Djivan Gasparayan - I Will Not Be Sad In This World

Album Of The Day

24/3/17 – Djivan Gasparyan – I Will Not Be Sad In This World – 1989

I wouldn’t normally just repost something that I wrote two years ago. But then circumstances have dictated that I do just that. Tomorrow morning at 8.44 I take the train from Penzance to London. On to Warsaw and a connecting flight to Yerevan in Armenia where I will play with Anekdoten on Sunday night – […]

Chuck Berry 1958

Song Of The Day

Life & Death

21/3/17 – Chuck Berry – October 18th 1926 – March 18th 2017 / Chuck Berry – Little Queenie – 1959 / The Rolling Stones – Little Queenie – 1969

With little effort, tapping into those talents that allow me to predict the future, I have been saying this was coming since I realized quite recently that Chuck Berry would be 91 in 2017 – note that Little Richard will be 85 in December.

Their sound captured both simultaneous intensity and atmosphere in a unique musical chemistry. Singer Mark Burgess announced this week that John had […]

Video Of The Day

Song Of The Day

27/2/17 – Lana Del Rey – Love – 2017

The polarizing Lana Del Rey returns with a new track, the first since the Honeymoon long player released in 2015. Sounding like Mazzy Star meets Chris Isaak meets Jesus And Mary Chain meets some glamorous past compounded by the  simultaneously modern and retro lyrics plus the doe-eyes framed with false eyelashes – and probably an […]
