NHT045: CLIMAX BLUES BAND – Chasing Change

Hi,

Welcome to this weeks “Never Heard That”.

We haven’t gone there yet, but will today – the ‘blues’!

I have to admit that in the past I only gave the ‘blues’ a cursory listen.

That was until I heard this group – the “Climax Blues Band”.

From the UK, but with an American big band sound, they seemed to bring a real joy to their particular blend of the ‘blues’. I found it infectious and irresistible.

See what you think!

I hope that you enjoy this weeks “Never Heard That”.

Cheers, Andrew Muecke

NHT044: THOMAS FEINER – Yonderhead

Hi,

Welcome to this weeks “Never Heard That”.

I often wonder how much wonderful music is out there that we will never hear.

There can be any number of reasons why that may happen. Language, geography, era etc.

I found out about this weeks band through a favourite artist. This artist chanced on some of their music released a number of years earlier, was thoroughly impressed, then offered support to take it another audience.

Without this occurring, I would never have heard the track that is the feature for this show – “Yonderhead” by Swedish band Thomas Feiner & Anywhen.

And I am very thankful that I did!

See what you think.

I hope you enjoy this weeks “Never Heard That”.

NHT043: ROBERT FRIPP – Water Music II

Hi,

Welcome to this weeks “Never Heard That”.

Our focus for this show is on UK artist Robert Fripp.

Robert Fripp is a highly respected guitarist and his long-time enterprise “King Crimson” is certainly considered to be at the very top end of musicianship.

Today however, we are going to listen to another side of his musical DNA – the ambient side fuelled by his invention, ‘Frippertronics’.

‘Frippertronics’ is gentle, tranquil, evocative and trance inducing….see what you think!

I hope that you enjoy this weeks “Never Heard That”.

NHT042: THIS MORTAL COIL – Barramundi

Hi,

Welcome to this weeks “Never Heard That” show.

“This Mortal Coil” is associated with UK record label 4AD.

4AD boss Ivo Watts-Russell, wanted musicians signed to his label to work with members from the other bands on the label. The idea being to see what would come from them working outside of the confine of their normal bands.

The first “This Mortal Coil’ album called “It’ll End In Tears” is a very impressive dream-pop album.

It also gives fans a chance to hear some high-profile alternative bands from the early 80’s playing together in unique combinations.

I hope that you enjoy this weeks “Never Heard That”.
