Doves – Snowden

This is a favourite from Manchester heroes Doves. It is taken from Some Cities, which I listened to endlessly while I was at university. I love the sound – expansive and soaring.

I had the good fortune to see these guys live a few times and have never been disappointed. If you get the chance I would highly recommend it. The put on a great show both visually and sonically. 



The Housmartins* – Happy Hour (GPF)

Tonight’s post is something akin to live blogging. I am just home from a convivial evening with a good friend celebrating the fact that he had avoided deportation. This was on the stereo in one of the bars we stumbled across. I had forgotten how fun it is – 3 minutes of pop perfection with a spirited video to match (look closely here to spot a very young Fatboy Slim). 

It’s happy hour again…
