You posted about them a good while back and I liked what I heard, but never pursued it further. I'm definitely going to now. They're great. I see eMusic has the mp3 and will probably get that, but I wonder if there is anything in the cd packaging to make it more desirable

I must say, I'm surprised to hear of your fall from Beatlemaniac grace.

I don't think there is anything in the CD packaging that is important.

Steam punk?

Steampunk:

I don't see a connection with the band though.

Yes, I am familiar with the term. I think Robert put it there to be funny, you may not agree with me about music but I hope you like steampunk! :)

I was once engaged to a woman who made steampunk jewelry. And I do like Tim Powers and James Blaylock. But that's about as far as it goes with me.

There a good bit of steampunk in Ghibli films, and I like them.

I was basically thinking of this: "the essence of steampunk is homage to vintage fashion with a modern, sassy twist"

Glad I read that linked Wikipedia entry on steampunk. Have seen the term but that’s all. And never really knew just what to make of the movie Brazil, but the entry says it “was an important early cinematic influence that helped codify the aesthetics of the genre”.

Hmm, that never would have occurred to me, but then I don't really remember that much about the movie.

I must be one of a very few Sixties relics who don't know that Led Zeppelin song.

SHEL are amazing! Your link for the SHEL version of Battle of Evermore is broken. Here's a good link to SHEL's fabulous 2012 performance of that song: https://youtu.be/ogw15jdM_Yc

"Blocked on copyright grounds." I knew I had used that link. Anyway, thanks for the good link.
