Friday Night Fish Fry – insomniacathon

Is it just us or is nostalgia in the air like the spinning copper leaves? Maybe it’s something about autumn itself, most melancholy of the seasons. Could it be a that Friday nights have brought a slightly unsatisfactory three part series about the independent music of our youth? The concurrent but this year largely unheralded passing of John Peel day? Remembering falling asleep listening to him on the radio, thinking of an idea you read shortly after his death that a whole chunk of his audience might now become insomniacs. Or the seemingly growing tide of lavish reissues and compilations (because even here, in the underground, christmas is coming). Perhaps you were thinking about Big Black because they, like Gazelle Twin had covered Wire’s ‘Heartbeat’ when a brilliant and cheeky young artist had sampled Albini and drawn him into an amusingly public discussion about music. Possibly even briefly illuminating the way the internet has compressed musical time and space so that we are now always nostalgic because music is not lost in time, everything is current, everything is simultaneous and connected. Maybe. Maybe a mix you meant to put up on the blog never got finished properly and grew to over three hours of sound that could gently ease us into the arms of Morpheus
