Saturday Lucky Dip

"So, what lessons did you learn from Chappaquiddick Senator Kennedy?"

"Never drive over narrow bridges when you're off your face"

All of which probably has absolutely nothing  whatsoever to do with Chappaquiddick Skyline  one of the many incarnations of Joe Pernice who grace Uncut's Unconditionally Guaranteed 2000.4 with a splendid cover of New Order's Leave Me Alone.

Covers seem to be the order of the day as Joe and the boys are followed by Sonic's Rendezvous with a version of Chuck Berry's Sweet Little Sixteen which totally rocks.
Hardly surprising really given that the band contained Fred "Sonic" Smith from MC5 and Scott Asheton from The Stooges within their number.

  1. ....I am impressed with the Chappaquiddick Skyline track, although I suspect I have it upi the stairs. I have that Rainbow album, bought from John Menzies in Dundee. This is shaping up very nicely, records not played in 30 years. Good stuff.
