From behind the cabinet: Instant Composers Pool (1972, NL, Weird) 
Sunday, September 17, 2006, 06:13 PM - Music, - NL, English
When rearranging my living room, I discovered some hidden records.
Most of them are odd, I will publish them the next days.

Starting with this 5" flexi of the Instant Composers Pool, a dutch improvisation band. Most of its members are now in the Willem Breuker Collectief.
This record was distributed for free at high schools as promotion for the CJP (Cultural Youth Passport).



A combination of psych, weird, blues and free jazz.
I think it's very rare.
On the other side was a song of Solution, another fine dutch band, taken from their lp Divergence, still available on cd in the shop.

Pat Cool - Day Break (1973, NL, Canterbury) 
Saturday, September 16, 2006, 04:42 PM - Music, - NL, English
Band from the south of the Netherlands (Limburg, Tegelen).
Typical dutch early 70's sound: jazzy, mainly instrumental with lots of Hammond organ and some flute.
Sounds a bit like Solution, Supersister and Focus (without guitar).
Gé Titulaer sings horrible english, even I can hear that.
But the instrumental parts dominate and they are very good.
By the way, Gé is the father of the Dutch Idols winner 2004 Boris Titulaer.



Gé Titulaer: Keyboards, flutes, vocals
Huub Timmermans: Keyboards
Tom van der Schoot: Bass
Peter Tiggelers: Drums

Side 1:
1 When somedays [8:50]
2 What are you about [4:35]
3 For all who really had to cry [9:40]

Side 2:
1 Day break [4:40]
2 I wish [7:55]
3 There has been a change in me [8:45]

(there are three scratches on 'I wish', sorry for that)

Extra:
The sun king found his kingdom here [4:20] (not my rip, found it somewhere on the web)

Wiel's Web Radio

I have my own web radio.
There is a link between the 'Links' in the right column.
But nobody notices it.
So here the big announcement.



I like sounds.
Don't expect songs or even melody.
All own recordings.

Happy floating...

Off topic, but interesting (blogs) 

Create your own Radio Stations 
Sunday, September 10, 2006, 06:26 PM - Music, English
Pandora is a music discovery service designed to help you find and enjoy music that you'll love.



Pandora takes your input (artists, songs) and feedback ("I like this", "I don't like this") and use the Music Genome Project to create stations that play songs that are musically similar to what you've told them. That's it; only the music counts. Pandora doesn't care how popular the artist is, who's backing them, and which genre bin they usually belong in. Only the music matters.

After a while Pandora will ask for an USA zip code because they are only allowed to serve USA citizens. You can use 10005 for example, the zip code of the New York Stock Exchange.
