Absolutely. One of my top 3 Womack tracks I think along with:
Motown - listening to your mate on Soul Galore playing Gerri Granger. Kitchen dancing like a bastard!
Hi Speedy I was listing to Ash myself but as my fellow presenter Tudor was working I couldn't get back from Leicester (picking my mum up) in time to enable Ash to help me do the show. I didn't find out Tudor was working until I was almost in Leicester, otherwise I'd have left earlier.
Hopefully next week we'll be back on and possibly play this one.
I had a listen and it's not bad. Not a patch on the Beatles mind. I watched this a few months ago and it totally revitalised my appreciation for them:
With the best will in the world, I can't see anyone producing anything similar about The Damned.
Ah...but they did though ( well sort of!)
It's kind of the reverse of The Beatles story.
They were heralded & exalted to the heavens.
The Damned were given the opposite treatment. Derided, dismissed, & their achievements belittled & written out of history.
Ironic really that the B side of their first ever single was a cover version of a Beatles song.
Still...my late childhood & teens owed much to them. Fun was had in great abundance & the memories are priceless.
I bought myself the 'Don't You Wish That We Were Dead' DVD (the only way I could see it) as I've always loved The Damned.
Great stuff it is too - bit of a shame how R. Scabies is so despised by C. Sensible nowadays tho (let's play the 1st LP in it's entirety, but NOT 'Stab Your Back'...).
Brilliant. Sad. Funny.
Agreed. I guess the whole chaos & multiple fallings out is all part of the story & made them what they are. Maybe if you took all that away they'd just have faded away? Who knows. As for the Sensible/Scabies thing in particular...well I guess we all have a mate or two that we used to be close to but ended up despising. I know I have (**** off Dave) & I guess money ruins what it touches :-(
I went to see the film at the Electric Cinema in Brum when it came out a couple of years ago. Fabulous! I recommend going if you get the chance. Proper old school cinema experience. With the added bonus that if you pre-book you can have a sofa with a coffee table & they'll bring your drinks to you from the bar! Also, the bar has an Absinthe fountain!! First one I'd seen in years. A pretty memorable night out ensued.
Been a while since this found it's way onto the record deck. Carries with it the memory of a particular time,place & person. As all the best music should. It was great to be young
This year's X Factor winner?
