It’s been a busy few weeks, if not round the blog. I’ve been enjoying the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe, and generally feeling pretty damn tired as a result.
I have written a couple of bits for God Is In The TV zine, which I encourage you to have a look at: my Aretha Franklin obituary was written last Thursday, and you can find it here. I also contributed to the twenty best Madonna songs article on the magazine, and you can read mine and everyone else’s contributions here.
I’ve also enjoyed Mamma Mia Here We Go Again at the cinema- and should you be so inclined, here’s a piece I wrote in the very early days of the blog comparing Abba to Joy Division, and amongst other things, seen Pussy Riot and John Grant at the festival.
I don’t know about you, but I sometimes feel exhausted by the sheer amount of music that’s out there, new and old.
So, based on what I’ve written above, if you hear one track today, it should be this. Aretha Franklin’s recording of ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ from her gospel album Amazing Grace. Just fantastic.
