It sounds amazing! Like a Kraftwerk's Tour de France, but played by a human being, with a beating heart inside his chest!


Well, part of the brief from the film's director favoured something along Kraftwerk lines...but I have to admit that I wasn't really sure of that approach, mainly because Kraftwerk had already made an album inspired by the Tour de France and, as much as I enjoyed Kraftwerk back in the '70s and early '80s, I harbour no nostalgia for that style...unless quoted as a kind of kitsch homage.


I didn't hear any Kraftwerk at all but now when listening to 'Bicycle Building' I hear what one could say possibly sounds something a bit like the main 'Autobahn' melody played on a Franco/Mediterranean keyboard (accordion). :) :wink:

May I point out that John Foxx cheekily considers himself the only person to have "discovered" that 'Autobahn' is really an homage to The Beach Boys' 'Barbara Ann'?

I've only seen the clip on Vimeo but I have to say the music married perfectly with the images.......that is an exceptional skill. Well done Bill!

I listened on Saturday to the new CD. I was full of optimism for the rest of the CD after hearing the first track. I hate to say it but I was a little disappointed with the remaining tracks. I have recorded the BBC4 programme and hope to listen to the tracks that made it to film in context as soon as possible, hoping that my mind can be changed. If not, am I allowed one 'not so favourite' Bill CD without getting abuse from those who like it? Sorry... :cry:


Give it a few more runs TH1974 and it may become a favourite. I say this, cause when I first heard Fables and Dreamsongs, it didn't sink in with me at all. Yet a couple of plays about five months down the line and it became a classic to my ears. However, if the Pedalscope does not appeal to you, then of course its cool to say so as I think most if not all us in Dreamsville will understand and still value your posts. In fact, I'm sure there are one or two songs or complete albums that some people find don't reach the pinnacle. I'm struggling to think of which ones though! LOL. Chris :)


Expectations are always so high when we first unwrap the magic disc and listen for the first time! I've learned not to get too "up" for each new recording, but to let it sink in slowly as others have mentioned. When you least expect it, the music will touch you and you will then be under its spell.... Also, put Pedalscope on random and see what happens. :idea: 8) The music will find you in the right mood and vice versa sooner or later! :wink:
(BTW Pleasure Bikes is awesome! :D)

(Howdy, Lou!)

Reporting in from Tampa, Florida: Received mine on Monday afternoon, super-pleased. Even tested it on my oldest player, and could not duplicate any sort of skip or unregistered tracking.

A perfect assembly of Nelsonics.

Cheers,
Roger

Great picture. Question - does Bill Nelson come under "N" alphabetically within your overall CD shelving? I have a whole row (and more) now devoted to Bill's CDs and that is spanning some 5 foot or more in width, all on the top shelf - set apart from the other music!

Sad I know but I order them chronologically too (gotta be a bloke thing) - not easy to remember when I have taken a few down from the shelf to play left pondering: does "Clocks and Dials" go back before or after "Mazda Kaleidoscope" in the running order? :?
