ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On May 31st, 2019

Because Friday night is Music Night

Another week done at the coalface of capitalism and my mood is summery. It’s going to be a scorcher tomorrow, a good day for the housewives out there to get the washing on the line. It’s also the Big One tomorrow. I speak of course of Saracens vs Exeter at Twickers. Nothing else is going on, nothing at all.

Have yourselves a good weekend, whatever you’re up to. As always, feel free to share your top sounds down below –

  1. Prog rock, (shivers), rubbish. Thank Christ pub rock and punk came along to save us from that pretentious neo hippy waffle.

    Speaking of pub rock, I’m going to see these guys tomorrow week:

    Dirty, menacing, sweaty stuff played the way it should be.

  2. Paul blocked in my country…..

  3. It’s also the Big One tomorrow.

    Surely you mean the Scousers v the Sperz in Madrid? A Sperz win (nailed-on) will complete a very bad week for fans of the Arsenal. Time to ship out £350k a week waster Ozil. In fact long overdue, you could pay three decent players for that money.

    For the benefit of our US friends:

  4. Paul blocked in my country…..

    Pity. Dr Feelgood, Milk & Alcohol. Look it up.

  5. I really hope Totting-ham win tomorrow. Liverpool fans will be unbearable otherwise.

    Been in NY for work this week. What a magnificent place – some spectacular storms a couple of evenings too.

  6. Paul –

    I agree about prog rock, but that one’s not so prog. It’s a quirky little one.

    Peter –

    I absolutely mean Sarries vs Exeter. In my reality it’s Barca vs Ajax in Madrid. If there are 76 genders then I can have my own reality. Nope, I will not even check the score.

    No arguments on Ozil (“warm up Mesut, you’re coming off”), but where will we find a bunch of mugs rich and stupid enough to match what he’s already getting? We’d have to subsidise half his salary, at least. The club’s been so mismanaged for years that it’ll take another couple of years just to ship out the wasters and losers.

    Mind you, Chelsea could be without a coach, Hazard and access to the transfer market soon. That would be a very big problem.

    MR –

    When aren’t the bin-dipping welfare monkeys unbearable?

  7. PVR –

    I doubt you’ve heard of Dr Feelgood. Think blue collar, clubs and bars. They’re from my part of the world and I saw them loads of times. Great sweaty value every time. Milk and Alcohol is three of your finest rock n roll minutes. Try these –

  8. Mind you, Chelsea could be without a coach, Hazard and access to the transfer market soon. That would be a very big problem.

    Yes Pete, Chelsea have so little class that Sarri might get sacked despite getting us from sixth to third (ahead of the Sperz), losing the League Cup final to Man Citeh on penalties and winning the Europa League.

    Hazard will be sold for £100 million and the transfer ban will prevent any quick fix replacements. The future lies with Hudson-Odi, Loftus-Cheek and several of the players out on loan. The transfer ban could save the club from itself, but the owner needs to decide if he wants to stick or twist. If he’s not prepared to invest in the new stadium (we need to go from 42,000 to 60,000 like the Sperz) he should sell to someone who will.

  9. cool no never heard of them, but I like it.

    for those in the states.

  10. Go Chelsea

  12. I had always heard of Dr Feelgood but it’s clear now how little I knew about them as I always thought they were a U.S. band. I think I was just going by the name which sounds American. I was probably getting them mixed up with Dr Hook !

  13. Canvey Island boys Colm.

  14. A fat bird in West Ham knickers and white stilettos while watching Love Island is less Essex than Dr Feelgood.

    Peter –

    Those young boys desperately need playing time. They’re good enough, but Chelsea isn’t a patient club. Maybe the transfer ban will be a blessing in disguise. Real Madrid is desperate. They need to show the fans good news very quickly. I’d hold out for £150 million-ish. Neymar went for a lot more than that, and Hazard is better than Neymar.

    Superb.

  16. Pete

    Are they the sort of birds you try and chat up 😉

  17. I had always heard of Dr Feelgood but it’s clear now how little I knew about them as I always thought they were a U.S. band.

    When I heard this……I would swear that it was a US band: IT HAD TO BE!!! Even their name was American. Of course, the Alabama 3 turned out to be from Glasgow and south Wales:

    There will NEVER be an opening for a TV show that I’ll love more than this.
    I had the series on DVD, and watched every single episode at least five times each. Every single time I watched an episode, I watched the opening theme song in it’s entirety.
    It just didnt feel right if i didnt.
    So badass, sexy, and cool. Just, the perfect opening for a great show.

    Anyway, classical music isn’t dead – today’s Mozarts and Mendelsohns are found in other places…….

    When i hear this, i think only of the northern nature; The vast forests of Canada, the mountains, cliffs, waterfalls and stave churches of Norway, the geysers and hot springs of Iceland, the seemingly never ending land stretches of Russia, and the treeless tundra where the world ends… This music encompasses all of the Nordic winter; Harsh, merciless, cold and empty and yet full of beauty, melancholy and minimalism.

  18. I’d hold out for £150 million-ish. Neymar went for a lot more than that, and Hazard is better than Neymar.

    Yes Pete, but Hazard’s contract is finished in 12 months. £100 million is good enough.

  19. here ya go Colm…..

  20. Nice link Allan. It reminds me of this, very relaxing from Arvo Part (Estinia guy):

  22. This was used in Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon. It was wriitten by Schubert about 1820 and Barry Lyndon is set in the 1750s. But whatever, enjoy. The film is well worth paying for if you haven’t seen it.

  24. Peter – indeed, Arvo Part is top quality

  25. It’s my understanding that the Alabama 3 are from South London however yes, I can fully understand that it’s thought they are American :

  26. It’s my understanding that the Alabama 3 are from South London

    They teamed up there and by bad timing, the Glasgow bloke who wrote the theme tune to The Sopranos died a few days ago…..

    Jake Black obituary
    Co-founder of the band Alabama 3 whose track Woke Up This Morning became the theme tune of The Sopranos

    Alabama 3 are an unconventional band and their singer and songwriter, Jake Black, who has died aged 59, bore no resemblance to a conventional pop star. Black (who was also known as the Very Reverend D Wayne Love) co-founded the group with Rob Spragg (alias Larry Love) in London in the mid-1990s, basing it on their shared fondness for country music and techno.

    They were not from Alabama – Black was from Glasgow and Spragg from South Wales – and while they began as a duo, Alabama 3 is a loose construct likely to number about nine once onstage. “Alabama 3 is very much a collective and Jake was a major philosophical grandee of the band,” said Spragg. “He was always impressed by the collectivisation of what you could do with music. Jake was self-educated but also very streetwise, which made him such an interesting character.”

    But that theme tune – it’s Tony Soprano, all the way…..
