Current listening...

Via ChickenYoghurt, I am currently listening to The Age Of The Understatement, by The Last Shadow Puppets (comprising Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys and Miles Kane of The Rascals), and rather enjoying it. So, here's a live version, which has a certain manic energy, of the title track...
