Good morning campers, Autumn is upon us and I have harvested some fresh Earworms for you. If you have an earworm you’d like to share, please send an .mp3 or a link to firstname.lastname@example.org, together with a few lines about why you’ve chosen it. Many thanks to all contributors.
Hariprasad Chaurasia, Shiv Kumar Sharma – Twilight Zone – Ravi Raman: From a wonderful album called Shikara By Moonlight. Though I don’t know why Chaurasia is credited here, as it is all Sharma on santoor.
The Tuts – Let Go Of the Past – severin: All female British trio, currently playing the circuit to great acclaim. Feminist and often anti-nostalgic lyrics. They have caused a bit of controversy with a couple of run-ins with gig promoters. Great music though. I saw them supporting The Rezillos last year and was hugely impressed.
Angel Forrest – Hold on Tight, Mr. I’m Alright – tincanman: Canada’s queen of live blues wrote this song about lead guitarist Ricky Paquette. It’s strictly low-budget touring Canada’s bars and small halls, most of it in a van, but Ricky never complains. “Any time I ask him if he’s hanging in there his answer is always the same: ‘I’m all right.”
The Skullers – Meet Me In Memphis: A welcome bit of rock amongst all the synth pop, this is the new single from The Skullers, an NJ based band whose forthcoming EP, Meet The Skullers, is due out on September 22nd via Mint 400 Records.
