Brilliant stuff from 1983. ‘When the night falls, it falls on me, and when the day breaks I’m in pieces’. All this and Ry Cooder too.
A bit of lunarcy from the lovely Apollo album.
Imagine Eric Cantona on vocals, backed by the Spotnicks. For those of you who don’t remember the Spotnicks, here they are from 1962. Swedish guys in space helmets.
RLJ’s version of the Traffic classic from her 2000 covers album It’s Like This.
I could never tire of Ryland P playing the mandolin. This is an Old Grey Whistle Test version of the song from his eponymous debut album. And here’s the original.
In memory of the Yorkshire folkie, who has died https://www.theguardian.com/music/2021/sep/11/michael-chapman-british-folk-musician-dies-aged-80 aged 80. This is from his 1970 LP Fully Qualified Survivor.
Following Wilco’s A&M debut yesterday, here they are backing Lord Bragg on Woody Guthrie’s song. Mermaid Avenue’s a pretty good album.

One of the great romantic lyrics: If I was a booger, would you blow your nose?
