Royal Wedding Fever Part 1



One of the great music mags, with a usually spiffing covermount (odd themes sometimes a tad naff oh well) also I think the inspiration was the mighty LAMBCHOP.

I have found some tiptop stuff over the years thank to Allen Jones and the rest of the team, so lets share some.

Rickie Lee Jones wrote Chuck E`s In Love about him
Tom Waits name checked him

Chuck E Wiess Sonny Could Lick All Those Cats

So how about some Van Dyke Parks Love Is The Answer

And the late great Warren Zevon  I Was In The House When The House Burned Down
 


These two oiks are still uncut, but hell they know how to strut thier funky stuff.

 And dear reader to finish for tonight
