Stan says: #Friday. There are times when the streets of London Town are keen to remind those who walk them of their mortality. In the aftermath of such reminders we often fall back on a familiar musical selection for comfort, (some ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’ and ‘Graceland’ here, a spot of Millie Jackson and The Staples Singers there), records whose warmth and presence we hope will shield us from the realities of the world for at least short while. But what if the hand of god were to reach down and remove said records from our grasp, telling us (rather sternly through his chosen mouthpiece), “Henceforth thou shalt only be permitted to listen to records that have been released during the past three calendar months in moments of existential trauma!!”, … what songs then we hear you ask? Well in that particular scenario we have concluded that we could start out by listening to a track like this old school sounding belter by San Franciscan five piece Extra Classic, slipping into some flares, growing a handlebar and possibly lighting some incense in a bid to really seal the deal on the C’68 vibe. And now to locate the rest of the playlist.
