Today Is No Music Day

No Music Day ... Bill Drummond - of KLF fame - has decided today should be no music day.

What I decided I needed was a day I could set aside to do nothing but
think what it was I wanted from music. And develop ideas of how that could be
achieved. This day I would call No Music Day.
Bill Drummond.

Nice idea. Shame I didn't know in advance or I'd have avoided booking tickets to see the Philarmonia Orchestra perform Mahler's 7th Symphony tonight.

Swen's Blog

Artists mentioned in The Wire

As The Wire is the only tree based music magazine I read on a regular basis I thought a link to Swen's unofficial blog about artists mentioned in The Wire was well worth a link.

Shame about the overload of adverts on it.

Lipreading classes should be free and better supported

A good cause put forward and championed by my dad.

Vote for it here so that LINK can take it forward. You can see the other 'soapbox' opinions here.

- though, obviously, LINK need to have an option for a decent, cross-browser, website, built by someone who knows better than to put spaces in URI's. etc. etc. :-(

Gerry is also interviewed in the October issues of One In Seven the RNID members magazine, with a moving story from my niece Fiona, about his cochlear implant which has given him the ability to hear again. Hopefully he's enjoying the music.
