AKA “The Film Special”…
… in which Tom reveals the real reason he wanted to do this soundtrack-themed special, Trick nurses a hangover, the merits of fake film bands are discussed, the duo forget the name of a certain Bond film and much fine music is played inbetween times.
With music from the likes of Sven Libaek, Bill Conti, King Curtis, Monty Norman, Roland Alphonso, Pink Floyd (!) and even the appearance of those mad dramatic synth stab moments from Teen Wolf, this is, well, more of the same from our laconic (ha!) pair…
It has to be said, when it comes to special guests we have all the luck of Spinal Tap’s drummers. This week we were meant to be joined by Sean and Finny from Pama Intl, currently supporting The Specials on tour… but sadly things weren’t going our way (again!) and the lads couldn’t make it in. Hence, we hastily put together a show which, in hindsight, turned out pretty damn well if we do say so ourselves.
Taking in much reggae (thanks in part to my scoring a lovely cache of Jamaican 45s from a dealer), we also swerve into “you know the name but you won’t know this” territory with a discofied re-edit of Mott The Hoople and a truly sublime blues track from the Peter Green-era Fleetwood Mac. Factor in a fastchat special from Tom and a fine, funky cover of “Sunshine of your Love” and you’ve got much to enjoy, trust us…
