Here are all of djh62uk's jams.
by The Damned
The first punk single and probably the best. Never fails to pick me up (and throw me around the room). First heard by my 15 year old self on the 1977 Sire New Wave compilation (pay no more than £2.99 or something on the sticker). A fitting way to go out; maybe see you on Nusiki or Gods Jukebox. PEACE. djh

As we approach the final days here I am getting broody.

Sods won't allow Ride On which I seriously suggest you check out. These are the evening day of TIMJ and I'm going back to my teenage years. AC/DC I think the only group I saw 3 times, last Bon first Brian UK tours etc. etc.

by John Coltrane
A story I've bored folk with before but around 1979 I bought my first jazz albums. Four in the first batch, from Piccadilly Records in Manchester. Amongst them Africa Brass volume two by John Coltrane. The album had only come out a couple of years earlier (and probably was a dubious Italian release) the master takes appeared on Impulse in 1961. Anyway this is the track that fried my teenage brain. Enjoy.

by Art Blakey And The Jazz Messengers
A stonking live 1979 version of the old warhorse. Thanks to Expiry 2011 on VG+ for the heads up and a certain dj called Giles P. who played it at Dingwalls the other month.

Doing a semi-sabbatical from social media time wasting lead me to the back passages of my computer and the wonderful album this is from. Left-filed jazz-fusion from Mid-'70's Brazil. Enjoy!

Found it on the shelves last night, a great way to end the working week.

by Emmanuelle Parrenin
Found again amongst the XTRO large digital collection. Just a beautiful folky song with mallets and stuff. N.B. last couple of minutes are silent song is about 5 mins long, but the best five minutes you'll hear today. Pip Pip Devastatin' Dave

by Roxy Music
Sorry about the lyrics thing. Tried to find a post by another Roxy fan but it wasn't happening. Anyway this just encapsulates what was so good about Roxy Music. I hate to say it but the best of '70's music shits over today's sad crappers.

by Adam Bohman/Catherine Pluygers/Adrian Northover
Stumbled across this while looking for info on upcoming improv. gigs. Adam & Adrian I've seen play live together many times, Catherine was new to me. If you are wondering about the title, when Adam isn't playing springs and light bulbs with a file he can be found reciting cut ups from adverts,instruction manuals, take-away menus etc.

Il Maestro moves on from '70's protest angst and concept albums to deliver a slice of slick '80's pop. I have no idea about the lyrics mind...

by Skeleton Crew
Skeleton Crew had become the trio of Fred Frith, Tom Cora and Zeena Parkins when this album was made. The music here is richer, more rhythmical and the songs more developed than on their first album, and this ultimately led to the band's break-up. Frith explained that "we actually started to sound like a normal rock and roll band so it seemed kind of pointless to go on at that point."

An old favourite from the days of vinyl and cassettes.
