    Stealing Lanokia's good idea, really...what's everyone listening to during lockdown?
    I'm on a deep dive back into the vast oeuvre of the late, great Fela Kuti. Just can't get enough Fela...dig this:

    I thought about putting something like this up. We've had so far tonight:

    All About Eve.
    Fuzzy Haskins.
    The Clash.

    Yesterday was The Damned and Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats.

    But who knows what tomorrow will bring? (Joking - there is a high probability of Nick Cave).

    I’ve been revisiting my old Elvis Costello albums. Back in the old times I went to see him and he was fab. (Two weeks ago)!

    Nick Cave good. Grinderman better.

    I was listening to Fela Kuti last week after the sad sad news of the passing of Manu Dibangu from Covid 19. Dibangu and Kuti did lots of collaborations, and also Seun Kuti.
    This is my favourite Dibangu and the dance moves on this vid are happy, especially right in the middle-clearing off the toddler to carry on dancing is great.

    Weirdly cheerful stuff that makes me want to dance:
    Martynas Levickis by playing Telephone on the accordion
    Miriam Makeba singing Pata Pata
    Ozone, Dragostea din Tei (Ma Ya Hi)
    Scatman John, I’m a Scatman
    The Albion Morris Men playing the Liberty Bell March
    Vera Lynn singing the oddly pertinent, It’s a Lovely Day Tomorrow
    Dead South’s In hell I’ll be in good company
    And so on!

    I'm listening to a lot of Ralph McTell at the moment. Plus some Simon & Garfunkel.

    My music choice hasn’t changed - smooth jazz and Steely Dan all the way!

    iTunes randomly shuffling through my music collection, so pretty much anything.
