Some Lonnie Holley for you tomorrow, for no better reason than his surname is vaguely seasonal. One track each from "Just Before Music" (2012) and "Keeping A Record Of it" (2013).
I was lucky enough to see Mr Holley live at the church down the end of my road a few years ago. I'm not sure how to describe his performance. Let's settle for "distinctive".
"Here I Stand Knocking At Your Door" - Lonnie Holley
"From The Other Side Of The Pulpit" - Lonnie Holley
Very sorry to hear the sad news about Terry Hall, to whom others have already paid more eloquent tribute than I could.
For much of the 1970s we lived in South Africa and I relied on John Peel's weekly show on the BBC World Service to keep up with the UK music scene. I can still remember the thrill I felt the first time I heard "Too Much Too Young" come fizzing through the static. RIP Mr Hall.
