South and North

I’ve been away for the past week in North Derbyshire with my wife and daughter, visiting my in-laws, walking forest paths, lighting woodstoves against the chill weather. I finished Paradise Lost and will blog about it over the first week or two of April. Other than that, not much to report, but here’s a list of CDs we played in the car on the way down and up:

Trash Can Sinatras – I’ve Seen Everything
Beck – Odelay
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – Dig Lazarus Dig!!!
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – Abattoir Blues / The Lyre of Orpheus
David Gray – White Ladder
Belle and Sebastian - The Life Pursuit
Various Artists – The Little Mermaid (soundtrack)
Gotan Project – La Revancha del Tango
Morrissey – Ringleader of the Tormentors
Nicola Conte – Jet Sounds

All that interspersed with Radio 3 and Classic FM.

What I want to hear is Nick Cave's unreleased soundtrack for The Little Mermaid.

Good to see 'White Ladder' in your list...David Gray suffered a bit from the 'sold loads so must now be crap and/or uncool' affliction but it's a very good and varied album. I've always had a weak spot for 'This Year's love' and the film it was made for is good too (not a perfect film in some ways but all the better for that somehow). The album DG did next ('A new day at midnight') is good too. And what the hell does uncool mean anyway?
