This answers the question "What happens if you cross Love's "Forever Changes" with The Stranglers?"

Should have been used in Breaking Bad!

Happi MŁller, indeed a familiar name when it comes to cover artwork (didn't he play bass on one of the albums too?)...

For those of you not watching the front page...

Well I did watch it from time to time, but not today.  :)

Brenchley on Friday afternoon!

Me and Mrs. S will be in attendance.

Think I'll be at the Unicorn gig next month too, only I'll be there at least three hours later in the day as I've spotted an oily stain on the undercard.

Hopefully, Ken and Za will be there too

Wow!

I've been lucky enough to hear this song live several times, so I'm familiar with it's basic structure. I love the way the song, and subsequent verses start, with the acoustic guitar being joined by percussion and a fat bass with more layers of instrumentation (electric guitar and keyboards) building up into and over the chorus.

Many of TV's songs make me smile for various reasons, usually very clever lyrics, but I particularly enjoyed the right hand work on the percussive acoustic guitar around 2.05.

Many thanks for sharing this lovely taster for the album Tim - can't wait for it!

Cover is by Happi MŁller, who's designed just about all my sleeves since "Useless." For those of you not watching the front page, you can get a little taster of the new album with a clip from new download single "No Hope Street" here http://werockwebzine.co.uk/tv-smith-releases-first-single-no-hope-street?platform=hootsuite

Lengthy interview with Rat. Not sure if all the facts are 100% ("abandoned as a baby"? - never heard that one), but it's a fun read.

PKM: Have you ever met Ginger Baker?

Rat Scabies: Actually, a friend of mine is his roadie and I fill in when he canít do it. So I set up Gingerís drums regularly. Itís great because Iíve been watching Ginger play since I was fifteen.

PKM: So you obviously get on with him well.

Rat Scabies: No. I donít think anyone does really. Haha! I was interviewed in his documentary and they cut me from it because I was the only one to say nice things. So I thought it was a bit unfair to him. The thing that Ginger did was bring African music to Europe. He went to Africa just to learn about African rhythms and how that music worked. He was the first person to do that in the early 1970ís. He nearly got shot for supporting a revolution and nobody is interested in that, they are only interested in him being a cunt.

That part was quite interesting as I'd watched that doc a while ago... had no idea Rat could've been in it.

Here's a review of the PATM gig last week:
