Caught by the river

Caught By The River Nature Book Reader

Caught By The River recently launched their Nature Book reader. An excellent resource ..featuring one of my favourite books Waterlog by Roger Deakin.

Jimi Goodwin picks one of his favourites, to read Jimi’s review of The Runways and others head over to the reader.

If I had to pick one.. I was lucky enough to grow up on a farm by the River Tweed. So would higly recommend if you are into fishing, the rather old school but fascinating Days and nights of salmon fishing in the River Tweed which was recently re-released and is available to read at google books.

New Birds Flew Backwards Remix

A good way to start the week.. The good folks at Caught By The River in association with Heavenly Recordings are streaming a new remix of Birds Flew Backwards. The remix was done by Chris Watson, one of the founder members of Cabaret Voltaire, now famed wildlife sound recordist. Do check out his website, he’s done some pretty amazing stuff.

Also announced today at Caught By The River, is the second Birdsongs compilation. This time the compilation has been put together by Jimi Goodwin! To get the download, you must sign up with your email address at the site. The download will be sent out to members on Wednesday. So if you are not signed up, do so now! Artwork for the compilation has been done by Matt Sewell, which features a Robin as requested by Jimi.

Also whilst your at Caught By The River, check out the Happy Mondays post featuring some good Factory Records video footage. Great stuff!

A Sunny Day!

Last night whilst scanning the blog for broken links etc I noticed on the Live Traffic Feed that’s on the bottom right hand corner, somebody in Iraq was visiting the blog! That’s pretty damn cool! Whoever you are.. whether your a resident, member of the military whatever – nice seeing you!

Don’t have a great deal to share right now, though the word is news from doves camp is imminent!

Currently enjoying the latest compilation from Caught By The River.. this time its Birdsongs which features an exclusive track from the British Sea Power. If you didn’t get the compilation this time. Make you sure you sign up to the blog for the next one.

I’m also enjoying the music of A Sunny Day In Glasgow, well worth checking out. They play across the US & Eurupe over the next few months.

The Bird Effect Diaries

The diary of the making of a film. and an on going fascination with birds and their accompanying cast of human characters. By Ceri Levy.

Another lovely article at Caught By The River. This time featuring Jimi. Visit Caught By The River.

Also do a bit of poking around on the blog. You’ll also find an article that has Simon Aldred of Cherry Ghost asking the legendry singer-songwriter Bill Callahan a few questions.

The Outsiders

Caught By The River

Sounds like a fantastic show! Really, I haven’t seen the band just yet this year, a couple weeks for me. But they really do sound better than ever live, listening to these videos/bootlegs that have surfaced so far.
