    Plague Mass by Diamanda Galás (1991). Picked up on CD via Amazon marketplace - I've been catching up on some Diamanda Galás recordings I didn't pick up at the time of release. Pretty harrowing stuff as usual for Galás - this is a live recording made is a cathedral and has a kind of echo quality.

    New single from Evil Blizzard - Unleash the Misery. Limited edition 7" vinyl, comes with download code, photo insert and sticker. Evil Blizzard have four bass players, wear bizarre stage getup and reputedly don't rehearse. They make a fine racket!

    I was listening to one of the excellent interviews on Steve Dawson's music podcast, this one with Billy Bragg, the great English punk/folky/rocker. You can get this one or any of them on iTunes or at www.stevedawson.ca. They're called Music Makers and Soul Shakers podcasts.

    After listening to the interview, I was compelled to listen to one of my older favorite recordings; Billy was offered a chance to select unpublished or recorded lyrics that Woody Guthrie had written, and to write music for them and record them. He hooked up with Wilco for the recording, the first of which was Mermaid Avenue (two more followed in sequence). It's interesting, in part because of the intrinsic quality of the lyrics, but also because the subject matter is a little different. So much of Guthrie's legacy recordings are those folky anthems or the political class struggle thing, but it seems the ones he didn't actually record were more personal, infatuations and stories and general observations. Great stuff, and expertly converted into actual songs.

    In terms of the podcast interview,the stories and insights into music creation were great, and it was cool to hear more about Bragg's punk past, and the vicissitudes of fate that led him to have a recording career. The music clips interspersed in the interview in post-production nicely illustrated things.

    So far as the Mermaid Avenue recording is concerned, he music is still as great as I remembered it, with both Billy and Jeff Tweedy doing vocals. This and Bragg's other work, highly recommended.
