Bless Playlist 2/8/2004


Tonight’s top new track was ‘Top Shelf’ by Outerspace. It’s from their hugely lovely debut album, ‘Blood & Ashes’ (released July 27th) and features the awesome Sadat X from the superhyperlegendary Brand Nubian. Check out the War Of The Worlds intro to the album… Richard Burton in all his sombre glory.

The best old track was definitely the Peanuts theme, by the Vince Guaraldi Trio. Every time I hear this piece of music, it takes me right back to the 70s, when Snoopy ruled all kids’ merchandising and every summer holiday would be full of Peanuts feature-length cartoons. It’s just the sound of my childhood wrapped up in 3 minutes.
