I have managed to break my wrist so this intro will be short – thanks for the brilliant worms and please keep them coming to email@example.com. More potential ‘Spill points on offer from tinny, today. Enjoy!
Glasvegas – Santa Monica (demo) – AliM: Short but sweet.
Haunted House – Shoulders – ghe: I’ve tempted the earworm massive with Brighton’s Lianne Hall before. Now based in Berlin she is one half of Haunted House, with Orbital’s Paul Hartnoll. Here’s a remix off the latest EP, with a nice bit of wormy incantation, and an invitation to climb on her shoulders.
Syd Arthur – Garden of Time – bethnoir: I confess to being a fan of Gong, Caravan and even a bit of Hatfield and the North so it kind of makes sense that I’d like a band from Canterbury with a similar feel to those bands. These guys wear lovely jumpers, one of them is Kate Bush’s nephew and they take their name from Syd Barrett and the Kinks’ character, Arthur (surely a nod to Buddha too?), relax and enjoy.
Otis Taylor – Rain So Hard – Leavey: Where to start without sounding too effusive but I have tincanman to thank for this discovery (he’s got such good taste). He suggested Otis’s Coming With Crosses for my last RR Stint and I mentioned I’d have to look up his extensive back catalogue, well I am doing so and this one off of Clovis People, Vol. 3 is a stand out track. My he’s got a fabulous ‘gravelly’ voice over that insistent beat and a bit of brass in there too, brings me out in goosebumps.
-??- Sous Le Soleil Exactement – tincanman: Who on earth is that singing this Serge Gainsborough song? And for a whole heap of Spill points, what Jack of all trades is on guitar?
The Wailers – Pass It On – goneforeign: Note it’s ‘The Wailers’, from before the advent of BM&W. This is from 1973’s album ‘Burnin’; Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, Bob, Family Man, Carlton Barrett & Wire Lindo. Possibly written by Bunny: “Be not selfish in your doings, Pass it on – Help your brothers in their needs, Pass it on – Live for yourself – you will live in vain. Live for others – you will live again. In the kingdom of Jah Man shall reign, Pass it on …”
