Like most New Years recently, I’ll be staying in, enjoying good company, food and drink and then watching Later with Jules Holland – Hootenanny!.
I used to like Paul Weller back in the 80s, ( not so much Marc Almond) but he and Amy Winehouse weren’t very impressive on the BBC proms a few months ago. The rest of the lineup is quite promising though.
So, A Happy New Year to anyone still checking blogs at this time…
Do you want to hear some predictions?
The Paul Weller/Amy Winehouse duet of “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” was very enjoyable, as were Lily Allen, Madeleine Peyroux, and the Zutons. Highlight though, must have been Ade Edmondson’s Bonzoesque (with trumpet) version of the Sex Pistols’ “Anarchy in the UK” which he claimed was the first time the song had every been performed on British TV without getting banned. But on Bedazzled, you can view a movie of a performance from September 4th 1976 on the Granada TV show “So It Goes”. So maybe I got it wrong, or it was a first for the BBC, or with a trumpet or something.
