Bless Playlist 30/8/2004


Maritime. Punch drunk love?

Tonight’s top tune came courtesy of recommendations by both Dan Bennett and Malcy Reveal. It was ‘Some One Has To Die’ by Maritime. This popular beat combo comprises former members of The Promise Ring and The Dismemberment Plan but sounds nothing like either of those bands. Well… a wee bit like TPR in terms of poppiness. Their debut album, Glass Floor, is yet another pure pop gem in what’s turning out to be a great year for it. Go and check it out if you like poppy songs chocker with snappy choruses.

Eagle-eyed readers may think I’ve committed the cardinal DJing sin of playing more than one track by the same band. But Locust is/are an electronic group, quite sonically removed from the shouty bastards known as The Locust.

Top old tune tonight was John Barry’s ‘Hit And Miss.’ I don’t think there was anyone in the Bless old enough to remember the TV show it introduced but then neither do I since it finished when I was only one. But which prog had point scoring on it, eh?
