boogie oogie oogie

if you've been following the goings on here you'll know by now that i'm quite shockingly shallow, and far more easily swayed by a pretty picture and a whistlable tune than reams of devastating insight and a five album box set. so my favourite journalism generally involves the desperately important 'what's your favourite colour socks?' questions. the fabulous kevin rowland manages to make even the comedy record mirror profile as seroius as he can....

and i know we weren't supposed to laugh at all of dexys makeovers, but we did.

'searching for the young soul rebels' is still a magical record though

Oh Ally, don't get me started. Dexy's who made it acceptable to march into a room and throw your Addidas holdall down like it meant something. I love the story - told by Rowland - that he asked Van Morrison to produce the 2nd album. Morrison came to the studio listened to about 2 mins and walked out without a word. Where is Rowland now? If you know put it on your site.

I award you one gold star for finding the prototype for Dexys MySpace profile. Plus, all the girls are dying to know, how do they look so fit in dungarees? Answer: 'Training'. Erm!

Kev's dancing in this video is spectacular. Shame it's too hot to wear Donkey jackets & Wooly Hats in LA

freezing cold pissing down awfulness doesn't seem to stop people here wearing practically nothing... perhaps you could go for the boxing boots and little ponytails version. very becoming...
