Well I hope you’re ready for this week’s worms, it’s all rather intense. Not sure if this is a good idea on a Monday morning, but if nothing else they will probably wake you up. If you have an earworm you would like to share, please send an .mp3 or link to [email protected], together with a short paragraph about why you’ve chosen it, and I will do the rest. Many thanks to all contributors.
Dream Wife – FUU/Somebody – severin: Formed in early 2016 by three female Brighton art students as “a fake girl band” as part of an art project for an exhibition. Which doesn’t sound promising but – they are anything but fake in my estimation. The singer is Icelandic, the other two British. They seem to have acquired a male drummer and have made a few recordings and done a lot of gigging. Hope you enjoy. Warning – FUU is jolly rude.
Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite – We Can’t End This Way/ Blood Side Out – Ravi Raman: From their collaborative project “Get Up!” The latter especially showcases how well they work together. (Next in line for me is the Superharps album of Musselwhite.)
The Doors – The End – tincanman: There’s no lukewarm about Jim Morrison; he was a god to some and a big old fake to others. I’m not wading into that sea but it’s certainly hard to ignore the power and the glory of this piece.
Jon Gomm – The Weather Machine – AliM: The start of this reminds me of a band called “The Way We Live” (later known as “Tractor”), and early Al Stewart. This is all good. Jon Gomm uses a single acoustic guitar to create drum sounds, bass lines and melodies. He’s playing at The Parish in Huddersfield on Friday 15 September, if anyone wants to join me.
