Got my mp3 player on shuffle today and there's no knowing what's coming next! Last few tracks have included Ride, Orbital, Dilated Peoples, Lords of the Underground, Bob Marley and Paul Weller :blink:

I love the way shuffle can produce such great mixes - I went from Ash - Girl from Mars this morning straight into Fanfare for the Common Man, onwards to the Jam - Going Underground, some Moby thing then the second movement of Beethoven's 2nd symphony. Somehow, it all worked.

Loplop, I love "The Milk-Eyed Mender". Didn't realise she had another album out, though...

I freely admit to listening to Under the Iron Sea by Keane over and over again.

I really love this album.


I don't know about this one. I loved the first album, but this one feels a bit disjointed. Keane have got a good future, but I hope album 3 is better.

And on another note:

I rather foolishly lent my ears to Rudebox by Robbie Williams this morning but gave up in despair at only the fourth tune when he tried to cover Manu Chao's King of Bongo. Robbie's album is nothing more than another vanity project.

I am now listening to Fabric Live 30 - Stanton Warriors. I love everything they do (in particular the way they chose their name, which is from a specific type of manhole cover). B)

Shame you didn't make it to track 13. Robbie's cover of Stephen Tintin Duffy's "Kiss Me" is quite a foot tapper. The hidden track at the end of the album is masterfully rude.

Manu Chao's "King of Bongo " should never have been touched as far as I'm concerned. King of the Bongo-Bong as it goes is a quirky classic and it's a shame that this tune will now become inextricably linked with Mr Williams... oh well....

Giles Peterson - Back in Brazil (very good but seems wasted on an autumnal day)

Elmo,

Is Herbaliser - Fabric 26 any good? I think I know "Take London" too well and need a new Herbaliser fix

It's not their music, it's a compilation of influences, favourite tracks etc. It's mostly British hiphop with a couple of soul and rare groove tracks.

Some of the hip hop is pretty hard so listen before you buy, but it certainly wakes me up in the morning! :yawn:
