Bit of Richard Dawson's latest nutzoid project:

He's the sort of guy who Googles "murder" for song inspirations. No idea if he did that for this track, but it's pretty great whatever.

Pauline's still around, smart as a whip, too.

Meanwhile, out of all the shouty records out this year, this is probably the best:

That first minute and a half is tremendously menacing. Maybe @ramonmercado can explain the video? Old Irish custom? Or tribute to Beaker from The Muppet Show?

Starting my weekend early doors this week - here's what the shufflegod has gifted me so far.

First off, put simply, the coolest thing you are listening to just now:


Then a hugely underrated hip-hop combo:


Followed by some nice crisp beats:

I think as I’ve got older I’ve come to a realiastion that I mostly like things that are reduced to a consomme. Rich ingredients boiled down and clafified to a simple purity.


Or something that can never be repeated... like feedback. Wire may have been the Fly in the Ointment but Anthrax is a fly in amber..

Been listening to a lot of elderly bald, grey.white British stratocasterists. Never realised how much Herr Knopffler looks more and more like Herr Muehler-Stahl.
He still knows how to wring the neck of a Les Paul GT.

I've watched a lot of footage of him playing over the years and I've not yet seen any where he isn't putting all he has into each song.
I'd like to see him live; I'm sure I'd get my money's worth several times over.

That Berlin gig would have been awesome. Brothers In Arms should be on every playlist. Album and title track.

Watching him, I kind of feel he's trying hard to remember the muse memory that made the playing on the 1985 album so poignant. Misses a few frets. Then he gets caught up in the melody. Where it's all at. Always will haunt me, this track. I love it.

Listening to Soul Music on BBC Radio 4. Each edition is about a different song or piece of music and what it means to various people. Nobody famous, just ordinary folks who have a memory about the tune.
Today it's Joni Mitchell's 'River'.

River

A new series of Soul Music begins with stories of Joni Mitchell's 'River', from her iconic 1971 album Blue. A song about the breakdown of a relationship and of a longing to be elsewhere that has become a melancholy Christmas anthem.

It's coming on Christmas / They're cutting down trees / They're putting up reindeer / And singing songs of joy and peace / Oh I wish I had a river / I could skate away on....
I love that album. Must dig it out.

Next week - Pink Floyd.

Not for purists, but this remix is great because it highlights the incredible drumming going on in the background of the original. It starts of fairly fast, but that's just Pierre Moerlen jogging before the sprint at around 3:40.
