Bless Playlist 5/4/2004

Wouldn’t you know it! After a very quiet week last week, I dug out loads of new and weird (and new weird) stuff to play tonight, got to the Bless…

…and it was rammed! Gah!

Naah, I’m not bothered, really. Just meant I had non-stop requests and therefore a lot of tonight’s playlist will look very familiar. That’s also good cos people must have remembered tracks I’ve played before.

Best new track tonight was the truly fluffy ‘A Time For Emily’ by The Elected. Great pop from a great pop album that I’ve reviewed here.

Oh… those funky guys at the top? They’re Huun-Huur-Tu and they’re responsible for the best old track tonight, ‘Dyngyldai.’ What a stunning piece of music! I wonder how much more Tuvan throat-singing I can fit in at the Bless?
