Sherwood

Tuesday brings a pair of Adrian Sherwood mixes for your listening pleasure. The first is his dub mix of Monkey Mafia’s after hours classic from 1998, their cover of the Creedence Clearwater Revival song As Long As I Can See The Light. Echo, delay, melodica, the full Sherwood dubbed out business. A lovely way to start the day.

As Long As I Can See The Light (Adrian Sherwood Dub Lighting)

My own personal Woodentops revival continues- the band haven’t been far away from my stereo for most of 2018. Sherwood remixed several of Rolo and co’s songs. This is my favourite, vocals up front, crunchy guitars dropped in and out and frenetic pace maintained.

Looks Like We’re In For Nasty Weather

Creedence Clearwater Revival’s rootsy 60s rock ‘n’ roll is almost the exact opposite of yesterday’s Tortoise post-rock. Killer guitar riff, Southern boogie and portentous lyrics- Vietnam, student protests, civil rights, assassinations, rioting. This song has possibly suffered from being overused in films and on TV.
