Today's Uncut Playlist: So Far

John Mulvey

OK, I know this looks a bit pathetic, but Michael and Allan are off today and I've been too busy to put together a proper blog. So instead, here are the records that we've played in the Uncut office today: -

1 Robert Wyatt - "Comicopera"
2 Michel Legrand - "Soundtrack To Eva"
3 Fuzzy Duck - "Fuzzy Duck"
4 Howlin Rain - "Magnificent Fiend"
5 ESG - "A South Bronx Story 2"
6 Faust - "So Far"
7 Effie Briest - "The Newlywed Song"
8 The Mekons - "Natural"

The new Howlin Rain (that's Ethan from Comets On Fire and friends) arrived this morning, and I suspect we'll have another go at that once this new Mekons thing is over.
Proper service resumed tomorrow, I hope. Bear with me. . .
