Probably the best music player I know of is pogo, written for Ubuntu but as its a python script it plays very nicely on this Debian box. It can be found at and describes itself as 'Probably the simplest and fastest audio player for Linux. Pogo plays your music. Nothing else. It is both fast and easy-to-use. The clear interface uses the screen real-estate very efficiently. Other features include: Fast search on the harddrive and in the playlist, smart album grouping, cover display, desktop notifications and no music library. Pogo is a fork of Decibel Audio Player and supports most common audio formats. It is written in Python and uses GTK+ and gstreamer.'

Here is a screenshot of it in action -

Normally I would just do a partial screenshot showing the programme that I was talking about on its own. But, I've done a full screenshot because it shows my top and bottom panels, still on fluxbox, conky, style and background, all of which I intend to talk about in future postings.
