We’re breezing into March with another eclectic set – you lot never cease to surprise me with the variety of worms you send in. Thanks to all, and keep them coming to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Talking Heads – Once in a Lifetime – Albahooky: Alright we all love the original, but I’m always partial to a re-edit when it can keep the groove going like this.
Beastellabeast – The Final Mistake -Shoegazer : Another stunner from the funky females of post punk series.
We Major – Kanye West– Magicman: This is from Kanye’s 2nd album “Late Registration” and is a wonderfully produced slab of punchy pop with a celebrated verse by Nas. “High over the ground instead of skyscraper, too low making you local, c’mon homie We Major, We Major”.
David Fenton – Fresh Air – DsD: I was reminded of this song – Fenton was the lead singer of The Vapors – when guruing RRSA Faces. Hadn’t heard it for years, decades even! 7″ single is in the pile on the shelf above my head as I sit at my desk, so I blew the dust off, played it, and now have the wormy snippet “…aqualung, aqualung…” stuck in my head. D’oh!
Andy Stott – Luxury Problems – Fuel: I love Andy Stott’s “Luxury Problems” because of the hypnotic undertow to the song and the way it develops and never gets boring due to its constant shifting of sound and beat.
Lee Perry – Dreadlocks in Moonlight – goneforeign: Originally from the 1970’s film “Countryman”, directed by Dickie Jobson and structured around a St. Anne’s Bay fisherman called of all things – Countryman! It’s almost like a documentary of his life. It features my old mate Basil Keane playing the bad guy and is full of reggae. This film is dedicated to Bob Marley and the Wailers whose words and music inspired it, it must be on YouTube, go and see it.
