I saw the remaining Blockheads live in Wolverhampton a couple of years ago with the comedian Phil Jupitus standing in for the late, great Ian Dury. They played the whole of 'New Boots and Panties' and other hits. I have to say, it was a great night out.

I was all geared up to see one of his last shows (Ross on Wye International... 2001?)... Had to cancel through poor health: replaced with Steve Harley, who did a storming show including a couple of Dury covers as compensation.

Came across this song. Even thought the lyrics are rather pensive, the rhythm is upbeat. When I heard it I couldn't put a finger where the band came from, but I was sure from somewhere is the US East coast. Maybe they have influences down there but they are actually from Sydney. Hip Hop lovers rejoice

Due to circumstances at work finished 3 hrs earlier than usual. So was home in time to watch "sounds like Friday night" which i watched out of curiosity as lm fan of greg james. Heard this. Ive never heard of halsey or even knew who she was. Beforehand but min in. I was hooked thinking this is a tune. Im usually a grower before i like something

Was watching pointless which ended up me researching & Finding a great fact that crazy frog has more Uk Number 1 singles than Bob Marley, The Who, Bruce Springsteen. Because crazy frog had 1 the other 3 never achieved the feat


Just to redeem myself. I do like the new Florence and the machine stuff

So the director thought, let's take a young American actress, dress her up as Japanese Manga character and then have her sing a classic British new wave song "Turning Japanese" 'cause the song is about Japan right ??

I think someone needed to check what the song is actually about LOL

Well, the song really doesn't mean what many people think it means. I have their original album and the song writer had a strong interest in Japan, with songs like "Letter from Hiro," among other subjects.

It was a decent album with interesting lyrics.
