Music: The Black Cab Sessions

I can’t remember if I’ve written about this before, since it’s not exactly new — I think it’s up to episode 58 or so now — but one of my favourite Web-based music experiences has to be the Black Cab Sessions. The format is dead simple: get a musician into the back seat of an old black British taxi-cab and have them play a song as the cab drives around London, while someone films it with a handheld video camera (must get kind of cramped). I’ve embedded a sample of the cab sessions: Badly Drawn Boy otherwise known as Damon Gough, playing Born in the UK.
