Vangoffey - Take Your Jacket Off & Get Into It

If Gaz Coombes has taken the 'maturing songwriter' path in his solo career as evidenced by the Mercury nomination, Danny Goffey by contrast seems to be hell bent on keeping the spirit of early Supergrass alive if his new album is anything to go by. At times it sounds spookily like his old band, notably on Trials of a Modern Day Man. Then you see the liner notes mention Gaz played a little on this album too, so perhaps you shouldn't be surprised.

I like it. It's a really fun pop album.

It has struck me how the single sounds just like Supergrass.

Miki wrote:My latest purchase (though for now only available in digital form) is 1989 by Ryan Adams. And before you ask, yes it is a full cover of Talyor Swift's album. I like Ryan's version and the spirit in which it was made a lot.
I'm not familiar with the Taylor Swift album of the same name, but this is beautiful. Something quite poignant about it. Gets a thumbs up from me. Love it.

Coldplay - A Rush of Blood to the Head LP

Saw at the Virgin store in Dubai and thought that I might not buy it otherwise. But damn it's pricey

It isn't really a subject I had thought to look into. But I think much of it will be fascinating. Music often interweaves with social history.

Nick Drake is timeless - you would think his records were made today :)
