SFR Soundsystem 31032012

Back to normal this week after last week's dose of the doldrums caused me to pull my show. I pretty much stuck with last week's playlist but with a few alterations. 

I saw the Selecter this week and they were brilliant so in honour of that I added a 3-in-a-row of Selecter tracks: one of their 2Tone hits in a live version, a track off the Rare album and their wonderful cover of Amy Winehouse's Back to Black. The two Bombskare tracks were sent to me by the band last week and on the strength of this material their new album promises to be an absolute belter. I also played Stop Press!'s new tune. I love this band's fresh and energetic take on ska; their English Life EP is great, here's hoping for more CD's in the not-too-distant future. 

For me though, the highlight of the playlist is Nicky Thomas's live performance of Is It Because I Am Black. The YouTube link is below the playlist - the man is on fire! I've lost count of how many times I've watched that clip. I've got the whole concert as a video, if YouTube ever get round to letting me put videos longer than 30 min's up I'll post it.
