Forthcoming attractions: tomorrow, I’ll finish the Sandie Shaw piece that’s been brewing for a day after two. After that: The Most Significant Albums Of 2002 – which may include analysis of jaw-droppingly beautiful records, if the rumours are to be believed.
And in the meantime: I don’t know how to begin describing The King’s Singers – an adult choirboy ensemble who’ve been operational since about 1928, and obviously have zero idea of the hallowed ground they’re staggering across when it comes to records grown up with and adored. To which: ‘Life On Mars’. As tweeted by the former bass player of Lush, no less. Or in Twitter speak: this is my new jam. Marvellous stuff.
