Dogs Of War - The Sensational Alex Harvey Band

With Ratko Mladic now in custody and awaiting trail in The Hauge, we start the months vinyl's with the theme of 'War'. My first choice is from The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, the track is 'Dogs Of War', from the album SAHB Stories. Released in 1976 the L|P included the hit single 'The Boston Tea Party' that was in the charts 35 years ago this month. We was lucky enough to have seen SAHB at Charlton Football ground in 76 were they upstaged the top of the bill act 'The Who' at this all day one stage festival.

Fascist Dictator - The Cortinas

To start June’s tunes of this month I have picked a good piece of old school punk from the Cortinas. This originally came out in 1977 on the Step Forward label. I still own this slice of vinyl and bought as I did many of my punk singles of Chelmsford Market. Any way the reason for picking this track is because I was quite pleased to hear the other day, that , that vile piece of human excrement was arrested for war crimes, Ratko Mladic. The man who killed 8000 people at one sitting in Bosnia. I don’t want to talk much about this man, just that I am glad he has been caught and gets all the retribution he deserves.

Any way this is a good song enjoy

The House That Jack Built - Aretha Franklin

This Saturday we are off to see the fantastic Jackie Wilson Says at Hullbridge’s, Touchline Club. They are a soul band playing along the lines of 60’s Atlantic and Stax songs with a bit of JB thrown in. They have always played the house that Jack built, they probably wont this time and make a liar of me. But this track from the Queen of Soul will give you a good idea of what to expect

Hate and War- The Clash

From their classic debut album this track shows all that is best about Punk Rock fast, furious and all over in 2 minutes. As for MLADIC the way the the Hague works he will probley be dead before the trial happens, is that justice for the victims and their famlies who nows. Prehaps the Yanks had the right idea with Bin Laden it seemed to make their citizens happy.

Tin Soldier - Small faces

This is a great track from the 60's which is covered by one of Chelmsford Rocks favourite bands Junior Jump. I remember the first time I saw Junior Jump a the rear of Hylands House and this was one of their stand out tracks. As for the Small Faces in my opinion one of the best bands from the sixties with Steve MARRIOT a great front man. I'm not sure whether Jackie Wilson Says does this track but hope they do for all those going too see them Saturday.

Shot with his Own Gun - Elvis COSTELLO

One of the less reported items about MLADIC was that hs daughter has recently commited suicide by shooting her self with his pistol. He prehaps now can feel the pain that that his weapon has caused thousands of others, it would have prehaps been better if he had turned it on his self.

Eleven Plus Eleven - Nine Beow Zero
Now for a bit of self indulgence and a count down to retirement 11 months to go, and a good excure to play a great tune
The Thin Line Between Love and Hate - The Persuaders

Another song for those people in the eastern Europe. Since the wall came down and freedom was given to the oppressed folk of these places, it seems they couldn’t handle it. Every tinpot dictator didn’t have to try very hard to stir unrest and have neighbour kill neighbour. For this I have picked a soul masterpiece which has also been covered by the Prentenders and Annie Lennox as well many others. A great song which I first heard on Radio One in the 70’s. I can’t remember who they were interviewing, but they had a series on, when they interviewed famous Pop Stars, it might even have been David Bowie. But anyway they had to give their top ten songs and this was one of them and it has always stuck in my mind. A beautiful song. Another song that I remember from this series was Question Mark and the Mysterions “96 tears.” That was definitely Bowie.
