Again from Port de Soller, Mallorca. I've moved the entire studio,
well, the MacBook, to he other side of the building for SnC
Expecting quite a difference, swifts instead of sparrows plus
whatever goes on in the street below.
No Me Sigas - Freddy Nois
Just a hundred miles or so off-shore is Spain and about the closest
point is Barcelona.

Barcelona. En los ochenta formó parte como guitarrista compositor y

Challenger fleet arrived in the port last night and I was delighted
to spot Scouser Pete, who was my watch leader on one of their big
boats (The Stavros) a few years ago on a voyage from London Docks
to Great Yarmouth it took 3 days and night continuous sailing but I
lost count of how many times we crossed the North Sea. A highly
recommended and life-changing experience.
Natan I Chara - Mediterra
An oud from Iraq, a violin from Morocco, drums from the mountains
of Greece and Albania, a flamenco guitar, a jazz double bass,
shepherd flutes from the Balkans, a trans-cultural saxophone, a
neo-classical piano and - last but not least - prudently used
electronics - they all accompany a voice of Greek-German origin. A
flexible yet authentic voice that paints with all the tonal colours
of the mediterranean: Greek or Turkish, Sephardic and Spanish or
Italian, but also Portugese and Algerian and even from Cuban
overseas, as the mediterranean went there and came back with
"Like A Nomad" Mediterra Musica wanders through the variety of
music styles without excluding the media of modern today. In times
of globalisation Mediterra Musica builds a musical bridge between
orient and occident, between then and now. They use the
mediterranean as a platform to bring themselves into oriental
trance, Balkan euphoria or judeo-hispanic melancholy.
Not only with their culturally shaped personalities, but above all
by their skills they create a very special universe of sound and
music, a universe that knows no time or space, but only is one
thing: Mediterra Musica.

Riding the dune - Double six
Already in the early 1990s, Andrea Soru & Luca Ascari were
collaborating together on a musical project called "Seguira Coisa":
an interesting and original mix of Samba, Latin, Reggae and Rock
Double six aims at making their music as interesting, fascinating
and pleasant as drinking fresh water in the middle of the desert.
They can sometimes deliver an unpredictable blow to the stomach but
overall their tunes catapult all of your senses onto the alert mode
so you really feel the music with your mind, body, ears and
Get Free - Serpentone
Band formed in 2004, with the longest standing members being Erika
(vox/songwriting/guitar-playing/diva-bitch), Cyrus (original
drummer, who has done fill-in work since 2005), and most recently,
the adorable multitasking almost-sober chick-magnet bassist known
as Skot. Somehow, these three managed to eke out time on Sundays
during 2007 to record an album of sorts at Marty Vincelli's "Big
House." Which is a house, that is big. Many amazing musicians have
supported this band by filling the rhythm slots for live shows,
including Carl Keil, Morgan Grace, Sam Henry, Tom Drama, Tim
Flanary, Carl Keil, nolan void, and Susan Costa.

Bizmo Mix 01 - Steven Shepherd
From the Jamendo album Philistinism & Debauchery, which
consists of just two quirky tracks. No links, no nuffin'. Of course
it may just be a straight ad, and quite franky, I don't care; it's
daft enough for me to play! Check Jamendo on www.jamendo.com
