Let down is one of the most underrated tracks by Radiohead..................

At 3.41 it becomes positively joyous as the music and Thom Yorkes vocals open up.

Radiohead claim to hate Creep but when they do play it live it remains the out and out crowd pleaser. I was at their homecoming concert in Oxfords South Park when the rain got into the electrics of some of their kit during the encore. So, for the first time in years, they resorted to Creep. One of the most epic moments in all of the gigs that I've been to over the years. Warning - this live video does contain a couple of naughty words...................

A Radiohead cover of a song written by Joy Division (just before Ian Curtis committed suicide) and released by New Order as their first single................

Talking of New Order here's a clip of a BBC session that they did way back when. They were hugely hungover and whilst this performance teetered on the edge of shambolic it thankfully remains brilliant!

This record was played eight years ago in a film on TV called "Adventureland," which was only a few years old. I've always liked it and I hadn't heard it for some time. I presumed it would have only been available on CD, but as it's from 1986, I was able to buy a mint copy on eBay of a 7" single for a couple of quid. It plays well in one of my two vinyl jukeboxes.

That was also used in Stephen King's "The Stand" after a virus had killed 98% of the population :eek:

It's easy to dismiss the eighties as the era of mullets, shoulder pads, filofaxes and greed but it was incredibly rich musically, especially the early eighties. So here's a few of the gems of that decade;
Pete Wylie was a god. He may have had that mullet but he had a hell of a way with a tune and his lyrics cut to the heart of the matter.............

Echo And The Bunnymen were another class Liverpool band...............

Furniture should have been huge but for some reason it never happened for them..............

And across the Atlantic America had The Replacements..............

Don't you love Kenny Garrett, Miles is holding his trumpet microphone close to his alto sax, as Kenny's microphone had stopped working.

The tune is part of an improvisation on Michael Jackson's "Human Nature," it just builds and builds.

Frank Sinatra. Singing "One for My Baby" (at 4.00 in the video)

Hmm..

I wonder where I could get one of these?....



I've all versions of the Blade Runner films, plus the Vangelis cassette tape of the music, (yeah! it's that old!) and the hardback book, "Blade Runner 2, Edge of Reason," by K W Jeter.

Nice framed photograph of a Young Sean Young at 4.46 in this clip.
