3 December 2012

Packed the box for tonight and didn't get anywhere near playing it all.

Mystery Jets - Saviour (The Hale Bop)
John: New one from these off the album Radlands which was out earlier this year

Boards of Canada - Dawn Chorus
John: Seeing as the Bank of England is about to be run by a Canadian
Carolyn: Didn't like that at all
John: Ten years old, off 2002's Geogaddi

Foals - Inhaler
John: New one from these off Holy Fire which comes out in February. Bit of a harder edge to previous stuff.

Cover Version Corner
Paul Revere and the Raiders/Modern Rocketry - (I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone
John: There are dozens of covers of this. We could have chosen the Sex Pistols, Minor Threat, Johnny Thunders, The Farm... Instead, we went for Modern Rocketry's 12" mix on the basis this is supposed to show two totally different interpretations. That was from 1983, Paul Revere from 1966.

Tame Impala - Mind Mischief
John: New from these off the album Lonerism
Carolyn: Really like that. We've had a few from these before haven't we?
John: We have. One of the albums of the year

The Damned - New Rose
John: Their debut single from 1976. They played Leeds last week and stormed it.

Delphic - Baiya
John: It went a bit '80s in the middle there.
Carolyn: It started a bit '80s and stayed there. Not that there's anything wrong with that
John: That's off the album Collections which comes out in January

Majestyy - The Notion
John: With two Ys, that's available as a free download from their Soundcloud page

One Degree of Separation
Martin Rossiter - Drop Anchor
Gene - Haunted By You
John: The Gene track is from 1995 and their debut album Olympian. They were notable for being a bit Smiths-esque
Carolyn: A bit? Very.
John: Martin Rossiter took a long sabbatical and is back with this single which is off the album The Defenestration Of St Martin which came out last week and is a sublime piece of song writing

Nathan Fake - Paean
John: Off the album Steam Days, that's out sort of now-ish. I think

Seasick Steve - Don't Know Why She Loves Me But She Do
John: Love that. If that hasn't got your foot tapping, something's wrong.
Carolyn: Mine was going
John: He's 71 (to the best of anyone's knowledge) is Steven Gene Wold and makes a lot of his own instruments. I've seen him play a single-string contraption, guitars made from hubcaps, cigar boxes... That's off last year's album Can't Teach An Old Dog New Tricks

Miike Snow - Paddling Out
John: With two Is
Caarolyyn: I'm going to start spelling my name with two As and two Ys
John: Miike Snow is Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg from Stockholm and that's from 2010's album Happy To You
