Travelling Discs by Martin99 on 19 December 2003 11:25am
 

You've got enough room in your overpacked bags to fit 5 CD's and a CD Walkman. Your trip will be over a Month with no chance to replenish your collection. So what 5 essential Discs can you not live(travel) without?

I'll start the ball rolling:
1) The Best of the Doors (I know it's a best of, but it will take up less room, than several Doors albums!).
2) Automatic for the People -REM
3) Wood Face - Crowded House
4) Ok Computer -Radiohead
5) The Queen is Dead- The Smiths...

bye
Martin....

The only experience I have had of Jewel is flicking through a book of her 'Poems' in Santa Monica whilst on holiday. Is she any good?
Never heard of Zydeco or Dead can dance..Obviously essential listening whilst travelling.

zydeco is a style of music-- think cajun,think New Orleans. Fun fun stuff! And Dead Can Dance---magical...

What sort of music is 'Dead can dance' ?
bye...
 
Re: Travelling Discs by Helen on 19 December 2003 6:06pm
 
kinda ethereal, tribal sounding...sounds ancient. Can't really say what kind of music it is, it just IS. and it's great.
Have you ever heard of the composer Lisa Gerrard? She is one of the founding members. She has done many soundtracks including Gladiator and Whale Rider.
Get any of their CDs. You can't go wrong!
I enjoyed this musical conversation...

go here for an audio sample---

Unfortunatly I could not access the audio clip, sometimes the computers at work do this, sometimes they let ya, sometimes they don't!
Anyway I looked up a few things on DCD and gosh, I can see why you found it hard to describe them. One site described them as an ultimate listening experience!! Words such as Dark Wave,Gothic,neo classical,new age were also used. Wow, try pigeon holing this band. Every review on Amazon is excellent, so it speaks for itself. Dare I say it sounds anything like 'Clannad', or am I way off the mark?
I did like the music in Gladiator, I had no idea it was by Linda Gerrard, who it seems is one half of DCD. Thanks for the info.
Bye..

You are not way off the mark--- they could be considered Clannad-esque on some tracks...but, yeah, it is impossible to put a label on this band.
Lisa is one half of DCD, founded it in the 80s.
enjoy! :)
