My Top Three

Writing about Top 3 from The Land of the Bashmore

H'Okay Mr Ashmore….
this week i have mostly been singing>

1. The Night I Lost My Head - Maximo Park
From the new album which i ahem*illegally*ahem downloaded…is one and a half minutes of pure ectasy in the form of jumpy, lyrical magic

2. C-C (You Set The Fire) - Tom Vek
Still waiting for the album to arrive in t'post but seen him live three times and this song has been swimming round the radio – is awesome. English Beck sounds good to me, in that he is sounding completely refreshing with his simple sounds that come out of his garage

3. Retreat - The Rakes
Oh my god…this band are awesome..of all the groups pretending to be the new Libertines it is fitting that its these guys who have absolutely no interest in emulating anyone who fit the bill….
Live they are stonking and this song is really understated and addictive.

  1. The Rakes…an awesome choice Mr Howson…i tip my hat to you…Retreat is indeed an awesome tune. Good call on Tom Vek/Beck comparison, i see where you're coming from…and Bec's new album Guero is a must…killer stuff

  2. Permit me to make some musical comment on this 1 occasion. I agree that Becks new album is cool, especially track 2 – marvellous piece of music indeed.

  3. I heard Maximo Park at one big weekend singing your blog title…I found it very confusing that I knew the words and I'd never listened to them before, until I remembered this. Just thought I'd tell you :D

  6. Yes indeed I was
    As a Park afficionado of the highest degree I pride myself on being 'official stalker'
    though I like to think the repect is mutual….

    anyways, they were most grand up there…..along with Interpol who were immense
