I wanna drink - Mick Farren

July is always a good month as it always hosts Chelmsford best event of the year. The Beer Festival, it’s a great social event, over 350 different beers, a little bit of music and just a good time. I have picked Mick Farrens “I Wanna Drink” to celebrate this homage to the hop. A good song with Wilko Johnson and Larry Wallis supporting the ex Deviant. You can get it on “Goodbye Nashville hello Camden Town” a pub rock anthology.

Gotta Get Away - Stiff Little Fingers

It’s holiday time again and I am off soon. So I have picked some Northern Irish punk from the fantastic Stiff Little Fingers. I know it’s a song about getting away from drudgery and the life in 70’s Belfast, but I will be humming it to my self as I leave leafy Essex and set off for an all inclusive binge of beer and Mahitas.

I drink Alone - George Thorogood and the Destroyers

Not only is this a great track in my humble opinion you can forget Queen, Paul McCartney, Duran Duran etc the highlight of Band Aid was George Thorogood. It was a toss up between this track and One Bourbon One Scotch One Beer in honour of the forthcoming Chelmsford Beer Festival but I opted for this as Automatic Slim play a good version of this and they are playing the Kelvedon Free Music Fesitval on 9th July. Rock on Tim.

Sea and Sand - The Who

Probley the best album the Who recorded and an iconic film, nice to see a young Leslie Ash without a trout pout being taken up a dark alley. Although this album is littered with great tracks 5:15, Real Me, Dr Jimmy I think this is my favourite show casing Daltry's range, and he's a Gooner.

Down on Terminal Street - Be Bop Deluxe

I knew I shouldn't have mentioned Gooners it's only gone and depressed me since moving from Avenal Road we have moved to Terminal Street, still who needs Nasri, Fabregas, Clichy when we have managed to keep Denilson, Eboue, Bendtner. Keep the faith I'm sure there is a master plan for us to take over the world. 'In Arsene we trust'

Good Morning Little School Girl - Ten Years After

Ten months and counting.

Dream Weaver Gary Wright

Going back to 1975 with Gary Wright and the title track from the LP Dream Weaver, one of those good old songs that was played on Radio Caroline. Reminds me of escaping lifes everyday worries and stress, a bit like going on holiday to get away from it all.

“I've just closed my eyes again Climbed aboard the dream weaver train Driver take away my worries of today And leave tomorrow behind”

Soon be my turn to close my eyes and get on that dream weaver train.

News Of The World - The Jam

Is all I can say is "Don't buy the Sun either"

Maurice Hyde July 2011

The News Of The World a hit single for the Jam in 1978.


Power! Pop!
Read about the things that happen throughout the world
Don't believe in everything you see or hear
The neighbours talk day in day out about the goings on
They tell us what they want, they don't give an inch
Look at the pictures taken by the camera - they cannot lie
The truth is in what you see not what you read
Little men tapping things out - points of view
[ Find more Lyrics on

Remember their views are not the gospel truth
Each morning our piece of the world comes through the door
More often it's just a comic, not much more
Don't take it too serious - not many do
Read between the lines and you'll find the truth
Don't believe it all - a' find out for yourself
Check before you spread
News of the world, news of the world
Never doubt, never ask
Never moan, never search
Never find, never know
The news of the world, news of the world
Read all about it, read all about it - news of the world
