Plashing Vole – y traethodydd
I have a Felt mini-LP entitled "Crumbling the Antiseptic Beauty", which must rank as one of the worst title ever.Fortunately it's rather a good album as I recall. In fact I will go home and play it this evening!Robert
I've tried to get into Felt a few times and always failed, it just sounds like a tuneless version of Lloyd Cole and the Commotions to me. But I did find all the entries on Lawrence in the Creation biography My Magpie Eyes Have Seen The Prize extremely amusing.
Totally unconnected to Felt (sorry, never heard of them, I'm a pleb), are you familiar with Henryk Gorecki's Totus Tuus? It's choral, very much in a similar vein to Lauridsen. You might like it.
Hi all. OK, Lawrence's titles are a little try-hard, but there's a certain crepuscular charm to them. The early stuff is a little sophomoric, but I was surprised the other day by how muscular and upbeat the middle period (Creation) stuff is. Must buy that book. And give Lloyd Cole a go - he passed me by first time around.Gorecki - I've listened to some but usually found it a little bland, but I'll have a listen. Thanks for the tip!
