Lovin’ Arms

I just discovered this. Out Cold are the side project of Cherry Ghost’s Simon Aldred. This belting Hardway Bros remix from 2013 has a thumping kick drum to go with the soulful vocal and sounds like the sort of record you end up dancing to in a car park in the dim light of morning when there’s nowhere else to go but you don’t want to go home. Obviously as a forty five year old I don’t do this kind of thing anymore.

Life Is Sweet

Today is the first day of my summer holidays- school finished yesterday and now seven weeks off beckons, with a fortnight in France coming up. I’m starting a completely new role in September so will have to go in for a few days here and there but still, seven weeks off.

This Chemical Brothers with Tim Burgess song from Exit Planet Dust has been getting repeated plays round here this week- cracking rhythm and noise and Tim’s nasal vocal. Tim went on to work with Ed and Tom several times, best perhaps on The Charlatans’ One To Another single.
