    Damn, I haven’t listened to the other one yet – you’re taking your meeja job too seriously!<br/>However, I shall download and listen to ’em back to back once the Perfect Pizzaman arrives with my grub.<br/>Happy New Year and sorry to hear that your flu has put you out of a full on celebratory mood.

    Yay, fantastic end to the podcast, Romo!<br/><br/>Happy New Year – hope 2007 is fab

    Happy new year an’ all that bullshit RoMo!<br/><br/>Yet another great RocastMo.<br/><br/>After that Steely Dan album cover post, I was not surprised of the inclusion of a track from it!<br/><br/>Kate Bush…..Ahhhhhhhhhh…the fantasies I’ve had? (shut up that’s private) there I go again… I’m the British No.1 fan!…in my opinion the most original female artist Britain has EVER seen!<br/><br/>I always remember the story about her latest album, she invited her executive bosses round to hear the latest progress…but all they got was a slice of cake she had previously prepared and after that she f**ked them off! brilliant.<br/><br/>So that’s where Mr Swipe has been lurking? great cover version Bob…

    Do you remember the video for ‘Cloudbusting’…it featured Donald Sutherland!

    Ister – hurry up! I can’t help it – I really like podcasting. I still managed to stay up until 02:30 on a heady cocktail of kir royale, red wine and benylin4flu – oh, and water of course.<br/><br/>The Whales – yay – glad you liked it. Happy New Year to you too<br/><br/>Jifdump – happy New Year to you too. Yes the Mighty Bush is just my absolute favourite too – I did a post about her last year – you can find it here if you want. Oh – I’ve only just seen you’ve been there already. Well done, carry on! x<br/><br/>PS: No – I don’t remember him being in it – I’ll have to visit

    Just got it for tomorrow’s journey back to work, but it has Kate Bush brill. I remember Donald Sutherland in the vid worth seeing.<br/>Happy New Year Romo.

  7. Good one rm. Nice to hear the Steely Dan doing it again. How many people know that Steely Dan was named after a dildo in Naked Lunch by William Burroughs? Not many I bet or that Honey Bane is the lovechild of Jerry Hall and Barry Manilow? Robert???s song was a nice surprise too. Good work rockmum.

    ok, i have two days off, it is raining hard, i am recovering from new year shenanigans, and so the conditions are perfect for my first romo podcast experience. kate bush is my all time favourite too. everytime i listen to the new one i hear something different. she is a genius. hope you are recovering. much happiness and healthiness to you! x

    Nice pair of pods, RoMo. It was delightful to hear Bob / Berta still tinkling with the new-fangled recording machinery that he has recently acquired.

  10. Robert A. Swipe permalink

    …so this where you bastards are all hiding out….<br/><br/>Get back over to Swip Towers *this instant!!!*<br/><br/>Christ, Bob said you were a miserable bunch of bastards, for once, even *he* was understating it….<br/><br/>Great cast btw Mo of Roness….especially the bit at the end. I had a lump in my throat…..least, I *think* it was my throat….<br/><br/>Oh well, the Grauniad beckons…..ciao for now…<br/><br/><br/>xxxxx<br/><br/><br/>’Berta

  11. rockmother permalink

    Swip Towers? Are you drunk again Bob?

  12. rockmother permalink

    I mean ‘Berta. Hic.

  13. realdoc permalink

    Are you watching the Old Grey Whistle Test Years…Wishbone Ash what a revelation bloody brilliant.

  14. rockmother permalink

    Realdoc – oh no – I’m not but I’d love to be. Am having to read something for work in bed – big mistake as I keep half falling asleep! I’ve got all the OGWT on dvd – I’m such a saddo! I’m only allowed to watch them when everyone is out.

  15. JDA permalink

    Realdoc, have you heard "Argus" Classic Album….oh yeah.<br/><br/>RoMo, if you have the compilation of the OGWT years on DVD…..last nights program will and should be totally different….oh yeah.<br/><br/>I’ve taped it mate…oh yeah….jif

  16. Istvanski permalink

    I’ve recorded it too, I’ll get it down onto DVD soon.<br/>I was lucky enough to see Andy Powell and Ted Turner perform a few W.A. songs years ago when they were part of the bill on "Night of the Guitars". They did "The King Will Come" a veritable classic that has aged well over the years.<br/><br/>Jif likes "Blowing Free", especially after a chicken madras.

    PS – Re: Fuzzy Brown on your pod, that song of his reminds me of San Fransiscan uber-geeks Primus. It’s nice to know we know have an English version on the books.

  18. rockmother permalink

    Jif – I like this Oh yeah business – I might have to make a jingle out of it for my podcasts. Can you send me an mp3 of you saying oh yeah?<br/><br/>Istvanski – Primus? I don’t know much about them – you’ve played them before haven’t you on one of your first podcasts? It’s been a bit windy down this way too but we didn’t have curry – I put rather too many kidney beans into a chicken stew – better an empty house than a bad tenant as my grandma used to say! Still makes me laugh alot now to say it.

  19. realdoc permalink

    They were playing Jailbait. I’ve never heard them before having assumed they were proggy (is that a word) but this was 12 bar blues brilliant.

  20. rockmother permalink

    Damn – wish (no pun intended) I’d seen it now.

  21. JDA permalink

    Oh Yeah!!! I can do that…with various effects on them if you like?

  22. rockmother permalink

    Oh yeah – that would be really free!
