We keep going amid the lockdown. There are new releases, and still, new music coming through, and buying music right now is the only way we can help. The events listing is still being updated, but obviously, an awful lot is being postponed, cancelled or changed right now.
This has been an unusual one, that I’ve tried to write a few times and shelved. Sometimes you have inspiration, sometimes…you don’t. So I left it for a few months, and returned to it last week to pick up the thread again, and this time? It worked out, so here are ten songs about spying […]
There is a good reason why it has taken 347 editions of my Tuesday Ten series to get ’round to doing my favourite opening tracks – mainly because I didn’t want to come across all Rob Gordon and Barry Judd in High Fidelity.

Part eight, and we’re nearly there.
Driving down to Cambridge on a warm summer’s day last Sunday got Daisy and I thinking about songs that we associate with the summer.
