  1. Two for January would be Steve Earle's album of covers of his late son Justin's work and the new Steven Wilson LP The Future Bites.

  3. Soul Jazz are just the very best at that kind of thing, I think. I still rate their % Dynamite series as among the very best reggae + compilations. On a similar note, digging around in my record collection the other day, I came across Blue Note's Blue Juice and Blue Breaks & Beats comps - which were equally well curated. Easy enough, I guess, if you have access to everything in the cupboard. Let us know what you think of Cafe Exil and the Cuba comp!

  4. We've just received our copies of the latest Ultimate Music Guide: Talking Heads. As it usually does working on an issue like this, it's provided the perfect pretext to extensively re-investigate the records you loved anyway (for me that's Remain In Light) and to discover ones you might have missed (again for me: The Name Of This Band Is...) So which is your favourite, and why? Is Brian Eno the best thing that happened to Talking Heads? What's the best "world" music you've been introduced to by David Byrne? Let us know your thoughts on this and anything else TH-related... JR

  5. I think the reunion footage from the Council doc was withheld from press screeners, so it was a genuine surprise on broadcast.

On a similar tip, you should keep an eye out for Cafe Exil - New Adventures In European Music 1972 - 1980, which is due on Ace in a week or so's time. It features a lot of familiar names - Amon Duul II, Faust, Eno, Michael Rother, Cluster, Popol Vuh etc - as well as people like Annette Peacock, Piero Umiliani, Tony Esposito. I can happily eat this stuff for breakfast. I can also heartily recommend Soul Jazz's Cuba: Music And Revolution comp, Experiments In Latin Music: 1975 - 1985 Vol 1.

  8. Uncut's hotly-anticipated end of year issue is on sale now, featuring a world exclusive interview with Paul McCartney! The magazine also comes bagged with two gifts: a Best Of 2020 CD and our exclusive Macca scrapbook, Paul Stories. You're right: two thumbs up. When you've got your copy from here you can let us know what you think about Michael Bonner's cracking interview. What are your thoughts about the McCartney albums so far? What are you hoping for from McCartney III? Will you be shelling out for Neil Young's Archives or to see the reformed original lineup of The Damned? And which a
