Buffet #68 – what more excuse d’ya need to turn into a headcase?

So has anyone seen that Maroon 5 video? The one with him stalking a woman and fantasising about a “sexy” blood bath? Honestly, the blatantly shit and potentially very scary ideas some bands come up with, in addition to already producing music that is wank. Pffft….Anyway, we played some marvellous stuff on our radio show, even if my son did exclaim “What is this CRAP you are listening to???” when he heard one of two new Prince albums.  And how lovely to be a triumvirate again – Happy Birthday Jenny Jet!

2. Wand - Fire on the Mountain
3. Shellac – All the Surveyors
4. Belako - Molly and Pete
5. Fuentes All Stars – Pe Gale a la Nalga

The BCB Sessions

Well hello there! I know, I’m rubbish. Like some dodgy ex that comes crawling back with a paltry offering…and a feeble apology. So here I am with the latest playlists (worth waiting for I’m sure). And I’m not helped this morning because I’m being distracted by some wierd, slowed down, gentle guitar love-in version of Live and Let Die. OK, so you’ve heard the excuses but where are the goods I hear you cry?

Well this is what we played on Wed 20 Oct:
