Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life…

It’s the 25th anniversary of the release of Prince’s Purple Rain album this week — and to mark the occasion, we have a Kiosk exclusive: brilliant Irish artists Joe Chester and Nick Kelly (ex Fat Lady Sings) have recorded their own versions of tracks from Purple Rain just for the Kiosk — and we’ll be premiering them on The Kiosk this Saturday. Frustratingly, it’s damn near impossible to get a Prince YouTube video with music on it — thanks to restrictions from Warner Bros, but to be honest, it’s almost as much fun watching When Doves Cry from Purple Rain without the music. Prince rising half-naked from a bathtub — yowsers, dig, if you will, the picture…

PS Personally, I dunno about you guys, but though I do love Purple Rain, Prince’s Sign o’ the Times is my favourite album from him. The Cross, the title track, Starfish and Coffee, Strange Relationship — genius, absolute genius…
