The Durutti Column provide a shimmering instrumental from 1980 as Father’s Day nears.
Gang Of Four never got enough credit as one of England’s finest post-punk bands. Even when they went through a pop phase, they pulled it off with panache. Thankfully, this is prime era GoF.
I’m not a fan at all of when labels throw mere snippets of an album simply to force you to buy vinyl (which is reasonably priced, but shipping is more than the disc itself, make it a horribly overpriced artifact). Still, I’m a fan of pretty much everything Habibi Funk has released. I’m sure this …
Thanks ever so much to my prog brother in Kazakhstan, Slava, for introducing me to this wonderful Swiss project, The Great Harry Hillman. Cuneiform Records have released another masterpiece!

Gregg Allman, singer of the legendary Allman Brothers Band, passed away due to complications from liver cancer. Too much rock and roll can, indeed, kill you, but he leaves an exceptional body of work behind, especially this smoking track from a Fillmore East performance in 1970. Thanks to Orlando Greenhill, who shared this originally.
The Tindersticks have a new album for your perusal. Unfortunately, there is no way to imbed it yet. Check the link out here.
Padot na Vizantija (The Fall of the Byzantium in English) were one of the leading lights in the Yugoslavian post-punk scene. Singer Goran Trajkoski went on to participate in two legendary projects: Anastasia and Mizar (for a short tenure).
Vincent Ahehehinnou was a member of the Beninese band Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou. This album appeared after he left his former project in 1978. Very pleasant for those into Afrobeat.
What a disheartening thought… Thanks to my Galician brother, Andres, for sending me this link from NPR.
