Playlist from the CCA (4/12/2011)

Thoughts on "Lawrence of Belgravia" and "Take Three Girls" will follow once I've had a nice long sleep. In the meantime, here's what I fairly ineptly played at the CCA after the films and James Kirk had spun some gems:

Memphis "You Supply The Roses" (Swamplands) <-- I asked James Kirk if he was ok with me playing it and like a gent he said 'yes' :)

Fargo "Sunny Day Blue" (Capitol)
Lali Puna "Remember" (Morr Music)
Cosmetics "Black Leather Gloves" (Captured Tracks)
The Flamin' Groovies "Shake Some Action" (Sire) <--- because it got a mention in the Dolly Mixture film!
