On the Juke-Box Today

I tried Hot Rats many moons ago. I shall re-listen to it … & these others but he is a blind spot to me. Just as are King Crimson (the utterly marvellous ‘Court of the Crimson King’ … God bless it … apart).

Nor can I ever EVER ‘get’ Jeff Beck. I have spent days of my life trying to persuade myself but it never happens.

But I WILL give it another go. Honest.

wunderschön


#123

We definitely need a bit more good old-fashioned romance…


#124

you sure about that? nah… < gus grins despite general Gusliness >

This popped up at some ungodly hour recently (which is appropriate enough, it being a Nocturnal and all). Can’t find a full Bream version, sadly. But, enjoy

And here is JB

One for Armers:


So, who wants to help ... to take refuge in the Cellar?

Excellent Joe. Thank you.

A vg friend from Uni was the legal manager for Fun Boy Three and Bananarama. He called me once at some ungodly hour with the immortal line of “you’ll never guess where I am !”

Which, of course, I couldn’t.

He was on an infeasibly high floor of some Manhatten hotel on a joint tour with the 2 groups and which point they all bellowed “Hi Martin !!!”. He then insisted I jumped a plane that very day and join them … followed by various of them coming to the phone imploring me.

It was a very odd, but delightful, experience & I suspect drink and chemicals were involved.

Feral Techie used to run the web sites for S Club 7 and Westlife. Not quite the same thing…


#129

The Biog by Barry Miles is good. I might re-read it or try this one … book


#130

Oooh I dunno. Rachel Stevens would have got my attention.


#131

Zappa.

I tried … again. But sorry. Does nothing for me. At all.

Cleary it’s me missing out, but it comes over as very competent, risqué, musical theatre. Someone being deliberately clever & showing off.

Be gentle with me.


#132

Why, what makes you think we are going to make weasels rip your flesh?


#133

[sound of reversing pantechnicon]

'Ere, guv, got a load of rabid flesh-ripping weasels 'ere, where d’you want 'em?

And to stay on-topic:


#134

Well … SOME of you are going to be Catholuc Girls, aren’t you !!


#135

That is reasonably horrible.


#136

Continuing the theme of ‘reasonably horrible’ (some might say) and prompted by Armers’ mention elsethread of Mulllingar it is my duty and privilege to provide this:


#137

For a horrible moment, I thought you were going to inflict Joe Dolan on us


#138

No one’s upset me to that extent. Yet.


#139

Some times I worry more than I do at other times.


#140

Astonishing. Thank you.

I was wondering where Mullingar came into it.
