You may notice that I’ve not chosen Gorrilaz as one of this weeks three recommendations. It’s not an oversight, I simply never have and never will understand the hype about them. I really tried with Plastic Beach but I’m afraid I’ve thrown the towel in on Albarn and co at this stage. Darwin Deez gets the nod for his dancing displays.

Jazz weekend is upon us again. It’s that one weekend in the year when every langer on leeside suddenly remembers he “fucking loves the jazz, tis daycint, like!” So for those looking to click their approval, there’s plenty on offer. Brand New Heavies are bringing their brand of jazz, soul and R&B to the Savoy Theatre on Saturday. Herbie Hancock Band play alongside Jason Moran and the Bandwagon in the Everyman Palace Theatre also on Saturday. The Savoy hosts Maceo Parker Band on Sunday. If like me however you’re looking for a little something different then check out Jazzsteppa playing in Cyprus Avenue on Saturday.
