there is a fourth, at least

The Silent Corner and the Empty Stage (February 1974). Especially "Modern". Absolutely astonishing.

There is so much more waiting to be discovered. To be honest, I've only just started.

Massive autobiographical / pop as of now (and possible recovery thereof) piece coming this weekend, you may or not be thrilled to hear.


  1. I look forward to it.

    Re. Hammill; yes, probably my favourite too, as a sustained work, though so many other fine albums...

    Have you listened to much Roy Harper or Clifford T. Ward? To think of two contrasting yet not entirely separable types of Englishness.

  2. A decent amount of both (more of Harper). Not enough to really *fully* assess either, but I really should have written about what I *have* heard of Harper before now. I think Hammill will take up much of the next few weeks, though.
