Some deep inhereted nature pops out of you guys !

It feels a bit strange, because I have been a deep Progressive Rock lover (way too few of that available in digital format) but did not ever reach out to Soft Machine and all that gang. I recall a few Gong albums and certainly Caravan (and Camel may it suitable somewhat) but really all of these others - none.
It is even so that only a few weeks back I tried a few Soft Machine albums, but I just couldn't like it. Otoh, this is very very difficult because PR stuff like Van der Graaf Generator I also can't play any more. Anyway, that will be personal (or perhaps not the best SQ), so my point remains : why was something like Soft Machine not in my vocabulary back then. Worse : it was. But I just never obtained it. Or nobody around me had it.

Haha, the latter reminds me of Supertramp. That I had many years (4 or so) before their first single came about and they got famous (that should be School - (from Crime of The Century).
See below for their first. Really King Crimson like or anyway Progressive Rock as Progressive Rock should be (in my view).
Sorry to be OffTopic !

Hey Brian, that sounds super !
But if I read correctly you now don't have a wireless remote - am I right ? If I am right then this may be what you want, but later you may come up with the excuse line again !

haha

Happy to report that for the last two days I have been using my netgear wifi extender hard wired to my control/remote laptop. Wife is especially happy that the LAN cable going from the router in the kitchen through the dining room, then up two flights of stairs and down two hallways has been removed. The excuse of "just for testing purposes" was getting a bit old! So now its wireless to the extender, hard wired from extender to the control laptop then hardwired from laptop to audio PC. I believe now that the source of ALL my unattended problems that prompted this thread was the failure to designate the audio PC as a trusted device in my firewall settings in the control laptop.

Whilst posting about good gigs I have been to I thought I should mention a new musician (to me anyway) I came across recently.

I never used to be a big fan of Country (or Western  Happy ) but one of the advantages of years of experience is that you come to know that it just ain't that simple. Its the quality of the music not the type that matters.

So recently I went to the cinema with my good lady wife to see what turned out to be an excellent film "Hell or High Water". With Jeff Bridges (totally brilliant) and a sound track by Nick Cave this is one of and possibly even the best film I have seen this year.

Most of us know the credentials of Nick Cave so no surprises in the great tracks he contributed to the film but unknown to me at the time was Ray Wylie Hubbard.  I now have four albums (Dangerous Spirits, Growl, The Grifters Hymnal and The Ruffians Misfortune). This is proper good quality music. With shades and hints of Dylan, Johnny Cash and some of the great blues artists.

Recommended for sure.

It is not at all just gong over old stuff. And with musicians of this calibre - just great music.

Is Gong on your Dansette too ?
