Suzanne Vega. Started with her eponymous debut and now onto 'Solitude Standing'.
Gold radio on my Alexa .
Benny Goodman trio.
Transvision Vamp - Baby I don't Care
Manfred Man if you gotta go go now on Gold Radio.
I saw them back in the day in Brixton. I lost one of my pumps I was wearing and had to walk/get the tube with no footwear!
I really used to fancy Wendy James. I then saw her about 3 years ago. Not quite the same.

I’m going to see New Model Army on Saturday at The Roundhouse in Camden. They are not a band I know very well at all, so I’m letting Alexa play me random songs of theirs.
I must admit I’m actually quite apprehensive about going.
Because of the music or just covid crowds?
Seeing the band was just an excuse to meet up with friends who happened to be into them anyway, So just a social trip with a band thrown in. This has been rearranged from the start of the pandemic.
I saw New Model Army back in the late 80s. The support band was one of my favourites, The Cropdusters, who I had seen many times, often as support for the likes of The Pogues and the Men They Couldn't Hang which made perfect sense. It was a surreal experience but the crusties loved them. (I suggest 'If the sober go to heaven' as an introduction to the 'dusters.)
Their previous bass player, Nelson, is the guitarist in one of my bands
I listening to Jade Bird after seeing her at Red Rooster festival in the summer. She was brilliant live, full of energy, one of the best acts of the weekend, so I bought her latest CD, different kinds of light. On the first play I wasn't sure, on the second I loved it. She reminds me of Pauline Murray from Penetrarion.
Sofi Tukker - Awoo
Two hours of Tony Iommi on Planet Rock - just learnt that he nearly ended up in Jethro Tull!
A Chopin piano conc.
The Who Hits 50 Live on Sky Arts. Very strange. Pete Townsend at 68 looked so like one of my best mates does now at 67. Said best mate loves music but canny play to save himself so very strange to apparently see him wielding a Strat at the Royal Albert Hall.
Talking Heads - Psycho Killer
The Archies - Sugar Sugar
Not actually listening to but not going to start a thread. Just read Mike Naismith (typex heir) has died.
The Monkees - only manufactured boy band I was ever into. I was only young.
