Hot sun, cold drinks and some louche Mancini?

I don't mind if I do.

From my Cafe Mambo Ibiza 2005...ah, thems was the times.

Henry Mancini - 'Lujon' (1959)

  1. Pint of Guinness Mr H, I have a mouth like the inside of a dry cleaners. Been stripping the gloss from the front doors and porch with a heat gun for the last three hours.
    Scooter hunting tomorrow, magic.

    Have a good weekend.

  2. Nice cuppa at the moment after a bit of BBQ.

    I'm on a power pop run at the moment, and this popped up from a compilation somebody gave me of random powerpop moments from the last 20 years. The Gigolo Aunts doing a Van Halen cover. It's good, honestly!

  6. This is new to me, so thanks!.... Sounds a lot like various bits of Art of Noise though, esp. Paranoimia (the Max Headroom track).
