Commercial Break, Encore


Recently received: the French edition of The Secret of Life, transformed, by the alchemy of translation, into Une Invasion Martienne. You can read an online interview about the book, conducted by Eric Holstein, here.
Elsewhere, you can watch Tom Waits’s press conference about his tour, or listen to the world’s oldest known recordings of computer music, made in 1951. No, it isn’t ‘Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do...’ But it's pretty close.

Nice cover art. Judging by its squareness, I'm assuming they've released the book as an LP.

It's either of the book in the form of a triple concept album or an image I nicked from amazon.fr and didn't reformat (I prefer the former idea, obviously).

Modern space music - I'm quite keen on Jah Wobble's Deep Space (and a lot of his other stuff). Otherwise, it's all a bit Virgin Records circa 1974...
