    Hebe, while you're looking, here's a 'taste'
    from The Monkees TV show...

    (I gotta say This Mortal Coil's versions
    always sends shivers down my spine...)

    Yes, and since you brought it up, Jeff Buckley did a pretty awesome version of Kangaroo too. The This Mortal Coil connection is how he met Liz Fraser, AFAIK, where they made the formally infamous song All Flowers In Time.

    Although some say Big Star did a reasonable job of Kangaroo.

    Splutter!

    About when I saw them at the Galaxy/Powerstation. All smoke and shadowplay.

    I do love a bit on anachronistic humour. That Chilton wasn't above his own covers though. And back to the snow we go...

    Hair was easier then. You just put your finger in the light socket and went out. Or not.

  • Steve Barnes,

    Meanwhile, back on the ranch slider with a side of blubber...
    The oily one is implicated

    Questions also remained over why the SIS released the material (to Slater) with such urgency - four working days after receiving the request under the Official Information Act. Most requests are either rejected outright or take at least three weeks to action.

    Like I mentioned earlier this is part of a dirty tricks campaign by the usual suspects.
    Just follow the Snail Trail...

    Tony Blair - The Godfather!
    Closer economic ties...

    Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair is godfather to one of Rupert Murdoch's children

    and Jimmy-Boy looks like he'll be called back to Parliament to answer more questions. - just when does it become a criminal case?

    When he becomes poor or brown. Not before.
