valencia rocked

the gig in valencia was great - especially "muchachito bombo infierno" who were brilliant... and then of course me... apart from a few teething problems with the sound (including inadvertently becoming "rob unplugged" temporarily) the crowd really got into the set. when it was time to shut up shop, a few of the more feisty ones tried to jump the fence to put on another track themselves. thanks to el caiman for treating me like a rock star (dressing room, bottle of whisky, etc). it looks like there'll be some more gigs to follow so i'd better start thinking up some eccentric demands for next time...

new podcast!!!

yes! its been a little while but we've had an overdose of bank holidays here (4 since the last podcast - life is tough). so it's meant time away from my beloved vinyl, delays in records arriving and - most importantly - john gómez, my special guest has been away. but i think you will agree that the wait was worth it. he has pulled out a bag of absurdly good tunes that are making me seriously question whether i can match that kind of quality. anyway, without further ado, here is the tracklist. comments please!!

los fabulosos festivales - el mensaje (soundway)
manny corvado - chicken and booze (jazzman)
