An endless stream of early 90s grunge and alternative rock on some German radio station I've found online. Getting me through my working day nicely.

Been cranking up the K C & the Sunshine Band 'best of' these past few days. Musically, it certainly suits this current weather. Lovin’ that horn sound. It loses traction by becoming slightly samey by track 16 but most are genuine disco-era classics.

The version of Queen Of Clubs here sounds a bit murky/muddy and I wonder at the source, but the rest are wonderful.
‘Please Don’t Go’ is one of the best/saddest love songs written by anyone, ever.

Been playing " A tribute to David Bowie" a great bunch of covers put together by Howard Stern .It needs a couple of plays to get used to the different interpretations of classic bowie tracks ,but well worth a listen.

Just been catching up with 'Stray' never actually saw them in concert but funny story, we'd been shopping at tesco's on Ecclesall road many moons ago probably 1977/78 and we either got a free Lp at the check out or our young son had put it in the trolley - who knows? but if it was him he was showing he'd good choice for his age - LOL (Stray stand up and be counted 1975)

Anyway  had a  dabble on you tube today and regressed back in time for a while - Happy Daze.

As a youth in West London, Stray was my local band. Saw them perform many times at the Marquee in Wardour Street. Their eponymous first album is still a favourite of mine. This week, though, I'm listening to a lot of Xoki and Hieronymus.

Was lucky enough to see Stray a couple of times at the Improvisions club on Arundel Gate. The jock there was a big fan of their One Night In Texas single and played it often.

Good crowd for both gigs. I’m thinking I ought to get myself a ‘best of’.

I'm still catching up with the Stray back catalogue in the back ground as I write this.

 

We were still doing the whole Teddy Boy thing back then (still am lol).

Big old British cars, Ted suits, and R 'N' R weekenders. etc

but still more into the heavy stuff rather than chart stuff hence I (we) could appreciate that Stray LP.

I think it goes down to if you hear good music you know & appreciate it.

We didn't pay for any of the concerts we saw at the City Hall (but that's a different story) and it was because of that we found just who could play and those who couldn't string two notes together.

I've said it before I would at that time never have gone to see Roxy Music but in concert they were about as good as you could get away from a recording studio.

I Never enjoyed any of the Black Sabbath concerts for some reason I can never explain but really enjoyed the stage presence of Alex Harvey, Mott the Hoople etc. 

 

Keep safe

 

Keep the music live

 

Rock 'n' Roll a way of life. but yer can't buy Zephyrs for £40 any more -   :cry:
