Burn Offerings 13
A veritable mixed bag for you today as we serve up Burnt Offerings 13.
We start with Australia's finest export and one of those superstars known the world over by their fist name.
Here Kylie gives us a live take on a Clash classic - one I should maybe have saved for a future Clash covered series perhaps?
Kylie Minogue - Should I Stay or Should I Go
Kylie is followed (as if anyone could follow Kylie) by an artist who has previously featured on these pages as a Drive- By Trucker. Today Patterson Hood is in solo mode and is Dead Drunk and Naked
His father David was the bassist in the legendary Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section
Patterson Hood - Dead Drunk and Naked
And finally we feature The Polyphonic Spree a choral rock band and wearers of white robes from Dallas fronted by the splendidly named Tim DeLaughter and a band which contains a multitude of members.
One of my few claims to fame is that I once saw them playing live in someone's front garden in Austin (it was a big garden!)
The Polyphonic Spree - Hold Me Now
More assorted nonsense, but probably slightly less eclectic, nest week
But not before I give you the legendary Frank Sidebottom's unique take on a Kylie classic
