Just a reminder.
 
The photo was in  The word magazine.
 
"BBC RADIO 2 Saturday 13 January 2007  
 
The Feelgood Factor
Saturday 13 January  
8.00-9.00pm BBC RADIO 2  
          
Mark Radcliffe and his buddy Phil Walmsley, aka Wammo, set off on a funny yet poignant radio road trip in search of the band behind the record that changed their lives 30 years ago: the classic Dr Feelgood album, Down By The Jetty.  
 
Recently re-released as a Collectors' Edition, that record was a slice of uncompromisingly sweaty R&B, driven by Wilko Johnson's manic guitar licks and singer Lee Brilleaux's blues-inspired vocals.  
 
 The pair's journey starts in the student halls of residence at Manchester University, where they first met. The mists of time recede as they swap memories and play selections from Down By The Jetty a Dansette record player in Wammo's old room, just as they did 30 years ago.  
 
Then they hop in the car and head south to Canvey Island in Essex, where the remaining Feelgoods are reassembling to meet them. On the way, they play classic cuts from the album and hear from music legends Sir Bob Geldof and Paul Weller about the importance and influence of the Feelgoods. Blondie drummer Clem Burke also recalls a famous party in the mid-Seventies at which New York scene stalwarts The Ramones, Blondie, Richard Hell and the New York Dolls played the Feelgoods over and over again.  
 
  An impromptu diversion takes Mark and Wammo to the legendary London venue Dingwalls, scene of some of the band's greatest gigs. There they meet singer, songwriter, producer and Feelgoods fan Nick Lowe, who reflects on how the band blew away the Seventies "pub rock" scene with their energy.  
 
  Finally, they arrive in Canvey, where Wilko Johnson, bassist John B Sparks and drummer The Big Figure – who has flown in specially from France – are waiting at The Oysterfleet Hotel. The three reminisce about the making of Down By The Jetty and swap fond stories of Lee Brilleaux, who died from cancer in 1994 and is remembered with a band reunion in Canvey each year. As a final homage, they recreate the cover of Down By The Jetty in front of the island's oil terminals, with Mark standing in for Brilleaux.

On tonight's Vic Galloway programme of Radio Scotland, a 30 minute recording of KC playing somewhere will be played. The bulk of it is to be played after 9pm but there's a taster at 8.30pm, where KC sounds a bit Proclaimer-ish.

Forgot to say that I listened to KC twice, it was that good.
 
I may have mentioned it before, but The Stool Pigeon really is a must for all discerning musicologists.  It's a free paper containing excellent writing, brilliant graphics, and hilarious little features.  In the latest edition, there's a very good interview with Mark E Smith (they didn't just manage to get words out of him, they got him to say some interesting stuff!), pictures of cats that look like Hitler, and they call Jamie Rockway the **** in the hat!  Without the stars!

Hearing Willy Russell reminds me...  His novel, The Wrong Boy, a diary of a Morrissey fan, is definitely worth a read.  Even if the ending is a bit lame.  I heard it being read on some digital channel when I was mucking about with a new DAB.  Went and got it out of the library the next day.
 
<edit>  Oh, he's just mentioned it himself.

So Suggs reckons he was on the same TOTP as The Smiths, when Madness were performing "Night Boat To Cairo"!?
 
Er, 2 and a half years before The Smiths even existed  Roll Eyes

Ha ha!  You know Suggs's life better than he does!
 
Or maybe someone said, "we'll pay you to talk about when you were on Top Of The Pops with The Smiths", and he was too, er, polite to correct them.

It's OK, I've heard that Suggs clip before.
 
He's getting mixed up with when Madness were on TOTP performing "One Better Day" and the Smiths were doing "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now" - 4 years later!!
 
Bless him, he's getting on a bit, though still not as old as Morrissey  Grin

Suggs (or Graham McPherson)? Unlikely, but I'll be happy to be proved wrong. Or do you mean Mozza? Totally unlikely. He bats for the other team, in more ways than one.
