    By coincidence, I bought this a couple days ago.

    Would love the Eastman disc. Doesn't appear to be on Amazon yet. There are precious few recordings of his works, but they're growing in number rapidly.

    What's its relationship with this one (which I own, and is a decent listen).

    Well it's from the label so I doubt it. But I don't own it.

    Here it is on the label's page. Femenine

    Still Way (Wave Notation 2), by Satoshi Ashikawa

    Both were a part of the Wave Notation series, which also included Satsuki Shibano's Erik Satie (France 1866-1925):

    T.G. Olson - The Complete Blood Meridian For Electric Drone Guitar -- in which a bloke improvises hellish soundscapes scored to Cormac McCarthy's violent and hallucinatory Western novel Blood Meridian. Each track represents a chapter of the book, apparently. Expect lots of solo electric guitar and feedback, occasionally with some acoustic guitar and other effects. Over four hours worth! Gunna be a long night. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp.

    Tempting concept. Let us know how you get on with it.

    Chock full of big fuzzed out distorted guitar. Sounds like Neil Young jamming on Old Black as the sun goes down at Monument Valley. Not atonal or particularly avant-garde, except for the epic length. I read the book recently but dunno how the music relates to it except in a general 'lonely desert blues' aspect.

    Big thumbs up from me. But you can stream or download from Bandcamp for nowt and judge fer yerself.

    Fabulous twofer putting together the first 2 CD-era compilations, Sugar Fish Drink and Large Ladies With Cake In The Over. Perfect introduction to Steven Stapleton's universe. Also has a couple of edits and mixes unavailable elsewhere (outside of the original CD editions, that is).

    Astral Plane Crash

    Henry Kaiser’s trio with Damon Smith & Weasel Walter merged with Vinny Golia & Ra Kalam Bob Moses

    Sounding amazing so far. Looks like a 44 minute piece followed by a 35 minute piece.

    Si...tonight I went to Cafe Oto to listen to John Tilbury perform John Cages's Sonatas and Interludes for prepared piano.

    It's not a piece I've heard before being a bit of a novice where Cage is concerned so was unprepared for the sounds that I heard. Wonderful. I've just bought a reissue of Tilbury's 1974 performance of it on Ebay.

    And I got to talk to the pianist afterwards...

    I was lucky enough to hear Tilbury play these pieces in Glasgow about 8-9 years ago, preceded by an interview in which he came across as thoroughly likeable. Also got to hear him play Triadic Memories sometime around the late 90's (I think maybe '99).

    Also last night I had a browse through the vinyl racks and found this - new from Rough Trade comprising the original 1979 Incus album plus two sides recorded around the same time for the BBC programme Jazz in Britain.

    Not sure why it didn't rate a mention in Ben Watson's book about Bailey as it's a great listen.
