That's more like... "duhhhna kehn" James innit?

On the subject of Doric - and at the risk of cluttering up the music thread with chat and recs...

A student gave me a copy of this wee independent Scottish movie.

Acting's a bit ropey in parts but I laffed it up at several points - gid stuff... mah loons

Anyhow...

On a Sunday night, as y'all know, the envelope gets remorselessly 'pushed' - musically speakin.

It's part of my brief, as the cultural attache to the Stenny Board, to post a load of mad shite that you swill-guzzlers at the trough of homogeneous meeja bullshit may never encounter in your normal, day-to-day consumption.

Is it possible to feel nostalgia for an era during which you weren't alive?

Is it possibly just the glorious, soaring nature of the melodies that makes the heart quicken?

Or possibly the rose-tinted/misplaced regret for an era where people seemed to be a bit more civilized towards each other and the world in general?

Is there a real possibility that I'm slowly losing my last vestiges of sanity?

I think this might be the first piece of music I ever remember hearing on the radio.

(Or wireless if you prefer )

Lie back and think of Dublin England

'British Light Classics' is the tag attached to this stuff by shifty, snake-oiled, swivel-eyed murderers of individuality.

Or 'marketing executives' as you prolly know em.

It's very difficult to sell things to millions of individuals - each as unique as a thumbprint or a snowflake.

Much better to convince people to huddle together in wee 'market segments' clearly demarcated by terms like B.L.C.'s.

This is Eric Coates



I really dunno why I find this stuff achingly sad.

I don't care that I dunno like

Positively embrace it in fact

Love ole RVW

Sneered at by 'proper' afficionados of classical music as being too parochial and simplistic

Served in WWI (as a stretcher-bearer mostly) which suffused all of his subsequent work with an almost unbearably melancholy/moving quality (Only IMO mind )

Plus - he couldn't half knock out a tune.

(Older listeners may recognise the theme tune to A Family at War from about 5.40 on this one)

'Mad Rab' Schumann

Nutty as a sack of squirrel shite.

Self-harmer.

Fucked up his own right hand - thereby halting his rise as the foremost pianner virtuoso of the time.

Tried to top himself on at least a couple of times.

Checked himself into the nut-house and died drooling

(and saying 'wibble' I shouldn't wonder )

This is from a series of "Forest Scenes" and is oddly, strangely beautiful.



(I played this obsessively for weeks after my old man died.)

Really, really strange - but still incredibly

Dunno anything about ole Enrique Granados

But I remember a sleeve note on an old Moura Lympany ell-pee I had which described this piece as having a feel similar to "...running one's fingers through a box of brightly coloured jewels"

Impressed the hell out of me at the time

And y'know ...even now it don't seem too shabby

Sump-chew-uss gor-gee-ossity



I can play the easy (slow) bits of this
