Harry Rag - The Kinks

Ah, Tom is young and Tom is bold
Tom is as bold as the knights of old
But whenever he gets in a bit of a jam
There's nothing he wont do to get a harry rag

Harry rag, harry rag
Do anything just to get a harry rag
And he curses himself for the life he's led
And rolls himself a harry rag and puts himself to bed

Ah, Tom's old ma is a dying lass
Soon they all reckon she'll be pushing up the grass
And her bones might ache and her skin might sag
But still she's got the strength to have a harry rag

Harry rag, harry rag
Do anything just to get a harry rag
And she curses herself for the life she's led
And rolls herself a harry rag and puts herself to bed

Ah, bless you tax man, bless you all
You may take some but you never take it all
But if I give it all, I wont feel sad
As long as I got enough to buy a harry rag

Harry rag, harry rag
Do anything just to get a harry rag
And I curse myself for the life I've led
And roll myself a harry rag and put myself to bed

Ah, the smart young ladies of the land
Can't relax without a harry in their hand
And they light one up and they boast and brag
So content because they got a harry rag

Harry rag, harry rag
Do anything just to get a harry rag
And they'll light one and they'll boast and brag
So content because they got a harry rag

Harry rag, harry rag
I'll do anything just to get a harry rag
And I curse myself for the life I've led
And roll myself a harry rag and put myself to bed

I think it's eponimously titled and the cover is green.I got it as a present but i have never listened to it.It is definately their last album.

Yeah... I'm just getting into them... Permanent Drool contains two long sound pieces that are full of atmoshperics and really great weird twists and turns... that in places remind me in feel of the work of Paul McCarthy.
the other one that I have is Penetration Initials which is amazing, a half an hour live recording which is a long song that seems to be semi improvised in a kind of folky Jandek kind of way... but slightly more tuneful.

Which album do you have?

porkmarras 06.14.2006 07:35 AM

See above.

yep

toxic johnny 06.14.2006 07:43 AM

Fuck I thought you were talking about Warmer Milks!...

Ok on topic now... I'm a really big fan of Espers... that is indeed their first album and It's fantastic... but not as fantastic as Espers II which rules all... by the way you might be interested to know that they have covered Secret Side by Nico on their Weed Tree covers ep... check it out I think you'll love it.

Ok.I don't know much about them but you made me want to listen to that album now.Is the cover of 'Secret side' any good?I'm of the opinion that the version of this song that Nico does on the Peel sessions e.p. CAN'T be bettered by anyone.

Sorry Porkmarras the cover is 'Afraid' and not Secret Side... I got a bit overly excited and mixed up there, will you ever forgive me... and yes you are right the Peel session version of Secret side is perfect.

 


This is definitely worth checking out.

porkmarras 06.14.2006 08:00 AM

Thanks Toxic Johnny.I'm glad that i wont leave that record unlistened and on the shelf any longer.I'll track the above album down and let you know what i think of it.I'm also glad that they stayed away from 'Secret side' 'cause that would have certainly turned out to be musical blasphemy.It is virtually impossible to cover Nico.Period.

I am listening to an ancient 10" with a handmade cover entitled "Rail Dynamics." Train sounds on one side; a storm on the other. The surface noise gives it the weight of years, and this is pretty cool. Handstamped labels too!

Don't know about that, but I know that the drummy bit from 'Sleepin Arouund' is stuck in my head - I find myself tapping it with my fingers on a regular basis.

I'm listening to the soundtrack LP from the film 'Betty Blue', by Gabriel Yared.

Used to sell LOADS of sound effects Lp's when I was working in record shops (late 80's-early 90's). I'm listening to Subtle's A New White. And then it'll be Thurston Moore's Please Just Leave Me.

HaydenAsche 06.14.2006 04:19 PM

Cat Power - Moon Pix

Everyday for the last 3 months I've listened to this album.

By a slight coincidence, today I bought, for the princely sum of 50p (@ 80cents) a 1970 LP called The Age of Steam. It's a BBC educational thing to accompany some old TV programme about the 19th century. It's on now.

Side one is songs about the time, but side two is readings from acts of law, speeches etc. Side two, track 8 is For and Against The Railroad, reading from a report into whether or not there should be a railway between Liverpool and Manchester (which turned out to be the first timetabled passenger railway in the world - Rainhill Trials, Stephensons Rocket etc - I travel what's left of that very route quite often as it happens). So sort of connected.

Of no interest to you at all probably, Savage, and I'm quite sure that you'll never read this missive anyway, but that's just life I suppose...

No Neck Blues Band - Qvaris.

I've probably mentioned this before but I have a 7" flexi from the RSPB which is a collection of bird sounds which is really nice. Also, yesterday I found a couple of learn-a-language type 7"'s in the pile. One narrated by Magnus Magnusson! About learning German or something. And a French one as well.

Pookie 06.14.2006 05:54 PM

Gustafsson & Stackenas - Blues.

I used to have a dance instruction flexi.

CHOUT 06.15.2006 12:54 AM

Wire-154
I've had it a while, hasn't grown on me much except for a few songs (The 15th is one of the best songs ever written!).

youthoftomorrow 06.15.2006 12:59 AM

The Flaming Lips - Clouds Taste Metallic

not as good as Transmissions From The Satellite Heart but still pretty good.
