MARTIN’S TRACK OF THE WEEK (13 NOVEMBER 2017)

This week we did a Peaky Blinders special, to celebrate the return of the show to BBC 2. One of the most stylish shows in recent years the team behind the show are flawless in their use of music, and particularly music of a certain type. Let’s just say, if you are a Nick Cave fan then this show is very much for you.

My actual track of this week is from somebody I know nothing about, somebody I had not heard of before the show – Queen Kwong and her powerful cover of the Chris Issac track Baby did a bad bad thing. Queen Kwong manages to imbue this track with a frightening menace that is scary yet exciting to hear… 

 

Ronan’s Track of the Week (13 November 2017)

Our Peaky Blinders special on the 13th November featured a couple of PJ Harvey tracks. From her second album ‘Rid of Me’, released in 1993, we played ‘Man Size’. It was recorded at the time by Steve Albini, giving it a minimal, raw sound that still sounds extremely fresh. The second PJ Harvey track we played was ‘Broken Harp’, from her seventh studio album ‘White Chalk’, released in 2007. The album is quieter, and much starker. I like the use of different instruments on the album: pianos, banjos, harp, and various keyboard instruments; some played by former Magic Band (i.e. Captain Beefheart) member Eric Drew Feldman.
