Get hip Daddio
Cant beat a bit of African funk.
Taking us back to our tribal beats roots.
198 song 60s and 70s Afro funk playlist anyone? Will have to open in another window for it to work I imagine, dunno.
So many samples have come from these.
I liked the album, quite soothing with a tone similar to that of Paul Simon. The music to Mars reminded me of a horror film back track.
Having a lazy Sunday and catching up on a bunch of free CDs from various magazines. I'm now stuck on the Joachim Cooder album Over That Road I'm Bound after hearing a track from the Songlines freebie, Top Of The World #162.
It's just perfect as the sun flares through my dirty windows and warms my bare feet. Tea & toast, warmed toes and music making me forget and dream. Cheers.
Don't know how i'd never heard it before, but I think this may be the greatest song of all time (sort of joking, sort of not joking):
Small Faces, mate.
Which reminds me: one of the loudest bands I ever heard was Steve Marriott's Packet of Three. Half Moon Putney - early/mid-80s.
You've never heard it before?
I must have, but never paid it attention. Heard a cover by Joesef (only available on spotify) and loved it!
Original (more offensive) version of Fairytale of New York can be played on Radio 2 but not on Radio 1. How times change.
Happy Christmas your arse.
Jimmy Young would never have stood for that.
A slightly seedy video but John Martyn on top form
Slightly ? Different times....
Mind you it's the only reason I clicked and watched, I mean, listened to the song.
I saw John Martyn live in a chapel about 25 years ago. He came on dressed as a priest, was pissed as a fart, and was absolutely superb.
Dark Adrenaline is a great album.
Love his music but he was a horrible, horrible man.
'Hello Mrs jones, how's your Alf's lumbago?'
One of the best lines ever.
Jimmy young was the first of 4 people to have a UK no 1. With Unchained Melody. The only song to have done so with 4 distinct artists (as opposed to Band Aid which was organised by the same people each time).
When just about to enter the teenage wilderness I persuaded by older sister to buy both Use Your Illusion albums on tape from the former Our Price store in Watford. Not a bad track on either album and always listen to them once in a while. Matt Sorum had come in as drummer along with varied musical influences and plenty of piano. Not to mention some great riffs as on Locomotive and long ballads like November Rain and Coma and the most touching Civil War. A shame what happened to the band as they were at the height of their powers.
Rediscovered Saint Etienne recently. Very different from my punky roots but simple, sublime, bright & breezy pop/dance rhythms from the 90s. Listening to them always cheers me up!
Feeling pretty low at the moment what with covid, Brexit and the lack of a natural left-back seemingly spoken about wherever I go. So, despite the chill I decided to take myself off to church for the first time in, like, forever and met some lovely people. Very friendly, a bit touchy-feely and possibly not quite able to focus on anything in this realm but they seemed alright so will pop in to say hello again tomorrow. I've a good feeling about this gathering.
Can't beat a bit of Billy
Did you meet any natural left backs ?
There was nothing natural about any of them in the end so I put on my DM's and moon stomped the hell out of there...
I liked them too and still have a listen.
If I was made to choose one recording that was tops then it would be this one.
Driving the cold and dampness away with these at the moment.
'Refuge' by Tobias Ben Jacob arrived last week...
and 'Introducing...' by Aaron Frazer will be released on January 8th.
New Order make themselves known to a new generation through the medium of film. A terrible one to be sure although GG is magnificent and a third film is being planned.
I feel like you should come on here and recommend something ‘cool’ or a bit obscure. For example, David Berman, the singer from Silver Jews has started a new band called Purple Mountains and their debut album is brilliant. Fantastic alternative/country album with Berman’s usual self depreciating humour in the lyrics. I met failure in Australia, I fell ill in Illinois, I nearly lost my genitalia to ant hill in Des Moines.
My go to at the minute though? The new Kylie album. **** me its genuinely fantastic.
