Well, that’s it from us for another week dear reader. We heard some sad news last night that Americana UK writer Gordon Sharpe, one of the stalwarts of the site in recent years, suffered a stroke earlier this week and is very poorly in hospital. You can browse all of Gordon’s passionate and informed writing for AUK here – from all of us at Americana UK, we send him all our best wishes for a speedy recovery and our love to his family.
Don’t forget to listen to our new podcast which launches today and is presented by AUK’s Emily Dongray – it’s your ears’ opportunity to catch up with all things AUK. Give your eyes a break, Jesus. We leave you this week with a track from the new Wilco album ‘Cruel Country’ (if you haven’t read our world-first review of the album yet, here it is) – as our review attests, the waiting is the cruellest part of the new record. Oh and finally, as a Liverpool based website, it’d be remiss of us not to wish our little team good luck tomorrow! Have a good one and take care.
