Playlist 01.02.08

Stuart Bailie.jpgHere's the playlist from last Friday's show. I got excellent value from the Juno soundtrack and while my pal Joe Lindsay informs me that the movie isn't so great, the music is ideal. I could have chosen some Belle And Sebastian from the CD, but opted instead for a couple of Kimya Dawsons and a Mott The Hoople for old time's sake. I'm a dude, man.

Because of a technoligical mishap, I played the wrong REM track. Instead of 'Talk About The Passion', I got 'Gardening At Night', but since this followed on from 'Gardenia' by Stephen Malkmus, it seemed like a perfect connection. In this matter, I will defer to Brian Eno who tells us to honour mistakes as a secret intention.

I was slightly undewhelmed by the Hercules & Love Affair track. Media reports had suggesting something astounding from Antony Hegarty's vocal and a disco dimension. But to me, it was Bronski Beat, redux.
