Oh no! Seriously, next time they're over here/there/Europe somewhere you
must cancel anything you can get away with to see them! Sell everything you
have if you must! :) I think I've seen many of the best bands ever that
have existed during my lifetime but they're right up there with one of the
best bands I've ever seen. Apatt are also an excellent live band - better
than on record IMO and about as near as you get to a British equivalent to
Mr Bungle, without sounding like them.

Cardiacs were obviously a big influence on Mr Bungle as they predate them
by almost a decade I think. They occupy a funny space in music history
really as punk is always said to be what came in and killed prog but
Cardiacs were a punk band who obviously loved Gentle Giant, KC, Soft
Machine and early Split Enz etc. Pronk!

I've got another 5* recommendation for you guys thanks to Julien actually -
have you heard the latest Anglagard album? Absolutely stunning! Its without
doubt the album of the year for me and one of the best albums I've ever
heard! Its an hour long without a single dull second - its really hard to
stop it once you start playing it!

Its going to be very interesting to see how my new band take to Linux
audio. The bad news is they're not geeks, but thats also the good news as
they have no expectations on how a DAW 'should' work other than comparing
it to a decade old and hardly top rate hardware multitracker. I know my
fave LA stack of apps beats it into a cocked hat in many respects, once
they've got their head round a number of new concepts and the basics of
Linux I think they'll like it and enjoy its flexibility and responsiveness.

Hey! Sure they will find Linux fine.

Once again, though several in here (and at other places) find GNU/Linux
a not-to-be-used solution, or not in "professionnal places", or n=
ot in
live, or not by non-geek users, I just think the exact opposite, and
what I'm doing right now in Sebkha-Chott or other AMMD projects wouldn&=
#39;t
be possible without jack (or perhaps with Live + Max MSP, but I really
prefer to use softwares build by people having application developpment
skills than crappy PD/Max MSP prototyping by musicians!).
