Dad rock

If the audio stops playing, press stop and allow time for the stream to load.
Often when the family Johns returns to the old country, I ask my dad to get me some records from my collection in storage. And so this week's playlist was selected by my dad at random when we back last week. He picked a pretty varied and occasionally esoteric collection, including: pioneering electronic composer Bruce Haack, which I was given and never played; Glaswegian electro-punkers The Magnificents, which they gave me and I never played; and Loop spin-off, The Hair and Skin Trading Co., which I played once and didn't like. Can't say I do now, but it's on the list. And he honestly picked Stereolab at random too. So I picked one of my favourite bass performances.
