Colin Murray: 4 Down

Sorry for the mistake last week. Although Mr Murray was busying himself in the Fame Academy (why oh why did Barry not win?!?) it didn’t stop another Crimea tune, Raining Planets, being played in his Radio 1 slot. I figured this out literally 20 minutes before the recording was taken down. And now you can’t even listen to the thing. Oh well, just gotta wait for the album release in May don’t ya?

Anyway, last night he played Man and you can listen again here for the next week. Skip to 1hr 20m in if you want babble, or just 1:25 for the tune. And read more for both show’s tracklistings. Annnd tune in next week, same time same place for the next Crimea track, I have this weird feeling it’ll be Bombay Sapphire Coma.

    I have a similarly weird feeling it’ll fucking rock. =)

    For those who missed (Raining) Planets, maybe they’d like to check out the demo that was up on Myspace a while back:

    Ed: Link removed cos it’s streamable again…

    Sure it’ll be much polished for the album, but it already sounds great there.

    “Currently residing in the where-are-they-now file…”

    Man / Red October also sounds tops.

    Hope that “Who’s Laughing Now” and “Cracking Skulls” make reappearances sometime in the future…
