Nothing on the telly


Cracking review in the latest UNCUT

Television Marquee Moon

Hey! Ho! Lets Go!

Random Access Memories 

Part 2

Some nice tunes all connected by a theme.

Answers on a postcard please

Trumpton Chime And Clock Theme

Some dirty old sodomite hanging around with a punk band, what's not to like.

The Stranglers Old Codger

Deb Talen & Steve Tannen are The Weepies, Oh yes they are married and as Tannen said this is how the name...

...came about from a few different sources, but one was, you know, those sort of old movies that were called weepies, where you could basically be guaranteed that if you needed a good cry, you could go and see one of these and bring your hanky and have a good time. And we want to be able to provide that for people. We want to make music that touches them and moves them in that way, the place where tears come from, for joy and for sorrow.

The Weepies I Was Made For Sunny Days

So many things to hate ... fuck jealous.. they are really good.

XTC River Of Orchids

From an UNCUT CD years ago.

"..And In The Street There Are Children Singing.."

Oh yes Its Sparks

Sparks Beat The Clock

No idea what this song is truly about but the use of the phrase "The Wife" gives it a great creepy edge.

Ween Your Party

The connection between all the above tunes is...

Nothing, only some stuff I like, there is no answer, Its just that.

Love Will Tear Us Apart


Beheading seems all the rage at the moment, a while back the sight of a severed head would be a bit of a surprise but nowadays you have to take care not to trip over one on the way back from the chippy. I suppose like all fads ( Hula Hoops, Clackers and Voting UKIP ) it will fade away, not before a bit of work is done on some of the Windsors though.

As for the Jocks....well I ask you....

Decapitating the UK!

You selfish bastards pissing off and leaving us with Cameron, Clegg and Miliband.

OK I see your point but you'll be left with Salmond.

And as for music...

Andy Stewart
Sheena Easton
Rod Stewart
The entire Song By Toad  back catalogue
 and of course
All The Vinyl Villains Scottish Singles

Er.......Thats It

Apart from some other stuff

Jackie Leven  Elegy For Johnny Cash

Finlay MacDonald and lots of other bods  Arthur Bignold

Salsa Celtica Cumbia Celtica

Dochas (with Julie Fowlis) Cha d`Fhuair Mi`n Cadal

 Always Plan Ahead 

Aw Hell !    please don't go, get it out of your system,  just lop off the head of a random royal, a few Tories and Farage and call it a day.

Be Seeing You
