I Gave Up On Everything That We’d Felt – 15/04/12

There’s nothing that a music publication/record store/fan/geek (delete as applicable) likes making more than a list. Favourite albums, favourite songs, favourite year..etc..etc, and the NME this week unveiled their latest list, the top 100 best tracks of the seventies. You can check out the list in full here : https://www.nme.com/list/100-best-songs-of-the-1970s/264865
We had a quick look through the list and played several tracks from it.
There was also some rather heartwarming footage as former members of Hole (Courtney Love, Eric Erlandson, Melissa Auf Der Maur and Patty Schemel), were reunited at the after party for the new documentary Hit So Hard (based on the life story of drummer Patty Schemel), they played 2 tracks, Miss World and Over The Edge (a Wipers cover). You can check out this footage here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QdpX2XpJVMU
Also this week I had the great pleasure of catching Southend band Caleb live at a free gig at The Railway Hotel, a brilliant night was had and Caleb especially were superb, cementing their position as one of my favourite Essex bands.
I would heartily recommend checking out their facebook page and their youtube page : https://www.facebook.com/CALEBBAND
The rest of this weeks playlist was made up of bands playing this years Coachella festival, which I sat bleary eyed up until the small hours of the morning watching a live stream of on Youtube. Some new tracks as well from Mount Eerie (who releases 2 albums this year!), Spiritualized, Sun Kil Moon, Screaming Females, Sleepy Sun And Graham Coxon.
I’m off to prepare for Record Store Day and I’ll see you all next week!
