Back from a week away, then, to discover that a few records have managed to limp through – at least digitally – in the face of the postal strike. Prominent here I guess are that rarity, something promised by Neil Young that actually turns up, and Them Crooked Vultures, with Josh Homme playing Alpha Male with John Paul Jones and Dave Grohl.
Both pretty interesting, and I’ll endeavour to write more in the next few days, heinous mag deadlines notwithstanding.
