Nuggets 197 – morning (flight)


Flying used to be more fun. No worrying about whether your shampoo was in a 100 ml bottle and whether there was a pocket knife lost in the bottom of your bag and I am sure there was more room.

Anywayz, here is a morning mix for my travelling pleasure.

The Y Niwl are a fab surf guitar band from Wales, I have included live sessions from Laneways’ best, Yuck, Girls and Cult and some old blues and soul. 2 of the bluesy tracks are by Jamaican artists – Bread and the Mustangs.

Two covers, Emily Reo with a dreamy Neil Young cover, Damien Jurado & Richard Swift from their covers release Other People’s Songs Vol. 1 – with a Chubby Checker song.

First up Merlin Monroe with an excellent guitar piece – sex.

Nuggets 193 – Lofi and thrashy + Laneways

Laneways was hot and crowded, a bad place to find a beer in a hurry. Girls, Yuck  and the Horrors were worth the wait. A friend said that that the line-up was a bit indie wimpy and I agree. More thrash next time please. How about Royal Headache and Total Control from Australia, the Screaming Females,  Milk Music and The Men  from the USA, the UK’s Black Tambourines and Christchurch’s gift from the rock gods, the T54’s? If you need some alt wimpy, give us TV Girl.

PS, run do not walk to your PC and download this Black Tambourines EP. It’s free. I almost took out some other tracks to make way for more of their excellent thrash. It’s that good.

The picture is of course from UFO. I can’t work out which SHADOW operative this was, but she’s not the one that later married Michael Caine.

Meanwhile, back at Laneways, here are The Horrors…
