the Complete Electro-Acoustic Works is a equally wonderful listen - his classical stuff isn't too shabby either (mild understatement)
such a great addition to the Hall Of Fame
damn that Phil Collins track is good, top share! Liked his take on ACR's Shackup on his soundcloud page too
Now I have something to temper my usual reaction to that mans name
at the Waiata Maori Music Awards their Iconic awards are presented first which gives those artists the respect they so rightly deserve and sets the evening up brilliantly to celebrate the music and the music makers. Rather than at the VNZMA's its so far been the finale when the complete opposite is the result (Toy Love faced the same problems as Shona imo).
Lefsetz has had a few on the money posts on streaming of late... simply stated: shits changed, deal with it
as a music fan... things have never been better... as a industry guy things are getting a whole lot better for most sectors in the biz except those 100% reliant on pre-recorded music as their revenue stream which is fewer and fewer (go figure)
I'm sympathetic to the argument that DC got systematically destabilised by the dirty politics machine.
...and by those in his own caucus too it seems
As a wanna be Labour voter, (ie swing to and from the party depending on candidates and policy), I supported Cunliffe as the parties choice of leader... I don't know if he should be replaced but if its Robertson, whom I don't think is the right choice btw, I predict the exact same series of smears (whale et al are already well down that path) which will return the exact same reaction from those whom don't actively follow and critique the reportage of the party
Personally I'd like to see the ever quiet in these matters Ardern stand up and show herself to stand for something, other than just being there. If she is the future leader many desire, me being one - time to start showing her colours... plus I'd very much like to see James in parliament one day
this is all kinds of good - fun, dumb and most excellent at the same time, his Al Green edit is pretty fab too, actually everything he does by my reckoning
and for some bassbin rattling I've just grabbed and ma tucking into the Digital Mystikz John Peel tribute show
Failed party leader or victim.... of dirty politics?
I'm sure the past few weeks have been very taxing on some of those in the media... but buggered if I'm going to give them any sympathy
Like Jack, I hope you find water Peter
thank you for such magical music and memories
its the old Marbecks/CD/DVD stock not to be confused with the musical heaven that is the recently opened Marbecks in Queens Arcade run by Roger Marbeck.. someone who knows how to retail music
very valid points Ben and Steven, hadn't thought of the bulk and price issues through at all, it was only an afterthought on the medicinal market potentials (for NZ owned patents and products).
Though a quick google suggests there is at least for now a market for exports used for medicinal reasons: http://hemp.org/news/content/australia-norfolk-island-gives-go-ahead-grow-import-export-medical-marijuana
