The Kinks – Father Christmas

As i've said many times, I love Christmas, so every year I try to put up a Christmas Song. So here goes for this year..and its a track I have to say has only been in my Christmas playlist for a couple of years. But I think its ace.   So im sure you have all heard of the Kinks, so not much to be said there. And this is a typical Kinks track, catchy,...

This Is The Kit – Hotter Colder

Tonights track has been all over BBC 6 music for weeks now and relentlessly on my car stereo…and for good reason. It is absolutely, off the scale stunning. In fact, the first time i heard it, it came on my internet radio in the kitchen and i thought to myself, hello, what is this. At exactly the same moment my wife asked what it was. Its the sort of track that creates that impact.  ...

Brasstronaut – Hawk

So I'm getting back in to the swing of things and have a bit more time to check some music out and post too. I'm way behind in terms of putting up stuff I'm listening to on the way to work. The list of tracks on my Spotify playlist is getting longer and longer, far longer than my commute. Schools in Malta are starting to shut down for the summer so traffic is getting better....

Voluntary Butler Scheme – Trading Things In.

I thought I would end the week with a bit of fun and maybe try to give you a song that will be stuck in your head for the weekend and beyond.   I'm sure I have mentioned before that I am a sucker for the 2 minute or so pop/indie song and tonight's track just about makes it in at 2.33. But it certainly passes the catchy as hell criteria. I was put on...

Danny & The Champions Of The World – (Never Stop Building) That Old Space Rocket

Something a little different tonight but honestly, i think this song is impossible to dislike. Since a good friend of mine (John) came to stay in Malta over the summer and played me this track, i have been hammering it on and off on the way to work. So if anyone sees me screaming like a maniac in my car on the roads of Malta, its probably because i am playing this track.   I honestly...

The Only Ones – Another Girl Another Planet

Ok, so today's track didn't come on while driving to work, but it did come on via 6 music as I was in a sleepy haze, having breakfast with my son. I was immediately a happy man.   So this is a classic track, no surprises, but when a classic comes on sometimes you just have to go with it. Plus, I have been listening to this song for near on 27 years and I...

The Monkees – Listen To The Band

A quick one tonight. I have loaded Up a load more stuff on the old, usb stick and was flicking through, when stuck in traffic, when this beauty came on.   I've always had a bit of a soft spot for the Monkees and many will know that Mike Nesmith released some excellent country rock stuff around the time of Gram Parsons, Gene Clark etc. He wrote great tracks like Different Drum. This late Monkees track showed where he was headed and...

Prefab Sprout – Cars and Girls

It's a very lazy choice from me today, as it's been a long few days with a sickly son and a ton of studying to do, so I've been delving into a lot of old music that reminded me of school days (must be the exercise books) and stumbled back upon Cars and Girls by Prefab Sprout. I actually flagged it up late last week to FourbearsJr on facebook, but it seems to have stuck around for a few...

Dinosaur Jr – Just Like Heaven

So tonight is a straight up classic by one of my favourite bands from my youth. Dinosaur Jr have stood the test of time well and they have been getting quite a bit of coverage recently for their appearances with people like Bob Mould etc. And being a fan, part of me wanted to post something they wrote or maybe a bit obscure, but to be honest I hammered this on the way to work...
