Sounds from The South12 – These boots are made for working Our contribution to The Dirt this week is about my beloved gardening boots when I worked for the council years ago. Tune of the week is from the Carlton & The Shoes with Love me forever. Keep on stepping!
Have a listen on play again when it’s up later this week (19th October show) here (Sounds from The South is usually around 10 minutes in.) The show features The Idiot Gardener, Peat, Morissons and The Gentleman Gardener amongst lots of other stuff. Cheers again to Si, Ricky and Paul!
Sounds from The South10 – Never mind the Council Our contribution to The Dirt this week is about meeting a couple of those Sex Pistols fellows while working as a council gardener in West London in the 1980’s. Tune of the week is from the great U-Roy&The Gladiators called Natty Rebel.
Have a listen on play again when it’s up later this week (5th October show) here (Sounds from The South is usually around 10 minutes in), alongside more gardening related stuff including funerals, morrisons, squashes and a tale about one of The Smiths. Cheers again to Si, Ricky and Paul!
That’s just reminded me, years ago I was told by a bloke who I doing an apprenticeship with (who wasn’t the full shilling on thinking back) that his brother was a mechanic who got a call one day in December 1977 to a coach that was carrying a famous rock band that had broken down on the motorway just outside Coventry.
He told me that when his brother went to fix the coach on the hard shoulder, it was the Sex Pistols and that all the band and their entourage were all dressed in “normal” clothes (flares, star jumpers and hair like Noel Edmonds etc) and all the punk stuff was “just an act.” Briliant, this rates as one of the best stories I’ve ever been told! But please don’t tell that to the dog-collared fashionista I seen at London Bridge station the other morning.
And if you want to vote The Dirt for your favourite show on Fab Radio International please cast your vote here!
This week’s Sounds from the south on Fab Radio International’s The Dirt is about a choice job a mate of mine had years ago. Tune of the week is from Barry Biggs called Work All Day from 1976 and it’s one to do “The chucky” to!
Have a listen on play again when it goes up later this week (14th September show) here for all sorts of gardening and growing malarkey including psychoactive plants. Sounds from The South is about 10 minutes in. Cheers to Si, Ricky and Paul!
Here’s a quick reminder of the event we are staging with the good folks at Limewharf this Saturday afternoon. Thanks to Emma for getting it all sorted at the last minute and to Marc B. for giving us the idea.
Music is from 3-8pm and features some great summer tunes from weeds’ very own One Deck Pete plus our friends Thea(MADONJAZZ), Mark G (Penge Jazz) and all the way from Tallinn, Estonia The Rhythm Doctor. You can bring your kids, it costs zilch and it’s a nice chilled out venue so there’s no excuse. Come down and enjoy the end of summer this Saturday afternoon!
There’s also art, acupuncture and a whole lot more. There’s a film called “Drag is my Ecstasy” about the club night Sink The Pink and an exhibition of work from David Holah of BodyMap. How good is that for a Saturday afternoon!
