Johan Lindfors posted a link to Big Big Train's wall: Kate Bush, Donald Sutherland, and weird science combined beautifully in the film for her song Cloudbusting. Is this the perfect music video? asks Bernadette McNulty (2 likes, 4 comments)

Silly grin on my face as I typed 'Hedgerow' for one of the habitats that I'm going to survey. I think I know what will be playing in the car :) (8 likes, 4 comments)

Support Reporters without Borders

Mon, 07/28/2014 - 13:56
Every year, some 500 journalists are arrested, 1000 assaulted or threatened, and over 500 media outlets censored. Freedom of information is the foundation of any democracy. Yet almost half of the world’s population is still denied it. Support Reporters without Borders. (This is a promoted post on an unregistered Wallflux-feed)

Gary Buckley wrote on Big Big Train's wall: I noticed in the CD sleeve notes that (starting with Far Skies Deep Time I believe) the band announce they will "return with...(insert name of next album here)". Nice touch, as it shows future planning in place, but is it also a homage to the Bond movies? Also, EE2 states "BBT will return with Station Masters", so does that means Full Power was either a spontaneous decision, or just a nice surprise? Just curious.... (7 likes, 12 comments)

Dick Dapré wrote on Big Big Train's wall: Talking of spreadsheets (which we have been, intermittently) this is the distribution of my rock/pop/jazz collection by date of publication. I realise the absolute numbers are modest by some people's standards, but it's the shape that counts. Until recently it was flatlining, but the renaissance of progressive rock, and my rekindled interest in it, has kickstarted an upward trend. Long may that continue! :-) Anyone else got a graph like this? For the avoidance of doubt, I'd like to say that I on... (16 likes, 7 comments)

Good luck to Rikard Sjöblom who is doing his own last rehearsal before meeting the whole band for the very first time thi... (7 likes, 2 comments)

Link: A Pretty Decent Racket: An Interview with Mark Kilminster of Tin Spirits

Mon, 07/28/2014 - 03:16
Brad Birzer posted a link to Big Big Train's wall: A few years ago, Greg Spawton recommended a "guitar prog" band, The Tin Spirits. Dave Gregory was in it, too. Greg's opinion carries a lot of weight with me, and I think I was the very first North American to order the CD! Anyway, I'm pretty thrilled I had the chance to interview one of my music heroes, Mark Kilminster of the Tin Spirits. The guy is amazingly talented and equally nice. A perfect combination. The new album, Scorch, comes out on September 15 (Esoteric). Enjoy the interview.... (4 likes)
