To get today underway I am going to run some Fun Lovin’ Criminals up the flag pole and see who salutes.
This is ‘Up On The Hill’ the lead track from their second, much mellower album, 100% Columbian. I could have gone for the lead single, Love Unlimited, which has more of an urban feel, but decided that this had a more hazy feel to it.
When they did it live at Glastonbury in 98 the BBC understandably took the opportunity to show lots of hazy shots of Glasonbury Tor, which sticks in my mind (rather like Elbow’s post thunderstorm sunset performance last year).
Huey’s Saturday morning show on 6Music is essential listening and Gerard and I will be there next February to see FLC at the Shepherds Bush Odeon. Tickets still available.
Over to Gerard, Roy, Sindy, Anne and Andy for their picks for today.
