Isn’t Astral Weeks AMAZING? The whole album is insanely beautiful. I remember reading a Lester Bangs book and he did a huge spiel about the album, so I remember picking it up and listening to the whole thing and being blown away. Madame George is also one of my favs.
Roots Manuva at The Bedford, Moorhouse Avenue, last night.
Pssst… The Herb Whisperer recommends buying the February 2012 issue of Mojo. The covermount CD is New Order’s 1983 masterpiece “Power, Corruption & Lies” covered, Blue Monday revisited, and bonus tracks. Could have been a recipe for a disaster but you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Have a sneak preview of the tracks here.
ABOUT THE JOINT
Hosts THE HERB WHISPERER and FRASERHEAD go all over the shop with an eclectic, left-field, and off-kilter selection of cosmic disco, electro, indie, hip-hop, house, dub, and anything with a motorik vibe, plus the occasional guilty pleasure. If the radio sounds broken chances are it’s the THE JOINT.
