The man's got excellent taste. He'll pick a great lineup.
We might see a reformed Doves!
no idea if he likes John Grant or not (I've not even heard him myself) but I bet he does.
of taking a handful of sleeping pills and trying to stay awake all the way through Dune.
Terrific performer in a terrific band. You're all a bunch of joyless goons, you joyless goons. Yes, his lyrics are pretty saccharine, but that's nice from time to time.
Not sure I fancy him as a curator though.
As a choice of curator, it's a weird one. It can't exactly be called "safe", as he's not a heavyweight like Bowie or Byrne or Ono, but as the cutting insights in this thread reveal, it's not the most adventurous of choices either.
But his Radio 6 show is fantastic, and I don't give a toss what anyone says, his music's even better. His lineup's going to be varied, considered, yet crowd-pleasing. I can't wait to see what he comes up with.
surprised by who'll take part. But I imagime we'll probably get a reformed Scritti Politti or Climie Fisher.
