NHT009: RICHARD BARBIERI – Light On Glass

Hi,

To a lot of people, the advent of the synthesizer in the late 70’s and particularly the early 80’s, was considered a blight on modern music.

It was seen as something that took the “talent ” out of the fine art of music making. No matter what your thoughts are on that, I am hoping that you will finds this week’s “Never Heard That” show very interesting.

This person could have a business card imprinted with his career described as “sound designer”. His name is Richard Barbieri and he really knows how to get the very, very best out of a synthesizer!

Have a listen to this weeks “Never Heard That”.

Cheers, Andrew Muecke

Hi,

This weeks “Never Heard That” highlights the wonder of the UK band, Cocteau Twins.

Another unique and experimental band – they absolutely sound like no one else.

At least in this song, ‘Iceblink Luck’ the vocals are sung in English – I think! Enjoy ‘Cocteau Twins’ on “Never Heard That”!

NHT006: ELVIS PRESLEY – Crawfish

Hi,

Welcome to another “Never Heard That” show.

I must admit that this relatively obscure artist and his track from 1958 is a bit left-field but what I am hoping is that it will prove to you that great music has been around for a long time and sometimes comes from surprising and unexpected sources!
