It’s Friday and it’s time to get this party started.
This tune came up on my iPod yesterday and, as usual when I hear it, I was struck by how life reaffirming it is. You want bongos? We got bongos. This is quite simply bongotastic…
Incredible Bongo Band - Bongolia
A few days ago I finished reading "The KLF: Chaos, Magic and the Band Who Burned a Million Pounds" by John Higgs which is brilliant and, somewhat inevitably, inspired listening to some music by The KLF. Here’s their most perfect pop moment (and a great video). When Jimmy Cauty, unhappy with the way this track was going, said to Bill Drummond, “This needs some Tammy Wynette”, well, the rest is history…
The KLF - Justified and Ancient (Stand By The JAMs)
You want another perfect pop moment. Buddy Rich and his daughter Cathy… What does the beat do?
Buddy Rich - The Beat Goes On
To finish a couple of songs that anyone coming down to Dreams Never End nightclub in Hove will get to groove to…
"The holiday we spent together, Lives with me now and forever…"
What is it about Barney’s lyrics that makes them so brilliant? Aligned to New Order’s music, they are perfection….
New Order - Mr Disco
And finally one of my favourite songs of all time and a punk classic.
You had yellow hair, did you see me?
The Mekons - Where Were You?
Wherever you are and whatever you’re doing, I hope you have an enjoyable weekend.
Keep on the good foot.
