I had been listening to and enjoying the Wankelmut remix of the Reckoning Song for a while before I found this live version. I’ll never go back.

Is that not one of the most glorious voices you’ve ever heard?


I’m writing this way ahead of time (Sunday, no less) as I’ll be back in my home town this week for Mama Fox’s birthday. She may be the wrong side of 45, but there’s life in her yet, so I’m sure I’ll be running around like a blue-arsed fly for most of next week. All of her gift demands have been met – the realistic ones – but I’m sure she’ll come up with a few more. Wish me luck.

This week’s Tuesday Tune is a catchy little thing. Oddly, it is one of those songs that sounds better live than it does in the actual radio edit. Anyway, I like it; the sexy Southern lilt, the guy with the impressive beard, and the fact that she can bust one hell of a move.

The Staves

Lovely, lovely, lovely.

In other news, Mama Fox is in LDN today, woo! She rarely comes down to see me as the Underground terrifies her (It took several phone calls before she felt sure of the route from Marylebone to Holborn – it’s four stops), and she is inexplicably more broke than I am. We have a fun day ahead of us getting free hair cuts and trying to find somewhere to eat in Central London that will accept Clubcard vouchers. We know how to live.
