Well, I am not going to pretend that this week’s list represents either the best 11 songs I own, or even the best 11 songs by my favourite artists.
What it is, though, is 11 songs by artists that I like but who I generally don’t rave about. One or two might be a surprise to regular ‘Spillers who know my tastes run to vintage prog, 80s alt-rock, post-rock and other exotica.
The rules are pretty much as before; you must vote one or more of these songs off the list and say why. I’d like to add a refinement this week which is this; if you could only vote to keep ONE tune, which one would it be and why?
Amazingly, I note, this is my first ‘Spill post of 2012. Memo to self: Must Do Better.
And here are the tracks;
King Sunny Ade – Ja Funmi
Frank Zappa – I’m The Slime

Laura Nyro – Eli’s Coming
