10cc - The story of 10cc

I've seen this documentary about 10cc three times now and it is a fascination tale of dogged determination, sheer hard work and raw talent. Also you get to see just how incredibly influential they became.

As a footnote: They created and built Strawberry Studios in Stockport which became Martin Hannett's favourite recording venue and where Joy Division's 'Unknown Pleasures' was made.

If your liking this "post rock" ambient stuff, try and grab a listen to Hammock unless you are already familiar with them.
I wish you hadn't said that - it's turning into an expensive month on the CD-purchase front. :o

Hammock - just ordered 'Oblivion Hymns', 'Mysterium' and 'Departure Songs'.
This is truly music that makes you feel like you're surrounded by angels.

Heavenly. :pray:

Gave it a play and found it quite enchanting.
I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way
