one more time

in an horrific burst of morning sunshine through the mist optimism i thought perhaps we might have another little muck about with this old thing... you remember the drill? nice picture a line or two of unrelated piffle and a record... daft really it is but there you go...

this has been hum of the week and i know you know it right the way through and all the way back again but bloody hell i love the impressions...

the impressions - grow closer together

just in time

you know we love a waltz around here a jazz waltz as a rule a modal waltz a wishing these limbs had the grace and slink to turn two step shuffle floor sliding joy waltz but a beat waltz'll do nicely too... most especially a beat waltz with frankly audacious (shoo do do do doo doo) rhyming...

lazy gravy eighties oh well done chaps potatoes cheese graters eighties you are superstar rhymers indeed

direct hits - a place in the eighties

picture post

lovely mark over at cooking up a quiet storm asked what song does this picture make you think of? on one of my more bleeding obvious mornings i started humming sunshower... a whole lot of other folk thought of a whole lot of other songs... what would yours be?

and special well dones to whoever picked this...

alessi brothers - seabird


for some baffling reason mixcloud have stopped showing tracklists although the song info does pop up as you play but there's a lot of smashing songs here well worth a listen...
