New posts for a new year: Weekly top 5 playlist

It’s a new year! Although, considering it is already the tenth of January, you’re probably well-aware of this. In true rock star fashion, the Gloucester Blues Project has only just emerged from a festive season of binge drinking and careless tossing of televisions out of hotel windows. We woke up in a gutter somewhere in Potchefstroom two days ago wearing nothing but cowboy hats and fishnet stockings. Imagine our shock when a kind young chap informed us that it is already January as he hastily fastened the handcuffs.

Alright, so the truth is we enjoyed a quiet Christmas with our families, drinking tasty wine, eating fruity puddings and yakking about what a cracking old lad that Jacques Kallis is. But regardless of our rather uneventful holiday season, we are looking forward to a year of exciting band developments, big gigs in faraway places and new material that will change the face of blues music forever (well…perhaps not…but you can bob your head to it).

So, in the spirit of new developments, you will start to see a lot more content going up on our blog, starting with this new weekly segment showcasing some of the tracks that we think all of you should be listening to. We’ll pick our Top 5 songs for each week with the number one track earning the right to an accompanying YouTube video for your viewing pleasure. So without further adieu, here’s this week’s top 5:

  1. Jeff Healey – Yer Blues
  2. Stevie Ray Vaughan – Give me Back my Wig
  3. Gerry Rafferty – Baker Street (this one is in remembrance)
  4. Seasick Steve – Hobo Low
  5. Flight of the Conchords – Sellotape (this is highly recommended when you’re in need of a laugh, WARNING: it will remain stuck in your head for at least a week)

Enjoy!
