Some thoughts on listening to InGladAloneness

Having got the CD I listened to these few last tracks by Mick Karn and Dalis Car. It felt strange to hear his work. The tracks are very good. Very Dalis Car, in keeping with the first album which has always been a favourite for me.

I think I’ll need to listen to the tracks a few more times though to really get into them and get used to them if that makes sense.


The last work from Mick Karn and Dalis Car. I got my copy today. It’s signed by Steve Jansen. I’m really looking forward to listening to it.

Remembering Fad Gadget

I can’t believe it was 10 years ago Frank Tovey aka Fad Gadget passed away. My favourite track of his, “King of the Flies”. Excellent music.

Happy birthday Douglas

I was watching the new series of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency last night and remembered that today would have been Douglas Adams’ birthday. He would have been 60 today.

I loved Hitchhiker’s and have only recently got into Dirk Gently, but the work I most loved was what he did in Doctor Who. I leant the Big Finish version of Shada with Paul McGann as the 8th Doctor to a friend at work the other day. He really enjoyed it and commented on just how much humour there was in it. What else would you expect from such a talented writer.

He will continue to be missed, but his excellent work lives on.

InGladAloness released on the 20th

New material from Dali’s Car is being released on the 20th of February. I’m really looking forward to the release, especially as it was the last music made by Mick Karn. So I’ve ordered my copy already.

Seems like there’ll be lots of new music this month.

Remembering Elizabeth Sladen today

She would have been 66 years old today. We remember a wonderful actress who made a huge contribution to British Science Fiction and was brilliant in Doctor Who and her own excellent series.

She is missed.

Remembering Martyn Bennet

Whilst I didn’t know him really, I mark this day every year. Remembering the passing of a great musical talent.

I shall listen to ‘Grit’ by Martyn later today.

The Veteran Programme


Ok, my last post about the veteran car rally for this year anyway. I’ve never had a programme from the rally before, so it was great to get one this year after so many years of watching the event.
