Them – Don’t look back

CjK Guest Post – Summer Cover #7

Morrison had first recorded the title song, “Don’t Look Back” on his debut album as the front man for the Northern Irish band Them.

“Don’t Look Back ” is a song written by Blues singer-songwriter John Lee Hooker and released as a single in 1964. Morrison and Hooker also dueted it on a subsequent recording. Perhaps don’t look back is sentiment we should all adopt.





Tape Waves* – Ready Now

This is a first for the blog in that these guys submitted this track to me themselves. In case anyone else out there wants to do the same the email address is

Tape Waves are from Charleston, South Carolina and I really like their Lo-Fi, washed out sound. It reminds me a little of blog favourites Best Coast.

The Stepkids – Suit & Tie (Justin Timberlake Jazz Cover)

CjK Guest Post – Summer Cover #6

Ok you’re invited to a wedding and the ‘Bridzilla” has stipulated a strict dress code. These 3 piece jazz musicians provide a perfect backdrop to a warm summers’ evening wedding, where you might be going  slightly better dressed than usual, and uncomfortable with a tie on. Something of a wedding band themselves this trio are letting it rip.  Anyway Rob would never post Justin Timberlake…

Kid Mountain* – Parashootin’

I thought for a while about which band I wanted to post as the 700th (I can’t believe it’s been that many!) artist on my blogging journey. Then I realised what better a way to mark it than with a random band that stumbled across on YouTube a couple of days previously and pretty much know nothing about!

Kid Mountain are an un and coming band from Boston, MA. This track is taken from Happies, which was released late in 2012.

Marvin Gaye – What’s Going On?

I was just in the mood for some Marvin today. It really doesn’t get much better than this, the richness of the track and what must be one of the greatest vocal performances in history (hyperbole warning! – it’s certainly one of my favourites).
