Sirocco - Wetland Suite

A truly fitting piece of music for the weather
we are having at the moment here
mid February in Brisbane.

This masterpiece from the amazing Sirocco evokes both the
humidity and the rich soundscape of the wetlands.
This 1993 album was the result of an event in the endangered
Macquarie Marshes in NSW where they played the Suite.
A wonderful piece of music as is all of Siroccos work,
unfortunately it has been lost in time.
A previous Sirocco post that tells you all about the band can
be found here
I saw these guys many times back in the 90's and they once
put on a gig which is one of the most memorable I have ever seen.
You can read about that on the older Sirocco post!

So if your somewhere that hot and sweaty than this should
fit the mood, or if your in one of those places that are in
deep freeze at the moment this may warm you up!

Hi Bob,

not really the right place for this, but thought you might be interested in a recent post on a UK blog about Spring Hill Fair, which links to a long fanzine article on the Go-Bs etc.

Cheers,
Duncan.
