I’m being whisked away to Edinburgh for dinner and an overnight in Malmaison today, which will be nice.
Here are a couple of my favourite tracks from Isobel Campbell’s collaboration with Mark Lanegan Ballad of The Broken Seas. On these versions, however the Lanegan part is sung by Eugene Kelly, formerly of The Vaselines, Eugenius and others. The first couple of times I saw Campbell perform the album Kelly performed and did a sterling job filling in for Lanegan. They did a particularly good version of Son of A Gun.

Isobel Campbell – Ramblin‘ Man
Missed Hell’s Kitchen last night but am not happy that Ms Dynamite has been sacked. There is far too much sympathy for aging soap actresses going on for my liking. Think that my allegiance will have to switch too Daneille now, best out of a bad bunch.
