Skyray - Mind Lagoons

Skyray is a project by Paul Simpson (The Wild Swans). The now OOP Mind Lagoons album also features Bill Drummond (the KLF). Apparently it was Bill who contributed pedal steel guitar samples by "Evil" Graham Lee on some tracks of this album, i.e. samples that were not used on the KLF albums. So here you get your Triffids connection !

I really like Graham's contribution here, as well as his work with the KLF and with (more recently) All India Radio.

Blackeyed susans boxset coming

At the End of October, the Susans will start a short live tour in Australia. This is what I got from the liveguide website :

The Blackeyed Susans embark on their first national tour in over five years to celebrate the release of their new retrospective box set ‘Reveal Yourself 1989-2005’. Lush, dark and romantic, The Susans last album, ‘Shangri-La’, earned them their second Aria nomination and had Rolling Stone Magazine declaring them national treasures. Now they return to the stage with a show that spans their entire back catalogue, serving both the long time true believers out there and those seeking an introduction to the op-shop styings the band so beautifully twist into something uniquely their own. Featuring with The Blackeyed Susans will be pedal steel ace and part-time Susan "Evil" Graham Lee of The Triffids.

So apparently the long wait will be over. I haven't seen a tracklist yet. Maybe some reader of this blog knows more ?

As a teaser you can find here a live version of Spin the wheel. This track is on a lust for live 2cd set of triple j performances.
