The Wombles were utterly brilliant and that song was on Radio 2 this afternoon.

This is the classic though.

Pitter patter, postman patter, ostrich natter, doesn't matter.

Populism, !0cc's of jism,

Doodle oodle Islamism.

None the wiser?

Get down on your boogiariser.

Intense, even by their standards.

AutoPlay led me to:

who I'll investigate further, so thanks for that!

Laughing out loud

Very Tony Blackburn.

(Print is quite small, but final track of the album is The Wombles - The Orinoco Kid.)

Yes,it does sound interesting.Italian,apparently.
Mezzanine is excellent.
I see Terry Scott's "My Brother" was on the Blackburn record.That's a surprise.

Yes it was hearing it on radio 2 that prompted me to post it on the "What are you listening to now" thread.

I was born & bred in Wimbledon and "Remember You're A Womble" was a favourite chant from the Plough Lane Terraces in the mid-70s.

Picked up a cd of Mezzanine for 50p a while ago - need to give it another spin. First 4 tracks are on the Collected compilation album that I also have. Can't really go wrong with Massive Attack.

The Junior Choice album has quite a few unusual/novelty artists.

Chromatics are American (Seattle/Portland), and after researching it, have been on the Italians Do It Better record label (Portland based) since 2007. Original bassist, from 2001-3, Michelle DaRosa, sounds Italian. They seem to mix electronic instrumentals with Dream Pop.

Listening to some of my collection I picked the album "What does it take to win your love" by Junior Walker then next to it the Walker Brothers story.

Can't complain. :)

Played Mezzanine again last night. great album. Teardrop is a classic song. Think I still prefer 100th Window though - like it's more chilled vibe, and the sequencing is exquisite.

What's Australia like for charity shops and cd/vinyl bargains, and your neck of the woods in particular?

Unfortunately not much around here.There are a few OP Shops.(It's what Aussies call charity shops and it's short for opportunity)If there is a music selection it will consist mainly of Abba,Queen, John Farnham, etc....
I have to browse Ebay or Gumtree.

John Farnham like so many Aussie legends was born in the UK.

Charity shop purchases reminds me of a box of assorted tapes I bought for a pound.
Not much in it but this was :) I had to wait until everyone went out before I could play it.

Great stuff! Hard to think of The Fall without thinking of John Peel yet again.

He called the The Mighty Fall for some reason? I knew he liked them but why that adjective?

The "I Dream Of Jeanie" theme in my head. I'm also picturing Barbara Eden in her little belly-dancing outfit.

Up late again. :)

"Mighty" has a footy vibe to it, and Peely was crazy about Liverpool FC, so that's my guess.

Don't forget Larry Hagman. (I did.)

A couple of HAIM songs in Live Lounge.
