ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On January 24th, 2020

Because Friday night is Music Night

Another week done at the coalface of capitalism. Blimey, doesn’t January drag? Imagine the nutters who give up booze for the month. They must be suicidal. In a week we’ll be in that pre-1973 world we were warned about. Cannot wait to be honest. Proper coinage, proper comedy and still lots of proper music.

So, I’m a fan of B-Sides and album tracks. A band’s big hits and popular numbers are often the ones which do it least for me. So I’m right at home with the band Cotton Mather. They have no hits. I don’t know anyone who’s ever heard of them. But their 1997 album Kontiki is fabulous, a stone cold classic in my book and one I still play.

Have fun whatever you’re up to this weekend. As always, feel free to share your top sounds down below –

    Yes Pete. Every day in January is a Monday, always has been.

  4. Cant believe Pete’s not doing Veganuary.

  5. Level 42’s thing wasn’t really my thing, but they did have some very good tunes.

    MR – I’m too much of an animal lover to be a vegan.

  6. Schubert’s Standschen is always worth a listen. It was composed as a song but there have been many orchestral versions since his death. Here is one with nice pictures of nature:

  7. Here is a good performance of Ashokan Farewell. This was the signature music for the late Ken Burns’ great tv series on the US Civil War. As with all music it’s best appreciated when seen as well as heard:
