Do I get points for originality on this one?
A bit of a Clash session
Good video of This England
And now The Specials.
And I know it's from a different album but I love this one
Today is weird video day, so...
And just because Ofra Haza's voice does something to me...
I love Temple of Love. Brings back so many memories from my clubbing days.
I saw the Sisters play "live" in 2019. They were quite crap, although it was good hearing that played live again!
When we were 18 or so, my mate had their logo painted on the bonnet of his white Triumph Dolomite.
Look what you made me do Steve, although I guess the band is not quite your thing, just that vocalist.
Oh I wouldn't say that, not totally, they managed a few good tracks, including the previously mentioned and...
My mate, who I mentioned with the Dolomite, followed the band around a lot. I leant him my camera, a 35mm Cosina IIRC. He had loads of tour photo's including backstage shots. I think he even ended up on the tour bus. Relatively recently I found some of them amongst my photos (I think I must have developed them for him). Might see if I can dig them out (unless I gave them to him).
Some foreign stuff..
Not quite my cup of tea, but my brother (left winter) is streaming live on youtube at the moment. It was supposed to be in Berlin, as part of a festival, but Covid stopped that.
Just Piaf Padam, padam.
It says: "Remember your loves
Remember cos it's your turn
There's no reason why you shouldn't cry
Encumbered with your memories
"And me, I see again those who remain
My 20 years make the drum beat
I see the succession of gestures flash by
All the comedy of love
To this tune which just keeps playing
Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine
I saw them in a tiny club in Chelmsford, the stage was kerb high and I was almost nose to nose with the singer, quite an unnerving and awkward gig to say the least. Although they ripped through the set and ignored my nose completely.
Triumph dolomite, my very first car! Sadly no sisters of mercy paintwork though.
Ive got a feeling I've seen sisters of mercy live, but it's all a bit of a haze from those days
XTC. Respectable street
Just because this thread is here, may I put in a tip for this set by Marc Ribot's Ceramic Dog on KEXP/Seattle:
If you like that, then their "lockdown" album,'What I Did On My Long Vacation' is worth hearing (esp. 'Beer' and 'Hippies Are Not Nice Anymore') which you should really buy, but is up on yootoob anyway:
Allegedly produced by Joe Meek, and influenced the Beatles' Lady Madonna. I wonder what the lovely Samantha had to say about that?
Apparently she had a couple of points of interest that made people rise to the occasion.
A couple of 'super-groups'...
A couple of Radiohead albums today
And OK Computer
Another of my claims to fame. I stopped some of this band when they were just starting out, riding their bikes in the town at night.
