So today at Uncut we’ve been frantically finishing the issue, struggling in vain to make an online streaming of the new Om album work and, oh yeah, doing a lot of interviews with various radio and TV stations about this Led Zeppelin reunion.
Exciting news, of course, though I hope it doesn’t entirely detract from the excellent new Robert Plant album that I wrote about here last week. If you want to try and get tickets for the show on November 26, the details are all here. Good luck!
You can probably see the excuse coming by now, but all of this means that yet again I haven’t had time to do a proper blog today, and the pile of proofs on my desk mean that I still don’t. As is customary, then, I’ll resort to the exigency of compiling today’s playlist. Quite a lot here, thanks to our Reviews Editor making a pretty concerted effort to get to grips with the teetering piles on his desk. . .
