SONG OF THE DAY The Birthday Party – Deep In The Woods
Loving Halloween as I do, I couldn’t let this day pass without a spooky offering…and, courtesy of the fantastic Bad Seeds, I’ve got something rather deliciously doomful to the mark occasion! Not for the faint hearted, Deep In The Woods … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY Pete Brandt’s Method – What You Are
Not sounding quite like anything I’ve ever heard before, today’s song is something of an intriguing find. This feels odd-yet-inviting, it’s otherworldly and unusual form offering a curious mix of unexpected shapes and sounds. Vocals are dreamy and intoxicating, whilst … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY The Prats – Disco Pope
I’ve been craving some no frills, good old DIY sounds and then stumbled upon today’s song! Voila! You don’t get much more stripped down and raw than this: four young Scottish nippers, aged between 12 to 15, armed with a … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY Klaus Johann Grobe – Between The Buttons
After the first listen to today’s song I’m hoping that, like me, you will find the groove has got into your head. By the second and third listen I anticipate that it will be well and truly under the skin, … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY Talking Heads – Born Under Punches 27/8/80 NYC @ Central Park
Setting a heavy funk tone for the whole album, today’s treat is the opening track to Talking Heads‘ fourth studio album, Remain in Light. Produced by longtime collaborator Brian Eno and released by Sire Records in the summer of 1980, … Continue reading

SONG OF THE DAY Cross Wires – Paradise Club 1953
“Sounding like an angry mix of The Jam and Elvis Costello and The Attractions” (Fred Perry Subculture) Emerging from East London just over two years ago in a furious haze of post-punk mayhem, Cross Wires released only one album before … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY The Modern Lovers – Walk up the Street
Throughout their career The Modern Lovers (consisting of the mighty Jonathan Richman on vocals/guitars, Jerry Harrison on piano/organ/backing vocals, Ernie Brooks on bass and David Robinson on drums) only ever recorded demos and live shows, but the demos were never … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY Big In Japan – Nothing Special
Emerging from Liverpool in the late 1970’s, Big In Japan were an interesting punk collective known as a supergroup, but a supergroup with a difference; that being its members only became ‘super’ after they left and went into other bands! … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY Echo & The Bunnymen – Crocodiles (live!!)
I specifically chose to feature a live version of today’s song because it’s so much more crazy, fierce and wired; I mean the album version is great, but this performance just gives it fire! The rhythm section is insane and … Continue reading
