1986:




Novus Magnificat was self-defined as "A Magnificat and Exaltate for digital orchestra, choral voices, and special electronic images" and "Dedicated to The Infinite One..."

The music was performed using the Emulator II, one of the first digital sampling synthesizers available: this provided and combined the sound of real symphonic instruments and choirs under a single keyboard, hooked to a Roland Juno 60 "for arpeggiated effects and enhanced sounds".

Nothing being written down or scored in advance, the album was directly composed and recorded in 1985 by Demby at the keyboard. The music was further enhanced with electronic textures by composer Michael Stearns and refined with record co-producer and label co-founder Anna Turner. The result was termed, "Music conjured by the future, rooted in the Western sacred tradition."

Little Fluffy Clouds was on the radio on KQAM (?? I remember the last letters because it was "alternative music") in Phoenix when I was there! I ended up with the CD and always liked this song! Just like Paul Harvey "now I know the rest of the story!"


Another band they played a lot on the radio was these guys:

Hunters and Collectors - When the River Runs Dry

Going to go all old school on you all. There was a time where I would think that Bob Marley didn't fit in this thread, but I think time has gone and gone again and maybe the message has lacked. Small Axe.

A song that may be more relevant now, than when it came out decades ago:


In case you doubt it's relevance today, a taste of the lyrics:

The spirit was freedom and justice
And it's keepers seem generous and kind
It's leaders were supposed to serve the country
But now they won't pay it no mind
'Cause the people grew fat and got lazy
And now their vote is a meaningless joke
They babble about law and order
But it's all just an echo of what they've been told
Yeah, there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into a noose
And it just sits there watchin'

Our cities have turned into jungles
And corruption is stranglin' the land
The police force is watching the people
And the people just can't understand....

Those words seem like they could have been written this year. WOW! I am a Steppenwolf fan, but have never heard this song.

And on that nautical theme, something less... er lovely.

Jumpin Jesus Jack Flash! ARRRRRGGGHHH! I was stuck at a bar where somebody put on a "Best of the '80's" playlist except it was the worst of the 80's! Seriously! The Reflex by Duran Duran? and Simply Red? And ABC? Not even The Go-gos? Or Flock of Seagulls? I would have settled for Major Tom! But nooooooo! I got Boy effing George!

The only thing that kept me from going postal was thinking of this thread! Thanks BD!

Sorry if already posted but like Mark Twain said, "It is going to take a half-hour of cussing and smoking just to get the taste out of my mouth!"

ETA: Reason I couldn't just leave is 'cause I was watching a hockey game. Which of course goes to overtime. And I'm sitting there grinding my teeth and clenching my hands into fists like a methadrine addict...

Good tune, but sorry to hear about your worst of the 80's debacle.


Southern Death Cult, Fatman



Hello to everyone else. Is it me or are there an awful lot of bad vibes about lately (if there are even such a thing as 'vibes' which, frankly, there probably aren't)?
