The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
being from here in the states- i haven't heard of most of the music you post- but it is neat to hear new music. thanks! :)
you're welcome Betmo... Thanks to Youtube I have no shortage of stuff to post when I have nothing to say!
i like youtube for that!
" You say it best when you say nothing at all". My Papi dedicated that one to my notoriously chatty self. :) This doesn't apply to you though, jams. You're not just a babbling brook, there's always genuine little pearls of interest in your blog musings.Now, as for Fischer, the lead guy sort of reminds me of Bryan Ferry. The skinny tie look made the video especially sweet.
You flatter me ewbl! More Please!!! Seriously, I am very glad you like my blog. I enjoy your blog very much tooJohn Watts never had Ferry's success of course (Roxy are back on the road.. A friend went to see them last month, mainly to humour his girlfriend and to ensure... No I digress!) Sadly the total number of Fischer Z songs I like can be counted exactly on one hand. Two of the others are available on youtube and will be blogged in due course.
I came here by way of elastic and have been reading your posts. Great blog!
Thaqnk you Wendela I hope you continue to enjoy my stream of consciouness!
I'm from Portugal and this song was on top at that time. Everyone here (above the 30's now) know this song for sure. Excelent from Fischer Z. And thank's for sharing the video!
I'm glad you liked it Paolo. I will be posting Perfect Day soon too
Just for history, Fischer Z were the main attraction of a concert for a radio show back in 1981 here in Portugal. (Beware of goose pumps now :-) ) They performed before a crowd of over 40.000 (right, thousand) at the Alvalade Stadium, then the home of Sporting CP.Still great listening after all these years.Rui Tavares
