Tindersticks – Can we start again

This track is a blast from the past for me. It is one I discovered on an album I came across while raiding my father’s record collection when I was much younger and just beginning to discover what music meant to me. It was before I had any real idea about what I liked and was curious about listening to things I had never heard of (this has remained true many years later).

What struck me about this album was what I thought was a pretty good name (Simple Pleasure) and a provocative cover (see below). I was glad it did catch my eye as it was and still is a favourite.



S.C.U.M. – Whitechapel

Computer issues this evening mean this will be a short one. This is another good band with a rubbish name. I hope you can look past that and enjoy the track as I have been over the past few days. It is an urgent and energetic mid-week pick me up.

I can hear is a bit of Suede about them (A very good thing).
