The successor to the Another Late Night series, Late Night Tales continues the tradition of getting artists to choose and mix the music that has shaped their own sound. This time round, the team has collared the legendary N.O.W. a.k.a. George Evelyn. What follows are a series of funky, tasteful selections with hip-hop leanings, all adequately displaying N.O.W.’s eclectic tastes and influences. Included with each song is a narrative based on the original song lyrics. These narratives are written by Whitbread Award winner Patrick Neate and read by Brian Blessed. Of course it’s absolute garbage, but at least N.O.W. is on top form. Out Monday.
