We start today with a fantastic instrumental from Blur, the wonderfully discordant Eine Kleine Lift Musik, which was released on the War Child charity album Help (Go! Discs 1995), but which you can also find on the 2012 remastered version of their album The Great Escape.
Next, some wonderful 1970s pop-psyche with Julian Brooks' only release, the single Justine (Pye 7" 1970).
Magazine were one of a slew of excellent Manchester bands that arose after punk, indeed frontman Howard Devoto had been one of the innovators with Buzzcocks formed in 1976. From their third album, the Martin Hannett-produced classic The Correct Use of Soap (Virgin 1980) this is the awesome You Never Knew Me.
Amy Rigby is an American singer/songwriter who played in many New York rock bands in the 80s and 90s. This is her attack on Trump with The President Can't Read (Southern Comfort CDr/digital 2019), buy here.
We finish with a complete mystery to me, London band Sad People, who only released one single, and this is it. Turn Around is the great B-side, A-side was Lonely Man (Chapter One 7" 1970). Enjoy. Until next week ...
