It’s amazing how hearing one tune can remind you of so many other tunes to play around it. Such was the way with the new cut from Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings lifted from the forthcoming “100 Days, 100 Nights” album. It led to the mighty Dawson Smith who led to The Stylistics who took us back to soul sistas Lyn Christopher and Vicki Anderson. I’m really digging the new album from Menomena and what I’ve heard so far of The Magik Markers (their “Boss” album is coming soon on Thurston Moore’s Ecstatic Peace label). And I marked the fact that 70,000 people were in a field in Co Meath by playing Rolling Stones tunes albeit not played or sung by the Rolling Stones (and on a similar tip, there are some very interesting songs mooted for Cat Power’s forthcoming new covers album(s)).

Next week’s show will be an Electric Picnic preview extravaganza so tune in for that. NB: no tickets or wellies required.
