Okay, so by now you know I’m a huge The The fan. I’ve featured them twice before I think and I still can’t get enough of this band.

Larkin Poe

Larkin Poe though, they’re new! I first heard them on Spotify I think, one of those algorithm jobs, and they nailed it! One song in, I’d bought tickets to see them – since been cancelled, obvs. I put them on again this week and still love them. I need to get to know them a bit better.

The Charlatans

I had Some Friendly back in my army days. According to lead singer Tim Burgess’s Twitter feed, it was the 30th anniversary of the album one day this week, so I listened to it on my dog walk. It does sound very much of its time and has a kind of ‘anyone can do this’ punk vibe to it. I really enjoyed listening to it again.

Roy Harper

I had a reminder come up that I saw Roy Harper on this day in 1994 at the Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh. That prompted me to fire on Whatever Happened to Jugula on my dog walk and I loved it! Jimmy Page’s guitar on Hangman is particularly good, so that’s what I’m going to leave you with for this week’s listen.
