Re: Friday Night Is Music Night on BBC4 TV

Friday 3rd Oct:

I know I usually post up the forthcoming schedule for the night, but really, seriously, I'd advise you make plans and go out tonight. (I'll be catching Ben Poole at Newcastle Cluny).  I'd report what is planned, but do you really want Duran Duran name-dropped on here? Oops!  Only thing worth catching are the re-runs of August's Kate Bush specials.

Re: Friday Night Is Music Night on BBC4 TV

BBC4 - Friday 17th October,

They're going to be showing Robert Plant & Sensational Space Shifters (what's wrong with "Band"?) set from this year's Glastonbury as well as Jeff Lynne's ELO performance at Hyde Park from this summer as well as documentaries about both artists.

Check BBC4 schedules page for timings.

Some bloke called J.M. Hendrix featured on 10th - just look at posting for April 18th for timings. (If the BBC can't be bothered, why should I?)

Re: Friday Night Is Music Night on BBC4 TV

January 30th

Not worth giving the whole evening's scheduling, but there's a programme on at 22:00 (repeat 01:30) that may tickle a few ears, though not Blues, certainly as we know it.....

Kraftwerk: Pop Art.

Documentary telling the amazing story of how a group of reclusive Rhineland experimentalists called Kraftwerk became one of the most influential pop groups of all time. It is a celebration of the band featuring exclusive live tracks filmed at their Tate Modern shows in London in February 2013, interwoven with expert analysis, archive footage of the group going back to 1970, newsreel of the era and newly shot cinematic evocations of their obsessions. With contributions from techno pioneer Derrick May, Can founder Holger Czukay, DJ and remixer Francois Kevorkian, graphic design guru Neville Brody, writer Paul Morley, band photographer Peter Boettcher, Tate Modern curator Caroline Wood and others.

Kraftwerk are very much in the news at the moment as they are currently playing a week of concerts at the New National Gallery in Berlin (to follow other concert-events including those at the Tate, Sydney Opera House , New York's MOMA etc), the first international academic conference on the group, 'Industrielle Volksmusic for the C21', is to be held at Aston University on January 21st/22nd, and interest has been stirred by recent books exploring the group in the context of Krautrock such as David Stubbs's Future Days.

Wonder if they'll include this:-  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJBVglgufyY    Probably not.
