  1. Yep, I thought it was time, what with all this optimism in the air! I've also been updating the playlist with acts from the current lineup page and updated songs for some, I'm about 2/3 of the way through. If you're not already following, it's here.
  2. Tricky: Head On/Pill I'm In Your Mind/I'm Not In Your Mind Am I In Heaven? Trapdoor Robot Stop Evil Death Roll Nuclear Fusion Murder of the Universe Pt 3 (Like what you've done there @priest17) Deserted Dunes Welcome Weary Feet Fishing for Fishies Mars for the Rich
  3. Undoubtedly superior to the original:
  4. Great song + great voice makes for an easy entry here Agree with you there, absolutely spine-chilling
  5. Yeah, it’s popular because it provides people with a simple good-v-bad explanation in difficult times. It makes the ignorant feel well informed and superior. The story is of course not original, but a rehash of a conspiracy theory that went big 90 years ago: https://www.justsecurity.org/72339/qanon-is-a-nazi-cult-rebranded/ The recent ‘Reply All’ podcast on how it grew and who’s behind it, mentioned on here recently, is well worth a listen. Amazing how Q keeps getting things wrong but they all keep believing anyway. I find it fascinating, the damage it’s doing to our shared real
  6. Playlist of Uncut's 75 best albums of the year here. Song selections based on Uncut's reviews, and to avoid overlap with the Mojo list. I found someone else had started doing this, but they'd only got to 30 and some of their track selections were off. Some great stuff on each of these lists that was new to me.
  7. Nubya Garcia is great. And one of the only artists who actually played Glastonbury in 2020 (the Pyramid no less):
  8. This one is probably my favourite
  9. Great to see a fest - and an indoor one at that - confident of going ahead some 6 weeks before Glasto.
  10. For a deeper cut Parquet Courts have a nice take on We R In Control from Trans. Annoyingly only available on Amazon Music: https://music.amazon.co.uk/albums/B07HYMG2CZ?marketplaceId=A1F83G8C2ARO7P&musicTerritory=GB
  11. Playlist of a song apiece from Mojo's top 75 here They've picked their standout track for nos. 2-50, I've picked the others based on reviews
  12. Watched this on your recommendation, cracking stuff, cheers. And as @Punksnotdead says, brilliant tunes throughout.
  13. The Select Committee thing seems a clear sign Parliament are very keen to get festivals up and running again ASAP. The fact they’re generally outdoors also helps, really seems like transmission is minimal. I’m optimistic.
  14. Uncut have it at no.1 too. It's an unwritten rule that if Bob releases an album that isn't terrible, it'll get top spot in those 2 mags (among others). Yeah I'm with @Quark on this - if they're new arrangements, fine. You can view them as a sort of re-recording; this one doesn't even have crowd noise.
  15. Mojo's Best Albums of 2020: 1. Dylan 2. Fiona Apple 3. Fontaines 4. Bill Callahan 5. Fleet Foxes 6. Cornershop 7. Jarv Is... 8. Run The Jewels 9. Phoebe Bridgers 10. Flaming Lips 11. Weller 12. IDLES 13. Moses Sumney 14. Tony Allen & Hugh Masekela 15. Frazey Ford 16. Cave (Idiot Prayer) 17. Marling 18. Toots 19. Sault (Black Is) 20. Nubya Garcia 21. Mark Lanegan 22. Leonard Cohen 23.
