  1. By the way – Malcolm Laycock – top man!

    Re: German Pop: who knew it could be this good?

    And for completists here’s Doug doing it his own hairy way..

    Loving the Bernd Cluver – especially how they make you wait almost 2 minutes before the titular mundharmonika makes its appearance – talk about delayed gratification…
    It’s also struck me that singing surrounded by hordes of people seems to have been very much the thing circa 1972/3. Even this reclusive chap was at it:

    Enter Shikari! That’s just magnificent. Well spotted.

    Give me the Amen Corner any day. Honest to God, the words just popped out of my mouth, I didn’t mean anything by it.

    Beautiful. Here’s some more of what German teenagers were listening to in 1973

    while our girls were digging David..

    Tell me; which was healthier? Hmmm? Some of the girls swaying to Bernd probably went on to join the Red Army Faction, which was just about to take off big time; and little wonder. What’s worse, some of the boys probably went on to form Scorpions. By the time of these recordings, our own Angry Brigade were all in prison – for who can be angry in a world which gave us David?

    Ooh, don’t don’t let Pete M hear you say that!
    Somewhere in Britain there must be a small town with a corresponding glut of German schlager music…

    Thanks to Lonesomedepot for his anti-indie rant, which I’d want to heartily endorse. The problem round here is not so much indie, though, as bloody Gypsy Jazz…

  9. Very nice stuff , thanks for sharing dude . It really show me a new sense 🙂

    Do you do requests?

    Adam Walton on Radio Wales starts at 10pm. I usually listen to his show on the iPlayer on Monday mornings, mind.

    Ah, if only you’d had such a genius idea during my tenure in Presteigne I’d have been glad to ‘help out’ as well. But I’ll be listening. (I can always Iplayer Malcolm Laycock.) And yes, that’s a salient point about D Jacobs. I’ve not read N Lezard’s piece yet, but it’s pretty clear that in a world where you can hear Coldplay, Oasis etc without even trying to, the music he plays has become the most ‘alternative’ there is (and probably the most likely to get an adverse reaction if played to a cross section of ‘ver public’). Yet the myth persists that listening to ‘indie’ rock music denotes some edginess of taste.

    Love the idea of yr radio prog: go for it. I agree about that terrible Radio Tarquin nonsense on Radio 4, and I speak as a) a professional radio broadcaster and b) mother of any number of children. Have you sampled Radio Wales at all?
