Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments OK so, Fishy_Jim has made it clear, 'NOT including Be Bop Deluxe or Bill Nelson's Red Noise'.

His suggestion is to search youtube, or use Bandcamp for more recent tracks. Which means that if we all decide to be all hip and up to date the playlist could be quite easily made this week.

Let the nominations begin and we'll see what happens.. Usual closing time, 10 pm Sunday

Weekend folks, hope everyone has a gig or two lined up. First semi final of our Mammothfest Best Band thingy on Saturday, it's getting tense now :-)

Fishy_Jim  | 970 comments Disappointed with the turnout considering the vast amount of material there is to chose from. Maybe that's the problem, too much to listen to in order to select a nomination. Bill deserves better than this, though. :-(

Complete stab in the dark as I know nothing about this artist, but some of it sounds interesting enough.

message 13: by Fishy_Jim (new)

Fishy_Jim  | 970 comments That's an obscure one you've found there, Spacepig. Orchestra Arcana was a side project of Bill's during the 80s (since it was just him under a pseudonym, it still counts as solo work).

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments I didn't even know it was an obscure one Jim. I just searched Bill Nelson on youtube and let the playlist play, and that one jumped out at me. It will be interesting to hear what everyone else has found.

OK, 11 noms, means 4 votes each. usual rules, voting closes Thursday.

Things might go off kilter a wee bit next weekend, I am making my first trip to Galway for a metal day out, some incredible bands playing, couldn't resist it so I am making a weekend of it. We'll work it out nearer the time. Meanwhile, playlist:

suzysunshine7 | 14594 comments I hope no-one minds me just being curious but I'm wondering why we have a Bandcamp Link for 'Once I Had A Time Machine' when it is also available on YouTube?

Is it because the nominee isn't keen on Bill's video to accompany it? ;o>


message 18: by Fishy_Jim (last edited Apr 29, 2018 03:43PM) (new)

Fishy_Jim  | 970 comments Sorry, they called it Time Machine Video, so I didn't realise it was for that song. If Spacepig can update the playlist it's:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agbEy...
Otherwise just go with the Bandcamp link.


message 19: by suzysunshine7 (new)

suzysunshine7 | 14594 comments Ohhh, it's no problem to use an extra Link to the Playlist, Jim ;o>

I was just curious as I found the video rather fascinating and very touching.

Glad you found the original version of Hope For The Heartbeat with the 'twiddly' electronic beginning which is missing from the later remastered CD version.
Re: the Time Machine video, Bill creates video backdrops for all his live performances. It's funny how a man who doesn't tend to look back at his musical history is so nostalgic in every other respect.

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments There we go then, all done.

Way way way out in front this week, Fishy_Jim surely knows his artist, Once I Had A Time Machine

Second place - SussexWelsh with My Electrical Empire, and a point behind, Tech claims third place with Banal.

Well done everyone, but despite you all hating it, I still think my nom was best :-)

And very well-nominated Sussex and tech! ... x x

I really enjoyed this Playlist and would have happily awarded everyone points if I had been allowed enough to go round ;o>


message 34: by Fishy_Jim (new)

Fishy_Jim  | 970 comments Thanks all and glad most of you liked one of Bill's more recent tracks. I hope some of you check out more of his huge back-catalogue. Bill is 70 this December and diabetes is starting to erode his sight, while he has lost hearing in one ear. In spite of this, he continues to record at a furious pace (I think partly driven by his ever increasing sense of mortality). For me, he is the most versatile guitarist I have heard.
