 Actually, I wanted the other one...

 

 

 

 

         
 



Music & Elsewhere The song is "La Lune", the voice belongs to Isabelle Gernand...

Music & Elsewhere Oh, so busy looking at her photo, I forgot the track link, sigh...
Music & Elsewhere Her face actually inspired the one in the desolate sky on the original "Creavolution" cover (see the graphic at the very top of this post, that's her, as portrayed by the excellent Thayen Rich).
Music & Elsewhere These days, she and other half Marc Werner perform with a band called Nude. You'll find plenty of stuff online, just pop "Isabelle Gernand Nude" into Google search... ;)
Music & Elsewhere Great track, very sudden ending! Shall we slow things down a bit now? Then let's pop back to the Stone Premonitions stable (hi, Tim, hope you can afford a house one day)...


Music & Elsewhere The track I've chosen is "Lying Awake At Night", enjoy muchly...
Music & Elsewhere The voice belongs to Finn Millar, kind of a Noosha Fox vibe to it, I always felt, lends a very unique sound to their music. Finn sent me something of a collage of pictures, here they are...


Music & Elsewhere Unluckily, they came to M&E right at the end, their sole release on the label coming in May 2003, our last batch. They got joint Release Of The Season with Glass (who were on The UWU Collection), think they would have gone on to be very popular with the M&E faithful otherwise.
Music & Elsewhere Just a couple more tracks to go, and I do tend to save the best till last, though I've loved every track I've 'played' this evening already! Next up is a band that were around on M&E from the early days and became one of our biggest sellers...


Music & Elsewhere Let's have a right old psyche-out then,
complete with Rustic Rod Goodway on lead guitar! This is "Nightmares In The Sky"...
Music & Elsewhere Okay, not the most obvious choice of band for a female-glorifying session, being the brainchild of a male (the mighty Steve Lines), but as with Sabotage, the band has always been clearly identified with a female lead vocalist. The tracks on the collection are sung by Louise Allen, but I've picked this later one with Melanie Townsend on vocals, coz she's really good too. This is Steve and Melanie, circa mid 90s, I think...

Music & Elsewhere So here we are at the end of another presentation, but this time jumping straight into the next, an American Underground special. So this is a perfect segue, her living in Santa Rosa with subterranean legend husband, Don Campau. Last track up, and possibly the greatest female singer I've ever had the pleasure to hear in all my underground years, this is The Voice...


Music & Elsewhere The track I've chosen for the link to the
American session is called "Ulban"...
Music & Elsewhere This is the lady herself, with husband, Don Campau, and they guy who wanted to marry her but lost out to Don, Kevyn Dymond. Always the bridesmaid... ;)


Music & Elsewhere And this is me serenading Robin at a vicarage tea party in Surrey in 1996... hey, I don't make this stuff up you know!


Music & Elsewhere Lower your head, you are in the presence of wonderment. Thought I'd let her show off a bit by choosing this one. Robin calls this 'vocalised', rather than sung. I'll leave you to enjoy it and get set up ready for my next session, hope you'll follow. If not, goodnight and thanks for listening. If you're coming, next post up... :)
Stupidly long FB link here... (Editor's Note: Well, there was, you don't particularly need it for this website version, do ya?)


Next up, the Music & Elsewhere Collection presents an American underground special. Be starting in around 10 minutes, soon as I've finished with the "Cherchez La Femme" presentation (previous session above). Soon!


Music & Elsewhere GREETINGS, AMERICA!
Be with you in a couple of minutes, still listening to Robin O'Brien from the last presentation, WAY too good to stop the track early. Be patient, make a tea or something... ;)

And then, but a few minutes later...

Music & Elsewhere Only one place to start, I think, that amazing Cincinnati Massive that is...

Music & Elsewhere So let's get the music going, coz that's what we're here for, and the track I've picked for this afternoon from their almost infinite back catalogue is "Knights In Black Steel"...
