Ian Dury - The Passing Show

I actually find this one of the most accurate views of life there is. He's a bit frail at this point, mind you (and it doesn't seem very loud...)

Geburt Einer Nation -Laibach.

If you think you recognize the tune, you're right. Yes, it is a cover version. If you're disturbed by it...well, that's probably the intention.

Stanmore - was that a "no Beefheart" as in "I shall not allow Beefheart" or was that a cry for some, because I have some lurking. It was going up today, but I'm a bit cross with the world.

Even though it's probably aganst the rules, because I won't be online again this weekend, and there's a really nice symmetry in posting it so soon after the above, may I present those eccentric sound experimentalists with a fox hunting proponent lead singer

It's a request for no Beefheart - but not an order. I've always wanted to like the man, and to see why he's thought of as Dr Genius of Geniushood, and if someone can actually show me the correct place to start (clue - not Trout Mask Replica) then I'd be grateful. Zappa, of course, is Dr Genius of Geniushood.

I'm off to work. If I allow this sort of thing there will be anarchy. Anarchy, I tells ya. Though if by the time I get back you have made a single video including both pieces that blend effortlessly into each other and put it on the internet, that I will allow.

Brilliant song- saw them live earlier this year as well, and they were great entertainment. They were following the latest fad of playing an entire album across one live gid, but being Sparks they had to put a Mael twist on it, so they played, in order, across consecutive nights, all 21 of their albums!

I only saw one, as I no longer live in London, but I wish I'd seen more.

And I do a mean Ron Mael (or is it Russell) impersonation when drunk (mainly by sticking a false Hitler moustache on and glaring off into the distance).

BTW, shouldn't this thread now be closed, as surely it's reached Godwin's Law! Wink

It's a lovely old community singing favourite, isn't it?

I had the honour of looking after Huw Lloyd Langton once. Actually, his manager found six of us to take care of him. Huw, one of Hawkwind's guitarists, was touring with the Lloyd Langton Group (really, really good too), and his manager didn't want him wandering off and getting drunk.
"Don't let him near a bar" said the manager, rushing off.
There was about thirty seconds silence.
"Pub" said Huw.

And so we went.

Later on, we wheeled him back in time to play the gig - which was a blinder - and apologise to his manager, who had been driven frantic in the meantime.

Brilliant sad version of an originally average Springsteen track. Admittedly he spent a whole decade beforehand practicing with songs about death, but never mind.

Time for a bit of Eurovision I think!! This is actually my all-time favourite song from the ESC. 1998, NIA, Birmingham. The last year there was a live Orchestra. The opening performance. A stunning ballad sung by an impish girl with an incredible voice. If it had a more favourable draw IMO it would have won - as it was, it came fifth. From Croatia I give you:

Danijela - Neka Me Ne Svane.

It surprises me we don't have a version of the theme here somewhere.

You know which theme.

The Doctor Who Theme

By Orbital, in this case, and I think they might be at Glasto. Deliah loved Orbital, and...Murray? This is why you don't need an orchestra.
