alabama exile check

Having discovered Hobotalk courtesy of Songs:Illinois I have been playing the free downloads from their site pretty much at hourly intervals. Where have I been??? They were even nominated for the Mercury Prize, must have been the day I forgot to get up. I am making up for it now though. Check them out.
Alabama 3 have also tickled my countrry ears. Again a band that kind of passed me by. Here is a techno countrry blues gospel number
Alabama 3 Ain't goin to Goa mp3

From the excellent Exile on Coldharbour Lane.
I am now off to make my tea..and enjoy the last of the weekend.

You think Exile is good, get a hold of Outlaw.

Stand out tracks for me are

Keep Your Shades On and Hello I'm Johnny Cash

Be converted!

hi simon, I think i damn well will...can't believe i have just discovered this outfit, there may have been a track or two on Uncut but I obviously had my hair dryer on when they were playing. A3 are the tops.

Came across this summary of A3.
Just about sums it up.

These are not tracks that you should play to people you don’t know very well as they’ll probably
think you’re a bit weird. This ain’t pop music, it isn’t gentle, relaxing, uplifting or anything like. It’s thinking music,
music you don’t hear,you listen to.

xcellent summation. I hate music that just washes along and usually ends up irritating the johdpurs off me. This is indeed big vista sounds with lots of images crashing around. I am checking them out as a Christmas pressie to myself.
