Dr Feelgood - She Does it Right.

Great clip I just came across recorded live in Finland. Cameraman seems to have something against Wilko and I have never seen Lee's jacket looking that white!!

Rock and Roll as it should be played!!!

Getting rave reviews apparently.

I always liked that two drummer thing they had going on.

It was great, really good. Played mostly older stuff from before he was in the charts but even the pop hits sounded good. Had the 2 drummers who were incredibly in sync and the band were tight as. You can tell he is still not quite 100% and is still a little nervous. As for that Georgina Bailey (Sachs?) on backing vocals....wow, just scandalous. (Think Tom & Jerry style eyeballs when he sees the girl cat...yoinks)

Put it this way, I'd go again without a doubt: and I was by no means their biggest fan beforehand. A brilliant night out.

In the 80s I worked for the Performing Right Society. Adam Ant (Stuart Goddard) visited our Head Office regularly. He would arrive unannounced never expecting any red carpet treatment. Always friendly and unassuming he would never leave without making time to pop in to all the different admin offices, have a chat and a laugh, sign records etc. No other artist did this and we all respected him greatly.


In the blink of an eye it could all be taken away.  Be grateful always.

A couple of Joe Camilleri (The Black Sorrows) side projects, both up to his usual excellent standards:

Bakelite Radio - Vol.2

The Revelators - Adventures of the Amazing Revelators

space heater-the reverend horton heat

You can't beat a bit of the rev. I do wish they'd get their backsides to the UK a bit more often though.

Just had a quick binge of rowdy Aussie stuff - random play of the following:

  • AC/DC: most of 'Back in Black'
  • The Angels - Night Attack, Nothing to win, Standing over you, Watch the Red
  • Rose Tattoo - Manzil Madness, Suicide City, Assault and Battery, Chinese Dunkirk

That'll wake you up! :D

Bit more Aussie noise. Midnight Oil - Place Without A Postcard. Worth a listen alone for the brilliant Basement Flat.

On an Antipodean kick: The Triffids - Born Sandy Devotional (from the recent series of re-mastered, expanded, lavishly-packaged but dirt cheap Triffids reissues).

Oh, and 'Deck the Stills' by Barenaked Ladies - basically an a cappella rendition of 'Deck the Halls' but with all the lyrics replaced by repetitions of "Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young". Touching upon genius! :D

My brother went to the Sheffield show last Thursday. That was the word he used.

Sex Pistols & Thin Lizzy having a bit of a laugh. Wish Phil Lynott was still around. :sad:

In my long gig-going career I've never seen a better front man.

On BBC iPlayer at the moment they have TOTP from 23/12/1976. Phil and the boys are on doing 'Don't Believe A Word'. As an added bonus they're on first so you don't have to bother with all the other shoite.

I saw it. Didn't stop me from watching the rest of it though. :D it had that old soft reggae number 'side-show' by Barry Biggs. No offence but old Baz had clearly helped himself to the pies.

Saw Thin Lizzy on the Renegades tour at the Queens Hall in Leeds and Phil is way up there in the best front men ever
