The last song of the show before us was a Whitney classic. That threw us a little bit. How do you respond to that. Thanks Whitney. Thwhitney.
Here is what we played:-
- Mr Hudson and The Library - Picture of You
- Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue - Backatown
- KRS-One - Higher Level
- The Civil Wars - Falling
- The Darkness - I believe in a thing called love
- A Winged Victory for the Sullen - Steep Hills of Vicodin Tears
- M83 - Midnight City
The system didn’t work for a bit at the start of the show. At one point I filled in for Mr Scruff’s ‘Trouser Jazz’ as a bed. With my voice. Dave joined in, 15 seconds later we found ourselves lost in the music. It was fun.
We introduced a little video of behind-the-scenes/in-the-studio BackToMine. Check it out. Euan said ‘I always imagined you guys sitting next to each other, not facing each other’, changing viewpoints as we speak.
We were an international show again… Annie listened from California. She is a goat farmer. Dave said Goats give you everything you need.
What was hip? This week, The Grammys were hip. An evening of awards celebrating the music industry. Pretty sweet. And some friends of the show won awards, it was nice. Bon Iver, the Civil Wars, Skrillex (… no, wait…) There was a bit of cafuffle when MANY people didn’t know who Bon Iver was… it appeared people didn’t know who Sir Paul Macca was when he stood with Adele … Adele won a load.
I called Dave Dad and Babe during the show. Wow.
What was not good melon? I had a little rant about travelling. Driving to Manchester, Dudley, Essex and Manchester again makes Tom a dull boy.
The song Dave played by A Winged Victory for the Sullen was really special. Here is their website.
Thanks and goodbye.
