The Beatles Never Broke Up

Ok, so this is obviously some sort of hoax as we all know that the Beatles did break up and some of them have gone and popped their clogs.  Some guy is claiming to have had an ‘experience‘ where by he came across this tape and since then he has very kindly made it available to us all.

So not sure if you would want to listen to it time and time again but I thought the whole thing was interesting enough to spread the love – plus free music is always worth a go in my books (or ears).

To late, its already been done.

Just got hold of this bad-boy. Pure soul, and some charming anecdotes along the way, too. Apparently the LP changes hands for a couple of hundred quid these days so if you spot it on your travels then grab a copy for me, too.

The whole album’s killer but for me the version of Grandma’s Hands is a proper Michael Winner. No diggity.

O Fantastico Mundo De Joao Brasil

I guess life is pretty good when you get paid to hit buttons and make sounds.

Some pretty decent sounds he’s got there.

Catch him tonight alongside Radio Clit, Los Chinches, Aj Holmes and Vamanos at the Notting Hill Arts Club

Oh, and its only Vamanos’ Birthday…..popular month to be born, evidently.
