Articles about Music

Hmmmm… this was rather an unexpected find – but a good one none the less…

I was looking at some WordPress themes I had just bought and it had a sample video – the Max Payne trailer – and the music was so good it prompted me to do a search on Google for Max Payne soundtrack mp3 and sure enough I found a page with a playlist from the soundtrack and it streams in high quality

Oddly enough the music reminds me a bit of Icehouse. An Aussie band that broke big in the USA about 10 years ago. Icehose cd’s always had a fair share of atmospheric haunting soundscapes and one cd of theirs in particular was great – it was mainly remixes – I forget the name – but of you ever get a chance to grab an Icehouse cd of remixes – I say give it a go!

note: I looked it up and sure enough I found the cd – it’s “Full Circle”

Icehouse has some other remx cd’s… those might be good too…

As for the music on the Max Payne page – not bad! Sometimes soundtrack music can be really boring – but this is perfect background music – not too ovewhelming for working. Give it a listen!

Group 87 Live Video

Wow! This is a flashback to my past! I found a video clip of Group 87 performing live!

For those who aren’t familiar with Group 87 – this was a super group of sorts featuring Patrick O’Hearn, Terry Bozzio, Pete Maanu and Mark Isham. Man they could jam!

When I lived in the SF BAy Area we used to go see these guys regularly. In fact I do have a few audio bootlegs of them somewhere.
