I kept hearing 6Music DJs back-announcing John Cooper Clarke in the last week or two, and thinking that I didn't remember hearing a JCC record. I worked it out eventually!

Good song though!

Same here!

I thought he’d left the music behind with The Invisible Girls... turns out he had!

This cracker is from one of my top five best rock albums of the 80s . Just totally different from owt before or since! I always thought of it as Twin Peaks on vinyl

I just picked up the “City of Love” by Deacon Blue. I’m enjoying it - it’s a good DB album - and Lewis Gordon’s bass is superb, especially on Hit Me Where It Hurts.

For anyone who didn't see this, here is Bruce Springsteen from last night's Biden-Harris Inaugeration.

Wonderful.

It's not really Bass related but I am listening to the enclosed - Michal Fix plays Bach's Toccata on a 12 string acoustic(below). I may be dreaming but it's something to aspire to -  if I could busk it, I suspect rich people who have actually heard of Bach would throw money at me.

Watch the whole video - it gets more impressive. The challenge for Bass players is what would Bach sound like on a modern bass - would it be butchered or add a whole new dimension to the classics.

I feel like I need something slightly more challenging to listen to ATM - there is too much good music around these days. I remember buying albums that I found I didn't like as uch as I'd hoped but albums were so expensive and I had so few of them I made myself listen to the damn things until I liked them.

Amen to that.

We had a local independent record store right by my school, the guy who ran it was awsome. You could put an album on lay away and go listen to it on your dinner break with headphones until you paid the last 50p and carried it home triumphantly

I remember the only album I ever returned - Willie Nelson.

I thought I was buying a Bill Nelson/Red Noise album!

Youtube favourite which I keep coming back to. 

Not well known.... but brilliant punk / power pop from 1980 Canadian band The Modernettes "Barbra".

All in 2 minutes.....and the bass player is pretty cool too!
