Angel Corpus Christi tops the pack this week with a track deemed too 'heavy' (content-wise) to put on the US album. So what did we do? We made it the first single in the UK!

"So if you see me comin', you better step aside
A lot of kids didn't and a lot of kids died.
Don't be reaching for your knife it won't do you any good
Look, whatcha gonna do...stab a bullet?
And I can get by your metal detector,
Don't mess with me and my Beretta"

Her recent homage to Lou Reed called, (what else?) 'Louie Louie' is well worth checking out. Go here, look around...

Lady Ann

The best single to come out of Jamaica in 1982, was 'Informer' by Lady Ann. Produced by Joe Gibbs, it features a killer bass line and a hook that simply chanted the word "Murderer". I used to have the 7", the 12" and the album. Somehow I've ended up with just an mp3. My advice? Never move. You lose stuff.

The (English) Beat are back in full effect at the Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett, May 16th. See you there.

There's a brand new Commander Cody album called 'Dopers Drunks and Everyday Losers' (Blind Pig Records). It's highly enjoyable.

And finally, Sara Hickman wrote to tell me Stephen Bruton finally lost his battle with throat cancer yesterday. This is desperately sad news. Anyone tuning in to North Fork Sound over the last couple of years will know he was a favourite here and I'm sure Nofoso regulars Kris Kristofferson, Bonnie Raitt, Delbert McClinton and Jimmie Dale Gilmore would agree his presence in their lives made a huge difference, both personally and professionally. My condolences to his family and all his fans.
