It's been an age since the last HDIF podcast, but I plan to do loads more this year to make up for lost time. We kick off with a round-up of some of the highlights of recent nights at The Montague Arms in Peckham, The Crypt in Camberwell, and The Shacklewell Arms in Dalston. There's indie pop classics from Morrissey, My Bloody Valentine, The Pastels and Buzzcocks, 60s girl group brilliance from The What Four and Joey Heatherton, 21st century gems courtesy of Meilyr Jones, Alvvays and Stanley Brinks and The Wave Pictures, hip-shaking dance floor joy from Lynn August and Thurston Harris, and three moments of pure wonderment - Carole King singing a jangle pop demo of "Pleasant Valley Sunday", The Velvet Underground jamming a garage rock version of "Satellite Of Love", and Van Morrison bringing horns and handclaps for "Glad Tidings".
