Last FM

No one has ever really been sure what it’s for or why it still exists but I’ve just reached my 6000th artist on last.fm (dodgy tagging allowing).

It’s Taksim Hijazi with Subeit bin Ambar from Zanzibar, or Tanzania as it’s now known as part of the Excavated Shellac compilation of oldies but goldies. But the buggers won’t let me embed that track which rather spoils this moment of great historical importance.

It’s a good compilation but calls itself an alternate’ history of the world’s music in the modern fashion of not being able to say something is good without putting it in opposition to something else.
