As we seem to be heading back to the early 80s...

Not my favourite song by ver 'Works, but anything involving Ian McNabb is touched by the hand of genius, IMO.

Anybody have a copy of "Dedicated" by Alexei Sayle, mid 80s. It was the B-side of "Didn't you kill my brother?"

I was on Radcliffe and Maconie's Chain again yesterday, choosing You've lost that loving feeling.  

 

Sadly not this version (an old forum favourite)

Give this a try - I reckon it ain't bad at all.

I'm a regular listener, but I'm afraid I missed Monday. :(

This is very catchy and hard to shift once it gets in your head:

 

 

Their album, Highest Point in Cliff Town, was album of the day yesterday on BBC 6 Music.

A precursor of a much more famous TV sketch.

Just taken delivery of Squeeze's new studio album, the first one since the late 80s.

 

I love it but then I'm a massive fan.

 

I think they are vastly underrated and are great live. I've seen them in full band format, as a 2-piece with just Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook and also solo.

The songs on the new album were written for the BBC comedy 'Cradle to Grave', hence the album name.

 

I've only heard the title track, which I do like.

 

The TV series also has Peter Kay attempting a Sarf Landan accent. Well, bless him for trying, but...

Difford and Tilbrook were the Lennon and McCartney of the 80's

Just come back from my Hols, fell in love again with Dark Side Of The Moon, played it from start to finish on repeat for much of it

There's a bit of Ray Davies / Kinks in there as well. Glenn Tilbrook's solo shows are fantastic and he often performs in very small venues. I saw him in a 100 person venue in Sheffield and it was one of the best gigs I've seen.

 

They actually wrote Cradle to the Grave and some of the other tracks in 2012 and mentioned the Danny Baker project back then. I don't know if the delay in actually completing it was a consequence of Baker's illness.
