Kid Creole and the Coconuts "Welcome to the lifeboat party"



Saw the concert at Hammersmith Odeon. Girlfriend at the time promised me I'd go home single if "I didn't put my eyes back in my f*****ing head and stop staring at those sluts" when the Coconuts came on.

The Kid came on , with Coati mundi doing his mad woman's sh*t thing and every female in da hous' got moist. Didn't hear her complaining then , oh no.

Don't you mean Benny Goodman?

And you haven't heard it until you've heard it played by a 300-strong marching band in front of 98,000 people. (Can send you an MP3 if you want.)

Heresy! The only recording to have is the 1938 Carnegie Hall performance.

Nobody should go to their grave without hearing Frank Zappa's rapturous quartet, Society pages-I'm a beautiful guy- beauty knows no pain-Charlie's enormous mouth, as played in a oner on "You can't do that on stage anymore, vol. 3"

Point conceded.

On another note: The Stereophonics (when they weren't pants) at the Whisky a Go Go in Oct '99. Just 3 months after going to their "homecoming" gig in Morfa Stadium in Swansea with 40,000 other punters, I caught them in a club on Sunset Blvd in West Hollywood with a capacity crowd of 250. I swear they had the same sound system because my high range hearing hasn't been the same since. 8)

Some older Arrsers may know, some may have forgotten, but - I suspect - most won't know of Viv Stanshall's "Sir Henry at Rawlinson End"; they should.



Worms and wigglies slumbered deep, and stirred not a bit, as didn't dead Mr. Cumberpatch who, like all Rawlinsons or favoured servants, was buried upright in the Victory Garden. "No sense in wasting space", said Henry, "bags of calcium and goodness in the buggers. You should've seen my sprouts when Baron Tostoff, the ruined Pole, kicked it."
The room darkened, as a hang glider passed across the sun. "Seems a novel enough way to commit suicide", observed Henry. "Pass me m' pistol, and I'll see if I can't bring the blighter down into the lake."
An absolute classic.

Crabby, send please! It has to be one of the most iconic compositions ever to my mind.

What's this 1938 version?

Next song for your listening delight

A la Claire Fontaine from the album Prose Combat by MC Solaar , that some might remember from the Kronenbourg advert a couple of years ago (2 lipstick lesbians in the bar) . Dark , dirty fantastic bass beat and my dance record of choice when 'tired and emotional'

C'est fantastique. lot of other MC Solaar stuff is pretty good too if you like Phat bass and clever rythms..

The Russian National Anthem, get it here

http://www.hymn.ru/index-en.html

Recommend the Red Army Choir version or the official state version.

How the Facistski ever thought they were going to knock over a country with a theme tune like that defeats me.. :)

I used to quote Henry to my crew; "Well you're supposed to love me!". Dunno if they understood.

Black sabbath by Black Sabbath. When you hear the opening notes of that song you realise just how powerful music can be. It made the hairs on my neck stand up the first time i heard it. I reccomend the basement recordings that can be found on "The Ozzman Cometh" to be the darkest.
