Tuesday, 16 January 2018


This is a re-post in memory of DOLORES O'RIORDAN who died yesterday.

I once mentioned in a post that I compiled my personal Best Of CRANBERRIES. And that I never ever would have released "Zombie" as a single, how ever big the success might have been.

CURIOSITY Hang On In There Baby (1992)

Another one off topic. CURIOSITY f.k.a. CURIOSITY KILLED THE CAT with a brilliant cover version of Johnny Bristol's "Hang On In There Baby".
I like both versions but CURIOSITY did a fuckin' good job here. Probably their best single, even I really like their first long player. (To be posted here as well one day.)

01 Hang On In There Baby (7" version)
02 Hang On In There Baby (Extended ClubMix)

JOHNNY HATES JAZZ Turn Back The Clock (1987)

OK, a bit off topic, as this is NOT INDIE at all... It's simply wonderful mainstream pop and made my days back in the 80s.
I still love the singles and my preferred local radio station plays them frequently - just like a few minutes ago.
01 Shattered Dreams
02 Heart of Gold
03 Turn Back the Clock
04 Don't Say It's Love
05 What Other Reason
06 I Don't Want to Be a Hero
07 Listen
08 Different Seasons
09 Don't Let It End This Way
10 Foolish Heart
11 Heart of Gold (J. Mendelsohn Mix)
12 Turn Back the Clock (J. Mendelsohn Mix)
13 I Don't Want to Be a Hero (Extended Mix)
I wish you all the best for 2018! Stay safe, stay cool! And peace!

CHILDHOOD Universal High (2017)

Today I stumbled over CHILDHOOD by pure accident and it got me in a minute.
Good god... The voice reminds me of young Paddy McAloon, the music is in parts as well Prefab Sprout, The Dream Academy and Funk influenced Northern Soul.
I hear Paul Weller, Lenny Kravitz, The James Taylor Quartet... Brilliant!

"Universal High" is the second long player from the boys from Nottingham and I just mailed them to get their permission to offer something as a download. So stay tuned.
I will keep you updated here.

ANDY PAWLAK finished his new album and it will be available as a download on
iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and other download services from
1st December 2017!!!
Buy it here!!!!!
It's influenced by Ólafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm.

There is a YouTube channel to promote the album here.

Check Andy's website here.

I know, a lot of you waited very patiently and now it's time for your reward.
I already wrote a bit about the album in an earlier post.
The album is calm and very emotional. Stories being told and full of love.
I took the cover picture in February this year. No photo shopping or else. Just cropping and labeling. The colours are like the cold winter morning actually was.
