045 My favourite 45

Snap, Crackle and Pop.

Round and round you go, forty five times every minute, with your shiny black grooves filled with wonderful noise. But how can I possibly single you out from all your seven inch circular friends.

Perhaps this week’s podcast can help?

Public Image!! Aztec Camera!! Frank Sinatra!! I’ve got the VINYLMANIA and there ain’t no cure!!!

I’m looking forward to hearing every last pop, scratch, and hiss..

Terrific compilation. Starting with Jackie and ‘that’ voice has just got to be good. I’ll listen to this before my tea…….

I’m very jealous that you have a copy of “Jackie” on Vinyl *listens*

Looks good, some excellent choices in there!

Best intro? Bob from Gimme Tinnitus, made me splutter all over my keyboard…

Cheers for letting me be involved!

OMG, Tim that Marlena Shaw cut is WICKED GROOVY!

Ah, this is mighty.

Awsome show,I’ve only just started to get into Scott Walker, so lovin Jackie Tim. Also The Spare Blushes are amazing, never heard of em, but digging the shoegazer vibes !!

Fil, do you smoke loads of cigarettes? you sound far to rocknroll, good choice with mower.

Nino Tempo & April Stevens was really nice and yes Leatherface were very underated,great band.

Mr Jaws track cracked me up.
GOD EVERY BLOODY TRACK WAS GRETA. I COULD GO ON FOR EVER !!!

Rock on everybody.

I remember that Dickie Goodman “Mr Jaws” from the radio and I think I owned one of his other “songs” about the election in 72, where the questions were to McGovern and Nixon. What a blast from the past! Nobody does novelty records like that anymore.
I have to say that I agree with Ross: every bloody track was great! I guess we all had great musical beginnings.

Wonderful stuff. I’m looking forward to podcast number 78!

Podcast 78 .. now that’s an idea!

I’m surprised none of you had heard of the Spare Blushes though?

Maybe we should do a shoegazer contrast?

Possibly. The only thing is that I try to make sure themes can be as ‘contrasty’ as possible .. i.e. that most genres of music would fit.

Ross, I fear you got me mixed up with Bob Tinnitus – he’s the one with the Mower and is faaaar more rock ‘n’ roll than me… 🙂

Well, you know, I actually appreciated the Spare Blushes track. I think I might have been at their one and only gig, come to think of it. Chemistry, that band had. And talent, yes, but the drugs got in the way. They might have an anthology coming out in a couple of decades. Cheers Tim and Colin.

oh, nat–i used to think that song was SOOOO racy, like i shouldn’t be listening to it. it’s like a visceral blast from the past. thanks for that!

tom–i don’t think i can forgive you for mr. jaws! 😉

this was simply another fab podcast all around. i echo ross’s sentiments.

I’m about halfway through the ‘cast, and I must say, The Spare Blushes could have and should have been huge. What a loss! My shoes are soaked through with the tears dripping from my gazing eyes.

SAS: You have the newspaper sleeve??? Sigh…

*FiL turns green with envy*

Wow – I’m in heaven. What a great selection. It’s so nice when something like Green Onions just turns up. And Marlena Shaw…

Yes Fil, I have few vinyl boasts – a rare US import of Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables, and a signed Jam album – but I keep the newspaper PiL sleeve apart from everything else in a secret underground location in Switzerland.

Great selection people.

This makes me think we should have a ‘my most expensive record’ podcast.

I presume you all read the Spare Blushes tragic tale on their wikipedia page?

yes tim, i have read the Spare Blushes page on “wikipedia”…!

Aiyeeee! I remember some american kid at school doing that ‘Mr Jaws’ routine at me when we were about 9. It was seriously lame even for a 9 year old.

Try Keb Darge for some real obscure top class music. Plays at Madam JoJo’s in SOHO on Friday nights!
