“SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists & music people beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day. Today’s guest is a great guy and long term Velvet Sheep supporter whose been recently masquerading under the nom de plum DJ Need-A-Stack and gamely appeared at a London club night dedicated to “sophomore” (or second) albums with a Pavement cover band replaying “Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain”.

He also had the internet a-fluttering 18 months back by posting a pic of a Silver Jews practice and then said “only joking”. He’s a promoter of fantastic bands like Dolfish and Gloom Balloon, he’s a follower of the gee-gees and he had great second drummer hair. I first interviewed him circa “Crooked Rain” but have kept in touch with our old mucker ever since, it’s Pavement fan favourite and all round good egg Bob Nastanovich! Hurrah!

Bob contributed to the new Velvet Sheep incarnation a way back, choosing a new band tip for our “Sheep Dip Tip” feature…


…at the same time (some way back now), I got him to choose a “song for ewe” – so this was an obscure-ish tune he was enjoying back then…it’s a pleasing slice of tropicalia!

“On the vintage tip, I stumbled upon a Walter Wanderley slab in a Tampa thrift store and I’m happy I did. I’ve been digging this: Walter Wanderley “Taste of Sadness”

(TRACK 10)

CHEERS BOB!!! A HEARTFELT SALUTE TO EWE! sorry I missed you in London
