    The Smother Brothers start by sending up a Gilbert and Sullivan song, and this degenerates into an hilarious duel between guitar and piano. Funny and well played too ….

    48,768 78rpm records digitised & free on-line (listen or download). From 1901 to 1966. Jazz, swing, blues, rock n roll, classical, shows, easy listening ... Louis Armstrong & Noel Coward rub shoulders with Jerry Lee Lewis & Gracie Fields. I even spotted a Linguaphone Short Irish Course, Lessons 1-4.

    Not right now, but this evening I will be listening to the Manic Street Preachers at the O2 Academy in Birmingham.

    Interesting support act as well, 'Gwenno', whose first album was in Welsh (with one track in Cornish) and second entirely in Cornish, including this:

    A little bit of Gerry Cinnamon as a result of the neighbours playing it in their back garden tonight. Not bad.

    Goodbye Scotland.

    @Roland doesn't care, because he's ahead of the curve.

    Beautiful piece of music used by Ken Burns as the theme for his powerhouse documentary on the American Civil War.

    They never disappoint. Used to love them because of the sum of their parts Fat Mike particularly but then just enjoyed their covers. Goodbye Earl is a favourite.

    Everything used to be better
    When books were still made of paper
    All nights used to be longer
    And beer still contained alcohol
    Everyone used to find a job
    We still had real money
    Banks weren’t yet broke
    We used own the world…
    Chorus:
    Finally let go of yesterday
    Drink to a better time!
    Up the cups, let us celebrate
    Yesterday died today
    Nothing used to be better
    If you think so – you’re an idiot.
    Everything used to better
    All women used to be beautiful
    All men used to be tough
    And p.o.r.n was still obscene
    Days used to be longer
    Summer was always hot
    All skirts were shorter
    And ice melted in your drink…
    (Chorus)
    Everything used to be better
    Rock concerts used to be loud
    Songs used to be bought
    And music wasn’t yet stolen…
    Everyone used to be nicer
    Sometimes compliments from your boss
    The pope used to be catholic
    And in heaven there used to be dope…
