    Love Les and Mary. Wonder if they were a big influence on Joe Meek? Just guesswork – I really ought to know more about those sort of things.

    Geoffster – Cheers Geoff. I didn’t go to the exhibition – I decided to go without tired child on Monday as I am unemployed forever as from the beg of next week. Oh the joys of being freelance….<br/><br/>Bettster – Yes – they are amazing. There was a great doc last night about Les Paul on BBC4 called Chasing Sound I think. It is repeated tonight very late – try and catch it/tape it etc if you can. Hmmm…I think you are def onto something re: Joe Meek.

    Paul Ford is 92 years old now, and every Monday evening he plays live the Iridium Club in New York City. He is just unbelievable.

    I didn’t realise Les Paul was a real person until very recently.

    I LOVE this tune – and this clip, been blasting it myself recently – it’s so creamydreamy and there’s something Donna Summerish about the vocals in the middle section (circa I Feel Love).

    PS there’s another Les Paul clip worth a peep <a href=’http://planetmondo.blogspot.com/2007/08/les-paul-hes-real-person-and-hes-still.html’ rel=’nofollow’>here</a> (one of the first things I blogged)

    Cooperman – wilkommen to Romo Towers! Yes – he is INCREDIBLE. What a guy!<br/><br/>Momo Madster – I know – it is so ethereal and magical – like flying around in the stars<br/><br/>Ivan – are you pulling my leg?!<br/><br/>Col – ooh – cool!<br/><br/>Billster – no – I didn’t know anything about him until I saw a brilliant doc on him last week. Up to that point I thought he was just some bloke that made guitars.<br/><br/>Mr Mondomania – I know – it’s incredible isn’t it? Such a modern sound in a way – he was like a cross between a music scientist, a musician and an inventor. I am blown away by Mary’s voice. thanks for the linkage x
