Om beach just isn't India.

To celebrate Acid Jazz's 21st birthday, a collection of 16 singles from the 21st century - from the selfconsciously hip to the wholesomely soulful to the sadly lost, Smoove to Pleasure Beach to Grand Union to Steve Marriott & the Moments; all of it fundamentally mod in outlook, not to say Welleresque. (Yep, he'shere too.) Music speaking to a world that takes Duffy at face value but wants to get into the backstory too. Plus the odddecent joke: "The revolution will be televised…Betamax will be available for the old skool."

On the evening of 22 September 2004, Lost exploded into the viewing schedules of unsuspecting television audiences like a jetliner crash-landing on an empty beach. That opening scene, in which 48 survivors escaped the flaming wreckage of said plane on said beach, has never really been surpassed in the five series since.
