Music today has been diverse because in the car we listened to All Together Now by Argent from 1972 with the long version of Hold Your Head Up and Tragedy which is not really like The Bee Gees but they must have heard it. I’ve had this album since day one and know it well, I Am The Dance Of Ages and the thirteen-minute Pure Love and its four parts. But I also went the other way tonight and listened to Savages‘ fantastic debut Silence Yourself from 2013. Scary singer Jehnny Beth (who’s actually French, real name Camille Berthomier) has just put out a duets album with Primal Scream singer Bobby Gillespie called Utopian Ashes (2021). She also released a solo album, To Love Is To Live (2020), but despite her powerful presence this album is all about the band, Gemma Thompson on extremely great and inventive guitar, Fay Milton on drums, and a great bass player, Ayse Hassan, who was something else when I saw them live in Stockholm, they all were. Hassan has an experimental group, Kite Bass, their first album Latent Whispers was released in 2017. Great music if you like this kind of thing or like me, likes all kinds of things.
