  1. A session Wesley Gonzales did for Marc Riley's 6Music show last week. I hear an occasional hint of early Bowie.
  2. 'Elvis' 9/10 No review, but there are some incredible shivers-down-your-spine moments. Hairs DID stand up on the back of my neck. Thought the fella who played BB King was impressive. Didn't recognise him from anything previously. The last 25 minutes(ish) I felt genuinely sick watching Parker's manipulations. I know Elvis brought a lot of his downfall on himself by being weak, but an unselfish Parker could have steered him a completely different way. Oscar nomination for Hanks I reckon. Can't give it a 10 as Luhrmann felt it necessary to include a few rap numbers. WHY????? Rap has no place near Elvis. You never know, next up, a Parker film made by his decedents showing how wrong this film was? Stranger things.... https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=Elvis+2022+Film&FORM=VRDGAR&view=detail&mid=0DEEB3F6E860826F660A0DEEB3F6E860826F660A
  3. ....and here's another one I've not heard. Listened to a session they did on Marc Riley's program the other night though. Very engaging. 'I Wanna Be Your Yoko Ono' - The Courettes.
  4. 'Goin' Down To Memphis' - John Martyn.
  5. '(Do You Wanna) Come Walk With Me?' - Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan "Leave the light on for me, From Virginia to Alaska, From sea to shining sea....."
  6. Reading the latest MOJO today. There's a piece on a Syd Barrett bootleg called 'Psychedelic Freak Out' It's meant to contain a track called 'Susan's Lungs' I have not heard the track.
  7. 'Field' - Fish "Where you have climbed Jacob's Ladder; where you saw the light of God,"
  8. 'Santa Rosa' - ABBA (It's in California)
  9. 'Teenage Dirtbag' - Wheatus "Her name is Noelle, I have a dream about her....."
  10. 'Heartbreak Hotel' - Elvis Presley "Well, since my baby left me Well, I found a new place to dwell Well, it's down at the end of Lonely Street At Heartbreak Hotel....."
  11. 'The Boiler' - The Bodysnatchers Interesting one, this. When writer Rhoda Dakar first did this song with The Bodysnatchers, her original lyrics (as heard on the John Peel session) mention walking down Carnaby Street. However, when she later recorded the song with The Specials she'd changed it to High Street.
  12. 'Mad About The Boy' - Noel Coward (and Tom Robinson and Dinah Washington and no doubt countless others) "It seems a little silly For a girl my age and weight To walk down Piccadilly In a haze of love"
  13. 'Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride' - Kamehameha Schools Children's Chorus & Mark Keali'i Ho'omalu
  14. 'Strange Day Over The Hill' - Strawbs "The sky was like a crystal, it was sapphire blue, I was like a kid again, so were you. It's a strange day, a strange day over the hill. The sun came round to polish up the copper beech, The leaves were black as leather where the sun don't reach, It's a strange day, a strange day over the hill......"
