Hollie Cook scores breakthrough hit
Singer Hollie Cook reaches the top of the NWB Hot 30 Tracks chart with her breakthrough hit "Postman." The song comes from her appropriately titled second album Twice on Mr Bongo Records. In the track she samples sound effects from a Halloween album you might have owned as a kid. It was a Disney LP called Chilling, Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House. By the way, Hollie happens to be the daughter of Sex Pistols drummer Peter Cook.
  The Budos Band drop new single
There's a brand new track by The Budos Band on NWB. "The Sticks" is the first single from the group's first album in four years, Burnt Offering. The record will be released October 21st on Daptone Records. Good sounds for welcoming trick-or-treaters this Halloween.
     
 
     
Smokin' video from Seun Kuti
