Update


You'll have noticed that nothing's happened here for the last seven days and if you've read the comments on the last post you'll know why (thanks for the best wishes by the way). The computer developed a fault. I took it to be repaired. They phoned today to tell me that the computer is exactly where I left it with them because the van that comes to pick up faulty goods to take them for repair has had the 'wrong size containers'. This caused me to feel quite angry. They say it will be up to another week before I get it back. This caused me further feelings of anger and annoyance. It's no big deal in the grand scheme of things I know but it is personally irritating and it's amazing how much we've grown to rely on computers for all sorts of things. Take it away and there's many things I cannot do (even with a smartphone as backup). Anyway, to cut a long story short I've managed to get logged in tonight (and that's a whole other story of password hell I won't bore you with) and have some functionality using my daughter's laptop.
My daughter's laptop which contains exactly no music to post. I don't know how often I can post using this machine and some of its limitations but we'll see. I've gone off to Youtube and am sharing this with you as a stopgap. Andrew Weatherall has done two remixes of The Liminanas single Garden Of Love (the one with Hooky on bass and backing vox). This version takes the drums off and takes it almost into Smokebelch Beatless Mix territory.

I really like this at record. Weren't aware of the duo before this but think that they need to be investigated further.

Must be murder without the laptop. Do you not keep your music on an external drive?

what a pain but good to have you back, even partially

I feel your computer related pain Adam, hopefully things get sorted out for you soon. I've got two albums by The Limiñanas, both excellent - well worth investigating further Drew.

Yeah I do Drew, I do. Need to get my external hard drive situation rationalised.

As you say it's frightening how much we rely on our computers and our internet connections. Glad you're back posting. hope the computer thing hasn't spoiled your half-term too much.

Swiss Adam said...

Not on half term until today George, a week later than most places.

SA....Real sorry that you're in technology hell just now. Like you said, its amazing how much we rely on PCs and the rest of it for so many things nowadays. It's also worrying....all it takes is one minor hiccup such as a wrong password and you find yourself screwed.

Fingers crossed it sorts itself out soon.
