Playlist 06.06.08

Stuart Bailie | 19:40 UK time, Sunday, 8 June 2008

I was joined on Friday night by Ricky Warwick, sometime member of The Almighty and errant son of Newtownards. He's a rush of tattoos, enthusiasm, LA lore and he strums an acoustic guitar that's been autographed by Jake Burns from Stiff Little Fingers.

Ricky248.jpgWhen he's residing in Los Angeles,the guy hangs out with Billy Duffy from The Cult and some veterans from Guns N' Roses. But what really shook him was a recent gig at the Ivy Bar - his first hometown show in 20 years. There was family in the house and he was nervous.

The new Ry Cooder album, 'I Flathead' is another steely narrative. Meantime, Dubliner Adrian Crowley is good value and he plays the Black Box with Velvetier, Monday, June 9.
