Sicilian Summer: A Story of Honour, Religion and the Perfect Cassata by Brian Johnston [REPOST]

Sicilian Summer: A Story of Honour, Religion and the Perfect Cassata by Brian Johnston
Allen & Unwin | 2007 | ISBN: 1741147352 | 300 pages | PDF | 4 MB

Irresistible and delicious, this multifaceted travelogue delves deep into summer in Sicily—complete with all the passion, power, politics, and pasta of the Italian island. After accepting an invitation to attend a confirmation in Sicily, author Brian Johnston naively expects little more than the chance to immerse himself in genuine southern Italian hospitality and, of course, the vibrant tastes, smells, flavors, and rituals of Sicilian food. What Johnston encounters and describes is flamboyant family drama, dangerous village politics, and eccentric local personalities—all while painting a fascinating picture of contemporary Italy.

My Life in the Bush of Ghosts

Both Brian Eno and David Byrne had, for a number of years, been interested in non- Western music styles, particularly those of sub-Saharan African of the Arabic cultural sphere; In the Talking Heads /Eno records, such influences function implicitly, but on the album 'My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts' they became explicit.

Over Rhythmic and harmonic backing tracks, played by Eno, Byrne and eleven other musicians, Eno and Byrne superimposed taped voices from a variety of sources. 'It's almost collage music, like grafting a piece of one culture onto a piece of another onto a piece of another, and trying to make them work as a coherent musical idea, and also trying to make something you can dance to' mentioned Eno."

The title of the album is inspired by Amos Tutuola's novel with the same title.

Brian Eno - The Ship (2016) [TR24][OF]

Brian Eno - The Ship
Ambient | FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/44.1 kHz | 47:30 min | 445 MB | Front Cover
Label: Warp Records | Tracks: 04 | Rls.date: 2016

The Ship is Eno's first solo record since 2012's Grammy-nominated LUX. Originally conceived from experiments with three dimensional recording techniques and formed in two, interconnected parts, The Ship is almost as much musical novel as traditional album. Eno brings together beautiful songs, minimalist ambience, physical electronics omniscient narratives and technical innovation into a single, cinematic suite. The result is the very best of Eno, a record without parallel in his catalogue. This is the deluxe CD with 8 page booklet and 4 art cards in case bound wallet with spot gloss UV and cloth bound spine.

Brian Setzer's Rockabilly Riot! Live from the Planet compiles concert recordings Setzer made while on the Rockabilly Riot! tour in 2011 and 2012. Included are performances from such diverse locales as Japan, Sweden, Australia, and, of course, the United States. Although Setzer made his biggest comeback since his '80s Stray Cats days with his big band the Brian Setzer Orchestra, he has often returned to the more intimate, but no less rocking, small-group rockabilly and country sound.

Both Brian Eno and John Cale have always flirted with conventional pop music throughout their careers, while reserving the right to go off on less accessible experiments, which means they've always held out the promise that they would make something as attractive as this synthesizer-dominated collection, on which Eno comes as close to the mainstream as he has since Another Green World and Cale is as catchy as he's been since Honi Soit. The result is one of the best albums either one has ever made. [A 2005 reissue added two bonus tracks: "Grandfather's House" and "You Don't Miss Your Water."]
