Marc's new album, Brisk & Breezy, sees him revisit the “jaunty acoustipop” of his former band, Marc Block and the Breezes, overdubbing his own voice, guitar, bouzouki, harmonicas and percussion, with further backing vocals by Rachel Delicata and double bass by Martin Bentley. It’s an exuberant collection of mostly original songs, including new recordings of some of Marc’s old favourites from his younger days.
I've sung this slightly skewed version for many years, the way I once imagined Michelle Shocked might do it, and I now confuse myself by also playing it with the “correct” chord sequence, in two different keys on two different instruments.
