Podcast: SonicTALK 096 - Where the Good Doggies Go

SONIC TALK 096 Two from either side of the pond this week, with Rich Hilton fresh back from Manchester's CreamFields Chic concert, where the band played another blinder - according to GForce Software's Dave Spiers who was there to finally meet Rich in person. The results were not only enjoyable, but we also finally got a snap of someone with a SonicState banner in the audience. See picture.... Also with me this week are Mark Tinley, sound artist and generally good egg, who's long relationship with Duran Duran keeps him on his toes, and PJ Tracy - crack pianist and studio owner from Minneapolis. Firstly we talk of Creamfields and other weather dependent activities, then we're into Slau's response to Rich Hilton's question on M&S mic tecnhnique, sound libraries on hard discs and other sound effects related chat, then we talk of music that makes us cry, Psychedelic Furs and then to a topical politics in music.

I love Watto's stuff, and what is really neat is that he will do requests.

Psychedelic Furs there great! They were pretty big in the 80's in the US. Richard Butler in 1992 formed Love Spit Love, which was Ok.

Love the Pod-cast ! Cheers

I'm becoming traumatised - I think there's only so many times you can take Hurt in a week.

I watched the video yesterday and listened to Watto - now I am feeling melancholic and reflective with that tune rattling round my head. I need an antidote!

Richard, glad you like it.

Peter Gabriels 'Don't give up' and 'Blood of Eden' are very moving. In terms of movie/tv related stuff, I was really moved by several tracks in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Musical episode which I thought was brilliant. Also, the last piece in the original Neverending Story movie where the strings play this amazing uplifting theme is fantastic. And 'Forever Autumn' in War of The Worlds...

It's best to keep Mr. Richard Hilton from watching reruns of CSI Miami, then! As for sample libraries, Muse research recently chucked the entire Miroslav Orchestra bank, as well as Samplemoog and their Mellotron samples onto a hardware instrument, using their Receptor technology.

I think that Kate Bush - This Womans Work easily should have qualified for the weepy list.

The Furs were great before the drugs, and the early LoveSpitLove stuff has some great lyrics.

Thanks for another great show, looking forward to #100

Oh my, that really is a tearjerker - thankfully, it's not really catchy too - at least to me..

otherwise that would be stuck in my head this week....

Marc JX8P    Said...

I just thought of something, maybe it'd be an idea to have a competition for a new intro-music for the podcast for the 100th edition?

Trying to cheer Nick up without being unrealistic:

to robbie ryan:

thanks for you concern sir. i can't stand to sit through 5 minutes of first-run CSI, never mind reruns! the only thing about that show likely to make me cry is the abusive way they use color "correction" to make the whole thing have the veneer of a cheap comic book.

wishing you well, Rich

Marc JX8P    Said...

Colour correction? Jeez, and here's me thinking that that was Caruso's real hair colour! :-)

Steve from Saskatchewan    Said...

Usually I listen the day the podcasts come out, but work is busy and I got behind...

Still, though late, I HAVE to comment on the weepy list... Now it's not my preferred style of music, but "Anchorage" by Michelle Shocked makes me cry every single time, even listening to it back to back. It captures so perfectly friends who have drifted apart as they grow up but still have that close bond even though they haven't talked in years... It's amazing...
