A sad day in music with the passing of reggae stalwart, Toots Hibbert. Only recently had Uncut magazine featured an extensive spread on Toots and The Maytals.
In this month’s latest copy of Uncut, there is a short interview with Catherine about the collaborative work with Bernard Butler resulting in the album as well as a very positive review of the album itself.
The album is due for release on September 18th and is available to pre-order HERE
Something for Kerrsday. Sexiest Dick Whittington there (n)ever was! And I double checked with her – Virginia is adamant she didn’t notice his bum in the mirror when she took the photo. Lol
I love this story that George Underwood tells of him and David Bowie going to see Little Richard.
It’s part of Uncut magazine’s big obit to Little Richard. I had read the story some time back – but it bears repeating. If there is really such a thing as heaven and those of us deemed worthy get to walk through those pearly gates, I can imagine David seeing Richard arrive and saying “you took your time! Now…let’s get this party happening!”
A couple of reviews of the SFY box set have been printed in both Mojo and Uncut magazines this week. The Mojo one is particularly scathing but the “fortune cookie wisdom” in regards to Jim’s lyrics in the Uncut review isn’t exactly complimentary, either! Although overall, it is a kinder review.
The reissue lands in two weeks time.
The latest edition of Uncut magazine has a one page review of four Eno albums that have had the half-speed mastering treatment. I have already got myself into Roxy Music in a big way this year…and I have been aware of Eno’s music for a very, very long time. I have listened to a full album here and there, but never have really immersed myself in the experience.
I think the rating “Ambient 1: Music For Airports” achieved is nothing I have ever seen before! Full marks! 10 out of 10! Wow.
I need to delve…properly…
The latest review for WBW from Uncut. Cannot wait to hear In Dreams. NO ONE’S TALKING ABOUT IT! This is the first review I’ve seen that mentions it.
