Robert Jan Stips - Greyhound

The cd player in my car is broken and had been for a couple of weeks. It won't eject the disc. I'm still enjoying to the cd that's in the player. Robert Jan Stips is a musical hero and 'Greyhound' is one of the best things he's done.

Here’s a list of films.

Thinking specifically of films made in black and white, this is the first twenty one that came to mind

The night of the hunter
Eyes without a face
Brighton rock
The Haunting
Le dolous
Bob le flambeur
Le deuxieme souffle
La belle and le bete
Citizen kane
The third man
Touch of Evil
Odd man out
Hour of the wolf
The criminal
Branded to Kill
The servant
Knife in the water
Who’s that knocking at my door

Boudewijn de Groot – Nact en Ontij

I’ve been listening to this for the first time in a few years tonight. It’s an essential album for me. One that I return to again and again and again since first hearing it in an attic in den Haag seven years ago.
Although it would be next to impossibble for me to decided on a list of all time top ten albums, ‘Nact en Ontij' would be on it.
