Playlist 21 April

Mickey Bradley | 09:24 UK time, Friday, 22 April 2011

It's twenty years since the death of Johnny Thunders in a hotel in New Orleans. Even with his reputation, it was still a shock to read about it two days later in a newspaper (this was pre-internet immediacy). Two records to mark his passing, although I would have been tempted to sprinkle more New York Dolls songs through the show. Also an appearance of an actual new CD. The Outcasts have had some of their live performances from a club in Lyon, France collected by Spit Records. 'Seven Deadly Sins' has a touch of rockabilly to it , which is always welcome round our way. The photographs still frighten me though. There's also a nice example to prove the point that there's more to Question Mark and the Mysterians than '96 Tears'.
