This remix of Baxter Dury’s Miami is going to be released on Record Shop Day. RSD has become redundant, some limited edition releases to be fought over once the eBay scalpers have pillaged the racks plus a load of unasked for reissues. Yes, there are one or two things I’d like. No, I won’t be queuing up to get into a record shop.

Miami is from Baxter’s album that came out last year, that I meant to listen to and didn’t get around to. This expansive, electronic remix with gorgeous sweeping strings, a disco beat and Baxter’s seedy, in character vocal scattered about, is a joy, and comes to us from the combined talents of Parrot and Jarvis Cocker.


How Did It Feel When The Clocks Went Back?

Is just one of the lines in this Baxter Dury song, Pleasure, off his new album. It’s a belting little tune, with a nagging 80s electro pop melody and some motorik backing and Baxter’s hard won wisdom.

The answer is ‘shit’ of course. It’s always shit when the clocks go back.
