Hello everyone and happy new year to you all! Our first mix of 2011 is a rather mellow, contemplative affair. But as sonorous as you've come to expect..
Along with the usual helping of musical faves we have some tunes which resonate with us going into the year ahead: The Superimposers are a wonderful group who released a special album in 2010 and we look forward to hearing more. We had the honour of helping Fabienne Delsol launch her excellent new CD at the under-threat 100 Club in London some months ago - the title track is featured here. The late great Alex Chilton is featured here too with the legendary Big Star. One of my most treasured moments of the newly departed year was performing at the Anglican Cathedral in Liverpool with indie Godfather Edwyn Collins. An amazing event, made more so by an encore duet performed with the great Pete Wylie where time seemed to stand still. The song we played was Pale Blue Eyes. Stunning. Our best wishes to you for 2011.
