Arising from slumber, the South African new-wave trio, The Medicine Dolls reminded themselves they had a new three track single to live launch within a couple of hours of this article being written on the 24th.
The Medicine Dolls
Although this doesn’t appear until almost a week later, due to publishing schedules, sorry one and all – From the Sick Like Paradise single – L.
As those who have been here since the earliest foundations will recall when I introduced the site on the original URL last decade with the first post – back in the late ’70s when I first performed in a band – we got together for the first time for a practice and four hours later were playing on stage in South London – so you will perhaps understand why I particularly enjoy The Medicine Dolls – if only for their own carefree enjoyment of playing music with little fanfare or preamble.

Not without lawsuits over a recording contract with a label in Nigeria – resulting in various representations both in Nigerian and USA Courts – Runtown has once again been able to take ownership of his music and is now able to both tour and release new material.
The first track with his new found freedom – is Mad Over You – not a scornful response, rather a love song.
