    Walker Brothers - The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine

    Had an urge.  My most favourite song, ever.  When Scott sings   Scott Walker plays the Bradford Odeon, it’s 1966; he’d recently gone solo after a string of Walker Brothers’ hits.  There are queues around the corner and for the Ladies, and at the bar.  All of the...

    Billy Bragg - A New England

    Billy just got a Folk Award and was being interviewed.  He disclosed how he'd felt when he found out that George Osborne  (the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Conservative Fascist) was a big fan.  Billy Bragg, Hats Off, what a bloke.

    My friend called my name several times across

    the gym, but "Shots-broiler remix" by Imagine Dragons was playing full blast in my ears. I didn't noticed him until he got in my face for a handshake! If I'm listening to music, chances are that I'll just ignore you by accident! 😝😝😝😝

    Andy Williams - Solitaire

    I once wrote a poem reminiscing about sitting in a pub on my own, lovelost, drinking and smoking heavily, whilst listening to this song on the jukebox. So, on the day of Mr Williams’s very sad demise, this is about as miserable as it gets.

    Woody Guthrie - Mean Talking Blues

    "I'm an organized famine -- studyin' how I can be a little bit meaner."My favourite Woody Guthrie song.  As true today as it ever was.

    Mountain Goats - Dilaudid (marrtronix Version)

    This jumped out at me from a mixtape the other day.  Raw, geezer with a guitar, passion and desperation.  Love it.

    Nick Drake - Pink Moon lp

    No really hippy songs, no bland or smothering arrangements, just basic beautiful music all the way through its bare half an hour. Hope and despair.

    Berlin - Lou Reed

    Wooing me with tales of bar singers and the debauched sips of Dubonnet, the Lou Reed album ‘Berlin’ always lures me in.  The arrangements are (mostly) a joy and the songs poignant.  He’s always clumsy making social statements but once he gets into the interpersonal he...

    Herman Dune - Sticky Fingers

    Classic power chord driven rock, enhanced (for your pleasure) with a blockbuster visual experience. Let the speakers crackle and burn.

    I've found myself getting a little emotional about this particular tune this week.  Love, killer hooks, sweetness.  Don't know what's happening to me. fee

    Brainiac - Hot Metal Dobermans

    Should say about today.  Great right now, 10 minutes after my cannabis score, grim before.  Went to bed without any last night.  It’s been 89 hours, 34 minutes, and 3 seconds since my last tobacco.  Not that I’m counting.  Got some Health Shop smoking mixture for spliffs...

    Cage - Ballad Of Worms

    Behind the times, as ever,  I only heard this recently.  I'm suck(er)ed in by the awful truth and the guts of the rapper.  The tale it tells, the way he tells it.  It's kind of unpleasant but holy.

    I love to get lost in music.

    It just calms me down from any depressing situation. I listen to rap but I know 3 rappers and their music is just AMAZING. I listened to a lot of female voices when I was younger, mostly because of my sister. She was obsessed with Beyoncé back in like 2007. There use to be...

    Florence And The Machine - Rabbit Heart (raise It Up)

     Not my sort of thing usually but there something about it that had big fat tears rolling. Must be worth something for that.

    Justice - Cross

    This album builds with tension.  Starting with some cut up prog-rock samples, through a few fantastic pop songs (including 'timed' handclaps and Ghostbusters-type synth choruses), it moves through moods and emotions until ending with a blast of  blistering techno...

    Rudimental - 'Not Giving In'

    It's always good to hear something new(ish) that makes me want to wave my arms in the air and cry at the same time. Drum n Bass, a life affirming message...I don't know what's wrong with me.This track kicks arse, big time.

    Bought a new car, pretty good; it has speakers and a CD but, horror of horrors, it’ll only play ‘Shop Bought’ CDs, thus, ruining my life.  Did Citreon have some kind of deal with the record company scum?  Anyway, I’ve had to go and find albums that I like all the way...
