I don't know that much about them cranston, I was late getting into them. There's a bit of the state of Britain in there, (post) punk type observations(?). Personally I just love those beats!
Post punk, Mods > Post Jam ?

My mate hadn't told me that it was an outdoor gig we were going too, so that was great. Was at Heaton park. Est 35,000 people, mostly middle age, though good section of young people all down the front.
Hot chip played first. Really good sound, excellent drums and keyboards. Got everyone dancing. Then DJs played some excellent eletronica, we were in our element. New order were ok. Still got that feeling after a while of same, samey. It's just not the same without hooky.

Was up the ladder yesterday pruning the Ti tree being eaten alive by effen mozzies listening to this favourite album 'Pirates' from 1981.
Many a great song on that album. She's a lovely voice singing Tommy Waits.

You have a titanium tree? I bet you prune it with an angle grinder!

Rongwrong, which I'd assumed ever since I first heard it in 1986 or 87 was simply a pun, I've just discovered was actually a Dadaist magazine produced in New York by Marcel Duchamp and a few collaborators. Only ever produced one issue though. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rongwrong

Amazing how lyrics lodge in the back of one's memory. I haven't listened to this since probably the late 90s – used to have a tape somewhere – but as soon as I started listening, back they came.
