How do, Julie and all! Theatrical drama at high noon!
Avatar Wed. 8/24/16 12:04pm C.S.:

They say this is Sarah Brightman going goth but I always thought this tune had a more symphonic metal quality to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/24/16 12:05pm Julie:

I agree CS, totally symphonic metal
Avatar Wed. 8/24/16 12:06pm C.S.:

I once played this tune after Sirenia's Path to Decay and they seemed to compliment each other.
Avatar Wed. 8/24/16 12:15pm C.S.:

Nice transitions. These songs all go well with each other. Hearing a bit of Echo and the Bunnymen in this Revel Hotel tune.

And for what it's worth, I absolutely agree that Brigtnman's "Fleurs" is bending towards Symphonic Metal. I'm keeping an eye on that genre lately, I know a LOT of people in their teens and twenties who are listening to more and more of it; i think artists like Brightman, her management and producers, and her mentor Andrew Lloyd-you-know-who are betting on Symphonic Metal to become a big thing, eventually much bigger even than it is now.
  Wed. 8/24/16 12:32pm P-90:

Oh right @Julie, you're entombed in the itty-bitty Studio C
Avatar Wed. 8/24/16 12:34pm C.S.:

@P-90 There's a lot of good symphonic metal but at times it can also fall victim to self-parody. By that I mean putting in harsh male vocals that ruin a song or going a bit over the top with the operatic singing or instrumentation. To me bands like Nightwish are a mixed bag. You have to judge every song on its own merit.

Things one remembers vividly for the rest of one's life dept.: being awakened by Clay Pigeon while sleeping in a tiny broadcast studio during a huge hurricane...
  Wed. 8/24/16 12:41pm P-90:

@C.S.: I know what you mean. I was just making more of a general comment that Symphonic Metal as a genre is growing in popularity, it's nowhere near it's peak and may be around fir a long time, and someone like Sarah Brightman and "her people" know this and see it as a natural area for her to explore.

Hello Julie & Darklings!

that album is old though I don't think she's done much similiar since.

Avatar Wed. 8/24/16 12:45pm C.S.:

@P-90 It's hard to say. I would have said Symphonic Metal peaked around 2010 but I just don't know. Haven't listened to it in a while.

glad to hear it weinstein, bit different for this time of day but I'm feeling the darkness this week!
  Wed. 8/24/16 12:49pm P-90:

@Julie: Good point, I see that album was 2008. (Why is time ticking so damn fast?!) Still "Symph Metal" was a natural trend for someone like Brightman to dip into. Her previous album was also "Classical Crossover" or whatever the damn shorthand label is, but softer

thank you James, glad you are liking it!

Thanks P-90. I'm kind of a psychedelic grid nut.
Avatar Wed. 8/24/16 1:01pm weinstein:

oh no geezerette! sorry. cabling and listening and chatting....
  Wed. 8/24/16 1:05pm P-90:

listener james: I miss Chris Lee a lot. He was a friend of my Dad's and I had the privilege of hanging out with him on a number of occasions, as an awestruck young man. (Chris would call the house to ask for my Dad, and if one of my little sisters answered the phone, his voice would scare her!) When I first knew Chris, his musical tastes were so traditional that he was still figuring out how to like The Beatles. But he did love Stephen Sondheim's musicals. So for Chris to wind up narrating and singing on Metal albums was quite a progression...
Avatar Wed. 8/24/16 1:05pm geezerette:

haha,multi-tasking is just reality now! ...& so is the psychedelic mind state! Anyway, wow! :)
Avatar Wed. 8/24/16 1:07pm C.S.:

Okay, they REALLY dumbed down the internet. I tried searching for Makaras Pen and Google is giving me pens that are shaped like maracas. Who is responsible for this? The internet seemed so much more precise seven years ago.
Avatar Wed. 8/24/16 1:08pm C.S.:

@P-90 That's amazing!
  Wed. 8/24/16 1:10pm P-90:

C.S.: yes, Google seems to be getting dumber. I admit to an infantile consumerist curiosity about pens shaped liked maracas, though...
Avatar Wed. 8/24/16 1:11pm geezerette:

P-90, I had a huge crush on Christopher Lee! Also Boris Karloff.
Did you ever read "Famous Monsters of Filmland"? Great magazine.
Avatar Wed. 8/24/16 1:13pm C.S.:

Got to give Lee credit for saying married to the same woman until his death. His roles in The Avengers were cool and I also loved the offbeat A Feast At Midnight.
  Wed. 8/24/16 1:19pm P-90:

@geexerette: I grew up with Famous Monsters Magazine! Forrest Ackerman, the editor, had a fantastic mansion in LA that was filled with his incredible collection of memorabilia, including things like Lon Chaney's makeup kit, the models from the original King Kong, books, posters, original paintings, etc. Growing up in NY, I'd see pictures of his mansion in the magazine, and never thought I'd ever go there myself, it was an impossible dream. Then I moved to LA as a teen and got to meet "Forry" and visit his house and collections. Miracles DO happen!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/24/16 1:21pm Julie:

all the english goth girls love the Lee Dracula
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/24/16 1:21pm listener james from westwood:

@P-90: Wow, how incredible to have had the chance to know him! And he had quite the long life in which to accommodate new music.
Avatar Wed. 8/24/16 1:24pm geezerette:

P-90, "Forry" was a hero of mine when I was in grade school! Never visited his house but when the internet was new and wild I emailed him and had a lovely little correspondence with him.
FMU really is where the weirdos hang out! I say that with affection and pride. :)
  Wed. 8/24/16 1:25pm P-90:

Chris was def the sexiest Dracula. He was the Swinging Sixties, "Mod"-era, English Dracula. It's hard to imagine that Bela Lugosi was considered a big sex symbol as The Count in the '20's and '30's, but popular tastes change, as we know
  Wed. 8/24/16 1:25pm SeriousTube:

Thanks for all of the music Julie. I've listened to loads of your old shows, never caught you live before.

C.S.: and if you haven't seen Chris in The Wicker Man, 1973 film with script by celebrated English playwright Anthony Shaffer, about the (true) persistence of quiet pockets of Paganism in the modern United Kingdom, you're in for a big treat
Avatar Wed. 8/24/16 1:36pm C.S.:

There was a college radio DJ in the 1990s who played some tunes off the Wicker Man soundtrack and that's how I first heard about it. She highly recommended the movie so I made it a point to seek it out which was difficult back then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/24/16 1:37pm Julie:

I think I heard the music first too, probably here on FMU
Avatar Wed. 8/24/16 1:38pm C.S.:

It's amazing how much I've learned from college / community radio over the years and the listeners who comment here are part of that. You are all good people.
  Wed. 8/24/16 1:40pm P-90:

And speaking of the quiet persistence of Pagan belief and ritual in the UK to this day, any Dark Night of the Soul fans who haven't yet discovered the Starz Network series "Outlander" might be well-rewarded to check it out.

Such nice ebbs and flows to this broadcast, Julie. I love where you take us musically. Sad it's almost over. Thanks again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/24/16 1:57pm Julie:

thanks for listening! Don't know when I'm back but I hope before long!
  Wed. 8/24/16 1:57pm P-90:

Those of us in the WFMU neighborhood will be in a perfect position to view the 2017 solar eclipse. Assuming Trump is not elected and the world has not ended by then.

@Julie: thanks so much for filling in! Two hours is not quite enough to contain you and the joy you bring, but this was great, looking forward to more fill-ins soon. In the meantime I always enjoy your Tweets...
