Well done to Arty Pharty on his succession to the throne, may his reign be long and fruitful. Now down to business...
Plenty of good choices this month, so much so that i'm tempted to do at least another one but for the first i've opted for 'create a story' or in my case it's a rough musical rendition of the Lord's Prayer. Don't worry, i'm no God botherer looking for recruits, in fact i'm a man with no invisible means of support...
So without further ado here is my mixtape for Knirrie...
The Lord's Prayer
1. Our Father Who Art In Heaven - The Five Blind Boys Of Mississippi
2. Hallowed Be Thy Name - Mary Anne
3. Kingdom Come - Tom Verlaine
4. Love Thy Will Be Done - Martika
5. Planet Earth - Duran Duran
6. Here In Heaven - Sparks
7. This Day - The Sleepy Jackson
8. Take This Bread - The Felice Brothers
9. Forgive Me - Le Loup
10. Trespassin' - Skull Snaps

8 May 2011, 17:03 by Mark_HThis chart shows Prog Rock acts sorted by average plays per listener. An attempt has been made to ensure that the chart is clean of acts that have a minority of listeners who artificially inflate the average play number, but as that task is essentially impossible, take this chart with a large pinch of salt.

24 Apr 2011, 23:11 by toonebThis is the recipe I used to create a playlist for the Diversity+Knowledge Friend Week
1. pick the members of the Diversity Group that contributed on the last 4 pages of the shoutbox.
2. Look at their Overall Top Artists
3. Select 3 artists you don't know all too well
4. Put the 5 Top Tracks from that artist in a playlist
5. Start listening
Here's the list of artist picked with their associated user:
Dead Can Dance
They Might Be Giants
Fountains of Wayne

23 Dec 2010, 06:14 by utopiantheoristI have no idea what’s going on half the time here. Otomo worked with glitches in CDs so early on (this came out in 93) that he needed to explain to people what was going on. What is now an everyday thing was not so common place, even in the experimental Japanese noise scene.
None of this gets coherent. Samples ranges from random Japanese advertisements to harsh noise. There is no in between, no melody, no development. This is some of the most nothing music ever, it is as you’re listening to the sound of infected pop culture.
Despite this lack of coherence, there’s something very appealing in it. Even after so many people have attempted this same sort of fragmentary structure, it sounds fresh. Maybe it has to do with the amount of freedom he gives each sample. Or perhaps by having 77 tracks, some of which are only a few seconds long, things never get stuck in a rut.
Oddly appealing for anyone with an interest in experimental electronic or free jazz (of which it shares a similar disregard).
