Six Nine Records, based in Newcastle, England are a small company specializing in funk and soul, releasing limited edition 7-inch vinyl 45s of independent artists from around the world. Their latest release is from the vastly experienced California singer, Tim Tucker.
Tucker delivers silky, smooth vocals over a super tight backing track that’s bound to get late night motors running. Written and produced by the American, this is his second release on Six Nine following, “Ain’t That a Groove Thang U&I”, earlier in 2018. That track also featured vocalist, Daniel Wiley, who has collaborated on many of Tim Tucker’s projects.
Here’s an excerpt from the new track, “Waterfall”.
The much anticipated new Queen movie, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, starring Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury opens November 2nd. The trailers have been great, here’s hoping the whole movie is as good.
To get in the mood I’m posting a Queen Alphabet – 26 songs in an A to Z format.

Today’s MCZ Earworm is a special treat – some new rockabilly from one of the most clever and prolific songwriters England has ever produced, the great Nick Lowe. This is the title cut from his new EP with his Yep Roc label mates and frequent touring partners Los Straitjackets, “Tokyo Bay/Crying Inside”.
The four-song EP features the two new Lowe originals of its title, plus covers of songs popularized by Dionne Warwick (“Heartbreaker”) and Cliff Richard (“Travellin’ Light”). Nick and Los Straitjackets will be playing several shows in the Northeast USA and Canada during June and July, so catch them live if you can.
