Nothing For The Few

On Wednesday I headed down to my local second-hand record shop to feed my addiction before they and other so-called "non-essential" shops shut for a month. It was worth the trip. As well as snapping up a double CD compilation of Spanish soul from the 60s and 70s - coming this way soon no doubt - there were rich pickings in the "10 CDs for £5" box.

One of them was a Will Oldham collaboration of which I was previously unaware, perhaps unsurprisingly seeing as he seems to do about one a week. It is an EP called "All Most Heaven" released in 2000 and credited to Rian Murphy & Will Oldham. Rian Murphy is apparently a drummer and was a medium-sized cheese at Drag City records at the time. He must have had a bit of clout because he also managed to rope in the likes of Jim O'Rourke and Steve Albini as well.  

"Song Of Most" - Rian Murphy & Will Oldham

"Song Of All" - Rian Murphy & Will Oldham

The video has nothing to do with anything except it now appears next to these two in my iTunes. Here's some 1980s Serbian rock to see you into the weekend. 


  1. Such a tease.....amention of Spanish soul from the 60s and 70s and..........

  2. Have Riblja Corba been listening to Mott Teh Hoople records?

    1. Possibly. Definitely Thin Lizzy and quite likely Status Quo too.
