Diamanda Galás with John Paul Jones

February 14, 2007

The Sporting Life


Diamanda Galás with Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones? What hath God wrought?
This is probably the closest thing to a rock album from this dark diva. Jones’ bass playing compliments Galás’ voice quite well. From the pulsing Do You Take this Man? to the menacing rape revenge of The Sporting Life.  It’s all dovetailed by the haunting Skotoseme and Hex.

Truly an odd pairing, but rewarding nonetheless.




  1. hi, chardman – i just want to inform you, that wordpress just took my blog on ice. it wasn’t obviously the best idea to switch to them… well, my step across the ‘border’ was maybe a step too much.

    cu, l.

  2. NO WAY!
    I can’t believe it! I wonder why the hell that happened!
    We’ll keep checking you out at Oranj Aural.

  3. I appreciate that you took the time to add me to your links. I had already added your site to my links, so I just wanted to let you know. I especially like your informative blog updates and the Fall posts. Keep up the good work, and check back soon for some cool stuff on Eclectic Grooves.

    Later, Kevin
