Lots of Scott Walker.

Me too. Just had to listen to ‘No Regrets’ as it reminds me of being introduced to The Walker Brothers as a little girl, when my dad bought a batch of singles being sold off from the local pub Juke Box...that was one of them.

Meddle, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, A Saucerful of Secrets - Pink Floyd

Prepping for the 90% likely eventuality that I drive to Houston this afternoon for Nick Mason.

Jones Hall is a lovely looking venue in the heart of Houston's theater district, but I'm just not looking forward to the 6-hour round trip drive.  Houston has the worst traffic in Texas, too.

I liked about two thirds of the last two studio albums, considerably less of the previous two or three.

My expectation is that they will continue in a similar vein to recent records and the album will be enjoyable in parts but unspectacular and with a couple of cloying tracks thrown in which undermine it.

You may absolutely be excited. I hope you are. I however can no longer reach those heights with Fairport. I was excited about every release up to The Wood & The Wire but that album and most of those which have followed did not really live up to my hopes.

I think a band like Trad Arrr are probably doing what i would like to hear from Fairport at this point in their career but I don't think the current line up have that dynamic. They favour a somewhat conservative acoustic approach.

A vibraphone? They still exist?

This one does, Fiddly made it. You should see sound engineer’s faces when we wheel that baby in.
Similarly, if he didn’t exist we’d have been forced to invent him.
My cousin played one of those in his Aussie Pop Group, the Cicadas, in the 1960s.

On Facebook that Johnny Dickinson has passed, sad news if true tragically young.

very, very sad to hear. A terrific musician and great guy, graced several festivals we saw, always hugely popular

I just received the Newsletter and they seem to be working on a new album.

May I be excited? Are you? Do you have expectations?

What would you like them to record?

I certainly would like Simon to play electric guitar on a couple of songs....
