Mine was Oasis at King Tut's.
Now I think of it I seem to recall paolo taking me to the Boss at London Hammersmith 1975.
You didnt appreciate it
This feels like the umpteenth time I've requested a Sparks' song based on their November, 1974 gig at the Apollo.It might even get played!(The triumph of optimism over experience).
My wife gave me Kimono My House when it came out
I'm with Scotch... umpteenth time of the YESSONGS story... sorry y'all.It's my disgrace.
Mac,Y'all keep bangin' yer heid aff yon wa', as will I.Glen,Picked up CDs of Kimono My House & Propaganda at H.M.V. for £5.99 each.I think the 33⅓ R.P.M. records were around £2.50
I remember when a loaf of bread was 1/- and we had no shoes. We struggled to go down the pit despite our rickets but we were happy and whistled Werewolves of London all the livelong day.
Have y'all been in London recently? You could request it for tonight's show!So much more convenient not having to remove one's shoes for airport security...
A friend of mine had an intimate body search at an airport. When he inquired about the reason he was told they were looking for guns.
Well that's George Cole away.I hear Denis Waterman has asked to sing at the funeral.
Reminds me of the John McCarthy joke - "Do you mind if I call you Terry?"

Cannae beieve they passed up the chance tae play this.Thanks to Julie & Liza Tarbuck for bringing the singer and song to my attention.
Brilliant! My new favourite song! Trocadero has finally been knocked off its perch.
Anybody know where Roxy John is these days?I was thinking about him this morning as I listened to "Heart Still Beating" in the car.Roxy's live album from 1982, it has good versions of Avalon and Love is the Drug as well as covers Like a Hurricane and Jealous Guy. Not forgetting a Glen favourite, A Song For Europe. Epic. I comment the album to the Blog.
I have a recording of the reunion concert in Glasgow in June 2001 which is very good. He appears occasionally on GIO Facebook. You can find him here.
He's a fitbaw man tae!!
Bored?Here's sumfin' for to think aboot.

I'm a big fan too.Could listen to him for hours.

That's all I hear. Simon Mayo this, Simon Mayo that. We had trams in Glasgow years ago.
Flummoxed as to why Paper Lace haven't been requested as a back to back double tonight.
I can hear my mama cry.

How did you get on Billy?Bit optimistic with Wall of Voodoo actually, were you no?
12 I think but this needs to be independently verified. Wall of Voodoo was requested by a few folk but I made the mistake of not starting my post with 'how about '...
Here Mac! You're supposed to hae Glen's back. They're ganging up on him ower there.Off to New Haven tonight. Taking the boy to university. A week of Billy Joel, Brooce, Air Supply, Eagles and Christopher Cross on the radio to look forward to.
Adam's theme on Tuesday.(I'll only be listening on Monday & Tuesday).>8-D
Presume it's a key university. He's done very well..
Sorry y'all... asleep at the wheel with all this Jackanory pish.
That's "their" Jackanory pish not ours ;-)
Dad used to take us to Mudsea in the Morris Mediocre and all the while we'd sing along to Roddy & The Raspberries.
Just checked today's playlist. It's been on the way for years but they've finally made it down the plughole. Pure K-Tel. So you'll all be listening out for tomorrow's fave 80s tunes? C'mon, Billy, time for another list.
Sorry don't have time.
Losing the will to live here...New thread please Mr Norm Jx
Special prize of a Tommy Riley CD kindly donated by myself will go to the person who scores the first goal on this thread.
That'll be the autobiographical album,The Life of Tommy >8-D
first time I've been to King Tut's - really liked it as a venue till the main band came on (Pale Fire) and the audience drifted in from the bar, seemingly determined to keep the conversations going whatever. Two lovely acoustic songs were ruined (for me) by the non-stop chatter. Shame, as the band were great. Liked the support band James Jack too. There was also a solo singer/guitarist called Mayor Stubbs. He seemed decidedly eccentric, but bit of a whizz on the acoustic guitar. Ticket price for 3 acts was £6.50.
I was lucky enough to see Kinky Friedman there, many moons ago.Great venue, great show!
Great venue, had no idea it was so small. But that's the drawback as well when a few decide to carry on talking and laughing at full volume. Makes me think back in amazement at the Low Anthem gig in Òran Mòr where there was not a sound from the audience during the quiet songs. But you know, it must be so hard for the many bands trying to make it - how can anyone make a living off playing in a venue so small with ticket prices that are laughable? Pale Fire got a rave review for their album from Alan Morisson in the Herald, which is why I listened to it in the first place. I fully expected the whole audience to be word-perfect last night, but not so. So unless you're lucky enough to get packaged and sold to the radio stations chances are your band will sadly have to pack it in.
MONDAYMissing Ol' Johnny Cash - Willie & Merle
oh hey, where on earth is everyone?
They have been seduced by the Dark SideExcept for Norrie.Norrie is in a Vegas jailhouse.
I'm here just not had much time to join in lately.
Glen must be away seeing the grandwean.
Got back to Rio Tuesday and flying to London tonight (Feel like I'm in an M song).Not sure if I'm going to have a date to see you guys now. Think I'll only be in Edinburgh on the 13th.
that's a shame, Adam, but there's only tumbleweed left here now.
NEWSFLASH!"First Scottish gig for 40 years!"FAMILY supported by THE STRAWBSABC Sauchiehall Street on December 10th.
their pensions not up to sctratch then?
Bizarre! (at least that's what Babs likely thinks) Jx
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GLEN!What's that? You want a new thread? Well, I'm sure Norrie will organise that for you!
Thanks, Scotch. I am now twice as old as my daughter. In four years I will be twice as old as my son. At the moment the sum of their ages is a square. I wish I knew how how old I am. Never mind, here comes the afternoon tea trolley.
I thought I had responded to this already. Silly me!Now, where was I? Oh, aye! Sixty six? You are but a youngster! Not so young as moi, mais oui!Is that the time? Should've been asleep pure hours ago...
nobody wants to be an old square. Belated Happy Birthday, Glen.
Many happy returns Glen.What happened to indian summers. Freezing down here.
Thanks everyone. I can remember the coronation but not what I had for breakfast.
Read 'em and weep!
