Visited Shrewsbury's independent Left for Dead record and book shop yesterday. Picked up the new big thief but wa sintrigued by the music playing - turns out it was by Khun Narin Electric Phin Band - yes, you guessed it, Thai pysch-funk. Purchasd on impulse and it's ace - perfect Green Man music. Bring 'em on over!

Incidentally, we're hoping to move to Shropshire sometime soon - any other Salopians here except Elizabeth?

i dream of living in bishops castle

Or clun, when I'm feeling adventurous

(there's a song in this....)

and belle vue in shrewsbury looks like a good spot

if you make the move, good on yer. Hopefully I'll be there in the not too distant....



Bishops Castle is a lovely spotIf it all comes together we're planning to move to a village on the Shrewsbury-Montgomery road not far from Welshpool on the english side of the border.

Lovin the new Waxahatchee album. 

They were great in the Far Out a couple of years ago so I hope Walter hasn't deleted their number from his doggy-phone. 

Tuung and or Cheek mountain thief 



Still kinda feeling Goldfrapp but only if the disco phase has passed by then. 

Showhawk Duo

Lisa Hannigan 

Cian Nugent (finger picking psych not a million miles away from Ryley Walker)

Birgid Mae Power (droney folk)

Kelly Lee Owens (surprised she wasn't on this year bring an associate of Daniel Avery and having her debut out this year

Brigid mae power is pretty good live, I think I saw her supporting richard Dawson in Belfast. Maybe trembling bells. Supporting someone anyway.
