Sunday Morning Coming Down

Round these parts we love a bit of John Prine, so I was saddened to hear this week that he’d had to cancel a load of gigs due to ill-health.

So here’s some prime Prine:

John Prine – Your Flag Decal Won’t Get You Into Heaven Anymore

Get well soon, my old troubadour chum.

More soon.

Late Night Stargazing

Mention the name Electronic to most (indie) pop fan, and doubtless they will go a bit dewy-eyed over a couple of their records.

I’m thinking here of Get The Message, Disappointed, Getting Away With It…the bastard union of New Order’s Barney Sumner and the not racist one out of The Smiths (with apologies to Andy O’Rourke, Mike Joyce and Craig Gannon) Johnny Marr.

But there’s a single of there’s which I absolutely love and which seems to get overlooked, and which I just happened to have picked up one day in the Cardiff branch of Our Price for £1.00 on legendarily obsolete cassingle format:

Electronic – Forbidden City

Just. Wonderful.

More soon.
