uitar players of Morrissey's band and Oasis (both old friends of Axel's). Sure, the Corvidae were missing a lead singer, drummer, and bass player ... but were passable enough to be enthusiastically invited to play some other London club. Har har!

We had the pleasure of opening for a marvelous rockabilly band fronted by the aforementioned Morrissey guitarist, Boz Boorer, whose first ducktail combo, The Polecats, pre-dated Brian Setzer's old greasemonkeys, and I daresay probably gave them a run for their money. Boz and his bass-thumping wife Lyn are punk-rock sweethearts, capable of tucking into a pint or three, and willing to bust out with the most jaw-dropping secretly held recording-session evidence ... let's just say that a certain New Wave icon no longer in favor has indeed recorded a startling, possibly criminal version of the Stones' "Monkey Man" ... and we'll leave it at that.

Next up on le blog: British alcoholism & cross-dressing, French corruption & anti-capitalist graffiti, telltale signs that you are 35 and not 21, some five-word movie reviews, plus astute commentary about how & why pro-war and anti-war factions are structurally predisposed to talk past each other.

I really liked The Polecats' song "Make a Circuit with Me" (a computer term-laden rockabilly song!) back in the day.

Happy Christmas dude! Seems you've done some nice work in the London. Hit all the ex-pats for me & I'll see you next month.
