Thanks for the suggestions. Which one is the (kind of) compilation ?

What's up between Andrew MacKenzie and Touch ? Seems to be pretty messy ...
I think most people here have quite a fondness for Touch (releasing RHK and
Chris Watson stuff).

Chris Watson was with the Hafler Trio for 5 albums plus 1 kind of
compilation CD.  These are the ones he is on: Bang! An Open Letter Walk
Gently Through The Gates Of Joy Seven Hours Sleep Four Ways Of Saying Five
All That Rises Must Converge A Thirsty Fish These albums are not music per
se.  It is total sound experimentation.  One of my fave Hafler Trio albums
is How To Reform Mankind. I hope this helps. DOom

Hi all,

I think it is time for me to expand my everlasting search for good music to
the Hafler Trio. Is there a "definite" list of their best releases
(preferably those including Mr. Watson, to keep that CV-link) ? If so, I'd
be pleased to be educated on the subject.



PS : The CV Yahoo group was discussing a potential reunion of CV-members, I
must agree with them that I would like forward to a Kirk (in an atmospheric
kinda mood) + Watson team up !!!

PPS : Not really "on-topic", but perhaps some of you may be interested ... I
managed to see the revived Killing Joke live last Friday, at an medium-sized
open-air festival in Belgium. As some of you may know, KJ recently released
a new album, with Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters, ...) on drums (see
www.killingjoke.com for further info). Judging from the sound clips and the
gig, it's scorching ! The gig consisted of both old/ancient tracks
(Wardance, Requiem, Follow The Leader, ...) and newer stuff, fitting
perfectly together. Expect pounding bass-heavy drums, great metal-y guitar
riffs (luckily enough : no solo's !!!) and Jaz Coleman's (somewhat dressed
like some weird old druid, with a black, hooded cloak with a huge white
spider figure on the front) frantic raving in his graveyard howl on top.
Cool stuff (at more than 300 C) !
