The Vulture - Labi Siffre


Soulfully funky deep cut from the hugely underrated Labi Siffre. Not heard this track before picking up the 3 CD Labi Siffre Gold album for a whole 99p at the weekend. Ace innit?

Train of Love in Motion - Heaven 17


To...er...'celebrate'...today's rail strike let's revisit Heaven 17's rarely heard Teddy Bear, Duke & Psycho album and this single from it which sadly failed to chart back in 1988.

We Gets Up - Prince


Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuunky deep cut from Prince's unfairly maligned 3 disc Emancipation album (picked up from a chazza for a mere 50p last week) to gets you up over 'hump day'. Play it loud muthahumpers.

Up The Mountain - Regina Spector


Possibly inspired by 'there was an old woman who swallowed a fly' Regina Spector's back with a simmeringly seductive slice of superlative orchestral pop (try saying that with false teeth). And just because it's a Monday let's drop in the tune that made me a fan waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in 2006-ish.

Dumb Head - The Dumbettes


You Tube suggested this track this morning and it turns out to be a Misty's Big Adventure side project that had somehow escaped my ears. I'm assuming the late, great Grandmaster Gareth had a hand in its production...
