Enjoy the Schmenge Brothers version of this.

I never thought to look for a soundtrack to the Last Polka
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15am mauri:

Estonian is somewhat similar. It sounds really funny to me. Once I thought a group talking were from somewhere with a really strange dialect cause I couldnt understand them. finally realized they were estonian.

Sorry Mauri just turned you into an Estonian dog.

Eugene Levy is quite an accordion player. There's a YouTube of the Last Polka, as you know, Bill. Candy cracks me up every time I watch it.

Agreed, ausmanx.

With the exception of Unconditionally Guaranteed and Bluejeans and Moonbeams of course
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08am Stanley:

Sexton Ming sounds just like he oughta with that name. Not unlike the vibe our friend, the Brother has. Think its great.
Avatar 7:09am Brian in UK:

@ausmanx G'day. "I am on the side of angels and dirt" SS.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11am Stanley:

Bill, I had pretty much wiped those two from memory but 'Upon the My Oh My' from Unconditionally Guaranteed is quite okay.
Avatar 7:13am Bill Mac:

I used to like Peaches on that one. I understand the band liked it until they heard the mix. It was as they say the last straw...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15am Stanley:

Ma Kelly's Greasy Spoon - nice revisit. I tried in vain to locate a 'greasy spoon' of yore, in Luton a while back. But to no avail. Ended up in Costa with a toasted panini and a latte. My, have times changed.
  7:16am Cooh John:

Monkees in the morning. All is right with the world. Good morning everyone. Hey Billy Mac, How about an extra z for me?
Avatar 7:17am Bill Mac:

Hey John, I could use a few extras meself
Avatar 7:19am Bill Mac:

Weird though, we were watching the Monkees on TV and that song came on, it immediately reminded me of that Quo tune. Underrated album too, before they went full on boogie....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20am Ken From Hyde Park:

Soggy greetings from the Mid-Hudson Valley. It rained a bit overnight and it is mucho humid outside now.
  7:21am Cooh John:

Nice segue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22am ausmanx:

stanley, found a fantastic greasy spoon down a back street in morecambe a month ago. it was choice, even the plastic tablecloths were authentic. i took photos of the food when it came out. and the whole bill came to about seven pounds. good evening, brian!
Avatar 7:24am Bill Mac:

A terrific flub, Stanley...
  7:24am Cooh John:

I knew this as the girl watchers theme for Tab, I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25am Stanley:

Far out ausmanx. My fave order in the East End back in the day was double bacon, sausage egg beans and double bubble.
Avatar 7:28am Bill Mac:

Point goes to Cooh John, I was trying to remember what that song was advertising.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29am joeray:

As long as you don't have to drink it (Tab)!!!
Avatar 7:31am Bill Mac:

Never had the pleasure JR!
  7:32am Cooh John:

Never did, joeray. But I watched the girls...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33am joeray:

Much safer to watch the girls...I think!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34am joeray:

I tried Tab as a kid back in the early 60's and still have an aftertaste in my mouth!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35am Stanley:

Love psychedelic jammy sandwiches too.

I'm loving this stuff out on Tee Pee. Matt Warwick played Harsh Toke the other day.

Hungrily munching on inferior pastries at the moment...
Avatar 7:46am Brian in UK:

Not a vegetarian but double eggs, chips and beans is a favourite, with a buttered slice. And ofcourse a large mug (no sugar)
Avatar 7:46am Bill Mac:

Some nice heavy throwback stuff on that label
Avatar 7:48am Brian in UK:

Just made a white potato loaf, it makes wonderful toast after a couple of days.

Hi Brian. I was thrown out of a greasy spoon once for continually playing 'Ruby' by Kenny Rogers on the jukebox. I was warned twice but couldn't control myslef.

Clicky star for Eno, who is important! Fripp is important also.
Avatar 8:12am Brian in UK:

The card I am reading says stand on a poodle and count backwards from 1000 in Spanish to fully appreciate the Eno.

counting backwards in Portuguese is even better

We caught a very small crab on the beach once our youngest daughter named him Colin. No body was drownded so we all went home.

Sem, you will be laughing out loud, might be best to avoid public places when reading. Or maybe not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18am ausmanx:

i've just never got Wodehouse. i assume this means i'm not actually English. a fair observation.

Avatar 8:26am Sem Chumbo:

@BiUK, I'll be affecting a plumy English accent whilst reading aloud, so public tut-tut-ing and finger-pointing is sure to follow.

I'm good with that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26am ausmanx:

the taking the piss is too affectionate. i think i prefer the blunt instrument. having just binge watched THE THICK OF IT, i think i am unutterably crude in my satirical taste
