Playlist 25 February

Bradley's Blog Admin | 17:47 UK time, Thursday, 25 February 2010

Is there a shortage of cover versions of songs by The Monkees ? A quick search using my brain, rather than a search engine, can only throw up (ho!ho!) the Sex Pistols doing '(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone.' Maybe other punk bands heard that and decided not to compete. I remember seeing the Purple Hearts during the Mod Spring of 1979 and they attempted the same song. Apart from that, nothing. Apart from the Sex Pistols tonight, a lot. The Chefs, with Helen McCookerybook and "24 Hours" and Scissor Fits 'I Don't Want To Work For British Airways". It's from 1979. Contemporary enough for you ?

    The Wedding Present did a mean Pleasant Valley Sunday, I think it was a b-side on one of the 12 singles, one every month back when.
