Re: Song of the day

Just listened to this song on my walk back to work from lunch, gives you a bit of a swagger in your step!! Well, it did for me.

I give you... Let's Kill Music by The Cooper Temple Clause

The power of this is still palpable 29 years on. I was at this gig in 1978.

It's all fairly straightforward until you get to

Re: Song of the day

A more recent band, one I like and have had the pleasure of 'meeting' when they were hammered in Glasgow (got a couple of pics of the lead singer looking proper ed!!). Was gutted that I didn't get to see them out here - they played Zurich the day I started work.
