The 300th Wild Mercury Sound

Just back from a week’s holiday, and I’m working through the backlog of post that was waiting for me. Now playing: Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter III”, from which we’ve particularly enjoyed “Dr Carter”, where the rapper babbles over a generous David Axelrod sample.

I’ll put together a playlist tomorrow, but for now, a quick thankyou to all the regular readers and correspondents who’ve stuck with us for the past 300 posts. Nice to hear, this week, from Downstroke Per Minute, who wisely suggests we go and see The Night Marchers at the 100 Club tomorrow night. And from Tom, who audaciously goes against Uncut protocol by laying into The Hold Steady’s “Stay Positive”, suggesting, “Become a social worker and act your age, Craig”.

Most of the action while I’ve been away has been over at the Live Reviews blog, though, where Andrew Mueller seems to have filed a thoughtful and heartfelt review of Bruce Springsteen at the Emirates and provoked a thoroughly entertaining shitstorm which goes from “Were you actually at the gig?” abuse to a substantially more satisfying debate. Join in, why don’t you?
