Made up a couple more of my 'DGAF' series CD's these are numbers 11 & 12. Started making these about 12 years ago, original intention to compile my favourites and not give a monkeys about what everybody else thought and that's why some choices are considered a bit rubbish by most folk. But I don't care :D

And here's Track One Disc 12 released when I was about 16 or 17 and for me memories of local dance hall, named at various times Mr Smiths, The Savoy and The Witchdoctor.

I DO like this band, best thing to come along for some time, definite late sixties/early seventies vibe and... energy

Generally speaking I’d say I don’t like jazz or possibly more accurately I don’t like brass instruments. All those moody sax and trumpet noodlings always conjure up images of 1950’s smoky basement blue-lit nightclubs where evil doings and skulduggery are afoot.

There are exceptions of course, Bill Evans & Herbie Mann, John McCaughlins Mahivishnu Orchestra’s Inner Mounting Flame and Birds Of Fire; Weather Report’s Heavy Weather and John Coltranes’ A Love Supreme, for instance.

There is so much jazz out there however that it’s inevitable I’ll probably come across some I’m not familiar with but once heard actually quite like. From 1974, the year in which I spent with my toes dipped in sand in Cornwall, is this offering from Chick Corea, which I’ve just discovered I quite like.

Nice tune :thumb: Although I can't hear jazz flute nowadays without thinking of Ron Burgundy :lol:

I recently discovered a band called Pomplamoose and I love their Tainted Love cover:

I haven't seen any of the Anchorman films, looks to be in the same vein as Airplane! and Smoking Gun.

Was listening to that album of jolliness and feelgood The Eels' Electro Shock Blues today when I noticed the lyrics to this song 'Dead Of Night' The words, particularly the middle bit, struck something of a resonance with me.

The first one was pretty good (in a very silly way), but the second wasn't great.

:(

It's funny how music can sometimes do that, out of nowhere you listen to something that exactly describes what you've been through or how you feel. Hope you're doing ok.
