Vaguely related - Liam Frost's new album includes a duet with Martha Wainwright and it's quite good.

Rufus's Mother Kate McGarrigle is critically ill. I'm finding this very sad because like any artist or musician you like, you feel close to them - you share their thoughts and feelings through their songs and all the life history, family and events that shape those songs.

Kate, of course, is a celebrated musician herself. She has been battling cancer for some time now and I suspect the outcome is not going to be good. Rufus has cancelled a tour to Australia.

I know this is the Del Amitri board and you all tolerate me going on about Rufus so I hope you don't mind me sharing this on here. We all have to go through this pain in our lives and my heart goes out to Rufus just now.

oh, Chrissie, that's so sad! They have a really close relation so it's going to be real hard for him... She played a couple of songs on the piano with Rufus on his last concert here and it was so beautiful. She's a wonderful woman, this makes me sad...

Saw the blog on his MS page - suspected it was his mum.  Very hard for him, I know...  Cry  well, all of them, of course.  Was sad to hear!

I do mind, no one wrote anything on here when Iain lost his dad so why should we have to read about this??

Anyway Rufus is used to pain, every time one of his bum chums sticks there thingy up his swollen red ring.

Talking of ring, don't call calling him now will you : )

Joe sweetie, you're so predicable...how many times are you going to bring up that phone call...I really don't understand why you want everyone to know we had phone sex.

You know this area is 'anything goes' and if you don't like it then don't read it. Please don't make fun of someone's pain at a family death by being crude and insensitive - it's not even remotely funny (even if you wrote it just to get some kind of reaction it's still effing bad).

I'm sorry that Iain's Dad has died too but we're not likely to know that information if he wasn't in the public eye like Kate McGarrigle was.

Oh Crissie you are wrong, it is at least remotely funny.

Now if I lost my remote control and could not turn my TV programs over now that would not be remotely funny....

Rufus's new album is hard work...not sure if I'm getting into it.

I'm going to see his opera next week though...should be interesting.  Smiley

Please excuse me as I know I keep talking to myself on this thread...but what the hell.

Dammit, the song I seem to like best on this album is a bit of a rip off from Les Miserables (unless he's deliberately 'borrowing' the melody. Rufus's song is called The Dream and it sounds like Bring Him Home from Les Mis.

Let me know what you think of the opera - I'd love to hear it.

Am getting into "Lulu" - love the piano playing, even the pedal thumps, which give an eerie but kind of cool vibe to the recording.  But it is less accessible than his other stuff and the artwork makes me wince.  Did he really "borrow" from Les Mis?  Haven't heard that music enough to tell.
