12/3/2012 ‘Sound+Vision Film Quiz 2’ and 19/3/2012 ‘NY Sonic Melting Pot’ tracklists

Musing over alternative lyrics to Nolan Strong & The Diablos 1954 doo-wop classic ‘The Wind’ as I settle down to log the tracks played on both this week’s show, which featured a great cover of the above-mentioned song, and last week’s film quiz.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Starting with the film quiz – a dozen tasty slices from soundtracks which, whether correctly identified by listeners or not, hopefully provided an entertaining sixty minutes. Before the quiz, it was to the track from which its title was taken……

14)ANGELO BADALAMENTI – MOVING THROUGH TIME /from ‘Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me’/ Warner Bros 1992

That second track from Angelo Badalamenti’s typically atmospheric score for David Lynch’s film prequel &/or sequel to his Twin Peaks tv series, moved us through time and to the end of another show……

After a pause much larger than that evident from the above gap, during which the ingredients for a pot of pasta sauce have been introduced to each other and left to simmer together, it’s back to the tracks and back to Monday’s ‘NY Sonic Melting Pot’ programme. Due to lack of time, I was unable to put together the in-depth delving into the Big Apple’s diverse sounds and cultures which Kris Needs excellent ‘Watch The Closing Doors’ compilation and booklet had inspired, but hopefully the following tracks captured something of the sonic flavour of the city…..

1)IMPLOG – HOLLAND TUNNEL DIVE /originally Lust/Unlust single 1980(?), included on ‘New York Noise Vol.3’/ Soul Jazz Records 2006 More info: http://www.donchristensen.com/about.php

14)STEVE REICH – NEW YORK COUNTERPOINT 1 Fast /from the ‘Phases’ collection/ Nonesuch 2006                      More info: http://www.stevereich.com/

And, having entered The Big Apple via Don Christensen’s ‘Holland Tunnel Dive’, it was with a taste of Steve Reich that New York City’s sonic melting-pot was left; the sounds remained in my head as I walked Brno’s late night pavements home, however, and I’m sure it won’t be long before another of the city’s artists features on the programme….Philip Glass….DNA….Talking Heads….so many I could have played, given more time!

For now, wish you many a sonic delight – Shiny.
