Enjoying the output from Sleazy in his new Soi band - hailing these days form Bangkok - a mayor-hectic town of lights/smells/and-whatever-you-fancy - Peter has decampted there since the untimely demise of Coil and this is very much welcomed to these ears ..

I have spent many a screwed up period over the past 20 years in this town - always love the idea of going - can't wait to leave after a couple of days - bit like amsterdam - but with a lime-twist-and-a-shot-tom-yum-kung.... always felt like an escape portal to the southern Islands of Koh Samui and Koh Pann Ghan ... I am totally guilty of wasting almost a year doing nada in these parts in one take - and exhausted/deflated/defeated - upon returning to blighty - took a further year to sort it all out man .... - but heck - I was young(er) and ya got to do that shit right ?

Anyhows - a peek preview - SOISONG

Guitar - Solo

One day - BY LAW - all guitar solos will sound like this ... lets face it - I have played numerous gigs - and with my trusty lap-top - never got euphoric reaction like this - fuck knows why ??

Jesus of Cool

Totally loved this when it came out - played the baby to death - 12 inch glory of a disk sitting on the shelf over there - about to be spun up NOW - Breaking Glass - lets face it - is there a better pop song out here ? probably - but who here is counting - Nick Lowe rocks - re-issue of Jesus of Cool is surely a very good thing??

Related (Nick is playing the Bass) - here is some 3 minute joy - Rockpile - lovvly ...

nice for sure - lets admit it - no guilt please for liking POP - I do - and so should you ...

Live and loose - just how we like it ....

and well I know this is sort of a music type of post - important to categorize that sort of stuff man!!! - but you know - stepping out of the safety zone man ....

Cassini-Huygens - Descent on Titan

One day all music will by ORDER OF LAW be made this way !!

"Sounds from a left speaker trace Huygens' motion, with tones changing with rotational speed and the tilt of the parachute. There also are clicks that clock the rotational counter, as well as sounds for the probe's heat shield hitting Titan's atmosphere, parachute deployments, heat shield release, jettison of the camera cover and touchdown."

"Sounds from a right speaker go with the Descent Imager/Spectral Radiometer activity. There's a continuous tone that represents the strength of Huygens' signal to Cassini. Then there are 13 different chimes - one for each of instrument's 13 different science parts - that keep time with flashing-white-dot exposure counters. During its descent, the Descent Imager/Spectral Radiometer took 3,500 exposures."
