Wow, Henry Cow! Talk about some kick-ass music. Do you also like
Dagmar's solo stuff? The only thing she ever did that I did not like
was with Kevin Coyne. I had the pleasure of helping Fred Frith and
his band set up for a concert in Baltimore many years ago. And
Anthony Moore is great too. I used to play his version of War against
the HC version. Two vastly different presentations, but the same
message. Thanks for the reminder.
Marc (who sadly sold all of his record collection when he went head
over heels for his wife and wanted to devote his entire life to making
Seems I've gotta check out Moore's version. Henry Cow may be too much
for the delicate ears of most who inhabit the wreck (yep, that's a
dare). Though I haven't heard all her stuff, Dagmar has/had impeccable
tone control, with a timbre that requires the listener to acclimate.
You must play an instrument with some degree of skill, as that would
help to provide a non-biased ear to the seemingly dischordant ways of
the band (never mind the mind-bending theme and variation). What were
you thinking, selling your records??? She'd better be worth it!
Although it's too late for us, I still tell everyone what Dr.

Many of your music related posts are really interesting. This one is
no exception. Soooo... I had to do it. Listen to 2 versions of Waits
and the only one The Eagles did, that I had on iTunes.
Same melody, same lyrics, 2 totally different songs and my reactions
and emotions are completely different.
One is a tall, dressed-to-the-nines glamour chick in heels, jewellery
and expensive perfume, the other, that freckled, slightly rounded red-
headed barkeep that dragged me up to her apartment in Soho and kept me
prisoner for 2 days.
Same game, different level of passion.
There can't be an answer as they are not the same song. I admire The
Eagles, but I bow to Waits.
r----> who really enjoyed just blowing 1/2 hour out of his arse. :-)
