The Avengers theme tunes are superb. I have a CD by him, 'Cult TV Themes.' Thank you for the heads up.

Toby Keith, the country star, has died of stomach cancer, aged 62. He was a bit too "right-wing" for my tastes, but one cannot deny he was a great entertainer.

Tago Mago, Ege Bamyası and Future Days were Damo Suzuki's triptych of Can albums that changed the face of German (and world) electronik/motorik/krautrock musik.
His influence spread much further than that though as Mark E Smith proved.



RIP Damo.
