I've always quite liked Scottish country-punk folkers (not a great description admittedly, or that accurate either maybe) Sons And Daughters, while also feeling they've never quite fulfilled the promise of their early records, especially Love The Cup. I quite liked the album This Gift they did with Bernard Butler (which had two good singles- Gilt Complex and Darling) but it didn't go down that well with the fans or the critics. They've disappeared a bit recently but this is a good one.
The photo is Man Ray's portrait of Sinclair Lewis, American writer and playwright. I love this picture, his expression, the coat pulled up and the lampstand behind him. We've all felt a bit like Sinclair looks in this picture.
