I'm just about to fly back to London from Chicago, tuned in to hear the Kinks (a long-time favourite song), a very London-oriented Who song I didn't know, and Chas and Dave, about as London as it gets...

btw, my avatar photo was taken in a cafe in Hackney in 1952, therefore also as London (and "cockney", although possibly not within earshot of Bow Bells) as it gets

If anyone outside Britain doesn't understand that picture of Pete (Townsend), see this: en.wikipedia.org...

what a lovely skewering of the most nakedly didactic single ever!

As the author of a book about number songs, I can say with authority that the greatest #19 song is by the Rolling Stones.

This set brings sweet joy to the cocklode of my heartstrings.
Avatar 2:39pm Kevin_Ringwood_ UK:

I've just noticed that N-N-Nineteen was on Oval records, which appears to be a real record company but can't be a coincidence (The Oval = the name of a large cricket ground in south London)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm Hughie Considine:

Now that was a world-class segue, Mr. Kurt. This is the best Bill Wyman single ever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

Well this one was inevitable...

Are the Small Faces going to make an appearance?
Avatar 2:43pm Kevin_Ringwood_ UK:

Stanley, if they do it has to be Lazy Sunday
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44pm Stanley:

@Kevin - it's all good. A most underated band, in my opinion. And from East Larndon
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

This isn't "US 80's-90's" Kurt, it's "Terry Waite Sez" (playlist error)
Both are excellent tho, so great outcome either way.

Yuss! London's finest

The Clash at the Palladium, the year before Bonds, was the best live show I've ever witnessed.

Stranglers, maybe?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm Stanley:

@Hughie - I caught them at the Rock against Racism gig in Victoria Park.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm Hughie Considine:

Prime gig, @Stanley. The sound + their way of taking over the stage was unforgettable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
