A couple of housekeeping things before I go, though. One, in my relentless and awkward campaign of self-promotion, please check out my new Twitter @JohnRMulvey; I’m using it a lot at the moment. Second, it seems an apposite week to remind everyone that these playlists are merely a record of the music played in the Uncut office, and consequently inclusion does not automatically equate with recommendation.

Big cosmic thumbs-up for the new Starving Weirdos record, though, and enduring love for the Blues Control & Laraaji jam, which I’ve written about at length in the forthcoming issue of Uncut.
