Music In Crime Fiction #4: Χίλντα Παπαδημητρίου - Έχουν Όλοι Κακούς Σκοπούς

"Ανυπομονούσε πολύ να γυρίσει ο αδελφός της. Της είχε υποσχεθεί ότι θα ξεμπέρδευε από τις δουλειές του μέχρι τα μέσα της επόμενης εβδομάδας, και θα τη συνόδευε για τρεις τέσσερις μέρες στην Αίγινα. Ο Φάνης δεν υπήρχε περίπτωση να πάρει άδεια πριν από το Δεκαπενταύγουστο, αλλά ακόμη και τότε βαριόταν αφόρητα στο εξοχικό της. Δεν ήταν τύπος των διακοπών, δεν του άρεσαν η απραξία και η θερινή…

Garbage

No idea where to start or where to end with this group. Absolutely perfect sound and execution onm all their songs, album or live versions.

They returned with a concert last year to remind why it is that when I  listen to one of their songs, I need to listen to another one, and another one, and another one, and another one...

Bent instruments, bent music

This website is definitely not for the faint-hearted: http://bentstruments.com/

To quote them, it's about "a multitude of modified toys, real instruments, found sounds, BEER, homemade goodness not from a can as well as circuit bent weirdness"

Try some mp3's here for example: …

Danny Cox

A personal friend and neighbor for a while. When Danny heard I'm from Greece he invited me to his room where a map of Greece decorated the wall above his desk. At the time I had no idea he had any discography, just that he was a musician. That was back in 1977-78 in Kansas City, Missouri. He even asked me…

Music In Crime Fiction #3: James Lee Burke - Dixie City Jam

"The nightclub up on Napoleon was crowded, the noise deafening, and I couldn't see Clete at any of the tables. Then I realized that an exceptional event had just taken place on the bandstand. The fat Man, the most famous rhythm and blues musician ever produced by New Orleans, had pulled up in front in his pink Cadillac limo, and like a messiah returning to his followers, his sequined white coat and coal black skin almost glowing with an electric purple sheen, had walked straight through the…

Music In Crime Fiction #2: James Lee Burke - A Stained White Radiance

"I passed the old prison cemetery, where those who die while incarcerated do Angola time for all eternity; the bulldozed and weed-grown foundations of the sweat boxes on Camp A (there had been two of them, upright, narrow cast-iron places of torment, with a hole the diameter of a cigar to breathe through, the space so tight that if a convict collapsed his knees and buttocks would wedge against the walls); the crumbled ruins of the stone buildings left over from the War Between the States…

Music In Crime Fiction #1: James Lee Burke - Black Cherry Blues

"The rain spun in the yellow arc lights over the cafe parking lot. It was empty inside, except for a fat Negro woman whom I could see through the service window in the kitchen, and a pretty, redheaded waitress in her early twenties, dressed in a pink uniform with her hair tied up on her freckled neck. She was obviously tired, but she was polite and smiled at  me when she took my order, and I felt a sense of guilt, almost shame, at my susceptibility and easy fondness for a young woman's…
