BAH!

A Message From Santa Claus

 
Popped into the local alehouse for a stiffener before I started my duties to bring cheer to the poor and needy, but what I beheld shocked me to the core....

It was full of knotted scarfed middle class twats with their snotty nosed Tabithas and Thoms saying "I`ll take three hot chocolates and two mulled wines " while playing with their sodding smart phones and then sitting infront of the real log  fire so no one else can see or feel it.

And then they insist " A Fairy Tale Of New York" is the BEST Christmas song ever;

Wankers

.Ho! Ho! Ho! 

Saint Nicholas 




As I told you before the Best Chistmas song is

Belshazzar`s Feast  Hampshire Mummers Song

Happy Christmas  Jules

Jules

*Black Friday is also known as Spew Friday, Vomit Friday even F*ckwit Friday plus a few more; if like myself you keep the wolf from the door by selling booze  to festive folk.

Bah!

TAKE A POWDER

Sir Thomas Beecham famously once said to a women in the cello section




"You have between your legs the most sensitive instrument known to man, and all you can do is to sit there and scratch it."

A tad rude it has to be said, but still funny ( well if your a sad celibate old git with no social graces like me ) ...where was I? Oh yes Nick Drake of course. 

Nick Drake Cello Song

The Books & Jose Gonzales Cello Song

The Walkabouts Cello Song



The first time I had ever knowingly heard a Nick Drake song was from a cover mount CD on an issue of UNCUT god knows how long ago.

Hell how good is this now   musically and lyrically.

  

One Of These Things First


I could have been a sailor
Could have been a cook
A real live lover
Could have been a book
I could have been a signpost
Could have been a clock
As simple as a kettle
Steady as a rock
I could be
Here and now
I would be, I should be
But how?
I could have been
One of these things first
I could have been
One of these things first
I could have been your pillar
Could have been your door
I could have stayed beside you
Could have stayed for more
I could have been your statue
Could have been your friend
A whole long lifetime
Could have been the end
I could be
Yours so true
I would be
I should be
Through and through
I could have been
One of these things first
I could have been
One of these things first
I could have been a whistle
Could have been a flute
A real live giver
Could have been a boot
I could have been a signpost
Could have been a clock
As simple as a kettle
Steady as a rock
I could be
Even here
I would be, I should be
So near
I could have been
One of these things first
I could have been
One of these things first

Nick Drake One Of These Things First

Er... thats it

Goodnight and Goodluck

Love Jules

Must Keep Up With The Obituaries

George Martin R.I.P.




1963 was a very important historical milestone for many reasons..

J F Kennedy  assassination

Martin Luther Kings "I have a dream" 

and of course

The Beatles

The Dream Academy Life In A Northern Town

Jesse Winchester Ghosts

New Order 1963



A small demonstration of how important Martin was


The source of all information ......

Lennon wanted the track to have a "carnival atmosphere", and told producer George Martin that he wanted "to smell the sawdust on the floor." In the middle eight bars, multiple recordings of fairground organs and calliope music were spliced together to attempt to produce this request. In a 1968 interview, Martin recalled that he achieved "this by playing the Hammond organ myself and speeding it up." After a great deal of unsuccessful experimentation, Martin instructed recording engineer Geoff Emerick to chop the tape into pieces with scissors, throw them up in the air, and re-assemble them at random.



Oh yes!  he was ahead of  Eno by a  country mile

Mind you......



Love Jules
