The Monolith Cocktail Social 50th Edition Special: Joni Mitchell, Anthony Moore, The Flock, 79.5, The Reverbs…

Playlist/Dominic Valvona

We’ve reached a milestone: the 50th edition of our imaginary cross-genre and cross-generational spanning radio show, the Monolith Cocktail Social.

That’s more than 3000 tracks of brilliance, the weird, the obscure and the cool shit; a series that started way back in 2013 as a way of creating the most eclectic of soundtracks. So as “inside” becomes the new “outside” in these pandemic times, relax and indulge in over three hours of everything you can suffix with the “Afro” tag, post-punk, desert blues, psychedelic, folk, soul, troubadours a plenty, Krautrock, dance, avant-garde and more. Even boomer doyen Joni Mitchell drops in with something new! What’s not to like.

Hi, my name is Dominic Valvona and I’m the Founder of the music/culture blog For the last ten years I’ve featured and supported music, musicians and labels we love across genres from around the world that we think you’ll want to know about. No content on the site is paid for or sponsored and we only feature artists we have genuine respect for /love. If you enjoy our reviews (and we often write long, thoughtful ones), found a new artist you admire or if we have featured you or artists you represent and would like to buy us a coffee at to say cheers for spreading the word, then that would be much appreciated.

    Hi – thanks for playing my “Night Rider” – it is much appreciated. I am wondering if you are aware that I have released two other cd’s since “Attic Demonstration” (2009 – “American Dirt” and 2011 – “Ambulance Driver”) which are much better produced than “A. Demo” but still contain great songs. If you are interested in copies, please send me a mailing address and I will get them out to you. Again, thanks for the play – be well and stay safe.

      Wow..thank you so much Kenneth. So great to hear from you. The Playlist is kind of my excuse to spread great underrated or obscure and just brilliant music that I’ve picked up over the decades. A Demo sounds great to these ears whatever the quality. But would really love it if you were happy to send us the other two – and yes I was aware of them, but somehow just loved Night Rider. You can send to: Flat 3, 1 Highburgh Drive, Burnside, Glasgow, G73 3RR.
