Playlist – May 2019

Playlist - May 2019 montageMay 2019 has been a varied one musically for me but has been highlighted by a trio of what could be called comeback albums.

First came The Wildhearts’ Renaissance Men that saw the unlikeliest band of 90s Britrock survivors unleash possibly their best album in two decades.

Then German rockers Rammstein emerged from a decade of greatest hits tours and side projects to unveil another powerful blast of their Neue Deutsche Harte industrial metal, albeit one without a title.

And then after the best part of 30 years Stray Cats released 40, an album that is certainly their best since their heyday in the early to mid 80s and mark their 40th year together as a band.

On top of that attending my second Super Strong Style 16 wrestling tournament from PROGRESS Wrestling, Guernsey’s Liberation Day celebrations and the appearance of Bournemouth garage rockers The Electric Shakes on Spotify, as well as a couple of other bits, have provided a lot of good listening and made this month’s playlist another varied selection…


  • The Electric Shakes – Lightspeed Mother (from their self-titled debut)
  • IDLES – I’m Scum (from Joy As An Act Of Resistance and also the current PROGRESS Wrestling warm up music)
  • The Wildhearts – Let Em Go (from Renaissance Men)
  • Rammstein – Puppe (from Untitled)
  • Stray Cats – Desperado (from 40)
  • AFI – I Hope You Suffer (from Burials, also Jimmy Havoc’s entrance music at Super Strong Style 16)
  • Cokie The Clown – Punk Rock Saved My Life (from You’re Welcome)
  • Nick Cave feat. PJ Harvey – Henry Lee (from Murder Ballads)
  • Billy Bragg – You Woke Up My Neighbourhood (from Don’t Try This At Home, also covered by The Space Pirates Of Rocquaine)
  • Limp Bizkit – My Way (from Chocolate Starfish And The Hotdog Flavoured Water)

Once again Spotify have messed around with the ordering but here’s the full slightly garbled playlist so far this year to listen to:

And as a bonus as its not on Spotify and to mark Guernsey’s annual day, The Space Pirates Of Rocquaine’s alternate version of the island’s national song – Sarnia Cherie (I think this is a demo version from before the release of their debut album Vraic & Ruin)…
