I've a certain fondness for a band that has the balls to open a peice with a guitar solo:
Anyone remember one or more of the many Pubs in Croydon that had live music back in the 70's? These guys played at the Greyhound to name but one.

It has taken no little self-control but I've refrained from uploading my favourite Poly Harvey track in favour of a reminder there is no finer musical instrument than the human voice:
Had I not there is more than a 50% chance I'd have been banned from SD!

Time for something not of this Isle or the US:
I have both their albums (vinyl) and while neither are all killer - no filler I certainly don't feel robbed at £1.75 and £1.99 respectively.

When DG kicks in on Shine on....... just about the best ever,well the NUMB song is right up there.

Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom,
Blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter,
Come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!
You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Well you wore out your welcome with random precision,
Rode on the steel breeze.
Come on you raver, you seer of visions,
Come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!



Bobs back too.

Not hard to work it out ha ha.

Let me tell you about my mountain home
Where all the ladies names are Joan
Where husbands work back late at night
Hopes are up for trousers down
With hostess on a business flight
Taxi in a Mercedes drive
I hope that driver's coming out alive
The garden is a dorsetted
That lady she's so corseted
She's got 15 ways to lead that boy astray
He thinks he's one and only
But that lovely she's so lonely
She pumps him full of breakfast and she sends him on his way
What a sing song dance
What a performance
What a cheap tent show
Oh no no no no no
Then the boys light up
Then the boys light up
Then the boys light up
Then the boys light up light up light up
Silently she opens the drawer
Mothers little helper is coming out for more
Strategically positioned before the midday show
Her back is arched those lips are parched
Repeated blow by blow
Later at the party all the mps rave
About the hummers she's been giving
And the money that they save
To her it is skin lotion
For his promotion to
That flat in surfers paradise with the ocean view
What a sing song dance
What a performance
What a cheap ten show
Oh no no no no no Then the boys light up
Then the boys light up
Then the boys light up
Then the boys light up light up light up

One of the blaster masters,I bought the LP when it came out and confess that this song sorted me out when he got into the solos.
