'Song To The Siren' by This Mortal Coil: who were also known as The Cocteau Twins, recorded this earthy, atmospheric, and very emotional song, which is guaranteed to give most listener's a shiver down the spine; my friend, Barb, especially, no doubt. Richard Harris' did it for her yesterday, but she had only heard Donna Summer's version before. Mr. Harris, of course, was the original and the master version.


Mick Farren: 'Rude Brittania' started with the first episode at 9pm last evening on BBC4 TV. Part 2 is on tonight, and our buddy, Mick, will be on there tomorrow (Wednesday 16th) talking about the 'Nasty Tales' comic and the 'It' obscenity trial of the 70's. Well worth watching anyway, and catch up on the BBC iplayer if you missed one or more. It's all about us rude Brit's, and how comic art and other forms of media captured our farting and belching, peeing and pooing past through the years.
