One of my favourite songs of all time is”Soldier On” by Midnight Well from 1977.
Thom Moore, a Californian folk singer who lived in Sligo and later Russia, wrote this
about his Grandfather who disappeared one night. A deep piece of personal history.

Luke Slott brings us the stunning “Keeper Of Secrets” from his unreleased LP of solo piano pieces
“Don’t Go Back To Sleep”. Check out Luke’s MySpace at:

Finally, the video for Sol Seppy”Human” will always be special, you can watch it here.

On Valentines Day, the song that says everything is Lee Hazlewood’s “Your Sweet Love”.

Meanwhile on Fridays Child, Van Morrison drops heavy hints to later vocal transcendence.

Finally, those of you who would like to see a vision of the inside of Daft Punks’

Starting with a contender for most inspired remix of a song that was great already, FourTet on Caribou.

Happy 40th to my old friend Ray O Reilly, the man behind Dublins longest running Northern Soul radio show.
Many happy returns Ray! Keep On Keepin On at

Also on MySpace, might I recommend a visit to the MySpace blog of the Anton Alfred Newcombe
aka the Brian Jonestown Massacre – a daily source of news, rare music videos, opinions and conspiracies.


As we say farewell to St Valentine, let us consider the words of the great DJ Frane

“I’ve been all over the world, a different city every night.
And I had so much fun, sometimes I could almost stop thinking of you, but not for long.
I need you too deeply. I miss the way you breathed my name.
The way you spoke my language. The way you were always so happy to see me.
The way you gave yourself to me and let my hands have their way with you however they wanted.
The way you thought the dirtiest things I did were the sweetest.
I remember all the tricks you like, and I’ve got so many new things to show you.
I want to taste you all night and wake up with the smell of you all over me.
I’m yours. Tell me you miss me, too…”


Love always, more soon.
