    Hi Roger, just thought I would say thanks very much for recommending Dead Can Dance. I looked for 1981-1998 but could not find it and instead bought Wake. Some great tunes, thanks.

  2. There are some new live show cds coming out by the folks who make the cool cd cases, of course it’s the folks at…

    Dead Can Dance has got to be one of the best bands ever. Their sound is truly unique and the voice of Lisa Gerrard is so enchanting.
    @luxuryluke: thanks a lot, now I’ll have to spare my allowance for ten years. I just cannot resist the temptation. Think they’ll be sold out by then? :)
