Don Quixote

I've just gone and finished Don Quixote.

Its wicked, funny, relentless, genius and now I struggle to sleep thinkin about it. I feel five years older and never want to see that damn book again.

Sound of Confusion - Free Song

Hey there, if you dig free stuff n cool stuff.

The Sound of Confusion show in a radical step of promotion has its very own web page. Also the show is now on three night a week (Mon, Thu, Sat, all 8pm) and is mighty. Can be heard online. It be the jewel in the Radio Scilly programming schedule that weighs heavily but handsomely on Kev's shoulders.

You can check it out here. Its barer than care bear on the beach at the moment but I'm sure it'll get kind a funky kinda quickly.

To celebrate this monumental event. There's a free download of Marylou available from there from........now. Kev will be posting up free tracks of various bands he digs as it goes along.

New Tank Girl Boogaloo Skids

I is happy. More Tanky. Muchos muchos tanky. Seems to be coming from all directions at the moment except from Mr. Hewlett. Dr. Alan has been busy. This one seems to have the Tanky vibe that I dig and am humbled by. Called Skidmarks and is in the Judge Dredd megazine. Drawn by Rufus Dayglo. Its got a lot of the Fireball vibe in these pics which is tailored for me. I dug the Ashley Wood stuff but wasn't my tanky, this be my tanky.

And holy socks, they got a web site too. Thens theres's the Hewlett creamy book and all sorts of funky thangs.

Plastic Jesus

I was just readin the lyrics from an olde folky song called Plastic Jesus. I only know it from Cool Hand Luke but it seems to have a bit of life of its own with or without Mr Newman. A billion verses by a billion anons. If you don't know it its an ode to the Plastic Jesus 'sitting on the dashboard of my car'. Anyway just passed this verse which I dug:

When I'm in a traffic jam

He don't care if I say "damn"

I can let all my curses roll

Plastic Jesus doesn't hear'

Cause he has a plastic ear

The man who invented plastic saved my soul

Ya can read the rest here

A couple of vids from Limelight Theatre

I dig Open Mikes. You got a host of performers that do a couple of songs. Nice n short, if you're getting bored. You never know what you gonna see, poetry, rap, 14 year old Rage Against the machine covers, 4 year old singers and a whole bunch of sinners. They often kind of get taken over by Dylan coverers, but if there's a balance, well that's cool too.

One the greatest open mike nights for variety is at the Limelight Theatre in Aylesbury run by Pete. As other venues come and go in Aylesbury, say what you like, this show keeps on running. Its got integrity.

Another great night is the Catweazle Night in Oxford which has been running well over 10 years. No electricity, shout yer songs out, candles and real ale. I really need to get back down there.

Anyway, here's a couple of vids from the Limelight night that I did a couple of years ago. My rattlin away seems to have got a little more popular since Seasick Steve showed how its done on tv.

So if ya fancy a gander, just meander up the links below:

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead

What more d'ya need to say? looks lika a wes anderson vampire flick. I'm itchin to see it:

Set yer Slinky to Stun - This Saturday

I dig slinkys. They happily shimmer down the staircase in a profoundly organized manner, and end up neatly stacked waiting to go round again. And the sound is tingling.

So we're gonna slinky and shuffle down the Bell Hotel this Saturday. We got support from the Pale Blue Eyes doing an acoustic set and DJ Squidelica up from London to munch through a pile of garage rock vinyl.
Seems like long time since we played in Aylesbury...

Here and by the way, the photo in the poster is a publicity still from a Japanese 70s film called Girl Boss Gurilla. A film that mixes Straw Dogs with Hello Kitty. I haven't seen it yet, but been dying to see it since seeing the pricey Pinky Violence boxset cover below. Sure is pretty.
