potrokin, by misreading one of your posts you reminded me of my favourite Buddy Guy tune : )

Fyi, potrokin unfortunately deleted his account, something to do with porn and terfs.

Kate Bush. I liked The Dreaming, still need to get around to listening to her other stuff.

Tropic of Cancer sounds pretty similar, but a lot of their songs deal with the same love crap.

Might also like Blouse

Thanks for those suggestions. Didn't see them till now. Had a brief listen and both seems up my alley, though I think I prefer Blouse out of the two of them (they seem to be fans of New Order going by their sound).

I like having Kraftwerk looping in the background when programming. It's neat how they did some songs in five different languages.

Just came across Thievery Corporation recently. I like this particular song, but some other their other song titles sound Alex-Jones-ish ("false flag" e.g.) which is somewhat of a put-off.

Bo Diddley back in 1965 - still making the electricity fizz.

Lou Usher sings ‘Blue Wing’.

He had a blue wing tattooed on his shoulder
Well, it might have been a bluebird, I don't know
but he'd get stone drunk and talk about Alaska
The salmon boats and 45 below
Well, he got that blue wing up in Walla Walla
and his cellmate there was a Little Willie John
and Willie, he was once a great blues singer
so Wing & Willie wrote him up a song
They sang, it's dark in here, can't see the light
but I look at this blue wing when I close my eyes
and I fly away, beyond these walls
up above the clouds, where the rain don't fall
on a poor man's dreams…

The confederate flags are a bit concerning. Never heard of B.D., but he's a bit too tame for me, like listening to the beach boys or something (though I'm sure both were more musically interesting/novel back in the day).

‘The confederate flags are a bit concerning’

Oops, didn’t spot that – the moral is - if you wear a flag on your head, you’ll get a bonce like a billiard ball.

B.D. had a hard core following and was ‘covered’ by other musicians including Muddy Waters, Buddy Holly, Them, The Yardbirds and the Rolling Stones.

I never liked his voice but the last four minutes of this are truly epic.

Sound slightly more refined than other "communist/anarchist" punk bands. Lead singer apparently died recently.

I am listening to Right Ho Jeeves read by the amazing Jonathan Cecil.
Also Count Arthur Strong's Radio Show series 2. Not to be confused with the god awful TV show. I particularly recommend this to Auld Bod who I’m sure would love it.
