Marianne Faithfull

An 'evening in the Weimar Republic' with Marianne is probably not what first inspired George Grosz, but it's a nice thought. At all events, La Faithfull's wracked interpretations of the songs of Brecht, Weill and co is surely enough to bring out the beast in us all.

Little Axe

Skip McDonald's fumping treatise on how the blues lives on in dub, gospel, hip hop, funk and so on. There's a new album on the way in late September but make sure you catch them live at least once in your life.
