Jonathan Wilson, The Scala, London

“Love it is an apple core, before the fruit was beautiful, now it is a circle, life and death a circle, the circle is a cadence,” Jonathan Wilson maintains on the languid hippie anthem “Gentle Spirit”. You dig? He digs us. He tells us so.

The Last Waltz (U)

Scorsese shot this film of the The Band's farewell gig at the San Francisco Wonderland in 1976 while he was still working on New York, New York, a very different sort of musical.

Album: Neil Young International Harvesters, A Treasure (Reprise)

Featuring concert recordings from his 1984-5 tour, this shows that even while his studio releases were adrift in genre-hopping chaos, Neil Young could always cut the mustard with a crack band behind him – in this case, a star-studded country ensemble of Spooner Oldham on piano, Ben Keith on pedal steel, and the fiddler Rufus Thibodeaux adding a cajun drive.

Carola Long: 'Bold lips make an outfit look instantly modern'

The biggest fashion story for spring/summer is bright colour. However, it takes a particularly joyful dresser to brave head-to-toe acid-yellow clothes in January, so bold lips offer an easy entrée into the trend.

And now for the encore...

Last week, rock stars chose their favourite live albums. Here, our readers have their say

Album: Souad Massi, Ô Houria (Liberty), (AZ/Universal)

Eleven years as an expatriate Algerian have left their mark on Massi's music, in which the strains of Arabic and western influences are more tightly intertwined than for any comparable crossover artist.

Midlake, Roundhouse, London

When Midlake last played London, back in January, the venue for their songs of bucolic yearning was Wilton's Music Hall in the East End, an apt alliance of architectural and musical renovation. Tonight, it's the refurbished engine-shed of the Roundhouse, equally apt in the sense of providing a post-industrial setting for their pre-industrial tales, as if two clocks were ticking in opposite directions, their hands fortuitously coincident only in this exact point at this exact time.
