Lewis Taylor’s slightly sought-after version of Trout Mask Replica has hitherto been available on the web only in dribs and drabs . This weekend it is downloadable in its entirety, along with a mish-mash of other Lewis Taylor rarities at Okayplayer. [now removed]  Lewis Taylor retired from the music industry in 2006.

Findlay Brown, on the other hand, released his first recordings in 2006. One of the A-sides of his second single was the Captain Beefheart song ‘I’m Glad’. The Guardian described his live rendition of this song as a “luminous ballad“, while The Times heard it as “Johnny Cash-borrowing“. I’m Glad is downloadable at Findlay Brown’s website or at his MySpace page. A video of a recent performance of the song at YouTube shows little of Findlay Brown’s face.

The Liverpool group The Zutons named themselves after a well-known Lunar Note player. Now please welcome Philadelphia group Dr Dog, named after that darkest of medical tunes on Lick My Decals Off, Baby.
