I thoroughly enjoyed this list today, it was exactly what I needed.

Thanks, Ejay. My lists have been a little manic of late, so this theme is a nice change of pace.

Particularly liked Blue Lagoon and the ducks song, I think the lyric is a variation on the German children's song Alle meine Entchen, which I have probably sung as many times as my daughter has had baths..

Damn you, shoegazer - now I have to check out the whole of Mercury Rev's back catalogue. Do you think I'm made of money?????

Shoey said...

Nilpferd, Curiously another almost famous Lemon Jelly tune was entitled "In the Bath". Thought the sample for this one was from an old BBC kids show, didn't know it was it was a real song. Not sure the Shoeteens have ever taken a bath, but this was a favorite of theirs to play in the car.

Toffee, There was a good double Rev best of a couple of years back as a place to start.

Toffee, I can D-box Deserter's Songs and All is Dream if you like. I love the first one but am less certain about the second. Some nice tracks on it though.

@ Shoey & Mnemonic - thanks - I'll check these out. I'm suffering from music overload at the moment so I may leave it a week or two!

@ shane - thanks for that

Yeah, shane, that was a great tip, and the album is just a glittering gem.

Another freebie is 'Rims' from Kenny AKA King Creosote, from his forthcoming (April) album - go to https://digital.dominorecordco.com/ But given your recent FC gig, you're no doubt way ahead of me, and blimpy probably has a bootleg of the whole album already...

Has anyone else come across ideomag.com? It's like lastfm, but produces an online 'magazine' personalised for you, with videos, tracks and articles. You have to tell it your favourites, of course, I presume it's an aggregator, skimming other music sites. But it seems pretty neat, and gave me the tip about King Creosote...
