    I'm getting ready for some exciting live music
    this week: PJ Harvey on Thursday and then Amp
    Fiddler and Quantic, both on Saturday night. I've
    said it before and I'll say it again: if you are
    anywhere near an Amp Fiddler show. go! The man is
    so funky and the band is so tight.....just go.
    We've got tix for Amp at Bimbo's and for
    Quantic's DJ set at Milk later that evening, so
    tune in for your chance to win.

    New music that's making me happy includes a new
    package of forthcoming releases from
    whatmusic.com, that includes an outstanding disc
    from the Teddy Rok Seven entitled, "Universal
    Four." The creation of Finland's Teppo Mäkynen,
    the album gets into some deep jazz dance bizness
    that strikes the right balance between the
    acoustic and the synthetic.

    "Mailbag Blues" is the 1974 soundtrack to the
    life of Ronald Biggs - the man convicted in
    Britian's Great Train Robbery and immortalized by
    the Sex Pistols. Bassist Bruce Henry and a posse
    of stellar Brazilian studio cats recorded a
    soundtrack to a movie that's yet to be made, but
    that interprets, song-by-song, Biggs' description
    of the events that led up to the caper, as well
    as his arrest and subsequent escape from prison.
    More great jazz that's finally being released for
    the first time!

    The Saint's "Grown Folk Music" juggles both rap
    and house music with a pinch of funk for a pretty
    interesting mix. It's on 7Heads, so you know it's
    dope.....according to the press release, Nouvelle
    Vague translates to new wave in English and bossa
    nova in Portuguese, which is perfect for this
    most unusual record. Songs by '80s artists such
    as Joy Division, Depeche Mode, Dead Kennedys, the
    Undertones, the Clash, XTC and others are
    reinterpreted as lazy bossa lounge tunes by eight
    young female vocalists who supposedly had not
    heard the originals before the recording dates.
    The project smacks of novelty, but actually turns
    out to be quite endearing. Check this one out.

    Speaking of out, so am I.....until next week, ciao for now!
