Chop’s Journal - 19 Jul 2020

I’m seriously running behind with these posts so actually writing this in early August & struggling to remember what, if anything, happened this week.

I did contribute to The London Ukulele Project’s charity single in a very small way. I recorded a very short piece of audio & video to help them create a chorus of over 100 ukes at the end of their version of “With A Little Help From My Friends”. You can see me in the video too.


Dinosaurs On The Mountain - The Flaming Lips

Music I’m enjoying

The Beths’ second album has been dominating my album listening this week. It’s an absolute joy and put a smile on my face every time I played it. 

Occasional Top Fives

Maybe this will be a fortnightly thing in between the A2Z lists. Not sure but I’ll see how it goes. This topic proved to be a good one with loads of different songs making a corking playlist which I’ve linked to below. This one wasn’t my idea so big thanks to @sharkastic for the suggestion.
