I Like the future, I'm in it..
Greetings from Sunny Manchester: New Zealand's The Ruby Suns released 2nd Long player 'Sea Lion' a month or so ago on the Sub Pop label. It's a very infectious, summery record that sounds a lot like Os Mutantes sharing an Ice Lolly with Arthur Lee. You can purchase the album here.

Apparently Scarlet Johannson is preparing her debut album, a record full of Tom Wait's covers. Whilst we wait with baited breath here is the real thing: From the 1980 LP of the same name here is 'Heartattack & Vine' which contains the immortal line 'Don't you know there ain't no Devil, there's just God when he's drunk'.

Last up today is Pete Rock & CL Smooth's 'They Reminisce over You'. Perfect for stomping round town on a Spring morning too. Or any other morning. The Days of wayback, so many bear witness the fitness. When Hip was Hop..
