Just heard My Back Pages by The Byrds on 6Music. What a good record....I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now.

that song really touches me

Actually, this should be a better link.

Burmese death metal, recorded on a wax cylinder. Yes, that's what I said.

Listened to a few tracks already, thanks to AutoRip, and I may have made a mistake. It sounds like a different (and much worse) band from the inventive and mighty sounds of 'In a Town called Addis'. It's all a bit whiney and unimaginative. Chalk it up to experience...

This isn't my favourite Paul Kelly song, but the lyrics may may be apposite as a theme tune for certain threads on the main forum.

 

You're Still Picking The Same Sore

 

I have known you both now it seems for so long
I can't get you together so I've written you a song
Take it as you please with a frown or with a smile
Or think about it for a while
You're still fighting an old, old war
You just keep on picking the same sore

First I hear one story like it's the cold hard facts
Then I hear the other say 'No, it was never like that'
One day I'm a doctor, the next day I'm a guide
And you 'both want me to take sides
You're still fighting a cold, cold war
And you just keep on picking the same sore

No matter what I do I know that I can't win
He says 'What'd she say?' then she says 'What'd you hear from him?'
And neither one of you will ever take the blame
You both should be ashamed
When you first met you were just like kids in a candy store
Now you both keep picking the same sore

I think I'll get together all your friends and me
And we'll buy a boat and send you off to sea
And you can sail that ship to a far off distant shore
And keep on fighting evermore
And there'll be no one there for you to bore
And you can both keep picking the same sore.

They may not have been a real band, but this is a brilliantly faked period piece, from the movie of the same name.

Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers have a new album out, 'Hypnotic Eye', which I have ordered and am currently listening to on Spotify. I'm enjoying it so far.

John Kongos' four sons and their imaginatively-named band, Kongos. Even sounds a bit like their Dad.

To Flashback Records (Islington branch) for the first time. Not a bad place at all.

 

  • Doll by Doll - Gypsy Blood
  • ABC - The Lexicon of Love
  • Lamont Dozier - Love and Beauty (180g pressing)
  • Klaatu - Endangered Species
  • The Persuasions - A Cappella
  • Dion DiMucci - You're not alone

I would have taken a look at the new vinyl, but there were a few people already browsing and I decided to pay up and head home.

No.427 in the list of bands you thought weren't around any more... I was flicking through the vinyl the other day and found my 12" singles of 'IronMasters' and 'Green Fields of France'.

I've been a fan of TMTCH since I saw the video of The Colours on The Chart Show waaaay back when. Heard once, immediate impact. Now that's a song!



They keep splitting up, then getting back together and always kept missing their opportunity for a big breakthrough due to various inter-band mishaps and record company misjudgements.

This new album is to celebrate their 30th anniversary, and it is very, very good. Better than I anticipated, tbh. Pledge Music is great for bands like this, with a small but enthusiastic following, as they can still put new music out and make something back without needing a record company.

I've seen them live twice in the past year and though Cush's voice verges on Dalek on the high notes these days (which the album production smooths over quite well), Swill is still in fine voice. They're still a great night out with a rousing back catalogue; Ironmasters, Green Fields of France, The Colours, The Ghosts of Cable Street (my fave track of theirs), Scarlet Ribbons, Shirt of Blue, Bounty Hunter, Smugglers, Rosettes... I could go on!! :)
