Girl Ray


Mrs S & I returned from our London odyssey a couple of days ago (she exhibiting her ceramics on the King's Road, me odd-jobbing for my elderly Aunt in East Ham) to a world without Leonard Cohen, Robert Vaughan, Leon Russell & Mose Allison and where Donald Trump will soon be the most powerful man on the planet. Donald Trump. I'm still reeling. Since we got home, I've been doing my best to catch-up with as many blogs as possible. It'll take a while, it's been quite a week. Swiss Adam has the right idea - fight the darkness with 'up' tunes - melodies to make you whistle and hum. In that spirit, I humbly submit 'Trouble', the forthcoming Moshi Moshi 7" single by North London band Girl Ray. It may be a song about 'apathy and hating yourself', but my goodness, what a great pop song it is. 'Trouble' is released in a limited edition of 300 on November 25th. Order it here, but be quick about it.

Great track...remember the Doves released a limited single 'here comes the fear' I rushed with daughter to get 2 copies. We got them, can't be many left, there were many there on sale the next two times went into same record shop. I felt as if I had been duped. What the hell it was a great record.

Old Pa has got it right... I keep getting in early and pre-ordering stuff online so I don't miss out. then I go into Piccadilly records weeks after the release and there are copies on the racks.
