It's Friday . . . Let's Dance

I don't know what the fuck is going on with Blogger, last week they sort of forced me into signing up for a Google + account which I instantly disliked as I was no longer billisdead but was me. I tried to get back to my old account but couldn't.

Last night I tried to log into my Blog but my account had been suspended I feared the worst and the blog had been pulled but apparently my name is not a real name. Fortunately I was able to retrieve my old Blogger account and I am now me again.

Anyway back to the music. I can't believe that this track is over thirty years old it still sounds as fresh as fuck to these ears.

ESG ( Emerald, Saphire and Gold) was a band formed in the South Bronx by the four Scroggins sisters and their first couple of singles were produced by Martin Hannett, the second of which You're No Good was actually released on Factory Records.

Today's track Dance was originally released as the a-side of the group's third single, ESG Says Dance To The Beat of Moody released in 1982 but re-released in 2004 on a white label 12" and again on 7" in 2010.

There will be nothing to see here until next Friday as we are off for rain, tears and tantrums to Machrihanish today for a week.

Have a good weekend people.

It's in the Hindu Kush. It's where Mia Farrow fell in love with Donovan and he wrote that song 'Hey Juniper' all about it but Brian Jones had died and then Paul took over and made Magical Mystery Door which no-one liked but it's actually really good beacuse Oasis are in it doing 'Hello Walrus' (with midges)

Anto, as DVD, once said, on the tip of that bit of Scotland that looks like a flaccid cock.

Did I? Well, it does.

Suspect if it ever got excited, it would knock Islay right off the map. Is the infamous long runway still like a blue vein on the meat?

Although davy's wacky theory may well be right. What with that and the Mull Of Kintyre, it reminds me, am off to see The Rutles later this month. Good eh. Am excited. No Eric Idle, but Ron Nasty (Neil Innes) will be there.

Have a nice dry holiday dear drew and fam.
