1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    However, as Radiohead haven’t contributed their interpretation, I won’t be buying.

    It would be interesting to know if these are proper quality recordings and where they were recorded. Each recording would have a different ambient noise. I always though that the original recording did have some noise in it and was not completely silent.

    No - that was part of the point of the composition.

    I've only just realised that LCD Soundsystem's 45:33 is a reference to this. I'm a bit slow!

    I took a couple of my teenagers to a Warp/meltdown gig, and JG was given a space for 4'33'.

    We did explain beforehand what it was about, nothing, thinking time, etc.

    Their music teacher was astonished that any pupil had not heard this. Tis' good to get credits from the yooth, even though I am a has been.
