Monday Long Song


When Beyond the Wizard's Sleeve re-animated (that's remixed to you and me) Midlake's already sublime 'Roscoe', they, by their own admission, '...turned up the melancholy level to 11...' and created a very beautiful thing in the process. Now seems a particularly fitting moment to play the tune, given that tomorrow I turn 59 years of age, which, let's face it, is enough to make anyone feel a little melancholy.

As you read these words, I am, as a great man once said, '...on the road, heading for another joint...', in the midst of a flurry of gig and other extracurricular music related activities that are taking me hither and indeed thither. I'll be sure to report back when the dust has settled.

All the best for tomorrow Swede.

I have a birthday later on this month that is causing more than a little melancholy around here.

Excellent. *Goes off in search of more stuff by Midlake*.

There was an element of Michael Aspel and his red book when you walked in yesterday! Thank you again for coming out all this way to support our Vinyl Session.

And MHROTD for tomorrow.
