Late switch to the running order I had planned following the announcement of the death of Andy Gill. Not the way I wanted to open the 300th edition of the show, but events.
Besides a bit of vintage Gang Of Four to open, there’s new stuff from Benefits that you need in your life and an absolute belter of a soul track from Tommy Down which may be the record of the week. And Nelson Can release a new LP at the same time as announcing that they’re splitting up, which sucks as they’re great. Oh well, enjoy while you can.
