NPR Music Spotlight On Country Archive
Just a word of warning ahead of tomorrow’s edition of The Joint – for most of the week I’ve been listening to
NPR’s Spotlight On Country podcast series.
It’s too early to say how exactly this will affect my choice of songs in Saturday’s playlist, possibly in the form of a
threesome or a Merle Haggard Sesh. Waylon Jennings
Or maybe I’ll just play
‘ George Jones “He Stopped Loving Her Today” whilst quietly crying in the studio. Am I alone in thinking that one of the line-ups could do a fantastic cover version of this song, maybe as a bonus track on the forthcoming This Mortal Coil 4AD boxset?
Orange Juice - Coals To Newcastle
The NME reported yesterday that Domino Recordings are set to release an Orange Juice 7 disc boxset on the 8th of November, possibly due to overwhelming public demand after The Joint played the title track of Edwyn Collins’ new CD “Losing Sleep” last Saturday. Possibly.
Entitled “Coals To Newcastle”, the release will comprise their entire discography plus video footage.
I’m particularly looking forward to the latter because it will include the official promo for “What Presence?!” – which I reckon to be the best Orange Juice single and a piece of video I’ve never seen.
Derek Jarman directed to boot.
Sure, you can stream it online at
Muzu.tv or vh1la.com or some other off -the-beaten-track video site but NOT if you live in New Zealand. We have to put up with some dodgy VHS footage of an Old Grey Whistle Test appearance or one of those motionless YouTube tributes…
I’ve watched this a few times and I’m of the thinking that it’s one of the great TV / music moments-
MIA on David Letterman:
I’ve watched this a few times and I’m of the thinking that
Buju Banton (author of Boom Bye Bye) should get, ahem, a special birthday present in jail:
I’ve watched this twice and I’m of the sinking feeling that
David Harvey is right when he says “Debt incumbent homeowners don’t go on strike”:
Shut it! You slag.
