The Cure, yes, lads from Crawley. The main guy has been very savvy with his money and investments, they are really big in France.

We could have a sub-topic, 'Bands forgotten at home - still celebrated abroad', there would be many!

Flip-side: 'Bands still celebrated at home - still never heard of abroad' :lol:

It Takes a Thief theme (first and second seasons)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9o7JV1crjmg

Probably my favourite television theme. It was composed by Dave Grusin, whose other credits include the theme for St. Elsewhere and contributions to the soundtracks of films including The Graduate.

It Takes a Thief ran for three seasons on the ABC television network between 1968 and 1970 and was one of the last series in the '60s spy/secret agent genre. Robert Wagner (making his TV debut) starred as Alexander Mundy, an upscale thief working for the US government in exchange for his release from prison. Fred Astaire appeared in a few episodes as Al's father.

Kirk Fletcher at the Semaphore Workers Club.

https://youtu.be/N6hzFMtlwVI


Hiya

I like that,do you know if I can get a DVD of that gig.Looked on amazon etc and only CD's come up

I never knew Semaphore had a workers club,when I lived around there it was always the port dock bar in Port Adelaide,their wonderful micro brewery beer.Old Preacher,I think around 8% alcohol,tasted and looked like dandelion and burdoch,really nice pint .

Then The Largs hotel on the coast,famous for Cold Chisel and Jimmy Barnes when they were an Adelaide band

Thanks

A very HQ 'studio/live' video, given how old it is.

Something different to successions of thrash bands…

Alcest (whom you have probably never heard of) a French guy https://youtu.be/85c-P9hbmBg in the same vein as M83 who provide the music for Canal+'s series Versailles.

… and Slowdives 'When the Sun hits' mixed with scenes from Picnic at Hanging Rock https://youtu.be/QSx5zNxiXz4 sunny summer music

And Germany, and America and all other European and Asian nations judging by the crowds in Hyde Park on Saturday… Magic gig sidelined the footie for most attendees. Editors set drew the short straw on stage when the match took place. Still had a crowd of 20000+

When was the last time you heard a song about cannibalism?

Try Silver Spoon from Sunfighter, one of my all-time-favourite albums (1971).
Grace Slick at her very best, Paul Kantner, Papa John Creach, Jack Casady and others.

They don't make them like that any more

Literal answer. Literal advice, don't bother playing it, esp if you suspect you might know the track ;)

"Mr. Moto," the Belairs (1961)

"Surf Beat," Dick Dale (1962)

"Goofy Foot," the Lively Ones (1963)

Some classic surf music instrumentals. All with the reverb turned up to 11, of course.

"I Wonder What She's Doing Tonight," Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart (1967)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfnlBXLHd08

A very well crafted song from a duo who knew a thing or two about coming up with pop hits. It's a shame to think that this song only went to #8 in the charts when crap like "Judy in Disguise (With Glasses)" and "Green Tambourine" was hitting #1 in the Hot 100.

"All right, Bobby, let's go!"

Late 70s punk.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1J11IpgVG2I
The Damned - Melody Lee

The line was punk musicians 'couldn't play their instruments'. Well, this disproves that, and the speed...

Same track, Peel Session. Dec '78 [dazzling recording quality of coursec/o John Peel]
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdTHYmBMu_k

Ditto this for musicianship, this 40+ years later from a 'rag-tag bunch of kids' shows that's not all that was going on, at all.
Follows on on auto-play to.... more
