Burnt Offerings 10
That's us up to double figures now and nearly a third of the way through this series. Thank goodness for that, I hear you cry.
The first act have featured before but not in their own right so therefore meet the criteria.
The Watson Twins (Leigh and Chandra) were born in Tulsa, Oklahoma raised in Loiusville, Kentucky and now stay in Los Angeles.
They have appeared her before with songs from Rabbit Fur Coat their collaboration with Jenny Lewis and I once saw them perform with her.
They have also had a number of records in their own right and Shoot the Lights Out is taken from their 2006 album Southern Manners
The Watson Twins - Shoot The Lights out
The Concretes are an eight piece indie band from Stockholm, Sweden fronted by Maria Eriksson.
They have a number of very good songs in their own right but the one on BO10 is a cover of the Rolling Stones number Miss You a track from their 2004 single Say Something New.
They also did a cover version of Take That's Back For Good which I've not heard but which I suspect will be better than the original.
The Concretes - Miss You
We started in Los Angeles, popped over to Stockholm and finish this week's odyssey in County Durham.
The Lavender Faction were a band from the early 90's that never really made it and never actually produced an album.
However they seem to have developed a somewhat cult following with Jigsaw Records giving us an anthology Taking Down the Walls in 2014 which is available on Bandcamp and which is described as a sludgefest (which is good I think).
The lavender Faction - In My Mind
Volume 11 next week.
