Tonight, the second re-up. A compilation of covers by the great jfg. Don't miss this gem (here) there's full of aural treasures in it. Could have been a joke, it's a winner. After a one year staying in Berlin, he's back in France and in music action. Buy his stuff on bandcamp (here), there's not a filler in it. Text of the first post below.
If you're a regular visitor of FS, you know how I dig JFG, one of the rare singer-songwriter of the last decade to make me feel the way I felt about Dan Treacy, Mark Perry, Peter Perrett or Nikki Sudden in the 80's. Unfortunately, he (hitherto) did not meet any moment of glory and sure living in France did not help. Now he's relocated in Berlin and he just opened a record store called Foxhole (weserstrasse 179 Neukölln, see picture below) and I hope he'll find in this town a better place to live than in this rotting country. Kevin Coyne and Nikki Sudden did, no reason jfg doesn't. Here is a compilation of covers he did in the first decade of the century with various line-ups. He always succeeds in making others songs his. A treasure in which everyone can grab sound pearls. Good luck to him for the future. His bandcamp page here (his last EP is a masterpiece). Previous posts there. Below, in streaming, a personal subjective selection covering the various styles of the LP.
