Crazy coincidence Shiney, i just bought tickets to see Mayer Hawthorne when he swings down here in early Jan next year! The best white boy soul singer going around atm, retro but contemporary like my beloved Ms Winehouse. How long will it take for Mark Ronson to get his grubby hands on Hawthorne?

That song knocked me outta my chair when i saw her perform it on Jools Holland on late night TV, i can't actually think of any song or music for that matter that blew me away so instantly. Usually my faves are slow creepers till they they eventually mass into a full blown obsession.

She's like the lovechild of Roy Orbison and Ronnie Spector, throw in some Scott Walker, Edith Piaf and Siouxsie! Rick Rubin produced her record Neptune City (2007).


Heard of these guys but never heard their music. Great elegaic pastoral Americana, not as over the top as i thought they'd be.


PAGANS - What's This Shit Called Love (1977)

The Pagans were one of those seminal Cleveland "Punk" bands in the mid 70's that were lurking in the shadows of Pere Ubu and the Dead Boys but never really released a full length.

I love this, cool voice. Allusions to the blues but not the same old blues rock crap, but neither is it the destroy post-punk blues of the Gun Club. Actually really reminds me of Australian band Harem Scarem from the 80's!

They recently released a great double cd retrospective of the Wreckery
called Past Imperfect that i'm sure you'll be able to find at amazon or
something, 24 quality tracks of smacked out sleazy gothic blooze.


LTE are like a cross between 16 HP's gospel and My Bloody Valentine's dreamy bleed of instruments, it kinda approaches Spiritualized but is uniquely American. Me likey........

Darling Downs a spooky minimalist country duo made up of Kim Salmon (Scientists, Beasts, Surrealists) and Ron Peno (Died Pretty).


Holy shit batman, this smokes. Checking out the myspace now and the songs are in that spirit of the knives out table upturners of Rose Tattoo. The Love Reaction haunting desert highways on their hogs causing mayhem in any shitkicker watering hole they come across "Near Dark" style. Such wild eyed menacing biker sleaze hasn't been heard since the daze of Frank Starr and Alex Mitchell. This is the stuff rock n' roll dreams are made of.......
