May Day

As has now become traditional at CCM (ie. second year running), and indeed at several other blogs, we celebrate May Day by paying homage to the new Queen of Rockabilly Ms Imelda May.
Today we are going back to her 2008 album Love Tattoo with the fabulous Johnny Got a Boom Boom.

As well as the Irish this year we also involve some Canadians as Arcade Fire bid us a somewhat noisy welcome to the Month of May.
Who knows, the thermals could even get put away shortly.
Off to wash my face in the morning dew assuming  I can chip of the ice

Imelda May - Johnny Got a Boom Boom

Arcade Fire - Month of May


  1. Just thinking how bloody cold it is today. More like February than May. Imelda is awesome, isn't she. Brilliant live performer. Saw her live while she was promoting Love Tattoo. It was a few days after Lux Interior of the Cramps had passed, so she did a tribute to him.

  2. It's bloody boiling round here. Shorts and sandals! Did you ever see Imelda May and Mike Sanchez in concert many years ago?

    1. I saw her at the Wah Wah hut on that tour Robster she was very good. Did a great cover version of Can't Hardly Stand It.
