Stupidity - Solomon Burke

It’s that time of the year again, apple blossom time May, the nearest Friday to Lee Brilleaux birthday for his 18th Memorial show at where it all started, the Essex Riviera of Canvey Island. I haven’t got a clue who is playing at the show as you never find out till the night, but I am always sure of some fun, with good company and plenty of not very good beer, unless you go into the bar downstairs. I have picked the title track of one of the classic Feelgood albums “Stupidity.” This is the original from the late great Solomon Burke. I am looking forward to a super night so I hope you enjoy this slice of early 60’s soul.

I've Got News For You - Ray Charles.

On friday at the Blue Lion it was decided that this months theme would be Newspapers, but I have to admit I have really struggled, so I have goe for a Feelgood original with News in the title (a slight link). Still it fits in with next Friday at Canvey. This is a song that the Feelgoods covered on their 14h album in 1985 Mad Man Blues , not one of their best albums but all the same a good track. I thought I would go for the original by Ray CHARLES this is the only one I can find on the internet so ignore Johnny CARSON.

Raise Your Hand - Eddie Floyd

I can't beleive that that this Thursday we have to vote on how to vote, is there not more pressing things for parliament needs to spend their time on. Surely everything that is a competition is first past the post, people who don't vote shouldn't complain. Will we decided the premiership by the team who gets the most wins are the champions rather than the team with the most points, still who really cares. I think Mp's should be decided as in a trade union vote with a show of hands so with this in mind I have gone for Raise Your Hands by Eddie Floyd, this is also a favourite with the chaps when we see Junior Jump so enjoy.

Deliliah - Sensational Alex Harvey Band

What excuse do you need to put a bit of Harvey on Chelmsford Rocks, well I'm going for The Fa Cup Final and Stoke City's anthem. Nuff said.

Jack you Dead - Joe Jackson

Whilst compiling this months songs I heard the news that Bin Laden is dead, I'm not sure whether this is good or bad news, his place will be taken by someone else who maybe more radical, the allies didn't want to get rid of Hitler. So here goes a Joe Jackson song from his Jumpin Jive Album, make you're own mind up on what the future may now hold.

Perverts In The Sun - Iggy Pop

We came up with newspapers as a theme for this months and it is quite hard to find a record but after some thought I remembered this one from Iggy Pop . 'Perverts In the Sun' from the Album Scull Ring. The song has nothing to do with the Sun newspaper but its the sort of thing you could read about in the Sun., so that's why I choose this track. Having seen a truly brilliant performance from Iggy live at the V festival a few years ago I can only hope that we will get another chance to see him again soon.

Headline News - Edwin Starr

Extra, Extra, read all about it. The start of Edwin Starr’s pre Motown release about the new love that he has found. A wonderful song from the sadly departed agent 00 soul. A great track that is here to commemorate Maurice’s second article in a newspaper . Our local historian is doing the website proud.

News Of The World - The Jam

I feel a bit deprived as I never saw the Jam live, they were due to support The Clash on the white riot tour that came to Chelmsford but there was some sort argument over money and the Jam pulled out. However I have seen Paul Weller many times live and he headlined the first ever V festival at Hylands Park in 1996. Bruce Foxton and his band with Mark Brzeziccki called 'From The Jam' will be headlining the Brentwood Festival on Saturday 9th July 2011, a must for any Jam fans. I remember the Jam been on Top Of The Pops with 'News Of The World' in 78, it certainly made the programme worth watching .

Rich Kids - Rich Kids

As Colin picked a song for Stoke in the cup final, I felt I had to balance it out and do one for the Sheiks from Eastlands. What else could you have for the nouvieu (not sure if that is spelt right) rich. I am not sure who I want to win but probably Stoke’s anti football just pushes it towards City for me. Anyway enjoy Glen Matlock’s band after he left the Pistols with Midge Ure on vocals with this slice of rock from 79 which I have on red vinyl. I do believe they were the first band to be called Power Pop.

Bricks, Broken Bottles and Sticks - Dean Parish

It’s funny how you see things and a song pops into your head. I work in the City of London and the amount of buildings that have been demolished and are building sites now is amazing. It must be like just after the war in some places. I don’t know where the money comes from to do these new buildings, a tax fiddle I reckon. Anyway it is a good excuse to listen to this piece of blue eyed 60’s soul.
