Just digging out all my old Massive Attack, Tricky and Portishead stuff. It all seems to be standing up to the passing of time well- it'll be interesting to see if the new Portishead album sparks a revival.

I've been listening a fair bit to "Salt Peter" by Ruby. It was labelled as trip hop, but although there are some similarities, I don't feel it's a trip hop album.

Absolutely hated it when it came out. Probably because it was such a radical departure from Silverfish that I couldn't follow the sidestep Lesley had taken with the new project. Now with hindsight, I'm warming to it a bit. Not enough to recommend it though.

I managed to get a friend into Snakefarm's album- she was already a down home blues fan, but the crossover of folk/blues really appealed to her.

I'm going to slip my Tunng to her next.

She liked the Terry Callier/Massive Attack single too.

Just one word: "Taj Mahal."
