Because as we know, there are known knowns;
there are things we know we know.
We also know there are known unknowns;
That is to say we know there are some things we do not know.
But there are also unknown unknowns,
The ones we don’t know we don’t know.

MONTHLY SPOTIFY PLAYLIST
ARTIST NAME / SONG TITLE / AMOUNT OF YOU TUBE PLAYS ON CHART PUBLICATION
1 The New Art School – I’m So Beautiful (4 )
12 singles in 12 months. This is no.2 and it’s as good as their first, “Mod Kid.” Sharp UK mod rock styling. Looking forward to the next one.
2 Big Chip – Inna St Paul’s Area (23)
As always impeccable from Bristol, one of the most genetically musical towns on the planet. Old school 70’s/80’s dub stylings with nods to Perry, General St & Clint Eastwood and the Taxi Gang. The whole album is class. If you like your UK/Jamaican dub, stop right here.
3 The Sensation Seekers – Monkey Paws (27)
Funked out fuzzy psych with even a bit that late 80’s James Taylor Quartet vibe thrown in as well. Not a world changer but you’ll want to hear it more than the once.
4 Drahla – Godstar (32)
We know we’re getting old when we see bands we’ve never heard of covering a Psychic TV song. That said we’d be very happy if somebody covered TG’s, “Hot on The Heels of Love”, As long as they made a good job of it
5 Faithful Johannes – Terminal Velocity (80)
Reminds us of those one off acts around the 90’s like Babybird etc. And it’s nice to have a bit of intelligent introspection around in this world of shouting, anger and stupidity.
6 Esnard Boisdur – Mizik Bel (Africaine 808 Remix) (125)
Afro Balearic French Funk Touch !! Don’t know what it is, but it sure as hell has the funk and would light up our dancefloor.
7 Pious Faults – Cope (265)
We love the fact that this noisy bunch are from sunny Brisbane. Yet more proof that on the surface the place looks all hunky dory but underneath the city’s sub southern Californian vibe is a nasty place that brings the best out of bands with more than two brain cells between them.
8 The Lloyd Pack – Green & Yellow (487)
Video features that bloke from the Detectorists and the song is actually a thing of beauty. We hadn’t come across the Lloyd Pack before, we are paying more attention now.
9 Obed Ngobeni & The Kurhula Sisters – Ta Duma (839)
Fab South African tune from the 80’s . Obed Ngobeni and his backing singers the Kurhula Sisters were among the originators of Shangaan Disco, a genre that helped shape South Africa’s ‘bubblegum’ sound of the 80s.
10 Smoke Fairies – Disconnect (855)
Usual class from this lot. Blissarama.
Occult Character – Cult of Ignorance ep
Roi – Dormouse Records
The New Art School – Mod Kid
Graham Domain ep
