1 April 2014

Back after a football-interrupted week.

Wilko Johnson and Roger Daltrey - Keep It To Myself
Glorious. Good old-fashioned blues-rock. And why not? Going Back Home is the album, out now.

††† - The Epilogue
Or Crosses, to you and me. That came out last November.

Fear Of Men - Luna
New stuff from Brighton. The album is Doom and is out on the 22nd of April.

Cover Version Corner
Jefferson Airplane/The Damned - White Rabbit
Still bonkers. That was a non-album single for The Damned in 1980, punkifying the psychedelia of 1967 and the Surrealistic Pillow album.

The War On Drugs - Lost In The Dream
The second single and title track from the album which came out last month. It's full of great stuff like that.

Kigo - Dress
Absolutely sensational. From Brisbane comes this tribute to the shoegaze scene of the early '90s. That is just brilliant. The EP is called Chance and it's superb.

Mourning Birds - Eve Of The Isle
Their second single and the third and easily the longest track we've played by them on the show. The others were about 90 seconds - this a mighty two-and-a-half minutes. More please.

I, Ludicrous - Fabulous
The show is back-loaded with older stuff today, starting with this. From their debut album It's Like Everything Else from 1987.

One Degree of Separation
Muddy Waters - Mississippi Delta Blues
The Standells - Dirty Water
Muddy Waters - Dirty Water. You see? Course you do. First, McKinley Morganfield from 1948 and then some classic garage rock from 1966 and easily their biggest hit. Totally misread by many Bostonians, it's more complaining about the state of the rivers, but was quickly adopted by sporting franchises there.

The Chambers Brothers - Time Has Come Today (part 1)
Just five minutes, not the full eleven and some. Their biggest hit, from 1968 and the album The Time Has Come.

Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - Simple And Sure
Love 'em. Off the forthcoming album Days Of Abandon.

Retroject - Sourbridge
Another track from the Murky Window EP. Keep 'em coming, lads.

Shit Robot ft Reggie Watts - We Got A Love
Excellent Chicago-style house from Dublin's Marcus Lambkin.

Ed Harcourt - Come Into My Dreamland
And to finish on a wind-down, a slice of relaxatory music from the Time Of Dust album that came out in January.

There's this on YouTube:

More next week
