family of Richard Wright, founder member of Pink Floyd, announce with great sadness that Richard died today after a short struggle with cancer. The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this difficult time."

Dead Can Dance - Rakim

Postby Louis P. Burns aka Lugh » Wed Sep 17, 2008 3:57 pm

I totally love Dead Can Dance. I've played this about 3 times today;

Dead Can Dance - Rakim (From; Towards The Within, 1993*)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Do5vj3D-OD4

Further reading:
Lisa Gerrard (female vocalist in Dead Can Dance) website wrote:Dead Can Dance has quite a few references to Oceanic Mythology, RAKIM is the carpenter god of the Ponape island in the Caroline Islands in the Pacific Ocean, near the Philipines I think, who helped the people there build their canoes and houses. I'm not sure about the "rainbow" part, but I think it's a nickname or translation of RAKIM. As in rain-bow or a canoe that flies (in the rain?).

Temple Hedz - Closer (due for release; April, 2010)

Postby Louis P. Burns aka Lugh » Tue Feb 09, 2010 6:16 pm

I've been playing this a helluva lot since Edensounds (one of our members, who worked as a photographer on the video for it) linked me up to it over on his YouTube channel at the weekend. I'm inclined to agree with him that this song and its video are both winners:



Closer is really growing on me and I love that lyrical hook; "Wake up the senses" too. Anything that stirs us to feel life more is always fine by me. Major kudos to everyone involved on the production. It rocks. If Closer is a marker to what the album is like, then it's definitely on my 'must haves' list.

I'm hopeful some of my friends who work in broadcasting and journalism are reading this thread and playing the video too. They could and should be pushing this one, not just because they like it, but because talented musicianship and songwriting like this is what will ultimately be the death of Simon Cowell's pointless career...

This lad needs some exposure. It'd be great to see him on Later With Jools Holland. He deserves a break...
