The Touchables. Four young ladies kidnap this month's fave rave popstar. Cult status assured because it looks fantastic but has an unfathomable plot. Could be making a point about the rapacious nature of consumerism but not sure.
Fun Beatles related facts:
Directed by Robert Freeman
The waxwork of Diana Does is the one used on Sgt. Pepper cover.
Features cover version of Good Day Sunshine.
Also has Michael Caine's 2nd best performance of 1968

Must admit to not being familiar with this author so I've taken a punt and ordered a copy of Sacred Art of Stealing. Will let you know what I think.  ;)

Mann Made - Manfred Mann. Saw the Manfreds live last night (special guest - Georgie Fame) and bought a copy on vinyl which was kindly autographed. Tom McGuinness said there's something very satisfying about weighty vinyl (agreed). Told Paul Jones that I'm a fan of Privilege. "My word, you've actually seen that film?!" he chuckled. Very well spoken, articulate man: the Nigel Havers of R n B !  :)

A good watch Doc,band were on fire then. Bobbys right in saying that the probably won't better it.
Denise is quoted on film a few times on this,as she was a big part of it, im sure she'll get the payment/credit she deserves.  ;)

Ady, aye laughed at that.
I laughed when Noel G said they went to the warehouse where Creation had all their stock and where told they could have any records they wanted. "Already got Screamadelica. Why would I want a BMX Bandits 12 inch?"

The Lucid Dream - Actualisation. Great review on Monkey's blog about this one.
Primal Scream - Give Out...original Memphis recordings. Much prefer this to the '94 version. Much more rootsy.
Various - St. Etienne present songs for the Carnegie Deli. There's something I find just fantastic about those NYC Brill Building big production songs of the 60s and this one ticks the boxes.

Ady,

A wee bit late but the story of the Memphis recordings is on BBC 4 at 9 tonight.

It's followed by a programme about David Rodigan and then one about Reggae. The beers are chilling nicely for this.

I'm sure they'll be available on BBC sounds/ iPlayer in future also.
Just watched it on iPlayer, very revealing documentary. Not sure what would be my fave Bob Marley b-side would be, though... ;D

He's had previous ;D

Thoroughly enjoyed the gig, though.  Very much a fan of Steve Cradock's less-is-more approach.  Highlights for me were One Bright Star, Man of Great Promise, and  Ever Had It Blue?

I like the Weller album a lot. During the summer he was on a couple of radio shows, just him & guitar, and I had misgivings: I thought it was going to be as leaden and lackluster as Days of Speed was but the string arrangements really do add so much to it. I think it's best listened to the whole way through as it flows nicely. Suits the autumnal weather as well.
