According to a recent email, my films on Vimeo have had over 1000 plays. Sadly it appears that the most puerile one, My Neighbours Cock (2008), has had 90% of those views while others have only had a couple.

Stegzy's Music Project

Some of the more regular readers and people that know me from elsewhere probably already know that I am undertaking a project where I am listening to an album from my vast MP3 library every day then writing something about it. This has been going on for nearly a year now over on my dedicated Wordpress site: http://stegzysmusicproject.com

I had been using IFTTT to cross post over here which, in turn, would cross post over to my LJ. However, IFTTT is not always functional and cross posting is frowned on by Mr Google. So instead I will try to post a weekly digest of links here.

Here is a list of a number of posts that you may have missed:

Burning from the Inside - Bauhaus
Bursting Out - Jethro Tull 
Cabin Fever - Rasputina 
Call off the Search - Katie Melua 
Call on the Dark - Various Artists 
Camel - Camel 
Camembert Electrique - Gong 
Camera Camera - Renaissance

Call on the Dark – Various Artists (#236)

NB_0233_1167839428_large Call on the Dark – Various Artists

I think it’s probably best that I warn you in advance. When I get to “G” there will be a whole load of compilation albums similar to this resulting from my search into gothic music. If you read regularly you’ll already know of that search.

Call on the Dark is a compilation album. No idea where I got it from but it’s more than likely I downloaded it because it has a track by Fields of the Nephilim. Anyway, the compilation consists of the following:

  • Annwyn, Beneath the Waves – Faith and the Muse

  • Flash in My Veins – Silke Bischoff

  • Dawnland – Love Like Blood

  • Demon – London After Midnight

  • Kick It – Nitzer Ebb

  • Bin Ich Es Denn – Das Ich

  • Dawnrazor – Fields of the Nephilim

  • Dreamland – Girls Under Glass

  • Chains – Dreadful Shadows

  • If Only – Born for Bliss

  • Disorder – Shock Therapy

  • Godsent – Dreamside

  • Kleine Schwester – Umbra et Imago

  • Precious Limetree – Darc Entries

  • To a Loyal Friend – Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of Shadows

Nephilim aside, there’s nothing much to like about this compilation. I suppose I keep these kind of things just incase I find something I like but 8 years on, I still haven’t.

Broken – Nine Inch Nails (#224)

Broken - Nine Inch Nails Broken – Nine Inch Nails

Very occasionally I’ll look at who’s playing what on a soundtrack for a film I like. Then I might look up information about that artist, download a couple of their tracks or albums and then see if I like them.

This is what happens when you do that.

You end up with an entire back catalogue of albums, EPs, remixes and guff that litters your music collection.

Broken is an example of what happened after I heard Nine Inch Nails on a number of soundtracks in the nineties and noughties. I immediately sought out all their music based on the Lost Highway and Tomb Raider soundtracks. Disappointed? Yeah I guess I was because I was not able to convert any of their albums into favourites. Of course that didn’t happen with Rammstein.

Boxed – Mike Oldfield (#213)

Boxed - Mike Oldfield Boxed – Mike Oldfield

Boxed is a compilation of Oldfield’s early works in their entirety. Featured in this “Box set” compilation are:

Tubular Bells

Hergest Ridge


And a number of single projects such as Portsmouth and In Dulci Jubilo.

As all the original albums will feature in this project eventually, I’ll not dwell too long or go into too much detail on this album for fear of repeating myself.
