The Return Of Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 87

The return of Lonesome Town, the Ricky Nelson song covered by The Cramps that was here last week. This time it's Holly Golightly's version from her excellent Singles Round Up album.

On finishing a long autumn term, on the day we finished for the Christmas holiday, I once passed a much older member of staff out in absolute lashing rain and wind, both of us heading for the car park looking to make our exits. 'In the words of the prophet' he said 'thank fuck that's over'.

Tonight is commonly known as Mad Friday- pub anyone?

Lonesome Town

Dang! Something's gone wrong with the timed post function. Ah well.

Not remotely rockabilly but there's some free TLS remixes available here:


Consider it my christmas gift to you, although I'm afraid if you've already got them, I haven't got the receipt and won't be able to take them back.

No pub, but cheap curry (never hard to find in the West Midlands).
