Here's a blast from the past - a powerful live performance of Woman in Chains.

Just the ticket for a musically contemplative moment on a Saturday afternoon...

I was thunderstruck.

The original Thunderstruck by AC/DC:-

The cover version by the Two Cellos:-

And it looks like AC/DC are still in the game when it comes to rendering this piece live:-

Will Self's comments - more often than not akin to mini lectures - are almost always densely packed with message, and in some cases I find myself at a loss to understand what he's just been saying. But this reflexion of his on the impersonality of the internet (really the world-wide web) is a worthwhile watch.

This band, The Horrors, were brought to my attention by Jonathan Macdonald, tech speaker and musican.

This piece is a bizarre fusion of styles and sounds that I cannot sum up easily, so that will have to wait. I particular like it when the piece hits the four-minute mark and goes off into retrospective rapture.

I think this will be a favourite on my running play list.


Amazing talent out there. Here is some more of it curated.
