(Eddy Clearwater – With thanks to tincanman for the picture)
OK, if I’m getting the hang of this, what follows are most of my best nominations so far this weekend. I’ve put in both versions of Easy Money even though RLJ has no chance of 2wks running, I’ve given you two of the Zutons songs as they’re so different. Katrina & The Waves original of Going Down To Liverpool is much meatier than The Bangles, and we’ll finish with Drive-By Truckers’ industrial strength riff for Buttholeville. RR Socialisers: note that I HAVEN’T nominated or posted Swiss-metallers Krokus’ Bedside Radio “Instead of going to the office, you’re leaving town!” Still wincing over putting that on my CD almost 12 months later.
