Sandgrains through my hands

Just a quick post – I’ve been meaning for ages to post up some new favourites – but every day the list of favourites gets longer and the chances of me actually putting together a coherent post gets slimmer. To reduce the slide somewhat I decided to use juno’s chart feature to put together a list of my favourite things from the last month or so..

Who knows, eventually I may manage a longer post with youtube links and maybe one day even a new mix. …

This is the sort of song that used to play on jukeboxes on small town pubs of my youth down south and in th Bay of Plenty.
I hated that hippie shit…

I don’t know why or how I came across this track and am sure I watched/listened to it last year and thought it lame…
Perhaps it was the whiskey sours… the sore tummy, the pounding headache but this song saved my freaking life on Saturday – perhaps a life not worth saving.
Whatever, I can’t stop watching listening to it now

Greg Wilson came to town so Mick, the Ninja and I donned long pants and headed off into town for a night of excess…  It was fab.
He didn’t play voodoo ray much to my sadness
I drunked too muchbut stayed up way past my bedtime
It was wonderful to see someone play great music cause they love it

Move D is a man who should need little introduction to the BMP. Great singles released on Workshop, Uzuri, Running Back, the classic ‘Songs from The Beehive’ with Benjamin Brunn on Smallville, and (bound to impress some of the more aged BMPers), several releases on mid 90s warp records. So it goes without saying that I’m looking forward to his gig here in Tokyo in a few weeks. I thought I might focus on the support lineup all of who are also doing good things.
DJ Nobu seems to organise and …

“In the UK and Europe in the late-60s a mysterious multi-talented musician known as Jesse Harper was hovering on the verge of stardom with his unique ‘jug-a-jug’ wailing guitar style when he gave it all away for saffron robes.
Harper’s date with rock ‘n roll fame was to be colourful but short-lived and recalled only in urban legends in latter years, once he disappeared from public life. On the verge of being signed to Atlantic Records in the US and having turned down a record deal with EMI to pursue life …

For the lovers out there here is this adaption of an old (1928) Blind Willie Johnson song which whilst well cool Davy Graham makes it his own – a sad reflective and yet uplifting song of love lost.
There’s dozens if versions of this on youtub but they are nothing compared to this one. Perversely first entered my musical world via a Dubstep mix by the one like Appleblim… just wait for the drop.
Happy valentines (for the other day) mofos!
