    Having a bit of a soft spot for pre-Animals Pink Floyd, I noted a double albumLive in Montreux 1970 on sale via various mail order shops. Seems to be a bootleg of some kind, and anyway a longer version is available on YouTube, so I didn't order a copy. Quite a nice recording, which I think originated as a radio broadcast. Two versions of Atom Heart Mother on YouTube!

    I've been playing last year's eponymous EP by Holy Tongue. Holy Tongue is another collaborative venture including percussionist Valentina Magaletti, who I first encountered as part of Tomaga. This record has a fabulous percussive dub feel to it, rather reminiscent of 23 Skidoo.

    Harmony, by Bill Frisell

    Petra Haden (daughter of jazz bassist Charlie Haden) is a real discovery for me. An excellent violinist as well as a very fine singer, she has been all over the NY music scene and beyond. She is a triplet, and along with her two triplet sisters has performed in a variety of contexts as the Haden Triplets. These include a stint in the Tony winning musical Hadestown. In this recording with Frisell she does excellent vocal work, and the overall album is both charming and musically potent. Frisell is at his usual best.

    One of my customers' son's plays in this new band. Very reminiscent of Talking Heads I think - https://open.spotify.com/album/5TUbU...iqPLCEpjE&nd=1

    I've been playing Turn My Dial, an album of mostly unreleased alt-pop gems by the teenage Australian group Tangled Shoelaces. They were only active between 1981 and 1984, but to my ears seem to have a cracking ability to turn out neat little pop tunes. Some songs remind me of Wreckless Eric... My physical copy should arrive next week. Also on Spotify and probably other streaming platforms.

    I’m not a big Classical fan but tonight I shall be listening to The First Night of the Proms 2021 on BBC R3 via the BBC Sounds plugin.
    It’s the first concert in front of a full audience at the Royal Albert Hall since March 2020. I was at that last concert on Fri 13 March 2020 to see Bryan Ferry. I’d love to be there again tonight but I’ll have to make do with the BBC coverage. Seems somewhat poignant to me.

    I just bought a UFO202 from Amazon with the idea of recording from my Rega Planar 3. It seems to work OK, it would be nice to have a slightly higher level into Audacity though. When I got the turntable out of the loft and powered it up it didn't sound too bad at first then half way through the first side of an LP it suddenly slowed down to the extent a 4 minute track lasted 4 minutes 20 seconds. Just got a new belt also from Amazon and normal service has been resumed . I think I'll re lube the bearing as well.

    Some time back I bought a Rega Fono phono stage that has a USB output and use this for recording to my MacBook.
    The Planar 3 has an alloy subplatter now, and I replaced the motor with one of the newer 24V motors after the original (then 20-odd year old) motor started conking out. I have the Neo PSU which allows some quite precise speed adjustments - and easy switching between 33 and 45rpm.

    Anyway, I have been playing these on recent rotation:

    Jackie Leven - Straight Outta Caledonia - a compilation of Leven's songs. His output was immense, this just skims the surface I think.

    Tangled Shoelaces - Turn My Dial Jangly punk-pop from the early 80s form a very youthful group.

    Subway Sect - Moments Like These a new release from the seemingly indefatigable Vic Godard who, back in the day, was in the vanguard of punk rock.
