Protocol were dropped by Polydor in 2006 and split up not too long afterwards, with their debut album never released.

Alternative pop-country goddess Lissie is the finest singer-songwriter of this millennium. Nobody since the year 2000 has been so consistently brilliant. There's still time for her to make it big. It could still happen. The morons can still realise how wrong they have been about her.

But that's precisely the problem - white soul artists are re-hashing a cod version of a cod version of 60s gospel. The Black Church is still churning out innovative and technically brilliant musicians in droves, but that isn't filtering through to the mainstream.

I thought it would be nice to have a collection of our music for anyone needing cheering up. What do you lads suggest? Any reason why?

Across the Universe is my helpful reminder that whatever is bothering me doesn't really matter and I shouldn't let it. The song has actually helped me deliver projects before just by putting me into the right frame of mind for it and was a companion during a time when nothing was going right for me. The film is also a favourite with a similar message about life.

On February 12, 1983 the ship Marine Electric was carrying a load of coal from Norfolk, Virginia to a power station in Somerset, Massachusetts. The worst storm in forty years blew up that night and the ship sank at about four o'clock in the morning on February 13. The ship's chief mate, 59-year-old Robert M. "Bob" Cusick, was trapped under the deckhouse as the ship went down. His snorkeling experience helped him avoid panic and swim to the surface, but he had to spend the night alone, up to his neck in water, clinging to a partially deflated lifeboat, and in water barely above freezing and air much colder. Huge waves washed over him, and each time he was not sure that he would ever reach the surface again to breathe. Battling hypothermia, he was tempted to allow himself to fall unconscious and let go of the lifeboat. Just then he remembered the concluding stanzas of "The Mary Ellen Carter".

He started to sing it and soon was alternately shouting out "Rise again, rise again" and holding his breath as the waves washed over him. At seven o'clock that morning a Coast Guard helicopter spotted him and pulled him to safety. Only three men of the thirty-three who had been aboard survived the wreck. After his ordeal, Cusick wrote a letter to Stan Rogers telling him what had happened and how the song helped save his life. In response, Cusick was invited to attend what turned out to be the second-to-last concert Rogers ever performed. Cusick told his story in the documentary about Rogers, One Warm Line.

12736 music appreciation
When you discover great new music that you really enjoy, do you listen to it constantly or do you try to listen to it sparingly over a long period so you don't grow tired of it?

I never gave much thought to music listening strategies, but around this time last year I discovered Khruangbin and I spent so much time listening to them from March to September that I kind of immunised my brain from enjoying the music. I'm thinking I should change my ways and spread out my listening so I can savour music for longer; maybe listen to a new album with each new day of the week instead of listening to the same album every day.

On a somewhat related note, how do people enjoy streaming services? I tried spotify but I found myself getting really annoyed at how many crap tracks I had to skip. Is this normal or should I learn to be more open and less finicky when it comes to music?

Where do people actually buy music these days? If you're not a streaming cunt or a deviant vinylphile where can you actually pick up an honest to god CD to keep and rip from forever that isn't owned by Jeff Bezos? There's Bandcamp but that doesn't seem to have everything yet.

8707 Cover songs
The Pet Shop Boys' Always On My Mind has been voted the top cover version of all time in a BBC Music vote.

The song, written by John Christopher, Mark James and Wayne Carson, was first made famous by Brenda Lee and Elvis Presley in 1972.

Johnny Cash's cover of Nine Inch Nails' Hurt came in second place, followed by The Stranglers' version of Dionne Warwick's Walk On By. Jimi Hendrix's take on Bob Dylan's All Along The Watchtower came fourth. Jeff Buckley's cover of Leonard Cohen's classic Hallelujah completed the top five.


Not keen on that version of Walk On By but I like the rest. I reckon I'd have to have a good think about my favourite covers and I'm sure I'd still forget some.

Is vinyl worth getting into? I feel like instant streaming/downloading of whatever music you like has cheapened music in a sense, and relegates it to a kind of background noise you listen to while you do something else. I miss the days when I'd sit in front of the stereo and do nothing but listen to a cassette tape or a CD, so on a psychological level I can already see the benefit of vinyl.

On an audiophile level, I once listened to an interview with Steve Vai where he said that vinyl genuinely sounds better for older music that was recorded with analogue tech and has analogue masters, but that it's a totally pointless medium for digital masters. Is this really the case?

I'm not saying there's anything inherently wrong with using algorithms to discover stuff, but I want to highlight how important it is to be aware that algorithms aren't perfect, or even necessarily better than browsing a curated selection like a music shop, or even discovering stuff through local scenes.

No library of music is perfect, and algorithms are designed with specific purposes in mind. I think people should use it with awareness of it's limitations.

I have a bunch of old/rare/signed/first edition/out of print etc books at my mum's place, and a shoe box full of books I just can't be without that I lug around with me whenever I move house/city/country/continent. Other than that if I can't get it for my Kindle I either don't bother or I buy it with the express idea that I'll read it, take a bunch of notes on it, and probably give it away.

Why is it so difficut to find people to casually jam with? I checked all my local musician listings on facebook and gumtree, and they're full of people with established bands or pretentious types who think they'll make it big. In a city of 8 million people, it seems that there is literally no one else who just wants to get drunk or drugged up and jam out like I want to do.

Turns out this advice was spot on. Had a couple of jam sessions. One good, one not so good (ended up getting too drunk with the keyboard player and banned from the rehearsal space). In any case it's good to break out of being a bedroom guitarist.

Who knew that things can happen if you actually try make them happen?
