JAMES GRANT of LOVE AND MONEY says:
























This email reached me in october:

JAMES GRANT NEWS

This is something I've always said I'd never do...but this year during a few of my solo shows, I've been playing more of my old songs and I think I've gradually accepted that this is okay now.
Why not, when in essence, people just want to hear them played again?
I did a particular show in June this year when the audience chose the songs; the gig was seventy five percent Love And Money. Thing is, I enjoyed it..

Five albums on as a solo artist, I feel as if I've put enough distance between me and my old band to be able to do this..
This is about getting together with old friends(and fans)and having a good time.

Apologies over.

So...

As part of Celtic Connections 2011, on Sunday January 16th at the Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow, LOVE AND MONEY will be performing our two best albums in their entirety; Dogs In The Traffic and Strange Kind Of Love (it is the twenty fifth anniversary of this records release).

I'm giving you the heads up, tickets will be available from the 19th October.

I guess I'll see you there.


ENOUGH SAID...
These are just two of my favourite JAMES GRANT and LOVE AND MONEY songs:
James Grant - Does It All Add Up To Nothing
Love And Money - She Carved Her Name

SLAINTE, JAMES!!! I hope to see you there!!!

TERRY HALL & DUB PISTOLS (2007)






















Sorry for the delay...
I had an accident last week and injured my ribs which made writing extremely painful and uncomfortable.
But here I am, back again and recovered.

The idea for today's post struck me this morning while I was listening to SIOUXSIE & THE BANSHEES "Rapture" and remembered TERRY HALL covering this song with the DUB PISTOLS.
So here we are with TERRY HALL covering SIOUXSIE, himself with THE SPECIALS, plus some other stuff from the DUB PISTOLS' 2007 release "Speakers And Tweeters":

Peaches feat Rodney P & Terry Hall
Running From The Thoughts feat Terry Hall
Rapture feat Terry Hall
Gangsters feat Terry Hall

"Gangsters" is extremely cool!!!!!

PRIMAL MONDAYS & HAPPY SCREAM DECADE (Vol.8) The Stone Roses















My mini series of my favourite early 1990s!

Did you know why Oasis were named Oasis?
The Stone Roses once played in a club called The Oasis and one of the Gallagher brothers saw them playing and decided to become a britpop star instead of a fuckin' R'n'B nobody.

I love THE STONE ROSES!

Love them with me!
