This....the story of my life.
In fairness - that has Tarantino written all over it.
I'm moving furniture today, so I need something 'big music' to stay motivated and not risk damaging the spine.
This showed up on a Spotify playlist.
Give Blood was one of the tracks I didn't even play on. I brought in Simon Phillips, Pino Palladino and David Gilmour simply because I wanted to see my three favourite musicians of the time playing on something and, in fact, I didn't have a song for them to work on, and sat down very, very quickly and rifled threw [sic] a box of stuff, said to Dave, "Do one of those kind of ricky-ticky-ricky-ticky things, and I'll shout 'Give Blood!' in the microphone every five minutes and let's see what happens." And that's what happened. Then I constructed the song around what they did.
This is the dog's undercarriage in fairness. Excellent stuff and very compelling. One of my all time favourite pieces of comic film. Massive fan of Laurel and Hardy and 'New Gold Dream' anyway which is just lush so both together are just excellent
Haven't heard Brady in years ... love his style and the piano in his work. Same reason I like Joe Jackson. Bit of a monster, Mr Brady, and I think very influential...
I've seen Hothouse Flowers a few times down the decades, a band I've always liked, and I love the way they kind of matured over time into something of a nice tapestry of a band and sound. I was delighted to note the intro piece to the new car show on Netflix when the three lads got kicked off the BBC. Jeremy thing.
It was Hothouse Flowers playing and they sounded fantastic.
Thinking of Gurdy Leary and the whole 'Nun Attax' scandal in Cork I think the whole idea of painting 'Nun Attax' on walls around Cork was fair enough as a publicity drive but it didn't go down well with the local Stasi so Gurdy had to head out of town 'till the heat died down ... swam the Rio Grand between Cork and Kerry with a bass guitar between his teeth, they say... nearly went sane from eating the cactus plants in those parts.
Check out the drummer, Mowl ....
