Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Now Wakes the Sea





Back in prehistoric times (it seems), when I was doing my musickal journey around this marble, I sailed at one point into the Enewetak Atoll. It is the second-westernmost atoll of the Ralik Chain of the Marshall Islands. I spoke of JG Ballard & The Terminal Beach on Eniwetok (referred to as "Eniwetok" until 1974, when the U.S. changed its official spelling to "Enewetak" along with many other Marshall Islands place names to more properly reflect their pronunciation by the Marshall Islanders). Between 1977 & 1980, a concrete dome was built on Runit Island to deposit radioactive soil & debris.



Now I present for your aural edification the soundtrack to the JG Ballard short story.

The release includes an 18 page A5 PDF booklet with detailed notes & photographs by Paul Wady (included here).

    1. I don't really know. He has a few other songs, for sure. He discovered he was autistic at the age of 41, having survived that long without being diagnosed, just having people think he was "weird". I know he has a song something like "Twitcher" about autism. You might check also The Paul Wady Experience.
