Memory Band

is the folk supergroup founded by Stephen Cracknell in 2003 and which he’s reforming over and over again ever since. On the latest album he gathered people like singer Nancy Wallace, ex-Simiam member Simon Lord and Al Doyle from Hot Chip to act as if they all were a Fairport Conevenetion vs. Steeleye Span tribute band.

Which song do you listen to when...
you feel like 1967?
Basil Kirchin - Abstractions Of The Industrial North

Although it was recorded in 1966.

you take a bubble bath?
Jeff Alexander - Come Wander With Me

It's on the «Brown Bunny»-soundtrack and originally came from an episode of the Twilight Zone. It has a real ethereal mood, soothing and slightly disturbing at the same time. 

you relax on a beach?
John Martyn - Bless The Weather
you prepare a candle light dinner?
Claude Debussy - Nuages

Really cheesy. Thats a moment I wouldn't play music. Possibly «Les Nuages» at a push.

you go to a club?
Clipse
you run naked through a cornfield?
Kate Bush - Cloudbusting
you prepare for an important date?
Robert Wyatt - I'm A Believer
you are in a depressive mood?
Sandy Denny - By The Time It Gets Dark

Although I listen to it when I'm happy as well, its an amazingly uplifting record. 

you want to disturb your neighbours?
M.O.P. - Ante Up

Or some really mad jazz, most neighbours seem to hate jazz. 

you drive a car late at night?

I don't drive.

you jog?
Bill Conti - Gonna Fly Now (Theme From Rocky)

The main theme from «Rocky».

you are love sick?
Anne Briggs - Go Your Way

In fact anything by Anne Briggs.

you make love?

Nothing. I think that's really cheesy, in fact music would put me off.

you jump out of a plane with a parachute?
Shawn Phillips - Withered Roses
you sit in a plane?
The Soulful Strings - Burning Spear
you have to spend a night in a spooky hotel?
Tom Waits - Hang Down Your Head

Or anything from Raindogs.

you sit in the subway?
Four Tet - Slow Jam
you wake up?
Pharoah Sanders - Golden Lamp

I like a spiritual start to the day.
