I do like say hello wave goodbye . When I went to the ivy about ten years ago Marc Almond was in there with a male friend. From memory the parsnip soup was nice but every thing else was a let down . Marc was eyeing me up, probably thought I was a star but couldn't place me. Grease after was awful too , John and Sandy nailed those roles. Sorry Olivia, tell it to me stud......gosh

Aggers, if you manage to find the cover Depeche mode did of route 66 give it a listen,


Pauline, I know it very well the said song. It had a sample of Behind the Wheel in it and Martin's Guitar riff was a bit good also. Not that he would ever beat Chuck Berry, but was a bit of a Rock style, very unlike DM at the time!

Went to a Simon and Garfunkel tribute act last night. These guys are very good and tour the world with their show. Everything they did was excellent and reminded me of so many of the lyrics I'd forgotten, so much of which is quite questioning and sometimes dark (Sound of Silence for example).

They did Bridge over troubled water and whilst it was an excellent version didn't quite do it for me. Came into work this morning and played the original on youtube which just sends shivers down my spine.

Not very often i have praise for the bbc but i have to give them a wee nod for this article below. It's hard to comprehend that something we take for granted led to some being arrested and beaten by the secret police.
I've only took a couple of bits from the article to whet the appetite. The full story is well boss.
Your humble poster is going to his mates 50th this afternoon so much drink will be consumed..........

"Rocking the Stasi
By Chris Bowlby

The rise of Beatlemania in the 1960s brought a scathing response from Walter Ulbricht, the leader of the German Democratic Republic (GDR).

"Do we really have to copy all the rubbish that comes from the West… with all the monotony of their 'Yeah, yeah, yeah,'" he sneered during one of his turgid speeches to the Communist Party faithful.

If there's one story that symbolises GDR paranoia about music - and the tragedy of being a young music fan there - it's the story of a Rolling Stones concert that never happened.

It all began in 1969 with a throwaway comment by a DJ on the radio station RIAS - based in West Berlin but much listened to on the other side of the Berlin Wall.

I met Eckart Mann, then a 16-year-old, at the same spot opposite the Springer building where he'd waited in 1969. He'd heard the rumour, and thought, "Stones, play here. Wow, wow, wow!"

In fact, the Stones never appeared, but the GDR authorities did. As the crowd moved towards the Brandenburg Gate the policed arrived, and Mann was beaten and arrested.

He was convicted of being an "anti-socialist element". In his files I discovered that the head of the Stasi, Erich Mielke, had taken a personal interest in his case. Mann was given two years in prison, then expelled to the West, away from his family.

A church also provided the venue for another extraordinary concert, when British music producer Mark Reeder managed to smuggle a West German punk band, Die Toten Hosen, across the Berlin Wall to play a concert.

"I told my friends, 'If I get caught I get thrown out of the country. If you get caught your lives will change because you'll be classed as enemies of the state,'" recalls Reeder. "They said, 'We don't care we'll do it anyway.'"

Campino, lead singer of Die Toten Hosen, remembers how the band disguised themselves to get through border controls between West and East Berlin. "We had to comb our hair, get proper clothes on."

He knew why the East German authorities would stop them if they recognised them. "Punk rock didn't officially exist in the East, they didn't want to spread the virus in any form."

Only around 25 could come to the secret concert in an East Berlin church. But "everyone in the room know this was something very special and maybe would never happen again".

He was very impressed, he says, with the way young East Germans created their own cultural space in spite of - or perhaps because of - all the regime's pressure.

"They had a certain kind of pride, a belief. They said, 'You in the West you've got the best clothing, the fashion, all those things. But we've got friendship and we help each other and we're not superficial,'" he says.

Their friendships "meant more because they had to pay a bigger price for everything that went wrong", as he puts it.

I take it you are familier with the New York Dolls mate? I just read the book below about bass player Killer Kane.
It goes up to the time the Dolls first visited the uk. Kane died no long after that was written. When they go to newcastle and get introduced to newcastle brown ale. Around 12 pints each then got told they were gigging. Billy Doll spewed first then one after another the rest followed suit. The audience thought it was part of the act lol.

All dead now apart from johannsen and sylvain. Billy doll died on that first visit aged 17. Anyway here they are on the old grey whistle test*. Many many bands have based themselves on the image and sound of the dolls......

And here be the book.......

Arthur Killer Kane I, Doll Life And Death With The New York Dolls.

*the drummer is jerry nolan. Died of an overdose.

Still have the first two Dolls Albums. Was quite the surprised when David Johansen showed up as Buster Poindexter on Saturday Night Live. Took a while to figure out he was.

Are you familiar with this song from oz? I mind hearing it really yonks ago when my suster brought an lp back from oz. Always brings a smile to my face.

The Fatal Wedding Lyrics

The groom stood there waiting for his bride
The best man shiverin' by his side
On him the smell of stale sheep dip
And a flask of brandy on his hip

He knew he'd trod that last long mile
As his dear walked slowly down the isle
This was the day he was waiting for
When he'd get in for his cut and more

Of her old man's station and his gold
As soon as wedding bells had tolled
The fortune sure had smiled his way
This was indeed his lucky day

But the bride, she died at the alter
The bridegroom died next day
The parson dropped dead in the churchyard
As he was about to pray

The hearse capsized at the crossroads
It couldn't make the turn
And the people stood and cheered like mad
As they watched the old church burn

And then the heavens broke open
And the rain it started to fall
And the whole flamin' town got washed away
And there was no one le-eft at all...

The Fatal Wedding

Aye White Rabbit is a very good tune.

Any of yous like The Stooges? I watched the film/documentary recently Gimme Danger. The link below is one of rock musics classic clips where iggy pop is held aloft by the audience. I believe david bowie tried the same thing in his early days but fell. Ah well.

Remember? Raw Power was one of my favorites when I was young. Still burn some of those songs. To me "Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell" sums up that album
