I am T.S. Eliot

This is the way the blog ends.
This is the way the blog ends.
This is the way the blog ends.
Not with a bang but a whimper.

Or perhaps not.  But it will come in dribs and drabs.

Let’s start with last Monday and the Arrogant Worms and a wonderful departure for them with a song more about philosophy than humour.  Didn’t you know they could be so deep?  Well, really, they Kant.

Next up is that band I saw before Melvin and I got to see Buddy Guy.  No youtube there, but it’s Warehouse covering this song. They still need more internet presence. (duck)

Last Wednesday was a little band out of England called The Thamesmen.  They released this ditty back in 1964 (pretty impressive since I don’t tend to have a lot of mouldy goldies on my iPod).  I’m not really sure what really happened to the Thamesmen, to be honest.  They seemed to blow up to statospheric proportions and then fell to earth and combusted like a drummer.  Rumours have it that they re-formed again five or six years ago as a band called “The Folksmen”, but despite the similarities of name, I really disbelieve the rumour is true.  Nonetheless, this is a song that I used to sing to my daughter when she was a wee one and she bumped a shin or fell over skating or something similar and it would make her laugh and laugh a thousand times over.

Last Thursday had Tim Vesely’s band the Violet Archers.  Love these guys, it’s wonderful to hear Tim making such cool music.  You only get a taste in this one, but it’s worth something.

More to come later.
