Rambling about music

You can all call me an uncultured infidel if you like, but for me Pink Floyd = David Gilmour. I know I know, Roger Waters yadda yadda yadda - because screechy guitar and discordant vocals is ART, right? Well fuck art, I like my music to sound like music, and IMO the real musical talent behind the Pink Floyd sound is/was David Gilmour.

Anyway, in case you haven't heard me rambling about it on Twitter, Alan Parsons, David Gilmour and Shpongle - yes, Shpongle - have done a collaboration track on an album to raise money for Haiti. It's here if you're interested. I like that you can hear the individual sound of three very distinct artists in this, and they go together. And yes, you can pre-listen the whole track on that site, not just the first 8 seconds.

Whenever we go to visit Mum, there are no other cars in the carpark, not even on a Saturday afternoon. This makes me incredibly sad for all the people who live in that place, and angry at the people who don't visit them.
