“It’s kind of a social misfit song, nothing autobiographical here at all.” Richard Thompson, underrated folk rock guitarist and songwriter.
Cob Records of Porthmadog, Gwynedd, Wales hosted a farewell party in 2012 featuring North Wales surf rock gods Y Niwl . The band’s name is pronounced Uh Nule – “The Fog” in Welsh.
The Dip is comprised of jazz students from University of Washington (Seattle) and not only do they have the retro soul sound down, they got cowbell.
Lotta stuff going down these days, some good, some bad, and some is downright abhorrent. Let’s enjoy what what we like, protect what we treasure and we’ll deal with the rest when it comes. Have a great weekend, see you sometime tomorrow.
Run, Don’t Walk, The Ventures (?), year unknown.
That song title is not a typo, and I can’t find any info on the origin of the recording. One source claims it was unreleased, but that seems unlikely; it’s possibly the work of a tribute band. The Ventures had a huge hit with Walk, Don’t Run in 1960, but you knew that.
The Fokker D.VII is the only aircraft mentioned by name in the Armistice demands of November, 1918. Germany was ordered to surrender “1,700 airplanes (fighters, bombers – firstly, all of the D 7’S and all the night bombing machines)” (number of aircraft to surrender are not always the same).
In the end, not all D.VII’s were handed over. Some were flown back to Germany by their pilots and hidden in sheds. From the ones that were flown to the collection points of the Inter-Allied Control Commission, some were wrecked during landings or taxiing. After the war, some were sold abroad. Anthony Fokker flew from Germany and smuggled six trains with sixty wagons each full of aeroplanes and tools to Holland. Among these were 120 D.VII’s.
