I recently sold my first book. In conjunction, I've established another LiveJournal to report on the project's progress, occasionally provide links about, and writings by, its subject, Paul Nelson (famous for his Rolling Stone reviews of Bob Dylan, Jackson Browne, the Sex Pistols, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, and the Ramones, as well as his cover story about Warren Zevon's battle with alcoholism), and share snippets of information or parts of interviews that may or may not be covered further in the final product.

The new journal shares the book's working title, Everything Is an Afterthought: The Life and Writings of Paul Nelson. Just follow the link.

Anybody interested in learning more about this brilliant critic, whose own life proved just as mysterious and fascinating as the artists' about whom he wrote, is welcome to join. As well, tracking the process of how a book goes from sale to publication should prove interesting. I'm rather curious about that part myself...

The Island Of The Unrealized Hopes by The Kirbi
VRB004 - released 23 Feb 2007 (Vorbic Netlabel)

32,76 КБ

This EP represents a small compilation of the tracks played by The Kirbi during live performances - in particular sessions played at the English Pub in Barnaul. "May Stars" and "Ocean Heart" were created in the period between 2002 and 2004, and are included in new mixes here. The rest of the tracks were created not long ago!

All of these tracks plus several more can be found on the full "Love For Grasshoppers" album, released in 2006. You can get acquainted with it on the official Kirbi site. The album was created under impression of summer 2006 and will serve as a good beginning of the 2007...

The sound is clear, transparent, and, consequently, palpably cold. Audible, beautiful unordinary melodies, which are a rarity nowadays, can be heard. As can reminders of retro-electronics in the background.

The music "maneuvers" between styles. Quite rounded not very long pop-compositions with tenacious melodies and sometimes rather forward rhythm with the ethnic percussion part elements, which change their emotional coloring. One thing sounds gloomy and heavy (it is as if "dark ambient"), while another thing disposes to dreaming (it will be "new age"); there are many references to the synthesized retro-sound, the early new-age.

Voice snatches from feature films, nature sounds and industrial noises can often be found in the tracks, along with original lyrics. Thanks to the "maneuvering" there are many elements from different periods - trends and small lanes of electronic music in the compositions.

It may amuse some a little. For the others it will be new.
