One of the world's greatest guitarists, doing Amazing and Subtle Stuff, with some rather disturbing lyrics.

Warren Zevon's Excitable Boy.  Superb album, not a duff song there.  The title track cracks me up every time.

At the prompting of BBC's Sound of 2019, I am listening to, and really enjoying, Rosalia. She is a Flamenco performer from Catalonia who is fusing hip hop with traditional Flamenco, thus making her unpopular in her homeland.

It's intensely satisfying to be listening to the Stranglers' Rattus Norvegicus when at work.  How else would I have a huge grin on my face while installing Billysoft's SharePoint 2016?  Your system needs to restart to continue.  Press Finish to restart your system.  Who cares when there's an 18-year-old jumping around in your head!

Jenny Lewis's "Red Bull and Hennessey" the first song released from her new album. A grower I think.
A stella bunch of musisions on this:

Don Was - Bass
Ringo Starr - Drums
Ryan Adams - Guitar and piano

I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

"Sorry, is this the right place? I can't read the sign as I don't have my reading glasses with me."

"The right place? Oh, I mean the right place to register a complaint."

"It is....good. Right, my complaint. I want to know how on Earth it can be 27 years since Boss Drum was released. Are you trying to make me feel old or something. Come on, it was hardly last week."

"What do you mean... the computer says September 1992? That's impossible!"

"Who are you calling Granddad. Why I'll take my belt to you, you young whippersnapper."



Sigh.

Just been listening to Boss Drum by The Shamen in the car. It still sounds as fresh and exciting as it did back then....sadly, I am no longer able to party beyond 10pm  :facepalm:  Youth, it is wasted on the young!


One final thing.... when I was young, our seniors used to say that music from their time was better than it is today. They were right. Music now is crap compared to the 50's to late 90's!

Thomas Larcher "Alle Tage" on Radio 3 in concert.

I'm not usually a fan of modern classical music but this is good !
