Shiny, Shiny Boots of Erik Satie

John Cale and Erik Satie are two of my favorite composers, but I never knew they were so close. It's fitting then, that I had Cale's Paris 1919 and Satie's Parade on my iPod for the long Miami-San Francisco flight last week. Now the two dots connect.

Kim - It's times like this (not the American Idol or "Just leave Britney alone!" uploads) that make me think YouTube is the stuff of the gods. I saw this piece referenced on another blog without a link. I searched thinking "there's no way..." and then there it was.

He does have a certain air of Mr. Murray.

Viva la Satie!

Cale's Music for the film "Heat" is one mp3 I've been searching for. I have yet to fine it.

Gavin - If anyone can find it you can. I loved his suite for "I Shot Andy Warhol". It's a perfect companion to "'Drella" with Lou Reed.
