The Dividing Line / Hey All :)

I just wanted to say hello :)

I have bounced through here a few times but kind of drifted away. 

Steve - Aussie, 35 - musician.

I am currently recording a Trio project with Zoltan Csorsz on drums - his parts are all done and sound great :)  Of course they sound great. 

Anyway, I received the Agents of Mercy album last week and am totally loving that.  It is the best thing Roine has released in a while (probably since Adam and Even IMO).  Really good album!

I am really pleased to see this place is still going strong.

Steve.

I guess those words probably summarise what I do, to an extent.  

If you want to check out my stuff go to:

Go to the MP3 page for some demos...  Surfing With the Tsunamian is my latest - its a guitar focussed rock instrumental.  Let me know what you think.  

Im working on a King Crimson cover at the moment, too, which may interest a few people.

Artists & Music / After chatting I got these CDs...
« on: May 05, 2005, 10:18:00 pm »
I was in the chat a couple of weekends ago talking to a few of the guys...

Since then and on recommendation I have gone out and bought King Crimson - TPTB.  I am a big fan of 80s/90s KC and also some of their 70s stuff.  I like TPTB a lot and it was a very worthy purchase.  It certainly is a lot better to my ear than TCOL which put me off the new lineup, until now.

I also got Adrian Belew's SIDE ONE.  This one is good but not great.  Some songs are cool others are a bit hit and miss.   I think the problem is that the album is only about 30 minutes long.  I want more for my dollar, really.  I loved Op Zop Too Wah - that was the perfect album for me.  This one is just a bit short and the themes arent really developed greatly.  The power trio on three of the tracks is excellent as would be expected.

I also got Porcupine Tree - Deadwing.  I like it a lot so far but need more listens. I read somewhere that Wilson was trying to bring prog into the 90s with PT.  To my ear it is more like he is dragging it slap bang into 1986.  The vocal approach and moody synth stuff is extremely 80s romantic sounding and yeah, i like it a lot, but it is not modern apart from the grungy guitars - which do work very well.  Overall i think i am going to like this album a lot, it has a lot of heart and some very cohesive and immersive song writing.  

Thats all!

Heya all.  

Used to tune in a few years ago and enjoyed the chats etc.  

Looking forward to catching some webcasts if my aussie time zone and schedule allow.  

Steve.
