Day three of my daily, month-long attempt to post something every day for a month and I haven’t even started repeating myself yet and it’s already day three of my monthly attempt to post something every day.
It’s going well so far, I think.
Today is music day and I have once again unearthed a box of rattling plastic cases and fragile spools of magnetic ribbon from under the stairs for your listening pleasure.
Yes, it’s time for another of my occasional Melodic Randomiser Unspooled posts; wherein I ferret around in a plywood box filled with dozens of cassettes, relics from the hazy days of my youth, to bring you a trio of tunes to tickle your terpsichorean tendencies.
The trilogy of tapes making up today’s random selection of rectangular nostalgia are as fine an example of eclectic juxtaposition as you could possibly hope to fill your aural receptors with, so sit back and let it wash over you.
First up, a man once described as looking like “a sexy dolphin” by Radio 1’s Jo Wiley, Evan Dando and his band, with a track from Come on feel The Lemonheads; here’s Big gay heart…
…followed by the breakthrough track from Sheffield’s hardest working band of the ’90s, Pulp, with the brilliantly observed and ferociously cynical Common People…
…finishing off with a track from one of the most enduring and accomplished guitar players of all time, Carlos Santana and his eponymous band, with a true classic, Samba Pa Ti.
And if you can’t find something there to please your audio sensory apparatus, then I’ll just have to try extra hard next time, so stay tuned.
Up next, the Cosmic Photo prompt, then another post tomorrow, see you soon…
