Necko, has that got perky beats & rhythms to it or is it mostly rhythmless ambient-type stuff? I've been curious about whether I'd like that album (didn't like representative examples from the earlier Fireman releases.)

Currently listening to Tchaikovsky's 5th Symphony and finding it pretty boring. (I usually try to force myself to listen to a symphony three times before giving up entirely if I can't find even a single movement I think is memorable.)

It sounds more like Paul's solo music under his own name than the other two albums do.

Cool, will probably d/l and lilsten. (And if I like it enough, cheerfully buy a copy when/if I find one.)

Now listening to some avant-garde wind trio piece on a "new music" sampler I picked up for a buck.

Tchaikovsky's Firebird Suite is really good - it was my favorite as a kid

You mean Stravinsky, right? :) I like Firebird too...not as much as "Petrushka" or the awesome "Rite of Spring" though!

Now playing Louis Armstrong's Hot Fives and Sevens...don't know which track but it's wonderful stuff.

Yes, I mean Stravinsky, sorry.  Sometimes I just seem to crosswire things in my brain...

I saw Blue Öyster Cult in concert about a month ago.  One of the people that I attended it with made a recording of the entire show (minus the opening act).  I'm listening to that right now.

The only song I know by them is Don't Fear The Reaper. I then tried to listen to another song, but I hated it so never checked out anything by them ever again.

A song about mashed potatoes is on at the store I'm currently in...

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Oh man, I love BÖC! :D (And I hate that stupid cowbell sketch since that seems to be all they're known for these days by most folks)

Count me in as well. This is not an original of theirs (obviously) but it contains my all time favorite band introduction. Ready to howl??

EDIT: Currently listening to The Beatles Break on WMGK - 'I Am The Walrus' / 'I've Just Seen A Face' / 'I, Me, Mine'.
