Music alert

One of my favourite bands, Show of Hands, has a new album out soon called Arrogance, Ignorance and Greed (title courtesy of global financial crisis).

This is just a little plug to say that if you like fine melodies sung by strong male voices (not these whining indie boys), accomplished musicianship (is that a word?) and folky songs with a modern message, you will like the Hands. Add in Miranda Sykes, whom they often tour with and who has a glorious voice, and you have a dreamy combination. They even add in a dollop of humour too for good measure.

Click on the link and you can listen to extracts from some of the songs on the new album to see if you agree with me.
