The #AprilSongs is sort of a bit of a chore but I am determined to complete it and it has made me revisit and discover music in my collection live today's selection "Monday Night" by The Golden Palominos from their eponymous album.
The Golden Palominos are (or were ) a fluid inventive and adventurous musical collective led by drummer Anton Fier with a core set of musicians featuring Bill Laswell and Nicky Skopelitis, but among their guests were Michael Stipe, John Lydon and Fred Frith, as well as many others.
I first got into them when I bought "A Dead Horse" probably on the basis of a John Peel play or NME review or both, and was blown away by the way it was both incredibly polished but so far away from the rock norm while also being very close to it, with stunningly clear production.
I am now wondering whether to treat myself to a vinyl copy, because my record player sounds so good, but I can also listen to it on the walk to work or from my network, so maybe that is just another thing that I don't need to buy, but we shall see.
So it's Monday morning and time to drag myself out to work.
Have a good one everyone.
