Another generation-spanning mix of tunes today, starting with a track by strangely underrated UK rock band, A, from their 2001 “Hi-fi Serious” album here’s Starbucks.
As unlikely though it may be, the segue from that, into the elfin psychedelia of Marc Bolan and T.Rex wasn’t as odd as you’d assume and revisiting his greatest hits again was a joy as always.
Whether you’re an old fan or a willing explorer of new sounds, treat yourself to some classic songs and free your inner hippy…
…who may also be interested in reliving the heyday of eccentric English sonic experimentation with the great Delia Derbyshire from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.
My old mate Ho gave me a collection of their work a few Christmases back and here is one you’ll all recognise, young and old alike – The (original and best) Dr Who theme.
Which brings us to the second full album from today’s selection, as groundbreaking in its own way as anything the BBC sound boffins came up with.
A cartoon band.
It is of course, Gorillaz.
