FEATURE: “This Song….” with Finn O’Brien of The Jacques
1. This song I remember from my childhood: Cornershop – Brimful of Asher
It was my favourite song when I was a baby and I can really remember demanding that my parents play it repeatedly.
2.This song inspired me to be a musician: Timeless Melody by The La’s
I remember wanting to write songs like Lee Mavers at around 6 or 7 when I first started playing music. My personal music collection at the time consisted of two of those mini-album samplers that used to come free with The Observer; one was from The Strokes’ Room On Fire (also highly influential) and the other was from The La’s’ album – I picked this song because fittingly enough, its remained a favourite up until the present day.
Producer, singer/ songwriter and DJ, Idris Elba’s first release of 2021 champions new and up and coming Canadian talent and hip-hop enthusiast Connor Price on their collaborative record ‘Courteney Cox’. Released by 7Wallace and Price’s Toronto based imprint, 4 Of Clubs, ‘Courteney Cox’ is high-octane and an infectiously hooky slice of synth-soaked trap – a playful and tongue-in-cheek homage to Connor’s favourite actress and childhood crush.
