Giant Weazle - this is for you.

And so is this.

Oh grow up!

As I staggered through the windblown snowy streets of West London this morning I spotted a middle aged couple in a convertible sports car wearing cowboy hats. They were wearing eleventy million coats as well.

It's not cool, it's cold.

"Much better in summer"

And everyone was mocking you.

And without a shadow of doubt...

The worst cover version of all time. What DID they think they were adding?

Lame Space Filling Post

I woke up this morning to the very wonderful Galaxie 500 cover of Ceremony.

I am Ian Curtis and I am dead now.

Dagnamit that is a fine cover. So instead of coming up with some decent content here is a short list of fantastic covers. Disagree at will.

Galaxie 500 - Ceremony
Johnny Cash - Hurt
When the Levee Breaks – Kristen Hersh
The Gourds - Gin and Juice
Jeff Buckley - Halleluiah
Wedding Present - Come up and see me…
Frank and Walters - Funky Cold Medina
White Stripes - Jolene
Be Good Tanyas – Oh Suzanna
Billy Childish – Jaguar and Thunderbird

Let's Have Somme Fun

I went for a weekend in the country, I do that sort of thing you know, because I am so very middle class. I got to hang out with my Aged Parent on her birthday and re-kindle an old friendship with my estranged canine chum Scrumpy.

And they say cats are bad...
Now she may look cute but this animal is a one bitch death wave. Stumbling through muddy countryside and hundreds of fallen trees despatching one partially killed animal after another really takes the edge off a nice sunday walk. But fair play to a Jack Russell for managing to catch an adult male pheasant, even if she wasn't up to finishing the job.
We couldn't even take the remains home to eat, in case we got spotted by the pheasant's former owner. Although I maintain we should have hung on to that rabbit. It was in short bloody, muddy and cold.
Malvern Last Weekend
And when we got home the roasted veg was all burnt.
On the plus side lady smahman really enjoyed breaking in her new welly boots. Jumping in puddles and mud all round.
