I was listening to Giles Peterson while preparing the food on Saturday and heard Kate Tempest for the first time, she was in session and I have to admit I was well impressed enough to head over to the Ninja Tunes website and order the album. You really should check her out and if your in the UK check out the session with Giles on the 6 Music site.
Listening to her got me thinking of Jamie T and the fact that he hasn’t released anything for a long time, nothing since the second album in 2009. Here is one of the highlights of that album Kings and Queens which was also released as a 12″ single. The track threw me the first time I heard it, as not many people have sampled Mensi from the Angelic Upstarts but The Man Machine samples the introduction to a couple of songs from their live album the second of which has Mensi paraphrasing the late great Alex Harvey.
