the AF reissue, Comes a Time reissue, and Twangin' --Dave Edmunds fronting Rockpile--it's taken me months to find it. I love Ebay.

Thin Lizzy....one of my all time favs! Phil Lynott was incredible, wish I had more time, I'll try to finish my thought on this later.

I was listening to the Black Rose album yesterday. Songs like "Got to Give It Up", "Get Out of Here", and "Do Anything You Want to Do" are staples in my record (cd) playing arsenal!

....to be continued....

smg - I am enjoying that Uncut CD. I am not familiar with most of the tracks, but there are plenty of sitars etc. Dig out your beads and kaftan! This issue may have reached your shores already, as it is the June edition, which means it probably came out in early May!

Here is the link to the website, which is already advertising the July issue. http://www.uncut.co.uk/

and herre is the link to June's edition.

I have also been listening to the best of the Dubliners.

Toke Vog, that's a great LP, especially for 3 bucks! Almost everythinbg the Heads did was brilliant, especially the first 5/6 LPs. So many favourites on that one - Warning Sign, Found A Job, The Big Country, all brilliant, and all still vital.

After last night, I am listening to Moz a lot. Ahhhh, Moz. People slated Ouija Board, but I love it so.

CP, it must have been subconscious, then.. doesn't it look like one of those scenes in the end where JC and Ackroyd are chasing each other around the house with guns (if you see the mirror as an open door)? Okay, being silly now I guess...

SOL, grazie for the info!

"Philo was the business" - Bono

Black Rose is great. I really like Toughest Street In The Town, and what about S&M? "he just liked the violence...", a pretty sordid and humourous song at the same time, but that's just typical of Philo to put his unique spin on things. The whole album is great. Last week I saw some bits of Thin Lizzy live and Phil Lynott being interviewed, on the Irish music documentary series "From A Whisper To A Scream'".

Just remembered that he namechecks EC, Nick Lowe and The Attractions on Talk In 79 from his first solo album, Solo In Soho. And Rockpile, which moody just mentioned. Lynott also once stood in for Bruce Thomas in '78 as bass player when Thomas injured his hand. There's a picture of him onstage with the band in the EC biography "Elvis Costello" by Krista Reese, a Trust-era offering.

TALK IN 79 (Philip Lynott)

The Clash were headed for a head on collision
Crash for complete control
The Pistols left behind a swindle and a scandal
That nobody wished to handle
Sham 69 were left in a shambles
Generation X was next

Elvis and Nick Lowe
They had a go
With the help of the Attractions
And Joe Jackson said it wasn't his style
Dave Edmunds survived alive
On top of a Rockpile
Devo didn't know if they were men
Because they couldn't get no satisfaction
The Rats were caught in their own trap
Steve Strange began to change
Ultravox had a system
Kraftwerk nearly beat them
And the Yellow Magic Orchestra missed them
Eno rose for Low

The Slits became rasta
And the Buzzcocks played faster and faster with adrenalin
John Cooper Clarke he was smart
The Public Image became Limited
The Police were re-released and came out as a three-piece

The Rocky Horror Show became the history of tomorrow
Nina Hagen, she was a German maiden
And the music press revealed their anger
When threatened by the Stranglers

This broadcast was brought to you in 1979
I'm just talking to you over these waves
Not just about another time and another place
And before we knew it
The old wave was gone and controlled

I have just bought Linkin Park's (Lincoln Park to you bunny :lol: ) 'Hybrid Theory'. Some pretty neat tracks on it, but then I knew I would like it as they are very much like the Irish band 'Therapy?'

I'm in the same boat, So Lacklustre. I try not to look at my record collection because it makes me sad. If I'd just win the lottery. But saturday's treat was Aimee Mann--Bachelor No. 2. Little cinnamon girl loves it. (the first song on it prominently featured one of those words I'm trying to keep out of her mouth). I like it too. And it is a judicious use of the word.

In the 3 for 20 pounds (I can't find the bloody pound symbol on my laptop!) deal I got Mann's 'Lost in Space', the Kinks' 'Ultimate' for my mother and the Gram Parsons cd Otis was going on about. Someone gave me Paul McCartney's 'Flaming Pie' so that's been in the cd player for the past 3 days. I've never cried whilst listening to a song for the first time but that happened when 'Little Willow' came on just as I was reading about why he wrote it. I only wanted to hear 'Calico Skies' again!

Well, I've been listening to loads of stuff (much of it on recs from you folks, thanks!) but I had to mention I've been listening to tracks from Liz Phair's forthcoming record, and can I just say, EEEEEEWWWW. Yuck.

The single is going to be a song called WHY CAN'T I, which has pretty good lyrics, but the tune and the production (!!) will make everyone say, oh, so is THIS the new Avril Lavigne release? The sad thing is, we've waited FOUR YEARS for this damn record. And I fear, from the sound of the six tracks I've heard, that it will suck. So, so sad.

Get used to the sound of this: Tonight's WB presentation of DAWSON'S CREEK featured songs by Liz Phair..." [Yes I know Dawson's Creek is off the air now, thank frikkin lord.]

So why did he write Little Willow, which I've never heard? For dying Linda?

'Little Willow was written after Paul learned of the death of a dear friend. He created the song not only as an immediate personal response to the sadness but, hopefully, as a salve for his late friend's children.'

"I wanted to somehow convey how much I thought of her. For her and her kids. It certainly is heartfelt and I hope it will help a bit."

I know two people who may take comfort if they listen to it.

Bunny-- that's so sad! But beautiful. WOuld love to hear it (I read the lyrics).

Oddly, there's a great set of lyrics on that new Liz Phair collection I was trashing above (it still sucks, but this is the best song on it) called LITTLE DIGGER, about a little boy whose parents are split up. Similar themes and title. Sample lyric:

You put your trucks up on the bed next to him
so he can get a better look at them
You say "this one's my favorite, this one you can't have - I got it from my dad",
You say, "I got it from my dad".

Now you're thinking little thoughts about it
taking every inch of him in
What does it mean when something changes how it's always been?
And in your head you keep repeating the line
'My mother is mine'

I've done the damage, the damage is done
I pray to God that I'm the damaged one
And all these grown-up complications that you don't understand
I hope you can - someday - I hope you can


Ugh-- heartbreaking. Now THAT's Liz at her best....

The new Steely Dan which is NICE
Finally bought Painted From Memory (half price) and am finding it better than expected.
Also bought at half price Robert Wyatt's Shleep which I have got on now, and is sounding pretty good.
