Earache records now have some artists that are more traditional rock or rock/blues (like Blackberry Smoke) or Temperance Movement and they have enjoyed fairly mainstream success. A world away their origins 

Just listened to a couple of tracks by Temperance Movement. - "traditional" is very much the word.

That`s the trouble for an old codger music fan these days. Everything "new" that you hear sounds like a thousand other things you`ve heard a million other times.

Today I was listening to the first Specials album. Never disappoints ?

That's the ears that hear it and what's in between them, U P.

Though there's shed loads of very derivative stuff around, it has to be said.

I have this fear that I'll be enjoying a load of music and more than half it will be the result of Simon Cowell's involvement!

I was reminded I had these two by a discussion on LBC with a representative of a right wing think tank where they described BLM as good salesmanship!  & marketing.

 this one should go on here alongside them

The first Charles Mingus album I ever bought.

Up until a few hours ago I'd never heard of Spanky Wilson. Now after hearing this song... 

...I've been listening to a lot more of her. 😀

There is an excellent version by Ella Fitzgerald as well

Second or third for me. (first was Pithecanthropus Erectus).

I started with Mingus Ah Um.

As we're listening to Chet Baker on the beach in the sand"

Listenin' to sounds of Mingus mellow fantastic."

Tons and tons of irrefutable evidence that the title of this song is completely untrue, but it's such a good song though

I don't know who Alexis Petridis is, but he seems quite bitter about something.

Who will history recall, Petridis or Van Morrison, I wonder?

Judging by what I've heard of Van Morrison's recent work, I suspect Alex is close to hitting the nail on the head. It has been a long time since I heard Morrison sound like he was making an effort - maybe his performance in 'The Last Waltz'. Or perhaps the Bang! Contractual Obligation Album.

An album in the style of The Beatles, generated by artificial intelligence software. Somewhat unsettling, but occasionally it throws up some fascinating passages.

Lo-fi Beatles played backwards. Needs Jeff Lynne to tidy it all up.

If the A.I. generated a version of Helter Skelter, would it be more dangerously suggestive played backwards or forwards?

As a follow-up, and based on the evidence of the A.I. Beatles, here`s my top 5 vocalists whose A.I. concoction wouldn`t sound that different from the real thing in terms of timbre and unintelligibility.

5 - Robert Smith

4 - Lydia Lunch

3 - Elvis Costello

2 - Billy Mackenzie

1- Elizabeth Fraser

The fountains of Wayne.

These somehow completely avoided my radar in the 90s. Now working thru the back catalogue 

If you've just discovered them, you will probably have missed this affectionate mickey-take too.
