'Oh my mouth ain't fed My lips ain't cherry red And my grin might show my bad teeth... ...Roll on Arte, roll on Oh your heart is too good for this town My eyes cast through the glass At your so sorry Marilyn frown At your so sorry Marilyn frown'

Love this song.

It's never easy to be objective about a group when they're your friends but Hipsway were, at their best, a great band, fantastic live and blessed with the charismatic Skin on vocals. This is my favourite single from their first album and it was unexpectedly yet characteristically gallus ;-)

Time to Jam The Jam. From the classic All Mod Cons. Incredible 3 piece band. Reminds me of school and growing up. Never really got into Paul Weller after The Jam.
Jammed: 20th May 2015
Extraordinarily brilliant Scottish band from the 1990s that typically got lost amongst the Britpop dross. Rod Stewart covered this :-) Joe McAlinden is recording again as Linden. Bleached Highlights was released in 2012 and there's new music due this June - Rest And Be Thankful. I should say so.

A good song about a great song...and two brilliant titles in one.

by Belle and Sebastian
Heard this today and remembered that I hadn't bought the new album yet. Sounding good. From the authors of one of my favourite lines in rock... This is just a modern rock song This is just a sorry lament We're four boys in our corduroys We're not terrific but we're competent https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dT9ZFXu8NRc&list=PLySR_h5VqC7dJgvKCbPDBH3VJ6gbv4rCo

Some great tunes on this album but the lyrics really take it somewhere even better.

by Muddy Waters
My Dad had a 78rpm of "Walkin' Blues" sided with "Rollin' Stone". The record labels were stuck on the wrong sides so I used to think one song was the other. I'm still a bit like that.

by Randolph's Leap
It's the festive season and time for looking back as well as forward. Felt like this on nights long since past. And may even feel this way again. But Happy Christmas...to dancers and non dancers alike :-) Thanks to @BarneyRubble for earlier Randolph's Leap jams not least the wistful Weatherman https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LARTvQoaGEc.

by Sam Baker
I'm going to see Sam again this week in Glasgow. He can talk a great story and he can sing to make you laugh and sing to make you cry. Waves is a beautiful song about that most special love between two people. His back story is worth looking into, his songs even more... "He walks down to the ocean. Bends to touch the water. Kneels to pray. Writes her name in the sand. Waves wash it away.

by Simone Felice
I was standing on a windswept beach on the coast of Northumbria and this song was running through my head. There is a good live version here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lhk_dTPUoo

by The Asteroid No. 4
It's the school October holiday week and Autumn is in the air. I came across 'The Asteroid No. 4' on a Twitter link. They do the ol' psychedelic cosmic country folk rock thing quite well and better than others. Nice video too.

...and finally from 'Out Came the Blues' possibly my favourite blues. This song has haunted me for years. Put it on a compilation tape back when I first left home. 'I say the life that you are living will kill you after a while...'

My dad was a jazz and blues collector. Just after he died I was looking through his records and came across the blues compilation 'Out Came the Blues'. I was 13 years old and it was like finding treasure. I'm jamming 3 songs from that record this week. Like jewellery kept in a box; always there, too seldom aired.

Wait! There's more…
