Just a few things from around the blogs.
We've done Marc Ribot, now let's do John Zorn. Undomundo posts a couple of Zorn pieces, with his usual accomplices, including Ribot and the great Cyro Baptista. Give em a listen. [More John Zorn]
I've been a Billy Bragg fan for more years than I care to think now, and I still keep on enjoying him. He's one of Britain's greatest lyricists. His new album is out very soon, so he's getting a bit of mp3 blog action, for example from Catfish Vegas, Choir Croak... and To the dogs. [More Billy Bragg]
I think the wonderful Scroobius Pip has made an appearance on this blog before. There's another Dan Le Sac collaboration, "Look for the Woman", posted at Music=Liberation.
One of my favourite ever cover versions is The Be-Good Tanyas (the bluegrassy female vocal harmony group who achieved prominensce from their part in O Brother, Where Art Thou) doing Prince's "When Doves Cry". Check it out at Swillmerchant.
