What Are You Listening To - The Reckoning

Recommended Posts

On Friday I saw Wilko Johnson in Hebden Bridge. 61 years of age and he's still the most exciting guitarist in Britain.

:rolleyes:

Pleased to hear it. A genius guitar player and one of my all time favourites.

The Leisure Society - The Sleeper. Just arrived from Amazon and spinning here in the office. Very nice - less folksy than Fleet Foxes, but some good songs, especially the rather gorgeously Simon & Garfunkel-inflected 'The Last of the melting Snow'. Worth checking out.

Sisters of Mercy - Emma - Live at the Albert Hall

For some reason I have always found this song (the sisters version rather than the Hot Chocolate version) rather emotional. Given my current state it rings a bell.

As Max Boyce would annoyingly put it. I was there.

Supersuckers - I Want Drugs - As recommended by ullman ( not drugs the band :D )

Excellent.

Now you just need to get your ears around the rest of 'The Evil Powers Of Rock 'N' Roll'.

Currently enjoying a couple of unusual cover versions, courtesy of Amazon downloads:

  • Aynsley Lister - Crazy. The Gnarls Barkley song given a funky acoustic slide guitar treatment.
  • Easy Star All Stars - A Day in the Life. From the album 'Easy Star's Lonely Hearts Dub Band'.

Both mighty fine. B)

All three Cymande albums, set to shuffle (with 'Rastafarian Folksong' deleted first). Cool music for hot weather. B)
