Mrs Henry from San Diego, California, bookend today's show with two real rock 'n' roll bangers. Once again brought to us by our friends Blind Owl Records, Mrs Henry are a 4-piece rock outfit with some of the finest musicians on the circuit today. Recently released is the excellent Live at The Casbah LP and you can grab yours here. We feature 2 tracks from straight off of the vinyl in the studio today. Firstly it's the fantastic Dylan cover from the Mrs Henry Vol II LP. Secondly, it's The River from the 7" single A side. It's really special music so join us to listen to what you've been missing out on.
Besides the fantastic Mrs Henry, we also end up in deep conversation about the obvious and not-so-obvious merits of today's featured Cover Shot. It seems that Richard's knowledge of '90s popular music is outrageously poor. Apparently he was too busy "listening to proper music" in the '90s. Despite his damning insight, it is a belter of a cover and one that to everyone else is instantly recognisable. Following quickly on its heels Tobin's New Music provokes yet another one of Richard's typography and lexicon rants. What's got his goat this time? Listen on to find out.
Mrs Henry finish off the show in style with The River played directly off of the 7" vinyl in the studio. However, before we get to the end of the show, Proleter and Gogo Penguin bring a fresh sound. Is it electro swing as we know it? Or some other sub-genre. We're still guessing really. It shows Tobin still has a the ability to surprise us with music of integrity and worth. There is some talk of "3 by 3" which apparently is "a thing". It seems to have passed Richard by but Tobin has all the round up on it. Turns out it's a waste of time anyhow. Enjoy this week's shenanigans with your two amiable and jovial hosts. More of the same next week.
