MUSIC

RIDE 'EM, COWBOY!

More music from a Spaghetti Western that does not exist. This weeks offering is a cautionary tale of love, betrayal and bloody revenge...

LEAVE ME ALONE

This weeks slice of cool sixties punk is a rare example of a US garage band covering a British hit.

POSERS

PRINCESS CHARLOTTE'S PROBLEM

LAST WEEK'S POSER

Someone has kindly responded to my appeal for a transcription of the lyrics to Zouzou’s yéyé classic Ne cherche pasSacré bleu! 

RUSSIAN LITERATURE

SNOW

The first part of one of Paustovskys typically subtle yet evocative short stories. 

MAD MEN

NEWSJACKING, FIFTIES STYLE

The story of how one of the original ‘Mad Men’ jumped on the back of a hot news story and turned it into a classic piece of advertising.
