This week, we'll look at foreknowledge and hindsight. The ability to know what might happen and inability to profit from that knowledge. Like Camus' unused train ticket found at his fatal car crash or lyrics of a song made clear over time. We'll visit that paradox with Jamdeluxe, Nihaya, Owen, Tryad, and Coil. I'm Jim Nye.
We'll begin on the shores of Lake Geneva in Lausanne, Switzerland with Jamdeluxe featuring the soulful vocals of MANOO. This is 'My Declaration'
Find more great tracks and a chance to collaborate at www.jamdeluxe.ch Looking back fondly is Nihaya with 'Nostalgik Player'
We last heard from Owen on Episode 45. This is 'Broken Down'
Owen has dozens of free songs at www.electrobel.be/artist/3528 Here is the Seattle-based collective Tryad, channeling Tricky with 'Seduction'
Hear more at www.tryad.org Stephen Thrower, the late John Balance and Throbbing Gristle's Peter Christopherson are the seminal experimental band Coil. We'll close with the prescience of 'The Last Amethyst Deceiver'
