We've been eagerly awaiting William Shatner's new single/double/triple album Seeking Major Tom, consisting of 20 tracks (mostly cover versions), for a few months now. A tantalising track-listing appeared on William Shatner's website back in April 2011 and more recently footage emerged of the great man recording his version of Iron Man in the studio. Well now we finally have our hands on a copy of this modern masterpiece and well worth the wait it was too. As this is such an auspicious occasion we decided it would be only fitting to feature the album fairly extensively on the show this week and so for that reason we have chosen three of our favourite tracks.
However, it's not all Shatner as we do also have a few tracks acquired by DJ Bongoboy on a recent excursion to the big smoke, including a new Lollywood compilation from Finders Keepers, some fictitious German radiophonics and some equally fictitious French library music. There's also a delightful new (and free!) EP by one of our favourite contemporary artistes, the Monroeville Music Center.
