Doing The Bandcamp Thang

Whilst perusing the web’s premier music source I stumbled upon this version of a Nick Lowe song which is a favourite of mine.

…Based on a previous Japanese interpretation…

…Mais oui t’original with With Rockpile…

…Which included Dave Edmunds…

…Billy Bremner, here backing George Harrison on Rutland Weekend Television…

…And Terry Williams, who found himself in dire straits, so joined them.

The aforementioned Girls Talk’ was an Elvis Costello song who was in turn covered (What’s So Funny Bout) Peace, Love And Understanding as written by his producer Nick Lowe.

…the original being from Nick’s time in Brinsley Schwarz.

A Whale Of A Time

A lesson for those who feel large scale public works of art are a waste of money.

Screen capture from the BBC News website of an article about a train in the Netherlands that has gone off the end of a track but has been saved from plunging into a river below by a large sculpture of the tails of whales.
