ORGAN THING OF THE DAY: MARC CARROLL, AGATA CORDOSO. and VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR do Christmas their way….

THING OF THE DAY December 11th, new single from Irish singer songwriter Marc Carroll, the time when Van Der Graaf Generatot got all Christmas on us, and who is Agata Cardoso?

Today we’ll keep it nice and simple, just like this rather tine new single from MARC CARROLL that comes out next year. The Fool Disguised In Beggars Clothes is the name of the song, it comes from hid forthcoming album Stone Beads & Silver, the single is out on One Little Indian Records in January, the album in February.  More details from www.marccarroll.com should you feel the need…

Sometimes less is more, simple is good and Marc Carroll is more than enough….

Question is, is this for real? Peter Hammill in a big red suit and white beard, his other Christmas self?This, we are told, is the mighty VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR on John Peel’s radio show back in December 1971…

A plague of what?  And of course we now have an excuse post some Van Der Graaf in full flow, it does not get any better than this, we make no apologies for this Tuesday sliceof self indulgence….

This is a recent piece of AGATA CARDOSO art, she’s one of our favourite London-based artists right now. we lie what she says, we like how she says it, we like the way she dares to not always get it right, we like her fragile strength, her commitment. no safe way followed here….
