Always brilliant Swedish Television recently showed A "This Is Our Music" episode on Mike Alway. I'd never heard of Alway before - I'm sure that's my fault - but the program was immediately captivating, as Alway (a serial record label runner and underground musical godfather it would seem) talked about music, what he liked about it and how he thought about the music he likes and promotes. I'll have to locate some of the artists he has influenced and get a better feel for what its all about.
The musical samples contained in the TV program were sort of sunlit, impressionist unconstructed music with sufficiently angular and mysterious lyrics.
Parts of the program are available online.
