The lazy calm at the week's start. A few live performances included, but mainly music with an ear tilted toward string-driven things. (Visit homepage.)

This is the Konet project on in the background right?
  Mon. 3/24/08 3:37pm Irene:

Yes it is! The collection (spelled Conet) is out of print, but you can find downloads of it on the web.
  Mon. 3/24/08 3:39pm ADM:

Oh okay. I couldn't remember if it was Conet or Konet. I do remember that's where wilco got the name for their cd.

  Mon. 3/24/08 4:32pm Parq:

Me, I'm a wee bit jealous of Hugh being able to listen to FMU, and Irene in particular, in a garden.
  Mon. 3/24/08 5:36pm north guinea hills:

holy shit, it's harmonium! my favorite hippie band from montreal. this album has an amazing album cover.
  Mon. 3/24/08 5:38pm Irene:

Great! What can you tell me about them? I know virtually nothing , other than they're from Montreal.
  Mon. 3/24/08 5:41pm north guinea hills:

i have the album at home, i'll email you some info after i leave work. the only thing else i know is that that album is from 1972
  Mon. 3/24/08 5:51pm Irene:

Great! Thanks a Lot.
  Mon. 3/24/08 5:53pm Lipwak:

I was a big Harmonium fan for at least one of their songs. Comme Un Fou, was very meaningful for me as I was going out with a French Canadian girl from 1975 to 1979 and I was definitely a fool in love then. She gave me the L' Heptade D'Harmonium album, which is a live album, but I could have sworn there was a studio album with that song on it but AllMusic doesn't know about it.

The Heptade album is more or less one suite but I only liked Comme Un Fou and a few other tunes near it on the album. I'll have to go back and listen to it find out their names. (I'd be happy to dub it off for you Irene/FMU, if you wanted it. It's a well produced, well recorded album.)

Comme un fou, certain...
  Tue. 3/25/08 2:01pm ryan:

Is the Mekons album "Hurt So Good," or is it "So Good It Hurts?"
  Tue. 3/25/08 4:29pm Irene:

Ah, Ryan, right you are! "So Good It Hurts" is indeed the title. (Damn the auto-suggest function!)
---Your frequently wrong DJ
  Wed. 3/26/08 9:25am dnb:

I found some translations on line but frankly they seem to be automated. Here is my effort:

And the expectation so well forsaid
All is dead and so little said
So far beyond I searched that nothing was gleaned
At any cost one day I had to leave

Today I say hello to life
Tomorrow my nights will I no longer need

It is too late to understand
It is too dark to wait

We are always looking for some message to inscribe
At first upon our heart and then at the graveside
So far beyond I searched that nothing could I find
But when my song began the sun began to rise
  Wed. 3/26/08 10:59am Irene:

Thanks for taking the time to do this! I had a feeling I got the translation of the Harmonium title wrong.
