Closing tabs

I am in the process of closing tabs which have been open in my browser for some time. These are three of the most recent, and also interesting.

-Dave McKean finally has something like a website.
His name was one of the first things i ever looked for on the internet, now over a decade ago, and for quite the long while i had to make do with the very-excellent-anyway-but-still-not-official, which has been closed for almost a year now.

-Rediscovered Delia Derbyshire experimental tracks, one of which (listenable at the link) sounds like it was made last weekend in somebody's basement but was actually done around 1967 at the BBC's Radiophonic Workshop.

-David Byrne and Brian Eno's new album, the very reassuringly titled Everything That Happens Will Happen Today will be out in a couple of weeks. David himself spills the beans on the project in this blogpost, and an official website is available for when the thing is released into the wild. I'm quite looking forward to this.

More, interesting if possible, content to come. August is a closing loose threads month this year.
