Anyhow, before the rundown, a brief self-aggrandising note to point out that the new issue of Uncut is on sale more or less now, with, I’m thrilled to say, Jack White on the cover. And in an act of spectacular folly/indulgence, I’ve been given a new, regular slot in the magazine for a hard copy version of Wild Mercury Sound. Exciting times!
