AND NOW, THE NEWS...

Good evening. Here's what's happening in the world of outsider music. Our top story today:

- Florence Foster Jenkins, "The World's Worst Opera Singer," is not only the subject of the recent Meryl Streep film, but of two books, including one written by ma music bloggin' homie Darryl Bullock, of "World's Worst Records" fame. The other book is supposedly the one that inspired the film. Still not enough? Dig the documentary DVD.

- Was quite surprised and delighted to hear Shooby Taylor the Human Horn in the recent animated film "Sing." 'Twas only a few seconds of "Stout Hearted Man" but still, Shooby's fnally hit the big time! They better include him on the soundtrack album.

- All Eternal Things is a beyond-great blog dedicated to lounge private-press vinyl. The album cover pics are priceless, and the mixes and vinyl rips are hours of good bad listening.

- The Everyday Film, whose recordings were once so elusive, has now thrown up everything (if you'll pardon the expression) on Bandcamp.

From all of us here at M4M news, thanks for watching. Good night!

Thanks for everything you post dear Music for Maniacs.
Please don't forget a recent french film by Xavier Giannoli: "Marguerite" inspired by Florence Foster Jenkins life.

Timmy said...

I don't get it. -- Is this blog done?

Mr Fab said...

Honestly can't say, Timmy! I never seem to have much free time anymore.

Timmy said...

Oh! Well, I understand. I would like to thank you for all the great stuff in the past, that you diligently posted for us all, including insightful information about the posts.
I will check back occasionally ! Take care ~~~~~~~~~~~

A mere two months after Timmy, I get round to seconding that emotion ...

Your blog has been a wonderful resource/source of wonderful "stuff".

Thank you for everything, and I hope that you'll be allowed some free time for yourself, soon.

Please don't vanish like Willard's, you are like a oasis in a musical wasteland.
