Gen 28 2009, 16:59This just has to be the best version of the Isle of Everywhere riff ever (link is to album version btw as this version not on last.fm). The flute solo is gorgeously sophisticated, then Theo takes over with mellifluous ease on the Sax, swooping and diving all over the gong-o-sphere, before Steffe steps in and rips it up on the guitar solo. The rhythm section grooves like a well oiled Flying Teapot engine. Versions like this remind me why I'm still into this band after all these years. This is ecstatic, gorgeous psychedelia at its very best, check it out.
Gen 23 2009, 13:52I'd like to see Here &and Now play this set:
Nude Temple Dream
The Only Way
Ways to be free
Love of this world
Fire in the sky
Jaques Cousteau loves anchovies
The end of the beginning
What you see is what you are
With lots of Jamming in between. Wouldn't that be great?

Lug 5 2008, 9:39I made my way into the NME this week. Sadly nothing to do with music, but I got my photo in the Glasto top 10 tents article (No 10!). Not exactly the most flattering article, but what would one expect from the NME anyway? Check it out!
Mag 28 2008, 7:11I just listened to The Monkees' theme tune again and I still like them more than I should. They were one of the few bands I was into at the time, although I guess I must have been watching the Saturday morning re-runs. I remember liking Slade at the time (I was 5 OK?). Shame The Monkees never got taken more seriously. Boyce and Hart wrote some excellent songs themselves and then collaborated with the best songwriters of the time. They weren't political, they didn't appear to do religion or have any dramatic drug problems.
