I don't know whether I'm talking nonsense here but,"The Hounds of Love" was supposed to have been inspired by the classic Brit horror "Night of the Demon"

You not talking nonsense, John.

On the album and the single, the first lines, "It's in the trees! It's coming!" are sampled from the film "Night of the Demon".

CAN could be described like this as well.

Can popped up on the soundtrack for the recent episode of Guilt (BBC 2) I was watching.

Haha. I have 20 minutes until tomorrow to pick out some 60s/70s stuff that is so deliberately drippy that it will cause a revolution, The clever bit here is I love them all and wouldn't dare to be this offensive if I had to show my real name:

Splinter - Costafine Town

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBkQ6kzissM

(A minor hit : most don't recall it - As the posts say, there was a George Harrison input but key is they were South Shields and it is my beloved, (probably overly) romanticised Newcastle although my links are to north side - oh - those photos)

Drupi - Vado Via

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6DAXYVIYXM

(A UK singles hit - we had just joined the EEC, a few were on packaged holidays, for the rest of us, mysterious)

Lambert and Nuttycombe - Bird Song

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54VQgQSfNfk

(Sadly not known in the UK then : one early death - it took the likes of me in the 2000s to dig it out and rave) :)

Pearls Before Swine - Another Time

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wPIsXO9utw

(Similar although I sense it was a bigger act : too early for me, amazing strange vocals, a bona fide classic rarity)

I heard Paul Ross and Sam Stevens talking about Bob Lind yesterday - it was an anniversary celebration and they played a bit of the great Elusive Butterfly on Talksport describing it as wonderfully Glen Campbell-esque while asking if there was anything else from him. OMG, was there, Paul and Sam - love you so dearly - I am gifting you this breath taking beauty:

Bob Lind - Drifter's Sunrise

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aqm1HMFn1bE

Go on.......radio is pretty crap......I know my radio history like few do and the word Ross doesn't always do it for me.

But they are back on at 1am. Paul's great. Young-ish Sam's radio through and through. They go wider than sport.

Try them, :)

Pure - does this still happen? - radio joy. In memory of Peel, Cooke, Robinson, Maskell and especially my hero Roger Scott. Died way too early at 48 -and once I had caught up with his long estranged son in Canada, uncannily similar sounding if wilder and gone "wow history repeats", he suddenly died too and even younger. As in within two months. Totally gutted.

NĂ©rija - Unbound (Live at Total Refreshment Centre)

They were on Jools a few weeks ago, but they seem more relaxed and in the groove in this clip.
