The 19th Uncut Playlist Of 2012

The 19th Uncut Playlist Of 2012
John Mulvey

A week somewhat overshadowed by the Dexys show that I wrote about yesterday. Apologies for banging on about this some more, but the comments on my blog are definitely worth reading, and I’ve embedded below some unusually high-quality clips of “This Is What She’s Like”, “Lost” and “Come On Eileen”…

I sincerely hope the awful crowd singing is not me, but the camera angle is a bit worrying.

Moving on, some nice new arrivals in this week’s playlist, especially quite a bit of the long-awaited Lawrence album, a couple of reissues from the Arthur Russell-assisted Peter Zummo and a vintage Californian psych band I’ve never come across before, Crystal Syphon.

The 35th Uncut Playlist Of 2014


Weird serendipities aplenty this week: versions of "O, Death" on two albums I downloaded one after another, by Mike & Cara Gangloff and Bessie Jones; dovetailing into Sea Island overlap between Jones and Loscil. It makes for a nice blurring between time and genre with, say, the Gangloffs...
