3/4/2017 TKS Presents: ‘Rain’n’Cats’n’Dogs’ tracklist

Yep, it was rain ‘n’ cats ‘n’ dogs back at the beginning of April on The Kitchen Sink, thankfully not meteorologically, there being no deluge in the studio, but the well-known 17th century phrase did provide the inspiration for a nicely diverse sonic focus…..

2) Elodie Lauten – Cat Counterpoint /from ‘Piano Works Revisited’/ Unseen Worlds 2010

That classic, considered by some as one of the launching pads the space rock genre, brought the show to an end on a night when, though I might have passed one of the neighbourhood stray cats on the way home, I don’t recall encountering any canines or the showers which the fourth month is associated with…
Wishing you many an aural pleasure! S.
