good (rockin) friday

a dear old pal is off on a birthday roadtrip round some southern states so he got sent some elvis records to help the wheels keep turning...

as unlikey as it is that you don't have everything elvis already you can listen too...

the songs are...
my baby left me
i got a woman
i got stung
one night
i want you i need you i love you
a mess of blues
cotton candy land
she's not you
pocketful of rainbows
it's a long lonely highway
stranger in the crowd
i just can't help believing
gentle on my mind
kentucky rain
true love travels on a gravel road
i'm leavin'
tomorrow is a long time
early mornin' rain

and they are hanging around here ... i like elvis

really most awful sorry for the lack of whatever it is we do here this last however long but i think all that gross goop flowing out my schnoz last month was the last sorry sludge of all brain inspiration and vague ability to do pretty much anything bar slumping over a gin ... i'm pinning all hope for a cure on a bit of a dance...

lovely rob ryan has a new mixcloud whatsit to give you half a clue what might be in his magic box this time...

i do love jeff perry

jeff perry - call on me

germed bugged infected plague ridden unclean unclean sonic boom sneezes eec gooped tissue mountain medicinal afternoon tipples ... a bit of a sniffle...
