There are two things you can rely on in London over the August Bank Holiday weekend - rain and the Notting Hill Carnival. They have both duly arrived.
I haven't been to Carnival for years - I can't be doing with the crowds - but that is no reason not to bombard you with four vintage soca tunes. As a bonus I've added the track that won Superblue the Road March title at the Trinidad Carnival this year, a mere 33 years after his first triumph. I'm three days late or four days early, depending on your disposition.
"Rock It" - Merchant
"Companero" - Mighty Gabby
"Bus Conductor" - Poser
"I Don't Mind" - Winston Soso
"Fantastic Friday" - Superblue
Here is one of Superblue's main rivals this year, with a distinctly peculiar video.
