Anne Briggs Early life[edit] Briggs was born in Toton, Beeston, Nottinghamshire, on 29 September 1944.[1] Her mother died of tuberculosis when she was young. Her father, Albert, was severely injured in World War II and she was raised by her Aunt Hilda and Uncle Bill in Toton, who also brought up Hilda's youngest sister, Beryl, and their own daughter Betty. In 1959 she cycled with a friend to Edinburgh. They stayed overnight with Archie Fisher, who was at that time prominent in the revival of folk music in Scotland, and through him she met Bert Jansch, who had just begun to compose his own songs. Jansch and Briggs had an instant rapport and were to remain influential on one another for several years. - Live flight tracker!

Xenomania: Nothing is Foreign in an Internet Age The internet broke all the rules about music. How we acquire it, how we discover it, how we listen to it...even how we watch it. For over 20 years music journalist Simon Reynolds (Generation Ecstasy, Rip It Up and Start Again) has documented the ever-morphing world of sound...which is now no longer changing as much as blowing apart entirely online. The past is retrievable at a touch, and geographical boundaries are meaningless. In this essay for MTV Iggy, he traces the internet-enabled rise of "xenomania," as it leads to the next frontier, "the future-hunger," of music.

Resonant Frequency: Five Thoughts on Music Scarcity A couple of weeks ago, there was a post on Altered Zones highlighting a track identified only as "AutoTune", a track that had apparently originated somewhere in Niger. The reason the song was identified by country instead of artist, with a title that described the predominant element of the music rather than what it was actually called, is because it was taken from the memory card of a discarded cellphone found on a trip to West Africa, so more precise identification wasn't possible. A number of songs gathered in the same way were assembled onto a cassette release called Music From Saharan Cellphones Vol. 1, put together by the SahelSounds blog, and the origins and details of each are similarly obscure. Most of what we know about these songs from this tape is that someone living in a certain part of the world thought enough of them to put them on their mobiles and, presumably, listen to them. It's not a lot to go on, which is part of the fun.

About NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION (NBHAP) What NBHAP is about The world we live in is becoming more fast-paced and diversified than ever before.

A Profoundly Strange Snippet of Forgotten Rock History Ask Mick Jagger to put on his dream concert these days, and he’ll probably hire Martin Scorsese. Forty-seven years ago, he could do even better: He put the Rolling Stones, the Who and a Beatle on the same stage and made a movie.
