Welcome back to Chriswasanon! CwA. Final edit!!!!
That part of the Interweb where we showcase the very best bits of Jonesy's Jukebox on Indie 103.1 Check the links! ------------------------->
Continuing our Paul Cook theme, I thought I would spread out a little of the Jukebox show first aired on 31.08.05. This is another teaser for you. So ok. it was Cookies birthday yesterday but the celebrations will continue, a little like New Year in Scotland. People are still standing on the tables in the pubs 5 days later! Next year Mr. Shovel's birthday will have length and longevity. Wait till Steve's comes round! We could have annual jukebox blog festivals! What do you thinkski Tina?
So this is another lil teaser for you. This transcript is the second hour of the rebroadcast. The orginal airing was 1. hr only - you don't need to concern yer selves with that info. Paul and Jenny turned up shortly before. Suffice to say the whole hour should soon be available at kick down the doors! Unfortunately there were tech problems, gremlins scrambled the signal on two occasions so there was 0 to do but summarise. When the stuff is up AND Tina's mighty works - you will get the call. Yeah. More Cookie to come - probably scans from magazines around the time of the Pistols reformation. Oops probably not, scanner is bust!
So lets go back to those dark days of 1940 and also strangely 2005. The post does speak for itself , I think but this wonderful aerial shot of a Heinkel He. 111 over East London presumably taken by another aircraft of the same bomber group seems apt.
Heinkel 111 twin engined heavy bomber in the daylight over East London. Primary Target: the docks and warehouses and the civilian population. Photo taken on Saturday Sept 7th 1940. Battle of Britain day. During that Winter the night bombing offensive was to become much more intense. September 7th marks the decisive phase. The Luftwaffe turned it's attention away from RAF stations and radar installations, to raids on Britain's cities. This gave the RAF respite and lost Germany the chance for air supremacy, a key condition for a successful invasion (operation Seelowe) of Britain. The following summer Hitler turned East and unleashed the full horror of his vile racial war...
So this pic of the Jerry bomber is taken from a Battle of Britain
Wiki on the subject. The text was not! It's mine all mine and mine
Well there is plenty of myspace Steve news, so go check it out! It seems Steve was on a bit of space journey trip, so one of my sources tells me. Thanks Lintilla!
Chriswasanon IS at the Controls!
Paul: Oh one of my relatives, yeah oh yeah we get about, we been in Spain for months and months.
Steve: That’s right, you got a gaff out there.
Paul: Yeah we get out of London as much as we can mate, don’t worry.
Steve: Did all that, was you out of town when all that…?
Paul: Yeah when all the bombs and stuff were going off. Yeah it’s a weird atmosphere there now. You know.
Paul: I went on the train the other day, there was no one on it.
Paul: Goin’ up to Piccadilly, yeah , it was that empty.
Steve: If some bloke with a turban gets on, with a backpack, everyone gets off.
Paul: Well I was lookin’ at everyone. You know, “who are these…?”( Laughs)
Steve: “What’s goin’ on…(imitating panic Corporal Jones of Dad’s Army Style) What’s… has he got a backpack?”
Steve: Hey that’s terrifying.
Steve: Oh well.
Paul: We’re used to it, ain’t we?
Paul: Yeah, it’s been goin’ on forever.
Paul: We don’t care, we just carry on you know, bombs goin’ off everywhere.
Steve: “We don’t care” (…a spoken line from the chorus of Pretty Vacant? Then carries on in a gritty voice).
Paul: (Joining in with a throaty” backs to the wall” accent). Bulldog spirit. The old blitz spirit! Bombs goin’ off everywhere!
Steve (Laughs) Excellent. Um..what ‘appened with this bleedin’ thing Shovel? Did no one know this song?
Wait, Tina here. This is a bit from Steve's program yesterday:
June 20, 2006 Cookie’s 50th
Steve: You’re listening to Jonesy’s Jukebox on Indie 1031. It’s three minutes after twelve bells and it’s nice that, nice out. Hot, but not as humid is what my senses tell me. But it’s not quite as bad as it was last week, or maybe just getting used to it. No, I don’t think so.
Mr. Shovel: Much warmer than it is in outer space.
Steve: Very cold up there yesterday, Mr. Shovel.
Mr. Shovel: In fact, it’s cold as hell.
Steve: I know. Um…what’s the next line?
Mr. Shovel: “and there’s no one to…”
Steve: “to save me, on a flight like this”. Um, that was fun though, being in space. Got to do that more often.
Mr. Shovel: I missed you though, it was weird being here alone.
Steve: By yourself? Yeah. I was gonna go and drop down back in England, cos Paul Cook, it’s his fiftieth today.
Mr. Shovel: Well, he came here for yours.
Steve: I know, I know.
Mr. Shovel: You should have dropped in while you were over there.
Steve: But he don’t have a job, see…so he can do things like that. He’s you know, I think he likes coming here. I would have actually went there if I could have had the time. But he ain’t even in England. He’s in Spain. He’s got a gaff out there and…I’m almost a year older than him. September, I’ll be fifty-one. How many months is that, three? Three months, right? What is it, yeah. Early September. Almost three months, wow. I’m the oldest Pistol. The oldest gunslinger. So happy birthday, Paul. My dear, oldest friend. Ever. I’m glad you made it to a McGarrett, 5-0. Excellent. And you’re all healthy, no major problems. It’s all good. We both got here, so far. Fifty more to you, my friend.
I’m going to play all power pop today. Pop. Pure pop. Some of you might get irked by this, so I command you to leave now and those of you that have broader minds, please keep listening. I’m going to play the Raspberries right now. We giving any sh…stuff away?
Mr. Shovel: (laughing) Yeah, we have Buzzcocks tickets.
Steve: Buzzcocks? Nice.
Mr. Shovel: You almost swore.
Steve: No, I didn’t. I wasn’t going to say what you thought, “poo poo”…I wasn’t going to say that.
Mr. Shovel: Okay.
Steve: I just started on saying, “shtuff”. Are we doing a thing in the studio with Buzzcocks next week?
Mr. Shovel: Yeah.
Steve: Going to be doing…
Mr. Shovel: The “Bunker”.
Steve: The Bunker. Live from The Bunker. Actually recording them as a band for the first time ever on The Box, right?
Mr. Shovel: It will be a full, studio, electric set-up. Next Wednesday, right?
Steve: Yeah. Excellent. Can’t wait for that.
Mr. Shovel: That’ll be the first broadcast from The Bunker.
Steve: Yep. (plays a bit on his guitar) Oh, that sounded good, that. How does “Happy Birthday” go? (sings a sweet acoustic "Silly Thing" instead)
What you see you can’t get
Nothing’s free, nothing’s set
Don’t be fooled by the signs
Don’t read in-between the lines
Whatcha gonna say
Whatcha gonna do
Now you’ve missed out once again
but I thought you knew
You are fifty now
You’re the same as me
You are fifty now
and we’ll let it be
Trouble there trouble here
People stop just to stare
What’s the use in wasting time
Just move on leave ‘em all behind
Whatcha you gonna say
Whatcha you gonna do
Now you’ve missed out once again
and I thought you knew
Now you’re fifty…
Happy Birthday, Mr. Cook. Take it away, Mr. Shovel.
