Love Les and Mary. Wonder if they were a big influence on Joe Meek? Just guesswork - I really ought to know more about those sort of things.

Geoffster - Cheers Geoff. I didn't go to the exhibition - I decided to go without tired child on Monday as I am unemployed forever as from the beg of next week. Oh the joys of being freelance....

Bettster - Yes - they are amazing. There was a great doc last night about Les Paul on BBC4 called Chasing Sound I think. It is repeated tonight very late - try and catch it/tape it etc if you can. Hmmm...I think you are def onto something re: Joe Meek.

Paul Ford is 92 years old now, and every Monday evening he plays live the Iridium Club in New York City. He is just unbelievable.

I didn't realise Les Paul was a real person until very recently.

I LOVE this tune - and this clip, been blasting it myself recently - it's so creamydreamy and there's something Donna Summerish about the vocals in the middle section (circa I Feel Love).

PS there's another Les Paul clip worth a peep here (one of the first things I blogged)

Cooperman - wilkommen to Romo Towers! Yes - he is INCREDIBLE. What a guy!

Momo Madster - I know - it is so ethereal and magical - like flying around in the stars

Ivan - are you pulling my leg?!

Col - ooh - cool!

Billster - no - I didn't know anything about him until I saw a brilliant doc on him last week. Up to that point I thought he was just some bloke that made guitars.

Mr Mondomania - I know - it's incredible isn't it? Such a modern sound in a way - he was like a cross between a music scientist, a musician and an inventor. I am blown away by Mary's voice. thanks for the linkage x
