Downloadable: Simon Joyner

Not the one off the US cop show.

If you listened to Peel much during the, ooh, last decade or so of his career, you'll at the very least have heard the name of Simon Joyner - indeed, you might even have heard the show where Peel played a Joyner record all the way through.

If you haven't heard of Joyner, and wondered if there's a good place to start with his burned-heart Americana, there's some good news for you: Joyner has put together what we could call a Greatest Hits, or a best of, but what we'll settle on as a sampler.

The collection is Out into the Snow, and is already pre-orderable from the Team Love website. Although confusingly at three different prices.

If you want to get to know him without investing up front, try these downloads: Roll On and title track Out In The Snow. Don't worry, they're legal; Feargal won't be peering through your window.
