LIST 05 - 14/03/09

So.... the first list since PRS and Youtube came to blows, but apart from having to swerve a few official record label video providers to find stuff, life's carried on pretty much as normal in That Music List Towers.

Moral of story: aspire to listen to something other than Leona Lewis, and all shall be well. ;-D

Highlights of this list include a couple of Trembling Blue Stars songs from either end of that band's career (Note to self: five lists in and still not one single Field Mice track? What's wrong with you, Jezza?), and the oldest song I've found to date - a wonderful British calypso track from 1950 by Lord Beginner. Damon Albarn's digging out of such gems recorded by the first generation of West Indians to emigrate to Britain over 50 years ago is something I've enojoyed hugely.

Oh, and there's some shoegaze as well, for those of us who loved it back in the day!
