Music 2013 – Music in My Head!

Posted by

Thank you, BBC Radio 4 for leaving me humming (badly, out-of-tune) the wonderfully evocative “When an Old Cricketer Leaves the Crease” by Roy Harper. It’s odd, isn’t it, how you can not hear something for months, or in this case years, and suddenly in the space of two week’s I’ve heard it twice, once in connection with something in the Guardian about cricket-related music, and now this morning as background to a piece about the state of Australian cricket right now, which I gather is not of the best.

And now I cannot get it out of my head. Time to dig out the vinyl (yes, we do still have a large quantity of music that is only on vinyl in our house – we’re old, get used to it!) and see if the record player actually still works I think…



    1. It is, isn’t it? I like Roy Harper a lot… He’s mad as a box of frogs, but he can certainly evoke a spirit of “Englishness” (in a good way) like few other writers.
