Mersey Paradise


2021 Charity Shop Purchases 84 - Mersey Paradise - Mojo Compilation

A breakfast pitstop in Fort William led to the last purchases of the holidays including a couple of  Mojo compilations one of which was Mersey Paradise - the fab sounds of Liverpool from October 2018. A  benifit of buying this in a charity shop and not buying the magazine at the time was that I was spared an exclusive interview with cover star Paul McCartney including photos by his daughter Mary. Haud me back!

Coming from Birkenhead the mighty Half Man Half Biscuit would have no issue with the CD title but may well take umbrage with the sub-title.
Every Time a Bell Rings is a song from their 2018 album No-One Cares About Your Creative Hub So Get Your Fuckin' Hedge Cut (on Probe Plus) and shows Nigel Blackwell at his creative best including the classic opening line Ground Control to Monty Don. I will be watching Gardener's World in a different light from now on in. 
There are a number of other  excellent artists and songs on the CD but I have opted for The Return of Evil  by Crosby band Clinic taken from their 2000 debut album Internal Wrangler on the Domino label.

Terry Barry, Barry Terry!

  1. Loved the HMHB track - you can always rely on Nigel to puncture any pretensions. I've fallen behind with their albums - haven't bought one since Achtung Bono and blimey that was 15 years ago! Calling Discogs.
