Last Thursday I had the pleasure of spinning some of my treasured 45s in support of White Town and three other great acts, at How Does It Feel‘s live gig night at Brixton’s Jamm venue. A few people came up to me throughout the evening to ask what I was playing, so I thought I’d share a list of my choices with you. I particularly recommend the yodelsome Alice Babs tune if you haven’t heard her before.
Stereolab & Sonic Boom – Splitting The Atom Part Two (Duophonic)
Holger Czukay – Ode To Perfume (EMI)
Jonathan Richman & the Modern Lovers – Egyptian Reggae (Berserkley)
Duane Eddy – Gidget Goes Hawaiian (London)
Ennio Morricone – My Name Is Nobody (General Music France)
Los Diablos – Un Rayo De Sol (EMI/Odeon)
Helmut Zacharias – Teatime In Tokyo (Polydor)
Les Souls Men – Allons La Caze (Soredisc)
Digno Garcia Y Sus Carius – Brigitte Bardot (Palette)
France Gall – Baby Pop (Philips)
Alice Babs – After You’ve Gone (Fontana)
Can – I Want More (Virgin)
Yamasuki – AIEAOA (UK Records)
Denton and Cook – Tomorrow’s World (BBC Records & Tapes)
I had so much fun choosing how to follow each record. If you put on gigs or clubnights, why not book me to play more weird pop nonsense?
