You kids and your fancy music players...

...back in my day we had record players. They scratched and hissed and popped but we felt lucky to have them. We had to hand crank the electricity if we wanted to play them. We didn't have any of your new-fangled ipod thingamadoochies.

The musical history of the UK Britpop band Squeeze - tonight's "cover story":

"Take Me I'm Yours" - White Rabbit (originally Squeeze)
"Another Nail For My Heart" - Rubber (originally Squeeze)
"Tempted" - Jools Holland & His Rhythm and Blues Orchestra (originally Squeeze)
"Up The Junction" - Goldfinger (originally Squeeze)
"Labelled With Love (I'll Stay With My Dreams)" - Kevin Rowland (originally Squeeze)
"End Of A Century (live)" - Glenn Tillbrook and Chris Difford (originally Blur)
"Red Light" - Squeeze (originally Merrill Moore)
You might have to scroll down to find the link. I haven't listened to it yet, but it looks interesting. I've heard the End of a Century cut before, it's great.

I'll hard link to the MP3 file here and we'll see how long it works.
