Speaks his mind on music & movies!
Here’s a little music related story that you folks might be able to identify with.
For the longest time I’ve been looking for a piece of music (CD) that just dropped out of my pile. I couldn’t find it anywhere. I turned the house upside down looking for it. I mean I was possessed. No luck. I even started blaming people (My gal) and things or should I say animals (The cat). I’m not joking. I was getting mean.
I’m not a serious collector but over the years I have assembled a pretty good pile of music on different formats. I think a few of you folks out there know what I mean when you can’t find a record (or something less important like car keys) that has just disappeared. It becomes an obsession. This piece of music isn’t my all time favorite but it is rare , kind of an obscure one. And yes I dig it and missed it. I can probably find the music playing somewhere on the internet but that’s not the point. CB likes to go for walks and he likes to take his Discman with him. This CD was one I enjoyed strolling with.
If anyone is still around for the story (CB bullshit) the music in question is ‘The Big Gun Down – John Zorn Plays The Music Of Ennio Morricone’. Some of you will know Ennio from his soundtracks to Sergio Leone’s westerns. The Big Gun Down is Zorn’s interpretation of Morricone’s music from some of the films he scored (He scored many). It’s out there in a good way. Not traditional but with lots of musical ideas that I like. I know a few of you will really dig it.
I had this album suggested to me and am I glad I took that suggestion up. It’s got a cast of many helping out. A varied cast I might add (You can find information on the web if inclined). Shake up your listening and give The Big Gundown a listen. Mike Patton (Faith No More) helps out below.
Anyway , I love the music but the bottom line is. I found it and I am very happy. You know what I mean. I have a few amends to make. The Gal is pretty forgiving but the cat is a different story. Now i f I can just find my copy of ‘Broken English’ by Maryanne Faithful. Did I lend it to any of you? I might have got drunk and misplaced it.
