Things Change

by no-man

This is my #LastJam, sorry I'll be missing the party at the end, but I'll be in Belgium thinking of you. Thank-you for all the wonderful musical discoveries and banter. Like most people I'm still dithering on which of the alternatives to use, and am trying them all out, but I hope to see you somewhere on the other side. You can find my links in my bio at the foot of the page. Until then, farewell!

The Sweetest Girl

The Sweetest Girl

by Scritti Politti

#ABCofMe S is for Scritti Politti. Track One Side One of the brilliant NME C81 cassette, which again inspired a change in the direction of my musical tastes. Progressive, Punk and Post Punk were all dead. What else was there? Answer: This. And Scritti Politti above all showed that some Pop music could work on several levels.

Wish You Were Here (With Stéphane Grappelli)

Wish You Were Here (With Stéphane Grappelli)

by Pink Floyd

#ABCofMe P is for Pink Floyd. Ah, the album that had to follow Dark Side of the Moon. The anticipation, the wait. Rushing to the record shop in its day of release with my Christmas money. The black plastic shrink-wrap with the cool mechanical handshake sticker. Ripping that off to discover the album cover -- no wording, more mysterious pictures. Playing the album for the first time, all these moody chords, hang on it's on 45 rpm, start again - oh, even moodier chords. Buying a CD isn't the same.

You Can Discover (BBC Session)

You Can Discover (BBC Session)

by John Martyn

#ABCofMe M is for Martyn. One of those times that change or at least expand your taste in music. I was about 14 when this popped up on the radio among the wash of prog rock. I caught what I could by sticking the microphone plugged into my cassette recorder in front of the loudspeaker on my portable radio. Another long search among the local record stores for this John Martyn bloke. Who knew I should have been looking under Folk?

by Eg & Alice

#ABCofMe E is for Eg. Eg White founded boy band Brother Beyond and writes hit songs for the pop glitterati, but releases his more personal and darker work under his own name. It's been 24 years since he released 24 Years of Hunger with Alice Temple, so here's a nice song about a fractured relationship, depression and nuclear war. I don't think he was in a happy place at the time.

A belated #flyingsolo. Eg White formed the boy band Brother Beyond with his brother (no surprise), but left when they got involved with Stock Aitken and Waterman.
