Haven't heard that new Michael Mantra, Brian, but it's now on my radar - will let you know.
Um...seems like everyone's talkin' 'bout the price of Gas
And since you bagged that Gas, I guess that'd make you a Gas-bagger
(no, stop, please... it's too much)
Rumour has it that Wolfgang Voigt is to market a new effects device for guitarists to create that lush teeming forest-y textural sound patented on his albums. It's to be called (wait for it...) a Gas pedal
(hysterical mugging to camera)
OK, now, seriously, the next ambient album I'd like to buy is Alio Die & Aglaia Private History of the Clouds
on Infraction. Not due till November I'm told, alas, so looks like I've got a long wait :-|
