SIMPLE MINDS - Theme For Great Cities - 5X5 Live @ E-Werk Cologne Germany 19-Aug-2012
IMHO, one of the best instrumental pieces ever. From the 1981 double album "Sons and Fascination/Sister Feelings Call". If you like 'em, the 5x5 box set is worth the money. Moby also did a nice, but unnecessary, remix: http://www.youtube.com/watch..., if you're interested.
Can't link to the YouTube vid because EMI's blocked it because of chronic assholism. Here's the DailyMotion link: http://www.dailymotion.com/video... Directed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino. Love. This. Song.
NEW DOUBLE A-SIDE SINGLE - ‘COOLICON’ RELEASED ON CTI – 20th MAY 2013
Carter Tutti (Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti) are set to release a new single, their first one in over twenty years, on their own CTI label on the 20th of May 2013. A double A –side release featuring two versions of ‘Coolicon’, the new single is the follow up to 1992's 'Synaesthesia' and is released on ten inch green vinyl and is also available to download. Vinyl copies will be exclusively available at their forthcoming Heaven show on the 19th of May and via mail order from State 51 (http://cti.greedbag.com / iTunes).
The title ‘Coolicon’ is the name of the manufacturer of an old metal lampshade Delia Derbyshire used to 'sample' while at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop in the 1960s. Carter Tutti have their own lampshade and Cosey’s use of it’s distinctive sound can be heard to great effect on both recordings.
