Just recently watched Point Blank (1967). Lee was a cool toughie.

that material didn't seem to suit Leonard Cohen at all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/8/19 9:35am Kudubundu:

I hated this Lee Marvin track so much when I was 16! Now I love it so much. How I have changed eh? PS The local record manufacturer dumped a few thousand copies of this 7" on our rubbish dump in 1970 and I happily enjoyed trashing the lot with my "cool" friends. Now I deeply regret it. I didn't even keep one copy for posterity. Sad.

‘Stones’ got me thinking about similes and metaphors. A web crawl yielded a very nice pop song https://youtu.be/uoSBVNUO2LU . Give it a listen sometime Joe!

Then , get this. Per grammarly.com , “...metaphors directly state a comparison—‘Love is a battlefield.’ “ Whoa!

Very neat Joe. The Dadaists would be proud. I think Brian Eno also used a typewriter as an instrument on a track.

  Mon. 7/8/19 9:54am Brendan:

Thanks Joe, thats a good endorsement- I’ll give it a read. I ‘m sorry I didn’t give similes equal time so here’s a cringeworthy one. ‘Fly like an eagle’.

I vaguely remember another typewriter ensemble from earlier WFMU shows. From Africa I think. But I can't remember the country

this cover is hilarious...for some reason it reminds me of Holland Dozier songs...

The sexy Pistols

I tried to play this version of Pretty Vacant for a friend once. She couldn't. Even. I bloody love it.

Wow. I've been half-listening at my desk here and just realized we've been hearing Sex Pistols covers for the past 10 min. or so.

Hi Jo and everybody! We need more Pistols done in jazz brunch style.
Avatar Mon. 7/8/19 11:36am βrian:

I remember a great cover of Pretty Vacant from one of Rob's premiums

Now this should have been on Chipmunk Punk (keep the Billy Joel though)!

They should do a catholic girls cover
Avatar Mon. 7/8/19 11:39am Roberto:

Wow, someone actually thought of this within a year of the initial release of Bollocks.

I've been trying to resist posting, but Punky and Porky must be noted. #heliumoverdose

Fred, I’d remember that myself but I’m Pretty Vacant
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/8/19 11:42am Jeff Moore:

These are a hoot.

Yeah, actually my first experience of hearing easy-listening Sex Pistols (aside from their own satiric effort) was from a band playing to amuse a seaside patio brunch crowd in Brighton around the year 2000. It caused a little shock of recognition that (a) those songs had actually been around awhile by then, and (b) sure, that can be done to any song.

Wasn't their last song a No Fun cover? www.rollingstone.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/8/19 11:42am Rich in Washington:

@Roberto: there's at least one disco cover of a Pistols' track that was within a year or two of the album coming out, and not made by anyone affiliated with them (Malcom, et al).
  Mon. 7/8/19 11:43am prudy:

any song by Joan Jett makes me happy...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/8/19 11:43am fred:

I've used the "Don't know what I want but I know how to get it" line a few times over the years as a job description as a dev. Few people get it, it's an old man reference
  Mon. 7/8/19 11:44am frenchee:

Joan Jett singing British sounds very Courtney Barnett to these 'murrican ears

i heard the original anarchy in the uk over the weekend and I remarked on how it sounds like pure bubble gum pop to me now, which I suppose is only a testament to its influence

Must people always assume that someone has died whenever a DJ plays a bunch of songs by or ade famous by an artist! Just because Joe played a few Joao Gilberto songs earlier... Oh, wait.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/8/19 11:52am adampsyche:

@Asheville not that I've heard but that didn't stop Station Manager Ken from opening a set with like 17 covers of No Fun and as far as I know Iggy Pop lives

@garthgoape ...Hybrid Kids (Punky & Porky) was Morgan Fisher doing a bunch of personas....does a great "Wuthering Heights" ...as Jah Wurtzel.
