A few weeks ago, during my drugged-out silence, former ffr buddy Joe, a.k.a Geordie improv titan Posset, sent me a cheering email with this mp3 attached. It fair brightened my day and has sat on my digiwalkman ever since. The track has been featured on a Posset cdr (‘The Sultan EP‘) but, ever the gent, Joe kindly agreed to me posting it here too.
In some alternative universe this 3 and a half minutes of charmingly lo-fi chang-a-lang would have been a worldwide Summer hit single. In that same universe Sanity Muffin, Matching Head and a reconstituted Sunny Days Out vie to be the leading record label. Cassette batters mp3 into format obscurity as it becomes law to end all songs with that ‘ssquiiippp’, pressing-stop-on-the-tape noise. And Justin Bieber is an aging depressive vainly archiving his own back catalogue on a largely unread blog…
*Ahem*, anyway: download the mp3, dig it, then head over to Posset’s myspace page (which is worth a look just for the great ‘influences’ list) then on to Joe’s blog for more audio/video of champion improv from the exotic North East.
