14th June 2010: Japan, Glastonbury, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti

Ultravox’s Midge Ure is looking to organise benefit concerts to raise funds for Japan bass player Mick Karn who is suffering from terminal cancer. Apparently Karn’s family are in financial difficulty, and there is a distinct possibility that David Sylvian and other members of Japan will reform in support of the ailing star.

With the festival season approaching the BBC have opened an excellent Glastonbury micro site which details events and music over the last 40 years.

The excellent “Before Today” by Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti is reviewed in today’s archive. The album gets a weighty recommendation from The Hackskeptic.
