Song of the day

"A Day's Pay For A Day's Work", by Darkstar.

Somewhere, Brian Wilson's lawyer is reaching for the telephone ...

It might be a tad early to be hanging out the "album of the year" sign, but, by crikey, if there is a record that chimes more with this listener than Darkstar's "News From Nowhere", well, it's going to be one cracker of a year. First this, then "m b v", then a new Miles Davis live box set wherein you can hear music change before your very ears, and shortly a Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds album that is, in a word, fascinating (although whether that is in a positive or a negative sense it's too soon to say). In the immortal words of Mike Williamson, "It's all happening".
