Listening Club - 13th May 2012

Hello again,

Sun has finally poked it's head out in London, and after spending yesterday afternoon enjoying live music and jynnuntonix at an impromptu street party, I dare to suggest that summer may have arrived in this part of the world.

Which is just as well, as I've spent most of the week cleaning up LC-HQ following last week's chaos - the first time I've missed a playback and oh boy, look what happened... @rebeldiamond7 's choice of Foxy Shazam's eponymous 2010 album certainly provoked a stong Marmite reaction. Some hated, some loved, lines were drawn and shots were fired, but huge respect to @rebeldiamond7 for giving it a go, this is truly what the LC should be about.

Now the dust has settled, and been hoovered away, we find @dorianrogers in the hot seat...

"As you can tell from my inventive Twitter handle my name is Dorian Rogers. I edit and write stuff for the music website/blog Not professionally though as you can tell if you read my stuff.

I spend most of my time listening to jangly guitar based indie pop, miserable country music and chin stroking guitar noise records. Although none of that really describes the choice I made this week.

I thought it would take me a while to come up with a selection if I was picked, but in the end it really selected itself. I had just picked up a CD of this album so i could have a digital copy after previously only owning it on slightly scratched vinyl.  It fitted the bill for me by being unusual, unlikely to be well known and most importantly a fantastic record. It isn't going to be to everyone's tastes I'm sure but I hope that people enjoy it and find something to like.

Happy listening!"
