Listen in REAL PLAYER or download

01 Television personalities : I know where Syd Barret lives
(Dan Treacy also disappeared, we now know that he is back and that his new record will be released in february on Domino, this song is the perfect example of the englishman sweet madness, as seen by a french man, They could have been bigger than the beatles ?)
02 Soleil Rhana : Soul sitar
(Under the sun of Arthur cravan’s villa, women are dancing on sitar sounds while the poet is training for his next fight)
03 Richard Hayman : Dansero
(Arthur cravan was a boxer, a poet, a dancer, would he have loved this one ?)
04 Idris Muhamad : express yourself
(A drummer and a classic, from Idris to NWA)
05 Akufen : deck the house

(That’s the theme of "les enquêtes du commissaire Maigret" Tv show based on Simenon’s heroe, but a special version by MELODY FOUR)
12 Caetano veloso : Billy jean
(billy jean is a fantastic song, its bass line drives me crazy, caetano veloso is a marvellous singer, a true golden voice, is there a sweetest way to end a show ?)

Can't choose between clubbin, electronic pop, soul, baroque pop, tropicalia.
That's all it is about, no choice to make, no scale of artistic values between them.

(latest discovery i did, on the "Gilles peterson digs america" VA, listen to it one time, and you can't help yourself coming back to it)

(Club music upon typical dizzee vocals, began to dance in the studio)
