Plentycast #5

I usually end up recording and posting these things on a Sunday morning so they're up on the site by early afternoon but this morning was taken up by watching the overnight recording of game 1 of the NLCS between the Phillies and the Giants. As a Red Sox fan, and without my team in this year's MLB postseason, I find myself in the usual position of "anyone but the Yankees" so thankfully Texas have squared their series against the Empire at 1-1. I don't mind which of the other 3 teams left win, just not them...

So, that's my life at the moment. Day after day of baseball. October baseball, the best. What's this got to do with the latest podcast? Fuck all really, but I thought I'd set some background as to what I've been up to recently. Again, it's the usual schtick. Couple of new tunes, few old tunes and a couple of demo versions of (as yet) unreleased tunes thanks to the wonders of t'interweb. It does have some uses after all. On you go then -

Plentycast #4

You join us with your humble correspondent not in the best of health. It's been a week of man flu and as such a couple of coughs have made it into the show this time around. I blame the government...

Anyway, some louder moments on the podcast this time around. I think I was still a bit pissed off by the Rovers' performance the day before so threw in some truculence at the last minute. I think too that I'm allowed to play a Joanna Newsom track in 2 podcasts in a row - it may be a faux pas of the highest order but the reasoning behind it is pretty clear. So, in the words of the late Ron Pickering, away you go -

Tracklisting -

1. The Lapse - Buffet
2. Hot Snakes - Plenty For All
3. Smog - Vessel In Vain
4. Chris Brokaw - I Remember
