Re: Artists similar to Leonard Cohen

In Yahoos "more obscure" artists, Billy Bragg comes in just behind Nick Cave and Tom Waits. I remember Lizzie saying she was not familiar with him, so maybe he is not known much outside Europe.

Re: Artists similar to Leonard Cohen

"Yahoo music" has a page on Leonard that has a "similar artists" button to click on. Be sure to look at the "more obscure" option.

I just cannot imagine Leonard with a hard expression like that on his face.
We had better take notice of what Diane says, after all she does know him very well. I've seen the photographs of them together.

St. Swithins day.

Today, the 15th of July is St. Swithins day. Tradition has it that if it rains today it will continue for 40 days. Looking out of my window now, it's not looking good. Here is a cover of Billy Bragg's "St. Swithins day" by Dubstar (pretty good, but I wish I could have found one by Billy himself). ht...

Re: LC in person at the Barbican on 20 October

A minor point of order, Bhasi wrote......
Our Man is scheduled to be 'in conversation' with Philip Glass at the Barbican (London - UK) on 20 October just before the UK premiere of the Book of Longing work.
The 20th is three days after the UK premiere, which is in Cardiff, Wales.
