Links for the week

Everyone knows by now about the recent discovery of a manuscript copy of Beethoven's Grosse Fuge transcribed for piano; Tom Service at the Guardian explains why this is important. Meanwhile, Service, in his more familiar contemporary music guise, gives an appropriately tongue-in-cheek account of an email interview with "celestial being" Karlheinz Stockhausen.

The Telegraph asks, uncertainly, can Grime cut it in the USA?.

Kid Kameleon, writing for Riddim Method, posts a great potted history of history of Jungle by DJ Zinc - 85+ tracks in 5 minutes. KK has some good commentary too.

And at WFMU, a Scottish pop-rock album on nothing; and a handy primer-summary of the daft JibJab-Legendary KO copyright squabble. Bigger picture, anyone?

Apologies for sloppy blogging recently; the usual problems of being over-worked and under-organised. I seem to be in a loop of starting good ideas and then getting too distracted to finish them.
