Playlist 13 October

Mickey Bradley | 16:06 UK time, Wednesday, 19 October 2011

AFTD again. Acronyms, don't you love them ? Many an hour has been spent discussing Worst Rhymes In Jam Records , in mod clubs up and down the land. My own favourite features in the opening song, where Billy describes a former foreman he once worked for. As well as creating a phrase 'don't even stop for a cough' Paul Weller compounds the offence by rhyming "cough" with 'RAF'. Still, you can't argue with his clothing choices in 1978. 
Another Swedish selection tonight from Cornflake Zoo, with a cover of a song by Sonny Flaherty and Mark V. I'm sure you're familiar with their work. If you are, then Mr You're A Better Man Than I (Yardbirds, not Sham 69)
