World Chat / Mark Burgess interview
« on: December 16, 2015, 02:52:39 PM »
Well if BBQ should ever be too busy with nappies it seems that Mark Burgess of the Chameleons could take over...

Always liked the Chameleons and was lucky enough to see them twice back in the early '80's - even if you are not a fan some interesting stuff here on the Pistols too!

TV Songs / Keys To the World
« on: September 21, 2015, 11:53:01 AM »
Forgot to mention that at Rebellion TV, in his acoustic set, did a new song, 'Keys To The World', at least a new one to me?

"Praise the hatred, the killing, the bombed out buildings... Be the best, embrace the worst, weak hunger, weak thirst... they turn up and grant us the keys to the world.."
(lyrics may not be quite right!)

So another hard hitting but melodic song that I think could soon be a firm favourite...

World Chat / Brits Abroad
« on: July 30, 2014, 05:00:22 PM »
Surely our German friends here don't hold these views of us Brits featured in Bild......

Drunk, overweight and sunburnt: what the Germans think of holidaying Britons

German newspaper Bild lists the "ailments" that afflict Britons abroad, including a tendency to drink too much and strip off at the slightest opportunity

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/germany/11000748/Drunk-overweight-and-sunburnt-what-the-Germans-think-of-holidaying-Britons.html

OK I may have a little sunburn...

TV Songs / Accoustic Sessions Vol 1
« on: October 07, 2013, 11:03:30 AM »
I'm intrigued by the new studio acoustic album - something I've heard called for many times!

So how does it compare to the 'originals' and more to the point what's the track listing?!
