Tuesday Tunes - 11/20/07

I apologize for not blogging much lately. My computer is still down, I have no idea when I'll get it back running again, and I can't really get too comfortable on someone else's computer.

Here's Tuesday Tunes for today:

10 facts about your favorite artist/band

Can I do five facts about two bands instead?

Afro Celt Sound System:

1. They started as a project during a Real World Records recording week in the mid-90s.
2. They've had such spectacular guests as Sinead O'Connor and Robert Plant sing on their albums.
3. They are an incredible live band, but tour very rarely because of costs and logistics.
4. They put out a remix album in 2004 called Pod.
5. They have some core members, but the lineup changes very frequently.


1. They played for Jimmy Carter's inauguration.
2. They had a stable band lineup from about 1990 until last year, when Al Tharp left the band.
3. Michael Doucet is not the only Doucet in the band - his brother David is the guitar player.
4. They are a great live band, and have three live albums so far.
5. They performed at halftime at the Super Bowl one year.

Thanks for playing. I don't think any of the memes are getting much love and blogdrive was being nasty again :)

Oh and I didn't know number 1 on the BeauSoleil list. Neat!
