The first mention of a German Supermarket in a song dates back to 1984 and the Bronski Beat’s Smalltown Boy when Jimmy Somerville left in the morning with everything he owned in a Lidl black case.
New Tame Impala album out today
Only got to listen to about 20 mins on the way in this morning but sounds brilliant and looking forward to hearing it properly
Simple things done well . easier said than done … unique sound and very good.
It’s never too late, but I get the sentiment.
Playing with Supergrass & Fun Loving Criminals in Dun Laoghaire on the June Bank Holiday
Cork, Savoy on Patrick St IMSMR in1983 … one of three brilliant concerts that year in Cork … (also U2 and Simple Minds).
Not sure Killing Moon was out at that stage.
I need to remind myself sometimes that this thread includes guilty pleasures, and for me, Roger Hodgson / Supertramp fall into that category.
Great tune, great line up
Love the Tramps Rufus
Good man Al - I knew I wasn’t too far wrong with my taste in music!
Still have their live album, Paris, on my list of CDs to acquire!
Growing up as a Rory and Bowie fan it was not within my then moral fibre to admit openly in the public square that I liked some Abba (The day before you came) and The Carpenters (Every shal lal la) and The Stylistics etc etc
Another Liverpudlian gem.
“Me sister is big int’a dem”.
Mate of mine heading over to London to see Clapton tomorrow night…Next Monday back again for Mick Fleetwood playing all the Peter Greene material with I believe Dave Gilmour.
ABBA. My 6th class in '82 in Finglas did the best three part harmony of ‘Take a chance on me’ I ever heard. It took us a long time to nail it but the nippers kicked ass and took names.
A harmonic explosion of wonderosity way before the talentless Oasis.
I wasn’t alone then !
When you say your 6th class I’m guessing you were an mháistir ?
Sea. Gan amhras.
Bhi siad amhranaithe ar fheabhas ar fad.
