Stoner

December 13th, 2010

‘Stoner’ is a perfect title for this EP, actually it is an excellent definition of my past state, and now when I don’t get high or drink, music makes me fly, and ‘Stoner‘ does it to me big time.

Matilda and Marc AKA Valleys the create a haunting world of their own, using technology mixed with lots of heart and some great kicking ass guitars and make the music I would have been proud to make. Check out this extraordinary ‘Ordinary dream’.

I ran with love but I couldn’t keep up

December 12th, 2010

I have read critics saying tha Moshi Moshi artist Louis Jones AKA Spectrals new song “I Ran With Love But I Couldn’t Keep Up” sounds like a 50`s song, or 60`s or maybe 70`s. I don’t know what they are talking about. To me it sounds like an 80`s British new wave/ pop/ alternative guitar song, beautiful axe sounds, great song and great art….oops sorry, art by me…

After the fire

December 9th, 2010

So so sad. This is Nissan Cohen after the fire.( Read the previous article )


The Nisco pages

December 6th, 2010

The deadly fire that have raged for 4 days in the northern part of Israel, took the lives of 41 people.

The blaze, the worst in Israel’s history consumed about 10,000 acres of forest and about four million trees.

One of villages that were severely damaged was Ein Hod, an artist village located at the foot of the Carmel mountain.

About a year ago I have discovered a gem located just outside the village in a wild looking house viewing the Mediterranean sea. The Nisco museum of music boxes and mechanical music, the life work of Nissan Cohen, who I have met in New York, when he had this wonderful store on the upper west side, a shop called The Last Wound Up.. This amazing place contains one of the finest collections of antique music boxes and other mechanical musical instruments. The collection that has been accumulated and very well maintained over 40 years by Nissan Cohen, the founder,  and contains music boxes, hurdy gurdies, an automatic organ, player pianos, 150 year old manivelles, the oldest gramophones you have ever seen, hand operated player pianos and many other antique and peculiar musical instruments.

The master himself conducted on the grand tour which had comprised of  a demonstration, a fascinating lecture and a concert. You were granted the rare opportunity to hear those heavenly instruments and were exposed to sounds you had never heard before.

The museum was completely burned and destroyed by the fire and my documentation of each and every instrument of this amazing collection, might be the only full documentation left of Nissan`s life work.
