SESSION 31: At Home With Rose

Cold is a soft thing: pretty drones from Lau Nau to Tangerine Dream.


It's all sweetness and light tonight. Well, with some dark bits of course, because with me there will always be a few dark moments. Just to set off the lighter moments, of course.

Note two tracks by Russian group Stuk Bambuka V 11 Chasov (rus. “Bamboo knocks at 11 o’clock”), from the album “Legkoe Delo Holod” (rus. “Cold is a soft thing”) which came out in 1991. The most information I could find out about them was here. My Russian friend introduced me to them and I must say, they are pretty fantastic. All images in the posting are Stuk Bambuka V 11 Chasov's album artwork.

So what's been happening lately? Well, Dave has been up at the Adam Art Gallery installing his part of the Wall Works show which is the tenth anniversary of the gallery. He's been having fun, and I haven't seen much of him in the last few nights because he's been gadding about, including tonight. Where's my cup of tea! Oh fuck, I had to get it myself. What a bore.

Anyway, the show is open already, as the installations happen. Everything will be finished by the end of the week and then there's going to be a fun party to celebrate the anniversary. Should be lots of fun. There'll be music too - Bek Coogan and Torben Tilly (normally performing as Full Fucking Moon). All the better. Apparently VBC, the student radio station, are broadcasting the event.

Other than that, we have not been up to much. I've been suffering from a sore shoulder and neck, so early nights have been a must. Groan groan. God, I'm getting old! My body is starting to crap out. It's all very depressing.
