Wild Mercury Sound

A playlist, plus forthcoming attractions

John Mulvey

Not much time to post today, so here's an office playlist for your delectation. Thanks to everyone who posted their playlists last week - we can definitely do that again here if you're in the mood.

Farah will be filing news stories from the O2 Arena as the night progresses, so stick with us through the evening.

Adverts over, sorry. Here's the playlist (Just two I'm underwhelmed by in this 11):

1 Blur - Park Life (Food)

2 Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - Ask Forgiveness (Domino)

3 Dory Previn - The Art Of Dory Previn (Zonophone)

4 Growing - Lateral (The Social Registry)

5 Supergrass - Diamond Hoo Ha Man (Parlophone)

6 Malcolm Middleton - Sleight Of Heart (Full Time Hobby)

7 Kelley Stoltz - Circular Sounds (Sub Pop)

8 Dawn Landes - Bodyguard (Fargo)

9 The Cave Singers - Invitation Songs (Matador)

10 Girl Talk - Night Ripper (Illegal Art)

11 Bob Mould - District Line (Beggars Banquet)
