Anyway, pretty much all of the music in this thread ROCKS! I was just checking out a rendition of Ommadawn that was played in France by Mike Oldfield and other players in 1981. I'll post it here when the thread needs another boost, it was really interesting and rather different to the actual album in terms of its sparser textures and altered timbres.
Thanks so much!
Yeah, I really liked Mike Oldfield as well, before he started to recycle all of his success albums some 10,000 times...
Since the Symforce-II festival held at Tilburg's 013 just a month ago, I am completely in love with this Belgian band:
If you like old-school, King Crimson-like true STONER PROG, this is a band for you! Their album "The Eclectic Measure" is nothing less than a masterpiece. It's not just me saying so - check out the raving reviews on Progarchives
just to mention one source. Absolutely wonderful!
Okay, the quality is CRAP, but this little vid means a lot to me, as I WAS THERE. Taped at 013's little Badcave venue, bad sound quality, but it surely gives a good indication of the MAGIC going on there that particular night: (not 100% sure of this, but well. it surely resembled that particular night indeed...)
You can't see me, there - I was in the Front Row, and this vid was recorded from the back. I am only 1 meter 56, so that explains it all I guess...
If ever I was there at all. What ever, check out this band, they are GREAT.
