My Mother, the intrepid, the bold and brave
I wrote a blog about my mother, the intrepid. In times of good and bad my mother is my shining light.
This is my mother, she is almost 60 years old but look at her, even in a still image she vibrates with life. I have had a lot of changes in my life this year, most if not all have been changes for good. 2011 and 2012 were not the best of years but through…

Just for winter
You guys KNOW I love a piano and Canada so how excited was I to get an email with news of a Haitian Canadian Piano man’s album release on Wah Wah 45.
And to boot he kinda looks like Anthony Braxton, well the chops anyway. And you know how I love me some facial hair.
Henri-Pierre Noel’s LP called Piano is awesome. There is a song called Ianvanoo, it is pretty much a seduction tune. It not on the sneak preview soundcloud linke below but trust me, if you wanna get someone into bed play that song and feed them cheese.
The original LP is sort of rare and goes for like £200 but you buy this reissue form Wah Wah 45 via Kudos Records on November 26th.
I will write a little more about Henri-Pierre a bit later on but for now just have a listen to this music cos the detail is not really important a Trouble from WFMU said to me the other day. More on my visit to WFMU later.
So, remember I told you that there would be some Canadian musical goodness coming your way? Well, here is it, Jesse Futermonee (ok, its Futerman but listen to this, can you help saying Futermonee? No, didn’t think so)
This is just the snippet reel, the whole thing comes out in June, 4th which is like (well more like actually) very soon. Note that since Jesse Futermonee is CANADIAN and not American, the EP is not coming out on July 4th.
The whole thing is pretty great but look out for the sex track, 40 Hats fot 40 Cats. Soundtrack to some lovin’.
