and Queen Adreena

I recently signed up to last.fm1. It is a great site - you find music similar to your current tastes. You can either just plug in names of bands and do various searches around that, or put a piece of software that notes what you listen to and how often (yes, it does sound a bit 1984) and recommends things on the basis of that. One recommendation it came up with that was so good I now have three albums and an EP by them is Queen Adreena.

Now, people who know me IRL (or have at least seen what I'm listening to at work) will know that I have weird taste in music. Queen Adreena are described as an
independent punk-ish, gothic rock band from london. The band is fronted by vocalist KatieJane Garside and guitarist Crispin Gray, who had previously collaborated in the short-lived band Daisy Chainsaw.
and they have a brilliant version of the Dolly Parton classic, Jolene. Unfortunately, the copy on is only thirty seconds long, so you don't get past the intro, but it's worth finding a copy. Medicine Jar is really strong as well.


1 - at the recent Bloggers4Labour meeting, Tom Watson mentioned it and I had a look. Sorry, but I really wanted to name drop.
