Re: recent favorite Loping CDs...

   Also, heavy rotation from a band called Telectu. This is a duo from 
Portugal, and they seem to be largely unknown outside of certain 
European jazz circles. Not strictly looping music, but to my ears there 
seems to be quite a bit on albums like Evil Metal and Theremin Tao. The 
guitarist part of the duo, Victor Rua, plays this mutant 18 string 
midified geetar.
   Practically the only place to find Telectu CD's is Chris Cutler's ReR 
Megacorp or if you are lucky enough to live in Manhattan, Downtown 
Music Gallery.


Probably the best English profile of Telectu is here;
