Aye, Mary-Anne and Cerys are a must on Sundays though I forsook Cerys this morning for some finishing up the garden with Neil Hannon - firstly Casanova then the cricket album. Lovely.
The dial is hit on Saturdays when Huey comes on though, there is a touch of the bluffer about Mr. Morgan... and stays off until Craig Charles joyful evening gig. _________________ "I'm playing all the right notes. But not necessarily in the right order."

craig clashes with beatsurrender on beebtoon, and having a choice of decent radio is such an enchanting chore. before DQF decimated localradio weeknights, nick roberts' old friday night long "more than soul" was always his better show, mind.
that peewee ellis/fred wesley fight club was brilliant.
quite liking guests are like fish so far, which isn't something one says about new home service comedies that much these days.
going to see la roux in november. the new album is in the post
last week i got royksopp & robyn album and the delines album (new project from members of richmond fontaine and the decembrists among others. willy vlautin is one of the richmond fontaine members that is also in the delines. currently reading his new novel the free)
Only 4 more sleeps tip the Electric Picnic! Looking forward to some or all of the following:
Pet Shop Boys
Hercules & Love Affair
Dimitri from Paris
Will Self and the god-like genius of Julian Cope should make the literary tent even more interesting, too. Of course the rain forecast for Friday and Saturday should sit nicely on top of what tipped down yesterday and today so it should be nice and quagmireish - oh well...
Was doing a batch of CD ripping this week and came across this unknown one on the other half pile. Signed by the artist and made out to the Mrs. in her name. So I Google to find out more and he's from New York and I'm left wondering how the hell that has happened
Haven't got around to Richard D just yet but I will. Been listening to Rocket Juice & the Moon recently (the Damon Albarn, Tony Allen and Flea thing) and the rather amazing Omar Souleyman who blew us away at the Electric Picnic a few weeks ago. This reminded me of the famous Aphex Twin Lemonheads remix tale...
I'm going to see Bjork's Biophilia movie on Monday night in the IFC, so I will be thinking of him as he was central in her middle and late (and best) work. Love is the message... _________________ "I'm playing all the right notes. But not necessarily in the right order."
One for Biosphere - Orbital split (again) after 25 years. BTW if ye get a chance to see Bjork's Biophilia movie, take it and enjoy... _________________ "I'm playing all the right notes. But not necessarily in the right order."
It's a loss for all of us I wasn't particularly bothered when they called it a day the first time around, but I was surprised by the quality of comeback album so it's a better one to have finally gone out on.
Read this today and thought it was bizarre given that the original is one of the best soundtracks of recent years. Cant really see how the likes of Eric Prydz fits in.
When I finished ROFLing at the concept of the Bram Stoker Festival that Dublin has decided it can no longer be without this holiday weekend, I noticed that the Beautiful Noise movie has its long overdue premiere as part of the gothic festivities - the story of Cocteau Twins, J&MC and MBV. I might well give it a go, and in fairness there are a couple of other attractions as part of it that are worth attending. I might pass on the Vampwire and Literary death Match though...
