June Tabor- Number Two Top Seam

It's collapsed.

Worst album cover ever? While the London vista is wonderful, the attire and expressions of June Tabor and Martin Simpson make A Cut Above a genuine contender for that dubious title. To be fair, it was 1980. "Number Two Top Seam" is a tragic ballad about a horrific disaster. Tabor may lack the vast range and pure musicality of other Celtic vocalists, but none sing with more emotional resonance. This is timeless brilliance.

My review of Saturday's night's Andre Williams concert is here.

Sandy West, drummer for the Runaways, has died.

I keep coming back to look at those boots. Is it wrong to like them?

Yes, it's very wrong, you sick fetishist!
