Well, i really liked The Battle of Land & Sea, was good to hear Echobelly for the first time in ages.

Was real nice to hear some classical stuff Cindy !!

The Jesus Lizard was of course excellent, never heard of Helicopter Helicopter, gonna have to check them out,good stuff. Bitch & Animal was funny and that Richard Thompson track was lovely !!

Nice ending with Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts, good version !!

I was gonna submit Sultans of ping Karaoke Queen, but opted for Mr Rhys.

Av a good one !!!

I haven’t heard the Sex Pistols song until now! *hangs head in shame*

It’s always a good day when I hear Elliott Smith. (that’s odd, isn’t it?)
