A COUPLE OF FAB RECENT DISCOVERIES

I felt I should pass on pointers to both of these, since they've been occupying my time of late and would surely tingle the tangles of more than a few of our followers.

The first is an interview conducted by celebrated engineer/producer Udi Koomran (Present, Dave Kerman/5uu's, Aahvak etc.) with the even more legendary and elusive Etienne Conod, the producer and engineer responsible for recording some of the most extraordinary and revered R.I.O. albums of all time, including those by The Art Bears, Univers Zero, Art Zoyd, Aksak Maboul and many others. For anyone that geeks out on this sorta info, this discussion is pretty fascinating. Go Here for that.

Also fascinating and worth following are a series of podcasts by Eurock, the formidable former journal of all things left field and progressive in the 70's and early 80's. Especially of note are the ones featuring Conrad Schnitzler and Cluster. Go Here for that.

Many thanks for these two tips. I still keep some very old Eurock magazines from far away here in Argentine.
