    ….and it makes me feel greater

    Utterly mad, of course.

    Right enough, it’s hard to beat Hawkwind. Especially from the Calvert period.

    Do you know Uncle Sam’s On Mars? (Actually the Hawklords, that one.)

    Ah… it just gets better with you guys. I’m a big fan of Hawkwind, and though I hate to differ ejh, wasn’t Uncle Sams on Mars on the same albumt that had PRX-5 and Jack of Shadows (based on the Zelazney books as I recall). Orgone Accumulator is genius. Bathory, aren’t they death metal or something? Yello -kind of cool. Who are Shocking Blue and Melanie splintered sunrise?

    You’re quite right.

    Who was Robert Calvert’s “novelist wife Pamela”?

    Ah now, Melanie Safka was a 60s folkie – played at Woodstock IIRC. Shocking Blue would have been a slightly oddball Dutch group, best know for “Venus” which was later covered by Bananarama.

    Why Bathory though?

    WBS, dunno how familiar you are with rebel night favourites the Irish Brigade, but one of their most popular tunes (“Kinky Boots”) was based on a Melanie hit from the early 70s, called “Brand New Key”.

    For whatever that’s worth.

    Is that the “Kinky Boots” I associate with Diana Rigg?

    Somehow, I doubt it very much.

    Though the thought of Ms. Rigg in her leather catsuit forming a tactical alliance with a bunch of bearded, aran jumper wearing Irish folkniks is. . . interesting.

    I dunno, sounds a bit like the troupe in Theatre of Blood

    This seems like a fairly elaborate way of saying you got laid…

    Only in passing, Wednesday. I’ll check it out.

    As for Bathory, you can hardly go wrong with some old Swedish death metal. ūüėČ

    not DFM at all, at all – more of the Dark Epic feel about it dont you think?

    Rrimordial are better.

    Ah, what about Cradle of Filth, or Cathedral, or indeed on a more rocky road, the Almighty who’s lead singer comes from the North?
