1. Public Image Limited – This is PIL
I love the defiance of this. My best comparison is Eddie Murphy’s.”Because I’m Gumby, dammit” Still got a question? We’re PIL, dammit. Google it.
2: Screaming Lord Sutch And The Savages – Don’t You Just Know It ~ RockingMitch
Richie Blackmore played lead on this cover of a Huey ‘Piano’ Smith track. One of Blackmore’s finest moments in my book.
3: Young Heart Attack – Mouthful Of Love ~ DarceysDad
Calling all frogs, calling all frogs – this is your ten-second warning to mute your speakers for the next 3m 40s or so. REALLY potty-mouthed metallic mayhem I-N-C-O-M-I-N-N-N-G-G-G-G-!-!-!
4: The Steve Miller Band – Going Down To Mexico ~ Fintan
“53 Studebaker going for broke” ? What’s that feel like? 4×4 A/C. A suspension that takes 100 yards to even out between bumps. 80 feels like 150 mph. And this song. Steve & the boys drop the hammer straight off & don’t ease up. Offered up specially for those only know The Joker.
5: Lia Ices – Little Marriage ~ HoshinoSakura
I sit in my balcony and listen to music as the sun goes down. This is my favourite “sun down” track.
6: Tracey Browne – Kate Rusby ~ Zalamanda
A song about singing. And why not? It’s sort of about celebrity, too – but the gentle sort that the titular Kate Rusby and, indeed, Eddi Reader (who also features) enjoy. As might be imagined from the references, it’s mellow folky stuff, but very nicely done. Quite catchy, too.
