Strange 

Strange Celeste was the stand out performer on our enforced New Year’s Eve watch of Jools Holland. This is a stunning performance from last year’s Brits of a track from her recently released debut album.

Complaince Matters 10 

If you have yet to download the latest issue of our news sheet “Compliance Matters” here it is. It’s a lockdown special! Happy reading.

Ya No Mas 

In normal times I would be packing now in readiness for our Spring migration to Spain sometime in the next fortnight. Obviously we are not. Filmed entirely in and around our pueblo blanco look what turned up this very morning, sad and cheering in equal measures.

Biscuits 

I’m slow to Kacey Musgraves via a recommendation from the younger son. My taste is more to the Americana wing but if you want modern, mainstream Country she is fantastic. This too is a ridiculously vibrant video ideal for current drab, grey times.

In the meantime if you have any urgent problems you can contact Simon on the usual number – 07970 494805. Emails will only […]

My Wandering Days Are Over 

New live album, “What to Look For in Summer” from long time favourites Bell & Sebastian is out today – this is from it. Run to the record shop as fast as you feet will carry you.

Late November 

I have a Sandy Denny day once a year, usually in autumn to reflect the mood of most of her writing. No one since has sung like her. This is one of the few live recordings and seems apt.

Sunflower 

I heard this for the first time in ages yesterday, probably my favourite Weller song, and what a performance. Missing live music “so bad”.

Georgia 

I have 3 songs in my library called Georgia take your pick:     Then there are the other ones you are thinking about:
