The show: It’s good to be back, good to be back…

This week The Herb Whisperer recommends Japanese Cartoon – Lupe Fiasco’s new project apparently inspired by his admiration for Joy Division. Rather good it is too. Even better – the Japanese Cartoon album “In The Jaws Of The Lords Of Death” is a free download.

Fraserhead gave into guilty pleasures and thoroughly recommends Hurts. Herb has been too chicken to play this fantastic synth duo but Fraserhead has no shame. Hurts conjure up all your favourite/hated overblown epic synth duos and boy bands from years gone by. Think all the best (yes really) bits of Westlife, Robbie Williams, Savage Garden, Black, Talk Talk etc etc etc. Truly wonderful. Here’s the classy video for “Better Than Love”…

And here’s the playlist in full…

Gold – always believe in your soul…

After feeling sleep deprived from all the earthquake aftershocks, and at a loose end from not being able to do the show, this one put me back in a good mood. Let’s hope that this cunt goes on to do cover versions of Phil Collins, Paul Young, and Billy Joel.

I do believe that Spandau Ballet’s “Gold” is The Herb Whisperer’s karaoke/SingStar song of choice. However, none of us will ever be able to sing it again without gratuitously swearing throughout it.

THX ALISON !!!

By the way, here’s the original – just as dodgy. But a belter of a song!
