Sex Patels

John Angliss is plugging this band at the moment.  Good find!  But having listened to a few of their cover versions on MySpace I don’t know why John prefers The lunatics have taken over the asylum to the stunning version of Once in a lifetime.

I never realised how much the song could be improved by a Yorkshire accent.

    Fantastic version, I see what you mean about the accent. I like the fact, as well, that it is so much less, well, frantic than the original! Although I now have a wicked urge to listen to some John Cooper Clarke

    But surely JCC is a Manc.

    Yeah, but I get echoes….

    By coincidence, my CD of 100s of semi-random .wma files threw up some JCC on the way home today.

    Beasley Street. I had forgotten how powerful that is. It just summed up Thatcher’s Britain for me.
