The weekend’s here. Hurrah.
My enjoyable trawl through the wonderful world of Jonathan Richman continues and if you insist I tell you my favouritist song of this moment then I will reply, as quick as a flash, it’s…
Jonathan Richman - I was dancing in a lesbian bar
^ If that doesn’t put a smile on your face and get you grooving round the room then seek medical attention.
Is life not quite panning out as you might have hoped. Fear not. Here’s Will Powers to provide the solution.
You probably already know that Will Powers is photographer Lynn Goldsmith who slowed the recordings of her voice to make the spoken word sections sound male whilst reading from self-help manuals…
Will Powers – Adventures in Success
^ Make it happen, make it happen, make it happen…. There’s a great dub version of this track for anyone that likes that sort of thing (and what right thinking person doesn’t?)
This has been a good week for those that love Vic Godard, especially those that live in the South East of England. Not only has “1979 Now!” finally arrived, but Vic ‘n the Subway Sect played in Brighton last night and I was grooving down the front and loving every minute. Vic is the dictionary definition of that much overused epithet “legend”.
Vic Godard & The Subway Sect – Born To Be A Rebel
^ This is my favourite track from ”1979 Now!”. In fact I love it so much I’m going to make a video for it, as all the versions on YouTube are live recordings. Watch this space.
A lot of modern music passes me by these days but I always thought Hard Fi had some great tunes and there’s none better than the perfect punky pop of…
Hard Fi - Hard To Beat
And finally, and for no particular reason other than it’s an infectious fun pop song…
Dream Warriors – Wash Your Face In My Sink
Th-th-that’s all folks.
Have a wonderful weekend.
