Two-Headed Boy, Neutral Milk Hotel

Manolete, Weather Report

Plastic Factory, Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band

The Old Man’s Back Again, Scott Walker

Misumo Bo Tamo She, King Bruce & Black Beats

O’er The Hills, Martin Carthy

Jackie And Edna, Kevin Coyne

Born Secular, Jenny Lewis & The Watson Twins

In Love, The Raincoats

  1. I did, of course, mean to say that Scott 4 was a gem…
    I did not mean to infer that Scott 4 was akin to something posh folk might spread on their afternoon scones (or is it scones?)

  2. I do like a bit of Scott. His lyrics are quite something.

    If you like lyrics please check out the Silver Jews “sometimes a pony gets depressed”

    “Happiness won’t leave me alone
    says a bird in his nest
    Get a load of this fuckin’ view
    its the best in the west “
