Something to listen to: Bill Drummond

If you haven't heard it yet, there's still five days or so to enjoy Bill Drummond's lecture and question-and-answer session [RealAudio link; expires Thursday evening] from this year's Free Thinking festival in Liverpool.

Drummond races through the history of recorded music and technology, and suggests that in the future, musicians will want to make music for a place and time. He does, however, also admit that quite often he doesn't think things through before putting them into practice.
