My pal, Peter Flockhart, challenged me to find seven songs that would sum up my musical taste, but I got a little carried away. Thought you might like to see them all in the one place as we reach day 30. They are in no particular order and, surprisingly, only one artist appears twice. Tom Waits.

While you are watching “the Voice” I’ll be reliving the seedier side of my youth with two great bands.
First up. The Rezillos
Followed by The Stranglers (who I’ve seen six times or so, but not for 30 years).
My beloved’s all time favourite song is by The Stranglers…(It’s about Heroine you know.)
