One of the joys of Napster is being able to explore musical linkages at no extra cost. Through Harold Budd, I discovered Robin Guthrie. By association I discovered Dead Can Dance. Through Dead Can Dance’s Lisa Gerrard I rediscovered Klaus Schulze. Schulze was a founder of Tangerine Dream but left after one record, to form Ash Ra Tempel and then go solo. Long ago I had a copy of Dune, so I had some experience of Schulze. His three albums with Lisa Gerrard are well worth listening to. I’ve started listening to more back catalogue. Today I have been listening to Live @ Klangart. It’s excellent. Once Schulze gets into a groove, he doesn’t let go and becomes hypnotic. Have a listen to this if you’ve got half an hour to chill. Quite superb. I promise the trip report will start tomorrow.
