Diddy Wah Diddy

Diddy Wah Diddy

by Captain Beefheart

My 5th jam and now my 144th. Capt. Beefheart's first single and a cover of a Bo Diddley song. The good Captain looks a bit awkward here, miming on a beach. 1966.

Futility

Futility

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.
