Thanks Keri. Will PL in the weekend. Work drains me a bit right now. (Neato radio show by the way. XTC in there a nice surprise and I can never get too much John Foxx)

It was great to finally get another chapter finished, recorded it a while ago, infact i did two, but the slog is always editing them. I wish I knew how to speak them better, ideally I think the finished product should be a rehearsal and after that I should listen to it everyday for a week on my iPod and at the end of that record it again having thought about how everything should be spoken. I might never get it finished that way though.

Glad you liked the show, I love John Foxx, it felt very different from the psychedelic show. Like that XTC track.

Great reading. One missing word that leaves the full sentence difficult to scan:
At 15:00
sounds like
... does not meet them ...
should be
... does one not meet them ...

Great reading. Nice text too.

One stumble that would be good to edit:
16:46
a repeat of "fear"
..."whose Fear..whose name is Fear"...
should be
..."whose name is Fear, we return"...

and there might be too much space at the end:
33:11
End of spoken audio.
Track should have 10 seconds of silence after that (as it's over 30 minutes) for total length of 33:21.

Very enjoyable all in all.

(nice prog rock thing on the show too . Caught it yesterday. Do a family show man: Beach boys, Sparks, Carpenters, Split enZ, Everly Brothers, White Stripes, Cowsills (check the Park The Rain ... it's insanely pop), The Sinatras, DEVO, the Carter Family. Not the Proclaimers? ... Family harmonies are weirdly different.

Thanks Grant,

I've edited out the stumble. That's funny about the end, there was a slither of silence on the track I wasn't using that caused that.

Nice idea, I didn't know very little about DEVO I don't recall they were brothers. I don't see there stuff in the cd store much either. I think I'd most like to listen to New Traditionalists, I think that's where the critics started to go off them big time.In my last months show I featured Brian Wilson and his influences mainly the Four Freshmen and The Hi Los.

I do love El Greco myself, but wow:
"dreaming over these pictures as the gusts of an English autumn blow the fir branches against the window, as though all that weird population of Domenico's brain were tossing their wild, white arms out there and emitting thin, bat-like cries under the drifting moon".
Reads like some of Coil's best lyrics in the "Music to Play In the Dark" period.
Funny he doesn't mention El Greco's anger. After seeing his civil war etchings I think he has a perfect anger at our inhumanity . White hot.
Great read by the way. Powys always uses the least guessable but just right word next. Must be a tricky read.
