Music Diary #29 – 31st January 2012 – Salford Music Scene Radio Show

Well as the month draws to a chilly end it’s worth reflecting on the first month of the calender year…….well over 50 new bands , whether demos, singles or albums have come my way in 31 days and that’s not counting the absolute dross I have had to reject on the grounds of public well-being taste and decency. That’s a dizzying amount of new music to absorb in the context of having lots of older stuff to recall and bring forward for consideration. On the most part things have been good and the standard, variety and uniqueness of the material is all very high indeed.

However having said that today’s listening has been somewhat marred by a pile of things which I will not even bother listing – awful in extremis…..somewhat rescued by….

My recommendation of the day which is:

  • Mark Lanegan Band – Blues Funeral : chap out of the “Screaming Trees” for those who know them, also “QOTSA” and “The Twilight Singers” amongst other things….his latest release is out next week and I have to say it’s rather fine indeed – dense and intense bluesy material which sort of sums up and concentrates into one excellent package the material he has produced over his previous six albums.
