LEONARD COHEN - OLD IDEAS.

 

He still has a gift of a golden voice, and he's still a lazy bastard, living in a suite. His sarcasm is still cool as ice. The ladys sing as if they come from upon high, and that's where they take you. 10 new songs appear on this CD. Theres nothing new or different here. Just pure Cohen, and it is a gem !

 

TELSTAR.


This film is a biography on the life of the legendary song writer/producer, Joe Meek.

Joe was born in the west country, before a move to London to set up his own little recording studio, where he produced hundreds of songs. Including a few Top Ten hit singles, but more importantly, a couple of number ones, including the films title song 'Telstar', recorded by The Tornado s.

This film was an eye opener from the start, and there was not a dull moment. It helped to fill in a lot of blanks in Joe's story, and was able to remain very entertaining, whilst still being very informative. Joe led a meandering life, which was full of highs, and lows. This is illustrated well in the film, with comedy and sadness, all rolled into one. The roles were also played superbly by all the actors involved.

All in all. I can highly recommend this as one of the best films I have seen in this genre. It was a roller-coaster ride from start to finish, and I am more than happy to rate Telstar as 10/10.

                                                         Excellent. A must see !!!

 

 

 BIG MACS WHOLLY SOUL BAND.

 

 This album is an unashamed cover of standard classics. From the Stacks, and Mowtown labels, to general dance tunes., Big Mac has a distinctive Soul voice. Whilst the Wholly Soul Band are as tight as The Block Heads.

 This CD has its own feel to it, as if all 25 tunes were written by themselves, with great interpretations and production. So if you like 'Sam & Dave', 'Ben E King', 'Sam Cook', and 'The Four Tops', then you will understand why this double CD is an instant floor filler.

 Just like the old Northern  Soul nights. Great for a party, without all the 'silly' party songs......   GOOD TIMES

 Big Mac, and his back line, plus Brass section, and Lady singers are certainly a priceless commodity. They prove that white men can jump.......Skip, and hop !!!!!

 All in all, I have no problem in awarding this album with 10 out of 10 'Perky Points'.                                                                         

                                                                          ENJOY !!!!!!

 

 

GLC - THE MIX TAPE TWO

 

GLC fuck up your head,
Make you wish you stayed in bed.
Throwing up lyrics that frighten your Granny,
Or make her restart her fanny.

They'll make you laugh, They'll make you cry.
Do I buy the CD, or eat another pie ?
Remixed, and AutomatiProving there's money in the attic.

It is good old GLC,
And that'll do for me.
Might make you want to retort.
Keeping it real, in the 'Port.
