I was as surprised as anyone when Rob Da Bank became Radio 1's equivalent of a John Peel replacement, but he's sponsored some fairly good Peel Session type recordings, and one in particular was TV on the Radio, who did hits like Tonight and Wolf Like Me. Wolf Like Me benefited the most from a live band makeover, being a rock type song to begin with.
His Rob Da Bank & Friends show is starting again on the 15th of October on Radio 1, so keep your ears peeled, there's bound to be a gem or two unearthed during the course of the series.
As for TVOTR news ... there is none. Not a single, solitary bit of new news.
Anyway, have Wolf Like Me - TV On The Radio ... it's raucous.
