okay, so m4rc3l's back to rocking the violin, so I figured a compilation of tracks w/galbraith on said instrument would be, uh, inspirational. all of you ppl w/knowledge of corpus hermeticum, windy & carl, & so on, yr advice would be appreciated.
to get things rolling :

the cakekitchen - escape from fire island
plagal grind - receivership
alastair galbraith & graeme jefferies - timebomb
the bats - north by north
alastair galbraith - milky milo man

One of my all-time favorite artists and people!! But wait, you only want a list of the tracks on which Alastair plays violin?

"Stormed Port"!!!

a handful of dust - "a sort of saliva"

(he does play violin on it, and it's still a damn good track. sounds like some weird leftover bit of instrumental fuckery from a psych/prog album.)

why have I not heard cry until now? holy fucking shit. & is morse really as good as everyone's been saying?

etc, Wednesday, 21 December 2005 04:20 (sixteen years ago) link

yes morse is that good. stone is such a heartbreaking song.

keyth (keyth), Wednesday, 21 December 2005 04:46 (sixteen years ago) link

ha, old guy in the bookstore asked me what I was playing, & said he'd heard some on National Radio! go Alastair!


etc, Wednesday, 21 December 2005 06:13 (sixteen years ago) link

Sir, when I visit there again, you are to help me find rarities.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Wednesday, 21 December 2005 06:25 (sixteen years ago) link

Love the Alastair!

Ned Raggett (Ned), Friday, 10 November 2006 03:03 (fifteen years ago) link

So so awesome, couldn't happen to a better guy! god I'm so happy for him.

very comforting to finally have some good news the last couple of days

Stormy Davis (diamond), Friday, 10 November 2006 04:45 (fifteen years ago) link

demarnia lloyd and ag should make more music together.

keyth (keyth), Friday, 10 November 2006 04:46 (fifteen years ago) link

has anyone seen head in the clouds? the alastair galbraith/peter jefferies american tour documentry? i'm absolutely craving it. i ordered it a few days ago from the only place i could find but apparently they're out of PAL copies. pretty gutted.

whatwhatwhat, Sunday, 23 September 2007 02:17 (fourteen years ago) link

yeah, it's good. alastair does his hippy routine pretty naturally. peter jefferies starts quoting daniel johnston when he's drunk. good performances, but alastair's shyness sometimes impedes the translation to video.

keythkeyth, Sunday, 23 September 2007 23:56 (fourteen years ago) link

jesus christ i want it even more now. i'm in new zealand so you think i'd be able to find it. but apparently not.

whatwhatwhat, Monday, 24 September 2007 04:57 (fourteen years ago) link

I'm the guy who made "Head In The Clouds" - thanks for your interest. If you're looking for copies, feel free to write me at airstreamdriver at yahoo dot com.

airstreamdriver, Wednesday, 3 October 2007 00:11 (fourteen years ago) link

here there! just sent you an email. cool.

whatwhatwhat, Sunday, 7 October 2007 05:13 (fourteen years ago) link

three years pass...

There is still so much stuff by this guy that I have not heard, like the Cry CD mentioned upthread. Also several singles that are hard to track down... dude needs a box set.

the new LP on Siltbreeze, Mass, is just glorious. A perfect mix of styles.

I also haven't heard the more recent Orb or the Time-Lag LP with Youngs * Neilson. I bet Orb is great too.

This guy can craft a beautiful song! Has anyone heard Co-Ordinated Universal Time / Dream For Fire Organ And Voices?

JacobSanders, Thursday, 9 January 2014 20:32 (eight years ago) link

I would spend quite a bit of money on a deluxe vinyl box set of complete albums with a rarities and singles, compilation tracks. VOD, somebody....

JacobSanders, Thursday, 9 January 2014 20:40 (eight years ago) link

alastair is dope as heck. that last(?) album on siltbreeze from a few years ago is beautiful in a way i don't normally go for.

ian, Thursday, 9 January 2014 21:44 (eight years ago) link

National treasure.

Ppl (esp keyth!) shld check out Maxine Funke; gorgeous stuff & there's some A.Galbraith production/accompaniment.

etc, Friday, 10 January 2014 01:16 (eight years ago) link



etc, Friday, 10 January 2014 01:17 (eight years ago) link

At the very least a career anthology would be very welcome!

Gerald McBoing-Boing, Friday, 10 January 2014 01:50 (eight years ago) link

also worth checking out: galbraith, funke and mike dooley aka the hundred dollar band
