I’m so glad you asked.
Check out my friend and fellow Memphibian Robby Grant (second from right) rocking out on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts with motherfucking Pat Sansone.
I’ve never watched The Last Waltz.
I agree to report to my musical probation officer as required.
The Brakes – from Brighton – joined by Julia and Becki from The Pipettes, covering the Jesus and Mary Chain.
I can’t find any good video. You’ll just have to sit there and listen.
Please go watch this at once. Or re-watch this fantastic documentary, you non-Wipers remembering bastards.
YOUR TOWN IS NEXT
Never heard of these Portland screamers from the late 70s – early 80s. Apparently they were very influential on the whole PNW grunge movement, but we won’t hold that against them.
Now get and there and really suck balls.
Something got me thinking about these guys this morning. Their latest is 2019’s Eton Alive, which I’m about to investigate on Spotify.

From The Guardian comes this bit of good news for Radiohead fans …
Radiohead have launched a new online archive of their work, called Radiohead Public Library … releasing previously unavailable rarities to streaming services.
Hosted at radiohead.com, the site features archival material grouped around each of the band’s nine studio albums, including music videos, live TV performances, artwork and the group’s quarterly w.a.s.t.e. newsletter series. It also links to the frequently bizarre, nightmarish and labyrinthine previous iterations of their website.
But wait, there’s more! You can order previously out-of-print T-shirt designs from over the years and even listen to Drill, the band’s 1992 EP.
Get to it, you bastard!
