Here are all of gingercls's jams.
by The Ravishing Beauties
I have fond memories of this, but now can't make my mind up. My lovely wife says it reminds her of the child who sings 'The Snowman'. It was originally on the 'Mighty Reel' cassette which came free with the NME in 1982. Anyway my dear son has his English Literature GCSE and this Wilfred Owen poem is in the anthology he's studying. Moving and infuriating.

by Robert Wyatt
Happy 70th birthday Robert Wyatt. A true 'post 1945 musical genius' (copyright @bukowski). From 1974, with the classic pencil drawn sleeve.

by George Jones
In all seriousness the year just gone really was. In this from 1970, George had other things on his mind, but yearning, he couldn't think of anything else to say.

by The Crossfires
Tough, rough, ragged garage sounds from 1963. The Crossfires were shortly to become The Turtles whence their style changed regularly, culminating with, 'Happy Together', in 1967. But this was 1963!

by Elvis Costello
We went to hear Richard Balls speaking about his book 'Be Stiff: The Stiff Records Story'. Brought back some great memories. This song was catalogue number BUY 11. It was written after Costello had watched an unrepentant Oswald Mosley on tv. The lp was SEEZ 3. 1977

by Small Faces
I just heard about the death of Ian McLagan. Only 69. This track demonstrates the power of his keyboard playing and the originality of it, certainly in 1969. A very sad loss.

Brazil meets Bristol in dub. Atmospheric, odd, original and out there. 2009..

by Mingus Big Band
On the day creepy, right wing extremists UKIP gain another seat in the British parliament, this warning from history. It uses the words of Martin Niemöller describing the methods of the Nazis. 1999

by The Slits
The Slits pastiche love song and some great footage from the time. Reading Viv Albertine's book has brought it all back.

by Barbara Pittman
Recorded in 1956 when she was 18, there's "more rock and roll in these three minutes of passionate dishevelment than the combined catalogues of Aerosmith and Motley Crue" as Bob Stanley says in his great book 'Yeah Yeah Yeah'. ..... #yeahyeahyeah
