December 2019

Sleaford Mods – Kebab Spider

‘Of course we’re fucking relevant’…. perhaps the highlight from Eton Alive.

Sleaford Mods – Big Burt

Perhaps apart from Big Burt; complete with ice-in-the-vein lyrics attacking music journalists…

Prefab Sprout – Bonny

Stood around waiting for District Attorney to start and this belter comes on. I forgot how much I missed it. I spend the days with my vanity.

Prefab Sprout – Cars and girls

An evening in the company of the Sprouts digs out what may be my favourite track ever released by a band from the North East of England. What perfect pop from Paddy Mac. Just look at us now…

La Roux – Guillable Fool

Lovely little pop tune with a cracking early 90s style video. Had this on repeat the morning it came out; very nice.

Harry Styles – Lights up

I got very swept up in the Style’s promotional skit for the new album; who says the young can’t teach the old? I’m not ever going back.

Oh Sees – Poisoned Stones

Number 62 on the Mojo list hits me hard in the face; especially this 60’s/funk/metal belter.

Neon Waltz – Dreamers

A really disappointing live show still doesn’t detract from the Waltzer’s being one of my favourites this year. Abide by the rules that were set before us, like nobody moves and nobody gets hurt.

Jesus and Mary Chain – Always Sad

The pop male/female Mary Chain tracks tend to be my favourites; at least this month. Think I’m always sad, think i’m always going to be sad..
